More than four years ago, ISIS ruled over 8 million people across a swath of territory the size of the United Kingdom. Today, its fighters are defiant but defeated either locked up in makeshift detention camps, dead, or in hiding. If Arab governments hope to sustain this success, they must do the difficult work of addressing the many political, social, and economic causes that served as kindling for ISIS s propaganda and recruitment.This reality stands in contrast to the conventional but misplaced argument among the Washington foreign policy elite that keeping ISIS permanently suppressed is the responsibility of the U.S military. Part of this sentiment rests on Washington s general over reliance on military intervention, where endless deployments in the Middle East are viewed as acceptable holding patterns to ensure terrorists don t regenerate. Another part is due to the tendency of the U.S. national security establishment to take primary ownership of regional problems regardless of its strategic importance to American security and prosperity.

Released on artist Aleksi Briclot s Instagram, we get a very different take on the Vers character.

All of that has given fans reason to believe she s counting down the days until a new era begins.As if those clues weren t enough, Swift has been using flamingo imagery as well, which might mean that Perry could come into play during this new era. As some fans have pointed out on Twitter, Swift wore a flamingo patch on her jacket for the Reputation magazine shoot which may or may not have been a shout out to Perry, since she apparently has lots of love for flamingos. Have a look:
