What is the US dilemma in the Middle East?

  • Post-colonial states across the Middle East are fragile, perfect conditions for Jihadism to take root and stir up sectarian hatreds.
  • Should the US step back from internal conflicts and let Jihadis entrench themselves?
  • Or should the US intervene, get sucked into regional conflicts, be unlikely to have any real impact on sectarian issues, and itself become a target?
