    Several days ago in response to that hysterical ISIS propagandist guy, I pointed out that ISIS is on the back foot and have been for the last 18 months; they are completely incapable of mounting large-scale offensives anymore and the trend will continue until ISIS is rolled up and Abu Bakr al Baghdadi is paraded through the streets of Baghdad naked in a cage

    I said the last part in jest, but it got me thinking; I generally consider myself to be somewhat liberal on the question of respecting people's rights. But Baghdadi is not a soldier, he does not get Geneva Convention protections (which prohibit the humiliation of captured POWs or using them for propaganda).

    One of the reasons Hitler killed himself was that he feared the Soviets would parade him through Red Square in a cage. On further reflection, I am not totally opposed to this; the total and utter crushing and humiliation of ISIS would send a clear message. The Islamists could not but conclude that Allah had abandoned a man by allowing him to be so profoundly humiliated before being hanged like a common criminal. Thus, it has strategic value beyond the pleasure I would get from seeing it happen.

    What say you?

    Haha yeah that's him.

    What do you think of the idea? Should the ISIS leader be paraded through the streets of Baghdad in a cage, while the citizens of Baghdad pelt him with rotten vegetables?

    And then lynched very very slowly, making sure he doesn't die quickly

    I wouldn't be in favour of that personally, I don't think we should physically torture someone for vengeance purposes (only for informational purposes in extreme situations).

    On the other hand, while I generally oppose the death penalty, I do not object to Baghdadi suffering the full penalty of Iraqi law and being hanged as a common criminal after being paraded through the streets in a cage (that parade should be when he is on his way to his execution; it will be a strong deterrent to anyone wanting to take up leadership of such a group in future)

    I would report him to the police to investigate the thread.

    Wasn't that a lie? Thought he ran off to Argentina.
