Philippines Muslim terrorist latch on to ISIS losers

NY Times:

How ISIS Is Rising in the Philippines as It Dwindles in the Middle East

In the lawless jungles and seas of the southern Philippines, militants launch deadly attacks under the black flag of the Islamic State.
A few years ago they were latching onto al Qaida.  Muslims in the Philippines have a long history of terrorism and rebellion.   The military sidearm used from the early 1900s through the Vietnam war was developed to deal with the fanatics.  I carried one as XO of a rifle company in Northern I Corps. The M1911 pistol has a storied history.
