ISIS, ¿Imminent Demise?

Reader comment on item: ISIS' Imminent Demise

Submitted by Guillermo Trueba (United States), Jan 15, 2016 at 13:16

Mr. Pipes,

In regard of your article, ISIS Imminent demise, I took the freedom of attaching my glimpse.

In the article you highlight as an own condemn ISIS actions towards Europe and western countries, remarking that "Friendless and despised, its every success shortens its life". I think that ISIS does not need, nor wants any alliance, thus, it tends to behave just the way we have seen lately. I will open the ponder to a unique issue that ISIS has on its favour, considering the mixture of identities existing in Europe and the huge trend of nihilism in its young ones. Making of this identity hesitation its core weapon , which of course makes such a huge difference with other terrorist groups and puts it into a certain hierarchical spot in the international map.

I also do not get some of your points, for example your comparision in between ISIS and the Nazi Germany ? Or when you refer yourself on ISIS arose as abrutp ? I would love to dig a bit deeper into those points and with all the respect that you deserve from me I really do not find the point on bringing out the last paragraph you wrote regarding Iranians weapons.

Best regards for you and I hope you take this whole comentary to encourage into a broader writting so that your readers get the shape of your ponders.
