The Guitar Playing Soldier Picture

This picture is becoming a web sensation, the image shows a National Transitional Council (NTC) fighter/soldier playing his guitar in the middle of a war zone in Libya, the new regime forces of Libya were battling block by block towards the centre of Sirte trying to finally capturing Moamer Kadhafi’s hometown after a month-long siege.

The Guitar playing Fighter/Soldier

The photo shows a fighter of the new regime in Libya (NTC) playing his guitar as the forces were battling on the streets moving block by block, the image almost looks surreal and as if it was a set up but this was captured in the middle of a fierce battle, the Guitar playing fighter may be getting shelter behind the wall yet that wall is covered in bullet holes, the floor is littered in bullet shells so you can get an idea of how ferociously the fighters have been battling, the other fighters in the photo are all rightly holding weapons and are poised for action, this is a very dangerous place to be having a little sing song,

Perhaps his singing was that bad that a guitar and a sing-a-long was the best weapon he could take?

Will we probably see him on a talent show in the near future?

What do you think he was singing?
