The Map of the “New Middle East”

A relatively unknown map of the Middle East, NATO-garrisoned Afghanistan, and Pakistan has been circulating around strategic, governmental, NATO, policy and military circles since mid-2006. It has been causally allowed to surface in public, maybe in an attempt to build consensus and to slowly prepare the general public for possible, maybe even cataclysmic, changes in the Middle East. This is a map of a redrawn and restructured Middle East identified as the “New Middle East.”


The following map was prepared by Lieutenant-Colonel Ralph Peters. It was published in the Armed Forces Journal in June 2006, Peters is a retired colonel of the U.S. National War Academy. (Map Copyright Lieutenant-Colonel Ralph Peters 2006).
Although the map does not officially reflect Pentagon doctrine, it has been used in a training program at NATO’s Defense College for senior military officers. This map, as well as other similar maps, has most probably been used at the National War Academy as well as in military planning circles.

This map of the “New Middle East” seems to be based on several other maps, including older maps of potential boundaries in the Middle East extending back to the era of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson and World War I. This map is showcased and presented as the brainchild of retired Lieutenant-Colonel (U.S. Army) Ralph Peters, who believes the redesigned borders contained in the map will fundamentally solve the problems of the contemporary Middle East.

The map of the “New Middle East” was a key element in the retired Lieutenant-Colonel’s book, Never Quit the Fight, which was released to the public on July 10, 2006. This map of a redrawn Middle East was also published, under the title of Blood Borders: How a better Middle East would look, in the U.S. military’s Armed Forces Journal with commentary from Ralph Peters.5
It should be noted that Lieutenant-Colonel Peters was last posted to the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, within the U.S. Defence Department, and has been one of the Pentagon’s foremost authors with numerous essays on strategy for military journals and U.S. foreign policy.

It has been written that Ralph Peters’ “four previous books on strategy have been highly influential in government and military circles,” but one can be pardoned for asking if in fact quite the opposite could be taking place. Could it be Lieutenant-Colonel Peters is revealing and putting forward what Washington D.C. and its strategic planners have anticipated for the Middle East?

    Theres some controversy regarding Zac Goldsmith and the ‘child abuse inquiry’…

    ”the Government must establish a defining, properly resourced and all-encompassing inquiry, in which victims and the public can have confidence.” – Zac Goldsmith

    (do you people not think I don’t contemplate this!!!)

    This inquiry can only be a good thing (regardless of the reasons behind it… much like Snowden and the NSA/GCHQ leaks)…

    Whitewashes and cover-ups ONLY happen when the public allow it to happen… it’s up to Exaro, muckrakers and researchers to ensure this inquiry/investigation goes in the direction it’s needs to go in…

    Exposing British paedophilia may be ANOTHER way to expose the elites to the masses… I can ONLY support it (like Snowdens leaks… I CAN SAY WITH 100% CERTAINTY HE WAS NOT ACTING ALONE!!! there was ulterior motives, but I supported it because of people ‘waking up’)

    Ive NEVER wanted anything more than this inquiry… Im physically sick every morning cos of this paedo shit…

    I work at the garage where the BBC gets vehicles serviced, and one day a top BBC executive arrived early, and was talking about the middle east map being redrawn for israel.
    He went on that the homosexua; lobby had won a major victory in having homosexuality redefined, before it was seen by the world famous maudesly psychiatric hospital as a personality development disorder, but now was to be classed as normal, and its derivative pedophilia just sexually child oriented.
    One of the BBC top stars comdian Frankie howard had be arrested for watching boys play a school football match and playing with himself inside a raincoat with no pockets in, the BBC pulled strings to get him off and he had to see sex therapist Joyce Mc Dougall at the maudesley.
    This brought in rothschilds man peter mandelson who wrought certain changes, which were going OK until the exposed jimy saville which the BBC could not contain, they tried to say that as only girls could become pregnant it was OK to do boys, but the flood gates were opened and the savile fiasco showed he had ben raping both on an almost daily basis
