Posted on 09/12/2013 8:33:15 PM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist
Chinese diplomats in Syria as well as Beijing's embassy are under regular threat from rebel attacks, China's ambassador to Syria has confided to local media outlets.
In an interview with the Global Times [ link at site], Zhang Xun, China's ambassador to Syria said that Beijing's embassy has increasingly been caught in the cross-hairs of fighting between rebel and government forces in recent months...
Zhang said that in another attack last month, Syrian rebels fired mortar shells at President Bashar al-Assad's motorcade. They missed the Syrian leader but hit a building that was located just 10 meters from the Chinese embassy...
Another diplomat from the embassy told the Global Times that Chinese personnel have been targeted directly by rebel forces, particularly when they are meeting with Syrian officials. Indeed, according to a Want China Times [ link at site] report, Zhang was nearly killed in a sniper attack during a meeting he held with Syria's foreign minister...
There are also reports that the rebels are actively plotting attacks against the Chinese embassy, presumably in retaliation for China's continued support for the Assad regime. The Want China Times report said that a brigade commander in the Free Syrian Army, one of the rebel forces fighting the Syrian government, has vowed to launch a "full-scale attack" on the Chinese embassy.
Meanwhile, the Global Times claims that a local driver the embassy had employed was arrested earlier this year by Syrian authorities for allegedly planning to place bombs under the embassy car. The article, which said the driver confessed to the crime, added that he had been recruited by Syrian rebel forces during a trip to Jordan in February...

Kosovo again... we bombed the chinese embassy marked by kla rebels.
Have the rebels taken a base? A convoy? That’s Russian, I was just wondering how much equipment Syria has ‘lost’ to the rebels. This whole mess gets more and more convoluted with every passing day.
Yes it is. The CIA needs to get out too, we have no reason to be supplying rebels
Pissing off China and Russia is a good way to end up dead, especially for Islamic rebels.
And, they also have Hezbollah and the Al Quods (Iranian) after them too.
Someone else who speaks Chinglish.
I'm assuming that's the royal "we" as the CIA is clearly assisting the Muslim Brotherhood.
So.... maybe we got Bible prediction all wrong.
Maybe it’s the US that attacks Israel and starts Armageddon.
Our future allies at work.
Destroying Christian villages, beheading opponents, shooting POWs, trying to assassinate diplomats....a busy bunch, aren’t they?
China state-owned firms have projects and personnel in Syria. If their interests are at risk, the response will not be unbelievably small.
Tribulation starts when Damascus falls.
Bible predicts the red horse comes down through Damascus, Syria to trample the holy city underfoot and set up a time of faux peace.
Two things need to happen...the fall of Damascus and the removal of the United States as a superpower for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation. 0bama has 3 years left in office, Putin is trying to salvage Syria (but we know if we strike ...Israel is under whose boots to be trampled?), Daniel 11:21-31
Now there are some minor details that elude a few things, but there are some prophecies that claim Israel is aligned with Satan during this time. Interesting that Israel is indeed supporting this proxy war with Syria/Russia and Qatar and like the United States is arming the rebels. Isaiah 28: 14-19.
And follow all this up with the generally accepted idea that this ‘great peacemaker’ that takes over Jerusalem deceives many. Oddly these days I chuckle at the number of comments I read on FR regarding how Freepers can’t believe they agree with Putin! Putin saving Christians, Putin fighting jihadists, Putin more willing to call the terrorists, terrorists. Do not underestimate that an ally of Russia, Syria, China is Iran an Islamic state.
We do indeed live in interesting times.
