ISIS seeks to take credit for any kind of attack, or act of god, to give an exaggerated impression of how important they really are.

ISIS, take a number. You are very late to the party'tho I will grant you Drama Queen status, what with the black negligees and all. We have so many right wing, religious extremist groups claiming responsibility or assigning responsibility for any and all unfortunate circumstances or disasters that y'all will have to wait in line for a turn. Because we have turned from God, the Constitution and/or the Confederacy, we are being punished. Our sons & daughters are being killed in foreign lands because homosexuals, caused by a purple Teletubby on PBS (itself a Libtard welfare mindcontrol media subversive Communist element) are rampant across the land and this is God's justice. Why waste your time with us? We have this whole retribution thing well in hand. I would actually advise you that, should you have any hope of longevity, you avoid our sea-to-shining-sea altogether. Despite a history of long-suffering tolerance, we take absolutely NO truck with each other's bad manners or opposing beliefs. Yes, yes, this is directly contrary to all that freedom of speech, religion, blah blah guaranteed by the Constitution. Note to Outlanders all in love with their own ideology: WHAT? Who? You know Obamallah paid you to invade and take our guns. Meet my little friends and all their little full metal jacket tiny friends who just can't wait to have up close and personal conversations. You may make noise about responsibility for this and that, but you've got a lot of competition!

Overestimating ISIS is probably better than underestimating ISIS. I understand using psychological advantage when we can. They seem to be better at motivating the disenfranchised and zealots through social media than we are at de-motivating them. Probably because they are more determined and ruthless. And we aren't really in the game. Our side is hampered by the shackles of political decisions and political correctness.
As you know, Jack, press is press. And they’re very good t using both the press and social media. Youtube seems to have been built for them. Terrorist lesson #1: If you did it, claim responsibility. If you didn’t do it, claim responsibility. Keep people guessing at all times.
