Machine gun in right hand. Cell phone in left. Mr. Sheikha, who defected from the Syrian Army about six weeks ago. On duty on the gun-truck’s machine gun, at 80 miles an hour into Aleppo, checking messages along the way.

So I'm not the only one who noticed the poor trigger discipline. Must make for exciting times bouncing along in a truck at 80 mph. Luckily, he has his phone in the other hand to call for roadside assistance.

In this guy's case I'd advocate for inverting Cooper's rules and calling them "Yusuf Salah ad-Din's Rules for earning first-class boarding passes for Flight 72 on Pederast Airlines".

They'd go something like this:

1) All guns are probably not loaded. Even if they are, treat them as if they aren't.

2) Always let the muzzle thingy flail around at anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is loaded, see Rule 1.)

3) Keep your finger on the trigger till your sights are on the infidel crusader, then jerk out a 20 round burst while yelling some version of "Takbīr!". This is Osama's Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 40 percent of premature discharges in paradise.

4) Mis-identify your infidel target, and disregard what is behind it. Indiscriminately shoot at anything that you can see.

Saladin's Rules + Allah's will = Winning.
