28. Because ISIS are well known for sticking to the "rules of war".



France (among others) bombed Qaddafi's military, so he could not use it to stop the revolution in Libya. That's the pretext for ISIS attacking France.

But again, ISIS barely has the ability to hold vacant desert. They aren't waging war on France, because they'd be crushed in a "traditional" war.

ISIS is seeking to provoke "the West" into attacking Muslim countries, so that those countries bring an actual military and we can get WWIII going.
