This 60 minute brutal video released by The Islamic State in Iraq (ISIS) shows them proudly slaughtering unarmed civilians and members of the Iraqi army and police while they are off duty.
Brutal drive by shootings, raiding homes at night, and executing teenagers at point blank range are just a few of the things shown. At one point they capture an Iraqi police outpost, line the surrendering officers upand plug hundreds of rounds into all of them.
It’s videos like this that remind me why we fought and continue to fight Islamic extremists. I’m well aware that there are HUGE political and financial reasons why these wars are fought, but that doesn’t mean the pure evil we are fighting against shouldn’t be wiped clean off the face of the planet.
Some of you will say “The US kills civilians too, we are just like them”, but the difference is that we don’t brag about it, we attempt to avoid civilian casualties at all cost, and when it does happen it is a tragedy. Al-qaeda openly showcases their execution and beheading videos as if they are heroes for slaughtering anyone who has a difference in opinion.
True evil does exist in this world, and those who say the insurgents and Taliban are just defending their country have their heads buried way down in the sand.
