The Interventions and Rivalries of the Super Powers in the Middle East
- The Middle East has been a major centre of world affairs; a strategically, economically, politically, culturally, and religiously sensitive area. Moreover, the world has become a far scarier place in recent years, largely because of threats and instability emerging from the Middle East and nearby regions. Conflicts in the Middle East are a recurring feature in international politics and superpowers also actively engage in these conflicts. This paper attempted to find the factors that have made the conflicts in the Middle East more intense. It argued that superpowers interventions and rivalries in the regional conflicts in Middle East often intensify crises instead of easing them. It also argued that the weakness of international organizations, especially UN, failed miserably in prevailing peace in Middle-East, resulting in protracted and pervasive conflicts.
