"an embassy warning to be vigilant raised concerns among Americans.... the US embassy advised Americans to avoid demonstrations and review their personal security.... "Unforeseen events or circumstances may occur," .... said the warning posted on the embassy's website"
Or will it be a false-flag attack to be blamed on Syrians?
"Syria hardens stance after US attack; Threatens to end cooperation and demands apology" by Albert Aji, Associated Press | October 30, 2008
DAMASCUS - Syria threatened yesterday to stop cooperating with the United States and Baghdad on security along its Iraqi border if there are more American raids on Syrian territory such as the weekend attack that killed eight people.
The government also demanded Washington apologize for Sunday's cross-border helicopter strike by US special forces.
Good luck getting one of those; we never apologize to anyone. That's what being an AmeriKan is all about!
Syria's order for the closure of an American school and cultural center and an embassy warning to be vigilant raised concerns among Americans living in Damascus. A huge protest against the raid was called for today in Damascus. While Americans have generally been welcomed in Syria, protests in the past have turned violent against US and European targets.
Like they are CLUING YOU IN to SOMETHING, huh? And if we are welcomed, why are we such dinks to Syria?
Iraq also demanded that a crucial security deal under discussion with the US must include a ban on American troops using Iraqi territory to attack neighboring countries. Though Syria has long been viewed by the US as a destabilizing country in the Middle East, attacks on its territory are rare and Damascus has been trying in recent months to change its image and end years of global seclusion.
You mean, by USrael, right?
Syrian President Bashar Assad has pursued indirect peace talks with Israel and says he is open to direct talks as early as next year.
Peace talks with Israel? That's a good waste of time and effort to get nowhere.
Syria also has agreed to establish diplomatic ties with Lebanon, a country it used to dominate, for the first time in its history. But the United States still accuses Syria of doing too little to prevent foreign fighters from crossing into Iraq. Syria says it is doing all it can to safeguard the long, porous border.
Yeah, the U.S. seals up its southern border real good, doesn't it? The world has to look at us and say, "What a bunch of assholes!"
With tensions between the United States and Syria on the rise, the US embassy advised Americans to avoid demonstrations and review their personal security. Today's government-sanctioned protest was expected to draw tens of thousands.
And CUI BONO, 'eh?
And at least THEIR GOVERNMENT sanctions PROTESTS!!
Ours HATES THEM!!!
"Unforeseen events or circumstances may occur that could cause the US Embassy in Damascus to close to the public for an unspecified period of time," said the warning posted on the embassy's website. Despite the warning, some Americans living in Syria said they were not too worried.
"I feel that it might be tough for me to say that I am an American, for a while, but I don't have any concerns for my personal safety," said Kate Alberswerth, a 24-year-old New York native who is studying Arabic in Damascus. Though authorities generally keep Syria tightly controlled, violence at protests occasionally has erupted in the past. --more--"
So EXPECT SOMETHING, MSM-shit-eating Amurkns!!!!
