The Trump administration, like the Obama administration before it, is militarily invested in Iraq and Syria. Yet it has no strategic vision for Syria after the fight against ISIS is over.
If Islamists want to keep Muslims from integrating into French society and encourage them to resist through violence, it would be in their best interest to have Marine Le Pen in power.
We shouldn’t need humanitarian prompting to care about Syria. We should care because we’re terrified of the implications for our own interests and security.
All of this domestic turmoil comes at a time China and Russia are posturing and flexing their military might. These are dangerous times and miscalculations can bring tragic consequences.
As ISIS loses ground in Syria and Iraq, there is increasing concern that militants will flee to nearby countries and terror cells to regroup.
Defeating ISIS would most likely necessitate a holistic, long-term approach in Iraq along the lines of the 2007 surge. But this would cost the president significant political capital.

President Obama mismanaged two wars, oversaw the collapse of order across the Middle East, and left the United States and the world less safe.
America faces an international order that’s unstable and in disarray. If Trump doesn’t act to restore that order, we may soon find ourselves in another war.
As the coalition against ISIS moves to deprive the terrorist group of its territory, we must consider the consequences that victory could bring.
Italian mobsters appear to be trading weapons from Russian criminals to ISIS in exchange for antiquities looted from Syria and Lebanon. This contradicts ISIS’s pretense of religious purity.
From his disastrous ‘red line’ in Syria to the Iran Deal, President Obama has implemented a spineless foreign policy. Today, we see its consequences.
‘We are not safe in Iraq while Daesh (ISIS) is in control. We have no future, no work, no belongings,’ says an Iraqi genocide survivor.
