Gideon Rachman on the “undoing of Obama’s grand strategy”

Another fascinating article by Gideon Rachman in today’s FT on the potential “undoing of Obama’s grand strategy” with the situation in Syria. It seems Obama cannot win – by being cautious to get actively involved with a Syria conflict Obama faces being portrayed as weak, yet if he does step in “it will be a clear reversal of the grand strategy formed during his first term.”

Discussing the US’s planned “pivot to Asia” and the contest for power and influence between the US and China, Gideon wonders: “perhaps Mr Assad will do China another favour – drawing America ever deeper into the Middle Eastern morass.”
