The Cycle Continues
This book has demonstrated the importance of the U.S. sphere of intervention in the struggles that have defined Lebanon's recent history. It has argued that the United States's policy in Lebanon was always subordinated to U.S. goals in the Cold War and the Arab–Israeli conflict. It has shown that U.S. foreign policy changed drastically after the 1973 Arab–Israeli War, with Henry Kissinger beginning to work with Egyptian and even Syrian leaders to take steps toward resolving the Middle East conflict. It has also examined the U.S. reaction to the outbreak of the Lebanese Civil War in April 1975. The book concludes by noting that Lebanon has yet to escape from the vicious cycle of violence that has troubled the country over the years, as seen in Israel's invasion of Lebanon in 1978, 1982, and 2006, and that the United States vacillated between support for and mild opposition to Israel's actions.
