ISIS Declares War on Europe
According to news outlets today, ISIS has reportedly dispatched 400 fighters to wage war against Europe in new attacks. Though they appear to be losing some ground in Iraq and Syria, their network of operatives is alive and well across the world.
Police are searching for a man who was wearing a light colored jacket and hat that fled the scene of the attacks in Brussels. Officials stated that an ISIS bomb-maker was killed in the attacks, as well as two brothers who were believed to be the suicide bombers. Another man believed to be connected to the terrorists was also arrested in the sweeps by police.
But according to officials, it appears that the usual tactics of Daesh/ISIS have seriously changed. And with that change comes increased danger.
Fox News reported,
French speakers with links to North Africa, France and Belgium appear to be leading the units and are responsible for developing attack strategies in Europe, said a European security official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about briefing material. He is also familiar with interrogations of former fighters who have returned to Europe. Some were jailed after leaving IS while others were kicked out of the terror group. The fighters include Muslims and Muslim converts from all across Europe.
Fighters in the units are trained in battleground strategies, explosives, surveillance techniques and counter surveillance, the security official said.
“The difference is that in 2014, some of these IS fighters were only being given a couple weeks of training,” he said. “Now the strategy has changed. Special units have been set up. The training is longer. And the objective appears to no longer be killing as many people as possible but rather to have as many terror operations as possible, so the enemy is forced to spend more money or more in manpower. It’s more about the rhythm of terror operations now.”
And so it continues. Radical Islamists increase their strength while the world continues to placate them at every turn. We cannot reason or negotiate with them. We cannot give them all ‘jobs’ and have them disappear. Obama’s methods not only do not work, they have created a monster. It’s time that monster was put down for good.
