What ISIS Really Wants

The Atlantic has published a long, but readable analysis, on "What ISIS Really Wants." The bottom line: the West, including, apparently, most of our political and military leaders, has not taken ISIS seriously enough. They believe what they are saying. For example, with the establishment of a Caliphate, it becomes the duty of Muslims who agree with the interpretation of the Koran accepted by ISIS to come to the place where the Caliph resides. For another example, they believe that there is a sacred duty to take slaves.

Scary reading.
