    This may be a big opportunity for the whole religious idea of a caliphate in Islam to more or less collapse. I don’t think the established governments of the Islamic countries are going to stand hitched for being usurped by an impostor. Volunteers may flow in because many Islamic believers are nuts, but I suspect advanced weapons will not because the heads of state will “believe” much more like Machiavelli’s advice to a Prince.
