This chapter discusses the failure of the U.S. to establish military presence and bases in the Middle East. This region has been the key area of rivalry between the traditional colonial empire of Britain and the new leasehold empire of the U.S. The U.S. was initially prepared to accept Britain's dominant position in the Middle East after the war, but it increasingly came to challenge this for commercial and strategic reasons. America's initial interests in the region involve providing military support for Israel and for security of oil supplies.

Keywords:   U.S, Middle East, military presence, military bases, Great Britain, Israel, oil supply
