What Biden wanted in the Middle East — and what he actually got?

No Comments

There are huge gaps between what Biden set out as his goals for his trip last week to the Middle East and what he actually accomplished.

He showed up to Israel, the occupied Palestinian territory, and Saudi Arabia with an agenda focused on countering the influence of China, Russia, and Iran in the Middle East. He said he wanted to strengthen strategic partnerships to make “a consequential region of the world” more stable.

And while addressing high oil prices, in part stemming from the Ukraine war, wasn’t central to the stated goals, it was an ever-present subtext of this trip.
