A new vision for America’s role in the Middle East

For all the efforts the United States has made to shape the Middle East – why is the region still in chaos? Why are we constantly intervening and then finding ourselves in situations where we can do no good – and no good comes to us? Our desire to dominate the Middle East militarily and control its resources has destabilized the region and made Americans less safe. To end endless wars and bring home our troops, we have to begin by giving up on the illusion that military dominance can fix the region.
