There is a lot of chest thumping at the diminished presence of ISIS in Iraq and Syria…..some, Trump included, are even going so far as to claim the ISIS is a dead organization.
I am not one of those people.
I have written numerous times that ISIS is diminished but not totally defeated….to me Southern Asia is looking like the next region that could suffer from the rise of ISIS….even Africa is part of the resurrection….and there is yet another area that could be in the ISIS game plan…..the Balkans.
So-called Islamic State has vowed to decapitate ‘infidels’ and kill Serbs, Croats and Muslim ‘traitors’ in the Balkans in a new threat to the region published in the Bosnian version of the jihadists’ magazine.
“No, we swear by Allah, we have not forgotten the Balkans,” the Bosnian version of ISIS’s magazine Rumiyah warned as the terror organisation issued a new threat to the region.
In an article entitled “The Balkans – Blood for Enemies, and Honey for Friends”, the terror group makes direct threats to Serbs and Croats over their roles in the Balkan wars, as well as to Muslim ‘traitors’ to the Islamic faith.
Now the question is…… will the US return to the Balkans militarily?
The 1990’s gave us the Balkans Wars of Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia….the US and NATO fought several wars in the region….is the Trump admin willing to return to the Balkans…..
Making the world a safer place….one war at a time.
