US Strategy In The Gulf

Anthony Cordesman/Center For Strategic And International Studies – At the same time, the US now faces new major uncertainties in the Southern Gulf. The wave of political unrest affecting the entire Middle East has affected both US efforts to cooperate with the Southern Gulf states in dealing with Iran, and efforts to deal with terrorism and violent extremists. The most critical examples to date are Bahrain – the headquarters of the US Fifth Fleet, and Yemen. Sunni-Shi’ite tension in Bahrain has reached the level of open violence, and progress towards a peaceful and stable solution has failed to materialize so far. Yemen seems likely to pass from a declining near-dictatorship to years of instability
