Rising powers like Russia and China are changing the power dynamic in the geopolitics of the Middle East and Asia. Despite America’s unquestionable military superiority, domestic and international forces may be influencing a trend of gradual pullback, especially compared to the first two decades after the Cold War. At the same time, millions of people across the Arab world are fed up with U.S. dominance and support of client states.
Some argue the outlook resembles 19th and 20th century dynamics where power is not concentrated in a single global hegemony and increasingly assertive states scramble for resources, territory, and influence.
