    Setting aside the 1998 declaration of war on the west by Islamic radicals, the battlefields of Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, and now to a lesser extent Iraq that are a part of our response to this declaration of war, the internal and cross-border conflicts such as the Sunni, Shi'a, and Kurdish divisions within Iraq and the Kurdish and Turkish attacks upon each other, the Pakistani Taliban crossing into Afghanistan and other Pakistani militants launching an urban warfare style assault in Mumbai India, yes. I think there will be further war in the Middle East. Israel cannot allow itself to get boxed in. Iran is past looking aggressive and its leadership is all but asking for a preemptive strike by Israel. Hezbollah in Lebanon - funded by Iran - will factor into a retaliation against Israel, as will Hamas. The actions of Egypt, Jordan, and Syria are a little hard to predict, although each has a history of warring with Israel.
    There are also long-standing grievances between Iraq and Iran, which has been sending covert troops into Iraq for several years now.
    War exists in the Middle East in a complex and changing fashion. There will continue to be war in that region. It is important to note that Chinese persecution of Uighur Muslims, renewed tensions in the former Yugoslavia, Russia's recent expanionistic tendencies, and the unification of Al Qaeda and African radicals into Al Qaeda of the Arab Peninsula will serve to spread the wars of the Middle East to new continents.
