Looks like Syria is leaving Ahmadinjead on his Own.

It can be inferred from the article that Syria deems new relations between Syria and the United States as more feasible than relations between Syria and Iran. Perhaps Ahmadinejad is running out of money to sway Syria anymore. This does beg the question as to how many friends Ahmadinejad has remaining.


Syria's First Lady has exclusively told Sky News she would welcome the Obamas to Damascus.

Asma al Assad's comments are the latest in a series of signs US Syrian relations are improving after years of tension.
"The fact is President Obama is young," she said, "and President Assad is also very young as well, so maybe it is time for these young leaders to make a difference in the world".
And she gladly envisioned welcoming Michelle Obama and her husband in a presidential palace in Damascus in the near future.
"I can see myself hosting them in Damascus in the old town, meeting with people, getting a sense of how we live, who we are and what Syria's about," she said.
The comments follow news America is to send an ambassador to Syria for the first time in four years.
It follows President Obama's offer of a "new beginning" in relations between the US and the Muslim world in general.
Relations were strained under the Bush administration, which was critical of the support Syria gave to Hamaz and Hizbollah.
Asma al Assad was born and raised in London and only moved here after marrying Syrian President Bashar al Assad nine years ago.
This week she is launching the latest phase in a youth movement called Massar, which is one of her great passions.
She told Sky News Syria needs to make more progress to benefit all its people.
"What we are trying to do is make sure the progress we are making across the country is inclusive to everybody or as many people as possible, whether it's economic, political or social."
