Why ISIS might regret the decision to go global

Why ISIS might regret the decision to go global | International Scenarios | Scoop.it
Initial reports about the Paris attacks suggest a disturbing possibility: that ISIS is changing its strategy and going global.

Desterrados en su propia tierra

Desterrados en su propia tierra | International Scenarios | Scoop.it

CHARTS: U.S. Army size and defense expenditures relative to other nations | International Scenarios | Scoop.it

In early May 2015, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made a historic but little noticed visit to Somalia, a country no other U.S. secretary of state had ever visited.

Brookings' Vanda Felbab-Brown reports.
