Obama Freezes Assets of Syrian Government; Prevents Purchase of Syrian Oil

By executive order, President Obama has frozen all assets of the Syrian government that are in the United States. Developing....


Executive Order 13338 was issued on the declaration that "the actions of the Syrian government are a threat to the national security, financial policy and economy of the United States."

In addition, to the freezing of assets of the Syrian government and certain individuals, the order prevents Americans from making new investments in Syria and the importation directly, or indirectly, of oil from Syria.


  1. Assad "What were you expecting us to do? We're a police state, we torture and kill people, even people you pick up and send to us".

  2. Dear Leader has spoken. We must obey.

  3. I'm sure that's gonna help oil prices. I wonder if Commander Bozo is going to do another strategic oil release...

    I'm betting we are gonna see price controls as part of the Bozo's new economic "plan" next month.

    Any takers on that action?

  4. How is impoverishing the people of Syria via asset seizure and trade sanctions going to help them or generate peace and goodwill? I suppose this will translate, at some point, into more troops on the ground in yet another county. This is stupid and insane.

  5. @Anonymous 10:58,

    Yes, but think about all that influence over oil! Bwahahahahahaha!

    On a more serious note (not that I actually wasn't above), I can't help but wonder how long it is before someone, a group of someones, else gets fed up with our ever increasing presence in that region and pops a cork on the U.S. on U.S. soil again.

    It has to be like a powder keg over there....
