U.N. pulls all monitors out of Syrian town because of security concerns

The United Nations has pulled all of its 24 monitors out of the Syrian city of Aleppo because of  the "deteriorating security situation," a spokeswoman for the mission there told CNN.

Juliette Touma said all of those people part of the U.N. mission in Syria have been moved back to Damascus amid growing violence.

"This is a temporary move back to Damascus and we still hope to return the team when the security situation allows," Touma said.

    Its not, just that you don't care about the
    people of Syria... but, you have it in for them.

    You all come on these boards and like everything
    is all about the three Bimbettes. No one comes
    here to read about you, OR be entertained.

    Take a sTROLL, elsewhere!

    I'm beginning to think you're ANTI-Everybody
    but banasy. Who are you, Donna, and what,
    exactly, is your passion? I've been here months
    and, outside a little catchy phrase about everyone
    being pervs at Penn State; haven't seen any passion
    OR compassion in anything you write.

    Sorry, but, that's how I see it.

    With Press TV reporting that the hired foreign invaders now have chemical weapons it appears the next step is to commit a false-flag chemical attack against Syrian civilians to be blamed on Assad to justify a full invasion of Syria as the next step to the long-sought war on Iran. Obviously the observers must be removed lest they observe something they ought not to!

      Accurate observation, Mike. Libyan chemical weapons have been in the hands of the NATO al-Qaeda terrorists in the Transitional National Council and these have been sent along with the terrorists who are invading Syria with NATO help. War crimes abound in the madness of Western neo-colonialism of the NWO
