Protesting - Syrian Style

I received the following in an email from a friend. Now, let's be honest, this may very well just be a photoshop joke. Or, it could be real. But, either way, it's funny as hell.


This picture is not doctored. Most Syrians struggle to even read Arabic, much less have a clue about English.

So, how do a group of Syrian protest leaders create the most impact with their signs by having the standard "Death To Americans"(etc.) slogans printed in English?

Answer: They simply hire an English-speaking civilian to translate and write their statements into English. Unfortunately, in this case, they were unaware that the "civilian" insurance company employee hired for the job was a retired US Army sergeant!

Obviously, pictures of this protest rally never made their way through the Arab TV networks, but the results were "Priceless"!


Bus fare to anti-U.S. Rally - $0.50
Paint and canvas protest signs - $32.00
Asking a retired U.S. Sergeant to translate your anti American Slogans - PRICELESS

I ran it too, last year some time. I'm not taking mine down. They can pull it from my cold dead hands.
