The Middle East is certainly the nexus of turmoil for a long time to come --
with shifting players, but the same game: upheaval. I think we will be
confronting militant Islam -- particularly fallout from the Iranian
revolution -- and religion will once more, as it has in our own more
distant past -- play a role at least as standard-bearer in death and mayhem.
