Sometimes the only thing that will take down a bad guy with an improvised explosive device is a good guy with an improvised explosive device.
This video, which is undated and doesn’t mention location except that it’s in Iraq, was posted yesterday by individuals who identified themselves as members of the Mahdi Army.
It shows the anti-Islamic State organization setting a deadly trap for an Islamic State group suicide bomber.
The video began with pre-strike preparations, as the members of the Mahdi Army could be seen scoping out the desert landscape and placing the explosive device.
After some time, they let it be and withdrew to a relatively safe position.
Warning: graphic video of someone who totally deserved to die getting blown up:
That’s when a truck came by, allegedly with an Islamic State group suicide bomber inside.The truck hit the IED and was instantly blown to smithereens by it.
Judging by the cloud of smoke and the violence of the explosion, it seems extremely unlikely that anyone survived.
In the video’s description on LiveLeak, the uploader– who claimed to be with the Mahdi Army — railed against the Islamic State group’s importing of suicide bombers into Iraq and of foreign involvement.
“It should come as no surprise only 10-15% of the suicide bombers are actually Iraqi, further proof of the fact the foreigner terrorists are used as nothing but cannon fodder by their Iraqi Sunni hosts,” the video description read.
“(T)he Saudi terror regime is known to compensate relatively small sums of hush money to families of suicide bombers when the realization hits home that their sons blew themselves up for regional political ambitions and not Allah & virgins,” it added.
And, of course, this guy isn’t going to be meeting Allah or any virgins, but taking the long, one-way ride down the River Styx. Serves him right.
