With very little information to go on yet, initial reports are that there has been an explosion in or near the U.S. Embassy in damascus accompanied by reports of gun fire.
 



themedialine.org
At least one explosion accompanied by gunfire close to the United States Embassy in Damascus was reported by eyewitnesses on Tuesday morning.

A large plume of smoke emanating from the embassy area was seen across the Syrian capital.

The news comes the day after the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the U.S. Top Al-Qa'ida figures warned there would be further attacks against U.S. interests in the near future.

With the threats from Al Qeada still fresh in our minds and on the anniversary of 9/11 this would serve to remind us who we are dealing with. What is known right now is that security forces have sealed off the Rawda area, which houses other embassies, security installations and senior officials' residences.

UPDATE:
Four gunmen were killed in a shootout with guards when they tried to storm the embassy in Damascus, according to reports.


More information is sure to be forthcoming in this provocative event.

I read the report and it quite amazing. Thank God George ordered the ambassador home before the attack. And thank God the Syrian forces foiled the attack. Only one SYRIAN guard was killed. My God, just think about it, a SYRIAN GUARD gave his life protecting an AMERICAN Embassy. MY GOD, do you think George Bush will give credit to the loyaty of the SYRIAN government for supplying such a loyal security force? He should have a press release praising the SYRIAN government and security forces for being so loyal to the US government.

Think it will happen, or will you hear the excuse "He was just doing a job"...........

Just imagin what would have happened if SYRIA didnt supply such a effective security force. My guess is we would have been at war with syria the very next day. GOD BLESS THE SYRIAN SECURITY FORCE!
