As of late-August 2014 much speculation is focusing on whether the United States defence budget will be re-orientated to take account of the threat from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). ISIS is posing a major security risk to US allies in the Middle East, following its occupation of a considerable quantity of the northern regions of Iraq and Syria during the first six months of 2014. In mid-2014, the US commenced airstrikes against ISIS ground forces in northern Iraq.

These efforts were particularly evident during the 2014 Farnborough Air Show in the United Kingdom which witnessed over 230 US exhibitors and a large number of high-level attendees who visited the event.
