More Than Democracy

Originally released in a report from March of 2010, Byron King frames the future of the Middle East in terms of ideology.  The intriguing aspect of Mr. King's report is that it was released nine months before the uprisings in Egypt. King suggests that the events in the Middle East are based on an Islamic divide between Sunni and Shia ideology. He also claims possessing Saudi Arabia is the end game and that Iran is pumping money into key areas surrounding Saudi Arabia in an attempt to choke off oil exports to the West.
