Does the U.S. have its hand full in tackling world crisis?-3
Now we go to the old ones that keeps on propping up and we are about to open a new one in Africa. You the one in the Middle East that has not been resolved for the last 66 years and will not be resolved anytime soon since both the parties distrust each other and there are elements on both sides who don’t want peace between them. Israel and Palestinian officials have been trying to find peace with the help of the United States but for a few people aside, the U.S. public has more important things to do since on theory the U.S. don’t want to take sides but do take sides with Israel in this case and thus they are not neutral arbitrators and this just hinders the process of negotiation because if the arbitrator is not neutral then you cannot trust its judgment and decisions. But the Palestinians are stuck with the U.S. since it is the only power that can persuade both sides to find a negotiated settlement but the world is getting tired now with this issue despite human suffering because both sides don’t budge on issues that are important to them. And with the Chinese increasingly asserting itself in the South China Sea and are in conflict with countries like Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam and Japan, the U.S. is trying to keep the situation calm with angering anyone but all this is not helping because right now despite all the treaties it is hard to believe that the U.S. will risk war with China. And it does not help the U.S. that the above mentioned countries look up to the United States to help them in case conflict breaks out between China and any other country mentioned.
