    Come on now... is that a joke question? Even if it WAS sanctioned by the Syrian government do you think Assad or his toadies would come out and ADMIT it? Laughable.

    Agreed, three wars still going on, one that's not even hostile <snickers>, but I guess that means it's open season on U.S. Embassies since we're "a little tired of war."

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No, not an act of war.

    If I throw a brick through the window of the Chinese embassy, has the US just committed an act of war against China?

    That would pale in comparison to what the Chinese did to several U.S. consulates in China in May 1999.

    You didn't answer the question.

    A single brick, no. Trashing the embassy/consulate -- definately violation of the Vienna Convention, but perhaps falls short of act of war; government sanctioned invasion of embassy/consulate = act of war.

    What is the line between the brick and the "trashing?" How much damage can be inflicted before it's a violation of the Vienna Convention, when there's no government sanction?
