The zone of intervention includes many countries in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East

Strategy needed as Islamic conflict zone widens

As war threatens to engulf a region stretching from Iraq to sub-Saharan Africa, the United States, Europe and their allies must come up with a coordinated strategy for intervening. A major international conference where a plan could be hashed out would be a good place to start. In any possible intervention, Europe will have a special role to play.

However blatantly obvious the facts are, the West still prefers to avert its eyes. This is the case in Libya, which has become the new stronghold of Daesh (also known as Islamic State or IS) and if need be could serve as its fallback position. It is also true in Iraq and Syria, where it is certain to be discovered with much surprise that IS is now so firmly entrenched that only another massive intervention by Western ground forces would dislodge it.

Western military commanders are apparently already discussing the possibility of war in Libya, a country beset by chaos as the result of an earlier, disastrous intervention. Nevertheless, the West must recognize that Daesh’s cancerous ideology will continue to spread, sowing conflict around the world. Besides Libya, the Sinai Desert, Nigeria, the Sahel region, Afghanistan and even Europe have become battlegrounds in a war that takes no prisoners.
