The ISIS massacre of 770 in Iraq that was so bloody it could be seen from space

The bloody aftermath of Islamic State’s mass execution of 770 Iraqi soldiers in Tikrit last year was so vast, it could be seen from space.

It was originally thought that 190 troops were slaughtered when the terror group overran and conquered Saddam Hussein’s hometown. But crucial satellite imagery uncovered three new execution sites and tripled the death toll.

These photographs, footage of the gruesome massacre and harrowing eyewitness accounts have now helped convict 24 of the ISIS fanatics behind the atrocity.

An Iraqi court has sentenced them to hang for their role in the slaughter of hundreds of soldiers on Wednesday. Four others were acquitted for lack of evidence and as many as 604 other militants, who are also thought to have taken part, are still at large.  h/t JEH

ISIS Massacre seen from Space

    The iraqis are fabulously incompetent.
    If you are going to attempt training of new army recruits with a war zone practically over the next ridge from your facility, logic might suggest the first priority should be the issuing of rifles and machine guns plus much target practice.

    • Ghost soldiers have difficulty holding their weapons.

      • simus1

        They are ghosts now, that is certain. As to their lack of weapons, the stuff meant for them was probably stolen from depots to equip the rag tag shia militias or secretly sold to the truckloads to provide nest eggs for California retirement.

    • If the Iraqis aren’t even going to attempt to defend themselves, arming them is just a bloody stupid thing to do. Arm the Kurds, forget the Iraqi police and “army”.

    But in Syria, they’re our allies. What a fucken bong show.

    • Absolutely the dumbest thing we ever did. Not one atrocity has been stopped to my knowledge.

  • Alain

    At the rate we are importing Muslims, it won’t be that much longer before the same thing will happen here.

      Not on my property!

    All that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good men to stand by and do nothing.

    • Alain

      True and we fail to follow that rule at home in our own country. Now we tolerate the intolerant and reward the worst type of behaviour while punishing the innocent. My point is let us clean up our own house and mess before we try exporting our good intentions.

      If you see two bears fighting at the zoo, you don’t wade in there and break it up.

      • mobuyus

        No you wade in there and break it down.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Don’t hurt ’em, Hammer.

  • mauser 98

    why can ISIS convoys of weapons, supplies heading for attack not be seen from satellites. ?
    NSA, CIA all knowing. …or a back door deal here?

    • Alain

      Ain’t that a fact.

    • mobuyus

      These are the places warthog pilots should be training around the clock and this whole sorry mess would be wrapped up in no time.

      • mauser 98

        or Barry’s drones.. no problem in Pakistan weddings or in Yemen

    • That don’t look right;)

      • mauser 98

        on it’s way

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    It’s natural selection.
    If you are stupid enough to surrender to IS then you deserve to die.

    • mobuyus

      obama surrendered in the audacity of hope that they would let him live.

  • Gary

    Nothing says Ramadan like a mass slaughter .

  • Barrington Minge

    If the US can see these animals so clearly on satelite images, then why the hell don’t they bomb the shit out of them there and then?
    Git ‘er done!!!!

    • mobuyus

      Get ‘er did!!!!
