Uear 13- Articles on ISIS

Following our discussion of ISIS and their recent actions in Paris, Beirut and Sinai, these are the articles I made reference to:

What ISIS really wants – This is free to access from The Atlantic and provides a very interesting analysis of the group.

The Foreign Affairs article that was linked to in yesterday’s weekly links is free to access once you have registered. It is worth going as FA is a very good publication.

Alternatively, ask me for a print out tomorrow :-).
