Taliban Release Horrific Snuff Video, World Yawns

We have yet to hear Leon Panetta state that he finds the Taliban war crimes “utterly deplorable.”

When a few Marines urinated on the bodies of dead Taliban terrorists in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan, the outcry from the the chattering classes was immediate and very loud.

Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta condemned the battlefield action as “utterly deplorable.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed “total dismay.”

That two senior American government officials even commented on such a minor incident is evidence that the Obama administration is in perpetual appeasement and apology mode to the world’s most deplorable players.

General Patton expresses his contempt for the enemy by urinating in the Rhine, March 24, 1945.

Let us recall that Gen. George S. Patton urinated in the Rhine in 1945. Continuing this traditional method of expressing contempt for the enemy, Winston Churchill urinated on the Siegfried Line that same year. The only difference being that  Churchill was politically more cautious than Patton—to say the least—and forbade any photos.

Marines should, from now on, take a page from Churchill’s playbook. Keep urinating—when you gotta go on terrorists you gotta go—but for goodness sake, don’t film it.

Meanwhile, as the barbarous Taliban continue their reign of terror with a truly horrifying mass murder filmed for maximum exposure, we have yet to hear cries of outrage from Panetta or Clinton.

Maybe that’s because the Obama administration is sitting down and making nice to these IslamoNazis.

And remember kids, even though the Taliban were howling Allahu Akhbar as they murdered bound and blindfolded prisoners, it has nothing to do with Islam.

Blindfolded and handcuffed to each other on a barren hilltop, Pakistani soldiers wait for death at the hands of a merciless Taliban fighter.

Fifteen men were lined up for execution, the chilling scene captured on film by the Taliban for a video released as a warning to the Pakistani army operating near the Afghan border.

The Frontier Corps soldiers were seized last month in what the Taliban said was an operation to avenge the deaths of insurgents in Pakistan.

The video shows one of the killers from the Pakistan Taliban, or TTP, holding an AK-47 rifle and speaking with fury about revenge.

‘Twelve of our comrades were besieged and mercilessly martyred in the Khyber Agency [area],’ said the militant. ‘Our pious women were also targeted.

‘To avenge those comrades, we will kill these men. We warn the government of Pakistan that if the killing of our friends is not halted, this will be the fate of you all.’

One of the men shoves a clip into his assault rifle and fires a few rounds into the back of the heads of some of the soldiers. ‘God is greatest,’ the Taliban yell.

Other fighters step up and take turns pumping bullets into the men, some wearing green military uniforms. Each time a soldier collapses, the man standing next to him is pulled in that direction by the handcuffs. After the executions, the Taliban militants stare at the bodies slumped on the ground.

‘If the killing of our friends is not stopped, this will be the fate of all infidel armies, God willing,’ says one militant.

Comment Rules

Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    I am surrounded by people who hold Hillary Clinton-like sentiments.  And, they are invariably those who need our guys most.

      I work in Hollywood, also surrounded, outnumbered, but I refuse to appease a bunch of 7th century jihadists.

    When I heard of this I thought (a) how stupid to put it on the Internet (didn’t they learn anything from Abu Ghraib?) and (b) I thought immediately a powerful passage from Eugene Sledge’s book With The Old Breed
    The fighting at Peleliu was horrific – and Sledge describes a scene during a lull where the Marines are resting – and one is playing “tiddly winks” trying to toss a stone into the open skull of a Japanese. 
    His book was a basis for both Ken Burns The War and the recent miniseries The Pacific.
    Sledge wrote the book, as I recall (1981) , years later for some catharsis. 
    Neither Abu Ghraib nor “Urinegate” really bother me; there are plenty of worse things in war than putting women’s panties on a prisoner’s head – certainly seeing your comrades killed/wounded might even warrant my relieving myself on an enemy – but I wouldn’t film it or put it on the Internet…
    Unfortunately these Marines will be punished now when in years past it wouldn’t have even been acknowledged.

      Sledge’s book is a classic. I have an uncle, now deseased, who fought in the Pacific. He was a wonderful man with something of a drinking and gambling problem. I once asked him about his experiences in the war and his eyes just went dead. It was a terrifying transformation.

    Patton knew he wasn’t going to make the Germans hate Americans any more than they already did. 
    But our politicians, including Bush, think after the first attack on the WTC, the bombings at our African embassies, the attack on the Cole, 9/11, Daniel Pearl and the other attacks and atrocities, that if we make nice we can get the Taliban to sit down and dialogue with us.  Maybe Obama will get Dr. Phil or Oprah to mediate.  How well did that work when there was protesting in the streets of Tehran and Obama said he thought it was a fair election.
    The world and this country would be a lot different but for soldiers like Patton, Sherman or Pershing.  I wish the politicians would tell the world what they can do with their outrage and unless they want to fight the jihadists they should shut up about our soldiers relieving themselves on a battlefield.

      Appeasement was once a dirt word. Now it’s become a politically correct ideology. I’m still horrified and frightened that Panetta and Clinton commemented so vigorously on this nothing incident.
