Blasts at US Syrian Embassy

Hot on the heels of the 9/11 anniversary -
Gunmen apparently blew up a car outside the U.S. Embassy and exchanged fire with Syrian guards in a bold attack inside Damascus' diplomatic neighborhood Tuesday, a witness said. It was not immediately clear if there were casualties. A U.S. Marine guard who answered the phone at the Embassy would not provide any information. In Washington, the State Department said it had no immediate information and was looking into news reports of the attack.

The Real Effect
Is this the watershed event that will justify war with Syria and eventually Iran? With recent Hezbollah activities in Lebanon, Israel's incursion and other factors, this just might be. Of course I have stated repeatedly that Iran and Syria are in the crosshairs and that is only a matter of time. Keep watch on this situation...
