White Helmets Mannequin Challenge

The White Helmets program was put together in Turkey by James Le Mesurier, a former British army officer & military contractor. They are funded primarily by the US State Department through the USAID program & by the UK Foreign Office. The stated function of the White Helmets is rescue work but they also post a lot of pics & videos on social media, always with an anti-Assad message & often with high quality camera equipment.

 

CNN describes this video as an attempt to use the "mannequin challenge" meme that was popular at the time it was released to help the video go viral. (link)

 

John Pilger has described the White Helmets as a "terrorist affiliated group", "phony NATO shadow state construct, masquerading as a Humanitarian NGO". (link)

you may think what you want from those guys... and their presumably shady agenda... (lovely disinformation war...

but do you believe all those bombs, dropped by the assad/russian regime, didnt kill anyone? Or what is your intention posting this over 2 year old video?

 

just asking because of your retarded "holocaust didnt happen" mentality :)

 LOL that's not why you were asking. If you're so concerned for those people you should go over there and help fight the Assad regime. If it's going to be done right you might as well do it yourself right?

I'm not debating subroutine. Subroutine is implying that because Assad dropped some bombs on some people my family needs to die over there, or over here - that it's somehow my family's problem. He's implying that because Assad dropped some bombs on some people, America needs to drop even MORE bombs on some people and start a war with Russia. I don't debate assfuck retards like that. I just poke at them.

You're taking this far too personally.  You have absolutely no say in what happens and neither do I nor does Subroutine.

You keep saying that even though it's not true. In 2013 Obama was ramping up a full-scale run into Syria and was checked by massive negative feedback from people like you and me and a smooth check move by Russia.
