Reading is Fundamental

This picture is not doctored. Most Syrians struggle to even read Arabic, much less have a clue about English.
Question: 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 in English. Unfortunately, in this case, they were unaware that the "civilian" insurance company employee hired for the job was a retired US Army sergeant.
I don't know if this is for real or not, but it's funny either way.
