In 2006, Mike, Joe and I visited the Krak des Chevaliers in Southern Syria. (Ah, the work of youth.) We wandered the old crusader castle, tried to puzzle out the strange history of the place, and ran around the moat like idiots. Now the Free Syrian Army is engaged in a deadly struggle with the forces of the Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Damascus. Ugly days.
