Isis - at some point does it implode?

I'm thinking of the French Revolution and the Reign of Terror. My understanding is that it reached the point where everyone was guilty of something, then several of the leaders went to the guillotine and things quieted down into Napoleon's military coup.

2. I agree it'll take a strong man to keep it going -

but then the goal will be to keep him in power, for example Stalin.
