The Associated Press reports that the Marine Corp’s recruiting website was hacked ostensibly by a group calling themselves the Syrian Electronic Army. Using those photos of phony soldiers holding up cute little signs as propaganda, the hackers tried to attract the troops to join the Assad government in fighting rebels;
Capt. Eric Flanagan wouldn’t say who was responsible for the hacking, but the site was redirected to a message from the Syrian Electronic Army, a hacker group that’s claimed responsibility for disrupting the New York Times website, Twitter and other media sites the group sees as sympathetic to Syria’s rebels.
The message to the Marine Corps was a plea for Americans to fight alongside the Syrian army and not aid the rebels.
So, yeah, you guys who are making those photos are really helping out the situation. Another soldier made a sign telling the others to quit making signs and get back to work, wearing his name tag and showing his face, and the commenters went nuts;
Moron !!!!! These r one of those brainwashed motherfuckers that would fire on his own ppl…

F*ck you D*ckhead. I served 12 years PROUDLY. If I was serving now and this ass in the Whitehouse was on the verge of starting WWIII for the shit going on in SYRIA, I’d be one of those disgusted by his actions and would REFUSE because it is an UNLAWFUL act.

i hate to say it, but this kid doesn’t understand that his oath was to our constitutional republic, and not just to serve any tyrant who happens to have the big stick at the moment.
Those commenters have probably never served either and the way they cling to their false interpretations of the Constitution, I have to think that they voted for Ron Paul in the last two election primaries. If I had to place a bet, I’d wager they’re some of those Kokesh-huggers in the Oathkeepers.
To lighten the mood a bit, someone sent us this photo of himself to add to the meme;
