One of the key tells of an army or fighting forces resolve is the level of brutality visited upon their own forces.
ISIS has burned some of it’sown fighters alive.
“They were grouped together and made to stand in a circle,” a former resident of northern Iraq now living in the U.S. but in touch with family back home told FoxNews.com. “And set on fire to die.”
Several Iraqi-Americans and recent refugees with close relatives in Mosul told of ISIS fighters fresh off defeat in Ramadi being shunned – and executed – for not fighting to the death in Ramadi.
Michael Pregent, a terrorism expert and former intelligence adviser to Gen. David Petraeus in Iraq, said such an act isn’t new for the callous terror group. A similar fate was meted out to fighters who lost Saddam’s hometown to Kurdish forces last year.
“There is no surprise on executing ISIS fighters from Ramadi,” he said. “They did the same to fighters after Tikrit.”
There may be more to the story than we are getting but if ISIS continues down this path of suicidal spectacle, let’s hope more of their fighters do a bad job.
It will save us bullets and casualties… unless President Obama starts arming them again.
