GOOD NEWS FROM MOSUL: “WE WILL FIND YOU AND KILL YOU” – In the recently liberated east Mosul, the only good ISIS are dead ISIS, and they’re getting what they deserve, which is nothing:
The flyblown corpses of Islamic State militants have been rotting along a main street in north Mosul for two weeks, a health risk for passersby. Suicide bombers’ belts beside the fighters can still explode, killing anyone nearby.
But the Iraqi army has no intention of burying the jihadists and hopes as many people as possible will get a good look at their blackened bodies, torn apart by bombs and bullets…
“We will leave the terrorists there,” said Ibrahim Mohamed, a soldier who was standing near three dead jihadists, ignoring the stench.
His cousin suffered death by electrocution at the hands of jihadists during Islamic State’s harsh rule of Mosul because he was a policeman.
“The message is clear to Iraqis, to keep them from joining or supporting Daesh (Islamic State). This will be your fate. The Iraqi army will finish you off,” he said.
The best solution, of course, would be to wrap the bodies in bacon, if it wasn’t such a waste of perfectly good bacon, and if it wasn’t offensive to all Iraqis and not just the jihadi nutjobs.
Labourer Youssef Salim observed the corpses, still with army boots on their feet, and paused to reflect on life under Islamic State, which has lost ground in Iraq and other Arab countries. He said the bodies should not be moved.
“Do you know what smoking one, just one cigarette meant?” he asked. “Twenty-five lashes in a public square where people were forced to watch you suffer.
“If your beard length did not meet their requirements, that was a month in jail and 100 lashes in public.”
ISIS as anti-smoking crusaders? So the Caliphate is really just another nanny state, except that the 200-pound nanny wears a black niqab and chops your head off.
