To the Editor:
If the U.S. is to have a role in the defeat of ISIS and not just charge into another quagmire, we need allies fighting for their own mission and ours, not just proxies in it for the swag. That means giving up the Sykes-Picot map of 1916 and endorsing the legitimate national aspirations of the peoples of the region as ambassador John Bolton sketches. Then, finally, our military will be in service to the policy president Obama called for, looking forward, and not backwards.
