Today’s Middle East is embroiled in several civil wars that have destroyed the fabric of four regional states – with the wreckage littering the landscape like shattered glass.
The region remains in the grips of dangerous interstate rivalries, manifesting themselves in the proxy wars that show no sign of ending. In the Gulf, Saudi Arabia and Iran continue their war of words and some suggest that war between these regional heavyweights is a possibility.
Professor James Russell, Associate Professor of National Security in the Naval Postgraduate School’s Department of National Security, will share his perspectives on the region’s implosion and the challenges this creates for U.S. strategy and foreign policy. The views presented at our luncheon are his own.
