Dolls of death.. dolls of doom.
Iraqi forces prevented a major Islamic State (previously ISIS/ISIL) attack as they found and disabled 18 booby-trapped dolls with explosives inside just north of the capital Baghdad. The plot targeted Shia Muslims going on an upcoming religious pilgrimage.
This from RT:
The diabolical plan was to scatter all the dolls alongside the road between Baghdad and Karbala during the Arbaeen pilgrimage, which is a Shia Muslim annual religious observance.
Millions of Shia Muslims walk the path every year. In 2014, there was a new record number of pilgrims, totaling 17.5 million people.
I attempt to recoil from news like this. On one hand, if it’s true, it’s depravity at its finest. And on the other side of the coin, it could always be state propaganda from someone who is trying to compel people with morality into a position of war theater.
Regardless, as a whole, there is something chilling about the perversion of children in this world–the suffering of children.. the theft of childhood.. the insanity of adults who warp the mind of the youth and make their pain on this planet great. The biggest crime a human can commit to anyone–I really believe–is to steal their innocence or their virtue..
Putting bombs in dolls is low.. But nothing new on this sickening planet.. There are times when the bad seems to outweigh the good. It is difficult but true to keep in mind: There are amazing people across this planet and of billions, mostly people who just want to enjoy their short lives..
