    Nice Website: Where did Associated Press attain their source of information from?

    Your web page is immaculate, the time tables seem up to its standards of “the event of time in the details of Syria’s historical (portion) events, seems to be in clear detail.”

    Just trying to figure out “is it the history you are just trying to outline with Syria or are you attaining to the political aspects of Syria’s heads of state affairs.”

    It’s informative the only aspect, do you have the “source of information (besides Associate Press and please post source at the end of the sentence.”

    Where you have gathered the intelligence information on Syria.” Which you forgot to mention the source of information (I understand this is not a History nor an English Writing course but for “journalistic purposes, that people might even reference your site for information “you need to detail the ‘source of information’ for your web site “time line on Syria apart by investigating their sources.”

    Here is another topic you can “jot about, Iran and tthe topic which is controversial “President Agmadinejad is in NY September 23, 2007.”
