More Muslim Savagery
Iraqi teenagers dragged the bloody bodies of two American soldiers from a wrecked vehicle and pummeled their faces with concrete blocks Sunday, witnesses said, describing a burst of savagery in a city once safe for Americans.
Witnesses to the Mosul attack said gunmen shot two soldiers driving through the city center, sending their vehicle crashing into a wall. The 101st Airborne Division said the soldiers were driving to another garrison.
About a dozen swarming teenagers dragged the soldiers’ bodies out of the wreckage and beat them with concrete blocks, the witnesses said.
“They lifted a block and hit them with it on the face,” Younis Mahmoud, 19, said.
Television video showed the soldiers’ bodies splayed on the ground as U.S. troops secured the area. One victim’s foot appeared to have been severed.
The frenzy recalled the October 1993 scene in Somalia, when locals dragged the bodies of Marines killed in fighting with warlords through the streets.
We really shouldn’t be shocked. Savagery, rape, torture, mutilation, fraticide, and mayhem were part of this culture for the past 1400 years.
