The mood on the streets of Damascus is one of tense defiance. Aspeople try to get on with their lives many say they are not afraid of possible US military strikes.

"They enter any country using the lie of unlimited destructive and chemical weapons in order to occupy us, but this will not affect us. If there is a strike we will be ready for it," said one stall holder in a market in central Damascus.

Another spoke directly to the American people: "We call on the American leaders to listen to the American people, because we are sure they don't want to attack Syria - not a country with a 7,000-year-old civilisation. We call on the Americans to stand up against a military strike."

"Obama won't win approval from the US Congress. Ultimately it will be taken to the United Nations and to the Security Council to resolve," was the opinion of a newspaper seller.
