ISIS Objective Not to Kill Westerners, but Drive them From Mideast: Margolis

Eric Margolis:

Recent attacks by ISIS sympathizers in Paris, London and San Bernardino, California, are not random acts of mindless violence and gory atrocities.

Far from it, they are part of a well-developed strategy by the Islamic State, or ISIS, to draw the western powers into a far larger war in the Mideast.

They are drawing inspiration from the defeats of the Anglo-British army of Hicks Pasha in the Sudan in 1883 that was lured up the Nile then ambushed and swamped by 300,000 Dervish and tribal warriors. And by the defeat in Afghanistan of the British at Maiwand in the second Anglo-Afghan War of 1880.

The objective of ISIS and other anti-western groups is not to kill Americans, Britons and French, as many foolishly believe, but to drive the western Great Powers out of their hold over the Mideast and Muslim world.

Demagogic western leaders like Marine le Pen, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Hillary Clinton who call for more attacks on the Muslim world are falling right into the trap laid by ISIS.

Well, they aren’t falling into the trap.  As one author recently noted, they won’t be getting within 10 thousand miles of ISIS.  They are too clever and rich for that.  They will be sending kids mostly swept up from poor areas of their nations.

Another interesting point from Margolis: US air power is “the modern equivalent of the British Empire’s Royal Navy.”  Without this superior technology allowing the US to brutally dominate the region, we would not be having these discussions.  There would have been no attacks in London, Paris, and San Bernardino.

    what am i missing in this basically idiotic article?
    “The objective of ISIS and other anti-western groups is not
    to kill Americans, Britons and French, as many foolishly believe, but to
    drive the western Great Powers out of their hold over the Mideast and
    Muslim world.”

    go to http://www.zerohedge.com (or a similar site, or just google) tip in “ISIS” into the search box and browse the articles. someone doesn’t know what they are talking about. i suspect award winning, internationally recognized e margolis is not of this world.

    “Demagogic western leaders like Marine le Pen, Donald Trump,
    Ted Cruz, and Hillary Clinton who call for more attacks on the Muslim
    world are falling right into the trap laid by ISIS.”

    demagogic western leaders like obummer, cumeround, mutti merkel, msr. hollandaise and the associated lackeys of the mccain neo-con crowd seem to be missing from the list that the award winning e. margolis has penned. where is this man’s pride as an accurate journalist gone?

    “Another interesting point from Margolis: US air power is “the modern equivalent of the British Empire’s Royal Navy.”

    if he is talking about today’s british navy he is correct.
    if he is talking about yesterday’s british navy he is wrong. lol

    the u.s. air force is great at hitting hospitals, schools, civilian infrastructure. they seem not to be able to distinguish an oil tanker from a sand dune. but wait the vaunted F35 will be changing all of that …as soon as they can get it to fly and then there is the matter of a suitable cannon…and the computer software…and the disoriented pilots and, and…

    margolis is a schill it seems. a product of msm
    give this guy another award and send him out to pasture.

    That’s odd. With the made-for-CNN videos of ISIS appearing regularly (while other problems are ignored) for more than a year (to seemingly lay a “groundwork of fear”) and the fact that Obama said during a 60 Minutes interview that he was using ISIS as leverage against Iraq during negotiations, I thought the objective of ISIS was pretty clearly something else.

    The terrorist attacks in Paris, London and San Bernardino, California had nothing to do with ISIS. Those were committed by CIA-Mossad agents just like they created ISIS.
    Margolis does have a point though, ISIS is driving Muslim and Christian natives out of their ancestral lands to make space for more Jewish immigrants to fulfill Zionists’ dream of Eretez Yisrael (Greater Israel).
