However, the connections between French and American interventions in North Africa and West Asia run deeper than the last two years. The above timeline does not attempt to include all American and French interventions in the Middle East/Northern Africa over the last two centuries, but rather to draw connections between those interventions that stand out -- whether as known as the \"War on Terror\" or as forgotten as the US interventions in Lebanon. Though there have been over 200 US interventions, this snapshot aims not to tell all of their stories, but to depict the spiraling effects of every intervention. These effects cross over borders, continents, and through different intervening powers. The situation is as chaotic as the overlapping arrows on the timeline. For this reason, depiction is not meant to educate on the details of all of the connections, but to paint a picture of the chaos. Certain interventions have spurred more events than others. The two that most stand out are the 1953 CIA coup in Iran that reinstated the Shah, and the \"special\" relationship between the US and Israel.
