Abstract:

This report assesses the relationships between three key Middle Eastern states-Egypt, Syria and Jordan-and the Gulf following the 1991 war with Iraq. The report examines the current status of these countries and highlights points of vulnerability in each state that could lead to future internal and regional instability affecting the Gulf. Other regional reports developed in this project assess the Arab Gulf states themselves including Iraq and Azerbaijan and the Central Asian countries. The overall project objective is to provide a political-military assessment of security prospects in the Gulf over the next several years, challenges the U.S. military is likely to encounter as it supports U.S. national objectives in the region, and the implications for future U.S. security planning.
