Report: Assad Gives U.S. 24 Hours to Respond to Letter Threatening Action Against Any Further Israeli Strikes
MAY 6, 2013 9:05 AM
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad warned Monday that any further Israeli action on Syrian territory would necessitate a declaration of war.
The Kuwaiti newspaper Alrai reported that Assad sent a letter to Washington through Moscow to warn that any new Israeli military action would evoke an immediate response. It said Assad expected an answer from U.S. officials within 24 hours.
Sunday, Lebanons Al Mayadeen TV considered close to the regime of President Assad -quoted a Syrian official as saying that the country had stationed missile batteries aimed at Israel in the aftermath of alleged Israeli air strikes on a Damascus military facility.
Earlier in the day Syrian Information Minister Omran Zoabi said that alleged Israeli air strikes against three targets on the outskirts of Damascus open the door to all possibilities.
The ministers comments came after an emergency cabinet meeting organized to respond to what a Western source said was a new strike on Iranian missiles bound for Lebanons Hezbollah.
Meanwhile, reports indicated that Israel took steps to assuage President Assad on Monday following the air strikes around Damascus.
The Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported that Israeli officials informed Assad through diplomatic channels that it did not intend to meddle in Syrias civil war.
I’m your huckleberry.
Hey Assad, go look out that window, here comes your response.
The proper response would be "Nuts" but then we have our von Bismarck's as Herr Kerry and Herr Obama.
I’m guessing Obama’s response will be, “You go girl!”
Israel is the one you gotta look for. The US is kitty cat now.
Syria calls Russia and tells them to warn the US to do something?
Maybe the US should call Russia and ask them to call China and order take out?
Sounds about as sensible as the article.
Me...me....pick me. Let me reply.
Please....please...please. I’ll do a good job. PICK ME!
Obama has made the United States ‘the weak horse’ of Osama BinLaden’s dreams.
O is golfing could you give him 48 hrs?
Strong letter to follow!!
Sounds like a squirrely school-boy passing notes about the girl in his class!!!!
Through Moscow?!? What—are they? Preteens with an attitude????
In the meantime, Kerry is getting his clock cleaned by Putin.
I take threats like this seriously. If two pansy punks can shut down Boston, twenty could take down ten cities. Nuke Saudi off the planet. They have the money to buy intel to fry would-be terrorists and don.t
How is terrorizing your customers good business?
If Ozone orders any action buy U.S. forces it will be a Wag-The-Dog to counter Wed. hearings and nothing else!
Not a major story on Google or Bing.
Seems this should be front and center. Isn’t this a way of getting pulled into ww3?
