Syrian army should be your ally not your enemy," the letter read.
"Refuse your orders and concentrate on the real reason every soldier
joins their military, to defend their homeland. You're more than welcome

Syrian Electronic Army Attacks Marine Website With Message: ‘Think About Obama’s Alliance With Al Qaeda’ The Blaze, September 3, 2013
WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — A Marine
Corps spokesman confirmed the Marines’ recruiting website was tampered
with and redirected temporarily Monday but said no information was
compromised in the attack.
The Syrian Electronic Army is supposedly responsible for this attack, adding it to its list of other high-profile defacements.
Capt. Eric Flanagan wouldn’t say who
was responsible for the hacking, but the site was redirected to a
message from the Syrian Electronic Army, a hacker group that has also
claimed responsibility for disrupting the New York Times website, Twitter and other media sites the group sees as sympathetic to Syria’s rebels.
The message to the Marine Corps was a plea for Americans to fight alongside the Syrian army and not aide the rebels.
The website then went on to post the
images supposed U.S. military members holding up signs voicing their
opposition to a possible strike in Syria. TheBlaze has a poll asking if these images are “treason” or “free speech.”
The Marines’ website is now operating normally.
IBTimes is reporting:
he Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) has been highly active over the last
six months targeting media outlets it believes are reporting untruths
about what is happening in Syria. The group, which supports President
Bashar al-Assad, last week claimed responsibility for attacks on the New York Times and Twitter - as a result of the group's official Twitter account being suspended.
However the group turned its attention to the US Marines, who
could potentially be drawn into the civil war in Syria, though President
Barack Obama on Sunday was branded as "hesitant and confused" by the Assad regime over his plans to wait for Congressional approval before launching any air strikes against regime targets.
The SEA defaced the marines.com website
early on Monday morning but at the time of publication the website had
returned to normal. As well as posting a lengthy message to its
"brothers" in the US Marine Corps, the SEA posted a series of pictures
purporting to show soldiers in uniform holding up written messages
protesting Us involvement in Syria.
Unlike messages posted on the websites and Twitter
accounts of media outlets it has targeted, the SEA's message to US
marines called on them to view Assad's forces as brothers-in-arms,
claiming a strike against the regime's targets would aid al-Qaida's
efforts in the region.
The full text of the message reads as follows:
"This is a message written by your brothers in the Syrian Army,
who have been fighting al-Qaida for the last 3 years. We understand your
patriotism and love for your country so please understand our love for
ours. Obama is a traitor who wants to put your lives in danger to rescue
al- Qaida insurgents.
Marines, please take a look at what your comrades think about
Obama's alliance with al-Qaida against Syria. Your officer in charge
probably has no qualms about sending you to die against soldiers just
like you, fighting a vile common enemy. The Syrian army should be your
ally not your enemy.
Refuse your orders and concentrate on the real reason every
soldier joins their military, to defend their homeland. You're more
than welcome to fight alongside our army rather than against it.
Your brothers, the Syrian army soldiers. A message delivered by the SEA"
In an email interview with the BBC,
an SEA spokesman warned media outlets reporting on the conflict in
Syria to "expect us" and that the group had "many surprises" planned.
He added: "Military intervention in Syria has many consequences and
will affect the whole world. Our main mission is to spread truth about
Syria and what is really happening."
