Jan 14, 2010, 14:50 ET from Hudson Institute

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For over half a century, the United States has established itself as the Middle East's dominant "strong horse." Yet, with war raging in Afghanistan and Iraq -- and the possibility of conflict with the Islamic Republic of Iran -- does America have the resolve and the resources to maintain its status?
