GMA 400 - Senior Seminar Research

The United States is currently involved three conflicts in the Middle East. The outcome of these conflicts did not go for what the United States originally wanted. The Question is why does the United States still keeps finding itself in the same situation that it did not originally wanted? The recurring elements that have continue to plaque the United States in the Middle East is from fear and hubris. The case studies are the Soviet Afghan War, the Iraq War in 2003, and the current Yemen Civil War were the United States is currently supporting Saudi Arabia’s intervention in the country. The cost from these mistakes are that the United States reputation is damage, resources are wasted, and US citizens are harmed.
