How ISIS Built Its Machinery of Terror Under Europe’s Gaze

Two years before the Paris and Brussels assaults, a special branch of the group was churning out smaller attacks that the authorities repeatedly discounted as isolated or random acts.

Competitive zeal, persistence and patient investment have been crucial to Microsoft’s triumphs over the years, as it built businesses instead of buying them. The formula worked again and again, in personal computer operating systems, applications like word processors and spreadsheets, data center software, and even video game systems.
The same tactics also vanquished the challenge from the early leader in Internet browsing software, Netscape Communications, in the 1990s. But Microsoft’s campaign in the browser rivalry led to the sweeping federal antitrust suit against the company, filed in 1998, and continuing antitrust oversight in the United States and Europe.

So there was admiration, there was violence. There was also difficulty learning the language because the Chinese government was unwilling to let Westerners learn Chinese.
