Almost the Ultimate Carter Moment in Damascus.

Here is a free hint to all appointed members of the Obama administration: if Syrian ‘loyalists’ follow up today’s attack against the US Embassy in Damascus…

Protesters loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad briefly broke into the US embassy in Damascus on Monday and security guards used live ammunition to prevent them storming the French embassy, diplomats said.

…by actually seizing the embassy?  If that happens, start updating your resumes.  And don’t bother with sending them along to Democratic House Members (and any Democratic Senator up for re-election in 2012): we’ll be throwing them out of office, too.

Fair warning.

PS: I’d like to know what the rules of engagement are for our embassy guards in Damascus, too.
