I think isis wants to rule the entire Middle East..
It's their actions that make them evil..
But period, if the government doesn't make big enough mistakes to shift public opinion, then insurgencies lose.. they remain the barbarians at the
gates, rather than Robin Hood fighting the evil monarchy..
Firing for your cause not killing women and children are new..
insurgencies are not new..
Ya gotta ask your self why the effort??
Because some people you will never meet on the opposite side of the planet are free???
Or to establish your own empire that you get to rule the way you see fit???
All wars and most of violence period is a power play.. when concerning nation states it is always about who gets to be in charge.
Isis wants to be in charge of the Middle East and so do we.
So to oust the present leadership that is semi friendly to the west , they attack the west..
The west makes demands no soverign nation would agree to , then invades..
At that point the local population has no faith in the old leadership and every civilian casualty is makes the insurgency look like the good guys...as
the west are invaders off the jump.
After that it is just a math thing until the authorities have killed more civilians than you have..
Then you install a pro you administration and sucessful insurgency, now your freedom fighters not terrorists.
