Oil, the Persian Gulf, and grand strategy : contemporary issues in historical perspective by Ian O Lesser( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two distinct and competing traditions, the autarkic-continental and the liberal-maritime, have played a key role in shaping grand strategy toward economically vital regions such as the Persian Gulf. These two traditions have historically differed in three main ways: how they view the overseas supply of resources (liability vs. asset), their preferred strategy of access to vital regions (continental vs. maritime), and their impetus for action (geopolitical vs. vital interests). The author reaches a number of conclusions with implications for U.S. policy: (1) effective strategy toward the Persian Gulf and its oil resources has always been developed in the context of broader, grand-strategic objectives; (2) resource-related needs and objectives have tended to be determined by broader strategic aims, not vice versa; (3) the coalition approach to Persian Gulf security that has characterized U.S. strategy since the Carter Administration is within the Anglo-American liberal-maritime tradition regarding access to economically vital areas; (4) the perception of the Persian Gulf as an area of vital interest has remained constant and is not simply the result of its oil production; and (5) the rise of powerful regional actors (e.g., Iran, Iraq) is new, but it does not mean that U.S. freedom of action will be constrained or that the need for military power will be reduced

Investigation report : formal investigation into the circumstances surrounding the downing of Iran Air Flight 655 on 3 July 1988 by William M Fogarty( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The downing of civilian Iran Air Flight 655 on 3 July was a tragic and regrettable accident and, as is so often the case in a combat environment, there were a number of contributing factors. It is important to put the events of that day in the local context. The U.S. Government committed naval forces to the convoying of American flag tankers in the spring of 1987. From the onset, the Administration emphasized that while our forces could achieve this mission, it would involve risks and uncertainties. This prediction was borne out by several incidents, e.g., the indiscriminate laying of Iranian mines, the Bridgeton explosion, the STARK tragedy, the SAMUEL B. ROBERTS striking a mine, the capture of the Iran Ajar, Iranian firing on U.S. helos, and the incidents of April 18 when Iranian ships and aircraft attempted to damage U.S. units. Throughout this period and especially in the wake of the above events, the Government of Iran issued inflammatory statements threatening retaliation against American personnel and interests. Reinforcing the high level of tension, both Baghdad and Teheran have continued to attack unarmed merchant ships, the former with aircraft and the latter with small boats, ships and aircraft. Iranian assaults have been largely concentrated in the southern gulf and on occasion have taken place in the presence of foreign warships. (kr)

Beyond the Arab awakening : a strategic assessment of the Middle East( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...The conference featured six panels on topics vital to U.S. security, though the conversations often ranged much further. We began with a discussion of Syria, where civil war and the Asad regime's brutal crackdown have left tens of thousands dead and millions displaced. Iran, fearing the loss of its closest Arab ally, is doubling down on Asad's regime, while the violence risks spreading to Iraq, Lebanon, and other neighbors. The next two panels focused on Iran. Iran's nuclear program was the focus of the first panel, which addressed the risks and effectiveness of sanctions, military force, negotiations, and other policy choices available to the United States. The panel that followed provided context for the nuclear issue and for the U.S.-Iran relationship in general, explaining Iran's fractious domestic politics and discussing its impact on foreign policy. The fourth panel examined the changes wrought by the Arab Awakening, still underway. In Egypt, long a close U.S. security partner, the hopes that followed the initial uprisings have not yet been met, the economy remains in crisis and the political trajectory is both rocky and uncertain. The fifth panel turned to Iraq. Once the focus of U.S. policy in the region, several speakers argued that the United States is not now devoting sufficient attention to Iraq, where violence and the Maliki government's power grabs risk spinning out of control and igniting broader unrest. The final panel brought the themes of the conference together, highlighting risks to U.S. goals and suggesting ways that U.S. diplomacy and military power could more effectively promote U.S. interests. The pages that follow include summaries of the sessions involved as well as the full text of Dr. Flournoy's keynote address..."--Abstract, page 2

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On September 11-12, 2013, the Saban Center at Brookings and the United States Central Command brought together analysts, officers and policymakers to discuss both new and enduring challenges facing the United States in the Middle East. The conference explored the upheaval in key countries of the region resulting from the Arab uprisings, as well as longstanding conflicts and challenges. The panel discussions began with a consideration of the ongoing conflict in Syria, and of President Obama's embrace of multinational diplomacy to resolve the Asad regime's alleged use of chemical weapons. The next panel focused on Iran's new president and how Hassan Rouhani might change Iran's diplomatic relations with the region and the world. The final panel brought several themes of the conference together by examining how regional actors view these developments, as well as how they view the United States' role in the region
