Islamic State to bring guerrilla warfare to Western cities

AFP reports on comments by David Kilcullen, an Australian army veteran, who became the senior counter-insurgency adviser to U.S. Gen. David Petraeus during the Iraq War. Considered a key architect of the “surge” strategy that helped turn the conflict around, Mr. Kilcullen said, “The Paris attacks showed the Islamic State group (IS) was morphing from a terrorist threat into a ‘structured organization’ like the IRA in Ireland or ETA in Spain during the 20th century.”
