It’s unthinkable that any other great power would get away without any backlash from either Islamic powers, Islamic civil society, or jihadist groups. And that is one of the biggest puzzles in foreign policy worth probing.
Trump’s critics appear to believe that backing a Marxist splinter group aligned with the anti-American, pro-Iranian axis in its war against a NATO ally is sound policy.
Trump was right to challenge the foreign policy status quo in Syria. He’s wrong to create a similar future problem by placing troops in Saudi Arabia.
Moving American troops from Syria would be perhaps the most far-sighted thing Trump does as president, and would benefit the United States in the years to come.
Given the complexity and intensity of the existing U.S.-Israel alliance, it seems unlikely that a pact of this nature would alter the dynamic tremendously. It may, however, alter the behavior of Israel’s neighbors.

Cyber attacks are the future of warfare. By launching one against Iran, Trump has increased the threat to Iran without plunging the United States into war.
The Western dependence on Middle Eastern energy supplies is ever diminishing. Foreign policy should reflect that strategic reality.
As both the Europeans and Democrats seek to thwart Trump’s pressure on Tehran, Obama’s deceptions demonstrate the illegitimacy of a deal that must be scrapped.
Instead of reducing the chance of conflict with Iran, a policy of ‘maximum pressure’ only increases the threat another needless U.S. war in the Middle East.
