Here Here Good Man!
Jester and I spent some time discussing if they murdered Syrian pilots were "willing martyrs" because it just seems so odd that people would go silently, willingly to the grave.Its an observation that I've seen several times, including from Gerald at Internet Anthropologist. A thought supported by the John Cantlie videos. But my observation was that since the Mujahideen Sura Council days in Iraq the norm is not a kicking and screaming victim. The murders are often banal, with the victim either doing the Thorazine Shuffle or so broken by previous mock executions that they have lost all will to resist and welcome the relief that death might bring from the daily torture and abuse. And for you Muslims out there reading, remember when you spoke of the brutality and torture of Saddam, Well ISIS IS SADDAM, with one AQI figurehead on top. So if you want the days of Saddam back, the days where anyone including his own Sunni brothers that opposed him were murdered in cold blood, be proud because no one wanted to resurrect his tyranny, but that is what you have now done with your support of ISIS. I leave you with Jester's link showing the probable location of the latest ISIS murders...

Go watch the Vice videos of what it is like to live under ISIS. It shows that prisoners convert, not just to Islam but to the ISIS brand of Islam. Many of these prisoners are killed anyway. It wouldn't be hard to find prisoners who have converted to ISIS and who view their deaths as furthering the cause.
It is just Stockholm syndrome carried out to an extreme.
