Could it be that some people, such as Banksy and others, see the rebels as cartoonish characters created to have a certain undeserved appeal to fools and dupes?
Thinking, of course, of the mainstream media insisting on these persons really being 'freedom fighters'
President Ronald Regan and the media of the day, said the Contras were freedom fighters also? What the Contras were in reality, is the same as what the Syrian 'rebels' are, in reality. Killers! Bought and paid for Killers!
My, how little has changed?
From an early stage, the rebels received financial and military support from the U.S. government, and their military significance decisively depended on it. After U.S. support was banned by Congress, the Reagan administration covertly continued it. These covert activities culminated in the Iran–Contra affair.
I am not a fan of this cartoonish take myself. Though, I get that the rebels often appear as caricatures for a specific stereotype. Even I have taken to roll my eyes at their repeated shrieks of Allahu Akba, realizing it
plays well to specific audiences. Fearful westerners and religiously indoctrinated fanatics.
Cartoons aside these bought and paid for mercs are killing innocent Syrians like there is no tomorrow.
Here is the banksy video
Poor spooky Brown Moses, he "really didn't get it"
In conversation with Mr. Sharro, the British blogger Eliot Higgins, who has played an important role in tracing the flow of arms to Syrian rebels through close analysis of video clips posted on YouTube on his Brown Moses blog, said that the parody reminded him of the work of Chris Morris, the British satirist, “on a really bad day.”
@Brown_Moses I really didnt get it. What's the meaning?
So, I am throwing it to you all. What do you think?
