A YouTuber mashed up a bunch of propaganda from the Syrian Civil War, and made an effective Mad Max: Levant teaser trailer.
The Syrian Civil War has been a mess straight from the start. As soon as moderate extremist groups started entering the conflict, the lines between good and bad quickly became blurred. From the outside looking in, one could easily see how this conflict has turned into a direct excerpt from a Mad Max film.
The majority of the above mashup is short clips from Daesh propaganda pieces. If you pay close attention throughout the video, you’ll notice the flag changes from time to time. The other groups represented in this video are Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic Front.
Jabhat, is in short, just an extension of Al-Qaeda, and the Islamic Front is an organization made up of many smaller jihadi groups also wishing to form a Caliphate. They work with the FSA when it’s convenient, in order to gain ground from the Assad Regime, but for the most part they’ve been letting the FSA take the brunt of the fighting.
It’s no wonder that the entire civil war looks like something out of a Mad Max movie. Three of the major players in the conflict are nothing more than bands of psychopaths fighting the entire world.
