Deconstructing one of the biggest ISIS myths…
A plethora of mythology has been spun in the US media about ISIS “controls large parts of the Middle East”, when in reality they do not. This highly inflatable concept is easy to sell to US audiences who struggle to find Syria on a map. There are areas in Iraq and Syria which are unstable, and smaller areas yet, which are experiencing intense fighting, but ISIS does not control “large areas” of the region.
When you knock down that first domino, then other dominoes fall with it, like the myth of “ISIS maintains a vast network of supply lines in the region.” Again, more myth-making generated by a typically over-exaggerating mainstream media – designed to support the original thesis. There are terrorist units spread out in an array of isolated pockets in Syria and Iraq, so with that being the case, what would be the easiest way to deliver supplies to troops in the field? It turns out that the answer is much simpler than the overblown fish story our media is selling us….
