Donald Trump has enthusiastically endorsed virtually every foreign policy move made by Saudi Arabia, from doubling down on support for its war in Yemen, to endorsing its blockade of Qatar, to giving his blessing to Saudi maneuverings to change the character of a fragile political coalition in Lebanon. Add to this Saudi and US efforts to isolate Iran, possibly including stepped up military action against Iran or its allies in the region, yet another conflict in a region already suffering from multiple wars seems possible. How likely is a new Mideast war, and what changes in US policy are needed to make a new conflict less likely?

Bill Hartung is the Director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy.
