The Pentagon has disclosed a gruesome leaflet it has dropped over Syria in its attempts to deter would be recruits from joining the Islamic State. UC Central Command has confirmed that a single U.S. Air Force F-15E fighter aircraft carrying a PDU-5B leaflet canister dropped 60,000 graphic anti-ISIS propaganda leaflets over Raqqa, Syria in an attempt to curb militant violence. The leaflet depicts a monstrous-looking member of the Islamic State militant group urging a frightened young man to step forward, as another militant shoves a man head-first through a meat grinder. A sign overhead says “Daesh Recruiting Office.”
