(AP) DAMASCUS, Syria - Two strong explosions shook the Syrian capital Thursday, sending a plume of thick black smoke into the sky.
The explosions were in the Qazaz neighborhood, where a Syrian intelligence agency has its headquarters.
The explosions happened just before 8 a.m., when employees are usually arriving at work.
CBS News' George Baghdadi, reporting from the scene, says about 40 burned-out cars and possibly dozens of badly burned bodies were scattered in front of the intelligence office.

Looks like Iran switched sides.
Terror is a double-edged sword. Sooner or later, Damascus was going to feel its own steel.
Either that or someone in the resistance finally cracked open a Chemistry book.
The religion of peace is at war again. They hate so stinking much that they divided their gutter religion in two parties and they hate each others guts and kill each other at will. Amazing how they hate so much. Either accept our brand of thinking or we will kill you! Oh, and if you don’t side with one or the other side of it, we will blow you up also! Great. Wonderful. Such peaceful, loving, caring, murdering thugs.
ever read about Detroit and Chicago ?
I haven’t heard of bombs going off killing and maiming dozens of people in Detroit and Chicago. Sure there way too much violence in those two cites, but equating it to middle east violence, IMO, is a stretch.
Please accept corrected version:

This overseas crap is just a diversion from domestic issues; our country has been “fundamentally changed” and we’re supposed to think Syria is important?
We no longer have the luxury of pretending to care about people halfway around the world with whom we don’t share a single trait in common.
Just give it time FRiend, give it time.
Come to think of it, if the Messiah is defeated that might happen. On the other hand, if he declares martial law and suspends the election, the riots (actually the rebellion)would occur elsewhere.
You will see it in Detroit and Chicago when the Muslims in Dearborn, MI feel sufficiently disrespected.
The crazy mo’s have redone the phrase: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”.
It’s now: “The friend of my friend is my enemy”.
I am rooting for a protracted Syrian civil war. The more men and materiel that are expended by that terror state the better for Israel and the U.S.
Real life Freddy vs. Jason. They just picked teams.
“I’ll take Achmaad”.
“O.K., then I’ll take Mohammad”.
...and so on.
The People’s Front of Judea vs The Judean People’s Front
Yes, when Muslims keep busy killing each other they have less time to kill infidels. May they war with themselves from Morocco clear across to Lahore.
You just wonder how long Assad can keep this up before his own military realizes they don’t need him...
They sound like progressives when you put it like that.
When I first saw this on the news this morning, the first thing that popped into my head was wondering if we are seeing the beginning of Isaiah 17th chapter prophecy on Damascus about to be fulfilled.

The Republic you save may be your own.
Our Republic is going to be saved, it is just uncertain if it will be saved ‘clean’ or if it will be saved ‘dirty’.
As long as I see 0bama and the rest of his crew ending up before a military tribunal to answer for their crimes, I’m good with either approach.
Until just a couple weeks ago there had been no protesting, etc. in Damascus. The mideast news folks have been reporting that Damascus had not been affected by ‘rab spring stuff at all, showing the occasional pic of Damascus operating as usual. That’s why Basher still had his trademark stuff-eating-grin on his mush. That grin disapeared a couple days ago and now it looks like Syria is going to get the “full Libyan” treatment. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of dirtbagz.
Terrible for the people of Damascus - who are generally well-educated and secular. The people doing this are the same ones who make life hell in Iraq.
Many Christian refugees from Iraq have fled to Damascus. Now they find that hell follows them.
Assad’s not a nice guy, but the only thing keeping Christian’s from getting slaughtered there like they are now in Egypt.
...about 40 burned-out cars and possibly dozens of badly burned bodies were scattered in front of the intelligence office.
Ain’t no difference between the people doing the killing in Detroit and Chicago or Damascus, Baghdad, Kabul (etal).
And I applaud their efforts.
Let those ignorant bastards slaughter each other.
What I disagree with is throwing the lives of people who actually care, at that, like confetti at a parade and expecting me not only to stand and cheer at the loss, but to fund it. Yeah. Then I have a problem.
Yeah, just wait until the election.
The opposition to the Alawite-dominated Baathist regime is led by the Muslim Brotherhood and supported by Al Qaeda.
You can believe it’s gonna happen. It’s gonna happen. Where do ya think the bulk of Saddam’s weaponry went?
Good post your #25.
The religion of pieces will never cease to amaze me.
