Syrian President Assad's brother-in-law and defense minister killed by blast at high-level meeting

BLOGMAN'S EDITORIAL: Seems to me that there is a WAR going on in Syria, not a civil war. A civil war is a war in which the citizens of the nation fight between themselves. In a War, foreign troops invade or attempt to invade a Sovereign nation and take over rulership of that nation. In the case of Libya, foreign troops and mercenaries were employed, along with NATOMERICA bombing the nation back to the stone age, to accomplish Regime Change in that nation. By the way, there still is no Regime in Libya, and if there is one in the future it will be far more brutal than Gadaffi's regime. Just as the majority of Iraqis long for the glory days of Saddam Hussein, the majority of Libyans pine for the days of Gaddafi. What is happening in Syria is no different. It is a foreign funded, and foreign armed invasion using foreign troops with some bought and paid for Syrians as token 'Rebels' to do the bidding of NATOMERICA. It is an INVASION disguised as a Civil War. Whenever NATOMERICA, which is the biggest war machine in the history of the world, wants to invade a Sovereign nation, that nation better start praying hard for it is destined to be destroyed, nay decimated, to a far greater extent than any Civil War could ever destroy it. NATOMERICA is a WAR CORPORATION; its business is WAR, and just like General Motors must create automobiles to stay in business, NATOMERICA must create WARS to stay in business. The War machines needs to be constantly fueled just like an automobile, and the bigger the machine gets, the more fuel it needs. So expect bigger and deadlier wars to be created in this decade. But all this was prophesied long ago, and the time for fulfillment of prophecy arrives sooner or later; the only question is do we have the understanding to realize that what we are witnessing is the fulfillment of prophecy and turn to The Living God, who is the real power in all Creation, not the warmongers who exist only to bring death and misery to this world!

Matthew 24: 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8  All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Syrian Defense Minister Gen. Daoud Rajha was killed by a suicide bombing attack at a national security building in Damascus. His deputy – Assad’s brother-in-law Assef Shawkat – has also been mortally wounded by the blast. Another prominent governmental figure targeted by the attack is Syrian intelligence chief Hisham Bekhtyar. Bekhtyar is currently undergoing surgery for injuries sustained in the blast, a security source told Reuters. There have also been multiple reports saying more explosions have been heard at an army base in Damascus. Reuters has reported about five blasts close to the military base. However, there have not been any official comments confirming the latest information.  
The bomber who detonated the explosive worked as a bodyguard for President Bashar Assad’s inner circle, the news agency cites its sources as saying. It also cites a Facebook statement by Liwa Al-Islam, a Syrian rebel Islamist group which has claimed responsibility for the attack. The Free Syrian Army also claimed responsibility for the attack, according to spokesman Qassim Saadedine. A rebel commander identified as Riyad al-Assad says the bomb was planted inside a room where senior government officials were meeting. However, he denied information which suggested the deadly blast was a suicide bombing. The Syrian government put the blame for the "terrorist bomb attack" on "hired hands" and pledged to pursue perpetrators and wipe out "criminal gangs," state TV reported. A meeting of Syrian ministers and security officials was taking place on the premises at the time of the blast. Several top Syrian officials have been badly wounded by the bombing. The area around the national security building in Rawda district has been cordoned off. Damascus has already appointed a new defense minister, state TV reports. Gen Fahad Jassim al-Freij, who was previously the chief of staff of the armed forces, will now take the top cabinet post. It is the highest-profile killing of a Syrian official during the 17-month-long conflict in the country. Earlier lower-ranking officials and military officers had reportedly been killed or abducted by the armed opposition. The attack comes amid a major armed opposition offensive in the city. The fourth day of fighting has seen gunfights erupting within sight of Bashar Assad’s presidential palace.
The violence comes ahead of a UN Security Council session which is tasked with deciding whether to prolong an observer mission in Syria before it expires on Friday. All members agree that the mission should continue its work, but differ on the wording of a resolution which would allow it happen. Russia and China propose a neutral resolution calling on a cessation of all hostilities. Western members have called for a stronger document which would open the way for sanctions or even military action against the Syrian government if it fails to stop using heavy weapons against the rebels and withdrawal its troops from the streets.

Mafioso tactics: Smaller countries must fall when US says so

Resorting to blackmail tactics in order to push through a UN resolution allowing the use of external force shows that the US is extremely frustrated that Assad has been able to hold on to power in Syria for so long, activist Brian Becker told RT.
