Threat from the East. How the World Will Respond to the ISIS Threat

26.02.2016
The hottest spot of the world today is the Middle East. Properly in the Middle East leading world players tested strategies, concepts, ideological formulas, their commitment to act and the real scale of the objectives. The current situation in the region has caught everyone by surprise; for the first time in many years it forced world powers to react to changes, and not to initiate and control them.

How ISIS structure allows coexistence of archaic and ultra-modern features?

What are specific threats of ISIS for the region, for Russia and for the entire world?

Can you defeat ISIS, or better to leave the Middle East alone?

What are the possible scenarios of events?
