Since the opening of the Radisson Blu hotel in Addis Ababa in January 2012, the hotel has been known to welcome and organize a great number of successful events for its local and international clients. However, the hotel has not organized an event of its own yet and says “this is about to change” tomorrow Sep 10th, as it is preparing to host a party for Ethiopian New Year’s Eve that the management of the hotel hopes “will be remembered for a long time.”

President Obama has announced that he intends to launch a military strike against Syria in response to his strongly held conviction that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons against its people. It is not at all clear, though, when or even if he will receive approval from Congress or from many (indeed, any) other governments for his initiative.
Regardless of whether he receives domestic and international support for military action against Syria, there is a more modest but symbolically important step that the Obama administration could take that does not need congressional approval: breaking diplomatic relations with Syria.
