If you’ve ever found yourself wondering why the civil war in Syria is taking as long as it is, this video is your answer. A single rebel fighter is shot in the face, and killed, by a sniper somewhere down the road. For the next 3 minutes, the unit is absolutely crippled and ineffective as they try to recover his body and evacuate him.
The lack of logistical support, training, and will to actually get into the fight are exactly what is causing the conflict in Syria to rage on for so long. At the current rate, we may be seeing combat footage coming out of the area for the next decade.
