Certain Death is Good Information for Islamists to Have

It is difficult to judge whether online efforts to discourage the creation of jihadis works on the target audience of jihad-primed Islamists.

I'm not against efforts like this:

The number of programs dedicated to countering violent extremism (CVE) has grown in recent years, yet a fundamental gap remains in the understanding of the effectiveness of such programs. This is particularly the case for CVE campaigns, which are increasingly conducted in the online space.

But I am convinced that these so-called WebOps work best with LeadOps that kill jihadis as a discouragement to join the jihad.

So don't forget the KVE (killing violent extremism) program.
