Amir sent me this: "I looked at the Syrian youtube snuff movie with horror ( ). It looked odd though. Why would someone want to display this cruelty. Showing the end-result would be enough to scare the potential opponent but this movie shows pure pathological sadism... or it is meant as a cover false-flag. The following remains speculation although if you pay attention at 1min 10 sec and 2 min mark, you might recognize the same actor as the hoax, described by "Moon of Alabama"
Also, the "soldiers" seem to have shaved the heads but have long fundamentalist-looking beards which, at least, would not really be consistent with the regulars in the Syrian army.
You have my full permission and as a matter of fact, I am honored, if you publish this thought.
