    The only way ISIS could ever be made into a Bond film is through mentions and how they are financed by shadowy organizations like SPECTRE, and that is all. Bond fights shadowy powers that orchestrate world affairs without anyone knowing. ISIS is a subject of a direct combat that military departments handle, attack, take down and whatever. Those aforementioned terrorists are not subjects of espionage.

    You think so?

    Our security services are involved in gathering intelligence on ISIS - so espionage is involved. Epsionage is involved in all military situations - they're not called Military Intelligence 5 and Military Intelligence 6 without reason.

    Alright, I'll rephrase. Espionage is involved by only to a degree where intelligence and information is gathered, and done in the most discreet and at minimum rate of detection. But, to fight and lock horns with the entirety of ISIS and the likes is a pure military and navy business. Special Forces as Dragonpol said in the previous page.

    Yes, but MI5 is not the Service that Bond belongs to of course, rendering your point invalid, surely.

    If you read it properly I mentioned both MI5 and MI6. It is interesting how agitated people get on internet forums when you disagree with them. Oh well ...

    I'm not agitated at all and I'm not sure where you get that impression from my posts. I'm just saying that the killing of such targets is left to the Special Forces of the US/UK Armed Forces and Navy, and not intelligence officers in the field like Bond.

    I didn't say you were and neither did I believe you to be so. The killing, absolutely, never contradicted that at all.

    Oh, I apologise, it just seemed that way to me from your reply to my post above.

    Of course in a fictional story like a Bond film Bond could fight ISIS or the Rump of the Taliban or Al-Qaeda (or Boko Haram for that matter) it just might not be the most realistic option for him to do so. The only way to do it realistically would be to have Bond seconded from MI6 to say the Royal Navy Special Forces, but I suppose Bond and intelligence services realism probably parted company many years ago so all of that may be academic.

    Sadly if they did directly address them by name? It would glorify them! Also it would put the crew and cast of future movies at severe risk on location filming possibly? That is how twisted these people are!

    True. But publically destroying them on film isn't bad PR either.

    I think that President Trump will try his hand at that and he certainly seems more proactive than the previous US administration was, if the Syrian airbase bombardment is anything to go by.

    Good for him.
