Former U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters, a Fox News strategic analyst, told Sean Hannity on Tuesday night that the video purportedly of a Jordanian pilot being burned alive by the Islamic State indicates that the terror organization is "having the the time of their lives" and is not acting out of desperation.
"It was a brilliant recruiting video," Peters told Hannity. "Those guys who burned that young man alive, they're having the time of their lives. This kind of violence is captivating, exhilarating, thrilling to these guys. It's never going to get better for them than this. They have power now. They can exert their will over others."
Then Peters offered this blunt assessment: “This was better than the best sex they’ve ever had and it's easier on the goats."
Peters also noted that the U.S. needs to "get serious" about the Islamic State threat and that President Obama's "false choice" between air power alone or hundreds of thousands of soldiers on the ground is "absolute bull."
Not to be outdone was former U.S. Rep. Allen West who led things off by saying of the Islamic State that "the only way that you can deal with savage, barbaric animals is to be tough and ruthless."
Peters' commentary begins just before the 2-minute mark:
