Did you actually read the whole thing? If so, could you please summarize the most important points for the readers here because I'm sure not everyone has the time to go over it cover to cover.

ive quickly brushed over some of it,

its very USA based, as in it talks about every country and how it sees the US's relationship with them panning out. it gives 2 or 3 alternative scenarios as to what could happen in the middle east countries.

one thing it kind of misses out on is the Nuclear tensions which are building at the moment.

lots of info about the demographics and religious aspects though.

i will post more when i get a chance to read it in more detail. Thought it would be interesting for anyone who has an interest in middle east issues.

it gives good insight into the religious/government powers, especially in like iran, etc whom many dont know much about under the surface.
