One of the gloomiest sessions at the New America/ASU conference on the future of war was an examination of the rise of ISIS. “The U.S. is aligned with the very regimes who helped create ISIS,” warned Emma Sky, a sometime Best Defense contributor who advised the U.S. military in Iraq and now teaches at Yale. She warned that ISIS is not so much the problem as the symptom of larger problems. And if those larger problems are not addressed, you simply will see other forms of ISIS emerge.
