BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – The U.S. Embassy in Jordan allegedly sent a message to Jordanian businessmen to stop trading with the Syrian government and to cancel all agreements with them, the STEP News Agency reported this week.

According to the report, if these businessmen do not cancel their trade agreements with the Syrian government, they will be blacklisted by the U.S. Embassy in Jordan.

Furthermore, these Jordanian businessmen will be sanctioned by the U.S. as part of their punishment for trading with the Syrian government.

Jordanian businesses have resumed trade and commerce with Syria following the reopening of the Nassib Crossing in southern Daraa last year.

Syria has often relied on Jordan, and vice versa, for imports as both nations have a long history of trade.

Arabs don’t understand themselves too, or they’d lynch all their leaders and would burn mosques too.

Arabs don’t understand Yankees or they’d manage their relations with them efficiently, just like Europeans, Japanese, Israelis, S-Korea and many others do to their own profit.

The problem of Arab culture is the inability to lecture itself. Everytime they screw themselves, they blame it on others, but they will never question their own acts, and so dig their own graves…

And the grounds for this self-destroying attitude are directly linked to religion. They don’t lecture stupid bigotry, they don’t lecture their leaders, they don’t lecture the corruption

You just confirm Suck very well. You are not even allowed, able to or have any ttoool for changes in that region. Jews by birth – at least the men – are learned to question and handling things and do. Others in the region handling things by doing no needed change. And You even have the needed things in Youtubes. Its raising to be non peassive. Its school, its education, its skill and hard work and its having the jobs by that and not after family relations. Even the sometimes kept down female part of the Jewish people has rights… Read more »

Of course they listen. You should be allowed to listen Yourself. You must be more then blind too. They for very good reasons such as their own population dont want to be involved and be as You at all. Jordanian business is not as stupid as You. They are very carefull keeping their country and trade intacts as they can. Your words – if listened to – only can make the same chaos as You have done by no reforms and no possible and very needed Regime changes. They dont see You as any “fellow” and much more the opposit… Read more »

US and Jewish masters are extremely desperate. Russia, Turkey, Iran, Hezbollah, are
thwarting US moves in Syria and the region. US don’t know what to do. They have no say
in the conflict. US won’t fight, but will send Kurdish puppets to do it’s fighting.

You are learned to understand facts. Those Jordanians dont prefare to be like Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and Iraq.

They dont see the Great succes You have and dont prefare You abnormal attititudes to life, death and total material destruction as well as Your kind of rule and court systems.

Putting in Russia and China as if You are commanders of those more then billion people there must be another eaten manipulation by the sheep guard masters of Yours.

Send IRGC back home, cut ties with Hezbollah… Any way, they’re no more useful (if they ever been so is questionable) and the Russian alliance is enough to boot the Turkish proxies out.

Putin would sell it to Erdogan. Erdogan has gold, and for two hundred million dollars in cash, he would buy Syria.

Two conditions that the US is crying for Assad.
1. Assad dies
2. Erdogan ambushes Golan.
How does this happen? Erdogan’s Turks are in fact a yellow race. In the Yellow Race is the future. The white race is at its peak, then it will fall.
