Sickening. I don't even know what to think about the world when people openly celebrate death, even in vengeance. I guess some people really do just want to watch the world burn.

Jordan’s King Abdullah ibn al-Hussein, who has trained as a pilot, may fly a bomber himself on Thursday in the country’s retaliation against the ISIS.
Several Arabic-language newspapers reported late Wednesday that the monarch would personally participate in bombing raids on the terrorist group, citing his vow Tuesday to “strike them in their strongholds.”
The king was in Washington when news broke Tuesday of pilot Muadh al-Kasasbeh’s demise at the hands of ISIS extremists. Meeting with the House Armed Services Committee shortly before leaving for Amman, he reportedly quoted the Clint Eastwood’s film “Unforgiven” and said that Jordan would pursue the jihadis until it ran “out of fuel and bullets.”
Meanwhile, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said Tuesday that “nothing’s going to change” in U.S. policy toward ISIS as a result of Kasasbeh’s murder.
Talk about personally leading charge, i really wonder if the treatment of the pilot was deliberately done to get a reaction. IF so to what end ? Doesn't ISIS already have too many enemies ?

Wow... here's a mature, responsible, grown-up man! Calling the shots, and taking full responsibility for his words and decisions.
I usually don't like monarchy but here's a prince I'd be quite okay with.
Now get me only one State leader like this in the West. I dare you!
Just look at these "untouchables" from the ivory tower media, like Timothy Garton Ash calling for more blood and WWIII... Who among them would even dare going on the battlefront they contributed to build up? Not even for war reporting... a job given to the lower-profile reporters *coughs* SAS *cough*. Buncha total cowards.

A descendent of Muhammad leading the fight against radical Islamic jihadists?
Can that be true?
If so, awesome.
No, it's not true because isis has nothing to do with islam.
