    Default Responding to ISIS & Terrorism under President Trump

    Moderators Note

    A new thread as President Trump may pursue ISIS / Daesh differently. So some posts from 2017 will be moved here.

    Old threads will be closed. The main threads were:

    1) Beyond the frontline: watching ISIS
    With 220 posts and 142k views.

    2) ISIS: an essential reading collection
    With 20 posts and 47.7k views.

    3) Foreign fighters in Iraq & Syria
    With 39 posts and 24k views.

    Direct combat with ISIS appears in the current Iraq and Syrian war threads. A few other threads exist and are not suitable for merging:

    a) Iraq: Out of the desert into Mosul (closed)

    b) A hundred SWJ Blog entries (ends)

    A short commentary by RUSI's Rafaello Pantucci, with a sub-title:
    In retreat across Syria and Iraq, will the newer terror group emulate the strategy honed by al-Qaeda?

    Default Media weapons [can] actually be more potent than atomic bombs

    Charlie Winter under the auspices of ICSR @ Kings War Studies is the author of a report 'Media Jihad: The Islamic State's Doctrine for Information Warfare'.

    One passage:
    The King’s College report draws many of its conclusions from an Islamic State propaganda guidebook that surfaced online last year. Called “Media Operative, You Are a Mujahid, Too,” the booklet equates propaganda teams with armed operatives in their importance to the terrorist group and provides guidance on how to #develop messages that exploit mainstream media coverage and advance the organization’s ideology.

    “Media weapons [can] actually be more potent than atomic bombs,” one passage proclaims, according to the King’s College report.
    Link to article and the report is within:http://us14.campaign-archive1.com/?u...5&e=dd94a5c57b
