Oh, Lordy, Those Crazy Syrians…..

Had enough of the Zimmerman trial and verdict?  Well, too bad, because there’s more!  While we in the United States have been absorbed in this stupid show-trial, the rest of the world has been lapping up the Skittles right along with us.  According to The Daily Beast, the Syrian rebels are all about some Trayvon Martin support.

It seems the rebellious villagers of Kafr Anbel, Syria have posted signs expressing their support for Trayvon fans.  From the Daily Beast post:

“Martin family!,” reads a sign drawn up by the rebels in the Syrian town of Kafr Anbel, part of the Syrian city of Idlib. “The Syrians are the best who know what it’s like to lose loved ones by immune criminals.”

So, yeah.  That’s how those wacky Syrians roll, y’all.

This whole Zimmerman thing is a big ol’ squirrel dancing for our attention, while there are other trials in progress right now whose outcome will be far more relevant to all of us.  Since we are on the subject, I thought I’d give y’all some pics to remind you of the other legal proceedings that need our focus:

Remember this guy?  Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter.

How about this one:

Here’s another defendant to remember:

Bradley Manning, Wikileaker extraordinaire

We have to demand better of our media, y’all.  The suits in their corporate offices need to hear from all of us more even than our elected representatives.  If the mainstream media had been doing it’s job of keeping us informed of the IMPORTANT stuff, we wouldn’t be in the mess that we are in, today.
