One [interpretation] is that [Pompeo's comment on the status of Golan Heights] relates to the content of the Trump peace plan ... The other is that it relates to what will happen if the Trump peace plan is not accepted.
Some of [America's declining level of commitment] is driven by the fact by that the Middle East is less important than it used to be, partly because of energy markets, and new opportunities in East Asia and the America. The opportunity costs of being deeply invested in the Middle East are rising, and that’s just an objective fact.
With adversaries, Trump’s underlying unpredictability and lack of understanding of how to use the tools of American power will now be exacerbated by the lack of much in the way of experienced and judicious foreign policy advice and implementation ... So I think there’s added room for the kind of misjudgment and misinterpretation (on both sides) that leads small incidents to escalate into major international crisis.
