Hogs of War

 

I love the irony:

 

Three Islamic State fighters were mauled to death by a pack of wild boar, reports U.K.’s  The Times. Another 5 militants were also injured in the attack.

The men were said to be taking cover in a field as they set up an ambush for local tribesmen, local leaders said.

“It is likely their movement disturbed a herd of wild pigs, which inhabit the area as well as the nearby cornfields,” Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and supervisor of anti-ISIS forces, told the Times. “The area is dense with reeds, which are good for hiding in.”

The incident occurred after Islamic State fighters executed 25 people in the town of Hawija, one of three Islamic State complete-control strongholds in Iraq. The executions were ordered after several people tried to escape the town, according to local leaders. 

 

Go here to read the rest.  As the Bard said:

And Caesar’s spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice
Cry ‘Havoc,’ and let slip the hogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial

  1. This is poetry in motion.
    A dance between two like minded creatures. So fitting that the Mohammed fanatics ended up as pig excrement. Poor pigs.

  2. “Cry Havoc! And let slip the hogs of war!”

    Theological question: Do they still get 72 virgins?

    Anyhow, more and faster.

  3. “Theological question: Do they still get 72 virgins?”

    No. You must kill infidels to get them. They now go to the Islamic holding cell (that makes Purgatory look like a rose garden) to await their final judgement.

    Of course, their is always OUR theology…
