Vox offers video: "What Happens When ISIS Fails?"
Vox has produced a short film (7:30) by Sam Elllis, “What Happens When ISIS Fails?”
The film does go into the issue of fighter (sometimes whole families) returning after ISIS loses all its territory that it had claimed as an unrecognized “state”. Many return with very radical views, and many were recruiting by slickly produced media on the Internet, and then processed subsequently on the Dark Web.
The video above on YouTube asks “What’s It Like to Fight for the Islamic State?”
