More than 60,000 people have died in Syria’s civil war, with more being killed on a seemingly daily basis. The United Nations has even gone so far as to say that the estimated death toll currently being reported is understating the carnage.
The general awfulness of how things are down there makes one recently uploaded video all the more bizarre. In this new clip that just began makes its way around the web, purported Syrian soldiers decked out in camouflage can be seen dancing to “Yeah!” by Usher. Once they finish their little rendition of the R&B classic, they shoot guns in the air and celebrate.
Again, it’s extremely weird.
As noted by the New York Daily News, the video “appeared to be authentic and the uniforms consistent with those worn by Syrian soldiers.”
Make of this what you will.
