Amman - Rebels attacked the main police headquarters in Damascus on Thursday, a witness said, a day after the assassination of three of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's top lieutenants.

"Gunfire has been intense for the past hour.

It is now dying down but the streets around the police command remain empty," a resident of Qanawat, an old central district where the Damascus Province Police Headquarters is located, told Reuters by phone.

      Assad has not even got the guts to speak to the people. He must be very scared.

    We are nearing the end of it all. Almost 17000 thousand lives lost. Greedy of mankind. Not wanting to share the future.

      More like only the beginning...many more lives to be lost. This is not your average Libya pushover. Of that you should be assured.

    If they can attack the Damasacus police headquaters, they can get to the Presidential Palace, but by than the COWARD has left. These DICTATORS are all the same; As soon as the population loses its fear for their tyrant, these DICTATORS/THUGS show what they really are : WEAK AS P.SS !!

      AnthonyfromAfrica: Been reading your posts for the past few months, you are like a baby who has lost it's dummy. Always shouting and screaming with so sustenance or meaning. They say the problem with the world is that the dumb are confident and the intelligent reserved. This is evident with your posts (in case you think it is a compliment, i mean the former part)

      There is a stiff competition here, between this patrick and Keith, of who can make the most absurd comment. If it comes to silly childish wishful thinking, this patrick is ahead !! If it comes to prove we got our own terrorist on this site, Keith is way ahead.
