THE ARABIAN GULF SECURITY REASONS AND RESULTS

Auther : By: Dr. Abdulla Al-Enezi

By the end of the Second World War, all security measures taken by the allies in the Gulf failed. These measures were taken on the basis that security in the Middle East and in the Gulf area is threatened by invaders outside the area. Baghdad Pact declined in 1958, and after the UK relinquished control of Middle East to thr USA, the Shah of Iran fled in 1979. Then came the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990 to shutter all the USA hypotheses of stability and security in the Gulf area.

Therefore, the USA began to draw a new strategy to protect its interests and support its allies in the Gulf area. This new strategy depended on deploying its navy in the Gulf, seeking military facilities from the Gulf countries and isolating both Iraq and Iran.

Gulf countries in general and Kuwait in particular, are doing their best to cope with any prospected aggression and take security measures such as depending on GCC, Damascus Truce and other pacts with USA, UK, France, Russia and China.

Thus, the GCC countries concentrate on military regulations and cooperate with foreign powers to confront threats they are apt to. By depending on these foreign powers and ignoring neighbouring countries, they create another security problems. In addition, these countries forget the internal problems, which are more dangerous than the external ones, yet, they ignore and marginise them.
