John Cantlie, from the UK, was captured by ISIS in 2012. Since then, he has been held by the terrorist organization in dire conditions and forced to star in propaganda videos, in which he reads off a script, chastising foreign governments.

Regarding the U.S.-led airstrikes against ISIS in Syria, Cantlie says:

“Air power is good at taking out specific targets but it is not much use at taking and holding ground. For that you need effective and disciplined troops and it is hard to see how this hotch-potch army with a long history of under performing is going to be any form of credible infantry.”

The richest terror organization in the world, ISIS invests heavily in their media campaigns to recruit followers. They have been successful in their efforts to lure Westerners in with their wide-reaching social media tools. We have seen Americans, Europeans and Australians leave their homelands to join the Islamic State after succumbing to their propaganda material.

Cantlie was taken by the Islamic State in Syria, along with British aide worker David Haines, who was beheaded earlier this month.

Cantlie closes by assuring the world that there is more to come from the Islamic State, a chilling sentiment. Let us know what you think of this propaganda video in the comments section.
