Weary from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the US appeared to be reducing its presence in the Middle East — that is, until the US carried out a series of air strikes in Iraq resulting in the killing of Qassem Soleimani. In this discussion, Wasser and Nagl will home in on the precise nature of US interests in the Middle East and the military requirements to preserve those interests. Wasser is a senior policy analyst at the RAND Corporation.
