With so much of the world’s attention in recent weeks being on Iran, ISIS must be feeling a little neglected — because they appear to be acting out even more than usual.
“Hey, we’re an existential threat too,” they seem to be saying as they post pictures of themselves playing soccer with human heads.”
“Hey, we may not have nukes – yet – but we can make pretty nifty cartoons of your president being decapitated.”
“Make no mistake – we’re the meanest kids on the block.”
The Islamic State is demanding a $30 million ransom to release hundreds of Christian hostages. Fox News reports ISIS jihadists are demanding $100,000 for each hostage. “They know we cannot come up with this kind of money so they’re hoping other groups and countries will come up with the money,” Fox quoted an unnamed Assyrian leader. The jihadi army captured 250-300 civilians in attacks on 35 Assyrian villages in the Hasaka province on February 23. Islamic State fighters killed nine Assyrians attempting to defend their homes. So far the Islamist group released 23 hostages who were told to leave the country rather than return to their homes.
No joke – they really are the meanest and most demented kids on the block. They remind me of the evil inbred freaks in the Texas Chainsaw massacre. Only those freaks actually retained an ounce of humanity. They need to be stopped cold by a military willing to unleash overwhelming force on them.
Sadly – that won’t be happening as long as the current pResident is in office.
