"The current one is considerably more insane and militant."
I'm not necessarily sure of that. I suspect that the hard(er)-liners and military men have more sway now with this younger leader and so may be pushing more direct and belligerent action. Or, he could be doing it of his own accord in order to prove his strength and resolve to those same hard-liners. Not much difference between the two really, I suppose.
