"ISIS is like a plantar wart on your toe: If you don't cut all of it out, it will come back and start spreading again.

That appears to be what's happening in Syria, where the terrorist group has surged attacks into areas that the Syrian regime and its Russian allies had controlled, a U.S. military spokesman said on Tuesday.

Previously, government officials confidently asserted that ISIS has lost 98% of its caliphate in Iraq and Syria since U.S.-led military operations began in August 2014 Now that ISIS is no longer a conventional army, the fight has become more complicated. The terrorist group is embracing asymmetric warfare tactics and can appear in areas thought cleared.

ISIS is not dead, just a mere shadow of its former self. This is probably true of most terrorist groups.

ISIS as a terrorist organization will continue in one form or another until it morphs into something else, but The caliphate has been destroyed.
