Since the execution video (no English version or with subtitles) of Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh has been all but scrubbed from the net we have to rely on a play-by-play by the media like Shep Smith. While Smith did a decent job describing the 22 minute 34 second propaganda & execution video (STR is in possession of) he did a major disservice to people suggesting “you don’t need to see” this video…
WRONG! People SHOULD see this video and all ISIS execution videos to know & understand what we’re dealing with. Sticking your head in the sand, ignoring or pretending it didn’t happen won’t help anyone and that is what Smith more or less suggested.
Imagine if all Nazi films of the atrocities committed during WW2 were destroyed? Any story could be told about what happened in WW2 making the Nazis into the victims or claim they were wrongfully blamed! Video is proof of the evil taking place by islamic radicals and why EVERYONE should see what they do. Any site or organization that is actively engaged in scrubbing the internet of terrorist execution videos is in fact aiding islamic radicals! They allow the radicals the ability to write the narrative and tell any story they want because the media is too busy “protecting” people from the horrors of the world instead of reporting and showing it! Hell, the fact so many news outlets are saying the Jordanian pilot “appears to be burned alive” is an insult and disservice to viewers too. The Lt. al-Kaseasbeh didn’t “appear”, wasn’t “apparently” or purportedly burned alive..
HE WAS BURNED ALIVE AND THEN HAD RUBBLE DUMPED OVER HIS BODY.
To answer Smiths question why ISIS executed Lt. al-Kaseasbeh this way is simple. In the eyes of the killers this execution was symbolic to the “crimes” pilots like have committed against ISIS fighters and civilians. To islamic radicals if pilots are going to drop bombs which burn and bury/ crush people to death under rubble then these infidels should face the same fate. That is why Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh was burned and buried under rubble in the video.
One thing is for sure we are at war but have no leadership to engage this enemy. Want to know what it was like in the 1930’s with the rise of the Nazis? Look around you’re witnessing history repeat itself this ISIS, al Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Taliban etc are modern-day Nazis.
