The Impending Failure of Western Diplomacy in the Middle East
The Impending Failure of Western Diplomacy in the Middle EastIn a previous monograph, I discussed the fallacy of US Diplomacy in Libya.Now I would like to expand the subject matter to include Western Nations andThe Middle East.Memo to Western World LeadersRe: Middle East TurmoilSubject: Don’t get happy.There are, no doubt, many who are secretively happy to see the turmoil in theMiddle East. Diplomatically, they may express their concerns, regrets, desire tohelp, compassion, support, and so on. Still, inside, they are embracing thewrong impressions. They secretively believe that this turmoil will bring about notmerely change in the Middle East, not merely a positive change in the MiddleEast, but a change that will result in truly favourable diplomatic and economicrelations.The problem arises from the fact that the Diplomacy of late falls into the followingcategories:1. Diplomatic relations with those with similar, agendas and common goals. Pro-forma Diplomatic Relations.2. Diplomatic relations with those with dissimilar agendas and common goals. Goal Oriented Diplomatic Relations.3. Diplomatic relations with those with dissimilar agendas and common goals. Expedient Diplomatic Relations.4. Diplomatic relations with those with dissimilar agendas and dissimilar goals. Tenuous Diplomatic Relations5. Anticipated diplomatic relations with those with dissimilar agendas and withdivergent goals. Now we have the need to find and engage in a mutually beneficialDiplomatic Agenda to accommodate those divergent goals.
