Ding-Dong Baghdadi’s Dead (Delayed)


We have had a rough time of late, but are planning to make a comeback as soon as possible. Here is the last article we wrote but were unable to publish at that time. We thank our readers for their understanding.

According to reports we have read, Islamic State founder and spiritual guide, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was cornered by a combined American Special Forces team and detonated himself when he messed up taking a tunnel which was a dead end. Strangely enough, it was not the approaching American soldiers which frightened him into murdering his three children while committing suicide; it was the unnamed hero, their full partner and soldier, their service K-9. Facing the immediate and singular threat of this brave and faithful soldier caused this supposed brave soldier of Allah to surrender his life rather than try and fight this wonderful animal. So much for his presumed vicious and valiant fighting skills as he appeared to be more of a frighten child than a soldier of Allah. The end would not have been any different as the rest of the team was not far behind and would have finished whatever was required to complete their mission. The Service K-9 was injured during the operation and is reported to be making a full recovery and remains in theater and has been returned to duty with its handler. These beautiful animals are inseparable from their teams and specifically tied to their handlers, better stated as best friend and protector, though the dog will claim they are protecting those serving with them.

The details are thus far scant with further details sure to surface over time. President Trump Tweeted, “We have declassified a picture of the wonderful dog (name not declassified) that did such a GREAT JOB in capturing and killing the Leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi!” Finally, President Trump has committed to an understatement as the Service K-9 Corps has historically produced some of the most unbelievable animals. In Armed Services history, these animals have come in all shapes and sizes from some camels gifted to President Lincoln to help fight the Civil War to porpoises to K-9s to rodents trained for infiltration using small cameras and microphones. These Service K-9s are just as well trained as the humans they serve alongside. One cannot overplay the fearlessness and awareness of these beautiful beasts. There have been uncountable times that they have warned of approaching ambush points to sniffing out explosive devices such as mines on to almost anything one could imagine.

President Trump further commented about Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi that he died like a dog. Perhaps a better retort might have been that he died facing an American dog as referring to al-Baghdadi as a dog is an insult to dogs everywhere. It is known that at least two of al-Baghdadi’s wives also died during the operation but it is unclear if they were struck by crossfire or committed suicide, but who really cares. The fact that al-Baghdadi surrounded himself with his children for protection and murdered them when taking his own life tells chapters about his character, if there was any. He was no different than the “brave” Arab Palestinians who place children at the front throwing stones at soldiers while they stand well back out of harms way and shoot at the IDF soldiers. Soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan have reported about the terrorist use of children as their protective armor understanding that American soldiers, just like their IDF counterparts, will not engage targets if doing so imperils the lives if children. But this is one of the main and most basic differences between their psychology and that of the civilized world, life for us means everything, to them it is just a throw-away tool. When it comes down to the bottom line, the current war, World War III, is about values and the survival of civilization or taking the world back ten centuries or more. Only one side can prevail, either the civilized or the barbarous, that is the decision we need to realize and focus upon, nothing else. Thank you our brave American Special Forces and all soldiers fighting for civilization to survive and a special affectionate thank you to one brave service K-9 who went first into harms way protecting his troops.
