Former French soldiers, including Special Forces, join ISIS

As the fight to ISIS keep going on, many sad and bad news are coming out.

On the attached article you will read about (in this case) “former” French soldiers (also coming from SF Units) joining ISIS Forces.

I personally feel frustrated by such news.  If in one hand I expected such event (Is not only because they where soldiers that shouldn’t join the “dark side”), on the other hand, to think that well prepared Soldiers are joining the bad cause can only raise my concern!

My primary concern stand in the fact that ISIS personnel will surely exploit their knowledge and experience in order to better fight the “Coalition Forces'”;  than, as second step, they will probably create special cells within the Jihadists, which will be able to operate autonomously and perpetrate simple or even complex operations in order to attack any possible target around the world!

My secondary concern stand in the media effect;  having Special forces Joining the ISIS could become that good incentive to let many other (for the moment not yet decided or sure) to join the ISIS cause!

I personally have not a real solution to this situation; have been demonstrated that are not only muslims deciding to join ISIS, but also (and especially) converted to Islam, that normally follow the extremism path. And we all know that a person motivated by “faith” can be way more drastic in his/her decision than a person motivated by any other thing!
