Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates: Flexing America's Muscles in the Middle East Will Make Things Worse

Tuesday, September 30  |  6:45pm


Topic: Flexing America's Muscles in the Middle East Will Make Things Worse.


Aaron David Miller, V.P. for New Initiatives, Wilson Center & Fmr. U.S. Mideast Negotiator


Michael Doran, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution & Fmr. Senior Director, National Security Council

The disintegration of Iraq, Syria’s ongoing civil war, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the promise and peril of the Arab Spring...  What role should America play in the Middle East? For some, America’s restraint has been a sign of disciplined leadership. But for others, it has been a sign of diminished strength and influence. How do we strike a balance between our national interests, moral obligations, and the maintenance of world order? Are we simply recognizing the limitations of our power, or does this embattled region require a bolder, more muscular, American presence?
