ISIS love to perform Medieval-style beheadings, because that is just the sort of thing that a Medieval bunch of thugs do. Yes, people have been ground up in various commercial food-processing machines, even dissolved in acid (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3598477/ISIS-execute-25-people-lowering-NITRIC-ACID-Iraqi-spies-tied-rope-dropped-vat-public-warning-others.html), but nothing has the real sting of terror as hacking someone’s head off.
Witness the latest, where a 15-year-old boy loses his head after being caught listening to Western music in Iraq:
ISIS seem to use piddling knives for their gruesome task:
Only on a few occasions have I seen swords used, but never axes. The ISIS executioner, the Bulldozer, all 20 stone of him captured last year, used to do a clean job, but today, the executions involve hacking a bloke’s head of. This could be to increase the terrorism effect, but most likely it is due to the executioner being incompetent.
Any half-decent Viking or samurai would spit on such a display of blade work. I look forward to a reinvigorated US military under Trump taking then all down.
