"Sometimes, You Can Only Shake Your Head In Wonder..."

“Most Syrians struggle to even read Arabic, much less have a clue about reading 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!   So, who prints them?

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, the results were PRICELESS!
This picture is not doctored.

Bus fare to Anti-war protest rally- $0.50
Paint and canvas for protest signs- $32.00
Asking a retired U.S. army sergeant to translate your anti-American slogans- Priceless
