  6. Conclusion

According to the Collins World Dictionary, stability refers to the quality or state of being stable, especially in resistance to deterioration, displacement, or change. It is the constancy of purpose, order, or character. Due to the vastness of energy resources, especially oil, in the Middle East and the Gulf block, which form the backbone of the western economies, involvement and influence with the aim of maintain stability in the region has become paramount more so for the US and other European super powers such as Russia, UK, ad France. The US has for decades been involved in affairs of the Middle East with the aim of ensuring stability, democracy, and fostering economic relationships with countries in this region. However, the main aim of the US involvement and influence does not seem to be stability or democracy, but rather, control of the rich oil resource from this region (Shah).

The US or any other Western super power should not be directly involved in the affairs of the Middle East and the Gulf region because their involvement is for their own economic benefit but not for the persons living there.
