Iraq is to hang some 14 notorious terrorists involved in the massacre of 1,700 soldiers in 2014 when the macabrely murderous US-created, Saudi-funded, and Zionist-armed Takfiri heretics had seized Tikrit.
The victims who were mostly young recruits kidnapped from Camp Speicher were shot in cold blood after being lined up with hands tied behind their backs.
As borne out by videos and photos the Takfiris used to load scores of soldiers onto trucks, forcing them to lie face down and opening fire on them. Many were dragged to the edge of the Tigris River and thrown into the water on being shot in the heads.
These 14 deserving of capital punishment as well as 17 of their comrades-in-crimes who were executed a couple of years ago for involvement in the same massacre are not the only killers of the 1,700 said soldiers – a fraction of the slaughter of the innocent men, women, and children killed in the most merciless manner.
In other words, thousands of Takfiri terrorists, whose hands are stained with the blood of the Iraqi people, should be tracked down and handed the same punishment after due trials, if they have not yet been caught and jailed.
Terrorists on the loose are a danger for all peace-loving societies, especially since these bestial elements are devoid of any humanitarian values. In some Muslim societies, these terrorists hide behind called puritanical religious values in order to carry out their nefarious ends, while in other Muslim countries they openly insult Islam and claim freedom.
Unfortunately, the so-called human rights bodies of the West, instead of lauding the justice meted to killers not fit to survive a single day, have again sprang to the defence of terrorists by accusing Iraqi judicial officials of ‘summary executions’.
The reason is obvious. They fear the exposure of the US involvement in the mass massacres of Iraq during the years 2014-to-2017 when American aircraft used to drop crates of weapons for the Takfiris on the pretext of carrying out sorties against them, while deliberately targeting encampments of the Hashd-ash-Sha’bi (Popular Mobilisation Units).
To be precise, the US is the ‘Mother of all Terrorism’, as is evident by its record destabilizing, terrorizing, and killing thousands – if not hundreds of thousands of innocent people in Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Yemen, and Iran.
Thanks, however, to the untiring efforts of the immortal icon of the anti-terrorist campaign, Iran’s Qasem Soleimani and his trenchmate, Iraq’s Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, PMU succeeded in defeating the US-backed Takfiris and liberating all of Iraq.
Now we better understand why the super-terrorist so cowardly assassinated General Soleimani and al-Muhandis, and why the CENTCOM terrorists are still lingering in Iraq, despite the unanimous vote of the Iraqi parliament for their expulsion.
In view of this fact, it is a major mistake for the authorities in Iraq to allow the devilish Americans to stay.
The Iraqi are however determined, like all peace-loving people of other countries, to make justice prevail and the terrorists handed over the deserving punishment, including execution.
