Video Of Syrian Rebels Taunting U.S. Troops Was A Publicity Stunt

Michael Weiss, Daily Beast: Syrian Rebels Taunt U.S. Troops

Did Turkish-backed jihadis threaten to kill U.S. soldiers in Syria? Or was it a carefully crafted publicity stunt?

“Dogs!” the bearded fighters shouted.

“American agents!”

“No to the Christian coalition!”

“Down with America and all the countries that side with America!”


These were just some of the choice epithets hurled at U.S.-backed Syrian forces—and U.S. advisors among them—as their convoy passed through the border town of al-Rai in Aleppo province earlier this month.

No to the Christian Coalition?!!? Do they seriously believe their own messaging? I suspect they really do.

They have very little understanding of America. There us no "Christian Coalition" in America. There may have been in 1990s. Even then it had very little organization or influence over public policy.

Christians in America today have little organization, considerable disagreements that would make such organization impossible, are generally despised by the powers that be, and most simply want to be left alone to live their lives in peace. As such, any real influence over American policy at any level is a virtual impossibilty.

As has been said, understand your enemy, understand yourself, and you will always prevail. They clearly don't seem to understand their American enemy. I would say, in this regard, we are very fortunate.
