Good friends in far away places 

How do you spell "desperate for friends"? A-S-S-A-D:

"Syria on Monday voiced understanding for China's anti-secession law, saying Syria firmly supports China's efforts in safeguarding national sovereignty and territorial integrity... Syria opposes any form of Taiwan independence, Muallem said, stressing that Syria will consistently stand by China in fighting against attempts of Taiwan independence secessionists."
Mind you, the cozying up between Syria and China significantly predates the current Lebanon crisis. Syria has, after all, been a good customer at China's missile technology mart for years, and has been drudgingly building a relationship that is "a model of bilateral ties of solidarity and cooperation between developing countries."

What was it about "bitter after being snubbed for membership in the 'Axis of Evil,' Libya, China, and Syria today announced they had formed the
'Axis of Just as Evil'"? Well, maybe not quiet Libya anymore, but since the original Axis of Evil has also lost one member, maybe the two axes can join in and form one square of evil.
