Abstract : This paper discusses security problems of the Persian Gulf. The genuine, long-term Gulf security remains idealized due to different political and economic interests of every country in the Gulf States. The United States is also discussed with skepticism, because while the U.S. intervented and liberated the Kuwaitis during the Persian Gulf war, it did not provide assistance to the Afghans, the Kurds and other deserving peoples around the world.
