Default No More Syrians?

Any of you guys thinking about getting a Syrian might want to order it right away because your chance to buy them may vanish soon. In case you hadn't heard Bush and Olmert want to freeze Syrian assets (which by the way is an act of war) and force a stand off with the Russians over a naval blockage to show how pissed they are at the Syrians. Needless to say when either one of those things happen you'll see the end of Syrian narghiles on the American market. The story is all over European TV news and they are taking very grimly ( no idea about UK TV) but the American media seems to be ignoring it. Here is the original source of the story in Arabic : http://www.manar.com/atemplate.php?id=477 and a quick mention about it in English: http://www.roadstoiraq.com/2008/01/1...-syrian-coast/

How long can that possibly last? Holy crap. Are Syrians on the US market even actually built in Syria?

Apparently, Putin is seriously pissed and making bellicose statements about having the various Russian naval assets in the med challenge any blockade attempt so this could get ugly. As the narghiles if they are from a reputable vendor they are the real thing. Again, since this might get nasty fast so your chances of buying a Syrian rig may vanish soon.

...no. Me and Water have close ties. Ever since he did business with me we have always kept in touch. Everytime I get a new batch of Syrians, I always send him pictures of everything. He is always excited to see what new Syrians I got in...almost more than me!

The reason the site doesn't get updated sometimes is because I move stock so quickly....that there is no point to put quantity on the site. I dont want to put a certain quantity and I not have it in stock and then discourage customers. If you want to see any of my new Syrians when they come in, and this goes for anyone, just email me...and you'll be added to the prestigious list. Lol.

Thanks!

I guess that means I'd better stock up on some syrians. That will hold me off until the demand for bohemians goes up and then I will get a Lebanese Blue Cedar from JandR

It looks like the naval blockade idea fizzled when the Russians got particularly strident in their opposition to the plan. However, Bush just froze Syrian overseas assets which is an act of war. I'd say that if want a Syrian rig you better act soon. http://rawstory.com/news/afp/Bush_wi..._02132008.html

I don't know how many Syrians are already imported or how many more on the way but given recent developments i'd say it seems reasonable to expect that getting them might be pretty difficult a month or so from now. Of course it could be possible to import them via a third country so.....

After talking with the cat at H-S.com yesterday it sounded as though they are still anticipating their delivery, but that they have been getting held up in customs. But it did sounds as though they left the country of origin.
