This edition of the MES Insights published by the Middle East Studies (MES) program of the Marine Corps University contains the following article: "The Eastern Mediterranean Gas Forum (EMGF): Shifting the Regional Balance of Power from Land to Sea" by Michael Wihbey. From the Document: "The recent creation of the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Forum, EMGF (HQ: Cairo) marks the need for a new set of US national security assumptions and calculations, away from longstanding air and ground contingencies in the Persian Gulf to another energy-rich, tension-laden region, namely the Eastern Mediterranean. Stretching from the Aegean Sea to the Suez Canal, this potential conflict zone is characterized by various maritime and naval configurations and burgeoning oil and gas assets."
