The Atlantic: What does ISIS really want?

quote [ Muslims can reject the Islamic State; nearly all do. But pretending that it isnt actually a religious, millenarian group, with theology that must be understood to be combatted, has already led the United States to underestimate it and back foolish schemes to counter it. Well need to get acquainted with the Islamic States intellectual genealogy if we are to react in a way that will not strengthen it, but instead help it self-immolate in its own excessive zeal. ]

I don't always like the Atlantic, but I found this an interesting essay on the ideals and logic that rule an organisation that to most of us seems bent on random, psychopathic violence.
