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

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.

Durante la campaña, Trump parecía estar sumamente reflexivo en cuanto al rol de Estados Unidos en el Medio Oriente. “Esto no significa que casi siempre esté yo hablando, bueno, porque soy muy proactivo”, dijo una vez al respecto. EFE

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.

Donald Trump regresó de su primer viaje al exterior convencido de que había unificado a los aliados árabes históricos de Estados Unidos, que había dado un fuerte golpe contra el terrorismo y que había calmado las aguas de un Oriente Medio ingobernable. Desde ese entonces hemos visto una serie de ataques terroristas en Europa y en el Oriente Medio y una división abierta dentro del mundo árabe. ¿Qué está sucediendo?
