The recent beheading of the American, Foley, has invoked and stirred the Western powers. It's like a wake-up call, even though, the danger has been growing all along.Whether you choose to call it IS or ISIS, it is a satanic force. Some will claim that God has allowed this force to become the threat it is because in the End days, there is Armageddon, where the Middle East is its epicenter.

IS makes $3,000,000 a day from a variety of illegal sources. It seized $2 billion when Mosul fell and other cities from various banks. They are so well funded, it is unbelievable. According to their publications, they are not just satisfied with creating a Islamic State within Iraq, they have their sights on other areas of the world. Some analysts think they number not more than 10,000, others say, 20,000. They attract the discontented losers and try to recruit the young from age 15-25. But they have the momentum and unless they suffer setbacks, the threat will expand.

It seems only a very reluctant USA is willing to at least attack the most obvious ISIS targets, or the "sure bets", using drones and laser guided bombs. The war against ISIS is producing odd alliances, like the USA and Iran and Syria.

Over time, one can see how the biblical tie-in might evolve. As ISIS expands and events go their way, one can see how the the World powers and those regional powers might fight the "undeclared" war against ISIS, this could include Russia. One could see how the use of nuclear weapons by either side would elevate the war. Even if ISIS was defeated by World powers or regional powers (Iran, Saudi Arabia), the once allied nations might on religious beliefs turn on one another or focus on the destruction of Israel, which would force the American, French, British forces to defend Israel. Another possibility is that ISIS begins to attack Israel and Hezbollah\Hamas join in, as all want its destruction.

For the past several months, ISIS has been allow to grow rapidly. Their terror precedes their arrival. If you are unaware what the Allies did as Hitler came to power and then invaded Austria, Poland, France and seized them, just know nothing was done. Just a lot of talking, trying to make peace with Hitler, and praying to God he would stop. Hitler did not. He conquered North Africa, Italy, Greece, and the Ukraine. When Hitler invaded Russia, only the Russians fought them The point is, Hitler never wanted to make peace, he wanted territory for his "Greater Germany".

ISIS is identical but for different reasons. There is NO negotiating with a Hitler or ISIS. This is where only ruthless force will stop them. They have already taunted the West and declared war. Tiptoeing around the issue simply allows ISIS to grow and succeed because of the lack of opposition.

Obama is having a difficult time believing he cannot negotiate and reason with ISIS. Maybe he needs to read, "Mein Kampf" by Adolph Hilter. I think ISIS leaders have. If the al-Qaeda leadership kicked the ISIS leaders out for their very radical, extreme, measures, that should speak volumes.

This is a battle between good and evil.

      It is not a wake up call to veterans. We know they are there. We also know that we can't have a friendly dialogue with them to end this. They need to die. That is the only thing that will stop them.

      Thanks for the input and I agree 100%. It has been 90 years since there was a Caliphate. Obama should not think he can reason and negotiate with them. Wrong mindset.

      Have you noticed in the news that some are calling them ISIS and others including Obama are calling them ISIL? The difference is ISIS takes into account Iraq and Syria. ISIL takes into account a territory far greater than simply Iraq and Syria. The L in ISIL stands for Levant. The Levant today consists of the island of Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey. Your map actually shows the area. That area is very similar to the Ottoman Empire.

      I believe that is really what this is about. The Sunnis want to return the land to what use to be the Ottoman empire before WWI. After WWI, the British and the French carved up the mid-east without any regard for ethnicity and culture. ISIL uses the word Caliphate, which is the name given to whomever was the leader of the Ottoman Empire at any given time.

      The difference between ISIL and all the other terrorist organizations is they want to control land mass, the way it was done in WWI and WWII. That's why they invaded Iraq. As soon as Obama started air strikes, they had to switch their tactics to hiding during the day and attacking at night Therefore, denying them control of the land mass. It is interesting to see how this is going to unfold. Thanks for the article, up and useful.
