Here, thanks to Paul Cobaugh, of Narrative Strategies, is a fairly simple (2015) graphic by Clint Watts of the Foreign Policy Research Institute, that might help us to better understand the situations in North Africa, the Middle East, South West Asia and South East Asia. My friend Tody Prudori (milnew.ca) notes that it doesn’t show the (several) Kurdish factions, and I, in my turn, would note that it doesn’t mention the festering sores in the Balkans and the Near East: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and Turkey.
