This came to me via email (of course) LOL
Read the following explanation before looking at the picture!
Most Syrians struggle to even read Arabic, much less have a clue about reading 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?
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 to Arab TV networks, but the results were PRICELESS!
This picture is not doctored.
