Deletion[edit]

I sibject this page for deletion. It makes sense to open a category on middle eastern conflicts instead, not a template. This is a very limited info template (just compare it to List of modern conflicts in the Middle East or List of conflicts in the Middle East), and it would be very hard to synchronize it with relevant pages when adding information to wikipedia.Greyshark09 (talk) 18:36, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Since it was decided to keep it, i would just put categories for periods instead of few modern conflicts, since it is not possible to include all conflicts since ancient times.Greyshark09 (talk) 21:50, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Consolidation[edit]

The template is now consolidated in accordance with the page List of modern conflicts in the Middle East. Editors are welcome to assist.Greyshark09 (talk) 18:02, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Sudan and other North African countries do not belong to Middle East (West Asia)[edit]

There is some confusion in Western media about this, but Middle East is roughly corresponding West Asia, while North Africa is a separate region. There was an artificial term "Greater Middle East", which tried to integrate North Africa, West Asia and Central Asia, but it has largely fell into disuse in the last decade (it was also very English World-centric, so wasn't in use anywhere else).Greyshark09 (talk) 21:26, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
