U.S. Urges Citizens to Leave Syria 'Immediately'

If you are an American citizen and you are still in Syria after all the shit that has been going on there, you are truly an Idiot!

The United States urged U.S. citizens Friday to depart Syria "immediately," and noted that the Damascus government has placed "severe" constraints on the travel of U.S. diplomats in the country.

The travel warning, an update to an April 25 order for US embassy staff's family members and some non-emergency personnel to leave Syria, expressed growing concern over the violent crackdown by President Bashar al Assad's security forces against pro-democracy protesters.

Last month, pro-government demonstrators attacked the U.S. and French embassies in Damascus, smashing windows and spray-painting walls after the two Western envoys visited the flashpoint protest city of Hama.

"The U.S. Department of State urges U.S. citizens in Syria to depart immediately while commercial transportation is available," the latest travel warning said.
