and Syria conflicts.
As the situation on the ground in Northern Iraq and Syria has become more unstable, it has become unsafe for journalists to travel around the region, and reporting has become even more reliant on "commentators" whose information is either out of date, or ideologically filtered. All this would be fascinating enough, but the reason Isis has become of such pressing concern to western policy makers is the threat that it will export its brand of violent jihad abroad. Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula have claimed responsibility for this month's Paris attacks, and it is widely assumed that one of their motivations was to reassert their supremacy over Isis as the leaders in international jihad. The prospect of jihadist rivalry being played out on the streets of western capitals in a world of open borders and budget flights means that we may all need to get up to speed on Isis. What does the future hold for Islamic Sta.
ocial media has been one of the most remarkable aspects of their rise: propaganda videos, appeals to jihad, macabre jokes and boasts on Twitter, the hijacking of other websites to spread their message. The nimble, reactive use of social media makes Isis a post modern force, combining loyalty to a rigid form of Islam with a 21st century Twitter account. They also give the lie to the idea held as self evident during the so called "Arab Spring" that internet access inevitably serves the interests of liberal democracy.

War of our times, calling on ideologically committed young men who find themselves energised to be playing their part in a clash of civilisations. Behind all this, as Cockburn shows, lie the ancient enmities between Sunni and Shia Islam, and the failure of the so called War on Terror, which smashed the Baathist state in Iraq and accelerated that country towards its eventual Balkanisation without putting viable civic structures in place to secure it. Also implicated is the failure of Western politics towards Syria. But while the Americans, as well as the Saudis and the Turks, come in for criticism here, Cockburn is also unsparing about the failures of his own profession when it comes to covering the conflict. The broadcast media (print journalists are amongst the very few heroes in this book) are castigated for preferring images to facts, and relying too heavily on English speaking, westernised spokespeople from the various factionalised interests in the Iraq Adidas Gazelle Og Maroon Uk
