Kerry prepares for trip to Tehran

I certainly did not see this item in the US press, but it appears that Senator Kerry is preparing for a trip to Tehran. [Via L'Orient-Le Jour, Beirut]. This follows the visit by Senator Bill Nelson (Florida) to Damascus.

Meanwhile, the 25 EU heads of government, led by Jacques Chirac, have condemned Syria and Iran. Lebanese Prime Minister is in Moscow to ask Vladimir Putin to restrain Syria (gee, couldn't Siniora just talk to President Lahoud? Siniora is allegedly a close friend of Asad, to boot). Mystery and intrigue abound.
