Is U.S. military policy to blame for the current instability in the Middle East? From a proxy war in Yemen to an ongoing civil war in Syria, a number of conflicts have shaken traditional alignments in the Middle East to their core.

Join New York Times bestselling author Andrew Bacevich for a discussion on what the U.S. can do to secure its interests in the region. Prior to becoming Professor Emeritus of International Relations and History at the Boston University Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies, Andrew served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. Through Andrew’s expertise in the topic, learn about the various traditional alliances in the Middle East and how American engagement has influenced decision making in the region.
