ISIS Are Proud of Their Atrocities

Rusty asks that we read Ace's post on the James Foley murder.

In previous wars, America has demonized its opponents, claiming they've committed unspeakable atrocities. (It's an odd and disturbing fact that America never accused the Nazis of the Holocaust until after the war had been won, for fear of making it seem like a "War for Jews.")

As far as I know this is the first war where our enemies are so demonic that they proudly walk up to the camera and commit their atrocities as a commercial advertisement.

Even the Nazis exterminated the Jews in relative secret. (Not to claim that Germans didn't know something bad was going on -- just to say that even the Nazis realized such barbarity could not be carried out in the open.)

These people are true psychopaths.

Rusty has pointed out for years that we punish war crimes, while the Taliban, al-Qaeda and ISIS celebrate war crimes.

The only beef I really have with Ace's post is, These people are true psychopaths. It might have written as, These people are truly evil.

Because that's how I see Islamic terrorists. As the most evil thing currently manifest on this Earth.
