As usual the PSL proceeds with a narrative mixing accepted facts,
questionable information, and Syrian government propaganda. The article
flows seamlessly into the latter:

I'd suspect there isn't a word of truth in this tract which obviously came
directly from the Syrian government (or one of their willing mouthpieces).
For instance, any Syrian rebel found using an Israeli weapon would likely
be shot by his (ex-) comrades. This kind of talk is designed for the gullible.

>Main goal: To install another U.S. puppet regime in Syria

That's their *goal* for about 200 countries. They've been rather
unsuccessful even in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention Libya......

Oh that's real interesting! Could Eli give some examples and numbers? (And
sources for those numbers!)
