"The explosion took place in Abu Rummaneh, a well-guarded upscale area in
central Damascus where the Ministry of Defense and other government buildings are located.
A truck bomb exploded in the same high-security zone on Aug. 15, injuring at
least three people. Four senior government officials also were killed in a bomb
blast in Damascus on July 18. " Washpost
(irony alert) These are some bad assed guerrillas. They are getting their butts kicked all over the country. Their sympathisers are being rooted out of sympathetic neighborhoods and then shot in the streets and still, they can infiltrate army headquarters in the capital and set off truck bombs. I am impressed.
The "guerrillas" seem to have missed Assad again. What a shame. The timing would have been grand. I can see the scene on national TV with BHO on the stage at Charlotte to announce that once again a terrorist leader has been eliminated from the world, and this time by his own people.
I feel sure the jihadis will try again soon. pl
