Syrian loyalists break into US embassy in Damascus
PROTESTERS loyal to President Bashar al Assad broke into the US embassy compound in the Syrian capital Damascus today, ******* news agency reported. Loyalists also reportedly tried to break into the French embassy. The attacks came as regime supporters protested outside both embassies for a third day.
The US and French ambassadors angered the Syrian regime last week when they visited the flashpoint city of Hama, which has seen some of the biggest protests against Assad's rule.
***** IRAN hostage crisis repeated ???
Syria: Assad supporters attack US and French embassies
Supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have broken into the US and French embassies in Damascus.
A US embassy official told the BBC there had been physical damage there, but no-one had been injured. Windows were smashed and a Syrian flag raised.
Earlier, guards at the French embassy fired into the air to disperse a crowd.
The protests come days after the US and French ambassadors visited the central city of Hama, where a massive anti-government rally was held on Friday.
US PRESIDENT Barack Obama said Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad has missed a series of chances for reform, as he also denounced an attack on the US embassy in Damascus. Mr Assad, Mr Obama told CBS television today, has "missed opportunity after opportunity to present a genuine reform agenda.
"More broadly, I think that increasingly you're seeing President Assad lose legitimacy in the eyes of his people," Mr Obama said.
In the same week that a US ambassador is interfering with a sovereign nation internal affairs the US complaining about the embassy.
He also scolded Syria for allowing pro-regime activists to attack the US embassy, saying that Washington had "sent a clear message that nobody can be messing with our embassy and that we will take whatever actions necessary in order to protect our embassy".
I think the Obama regime has lost its legitimacy in the Middle East and at home.
Israeli experts: Demise of Syria regime is only a matter of time
Despite using considerable force, killing 1,500 civilians, demonstrations intensify; Alawite minority’s days in power numbered, say analysts.

Israeli defense officials said in a recent analysis it's just a matter of time before Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime falls. This line echoes comments by Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who last month told Haaretz he thought Assad's regime would fall within several months.
Over the past three months, more than 2,000 soldiers unwilling to put down the anti-regime protests throughout the country have deserted the Syrian army, which has been showing major signs of fatigue.

http://www.france24.com/en/20110717-...assad-violenceAFP - At least 30 people were killed in 24 hours in the central Syrian city of Homs in clashes between supporters and opponents of President Bashar al-Assad's regime, a human rights activist said on Sunday.
"More than 30 civilians have been killed over the past 24 hours in Homs in clashes that broke out late on Saturday between the opposition and supporters of the regime," said Rami Abdel Rahman of the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
He said the clashes came after three regime supporters kidnapped last week were killed and their dismembered bodies were returned to their relatives on Saturday.
