Israel and Syria have today announced Turkish-mediated indirect talks

The agreement in Doha between the Hezbollah-led opposition and the U.S. forces will no doubt lend an incentive for Israel to strike a deal with Syria.
President Bush's only contribution to these developments was to deliver an obdurate and surreal statement in which he embraced PM Fouad Siniora, precisely at a time when Siniora wanted distance not a hug.

Readers of the blog recall that the result reached in Doha has been long-anticipated here: from December 2007
