Armed militants try to storm U.S. Embassy in Syria

Is it just me or do Islamic militants seem to get dellusions of grandeur every once in a while?

Armed Islamic militants attempted to storm the U.S. Embassy in a bold attack Tuesday using automatic rifles, hand grenades and at least one van rigged with explosives, the government said. Syrian security forces killed three of the attackers and no Americans were hurt.

It's funny when their plans backfire isn't it. I mean, I know deep down that to derive pleasure from other people's deaths, no matter how honestly deserving it may be, is wrong on a moral level but, man, those Islamic militants sure make cheering for the home team easy. Every time one of them blows themselves up prematurely and accomplishes nothing more than pissing off a janitor it's like I'm watching A Shot in the Dark for the first time again.

After the attack, pools of blood lay splattered on the sidewalk outside the embassy, along with a burned car apparently used by the attackers. A sports utility vehicle with U.S. diplomatic tags had a bullet hole through its front window, and the glass windows of nearby guard houses also were shattered.

Soon some militant leader is going to claim those windows were anti-Islam and were the prime target of the attack. Victory!
