I have been thinking about the Middle East and how to stop ISIS. In addition to forming a coalition of Nations to destroy them , why not consider the following?
1. Since they appear to thrive on Publicity and they are sophisticated “Techies” , I would recommend a blackout of all of their Social Media sites. If they wish to bomb everyone back to the Stone Age, let them live by Stone Age rules.
2. Make it difficult to use their computers. Where are Hackers, when you need them?
3. Consider all foreign nationals who join their regime, “Terrorists ” to be tried for ” crimes against their Nation”, when and if they return to their Country of origin.
4. Since ISIS makes money from various income Streams, cut off their access to money. We have the ability to trace several levels of money laundering. Why isn’t providing funds to ISIS a crime? I don’t wish to give anyone ideas, but Bitcoins, to my knowledge are not as transparent. Perhaps we could contrive to sell Bitcoins short, and curtail their buying power?
5. Why not stop the International trade of Antiquities from becoming another ISIS income stream? Make trading in illegal , un-documented , stolen Antiquities, non transferable, similar to the Ivory Trade?
Dear readers, these are several methods I thought about last night, to stop the ISIS “publicity and money supply” . I invite anyone to offer your suggestions as well. We’re dealing with men and women , who have chosen Terrorism as a career path. They are made of ” flesh and blood”, just like the rest of US. They can be stopped, we need the will, we have the means. Let’s unite when, Politics effects Us. Wishing everyone, all the best.
