US Involvement In The Middle East Issues

0 Comment

The Middle East is suffering due to a countless number of difficulties like insufficiency of reliable democracy, political instability, uneven development of social and economic issues, the clash of globalization, to name just a few (Fawcett). Among all these drawbacks which this particular region of the world has been facing, the most dominating one for both present and future seems to be the imbalance of power.
The imbalance of power is the root cause of the ongoing conflict between Palestine and Israel and is certainly the most important problem for the Middle East. There has been lack of progress in reaching a justified solution to the conflict between Israel on one side and Palestine, Syria and Lebanese on the other side. An appropriate balance of power reflects a reduction in the wars followed by an increase in the endeavor to resolve issues peacefully (El-Hasan). The equally effect of nuclear deterrence between the US and the Soviet Union explains four decades of Cold War relative stability between them. But there were proxy wars between the super-power rivals and interventions to crush small states (El-Hasan).
Despite the existing international laws like the United Nations Charter and other significant things like the interdependence of commerce along with ecology, there remain chaotic relations among the nation-states (El-Hasan). Due to this imbalance of power, the powerful states have the privileged to dictate the weak ones (El-Hasan). The developed states enjoy the authority to oppress the less developed ones (El-Hasan). Had there been a genuine balance of power, the states with power would have never got the courage to use force against the territory and the political sovereignty of the less privileged (El-Hasan).
