[OP-ED]: Trump stumbles into another decade of war in the Middle East

During the campaign, Trump seemed to be genuinely reflective about America’s role in the Middle East. “This is not usually me talking, OK, ‘cause I’m very proactive,” he once said on the subject. EFE
English

While we have been focused on the results of special elections, the ups and downs of the Russia investigation, and President Trump’s latest tweets, under the radar, a broad and consequential shift in American foreign policy appears to be underway. Put simply, the United States is stumbling its way into another decade of war in the greater Middle East. And this next decade of conflict might prove to be even more destabilizing than the last one.

Mientras que nos hemos enfocado en los resultados de elecciones especiales, en los altibajos de la investigación de Rusia, en los últimos tuits del presidente Trump, desapercibidos, un cambio amplio e importante en la política exterior estadounidense parece en marcha. En resumen, Estados Unidos está tropezando frente a otra década de guerra en el gran Medio Oriente. Además, esta próxima década de conflicto podría ser más desestabilizadora que la anterior.
