This memorandum examines Soviet political, economic and idealogical activity in the Middle East and views it as suggesting interest in a regional frontier which will serve both security and expansion functions. The Soviets appear to have added to their security by projecting their power, particularly military power, into the frontier zone however, the price has been high in political and economic terms as well as in its potential for conflict. The author concludes that, as things stand now, Soviet expansion in the region has not conveyed as substantial measure of power nor increased Soviet security to a significant degree.
