World War I was started because the balkans was this big powder keg ready to explode. And it exploded.

World War II was continuation of WWI technically WWI never ended and WWII is WWI.

The ottoman empire fell. The british just carved up a bunch of land in the middle east seperating people.

Bush starts his war on terror.

Iraq could spilt up into a 3 way civil war at any moment.

Israel invades Lebanon.

Israel could invade Syria.

Syria and Iran are backing Hezzbollah.

This is a powder keg trying to find its fuse.

That would require an Arab leader with great stature and an Arab nation with an industry comparable to most countries in the West; two main factors that are lacking in the Middle East right now. Saddam somewhat tried to pull it off after he invaded Kuwait and he was quickly contained.

Besides, the biggest military forces in the World are the U.N. Security Council and mostly all traditionnal allies of the West. The only Middle East country that compares is Saudi Arabia, which depends heavily on the West.

I'd be more concerned about Pakistan and India get it on with nuclear weapons. They're respectively the 6th and 2nd most populous countries in the World. Their refugees populations would disrupt neighborhood countries to no end. Since China is very close to both nations, it could hardly stand by without doing anything.

Turkey.

The turks do not want the kurds in Iraq to have there own country. They sent troops to the turkish-iraqi border during the invasion.

And then Egypt.

Well, it wasn't JUST the Balkans, but I can see where you're coming from. I'll read over my history notes and then come back with an informed opinion. :)

Turkey bended backward just to get accepted in the European Union. They've also cut deals with the US to allow American troops more flexibility when invading Irak.

Egypt isnt a big threat. Israel alone could probably take them on and win.

Turkey is not in the EU just yet. They still consider Cyprus a rouge turkish state. Yes they allowed U.S. troops for launching the invasion but that doesn't mean they will come to the U.S. side. They are dead set against any kind of Kurdish nation if Iraq ever breaks up.
