INTERNATIONAL. In the end, it is unlikely that the territorial Islamic State can survive. The truth is that Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia are all waiting for the U.S. to solve the problem with air power and a few ground forces. These actions will not destroy IS, but they will break the group's territorial coherence.

BAHRAIN. The "increasingly deregulated and competitive economic environment is facilitating rapid growth in business development within the private sector."
UAE. An advisory body to the UAE government has suggested that the central bank review the country's currency peg to the U.S. dollar, but local bankers said any change to the peg remained very unlikely for the foreseeable future.
