How does ISIS do it?
How does ISIS overtake military bases and installations? Do they outnumber them? Are they using gorilla war tactics? Is their intelligence program better than the military's? Do the majority in that region support ISIS?

How are they doing it? Huh

Gorilla tactics?!

I'll give them points for innovation at least...

RE: How does ISIS do it?
So far their tactic for attacking hardened targets has been waves of suicide attackers to create openings and infiltration through the breaches. As they acquire heavier equipment, who knows.

Most of the opposing forces (ie, the Syrian and Iraqi armies) have pretty low morale and cohesion.

So far the Iraqis have mostly been able to retreat - and they have, because whatever they're nominally fighting for, they'd rather live.

The SAA bases in eastern Syria, it's a little different - although they might now realize that surrender isn't an option against ISIS, they're still stuck in isolated bases under siege.
(and sieges have only ever been a matter of time, for the last six thousand years...)

I just read a news story about how a seized laptop from the ISIS had plans to weaponize bubonic plague and use those weapons.

This world would be a lot better if no country had a military and there could be no war

You realise ISIS is not a national military and said national militaries are all that stand between them and wholesale slaughter.

Have you heard the word of the Prophet Molyneux (pbuh)?

It warms the cockles of my bitter, cynical heart to see that usage spread.

May your words be blessed.
