FILE – This undated file image posted on a militant website on Jan. 4, 2014, which is consistent with other AP reporting, shows Shakir Waheib, a senior member of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), now called the Islamic State group, left, next to a burning police vehicle in Iraq’s Anbar Province. Hundreds of thousands have died, most in a ferocious and seemingly unwinnable Syrian civil war that also displaced millions and threatens to destabilize Lebanon and Jordan. Libya is an ungovernable and dangerous mess. And Islamic radicals have seized the discourse to a great extent; a US-led coalition fights them now, in Syria and Iraq.
