I think the time to complain about ISIS is past, if you didn't complain when they killed those unarmed Syrian soldiers then when they are doing it to civilians (Christians especially) then the world falls for a lie and if they are the body of the snake then 'you know who' will be the one to take care of the head.
This little change in the music will have the usual suspects here wondering who they should be sheering for. If you missed the opener, Syria using Russian hardware was the first to show the snakes body is as fragile as anybody else and perhaps even more so as they were always destined for a knife in the back from, . . . wait for it, . . . their backers.
"What is it and what do members want?
ISIS is a group of Sunni jihadists led by 43-year-old Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the nom de guerre
of Awwad Ibrahim al-Badri al-Samarri."
"Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi “took intensive military training for a whole year in the hands of Mossad, besides courses in theology and the art of speech,” the documents explain, according to Gulf Daily News
, a Bahrainian source."
The video at the link explains when he was 'released' and that can be equaled to 'inserted', something like the FBI informant in their various 'stings'.
"How did the group emerge?
The roots of ISIS are in Iraq, but the group was greatly influenced by its experiences fighting in Syria, says Kamran Bokhari, vice-president of Middle Eastern and South Asian affairs for the geopolitical intelligence firm Stratfor.
ISIS's etymology can be traced to al-Qaeda in Iraq, which arose in response to the U.S. invasion in 2003. The group was active in the insurgency in Iraq, but when civil war broke out along sectarian lines in Syria in 2011, many ISIS members crossed the border to fight with other al-Qaeda-affiliated groups against the Shia Alawite regime of Syria's President Bashar al-Assad."
"Is it a part of al-Qaeda?
No. That's because while ISIS was fighting under the auspices of al-Qaeda in Syria, Baghdadi clashed with Ayman al-Zawahiri, the reclusive head of al-Qaeda, over strategy.
When the Syrian war broke out, Baghdadi sent an envoy to create the al-Nusra Front, which became the main Sunni jihadist group fighting the Shia regime of Assad. Zawahiri became angered, however, when Baghdadi tried to merge the al Nusra Front with ISIS, says Jabeur Fathally, a Middle East expert at the University of Ottawa.
ISIS ultimately split from al-Qaeda because Baghdadi's group had a different goal in mind: capturing swaths of territory to establish a caliphate, or Islamic state."
Killing the Syrian moderates in the process and with a foreign fighters they leave when the govt is toppled and the West has free reign to install the whole govt to their liking. In Syria it would be based how Bahrain is currently run and in Iraq it is showing the 'public' that the govt is in control only if ISIS wants them to be, over taking any town and killing a group of non-muslims can be taken as a warning to the 'local Muslims'. The finer details can be had by looking at Afghanistan after the USSR pulled out and when the Taliban were in Texas for pipeline talks.
"How is ISIS funded?
ISIS's funding is "a combination of outside private donations and domestically generated revenue in areas that they control," says Rex Brynen, a political science professor at Montreal's McGill University.
The group's biggest patrons are in the Gulf states, says Fathally.
"A large part of their financing comes from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, but it's not from official institutions, but from private wealthy people," he said.
The group is also enriching itself every time it conquers territory. Earlier this month, ISIS members reportedly looted $450-million from a bank in Mosul and helped themselves to military equipment left behind by members of the fleeing Iraqi army."
If it wasn't for good luck they would have no luck at all. CAI/MOSSAD are the 'relatives with deep pockets', Saudi is there so the buck stops at them at the ICC.
"How much support does the ISIS get from regular Iraqis?
While much of the world has been surprised by the speed with which the ISIS has been able to take over Iraqi cities, "this could not happen without local support," says Henry Habib, professor emeritus of political science at Montreal's Concordia University.
He says that the group has been able to take advantage of Sunni outrage with the Shia-led government of Nouri al-Maliki.
"The failure of the Iraqi government in including the Sunnis and giving them positions in the government and so on and so forth has [had] a direct effect" on the ISIS's strategic success, Habib says."
