  2. This reminds me of the Soviet commanders who looked the other way after the Ruskies conquered Berlin. For the most part, Soviet commanders were not terribly concerned with what their men did to the Germans (though I do remember reading that some were executed for rapes of German women). Considering that the Germans had initiated the attack upon the Russians and then proceeded to lose, the Russians wanting to beat the Germans down after their defeat isn't something that's terribly surprising.

    Personally, I would be concerned that some random Iraqi dude got caught in the fray and is wrongly accused and hurt by this. However, if it is a confirmed ISIS soldier...yeah, not so much sympathy. If the Iraqis transfer him for a brief stint doing skydiving, I'm not going to be terribly hurt.

  4. I'm not so sure this is a good thing.
    The Iraqis are denying themselves both possible intelligence resources and setting a precedent that this is an OK thing to do.

  5. Yeah why didn't they just hug the poor ISIS terrorists and tell them they should never ever rape, enslave and murder innocent women, men, children, goats and donkeys again.

  8. Oh look I'm already right.

    I say give them a trial and hang anyone who wasn't forced to join at gunpoint. I'm not in favor of babying them, but battlefield executions like this have broader effects than some dead terrorists.

  10. Isis already set this precedent anyway as punishment for homosexuality and apostasy, only they've been doing it to innocent civilians.
    It's not like US soldiers are going to start doing it too.
    Yeah it's pretty savage, but these guys don't really have the privilege of being able to view Isis as a distant threat. They took off the kid gloves.

  11. I know everyone already hates ISIS and don't need more reasons, but one of the worst things I've ever read online was this reddit AMA with an ISIS solider. The guy was just disgustingly and disturbingly callous. Normally I'm empathetic but in this case I was just happy when I heard he had died.

  12. I would think something similar would have happened in the aftermath of World War 2. The civilians would have to be demilitarized somehow as well as 'processed' for potential enemy intelligence.

  13. At least most German soldiers weren't given any choice since denying conscription meant "a guy in a suit knocks at your door" and they were generally decent folk.
    ISIS fighters on the other hand had the freedom to join for the most part and they're predominantly psychopathic.

  14. I agree with you. Someone has to take the "high road" even just a little bit or else this shit eventually keeps propagating with a different name.

    But if they're proven isis members, by all means execute them gruesomely.

    And more generally, it really does warm my heart that isis is starting to seriously get its ass kicked.

  15. You can't win a war against barbarians by acting civilized. It's unfortunate but the only alternative is to keep lobbing softballs and watch the innocents suffer.

  16. It's the same for me.
    IS members are the worst, barely human filth that the world has to offer right now.
    Good fucking riddance.

    But it does leave kind of a sour aftertaste. Not so much about the people that get their comeuppance - I hope they'll fry in the deepest pits of hell. But rather it's a matter of principle for me.
    Not gonna lose sleep over this, though.

    Especially since IS is using incredibly cowardly tacticts such as driving a truck into a crowd and blowing it up with an IED.
    When you lose friends, comrades and family members to such atrocities, you're not going to play nice once you get your fingers around the filthy necks of these assholes.
    Sadly, that's just how things are.

    This.

    Yes you can.
    Put any possible Terrorist into a prison cell and give them at least some sort of court hearing.
    As @Alec Benson Leary already said, it would be preferable if the Iraqi soldiers actually took the high road on this one. It's kind of what we expect them to do, I'd say.

    I'm not sorry for the people that get tossed over a cliff and shot (assuming this isn't turning into a witchhunt, mind you). It could not have happened to more deserving fith and scum.
    But, again, it kinda is a matter of principle.

  17. Exactly, ISIS was brutal towards anyone not them, so the only response is to act towards them the same way. They can't be bargained or reasoned with.
    Amen on that. :drink:

  18. I just can't bring myself to give any semblance of a fuck about this, because we're talking about the group that
    • Burned women alive for not having sex with them
    • Beheaded teenage boys for listening to Western pop music
    • Killed/drove away Yazidi men and then enslaved their wives/daughters/sisters. Thousands of Yazidi women- including girls as young as 8- have been sold and bought at literal slave auctions before being brutally raped
    • Driven trucks into defenseless crowds of people
    • Gunned down defenseless crowds of people
    • Slaughtered Christians during their Christmas/Easter services
    • Slaughtered Shia Muslims during their prayer services
    • Brutally tortures and murders people if they're not 100% on board with ISIS
    • Prevents civilians from leaving their territories because they need civilians to be their meat shields
    So yeah, fuck them. I'm sure that the Iraqi soldiers who killed them lost family members/friends/comrades to ISIS's brutality. If I were in their position, I probably wouldn't be thinking about due process.

  19. Witchhunts are exactly why people should avoid playing by the same rules as the enemy. It's way too easy to say "we get to behave horribly because they did it first". That's basically what socjus is.
