Climate change and its relationship to tourism comes in two prongs. It is either a threat multiplier or a cause of conflict. Terrorism exists militarily, because one group wants to overthrow and existing resume and replace it. In l African countries the wars we see our wars over resources. The ethnicity parts of the confidence comes later, or transcendentally. It is because one group of people believe they are entitled to a scarce resource like water. If you look at the Middle East, the resource they are fighting for is oil, whose reserves have been depleted because of the excessive use of the substance. The excessive use of oil has led to a severe drought in the region. The instability in the oil markets and the droughts, created sectarian and unruly governments. The government's we're so inept that they were not able to provide for the basic needs of the citizens. Some militants saw this as a perversion of social order. So they established a new state centered on fundamental

So because there is no water to grow tomatoes they go on a holy jihad,sorry I just can't wrap my mind around that.

No. I'll be more clear if I wasn't. All wars are wars for resources. Unless you buy into the Samuel Huntington argument. But what history has proven, that all wars are war for one resource or another. Jihadists are no exception. Jihadists and terrorist attack their own government first so they can rule the state. That's what we saw with the Taliban in Afghanistan. The end goal of a terrorist organization is regime change. They want the regime change because of two reasons. 1. The previous machine was too and confident and did not divide the resources adequately. 2. Because of this, and the hoarding of wealth by government officials, jihadists see government as non-islamic. They want to reinstitute in Islamic government that redistributes the resources according to the Quran. They want a government that is totally based on the Quran.

Like I said, the link between terrorism and climate change is more prevalent in Africa. However it is universal, and it also is part of radical Islamic terrorism.

There are no resources to fight over in a jihad. There mission is to kill and convert infidels.

No, that is not the only mission of Jihad. The mission of ISIL is to establish a functioning caliphate. The resources are land and oil. They see all Muslims that aren't in ISIL as infidels. Their short term goal right now is to kill all Muslims that don't agree with them. Their long their goal is to create a government and bring the apocalypse.

You shouldn't call them Isil when you do that you are admitting to them that they have taken over land and are making progress.

Are you saying they haven't taken land? They have taken a lot of land. They control one third of Iraq and a half of Syria. Their affiliates stretch from Syria to Algeria, and from Nigeria to Sudan. According to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and the Secretary of Defense, they are contained tactically within the borders of Iraq and Syria, but they are not contained when it comes to them being able to export terrorism.

Saying ISIL is more appropriate than saying ISIS. Saying either is way more appropriate than say IS. But what is optimal is calling them Daesh

12/11/15 7:37 am

I wasn't saying they haven't taken land I'm saying we shouldn't admit that to them and why call them Daesh.
