The Islamic State militant group is no longer a terrorist group, but rather has morphed into a "terrorist army," the French minister of defence said Monday.Here.
Jean-Yves Le Drian, speaking at the Pentagon, said that change means ISIL has to be fought on multiple fronts.
ISIL is often used as acronym for the Islamic State group.
"It is no longer a terrorist group. It has become a terrorist army, which has the capability to act as a classical army — they have demonstrated it — but also to have operations in urban areas and terroristic operations. They can do all three at the same time."
We're getting more truth from European defense officials about the current state of play with ISIS than we're getting from the White HOuse and Pentagon.
There really should be a rule....Never attempt to implement a strategy if you're worried more about your legacy than defeating the enemy.
