is beyond anything that we’ve seen So we must prepare for everything” Secretary of State John Kerry doesn’t seem to share the Pentagon chief’s foreboding given how ISIS fighters scattered “the minute we hit them” as they tried to take the Kurdish city of Erbil in northern Iraq “These guys are not 10 ft tall Theyre not as disciplined as everybody thinks” Kerry said on Sept 5 “Theyre not as organized as everybody thinks” So who’s right To be sure nothing grabs attention like the barbaric series of videotaped ISIS beheadings of Westerners which continued this weekend with the release of footage of the murder of British aid worker David Haines Such horrors generate a visceral bloodlust and they have achieved their goal: President Obama declared last week that the US military and its allies are determined to destroy ISIS “We have countries in this [Middle East] region countries outside of this region in addition to the United States all of whom are prepared to engage in military assistance in actual strikes if that is what is required" Kerry said Sunday on CBSs Face the Nation There’s a parallel to al-Qaeda here Both Sunni groups leapt to prominence only after attacking the West with its own weapons Al-Qaeda did it with airliners; ISIS has done it with the intrepid journalists and aid workers they captured and then murdered Their chosen tools highlight how impotent they actually are That became even clearer last week when the Pentagon released its first comprehensive accounting of the ISIS targets it has hit in its month-long series of more than 150 air strikes The single largest category 88 of 212 individual targets or 42% is “armed vehicles” Not “armored vehicles” like a tank or personnel carrier but civilian pickups with machine guns mounted in the rear A pair of tanks and assorted other armor accounts for a scant 7% of the targets Roughly 10% are antiaircraft artillery and locations described as “IED Emplacements Mortar Positions [and] Machine Gun Locations” The “facilities” on Central Command’s hit list include “Fighting Positions Checkpoints [and] Observation Posts” This is not an arsenal but a ragtag collection including gear the US supplied to the Iraqi army which ISIS seized after driving Iraqi forces from Mosul (the US has attacked 37 ISIS Humvees built in Mishawaka Ind) Of course foes don’t need huge and costly weapons to be effective The 9/11 hijackers murdered over 3000 armed with nothing more than $2 box cutters But they did that by exploiting yawning vulnerabilities in commercial-aviation security The terrorists’ caginess must be trumped by wily thinking by the US and its allies a strategy in which air strikes can only play a supporting role Paltry gear shouldn’t been viewed as evidence of ISIS’ inherent weakness It is waging war on a far broader battlefield than that being attacked by US warplanes That means it cannot be defeated by military means alone Until the underlying causes for ISIS’s rise the anti-Sunni governments in Iraq and Syria chief among them are dealt with ISIS will pose a real threat to the civilized world But it’s also important to realize that ISIS has succeeded only where it has been unopposed Its proclaimed state is in the middle of one of the world’s most-heavily-armed regions and it has shown little ability or desire to challenge a motivated military force They say nature abhors a vacuum So do terrorists judging by the CIA’s assessment Thursday that ISIS has grown from 10000 to as many as 31500 fighters over the summer owing in no small part to its military success

that keep playing like a broken record try "labeling" them Siegel suggests giving the thought a funny name that trivializes it: Oh that "its not going to work out" tape is playing in my head again Via The Mindfulness Solution: Everyday Practices for Everyday Problems: When the thoughts arise label them silently before letting them go You dont need very many categories You might choose labels such as "planning" "doubting" "judging" "fantasizing" obsessing" or "criticizing" The particular labels arent crucial; what matters is using them to avoid being captured by stories or repetitive tapes Once you label a thought gently bring your attention back to the breath If you find that your attention is repeatedly carried away by particular stories try making up a humorous label for them Give these greatest hits their own names such as your "I blew it again" tape "I cant get no respect" tape "I never get what I want" tape and so on Sound like silly hippie nonsense Well you know those worries

his fans and readers he pops in threads from time to time so he’s planning to do one AMA every month until the release of the Paper Towns the second film adaptation of one his novels Here are four things we learned from his first session: If he had to choose between video blogging on YouTube with his brother Hank and turning his books into movies the choice is clear: If I had to pick between YouTube and movies I would pick YouTube This would be a financially counterintuitive choice for sure but I love online video and love working with my brother Don’t tell my brother I said that though There are three main reasons he likes writing for and about teenagers: [1] They’re experiencing so much stuff for the first time–love and loss and grief and individual sovereignty and driving cars and in the case of nonredditors sex Because those experiences are new they are extremely intense and it allows me to think about that stuff in a heightened way that doesn’t need to be cut by irony […] 2 Teens are extremely intellectually curious and I love the straightforward way they consider the biggest questions […] 3 Publishing as a YA author also has many many benefits A line in his book Looking for Alaska was inspired by his wife: My wife and I went to high school in Alabama together but we did not know each other in high school Years later we became reacquainted in Chicago where we were both living The first time we had dinner together I told her a story from high school about sitting on a porch swing and thinking about all the things that might happen to me and how I never thought I’d end up in Chicago across a table from Sarah Urist And she said “Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia” which I put in my book Looking for Alaska He worries Paper Towns newcomers who see the trailer might think the movie reinforces the Manic Pixie Dream Girl myth instead of challenging it: I’m not in control of the marketing of the movie obviously and I might market it a little differently but I also understand that you have to set people up with a world they think they know if you’re going to point out what is demented and evil about that world That’s what the book (hopefully) does and what the movie (hopefully) does But that’s hard to do in a trailer for a movie because you don’t want the trailer to tell the whole story You don’t want the trailer to deliver the

yesterday the country’s ambassador to the United States confirmed Tuesday “They hit the outer perimeter of the shrine and some people were killed” the ambassador Lukman Faily said in response to a question from TIME about Samarra’s al-Askari mosque where a 2006 attack was a catalyst for nationwide sectarian civil war US and Iraqi officials are extremely worried that a successful ISIS attack on the shrine commonly known as the Golden Dome mosque could re-inflame sectarian rage Faily did not say whether the shrine’s famous golden dome which was blown up by Sunni jihadists in 2006 and later rebuilt was damaged as unconfirmed reports suggest But he insisted that ISIS which reportedly overran much of Samarra in mid-June no longer holds territory within the city “It was a hit-and-run situation” he said The shrine itself is heavily guarded by Iraqi forces along with foreign fighters who consider it a sacred duty to defend Iraq’s holy sites from Sunni vandals One of those reportedly killed in fighting at the shrine last month for instance was Pakistani man studying in Iraq who volunteered for its defense He is now memorialized as a Shi’ite martyr Six more people are reported to have been killed by Monday’s mortar attack Samarra is about 60 miles north of Baghdad and 30 miles south of Tikrit the site of intense fighting between Iraqi government forces and ISIS fighters who seized the city where former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was born earlier this month Faily said that ISIS no longer controls central Tikrit but said countless buildings including homes and places of worship had been booby-trapped and would take time to clear Speaking before an audience at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington Faily also said it is “likely” that Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki will retain his job He added: “Is it certain Nothing is certain” Faily said Iraq’s purchase of Russian aircraft amid complaints from Baghdad about slow delivery of American F-16s isn’t a sign of a fraying alliance with Washington “Our countries are forever tied together because of the lives we lost and the treasure we spent in the past decade in the fight against terrorism” he said For more on the Golden Dome shrine and what its fate could mean for Iraq click here Contact us at [email protected] suffered a national outage of its high-speed LTE wireless service
