By MATT KANE Posted May 05, 2019 11:01:10While we’re talking about a new wave in the West, it’s worth looking at the other side of the coin, and that’s the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
While ISIS is a relatively new phenomenon in the region, it has already created a massive ripple effect.
In some cases, it is a more potent force than ISIS.
ISIS is far more aggressive and deadly than it was even a few years ago, when the Islamic extremist group was a tiny fringe movement with only a few thousand members in Iraq.
In the short term, ISIS has a clear and present threat to Western interests, including the US, which has launched airstrikes against the group in Syria and Iraq.
ISIS has also taken over large swaths of territory in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
But in the long term, this new group could pose a significant threat to the West.
The rise of ISIS has sparked a new era in terrorism, as it’s now more dangerous to carry out attacks in the United States than in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan, according to a study by the RAND Corporation.
In fact, a lot of Americans are still afraid of the threat of ISIS, even as they are taking the steps necessary to prevent attacks in their home countries.
This is due to the fact that the U.S. government has spent a lot more time trying to limit the spread of ISIS than it has to prevent it.
The RAND study found that, at least for now, the U .
S. is “far from a fully developed state of security.”
The rise in ISIS could be traced back to the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL), the group that emerged in 2014 and declared itself a caliphate in the country.
In that caliphate, ISIL established an official branch in Iraq called the Islamic Front.
In 2014, ISIL was able to seize control of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, and was able “to create a sense of self-confidence,” according to the RAND study.
It’s also worth noting that the group did not exist before 2014, when it emerged from its caliphate in 2014.
But it wasn’t until 2016, when ISIS took over large swathes of territory across Iraq and took over Mosul, that ISIL had the ability to create the “capacity for a sustained and coordinated effort to strike against targets in Iraq.”
According to the study, “the potential for a future major attack by ISIS could have catastrophic consequences.”
The study found, “there are many risks that are yet to be fully understood, such as the potential for the creation of a buffer zone around Mosul.”
This is a buffer that will keep ISIL forces in place, but will also allow them to move around the country, including into areas where there are still US-trained Iraqi forces, according the study.
In terms of military power, the study found ISIL has “the ability to threaten US interests and the global security environment.”
The researchers also found that ISIL’s use of social media is “very effective in facilitating its recruitment and use of fighters.”
The study also found ISIL uses social media to recruit, train, and “propagate its ideology, messages, and message to the local population.”
In addition, the researchers found that “the group has been able to use social media and other forms of online communication to recruit and indoctrinate individuals for its terrorist activities, including its ability to recruit Westerners and individuals from the West.”
What the study also noted is that ISIL “has also been able, through its own online social media accounts, to reach out to Westerners in an attempt to recruit them to its cause.”
It’s worth noting, too, that, in a number of ways, ISIL has already done a lot to build itself up as a terrorist organization.
It has been known to kidnap Westerners, and its fighters have been known, in fact, to be members of the British-based Islamic State of Northern Iraq.ISIS has also established a very strong network of “disciplined fighters,” or “martyrs,” who are willing to do anything to defend the group.
These “martyrdom” groups have been active in Iraq for several years.
The RAND researchers found, for example, that ISIS fighters who participated in the group’s 2014 military campaign in Iraq have been able “successfully participated in operations against the Iraqi security forces.”
This is a problem that ISIL faces in the short-term, but it is also one that can be overcome.
“A number of ISIS commanders and fighters have gone to Europe or elsewhere to fight against the U
