The September 11, 2001 attacks on the US kicked off nearly two decades of US warfare in the Greater Middle East. In the 1990s, the US had been at peace. How did the US become entangled in the longest wars in its history in this region? What have US military operations meant for those countries? We will go back before 9/11 to examine how the Cold War, Afghanistan, the Gulf War have shaped the modern Middle East and US policy. Then we will ask the central questions about the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, and the way they led to the current US campaigns against ISIL and the US war in Syria under Trump. We will consider political and social history as well as the military aspect. We will also look at the causes for Washington policy-making toward the region. Grading is based upon a class participation and attendance (mandatory) and on examinations.
