Persistent challenges confront world politics and US policy in both the Middle East and East Asia. Issues ranging from US-Iranian relations to Russian penetration, Syrian and Yemeni
civil wars, Turkish and Saudi excesses and lack of a Palestinian agreement plague the region. The complicated future of US Chinese relations, ranging from military confrontation over the
South China Sea to trade and technology policy — plus concerns about nuclear armed North Korea — similarly create Asian uncertainties. We will review both situations and their complexities, prospects and dangers.
