The United States foreign policy with Israel is a way for the United States to gain more power in the Middle East. This relationship has had its up and downs. The United States is able to support Israel, but also have a friendship with the Arab states, Israel’s main problem . The United States wanted to balance its growing interest in the Arab states and also its fellow ally Israel. The foreign policy and treaty that the United States had with Israel was more so a better idea in the past then in present time. Despite the downfall of the benefits from this policy, it still did its intended job . The United States has been trying to play peacemaker in the middle east (including the invasion of Iraq) whether its successful or not. The U. S. wanted to control expansion of the Soviet Union and believed this policy would ensure this. The U.S. also wanted to ensure that the industrialized countries had easy access to the petroleum sources that the Middle East had. The final reason for this foreign policy was to spread democracy throughout this territory and the Middle East. During the Cold war, when the Soviet Union was trying to take over and a large threat to America, creating an ally in the Middle East was high on the U.S’s. to do list. The U.S. didn’t want a country who imposed a threat to take over in the Middle East and set up a strong following there. The Middle East was a perfect place for the Soviet Union to expand to. This was the last thing that the United States wanted to happen. They slowly would gain control and become even more powerful than they previously were. Besides furthering causing problems there was not much the United States could do to prevent this, so they came up with a foreign policy with Israel. This was said to be the best idea. “One might argue that Israel was an asset during the Cold War. By serving as America’s proxy after 1967, it helped contain Soviet expansion in the region and inflicted humiliating defeats on

Foreign policy between the United States and China has never been smooth sailing. The relationship started off rocky with events such as the Peoples Republic and Tiananmen Square massacre and evolved into China being our biggest creditor and largest holder of U.S. debt (Alessi, Carin, and Zissis Pg. 1). Even though the United States aims for a strong, mutually enabling relationship with China, we are more realistically faced with a parasitic relationship, with China as the host.
