Abstract

The disintegration of North African regimes – which to date appeared impossible to oppose – is greatly changing certain geopolitical balances. Since the beginning of the ISAF mission (2001), the attention of Western countries had been focused on the mountains in Afghanistan and on the international mission and coalition to defeat the Taliban and the bases of international terrorism; however with the announcement by the U.S. to retreat from AfPak, Washington’s military centre is moving to the Middle East and Africa.
