Guevara the Sniper

Generally, you don’t want to publicize your snipers. Good ones are national treasures, fomenting chaos in enemies ranks. For example, SEAL Chris Kyle used to be called Al-Shaitan Ramad (The Devil of Ramadi) for his lethality. Another fact military folks should keep close to their vest (if they wear them) is the wives of their leaders. It opens the families up to all sorts of potentially dangerous exploitation when it becomes known who the head honcho’s wife is. This captioned picture breaks all those rules:

Guevara, a Syrian Palestinian woman married to an Al Wa'ad battalion commander, is pictured in Aleppo January 19, 2013. Guevara was the director of a secondary school before the revolution and is now one of the main snipers of the battalion on the front line in Aleppo.

Love the Che-ness of her name. Like a guerilla, she is. More of her here. . .
