ISIS paraded 17 orange clad Peshmerga fighters in cages through crowds of jeering mutants in Northern Iraq, this week, promising to burn them alive.
Or as President Selfie might say, some violent, vicious zealots [who are distorting a great religion] randomly paraded a bunch of folks in cages.
Via Daily Mail:
Heads bowed in terror the orange-clad Kurdish fighters are paraded through streets filled with jeering militants in the latest horrifying video release from Islamic State.
In a grim echo of the terrible fate which befell Jordanian pilot Lieutenant Muath al-Kaseasbeh the captives, reportedly Peshmerga fighters, are dressed in orange jumpsuits and shackled in cages.
Just as Lt. al-Kaseasbeh was burned alive on camera, IS are planning to do the same with their latest prisoners, according to posts on social media.
The grim procession apparently took place through Kirkuk in northwest Iraq, an oil rich Kurdish stronghold where ISIS now has a presence after mounting repeated attacks in recent weeks.
The parade, reportedly through the Hawija district in the southwest of Kirkuk, could be seen as revenge for horrific reports of Kurdish forces dragging the bodies of ISIS fighters through the streets of the city in the Kurdistan region of Iraq earlier this month.
I wish we could dare hope that the United States military would come to their rescue. Or assist the Kurds in coming to their rescue. But with President Selfie at the helm, still insisting that we are living through a time of “substantially improved tranquility of the global community,” there’s a pretty decent chance that he’ll be too busy golfing, fund-raising, vacationing, campaigning, or taking more selfies, to do anything about it.
So again – we need to brace ourselves for more horrors, while the emperor fiddles.
