I much AGREE WITH YOU ON THAT SCORE.
ISIS can make up in religious fervor for a lot of fire power and training on the part of a lot of other forces.
Besides . . . the rabidly fundamentalists in the region seem to be able to recruit and throw young souls into the fray with great frequency and numbers.
Unfortuneatly most of those that get recruited are undereducated kids who are fed a bunch of lies and propaganda so that they will go out and die for the corrupt bastards ..
Doubt it will end untill people start recieving better educations and learn to think for themselves rather than be controlled by those with agendas ..

ISIS or ISIL or Daesh or whatever the hell it is they call themselves are a bunch of paid terrorists sponsored by the US/UK/Israel/Saudis and Qataris...They have been created to counter the fast growing influence of Iran in the region and by forming a Sunni alliance between Iraq ,Syria,UAE and perhaps Saudi Arabia they hope to establish a sunni power house...
But what Saudis are failing to understand is that the whole point is to topple their own old rusty kingdom and replace it with something more up beat and trendy!
The elites do not like the people of Saudi Arabia to do this themselves because then they might elect a legitimate democratic government voted by the majority of the people and according to the elites that is not good for the world!...
But if Isis does that then the other players come to Saudi peoples rescue,get the terrorists out in about lets say a couple of hours and then instal whatever puppet they like to rule the super rich oil Arabia.That way they get rid of a bunch of animal terrorists plus they get their claws into the richest peace of land on the planet,,, not bad eh!,,two birds one stone....Got to give them some credit whoever ''they'' are.
