Global iGuerilla Update

A Self Consuming Passion

Thursday, June 11, 2015

From the Thirty Years War, the French and Russian Revolutions, the rise of the Nazis and Iranian Revolution, fanatics have shared a tendency to self-destruct. It’s been Jacobins over Girondin and Stalinists over Trotskyites but today it the Thirty Years War again; all vs all.

• The Islamic State (IS) and Al Qaeda (AQ) are at war everywhere
• The Shia militias declared jihad against IS in Iraq
• AQ proxies declared jihad on IS proxies in Libya
• IS declared jihad on the Taliban in Afghanistan
• Hizballah is at war with IS on the Syria-Lebanon Border
• The Al Nusra Front is at war with IS in Syria
• IS and AQ are wooing an uncommitted Al Shabaab in Somalia
• The AQAP are at war with the Al Huthi in Yemen
• Shia vs Sunni, Persian vs Arab, Iranian vs Saudi…

This could take a while but it seems certain to end in exhaustion. There will either be a reformation or a new and virulent warlord.
