As Raqqa falls and ISIS collapses we must confront 3 serous risks: January 1 2016, at the might of ISIS power I wrote and predicted ISIS fall resulting in growth in international terror.
Now, as troops backed by the US are taking ISIS Capitol Raqqa there is a false sense of satisfaction! Why?
1. Elements of ISIS will continue to export terror across the world.
2. Many former ISIS terrorist have joined al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS). Expect bad news from them.
3. Hezbollah have grown so strong in the process and from a local Lebanon power with the support of Russia and Iran have effectively become a national terror threat and a direct threat to Israel.
It’s only a matter of time. Pay attention! What do we do to assure we in the US are not “surprised” in a few months with new international terror. ??
