European Union strengthening ties with Syria

I think you all need to be in the mood to read this post, so to put you in the proper mood of love, understanding and Kumbaya, let's go to the videotape (no, I'm not going to play Kumbaya for you). We're going to see just what the world needs now, and of course, it's love, sweet love.

Isn't that why the European Union wants to snuggle up to Assad?

A European Union official is to visit Damascus Thursday in an effort to improve ties with Syria, which has allied itself with Iran, Hizbullah and Hamas.

EU Commissioner for Enlargement Stefan Fule wants to activate the EU-Syrian Partnership agreement that was signed in 2004 following years of negotiations. The agreement was put on ice after the assassination of Lebanon’s former anti-Syrian Prime Minister, Rafik Hariri, in a bloody car bomb massacre in Beirut the following year.

Last year, the EU said it was prepared to sign a Syrian-European Partnership Agreement, and the ceremony was planned for Luxembourg on Tuesday. However, Damascus has asked to postpone the ceremony, explaining that it wants more time to consider the agreement’s impact on its economy.
What could go wrong?
