Weasel Zippers links to a video and story about a group of Syrian rebels who, tongue in cheek, are volunteering to protect Washington D.C. from North Korea.
The Syrian uprising is serious business, but people still have time for some levity now and then. In this video, for instance, a group of Syrians announce the formation of the “Eagles of Washington” brigade, which they say will protect the United States from North Korea. They are armed with crutches and canes — in a dig at the U.S. refusal to provide military aid to the Syrian rebels, they say they will defend the U.S. capital with non-lethal tools.
I don't agree with arming the Syrian rebels for various reasons, but this is still funny.
