After spending decades and billions of dollars training Arab armies, many argue that the time has come for the United States to turn its back on the Middle East. But the price of abandoning the region to the likes of Iran, Hezbollah, al Qaeda, and ISIS will be high. The US must radically rethink its engagement with Arab armed forces.
Join AEI’s Kenneth Pollack and Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland for a conversation addressing the urgent question of how to better train Arab armies, and a discussion on Dr. Pollack’s new book, “Armies of Sand: The Past, Present, and Future of Arab Military Effectiveness”, which addresses the factors that contribute to Arab military ineffectiveness.
