Should I continue to rant and rave about the Obama administration’s support for the rebels and senior members of Congress calling for weapons shipments?

BEIRUT – A car bomb that rocked the eastern Syrian city of Deir al-Zor on Saturday killed nine people and wounded about 100, the official SANA news agency said.

The report said the bombing was carried out by a suicide bomber and that the dead included guards at a military installation which is near a housing complex.

An opposition group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said the blast was near military intelligence offices and was followed by heavy gunfire.

The group said the bomb went off on a street where a military hospital and air force intelligence offices are also located.
