Syrian and France coordinating on Security Council

Sorry for the delay. I was slammed by a deadline and couldn’t come up for air. Thus, I missed the State of the Union. Please see George Paine’s entry on Warblogging for a good analysis of the speech.
In other news, Stratfor is reporting that the French and Syrian presidents are planning to coordinate their efforts on the U.N. Security Council to avoid war in Iraq. Their source is the Syrian Arab News Agency. Unfortunately, there seem to be no further details. I will see what I can come up with.
