Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

U.S. courts Arabs by inviting Syria to peace talks

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The United States' somewhat grudging offer to invite diplomatic adversary Syria to its Middle East peace conference is largely to provide political cover for other Arab states to take part, U.S. officials said.

However, U.S. officials suggested they did so with little enthusiasm because of their disagreements with Damascus over Iraq, Lebanon and its support for Hamas, the militant group and political party that rules the Gaza Strip.

Huh? US diplomacy? Are we actually going to talk to someone who doesn't already agree with us? (Do we still have to be such #@%&$ about it?)

Seriously, though, good move. God willing, something real will come out of this peace conference. Everyone in their respective countries already hates Bush and Olmert; maybe not caring about what the electorate thinks will free them up to do the right thing and implement a real two-state solution.
