Just to complement an excellent assessment: ISIS shura council, sharia council and military council--the governing structure--is comprised of Iraqis only. Baathist officers from the Naqshbandi Brotherhood run the military council, with Chechens as key unit commanders. This is an Iraqi phenomenon first--Sunni. Syria is a vital safe haven , but for the ISIS leadership from awl-Baghdadi down, this is about Iraq and the American and Iranian betrayals.
