One has to wonder how any survivors returning will act. Shades of the Spanish war of the thirties in a bizzare context?

I see a ruined wall and two over-the-top dudes with guns. How do we know they're actually in Syria?

And exposing themselves, shooting at random at 1:18? I suspect they won't live very long if they keep it up.

My buddy and I have watched the video a couple of times...and both of us agree that the AK the chubby guy is shooting is Chinese made. This supposedly being Syria, seeing a ChiCom AK there would be a bit odd.

Still calling BS on this...

I don't believe it. Didn't the one guy say he was Armenian? On whose side would the Armenian be fighting? Christians in general have been supporting Assad given his alliance with Russia and tolerance of the Orthodox.

It says at the beginning of the video that they are fighting alongside the Syrian regime.

They also mention "Silverlake" in the video, close to home being it my hood, but there are not that many gang bangers in Silverlake anymore...

Which of the homies do you think they were talking to?

Although, he did name them all.

There are some names attached to the individuals in the video.

Two men in video say they're from L.A. and 'gangbanging' in Syria - latimes.com
