In Realist theory power, whether economic or military, is the “currency” of nation-states. Yet, when viewing developments in the MENA, this distinction fails to take into account the great influence of sub-national and non-state actors.

Among others, one such example is that of the Iranian backed political party Hezbollah, which operates within Lebanon.

The Trump Administration’s Middle East “Peace Plan,” has been in its “pre-launch” phase for nearly two years. The plan itself serves as a representation of Trump’s global foreign policy. This diplomatic strategy should come as no surprise to us as, after all, it is the first sentence of chapter two in the Art of the Deal. But does this method translate well for international relations?

In the Vet's Best Healthy Coat Shed and Itch Relief Dog Supplements 50 Chewable Tablets USA Made, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump remarked that "ISIS happened a number of years ago in a vacuum."
