Explaining the Fine Print

The Syrians are in North Korea:

Kim Yong Nam, head of the North's rubber-stamp legislature and titular head of state, had "a friendly talk" with the Syrian delegation, led by Saaeed Eleia Dawood, director of the organizational department of Syria's Baath Arab Socialist Party, the North's Korean Central News Agency reported.

The Syrian official expressed satisfaction that the "friendly and cooperative ties" between the two countries "are growing stronger under the deep care" of Syria's President Bashar Al-Assad and North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, KCNA said.

I'm sure the Syrians are pointing out the fine print in their contract that absolves Syria of responsibilty for lost or destroyed property in their care in case of an "act of Israel."

The New Axis of Evil is in evidence. I'm reasonably sure that Damascus will regret this choice.
