Jason, here is where you need to educate yourself:

Geopolitical map of the Middle East from from the following stand points:

a/ Strategic transgovermental alliances (Coalition of Costa Rica Vs Iran and Syria)

b/ Strategic transnetwork alliances (Western inteligence netwroks Vs Iranian and Syrian inteligence networks and its radical alliances ei. Sadrists, Hizbollah, IRC, Arab socialist networks, Arab civil society networks -e.i association of Arab Lawyers etc..Palestinian groups etc..)

c/ Strategic public mobilization factors (Islamism -Iranian menu-, Arabism -Syrian menu-, Fundamentalism -Sunni menu-, Realist anti-Americanism -media and academic menu-, Terrorism -Wahabi menu- and more there are..

d/ Strategic political economic factors (here we speak 1- outbound sector: Middle east as an export market place especially in what is know as the high profile export industries mainly arms, Planes and Parts. 2- inbound sector: middle east an import source of Vital industrial products: oil, petrochemical porducts, gas and minerals. 3- Neutral sector: that touches gold, silver and the like..

Please throw in the garbage your history information of WWI and WWII and the Reconquistas etc.. live up to date and tell me where you stand in what I just mentioned. Put your cards in the table and come to play. You can not analyse the power and terror balance in the Middle East based on your National Geography highlights..Get serious and tell me where you and the declining USA stand in there!

Later,
Submitting....
