Huge? Really? How huge?
If it wasn’t mushroom shaped I don’t care.

Damascus residents and state-run TV say a huge explosion has shaken the city.
The blast followed by heavy gunfire caused panic in the capital, where a massive car bombing on Thursday near the ruling Baath party headquarters killed at least 53 people.

Lurch is on an official state visit to Kyrzakhstan right now, but I'm sure he'll get right on it after he meets with Jenghis Khan.

The interesting thing is that the violence in Iraq and Syria are wars by proxy between Sunni (Saudi Arabia) and Shiite (Iran) states. Iran’s going to be a big loser here.

John F’n Traitor is already on TV praising himself for helping bring peace to the Middle East. Apparently, he didn’t bother to tell any of our allies about his trip and they are furious at the U.S. Obama’s plan is working perfectly.

Sounds like workable hypothesis. Unfortunately, it's not falsifiable.

This what it must have been like watching the Soviet-Nazi War, or Iran-Iraq, regretting only that they could not both lose. Still it must suck to be a peace-loving, fairminded person in Syria, caught between the snouts of two raging hyenias.

The size of explosions are always relative to their distance from the reporter.

Grenade 3 doors down is “earth shattering, tremendous detonation”, while truckload of TNT in next town is “an explosion”.

No money to the middle east. Sending arms and money will guarantee that more people get blown up.

The region should be sealed off from the civilized world. All travel in and out should be stopped.
