The war in Lebanon and the Iraq-Iran war while producing negative consequences for these nations, conceal some very positive signs of political development towards greater stability of states in the region. These wars have accentuated a trend towards greater national consolidation of the Arab states individually, with regional arrangements, such as the Gulf Cooperation Council being the response to collectively perceived threats to physical and economic security, rather than a stage in the evolution of the Arab or Islamic consciousness. Arab regimes have not been overthrown, rather they have demonstrated a remarkable capacity to adapt.
