"The United States has closed its embassy in Damascus and pulled all diplomats and U.S. staff out of the country, the State Department said Monday. The decision comes two days after Russia and China vetoed a United Nations resolution condemning Syria’s violent repression of anti-government demonstrators, whose opposition to the government is threatening to become an all-out civil war." [editor's note: If it's a "civil war," it's apparently one in which one side has been armed and aided, possibly even initiated, by the US and its allies, tantamount to invasion by proxy - TLK] (02/06/12)
