A propos of, um, nothing really, I do want to recommend Joshua Landis' Syria Comment. Syria's not the most pressing issue in the world these days, I know, but Landis goes in-depth (really in-depth) into the sort of political and cultural issues that matter across the Middle East. Start with this long post touching on the Islamization of the Baathist movement and go from there.
