Abstract:

For the last decade, U.S. policy in the Persian Gulf has been shaped by the Gulf War. With the cease-fire between Iran and Iraq in place and an end to open hostilities in the region, a review of the U.S. national interests in the Persian Gulf and policies aimed at protecting those interests may be in order. The purpose of this study is to identify current U.S. national interests in the Persian Gulf examine the problems which developed as a result of U.S. ties with the Shah of Iran and what that experience implies for future policy identify threats to Persian Gulf interests examine available options for protecting those interests and recommend the policy which best serves that purpose.
