The ISIS ideology is spreading fast on social media, ' the new machine to recruit militants.'

The Islamic State (IS), formerly known as ISIS or the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq or ISIS, is expanding its recruitment on social media in the Philippines.

On July 23, a video of senior Abu Sayyaf leader Isnilon Hapilon along with masked men was posted on YouTube. Hapilon carries a reward of up to $5 million from the US Rewards for Justice Program. He was indicted in the District of Columbia for “terrorist acts against United States nationals and other foreign nationals.” The FBI says he was “the deputy or second in command for the foreign terrorist organization, the Abu Sayyaf.”

and we just pulled out all our ‘special operators ‘ and trainers that we had in the P.I. for years .

extremely challenging jungles in the southern P.I have sheltered insurgencies and insurrectionists since the times
of Spanish dominion .

Abu Sayaf is a particularly nasty and perverted version of that same smell .
As in Iraq and Afghanistan , America cannot just ‘train’ indigenous troops and expect that to be enough . We need to have a world wide rad-muz hunting force that spare nothing in killing off as many as possible . Lead from the front and leave victory in our wake .

Abu Sayaf is also responsible for the 1989 murder of Colonel Nick Rowe. Though our folks may have taken some names of the roll, “Never Forget” demands that Abu Sayaf members never experience a peaceful night.

if Abu Sayaf has made bay'at to the Caliph, it facilitates towards Indonesia. Look to Lashkar-e-Tayyiba in Jammu and Kashmir soon for the Indian subcontinent.

Caliph Ibrahim and his inner circle do not waste time on Honey Boo Boo or cat pictures on Facebook. They want the world, and at this stage I'd judge their current odds as better than not.

Actually, the Communist New People’s Army killed Col. Rowe.
