Perhaps after they finish being terrorists they could turn their skills to cave/mine exploring.

IS were just copying what the North Vietnamese did in south Vietnam.
That defeated the USA!
However in the Middle East we have the Kurds and others who are hell bent on revenge!
You always have to remember in Nam, the bulk of the grunts were drafted.

swerving slightly off-topic, I can highly recommend The Tunnels of Cu Chi by Tom Mangold for bedtime reading.

There came into being a special breed of soldier - the "Tunnel Rat" who developed highly specialised skills for underground warfare. Guns

shale, water and poor air's bad enough; punji stakes and booby traps would just ruin your day.

Thumb Up Good read. I visited the Bin Dwoc tunnels in Saigon a few years ago. Thumb Up

edit: Sorry, if you work for the BBC or read the Guardian then for Saigon, read "Ho Chi Minh City" Laugh
