In March 2016, the Obama Administration determined that acts carried out by ISIS against Christians, Yazidis, and Shia Muslims in Iraq and Syria constitute genocide. Now the U.S. must determine what it will do in the face of this genocide. The acknowledgement of reality must come with support for its victims and punishment for perpetrators – and an answer to the very real question of whether or not the world will stand by as ISIS seeks to end the existence of Christianity in its cradle.
During his trip to India two weeks ago, U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter met with his Indian counterpart Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar for the fourth time in a year.

Is the defense relationship meeting its full potential? Is India poised to provide the “anchor of global security,” a vision offered by the U.S. Defense Secretary last December? Join us as a distinguished panel of experts examines what the future of U.S.-India defense cooperation holds.
For Americans, China is sometimes an intellectual construct, at various times viewed with respect for its economic growth, wariness regarding its international assertiveness, concern over exchange rates and intellectual property rights, or admiration for its culture and its history.

But regardless of the challenges, the emergence of China might represent potential opportunity for the United States as well.
