Foreign Policy Assignment ISIS
By: Michael Dorn and Ray Gaither
ISIS – WHO ARE THEY?
POWER VACUUM – WHERE?
When ISIS wins more ground it gains territory. Every additional inch on the map produces an inflated sense of both the group’s own power and the credibility of its claim to be the presumptive leader. When a group is looked as a particularly successful group more people will want to join.
Factors that lead to this kind of group being formed are simple, if people don't like the way current things are then they will fight with everything in their power to change it right or wrong.
