The day after I posted my blog, "What's Really Going On In Syria?", the Los Angeles Times has managed to provide another seemingly fanciful answer.

According to their article, "Syria rebels seek weapons, money on Turkish border":

Along the Syria-Turkey border, the bomb maker was displaying his homemade mortar launcher, crafted from a tube and bits of metal. "Whatever we need to produce, we Google it," said the factory worker turned rebel commander and arms procurer in a border village where goats and insurgents walk along steep mountain paths.

If this all weren't so tragic, preposterous news reports like this would be LMAO material. But, alas, since Western intelligence (an oxymoron if there ever was one) consistently falls for this nonsense, it's more like CMAO ("C" for cry).

So there you have it folks, the media have gotten to the bottom of the mystery of how the Syrian opposition has emerged and become magically so well-armed as to take on the historically brutal 300,000-man Syrian Armed Forces. Per the Global Post reports noted in yesterday's blog, around 40 percent of the Free Syrian Army's military equipment is purchased directly from the Syrian Army, about half their arms are looted from Syrian forces in combat and the remaining ten percent is brought in across the border from Islamic militants that use Google from their mud huts in border villages to search out designs for weapons manufacturing.

Now there's this bridge in Brooklyn I've been meaning to sell...
