Something Worse Than Being Burned To Death

To be flip, so what else is new.
ISIS executed a captured Jordanian pilot by burning him alive - Business Insider

It may have been a mistake over the years on my part to have applied "walk a mile in their shoes" to situations beyond the inept clerk or school bully.  There is no tragedy in my life to begin to compare being burned alive. There are a couple of  moving box filled with well wore, very ugly, imaginary shoes. It took about all of five seconds to decide that this just wasn't worth it. It also make it easier to see that after it all it is over for him and hopefully at peace.

 Call ISIS what you like barbarians, a cult of death, or adolescent children. That doesn't mean its new behavior for them as the press make it out. I don't think this is even the worst way the have killed some one.
Sick: Obama Just Showed ISIS Where His Priorities Lie 
"Following the disturbing release of a video depicting James Foley, a New Hampshire reporter who disappeared during an assignment in Syria, being beheaded by terrorists, many looked to Barack Obama for his comments regarding the disturbing news."
I got the sense that the beheading was not carried out with guillotine like precision of kindness.
"Despite warnings from experts, including former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell, that this development is a direct threat to America’s safety and should be met with a strong military response, Obama was reportedly not troubled enough to cancel his latest round of golf."
How horrible to have your death dismissed like that? It was over. For Foley it made little difference. The real horror is the question of what if your don't die.
Those are the are stop me in my tracks, that I can't get my head around. Those have been CONTINUING since at least continuing September. Graphic Warning
   "ISIS militants are selling abducted Iraqi children at markets as sex slaves, using them as suicide bombers and killing others by crucifixion or burying them alive, a watchdog has said."
I don't know, but the U.N. added:
 "The 18 independent experts who worked on the report have now called on Iraqi authorities to take all necessary measures to 'rescue children' under the control of Islamic State and to prosecute perpetrators of crimes."
Prosecute   is  not  the   first  thing that comes to mind, U.N. And it can allways get worse.
Yazidi girl tells of horrific ordeal as Isil sex slave
 "Our torturers do not even spare the women who have small children with them. "Nor do they spare the girls - some of our group are not even 13 years old. Some of them will no longer say a word." The woman, given the false name Mayat by La Repubblica, said the women were raped on the top floor of the building, in three rooms. The girls and women were abused up to three times a day by different groups of men.
"They treat us as if we are their slaves. The men hit us and threaten us when we try to resist. Often I wish that they would beat me so severely that I would die."
I don't know,
 but according to our leader is like segregation in the south. I think I'll hold on to that little insanity just to keep mine.
