 File under: Islamic State 

#1 IIRC CNN > US SecState JOHN KERRY claims that the US-led Coalitiojn effort has forced the ISIS to seriously alter or change its tactics.

The above being said, OTOH by most accounts the ISIS/ISL has had little difficulty in recruiting new fighters to replace its losses.

#2 Seems to me Islam is eating its seed corn, like the west is, and right now the race is to the bottom.

#3 The end? Depends on how badly Obama screws up the attempts to eradicate ISIS by regional powers, instead of "degrade" it like Obama wants.

#6 As TOPIX + WORLD NEWS Artics describe, the ISIS/ISIL is still around or exists only because the US-Allies or Great Powers are allowing it to exist, i.e. are NOT hitting the ISIS/ISL wid the full force of their MilPol or Geopol Power-n-Resources.
