Skip to comments.'This is our football, it's made of skin #World Cup': sickening beheading in Iraq
Posted on 06/13/2014 11:41:33 AM PDT by Eurotwit
Blood-thirsty jihadists are carrying out summary executions on civilians, Iraqi soldiers and police officers - including 17 in one street alone - on their warpath to Baghdad, the UN said today. As a shocking picture of the ISIS insurgency continues to develop, the Islamist group are posting barbaric videos online with the intent of showing the world they will stop at nothing to achieve their end game. In one, which is too graphic to publish, fighters are seen knocking on the door of a Sunni police major in the dead of night. When he answers, they blindfold and cuff him. Then they carve off his head with a knife in his own bedroom as sweetly lilting religious hymns are played over the top. An image of the officer's decapitated head was tweeted with the sickening message: 'This is our ball. It is made of skin #WorldCup'. ISIS also claims to have executed 1,700 Shia soldiers on their push for the capital. Although this figure has not been verified, the UN today warned that hundreds of people are likely to have been killed by the fanatics since the uprising. This evening, President Barack Obama ruled out sending troops back into combat in Iraq but promised to review military options - including air strikes. ...
ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani called on his fighters to stay focused on the task ahead, warning them: 'Do not let your egos fall prey to your recent military gains such as Humvees, helicopters, rifles and military equipment.'
... In a video released last night, masked ISIS fighters waved the black flag of the Islamic State and flashed the 'V' sign while some shouted 'towards Baghdad!' as they paraded in stolen Humvees.

'This is our football, it's made of skin #World Cup': After posting sickening beheading video of Iraqi policeman, ISIS boast of slaughtering 1,700 soldiers
These filthy pigs need to be taught a lesson.
Unfortunately, there does not exist a first world leader with the stones to do what needs to be done.
Hope and Change
Oh no! The terrorists are using the hashtag! There is no stopping them now! /sarc
Frankly if the majority Shiites in Bagdad aren’t going to get off their collective asses, and pick up the arms that we left behind for them, and stop this group, then there is nothing we can do for them and they all deserve to lose their heads.
Too bad we don’t have a President -or- Congress -or- an American will to do what needs to be done. This is what happens when you use your military as a police & peace keeping force....
We should non-stop carpet bomb every inch of Iraq, Afghanistan & Iran until every living thing is dead...
And that’s a start...
I have to agree with you. Why would a police major open a door to these thugs without firearms drawn?
Maybe if someone tells CNN a botched beheading can cause a concussion, as in football, they will cover the story. /s
Send in the Democrat Division! Send out the UAW scouts in their Chevy Volts!
“...leave no stone standing one upon the other...”
I think that is where this will stall out. There might even be a merger of Iran and Shi’ite Iraq into a larger Shi’ite state.
The sensible thing would have been to leave Saddam in charge. He was doing a good job at keeping the lid on the Islamic boiling pot. Then, the Bush team came along and f@#k'd everything all up. You can't blame Obama for this one. In fact, I agree with him just leave the place and let the Muslims fight it out.
Well, they do have a sense of humor.
Knowing what fate almost certainly awaited them, perhaps the so-called Iraqi Defense Force members and police should have stood their ground and taken out this clearly numerically INFERIOR invader force.
Heres MY plan from before 2009 and PROBABLY the one the few remaining sane American citizens assuming there ARE ANY should have implemented decades ago!
NOT ONE MORE DIME AND NOT ONE MORE DROP OF AMERICAN BLOOD!!
NOTICE TO ALL CITIZENS OF IRAQ
And they’re headed for 200 Marines. 200.
Obama is enjoying every minute of this.
