"As the Islamic State terror network loses territory across Iraq and Syria, analysts and experts assert that the terrorist outfit is increasingly capitalizing on the chaos of Libya, positioning the country as its point of resurgence.

The black-clad jihadist outfit is believed to be regrouping and recruiting in the rural regions south of the main east-to-west coastal highway and in the far-west town of Sabratha, which is poised just 60 miles from the Tunisian border, since being run out of its Libyan "caliphate" capital of Sirte late last year.

"The majority of their fighting force comes from Tunisia, so Sabratha is also a growing center," prominent terrorism analyst Robert Young Pelton told Fox News. "ISIS in Libya can regenerate quickly."…."

All they need is for us to give them good jobs that they can be proud of, and the opportunity to make something positive of themselves.

And then they'll finally learn to accept or at least tolerate there rest of the human race. Right?

PS. By the way, in case there are people here with EXTREMELY short memories, ISIS has been in Libya for a few years now. They showed up shortly after we helped Al-Qaeda and their friends depose Qaddafi (Oct 2011). And from Libya ISIS has forged strong connections with Boko Haram and others of their branches.
