The Trump administration has now revealed its Middle East strategy for all to see. The Europeans aren’t happy.
So far, at least, the United States has decided to focus on fighting extremism and checking Iran. The best way to achieve these aims, the White House has decided, is by deepening its previous reliance on its regional allies, Saudi Arabia and Israel, to the exclusion of just about everything else.
