Baby Strollers For Sale
Because the worst was averted in the attack on the U.S. embassy in Damascus, the incident will amount to little more than a one-day headline here. But it represents more than that. The White House rebuts claims that its Middle East strategy is fueling terrorism by citing attacks on U.S. interests (WTC, Dar es Salaam, Nairobi, etc) that occurred before the invasion of Iraq. So how have our interests in Syria fared in the past? Here are some Damascus post reports from this website, which is used by many in the U.S. Foreign Service; each is from a different person:
October 2005: Security concerns? "Nothing major. I walked all over with a baby in a stroller and felt safe. I will always be grateful that I got the chance to live in Syria."Stuff happens....
October 2005: Security concerns? "None. This is the absolute safest country in the world. People are so nice!" Knowing what you now know, would you still go there? "Yes. It is really a nice post. It is very calm, though so if you're looking for adventure and parties, this is not the place to go to."
July 2005: Security concerns? "Almost none. There are always many people about, and the streets are generally safe for women." Interesting/fun things to do: "Think simple and enjoy getting back to a more leisurely, active, healthier definition of fun."
December 2004: Security concerns? "Honestly, none! Syria has been very safe for me and my family. Violent crime is almost unheard of; which is why it is a welcome change from the US! This is a very good post for families with children. You can get out and around the city fairly easily with no worry of serious crime or injury."
November 2004: Security concerns? "Damascus is very, very safe. Crime appears to be almost nonexistent."
May 2000: Security concerns? "Security is good. Syria may harbor terrorist groups, but they are heavily watched and controlled here."
May 2000: "The best way to enjoy Syria is to get out and experience it."
