Grill, baby, grill.

President Obama sheepishly rescinded his July 4 party invitation to Iran’s murderous mullahcracy.

But some dictators and thugs are in luck: Obama’s hot dog diplomacy has returned to Syria and Venezuela. Fire up the grill:

The Obama administration has decided to return an ambassador to both Venezuela and Syria after a diplomatic hiatus with both countries, FOX News confirmed Wednesday.

The United States and Venezuela have been working to reinstate ambassadors to each other’s capitals since Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in April at the Summit of the Americas, a State Department official said. The move would reverse a tit-for-tat the countries had last year, when Venezuela kicked out the U.S. ambassador and the United States did the same to Venezuela’s envoy.

“The necessary measures are being taken” to return the diplomats to their posts, the official said. “It’s in the best interests of both countries.”

The diplomatic freeze with Syria dates back much further, and a restoration of ties with the Middle Eastern country is seen as part of a broader effort to achieve a comprehensive peace between Arabs and Israelis in the region.

This diplomatic effort is said by knowledgeable sources to include a quiet campaign by the Obama administration to “bring Hamas into the (peace) process.”
