Let’s face facts: They may be fanatical, they may be omnipresent, and they may have the market cornered on Toyota pickup trucks, but they certainly aren’t the smartest jihadis in the Semtex factory.
The Islamic State group has managed to thrive because the West — especially President Barack Obama — have been unwilling to combat the threat emerging in Iraq and Syria. However, as this video proves, it certainly hasn’t been because we’re being outsmarted by these savages.
Take this video, from the U.K. Daily Mail (via LiveLeak). It’s shot by one jihadi as another in the traditional black-pajama garb talks to him, with a rocket propelled grenade launcher leaning against the wall.
For all I know, the man in the pajamas could have been talking about Marshall McLuhan’s theory of “hot” and “cold” media and how it completely misses the fact that human beings use extensions of themselves, as opposed to those extensions using them. However, I’m pretty sure he was talking about blowing a bunch of infidels up.
When he picked up the weapon, he decided to channel his inner video game player and shoot the weapon at his intended target through a small hole. However, not quite being James Bond, this genius chose not to get close to the hole, but instead fire from the middle of the room.
You may, perhaps, begin to predict what’s about to transpire here.
The Islamic State group terrorist fired the rocket propelled grenade. However, he managed to miss the small opening he was trying to fire through, instead hitting the wall of the room — and creating a huge explosion. The video then cut out abruptly.
We normally hate to see anyone die. However, in this case, we’re willing to stomach it. After all, this was a man — I hesitate to use that word, but — who wanted to inflict death upon those who he thought didn’t deserve to live.
Instead, he inflicted death upon himself — proof that God was not only not on his side, but has a brutal sense of humor, as well.
