RE: Does ISIS have a death wish?
An interesting article I recently read on this topic from The Atlantic.

The sub heading reads:

"The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it."

What ISIS Really Wants

"The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species." - Christopher Hitchens

"Remember kids, if you don't sin, then Jesus died for nothing. Have a great day!" - Ricky Gervais

They want to start the end times, so I would say they probably do have a death wish.

RE: Does ISIS have a death wish?
ISIS “IS” the result of militarily superior nations’ foreign policies. Amazingly, the U.S. public does not recognize their own (CIA) creation. Starting with Reagan’s Operation Cyclone, which consisted of an anti-Soviet operations that emphasized arming anyone rebelling against the Soviet Union, including the Afghanistan Mujahideen (Operation Cyclone). The Mujahideen who were semi-united during their successful war, splintered afterwards resulting in each mujahideen commander becoming warlords ruling over specific regions of Afghanistan. The first, Each commander set up his own checkpoints requiring commissions, killing innocent passers-by, or forcing people to work as slaves.

The Taliban brought order using a scorched earth policy, burning large regions of fertile ground occupied by groups who hold non-Taliban views. Massacres of Afghan civilians and the implementation of Sharia law (very sexist views of women). Foreigners (i.e. Osama Bin Laden) who went to Afghanistan to fight the Soviet Union held similar views as the Taliban, but wanted an ideology that included all the Islamic nations in the Middle-east and Asia. They all became Al-Qaeda, but the ones in Afghanistan are only focused on Afghanistan. As Osama bin Laden said, “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is first Islamic state where Sharia law rules the land.”

The U.S. provided weapons to Al-Qaeda in Iraq so they would invade Syria. Al-Qaeda turned into ISIS as they carved out control of northwestern Iraq and northeastern Syria. This explains why we tax payers paid 500 million dollars to train “four or five” Syrian fighters against ISIS. The world will now be able to compare U.S. foreign policy against Russia’s foreign policy. It appears that Russia is far more effective in fighting ISIS in Syria than the U.S. The French have already decided to work with the Russia after the recent attacks in Paris. Leaving the U.S. on the bench while the A team takes care of the Syrian problem.

ISIS believes that Afghanistan beat the Soviet Union because they followed Sharia law, and not because of foreign support. Gosh, one has to love the “f*ck ups ” who work in the CIA. The CIA is one of those institutions who can lie to their bosses, Congress, without receiving a felony perjury charge. Why would people who are more knowledgeable than the CIA work for/with them? The only accomplishment the CIA has achieved in the Middle-east is starting a blood feud that will last generations. The U.S. is a nation that needs an institution more advance than the keystone cops, to handle complex international situations. Not all situations can be achieved by the military force, and very few U.S. objectives will be achieved with the current toxic CIA. CIA is a loser organization that lies to their bosses; resulting in the U.S. becoming a loser because of incompetent foreign policy strategies. Even if Americans do not believe the previous narrative, many people in the outside of the U.S. do believe it (i.e. France).
