WASHINGTON: According to recent warnings IS is the greatest threat US has faced in recent years.
Islamic State militants are the most dangerous threat the US has faced in recent years, Washington has warned. Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel stated that US air strikes had broken the Islamic State’s advance in Iraq.
Regardless of this the Islamic State militants are likely to regroup. US top general Martin Dempsey has emphasized upon the fact that Islamic State militias will not be defeated without attacking their base in Syria. These warnings were publicised after IS posted a video showing the beheading of US journalist James Foley.
