U.S. Strategy: Rebalancing Global Energy between Europe, Russia, and Asia and U.S. Security Policy in the Middle East and the Gulf

The war in Ukraine has already shown how dangerous it is for the U.S. to assume that it can rebalance its forces to one region and count on a lasting peace or detente in others. It now is all too clear that U.S. strategy must continue to focus on Europe as well as China. What is less clear is the extent to which the Ukraine War is an equal warning that the U.S. must have a truly global strategy and one that continues to focus on other critical regions like the Middle East. 


The sudden escalation of the Ukraine crisis into a major regional conflict and the need for political and diplomatic support in the UN as well as for sanctions are warnings that much of the U.S. success in deterrence and defense lies in creating long-term global diplomatic and political support as well as true and lasting strategic partnerships.


Ideally, that support will prevent or limit a conflict as well as decrease the risks of any confrontation with a major power like Russia or China. It will also create strategic partners in every region that can limit the need for the U.S. to deploy its own forces or support them if a conflict does occur, even though this inevitably means that U.S. strategy must be to find the best way to share the burden rather than shift it to other states.
