Wednesday's attack struck the National Security building in Damascus during a meeting of Cabinet ministers and senior security officials.
State-run TV said some of the officials were seriously wounded and later reported the defense minister killed.
Opposition now using suicide blasts? New tactic or Islamic radicals responsible?
West is seeking Assad's ouster...

I don't think anyone can immediately say that suicide bomber = Islamic. The idea that people think this shows that the propaganda has worked. Only
Islamic fundamentalists use suicide? How about the Japanese suicide squads throughout history?
Think about what Assad has done to thousands of people in that country. If a dictator was shelling your home, had killed your family and you'd lost
absolutely everything, wouldn't you go to such measures for a target like that?
If you've lost everything you ever loved and you have no reason left to live, while you're fighting a dictator like him, you'd probably sacrifice
yourself too. I would. If it means getting revenge on such disgusting people and potentially killing all the heads of the military in one go I'd be
begging to be strapped up and given a car!
Desperate times call of desperate measures, and the people of Syria are desperate.
I was watching footage earlier of the military barracks in Damascus on fire. It's a wonderful sight. Finally those who have been victims of one of
the most despicable regimes in modern times are winning, and not least because of so many defectors. I saw a report a couple of days ago, just after a
senior military official defected, that thousands have now turned on the regime and that this is how they are now attacking Damascus. The numbers of
those affected has increased as Assad attacks random places, and thousands more see that the rebels are actually the good guys and they've been lied
to by their media for months.
This is only going to lead to one thing - Assad driven out, and probably found in six months hiding in a cave and begging for his life. At least I
hope that's what happens.
In the meantime we have to be concerned about the lengths he will go to to hold on, there are fears he'll use chemical weapons against his own people
as a last resort.
