The boys are back in town

Then Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs, and with a bust country still able to put a delegation in the Damascus Four Seasons, Micheál Martin meets Bashar al-Assad in 2009. It's been a long strange road since then for both of them, but yesterday an Irish election and a Syrian cessation of hostilities now have them in their strongest power position in years. Trump might be the most visible symbol of a global political capriciousness, but he's not the only one.
