As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.
Most of us have gone brain numb to what ISIS is, like al Qaeda, so the outlayer groups do not make a great deal of sense as now the game is to not call all terrorists, terrorists, but to have fashionable names for each group.
There is something which emerged when Mad Dog Mattis took over Defense on his first day, and it was a series of almost 50 strikes in Syria and Iraq. What is interesting in these operations is first they reveal that President Vladimir Putin has knocked the hell out of Obama's ISIS, in there are only command and control, car bomb factories and "light" positions left.
In this a term came up that Mad Dog specifically went after, and it is something which has been kept completely out of the MSM, and that term is LEVANT.

The specific terms were ISIS and LEVANT. Levant is interesting in it was up until Obama's regime started training, arming and importing terrorists into Syria was an absolutely NON TERROR area. The Levant district had Christians and Muslims living together, and rejecting bin Laden's al Qaeda infidel ideology and terrorism. Yet the Levant in terrorists there were specifically targeted by Mad Dog.
.In the Levant, Islamic politics, like all politics, are local and are rarely connected to the global Salafi-jihadi movement.
Al-Qa`ida’s Ideology: Few Followers in the Levant
Al-Qa`ida’s ideology does not have a strong popular following or support base in most of the Levant. This is in part because of the region’s long history of communal (Christian-Muslim and Sunni-Shi`a) co-existence and rejection of takfiriyya (labeling a Muslim an infidel), which is a basic tenet of al-Qa`ida’s ideology.
In Syria, while society has lately become more Islamic—as evidenced by the increased number of veiled women, skyrocketing mosque-construction, a thriving religious literature market, significant growth in Islamic charity organizations and rising attendance at informal home Qur’an classes—increasing religiosity in the country has not translated into a rise in takfiri ideology or Islamic militancy.
Mad Dog took out thee most important feature in Syria in the ISIS terrorists were stealing oil, which is how the Obama regime has set up this entire scam with the bootleggers in Turkey, and the money skimmed to US political parties of McCain and Clinton, and ISIS gaining it's share, with the gifted handlers who set up this entire operation.
Now back engineer this, in President Putin killed tens of thousands of ISIS. image Obama was dropping tons of bombs on competitors of ISIS and the Syrian military, and all that was left were the special assets of the Obama regime, and those smiling terrorists what John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio were posing with.
I should say, all that was left were these terrorists, as Mad Dog blew them into bits and took their oil from them..........so you know, when you blow an oil well for image Obama and McCain terrorists, you are also as policy blowing an oil well which will fund President Assad. Yes it is called leverage and signals US policy to not allow anyone to oil fund out of Syria.
As a side note, you did notice the dynamic duo of McCain and Graham, grabbing their ankles after Mr. Trump was Inaugurated and got out of the way for Tillerson as Secretary of State, and Little Hands Marco Rubio stopped being a problem.......and immediately Mad Dog blows the bajesus out of their terrorists as Obama heads for the attic.
It is remarkable that the Levant, a sub-region plagued by internal and external crisis conditions that are generally conducive to terrorism and political violence, has been free from any insurgent  Islamist group with verifiable material ties to al-Qa`ida’s central leadership. The two ambitious attempts by Arab Salafi-jihadis to create insurgent forces in the Levant occurred in Lebanon in May-September 2007 when Fatah al-Islam violently emerged in the northern part of the country, and on August 15, 2009 in Gaza when Jund Ansar Allah declared war on Hamas. These two attempts sought to radically change the existing socio-political orders in Lebanon and Gaza through the use of religiously-inspired insurgent violence. Both attempts failed, however. Although al-Qa`ida has been tied to terrorist plots in the Levant, it does not appear responsible or interested in the few Islamist insurgent movements that have arisen in the region.
It is an amazing thing that those who were running al Qaeda could not implant terrorist control into the Levant, until Obama McCain ejaculated their semen to father a terror network, not based on Islam or Opium, but on Oil.
And then comes 2012, and why John McCain was smiling, as 'someone' out of 1600 Penn hijacked or should it be said bribed a community organized mafia group, as cover for an al Qaeda alternative group under the mystery name of ISIS or Levant.
At least three (unrelated) groups claim the name Jund al-Sham. The group in Afghanistan is a terrorist group believed to have first appeared in 1999. It was established by Syrians, Palestinians and Lebanese with links to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who went on to found al Qaeda in Iraq and was subsequently killed by a US airstrike. The second group (Soldiers of the Levant) is an anti-Fatah Sunni Muslim group formed in the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh in 2004 and is considered a splinter group of Osbat al-Nour. It has claimed responsibility for the car bomb assassination of Hezbollah official Ghaleb Awwali, claiming the assassination was part of a plan to eradicate Shiite heresy. Later however a man claiming to be the group's leader denied any involvement. A third group, also calling itself Jund al Sham, is a new Salafi jihadist group in Syria that announced its formation in the Syrian city of Homs in 2012. The group is supportive…
Odd how terror queen McCain is not smiling any more, running any more coups against President Trump, now that prosecution is a factor, as his money laundering terrorists are in bits and pieces.
