RD, End of Cold War and broke coffers.

The money that Israel gets is part of Camp David accords for the peace in Middle East.
Egypt also gets a hefty subsidy.

Now the empty coffers means the funds will reduce and choke off.

No one thinks Egypt will repeat the Nasser years attacks on Israel.

But Iran could.

Same rhetoric is being spewed by Iran that was common before 1948, 1956, and 1967 wars.

If someone tracks the wars, conflicts, coups since 1947 in Middle East/West Asia it would be quite fascinating.

Long drawn chaos from fall of Ottomans.

I take their briefing papers with a grain of salt, they predicted an apocalypse in Kuwait post Op Desert storm, the breakdown of monarchy in Abu Dhabi after SZ's passing. A good starting point would be any inter governmental comms between the UK and US that can be mined from wikileaks.

All information out there is suspect, the world today in terms of accuracy is more akin to the story of the blind men and the elephant and it is upon the reader to gather data from various places and arrive at his own truth and dimensions of the beast which ultimately may or may not align with facts. Memory in general is a repository of false information and societal memory waxes and wanes in such a synced up cycle as to render the entire data calling function confused ala mandela effect. And witht history revisionism occupying the time of the majority currently and in the forseeable future, who is to say that the historical truth of today may even resemble the truth taught later on about the same period.
As for the wrecking of middle east, kaplan in his revenge of geography states that it is so because the me has no actual borders which is why it stretches from morocco to the foothills of the himalayas and from the caucus to the arabian sea.
