Did ISIS go too far? Will the reaction to the Paris Attacks prove to be a “game-changer” that transforms the effort to combat the so-called “Islamic State?” Even with more cooperation among France, Russia, the US, and other nations, Aaron David Miller describes a “long war” with no easy resolution in sight. That’s the focus of this edition of  Wilson Center NOW.
