Description

ISIS poses a serious threat to America and the American way of life. Whether ISIS has the ability to target the United States currently or in the near future, the aspects which constitute the brutal terror organization and state-like characteristics make ISIS an inevitable threat that America will have to confront sooner or later. This study does not encompass or delve into the historical founding of ISIS; rather, this analysis seeks to explain the aspects of ISIS which cause it to be an expanding, resilient, and powerful threat in global politics, and in the end, to the United States. The current aspects of ISIS that contribute to their increasing and omnipresent threat are recruiting tactics and ability, the organizations financial ability, military capability and strength, state functionality, and ideological principles. Considering all of these facets, there are those who believe America should not become more involved or invested in the Middle East's problems, but when these characteristics are combined ISIS serves as a very serious threat to America, its national security, and its interests. The scope of this analysis does not intend to postulate policy solutions or recommendations, but to simply demonstrate the increased need for American involvement and policy change.
