    Half of them have no shoes..

    I think it is Saudi..


    It does not matter that they are 3rd World Countries. Which Libya was not.....it was a gateway for both East and West.

    The Saud, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain.....the Sunni back Sunni. Then there is the Muslim Brotherhood. The Sunni Clerics out of Egypt. Just to name a few.

    I'm not trying to minimize ISIS' brutality, but in this particular neck of the woods, they blend in with the rest of the trees.

    Move westward and accomplish what exactly?


    The fact that there are multiple terrorist gangs vying for power undermines their ability to do much damage.
    Their internecine battles will keep them weak
    .

    Accomplish what they say they are trying to do. What they believe in.


    If you haven't noticed in Libya.....they are not fighting each other. As they are not in most other places. That's the MS Media playing with that BS propaganda put out by the terrorists and their backers.

    In fact we know they are working together in Syria. In Yemen.

    More Americans have been kidnapped and killed. Plus now they have called on the lone wolves that have the same common ground. A Hatred for Americans.

    So many bad actors, so little time, who should we attack?
    Damned if we do, damned if we don't.
    My next vacation destination will not be in the ME.

    Al Qaeda has joined them, not the other way around. The Taliban appears to have faded away and infused into ISIS.

    IS, according to the latest information I've seen, has militarily taken control of an area of land half the size of Iraq. They are threatening to take control of large parts of Syria. I am not up to speed on the latest, but I believe this is fairly accurate information.

    Given their brutal tactics, and evil actions, I believe they are a significant threat to the ME and far beyond that area.

    The one unifying force in the ME....hatred for America.
    Sunni and Shiite will both set aside their differences to attack us.
    Minimize their chances to hurt us as best we can.
    Let them decimate each other.

    For those who didn't know, although it appears that Obama has ended the use of torture by our government, the USA still uses renditions to have people tortured by others.
    So what do you think the impact of that would be, were it in the report?

    Yes ISIS is more of a threat than all but Iran.....as ISIS doesn't have the means to produce ballistic missiles.
