FIRST POST – MAY 4, 2013 – SYRPER AWARDS COLONEL RIAD AL-AS’AD THE "LONG JOHN SILVER PEGLEG MEDAL" FOR OUTSTANDING SERVICE TO ONE-LEGGED RODENTS

SYRIAN PERSPECTIVE AWARDS THE COVETED “LONG JOHN SILVER AWARD” TO FORMER SYRIAN AIR FORCE COLONEL RIAD AL-AS’AD, FOR HIS CONTRIBUTION TO THE POPULATION OF ONE-LEGGED VILLAINS IN THE WORLD.


Many of our readers probably did not know that such an award existed.  But the great Scottish author, Robert Lewis Stevenson, who wrote the immortal adventure classic, “Treasure Island”, unwittingly brought into sharp focus the need to recognize people with only one whole leg while another rested solidly, from the knee down, on a wooden peg.  Although television shows and movies such as the “Fugitive” extolled the virtues of the “one-armed man”, very few ever broached the subject of the “one-legged man”.  SyrPer, always in the vanguard of revolutionary thinking, has altered the calculus in this very important domain of human endeavor.
It was a crisp late night on March 25, 2013 when Col. Al-As’ad and destiny would meet.  He had decided to drive to the city of Al-Mayaadeen in Dayr El-Zor Governorate where he thought his courageous army of rats were in total control  And they might have been – which is why many believe it was the FSA or Jabhat Al-Nusra who did him in.

On that night, in total darkness, the Colonel slipped into his chauffeured van and was greeted by a big “BOOM!”.  But this was not a boom designed to kill him – only to maim him.  And it did!  It blew his bloomin’ right leg off from just above the knee down to his tippy-toes.  Hence, the Long John Silver Award for 2013.

“I want to die”, the Colonel screamed out to his rescuers.  Instead he was delivered to Sanliurfa in Turkey for treatment.  Tee hee hee.  The Turkish doctors there, who still practice medicine according to principles established during the American Civil War,  perfunctorily amputated his right leg and proclaimed another Turkish medical success.
The Colonel has received a lot of fan mail from fellow “peg-leggers” around the world including some very comely females who also share the same defect.  Seen below is Lurleen Snotgrass of Fort Lauderdale who has offered to marry him.  She refers to herself as a “lefty” while referring to her favorite Syrian terrorist as a “righty”.  “I’ll be his second wife. Okay? I mean, I really think he’s so attractive with that leg blown off.” 

Colonel Al-As’ad is now waiting for this new prosthesis which was manufactured for him in Freiburg, Germany.  Chancellor, Angela Merkel, personally autographed the artificial leg with the note: “Mein Leibchen, Kolonel Riad, Mit vielen Grussen von deiner Weibstuck, Angela.”

And so, it is with much pride that the Board of Governors of Syrian Perspective bestow upon former Colonel Riad Al-As’ad, founder of the Fake Syrian Army, the Long John Silver Peg-leg Award for 2013.  Along with a lifetime supply of Dr. Scholl’s Patented Heel Lifts and Left-Foot Talcum Powder, he will also receive his own copy of the movie, “Treasure Island” starring Robert Newton in his immortal performance as the lovable, one-legged pirate.  Good going, Colonel!
 

And please enjoy this article from Bestgore about the great Colonel.

injuries like this happen in every war on both sides and also in daily life and some are even born 1 legged i dont see the benefit of this.

i rather have information and news about the progress of the war on terrorism instead of pictures that make me feel sorry for people who made the wrong choice.

I agree with the above commentatator, Ziad. It’s clear you are very angry with what the west has done to Syria (most civilized people are) but don’t let your anger get the best of you and please try to be a little less offensive at times. There are a lot of people who are now reading your blog and are spreading the word.

Screw that, keep it coming YaZiad. You could do a lot worse. I enjoy the awards. However there is news about an alleged massacre in Banias and Israeli air strikes. That does need a Syrian Perspective if I may say so. A comment from an insider?

Ziad and Souri,

Great work as usual. But I’m so worried on an alleged Israel’s recent attack in Syria. What really happened to Syrian air defence systems? This is a second time!!

I pray for your country every day.

Word is, Ziad, the alleged Isreali air strike outside of Damascus was a planted false story to bolster support within the ranks of the foreign Jihadi coyote mercenary gangsters? Any word on this latest? Also, thanks for following up on the SAA interdicting weapons and munitions being channeled to Mr. Cayote & Co. who mass produce their own incompetence and provide us with a lot of bloody entertainment via video snuff films. As to hurting anyone’s sentimentalities concerning your method of reporting keep it full of lively sarcasm with cutting edge commentary. This is a cyber war as well as… Read more »

I would like to also register a complaint along with my fellow Jewish comment writers, and friends, Anonymous May 4, 2013 at 8:01 AM & Anonymous May 4, 2013 at 9:13 AM. We, the Jewish elite at http://notthetalk.com/discussion/list/10716?start=0 and think that the depiction of our allies in this manner is unbecoming and rude. Yes, we know they are only hired goys, but they are our hired goys. It would be different if you ridiculed wounded Syrian army soldiers, or a nasty Jew-hating Venezuelan Maduro supporter injured in one of our riots, they deserve the the worst for their unfriendly views… Read more »

BTW, this is CaroleBristol again, if you want to learn the proper respectful way to discuss our wounded hirelings, you should visit Bernhard Horstmann at his blog Moon of Alabama. It was a link there to here that alerted me and the two Anonymouses that this blog exists. Bernhard is a fellow NotTheTalk visitor, although an infrequent one as his own blog takes up a lot of his time. Look over Moon of Alabama carefully and you will see that critical blogs can be done without mentioning Jewish people or making fun of our allies who have fallen.

All the best

I am pretty sure we detest Zionists, not Jews. Take your crocodile tears elsewhere. Why would we ridicule one of our own wounded soldiers? They deserve the worst? How about you proofread what you are trying to convey before posting. Moreover, I enjoy the subjective writing; it is a breath of fresh air. I am sick of people, especially the Israeli Lobby in the United States, for constantly chastising anyone who does not support them. Why don’t you take your savings and give it to the displaced Palestinians that you forced out of their homes. Why don’t you get rid… Read more »
