Washington Times on March 26, 2015, reported that the U.S. dropped gruesome pamphlets in Syria earlier this month that show Islamic State fighters putting recruits through a meat grinder, the Pentagon said. Excerpts below:

About 60,000 of the graphic leaflets were dropped March 16 over Ar-Raqqah, Syria, said Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman.

Under a sign that says “Daesh recruiting office,” the leaflet shows two Islamic State fighters with monster-like faces encouraging recruits to take a number to get in line to be put into a meat grinder, which also says Daesh, the local name for the terrorist group.

“The message of this leaflet is if you allow yourself to be recruited by Daesh, you will find yourself in a meat grinder,” Col. Warren said after showing reporters the image. “Not beneficial to your health.”

The leaflet, printed on a 4-by-8 inch piece of paper, was developed by the Military Information Support Office, Col. Warren said.
