Time to up-armor your Tonka truck

scramble the Fisher-Price jets, and move Barbie to a secure location. Yes, it's come to this: the insurgents are threatening to behead... GI Joe.

Send in the little green army men!

UPDATE: It occurs to me we've just witnessed another "blogger moment," as I believe it was a military photo blog (OK, discussion board) that first noticed it. Of course the major blogs like Instapundit and Powerline quickly disseminated the link to tens of thousands of others, after which it eventually propagated to the MSM. After that, it just took the usual few hours for the brontasaurii to send the message from their heads to their tails to stop running what they thought (hoped?) was vicious jihadi propaganda but turned out to be merely another glaring example of their continuing slide into incompetent, gullible irrelevance.

My favorite slice of the farce was when a DU poster, after initially saying "Well we bombed them, what did we expect them to do?" later added an furious edit asking, with not the slightest hint of irony, "It's a FAKE?? What kind of SICK F*CK would do that??"

Yes, the people making the fake pictures are the sick ones, not the people actually cutting off heads. That's the self-described "reality-based community" in action.
