The details:

Early this morning in Moscow, a 30-foot flag featuring Barack Obama was raised to the top floor of a building across from the U.S. Embassy. In blood red letters, the word “KILLER” is stamped beneath the face of the president.

The evening before, a laser display projected “Obama Killer #1” onto the U.S. Embassy itself.

The party responsible for such anti-American productions is the Moscow-based “Glavplakat” art society, who issued a statement saying the banner was in response to the “U.S. Government’s plans to invade the territory of yet another sovereign state.”

“The word ‘killer’ defines the 44th U.S. President, and is given to him because of his decision to send the infamous 101st Airborne Division into the Syrian conflict,” states Glavplakat. “Let’s keep in mind that this division carried out practically every U.S. military invasion in the last decade.”

Without harping on "old" war crimes from Vietnam, the 101st served with distinction in Iraq:

Four soldiers from the 1-502nd's 1st Platoon, Bravo Company, would perpetrate one of the worst war crimes known to have been committed by U.S. forces during the Iraq war, or any war for that matter. On March 12, 2006, Specialist Paul Cortez, Specialist James Barker, Private First Class Jesse Spielman and Private First Class Steven Green raped 14-year-old Abeer Qassim Hamzah Rashid al-Janabi and murdered her, her parents and her 6-year-old sister.

And now they're in Syria.

Russians are so rude!
