ISIS isn't the problem,they are the symptom
ISIS is a recurring paradigm.
Al Qaeda, Taliban, ISIS.
14 YRS of war and terrorism is spreading.
At the end of WWII war ended, at that time carpet bombing
of civilian populations was SOP, for both sides.
The intent behind bombing civilian populations
was to get the people to withdraw popular support for
Governments and end the war.
It worked the populations were so sick of war and death
there were no Nazi resistance groups.
In an effort to be more humane war has for the most part
abandoned carpet bombing of civilian populations in
favor of limiting collateral deaths.
Unfortunately this more humane approach may be fueling
terrorism, people become revenge terrorist.
Arab spring was a valiant effort to try something else as
terrorism wasn't effective method of change.
But it was squandered, didn't realize the support it needed
to become effective.
If there would have been 3 or 4 successful Arab springs
effective in making changes there would be no ISIS.
The world does not understand the terrorist paradigm.
They are so angry fathers will strap on a suicide bomb
and blow themselves up.
We are missing the point.
Killing terrorist is a stop gap measure.
It doesn't stop terrorism.
Islam is codependent partner.
The Islamic concept of Martyrs is faulty, Islam does not condone
suicide bombing of Mosques, innocents, market places or
Yet terrorist convince members to carry out these un-Islamic acts.
I suspect this is because Madrasas don't teach meaning of Quran
but teach memorization of Quran.
The continual complaint of terrorist for 14 years has been that
USA is at war with Islam.
I know better and discounted that complaint as its not true.
But truth is not the issue, "The impression, the concept is
True or not isn't the issue, terrorist believe USA is at war
with Islam. And terrorist SELL IT.
They sell it on Twitter, a world wide person to person
Shutting down Twitter ISIS accounts is a stop gap
as Anonymous is so fond of saying
"You can't kill an Idea."
But one can counter lies, expose propaganda,
explain and prove 'truths'.
Expose the message for what it is;
USA at War with Islam; A LIE.
They are not GOOD at it, and are amateurs.
Based on the number of supporters and average number
of life time of tweets, they post at least a Million tweets
before they get one lone wolf.
ISIS SUPPORTERS HAVE PUT OUT + 100 million tweets
46,000 supporters x lifetime tweets 2,200= 101,200,000 tweets.
Minimal impact for 100 million tweets.
Ask any advertizing person thats amateurish.
They throw massive number of tweets and hope some of
the BS sticks to the wall.
Social Media is a Western invention, and the terrorist are
using it against us.
And able to convince enough Muslims that USA is at war
against Islam to draw enough recruits to sustain themselves.
ISIS realized Twitter is where the hearts and minds are won.
They are using Twitter in ways most users are not aware of.
They use coded hash tags, to reach members looking to
connect with ISIS leadership.
We have the codes and got over 16,000 impressions using
the correct password hash tags, on just one tweet.
We have done many as 60,000 targeted ISIS impressions in a day.
ISIS is using other applications that use a tweet as a trigger for other
applications to spread ideology.
Americas response has been diminutive, or left to civilian operators.
The expertise is out there and operating successfully and
Response to the terrorist on twitter has been amateurish.
We can easily over power jahidies rhetoric.
Reverse the concept that America is at war with Islam.
EMPLOY ad agencies,
For all terrorist groups.
Ends much of the motivation for terrorism.
Terrorist in most all countries read twitter.
And finally actually reach some hearts
