All In The Translation

Don't know if the following is true but its funny to me.

Read the following explanation before looking at the picture!

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 signsby having the standard "Death To Americans"(etc.) slogans printed in English?Answer: They simply hire an English-speaking civilian! to translate and write theirstatements into English. Unfortunately, in this case, they were unaware that the"civilian" insurance company employee hired for the job was a retired US Armysergeant! Obviously, pictures of this protest rally never made their way through the Arab TVnetworks, but the results were "Priceless."
