BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – The Free Syrian Army (FSA) has shut down a restaurant in Azaz city after the owner showed patrons the Syrian National Team playing Australia in  Asian Cup match.

As reported above, the owner of the unnamed restaurant was later arrested for the showing the match to his patrons.

The Syrian opposition groups have called to boycott the Syrian National Team because they claim the latter represents the government.

Just shows that just because they have the guns and the power because of them they still can’t control peoples minds and their desire to be proud of their country , Syria.

FSA’s “F” is supposed to mean “free”, isn’t it?
Something must be lost in translation.
I really feel that the MENA adopted Orwell’s “Newspeak”

F stands for Fallicious , Faulty and Flawed which instead of having FFFSA and having people think they suffered from a stutter abbreviated it to FSA .

LOL.
They couldn’t ’cause FFF (Fédération Française de Football) and the band FFF (Fédération Française de Funk) would have sued them. 😉
The Newspeak use is common in the MENA :
Republic = dictatorship
Freedom = submission
Religious = psychopathic warriors/terrorists
Peace = death
etc etc

F Stands for FLEA. FSA has already seen the writing on the wall. They are so desperate now with so many losses and with the on set of further onslaught from SAA and it reminds me of the slogan “Clutching at Straws”
