    Read the following explanation before looking at the picture!


    The picture is not doctored. It simply shows the result of
    this great scam by a patriotic American. Most Syrians struggle
    to even read Arabic, much less have a clue about English.

    So, how does 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, they were unaware that the "civilian"
    insurance company employee hired for the job was a retired
    US Army sergeant. Obviously, pictures of the protest rally
    never made their way through the Arab TV network, but the
    results were "Priceless." [​IMG]
