Animals Having "Fun"

When I saw the Snoking Gun entry that Thomas wrote about this morning, it made me sick to see the images of the tortured, and what al-Qaeda does to it's captives. Earlier this month, Mullah Dadullah was killed in Afghanistan by NATO forces working with Afghani forces. The Economist speculated that he may have been betrayed from amongst his own:

The intriguing question is whether Dadullah's death reveals divisions in the Taliban that might open the way for possible negotiations. There are suggestions he may have been betrayed. Certainly Western commanders are not going to do anything to allay the paranoia over internal security evident in Taliban ranks. American forces were watching Dadullah from the moment he crossed the Pakistani border into Helmand province on May 10th; they killed him within 24 hours.

You may be wondering why I am bringing this up now and what this has to do with "animals having 'fun.'" Because of this post from DR. Rusty Shackleford. This is an exclusive for the Jawa Report. He has posted several still-frame images of the beheading of a suspected spy in the Taliban. The images are extremely graphic, and as he notes in the post, the images are those that were censored in the video that is making it's way around the Internet.

What is more disgusting about these images is that the person doing the beheading is a twelve year-old boy, and he is being coached by an older man as to how it is done. This is the idea of fun that the animals enjoy. There is simply no way to comprehend the uncivilized behavior of zealots like this. It is not logical, nor is it proper. It's simply disgusting. Again, I warn our readers who decide to venture over to the good doctor's site that the images are very graphic. Likewise so are the comments that follow, and I cannot argue with what many of those that left a comment have to say.
