** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/index.cgi?id=206886827770 King Abdullah II]] Current ruler of Jordan and career military leader. During a visit to Washington, the King found out that ISIS had brutally executed a captured Jordanian pilot. He immediately launched into Creator/ClintEastwood's revenge speech from ''Film/Unforgiven'', and launched an ongoing series of revenge attacks on ISIS. He reportedly flew the lead aircraft on the first mission (which Jordan has officially denied).
