Meanwhile, Assad arms Hezbollah

That the Communist-backed mullahcracy in Iran was arming Hezbollah was no surprise; neither was the rooting interest of Iran's Syrian ally.  However, there were a number of foolish pundits and politicians - including one who would be my junior Senator (Ignorant Comment of the Day) - who felt talks with the Syrian regime could lead it to shift away from it's quarter-century alliance with the mullahs.

One would hope the information relayed here (see ninth item) would convince them of their silliness, but I won't hold my breath.
