This paper concerns the underlying dynamic of the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in the Middle East. It will seek to explain the quest to proliferation in terms of the interconnectivity and the region, the motivations of the major regional powers, and local perceptions as to the nature of security threats. Finally, the paper will discuss the implications of proliferation for U.S. policy toward the region that may require a shift in that policy.
