All sides value propaganda…

Flames Of War.  Glorifying sacrifice and the honor of death in battle is the clarion call of all militants.  All belligerent groups engage in it.  History is not solely written by the victors.  Modern communications allow competing narratives.  As the jihadist movement solidifies into the Islamic state, media efforts will propagate, recruit, and sensationalize.

Everyone interested in building local resilience in the Western world should take note of new propaganda realities, as well as the capabilities of those sworn to attack them.
