Another diplomat shot in Syria

The Charge d'Affaires (the acting Ambassador) of the United Arab Emirates has been shot in Damascus.

It happened outside the incredible UAE embassy near the Umayyid Square. A man shot at the car carrying the diplomat, but he was unhurt, UAE officials said.

The attacker was arrested. He's thought to be a former UAE resident who was anrgy at being expelled from his country.

The attack comes just a day after news that the US Defence Attache was shot near the border earlier this month.

Heck, that sounds worrying. Don't you trust Syrian security now? Anyway, you left a comment on my blog so thanks for it! I;m back now and will hopefully be posting lots more ramblings and grumblings about my time in the country. :)

the clock is now on full alert.

baby assad is said to be calling foreign capitals....asking for "asylum, in case of emergency."


This cat is also feverishly burning up many banks "routing" systems, and the banking community is WELL aware of all the recent money that is bbeing moved OUT OF Syria and into European, and Carribean Banks.

The exodus has slowly begun.....the clock is ticking LOUDLY - and many in the world are aware.

The EU backed away from their threats to Iran after the strong stand that Iran took,that indicate that the only languesh that tha west understand is strength,so Syria should stop appoligising and start attacking verbely and covertly the the west and their Arab traiters,and prpare for the assult which is coming no matter what it does and how much is coaperating.

The EU backed away cause the yhave no army, and no will to fight anyone.

They are pussy's, thsi is not new and the world knows that.

dont make the mistake in thinking the US is the same way, Saddam is eating Doritos smelling like shit in some 2X4 cell,, and the country is fucked up because of their no believing that the US is not the Europeans (read -spineless losers with ni will to back up anything they stand for)).....so if it is force you want from the WEST, you lose every single time.

Dieing with dignity for an Arab is beter than living with shame ,I meant for a syrian as the Arab lost their dignety except for Syria.

Love your children more than you hate anyone or anything, and then you can be higher than a dog.

I am glad that you are not .
