The latest attack in Paris shows that ISIS has a long game in mind. The immediate ramifications for law-enforcement personnel in the US is that ISIS and Al Queda often use these attacks as a way of directing their followers to their targeting preferences. The follow on attacks tend to have the same pattern until another method emerges. Whether they directly organized this attack remains unclear, there is anecdotal evidence that they were behind it. The attack comes at a crucial moment in France as they prepare for an election to choose their next president. Marine Le Penn of the National Front party more than likely will benefit most from the terror attack due to a wave of nationalism permeating European elections and her strong stance on Immigration and tightening the borders. France and the rest of Europe has been rocked by a series of terror attacks and security forces seem incapable of preventing or stopping the carnage. If Le Pen wins, she is the candidate that could lead France away from the EU. Her victory would more than likely lead to France exiting from the EU. If so, that would just about guarantee an EU collapse. The collapse of the European Union would also most likely curtail or eliminate the strategic cooperation by European nations in the fight against ISIS. In the short term, The reformation of traditional borders would hinder the free movement of terror cells throughout the European continent. However, the strategic necessity to carry out the attacks would also decrease as European nations pull out of the region due to regional financial concerns giving ISIS the ability attempt to regain control.
