Syrian TV Says Barcelona FC Formations Are Coded Messages To Rebels

by | 19th, March 2012

DID you know that Barcelona FC are delivering coded messages to Syrian rebel arms smugglers? If Lionel Messi beats two men , chips the keeper then swan dives into an ornamental pond, we invade Iran at noon.

In a segment aired last December, Al Dunya TV showed a clip from an El Clasico game between Barca and Real Madrid to illustrate their point…

The narrator claimed that Barca’s formation was clearly depicting arms smuggling routes to Syrian rebels with the players representing the smugglers and the ball’s position representing the current location of the weapons. Apparently, according to the narrator, when Lionel Messi passes the ball, it indicates that the weapons have successfully reached the rebels in Dir al-Zur.

The rebels don’t cheer because they are all Spurs fans. Fact.
