The President of Turkmenistan's Anti-ISIS Propaganda Video Is Straight Out Of A 1980s Action Movie

I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or be impressed when I watched this anti-ISIS propaganda video made by the President of Turkmenistan.

Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, the President of Turkmenistan, channeled his inner 1980s action hero when he made this video ostensibly filmed to show off the military strength of his country to ISIS. In reality, it looks like the movie was made more to show off his macho side than anything else. 

Even though they seemed to be trying to demonstrate the strength of the President of Turkmenistan, this video may have done the opposite instead. Watch and see what I mean.

I wonder how Arnold Schwarzenegger feels about the President of Turkmenistan portraying his biceps in the movie “Commando” as his own in this video?

Anyone else notice that he was shooting a .22 caliber pistol?

Honestly, I doubt the video impressed ISIS that much. However, due to the pressure being put on them in Iraq and Syria, the terrorist group has a lot of other things on their plate right now that they’re probably much more worried about.
