Abstract:

Understanding of the Soviet Role in the Middle East is crucial to U. S. interests in the region. Key to this understanding is the decades-long relationship between the peoples of the region and the Kremlins representatives, a relationship characterized by clear regional advocacy of self-interests and repeated examples of area independence countering Soviet desires. While Gorbachev was to repudiate many of the unsuccessful Soviet policies of the past, the latest Gulf War between Iraq and the U.S.-led Coalition forces once again confirms the long history of regional rejection of Kremlin Middle East goals and interests.
