Jihadis Learn to Die Rather Than Run

ISIS Burns Its Own Jihadis Alive After Losing Ramadi to the Iraqi Army

In what's just more proof that ISIS is by far the most diabolical terrorist organization in the world, Fox News reports that its leaders burned their own jihadists alive because they fled when the Iraqi city of Mosul was attacked by the Iraqi army.
ISIS fighters who fled to the terror group’s Iraqi stronghold of Mosul after being defeated in Ramadi were burned alive in the town square, sources told, in an unmistakable message to fighters who may soon be defending the northern city from government forces.

Several residents of Mosul recounted the grisly story for stateside relatives, describing the deadly reception black clad jihadists got when they made it to Mosul, some 250 miles north of the city retaken by Iraqi forces operating with cover from U.S. air power.
A former resident of Mosul who now lives in the U.S. says that his family back home told him what happened:
They were grouped together and made to stand in a circle, and set on fire to die.
Several other Iraqi refugees have heard similar stories from family members still in Mosul. Michael Pregent, a terrorism expert and former intelligence adviser to Gen. David Petraeus, says this kind of brutality -- even towards its own fighters -- is nothing new for ISIS:
There is no surprise on executing ISIS fighters from Ramadi. They did the same to fighters after Tikrit.
The "sin'"of the executed jihadis is that they didn't fight to the death when Ramadi -- an important strategic city in Iraq -- was attacked and eventually retaken by the Iraqi army (with air support from the U.S.). Apparently not dying in battle is a deadly sin in the eyes of ISIS's leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. And he means that literally. This group doesn't just kill outsiders, as other terror groups do, but even its own members.

And they don't get their 72 virgins, either.

That's going to put a dent in recruitment efforts.

These devout jihadis "know" that to die in battle for Islam is to immediately be transported to paradise, with their 72 houris eagerly awaiting to serve them. So what's to fear about dying in battle? They should have fought to the death. They obviously were NOT True(tm) Muslims. Off with their heads!

I don't get it.

This is why they can never be a conquering force. This is Stalinist Russia without an industrial machine to produce heavy weapons. Either make a hasty charge with no support against entrenched German positions, or die by Commissars with machine guns for your cowardice. It doesn't win battles, ever. They may think they are the ancient Spartans, but it is not the case. Even the ancient Spartans were defeated for failure to adapt.
