What will make Obama's presidency an extraordinary one is that he will dismantle and destroy American hegemony in the world. Like 911, he will destroy in short order what it took decades of blood, treasure and steadfastness to build.
Ahmadinejad publicly taunted the stupidity and gullibility of the Obama administration. The Iranian president suggested jocularly that "no-one had enlightened her" about the depth of Iranian-Syrian relations. I certainly could have. Any of us could. Syria is an Iranian vassal. Always was. Whoever advised the White House that they would abandon Islam for the great Satan should be strung up by their gonads. Such stupidity is inexcusable.
The only thing more embarrassing and pathetic about this story is that Obama will come back begging and bowing too, I am sure.

Assad drew laughs when he told the correspondents that he and Ahmadinejad had just signed "a separation accord, but because of a bad translation "we ended up signing an accord scrapping visas.
DEBKAfile's military sources report that this clause facilitates the passage of Iranian military into Syria and between Syria and Lebanon.The Iranian president suggested jocularly that "no-one had enlightened her" about the depth of Iranian-Syrian relations and called on the United States to "pack up and leave the region." "A new Middle East - one without Zionists and imperialists - was quickly emerging," he said.
Assad expressed Syria's full support for Iran's uranium enrichment activities. "To forbid an independent state the right to enrichment amounts to a new colonialist process in the region," he said. . .
