In an interview with Aimee Amiga for Haaretz.com, Dr. Harold Rhode, a former Islamic world adviser to the Secretary of Defense office at the Pentagon, explains why the United States doesn’t need a coalition of allies to eradicate Islamic State.

He also explains what lessons the United States has learned since the war in Iraq, and why it would be a mistake for America to team up with Iran against their common enemy.
