The Unstable Middle East
A review of seven Mideast conflicts
The dynamics of power politics in the Middle East have drastically changed. There are many conflicting and contrasting historic, economic, geo-political and strategic forces in this part of the world. With the elimination of strong autocrats like Saddam Hussein, Moammar al-Gaddafi; the mauling of Bashar al-Assad in the bloody Syrian civil war; the blockade of Qatar and the US policy tilt towards Saudi Arabia and allies, the entire region is in a state of flux. Unless some drastic measures are taken, the various conflicts in the region will become ever more intractable and exact a horrifying toll in blood and massive economic dislocation. The continuing severity of these crises and their repercussions will depend on whether or not the combatants assume a realistic posture, or new leadership rise and commit to finding equitable solutions that can endure. We must keep in mind though that the turmoil we experienced in 2019 may further intensify in 2020 because of the continuing global crisis of leadership and the challenges posed to the global order that was established in the wake of World War II.
