When WWI ended, the Ottoman Empire was carved up by the victors. Three treaties laid the groundwork for what we are seeing today: They are the
Sykes-Picot agreement (1916), the Treaty of Sevres (1920) and the Treaty of Lausanne (1923).
There was no concern regarding the people, their religions, their heritage or their historical homelands. The borders were carved up in a way to
facilitate western European interests
, primarily oil, and puppet governments instituted to facilitate those French, Russian, Greek, American
and British interests.
That's how the ME soup was created and the people in those regions eventually fought back, fomenting crisis after crisis and causing push-back from
the West. Chomsky is right as to recent events, but the seeds were sown almost a century ago and now we're reaping the results.
