Let’s get this straight from the outset: ISIS will never be a global power, and the people running the organization and, more important, the ones financing it are surely aware of that fact.
As always, the ISIS situation is about money, in my opinion — and all of my thoughts here are my opinion. There are people on both sides making money off of this coalition battle with ISIS. Follow the money trail, if you can . . .
And, yes, there will be continued terrorist attacks by young idealists who have been brainwashed by the organization. Not by the real fighters in ISIS, who are paid mercenaries. The terrorist attacks will be committed by dimwitted suckers.
ISIS needs to commit more terrorist attacks abroad because they are largely stalled in their so-called expansionist plans in Syria. The West has contained them. But they need to keep up the fear factor, to make countries keep dropping bombs on desert spaces . . . there’s a lot of money to be made in the munitions business.
For an idea of which organizations and countries might be supporting the ISIS money-making mission, look at who isn’t being attacked by terrorists.
I’m not going to fingerpoint, except to say that Islamic interests hold a lot of real estate in the West. The last thing ISIS wants to do is upset those economic applecarts. Despite all its bull manure about the evils of materialism, Islamic countries and ISIS could not survive without the West’s commercialism.
It’s a dog feed dog world . . .
