WASHINGTON) — A senior State Department official says the Syrian government has been told it must immediately suspend its diplomatic and consular missions in the United States.

The order Tuesday essentially shutters the Syrian embassy in Washington and its honorary consulates in Troy, Mich., and Houston, Texas, and forces all personnel who are not legal U.S. residents to leave the country.

There are more stories coming out each day about jihadi from all over the world joining the rebels and butchering Syrian soldiers, Christians, and anyone else who gets within range.

The proper response is to have a snit and stop talking to the government fighting them.

Got it.

The one Barry follows is white and powdery. As for the people making the decisions I don't know what color their line is.

I agree....The rebels are just as bad. It’s a civil war and we had no business being there AND assisting the rebels.

Our government is on the (losing) side of the head chopping child molesters in the Syrian conflict, a ragged mob of the very lowest savage missing links from the bottom of the islamic barrel, who are not even Syrian citizens, financed by our partners in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states.

I believe the Christians were at least somewhat protected under their existing government.

Wow! So capitulating and acting subservient to other countries DOESN’T work! Who knew? It all seemed so simple and clear when you were getting stoned with the Choom Gang, huh Barry.

Dear Barry Obama. You are a weak, pathetic POS. Please, for the love of God and America. Resign! And take your imbecile Biden with you.

"Obama has made it clear to the world that when confronted with a crisis, he will do nothing. This reduces his options to zero and puts the United States and the world into a situation where rogue nations, non-state organizations, and gangs of thugs can do as they please with no fear of any meaningful response from the U.S. It makes the world a much more dangerous place."

Thanks to Daniel Greenfield for the remarks below to explain where we are with Obozo as POTUS in The Post American order.

The Post-American order stands for nothing except its own dismantling. That is why Obama sets red lines that he won’t enforce and issues threats that he doesn’t mean.

The only thing less appealing than selfishness is the complete absence of self. The only thing less appealing than empire is an anti-imperialism that so thoroughly negates its own power that it has no influence and no reason to exist.

Post-American America exists to destroy itself. Until that changes, it has nothing to offer the world except membership in a suicide pact.

I’d say they are worse. At least Assad kept the islamo whackos in check. Now the muslim beheaders are terrorizing everyone, including their own.

No official visits from John Kerry.

I suppose they’ll have to get by somehow.

Perhaps a few of Theresa’s gin-soaked raisins?

So Obama is gearing up to have a war in Syria to increase his street cred vis-a-vis Putin?

So Obama and Kerry just give a green light for the killing to continue.

Deaths in the thousands will not delay any tee times or happy hours in this White House.

Thanks mojito. It makes sense, the US diplomatic corps has its hands full right now with the Uganda Homosexuality Crisis.
