DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan - Pro-Taleban militants have released a video of an apparently teenage boy beheading one of 16 Pakistani soldiers kidnapped in a restive tribal area bordering Afghanistan.
The gruesome recording, a copy of which was obtained by AFP, will likely put further pressure on embattled US ally President Pervez Musharraf to crack down on Islamist violence in the frontier region.
The 35-minute video entitled Revenge first shows the 16 soldiers, all of them in uniform, who were taken hostage on August 9 in the South Waziristan tribal district.
Four teenage boys with Kalashnikov assault rifles, daggers and headbands with jihadi slogans are then shown along with one of the soldiers kneeling in front of them.
One boy cuts off the soldiers head using a knife and holds it up for the camera. The soldiers body was recovered on August 14 from a nearby town.
The video shows the victim saying just before his death that security forces should not fight against the Taleban.
The Pakistani military strongly condemned the video, saying it had not seen the recording but was aware of its existence.
It proves that they are terrorists. It is an act contrary to tribal customs and is also a cowardly act to kill an unarmed human being, chief military spokesman Major General Waheed Arshad said.
Negotiations are still underway to free the remaining soldiers as well as a Pakistani military officer and three other officials who were kidnapped in South Waziristan on Friday.
Pakistan has been hit by a wave of Islamist bloodshed since last months siege of the extremist Red Mosque in the capital in which more than 100 people died, most of them militants.
Wow! Somehow I must have missed out during my teenage years. Back then, I was more interested in going to the beach and dating girls.
This news report just further illustrates why Islam is "The Religion of Peace."
Hard to fathom how anyone can be brainwashed and driven so far afield of morality and humanity to actually carry something like this out — and believe that they are serving God by doing so.
It’s just incomprehensible to civilized human beings. No, scratch the “civilized” part. It’s incomprehensible to human beings — which they aren’t, in my book.
Doesn't mean they'll use them, but the folks out in the Tribal Territories are ignorant enough that there's no hope for their ever joining civilization.
Fellow Moslems or not the Paks at some point are going to realize those people are vicious animals who need disciplined permanently.
damn I like the way you think. these godless savages should be eliminated by any means possible, everyone of ‘em. quit screwing around and send in our big stuff once and for all. it’s time the rest of the world gets a display of the USA’s true firepower, and I don’t mean “shock and awe” either.
I wonder if he is going to get a merit badge from the Taliban Boy scout troop.
If you’re a mooslum, you’re a natural born murderer!
I didn’t know that this behavior was an exclusive to the jihadists. Ever heard of WWII Japan or Germany? They were quite the animals themselves in many ways.
You contradict yourself. In one breath you say we should be taking no prisoners, and then in the next breath you say we should execute (”put to death”) each and every captive. While I agree with your first sentiment (that we should not take any captives), I steadfastly disagree with your second (executing captives). I don’t care who the captive is, we DO NOT execute captives.
Agreed! They hate us, they will not give up their hate. They will die for their cause. We should oblige them. This is not like WWII. You could walk the streets safely only a few days after the ned of the war in Germany and Japan. Even Vietnam is comparatively safe nowdays.
Pakistan needs to put a big bounty on this little maggot’s head. The little Taliboys will knock this kind of crap off quickly.
Wow that Taliban, just goes to show some nuts will do anything to get a head.
indoctrinated from the age of 3 or so according to the ‘cartoons’ shown on Fox News recently...totally sick.
I couldn’t agree more.
ETERNAL PEACE, SURE
FLAME THROWER or NAPALM this is the ANSWER.
(This will even show them a little GLIMPSE of their AFTER DEATH LIFE...)
BURN BABY! BURN!!!
HERE AND THERE!!!
