Terrorist atrocities in Europe are on a rapid increase, many of which are claimed by, and in many cases at least found to be inspired by daesh/ISIL/ISIS. As their actual physical presence in Iraq and Syria continues to be degraded, their dystopian vision and aims seem now to be morphing into a more difficult to control form of asymmetric warfare within those countries that have actively been opposing it. There are a number of threads that cover both its activities, and recent actions within Europe, but it now seems, having tried to establish a Caliphate that is now shrinking, we will see a greater emphasis on what happens as some of its disciples now try to disperse back to where they came from. They have been assiduously preparing the ground, an extremely interesting talk by Lt. Gen Sir Graeme Lamb covered this in 2013... ...though fairly long it covered almost presciently what European Governments are now facing within their own borders, and the difficulties faced given the force multiplication for both good, and in daesh’s case for evil, by the internet and social media. Given the tensions created by the ongoing immigrant crisis in Europe, between cultures and religions, there presently exists a large capacity for them to exploit this and create major upheaval. To combat this, we in all probability, seeing a continuing increase in ‘Emergency powers’ by successive Governments, as the freedoms we enjoy facilitate their twisted agenda. Hopefully not as draconian as those presently being employed by Turkey.
