This reminds me of some book or movie, I forget which, maybe it was Orwell's 1984, where there was always a war. People didn't even know who the enemy was, it didn't matter, but in the background there were constant news reports of how "Our side is winning the war".
My assessment of ISIS threat to the US is that it's quite small in terms of ISIS being able to directly inflict any damage to anyone in the US.
The far greater threat to the US is the US political system itself. If we get another gunslinger in the White Hut who takes orders from the CFR, (Council on Foreign Relations), I can see the US doing far more damage to itself than ISIS ever dreamed of doing.

Yea. I've become the resident ATS bad guy because I point things like this out. I wasn't very popular during the Ebola scare either.
