The Islamic State Makes A Movie. Flames of War: Fighting Has Just Begun

Coming soon to a computer near you…


While the trailer for its upcoming movie looks like something made by someone sitting in their mother’s basement, The Islamic State (ISIS) has shown that it knows how to manipulate and use social media and the internet to frighten its enemies and recruit new forces. They have been remarkably successful on both fronts with thousands of foreign recruits pouring in from all over the world to support the new caliphate and entire divisions of Iraqi troops fleeing in terror before just a few hundred fanatical fighters.

Up until now, ISIS has been famous for its barrage of terror snuff videos showing a blood array of executions, beheadings, torture, crucifixions, and mass slaughter. This upcoming “movie” will their first real and more sophisticated attempt to tailor that image to answer the upcoming war that President Obama and his so-called “broad coalition” is preparing to launch against them. The war of words  is already in full swing on both sides and this sneak peek at how ISIS will respond psychologically and in the realm of propaganda to the drums of war now beating against them is interesting to say the least.

From the video description:


HD ISIS VIDEO – Flames of War Trailer In one of the Islamic State’s first responses to President Obama’s declaration that he would “degrade and ultimately destroy” it, the group released a short video late Tuesday in which it appeared to say that its militants would kill American ground forces should President Obama deploy them.
It begins with American tanks and troops under attack by fire and American soldiers carrying a wounded comrade into an armored vehicle.

The images flick by, including a shot of the “Mission Accomplished” banner that served as a backdrop on the day President George W. Bush landed on an aircraft carrier six weeks after the United States invaded Iraq in 2003. That is followed by shots of Mr. Obama and the White House at night.

In the background, Mr. Obama is heard saying, “American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq.” The screen goes dark, and then a clip is played of what appears to be a militant for the group who is preparing to execute men on their knees.

The words “Flames of War” appear, with the phrase “Fighting has just begun” below.

Laith Alkhouri, a senior analyst at Flashpoint Global Partners, a New York security consulting firm that tracks militant websites, said the Islamic State “appears to be more relentless than ever, not only expanding in territory but also raising the bar in its confrontation with the world’s top superpower.”

“In some ways, it’s attempting to prove to jihadists that while Al Qaeda is missing in action, we are rising to the occasion,” Mr. Alkhouri said. “It demonstrates the true intention of the group, to operate on an international level.”


The simple fact is that a well-funded and equipped army of 30,000 plus strong is capable of guerrilla warfare techniques against U.S. Citizens on U.S. Soil and abroad, and is threatening to carry out religious jihad against America. There is no doubt that as they continue to grow in size and strength they become a potential threat to the United States and civilized peoples everywhere.  Even if you believe that they aren’t currently an imminent threat, one would think it’s important to be preemptive when dealing with such savages.

There is a point where humanity much unite together to fight such types of people simply because of who they are and what they believe. The ideology of death or conversion at the point of the sword is one the West should be willing to grind into the hot sands of the Middle East without mercy or a second thought. The world once vowed “never again” and has failed to live up to that promise time and time again. Perhaps this newly arisen incarnation of an old foe will be the catalyst for the West and its local allies in the region to eradicate such barbarians once and for all. This generational war will continue indefinitely unless ISIS in particular, and Islamofascism in general, is smashed completely and the clear message is sent that those who wage Jihad will be exterminated anytime they raise their heads and once again wade through the rivers of blood of their victims.
