Originally I did this post in June, 2010. How circumstances change! In Iraq, Saddam Hussein was a friend of the U.S. in the 1980s and then he was hanged later on after the 2003 U.S. Invasion. Bashar Al-Assad of Syria was a friend of the U.S. in 2007 and now the U.S. will like to hang him it seems. Moral of the story: It is dangerous to be a friend of the U.S.
Nancy Pelosi did visit Syria in April 2007 and had congenial meeting with Bashar Al-Assad of Syria. Original post here. Al-Assad sings Habibi to Pelosi. ;)
I googled Habibi and it means “baby or my love”
April 4, 2007 post is quite popular.
