Irresponsible Gun Owners of the Day: Syrian Soldiers by Robert Farago | Feb 11, 2013 | 26 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Breaking the four rules was never this musical. comments Chas says: February 11, 2013 at 12:09 Play stupid games, win stupid prizes… eventually. Reply Conway Redding says: February 11, 2013 at 12:13 Interesting. Bunch of presumably Islamic soldiers boogying down to definitely non-halal music from the irretrievably morally corrupt West. Suggests to me that the ultimate winner of the culture clash between Islam and the west is likely to be the West. But it may take a while. Meanwhile, keep your powder dry. Reply Pyratemime says: February 11, 2013 at 12:37 Given the number of factions in the Syrian civil war these men could be anything from secularists to sharia fundamentalists. It is of course impossible to tell. Having spent 10 days doing a cultural exchange in Qatar and Kuwait back in January there are parts of the Middle East where even “good” (whatever the hell that means) Muslims enjoy and have embraced aspects of western culture. My point being that the really only fair conclusion that can be drawn from this video is that these guys have horrible firearms discipline and atrocious taste in music. Though I can forgive the music issue since in a warzone it is probably hard to see what is hot on the Billboard Top 40.

Documented that they want a Islamic state created and have a safe haven for Al Qaeda terrorist who back them.

Reply Damon says: February 11, 2013 at 12:32 just makes you wanna dance, right? *boogies down* . . . *crickets chirping…..* ….nevermind. Reply O.E says: February 11, 2013 at 12:34 Surreal. Reply matt says: February 11, 2013 at 12:35 They ended ‘dont ask, dont tell’ in Syria too? Reply Nick says: February 11, 2013 at 12:41 You sir are requested to clean coffee from my monitor! Reply Liberty2Alpha says: February 11, 2013 at 12:45 The one in the helmet that *loved* the camera tripped your ‘dar too? Reply In Memphis says: February 11, 2013 at 12:44 Stupid aside, I found this to be amusing. When they started the chant in the end and shooting it sounded just like the scene in True Lies when they burry the nuke Reply Henry Bowman says: February 11, 2013 at 13:01 I liked it too. War sucks and you gotta blow off steam sometimes. Reply William says: February 11, 2013 at 13:05 This is different from the Vietnam conflict’s “mad minute” in what ways? Soldiers blow it out in various ways, in not always the smartest manner. Even being a soldier is often not the wisest career choice. But they’re having a good time; nothing much of note to see here.

Reply Rob says: February 11, 2013 at 14:02 They can scream and holler all they want about Shariah, but deep down inside they want to eat a Big Mac at McDonald’s while reading “US Weekly” getting fatter by the day just like the us! Reply Ralph says: February 11, 2013 at 14:19 It’s great to see that the Syrian branch of “Up With People” is finally catching on. Reply ketos says: February 11, 2013 at 14:52 Those pansies don’t even have an ounce of the stones of these pros Reply Lance says: February 11, 2013 at 15:23 These Islamist and most Muslim can under stand about shooting into the air what comes up must go down??? I would be most scared by the idiot pointing a RPG-7 at me than the others. Its funny these idiots actually beat the regular Syrian Army in the north. these idiots could pee there pants w/o instructions from the Quron. See what happens when they dance when VX is used on them by the Assad government. Reply DFF says: February 11, 2013 at 15:40 Wow. The flagging by automatic weapons was bad enough, but with the RPG, too? Reply Sixpack70 says: February 11, 2013 at 15:43 This is the direct opposite of the “Safety Dance”. Reply Carrymagnum says: February 11, 2013 at 18:14 Killed it. In a good way Reply tdiinva says: February 11, 2013 at 16:45 What I see is a bunch soldiers having some fun with an Arab twist. If these guys are Alawi’s they are not enamored with Sharia law. Reply duke nukem says: February 11, 2013 at 18:24 usher’s arab back up dancers Reply Matt in FL says: February 11, 2013 at 17:53 That was not irresponsible. That was awesome. You’re just jealous.
