Vashta Nerada Paris massacres Nov 13, 2015 (180* d) RE: Paris massacres Nov 13, 2015 16 Nov 15


The Month that ISIS Became a True Global Threat

They are expanding their range, seemingly, but it isn't all going their way.

It's also worth noting that the attacks come after a very bad week for ISIS on the battlefield. The group lost the northern Iraqi city of Sinjar to U.S.-backed Kurdish forces, cutting a supply route between the group's capital in Raqqa, Syria, and its Iraqi stronghold in Mosul. In western Syria, ISIS's year long siege on a key airbase was broken by Russian-backed Syrian troops. A drone strike also appears to have killed one of its best-known militants, the British executioner Mohammed Emwazi, aka "Jihadi John."

Angering Russia, the US, France, and others is going to generate a serious response.
