Do you think that the ISIS in the near future can become a threat/greater threat to the USA or our allies?

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Is that what you are referring to? I don't think they are a direct threat but the crisis could draw us in, then if other countries get involved who knows?

Thank you. I was wondering what that stood for

My bad for not specifying lol. It's concerning! I saw it coming since January or so when they took Fallujah, but this is a really scary show of power, and it also shows that we utterly failed in iraq.

Iraq is IMO a look 5 years into the future of what Afghanistan will be like. Things will fall apart after we leave just like Iraq. Such a hard thing to fight though

I think other powers will force Afghanistan to be stable. China and India will probably vie for influence as to prevent radicalism so close to their borders. Afghanistan also has more legitimacy as a country than Iraq ever did.

Afghanistan will never be 100 percent stable. Closest it ever was to stable in the past 50 years was in the late 90s. But they were committing genocides and public executions.
