Lebanon Watch

The oil-rich lands of the Middle East sit at the crossroads of civilization, abutting Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Ongoing challenges, including Iran’s nuclear program; Saudi Arabia’s economic transformation; rapid population growth; conflict and upheaval in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan; and a changing climate are shaking geopolitics far beyond the region’s sun-scorched lands.

In this space, we will chronicle and assess the events that are shaping the region as well as discuss what role America and its allies should play in the twenty-first century.
