January 17: The United States, the Cold War, and the Middle East
The United States emerged from World War II as the dominant power in the world. Yet the bright hopes for a peaceful world rapidly vanished with the onset of the Cold War between the US and Soviet Union. The Cold War influenced American policy in the Middle East throughout the 1950’s as the United States attempted to play the role of stabilizing the region. Ongoing issues in Iran, Egypt, and the Arab-Israeli conflict, led the Americans to begin rethinking their policy in the Middle East.
