GUEST,Colwyn Dane Middle East Problems (98* d) RE: Middle East Problems 14 Oct 00


What's new in the world except the history you don't know?
The Near East & Middle East countries have certainly had far more than their fair share of conflicts.

Tracking back to Desert Shield/Storm:

When Iraw invaded Kuwait many Palestinians living in Kuwait gave active support to Iraq.

I could argue that Desert Storm ended prematurely because if
Iraq had been occupied then perhaps "two cooks could have been hit by a rolling stone"
- land south of the Eurphrates and bordering on Jordan in the west and Kuwait in the east - could have been given
to the Palestinians as a reward/punishment? They would have had enough oil to lubricate their economy
and perhaps the confrontation with Israel would have eased.
But of course the displaced Iraqis would then have an axe to grind and so the torch would be taken up by another cause.
Ah well back to the design board!

Jerusalem should be, like Tangiers before, administered as an International Zone by,
perhaps, Israel, Saudi Arabia and The Vatican; with the UN to play referee.

A theory is flown and others will be launched so as to test the airworthiness of the original.
