Lessons for the Next President from America’s Wars of the 21st Century

Joseph J. Collins, Ph.D., Institute for National Strategic Studies, National Defense University

Professor Collins’s research effort began with two questions from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs: what were the costs and benefits of our wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and what were the strategic lessons from those conflicts. His presentation will cover the difficulty of learning from experience and then outline the strategic lessons derived from our experience in Afghanistan and Iraq. Those lessons will cover a number of subjects from civil-military interaction to unity of effort to the changing character of war.  He will also discuss the costs and benefits of these conflicts, and their applicability of his research to the war against ISIS.
