To say that the Islamic State group thugs are brutal and sadistic would be nothing short of an understatement, and while much of the world is aghast at the atrocities they have committed in the name of Allah, some are flipping the script and using their own brutal tactics against them.
Take for example a video that was recently released by Kurdish Peshmerga fighters showing a convoy of armored Humvees moving toward the front in the battle to retake Mosul, Iraq, from the Islamist militants.
As the vehicles moved past the man holding the camera, it became clear that some of the Humvees had the bodies of dead Islamic State group fighters strapped to their hoods.
You can watch the video right here, but be forewarned that it contains some graphic content:
It is unclear at this point whether the bodies were strapped to the hoods to serve as a warning to the rest of their fellow Islamic radicals, or merely as trophies to serve as encouragement to other Kurdish fighters.
Regardless, it was a clear sign that the bloody battle to retake Mosul was underway in earnest, a battle that will most certainly result in incredible bloodshed and loss of life on all sides.
It is possible that the Kurds deliberately chose to strap the dead bodies of their foes on the hood of their vehicles as something of a “one-up” on the Islamic State group thugs, considering that those jihadists have used this tactic before with dead Kurdish fighters and captured Yazidi sex slaves who no longer served their purpose.
This is sadistic and brutal and utterly atrocious, but war often is.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter so that everyone can see what Kurdish fighters are doing with dead Islamic State group thugs as they press on toward Mosul.
