U.S. Mideast strategic interests and challenges

President Joe Biden has made his first major foreign policy decision, and while it is not focused on the Middle East, but rather on a region adjacent to it, the regional implications are evident. In ordering all American forces out of Afghanistan by September 11, Biden laid out a rationale based on both ends and means. American attention must turn to China and to a lesser extent Russia, and by virtue of priorities away from secondary spots including the Middle East; diplomacy must have primacy over military involvement. What is the signal to be received by Biden’s audience from Tehran to Jerusalem to the capitals of NATO member states? Has the United States changed its perception of interests and challenges in our neighbourhood?
