Only way for humans to find peace with eachother is when we find a bigger threat. *patiently waiting for the Covenant to invade*

Well, climate change may cause a huge threat in the future, so maybe that'll finally force us to unite?



So long as there are political, economic and religious issues, there will always be conflict and war through out the world.



Groups like ISIS don't last more than a few years. The group starts out with a bunch of hardcore fanatics who truly believe in everything they preach. Then a second wave of recruits come along who still believe what the first group believes in, but maybe not quite as much. Then you get a third and fourth wave of recruits who happen to be lonely and depressed, saw ISIS on tv and thought it would be awesome. They're less about the fanatical beliefs more about wearing those cool looking black outfits, getting to show off with a big gun, raping as many women as they want and getting paid for all of that. They see themselves as rockstars who will cut off someone's head for listening to rock music. These wannabe rockstars will often put up less of a fight, be more willing to surrender and will try to get out of fighting altogether.

Al Queda on the other hand is still lingering around mostly because the very people who are supposed to be hunting them down keep giving them money and weapons so they can kill other terrorists. Go figure.

You first have to convince some of the population that it's even real.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Then what? We hold hands and sing kumbaya mi lord?



Hunting Season is done...

Interesting change of events, a supposed chemical gas attack occurred with dozens dead, media blames Assad for it - strange timing now that ISIS is in decline.

Fun fact, left-wing politifact said that the Obama-admin had successfully removed chemical weapons from Syria:

McCain is already arguing for a war, pardon a liberation of Syria from Assad - a last attempt to get the US into major war with Russia over Syria? Remember the "they took the babies out of the incubators" that got us into Iraq?

ISIS has been on a constant decline for two years now, and it will only make them more radical until they are dispersed. It will only lead to new terror cells forming though, but will hopefully cause a temporary break in terror attacks.



Was reading about the attack by isis in Egypt and how people believe ISIS is still expanding but at the same time moving to the West (Egypt) apparantly they have an easy time recruiting people in that region.






Two important things happened recently, the caliphate will not be much longer.

Iraqi forces enter Mosul mosque where Isis declared caliphate
Iraqi forces close to seizing control of Great Mosque of al-Nuri, where Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi proclaimed himself Isis leader three years ago

Russia's Foreign Ministry has said there is a high degree of certainty that Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.
