Scum indeed.

They have plumbed new depths of depravity today.

If this is true then my deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends. So very sad, a truly deplorable act; I have no more words.

Words fail me at the depth of cruelty these people perpetrate. To call them animals is an insult to animals.

Makes me want to drag the femail that they wanted to trade, and give her the same treatment, but...............

Pictures on live leak, looks as if it's true. Absolutely despicable.


hope Jordan carry out their warning to ISIS and the coalition give Raqqa some Kobane loving....


You are with ISIS or against them.

I hope Jordan throw ROE out the window and turn Raqqa into a mass grave and a lesson to the rest of IS. Either pick up a gun and fight them or be seen as a supporter.

I know your emotional reaction, but we don't do things that way, do we*. But they have self-created a World of shock and disgust [exempt some aberrant nations] that does nothing to further their 'cause' and quite probably disgusts much of the global Islamic community as well.

Containment and attrition is the only credible option, IMO. Any form of intellectual approach is a waste of time.

Let the rest of the Islamic World sort out their Islamic "brothers" ... it's their fight, not ours. Perhaps the spreading threat might make some of them get off their prayer mats and attempt to establish some sort of harmonious co-existence. We eventually managed it with the different branches of Christianity a long while back, albeit at some terrible cost.


* I think a 500b LGB is the way these days ... unless left to 'Coalition Partners', in which case we look away and pretend it didn't happen.

My sincere condolences to his family,

personally I'd rather not say what I would do.

Trouble is we just skirt around the issues and a few bombs dropped on them isn't going to result in an end game, that would need boots on the ground of troops that can match them.
Shame they didn't get Ebola instead of Africa.

God moves in mysterious ways.

The Arabs get oil, the Africans get diseases, South America gets drug production, North America gets drug consumption, Europe gets the EU and China gets everything else.

Sorry, I shouldn't go whimsical on this thread, but to say what I really felt would probably breach every rule on the Forum, use of the Internet and decent standards.

RIP to the poor young gent, and sympathy to his family and friends.

Sadly, this young man will only be a press statistic by next month. We should not forget the borders changed today. Murder by beheading is depraved, but this goes far beyond. It's not an execution at all, this is torturing someone to death. This must be sorted out by Muslims. We should support them, but they should lead the way. This is not a religious fight by IS, Allah will have a special welcome for these boys and girls, very special interviews without coffee and virgins.......
RIP young man, hopefully some good will come from your suffering

Jordan is going to execute all of their Al Qaeda prisoners in retaliation, shame our politicians don't have such big balls.

And they are not hanging around, they will be dead within hours

No words, this is beyond the pale. RIP Moaz Al-Kasasbeh and condolences to your poor family.

A lot of people who frequent this forum are mates with (or know) someone working in that AOR, I have no idea what may be going through their minds tonight. I feel for you and your families guys, all the best.

Horrible news. Astonishing depravity that seems to make little sense.
It appeared that IS were managing to divide opinion in Jordan by holding this poor lad. I'd imagine that the public's resolve would strengthen somewhat now?

There is a video, and I'm guilty of watching it.

On one hand I plead with you not to see it, and on the other demand that you and every free thinking person, should witness what the whole world is up against.

Know you enemy....and then destroy the bastards wherever they lie.

US TV now reporting that Jordanian sources believe the pilot was killed on Jan 3. The video has been described in detail and was extensively edited / produced by ISIS showing, inter alia, the King of Jordan asking for volunteers to fight ISIS, a joint statement by President Obama & the King of Jordan, the captured pilot's description of his mission which included details of coalition assets from other Muslim countries, before showing the actual act and aftermath which I won't describe here. Just horrific beyond words. Jordanian authorities have confirmed that execution of prisoners they hold will commence tomorrow.

I've seen most of the videos and stills from the various executions over the past few months in my current job, and this is another one that will stay with me for a very long time.

There is only one crumb of comfort that can be taken from this. Lt Kassassbeh died standing tall, on his feet, completely unbowed by the savagery being inflicted on him. And I hope the savages that did this to him noted that small point. That act of defiance right to the very end. A powerful statement by a brave young man that ISIL should note: You may hurt us, but you will never ever beat us.

Lt Kassassbeh I salute you Sir.

I think maybe now is the time that the Coalition should decide to deploy over welming force. We are fighting an enemy that has weapons and money - the idea of ground forces engaging in Iraq and Syria might start alarm bells but
we know that IS are here to the death - the time is now for the coalition to deploy some 'shock and awe' -whether thats Apache's -MBT's -B-52's or a combination -tragic as it might seem but Raqqa needs leveling!
