Five current unpleasant realities:
1. The Islamic State is a pro-to Sunni Arab state controlling massive territory.
2. Currently, a proto-Kurdish State currently exits.
3. Neither Assad, nor Iraqi (Shia dominated) is going to win battle for legitimacy.
4. Both regimes are Shia dominated &
5. Assad's regime cannot be defeated as long at it receives Russian/Iranian assistance.
Professor Kolenda's policy is to reverse these trends while providing longterm regional security.
