The First Arabian War was a major armed conflict in the Middle East between October and January of 1981-1982. The war was fought between an alliance of allied Arab nations, led by Egypt-Syria, against the US-backed nations of the region. Desires for a united Arab world and increasingly anti-Western belief in the Middle East led to an alliance between Egypt-Syria, Iraq, and Iran. Using updated modern weaponry, the nations of the Arabian Alliance launched their invasions in the early morning of October 12, 1981.

The Arabian Alliance initially had major successes. Egypt made gains into Syria, and the Iranian Air Force dominated Saudi Arabia as their armies pushed across the deserts and captured Riyadh. UN peacekeeping missions were blocked by the Russians, while the American war-weary Congress had little wish to join another conflict during the withdrawal from Argentina. The failure to neutralize Turkey in the initial offense resulted in the Egypt-Syrian offensive stalling and eventually being pushed back. In Saudi Arabia, overzealous soldiers and insurgents began to assault American bases in the nation, resulting in Congress authorizing an intervention.

The American task force saved Saudi Arabia, and pushed out Iraqi and Iranian forces. Turkish and Palestinian forces had knocked out Syria and forced the fighting back onto Egyptian territory. Recognizing their defeat, the Arabian Alliance came to the negotiating table.

Egypt-Syria was dismantled, war reparations were forced to be paid, and the Suez Canal was now regulated by UN peacekeepers and essential a UN controlled zone. The war led to an even greater rise of anti-Western feelings in the Middle East, ensuring a second conflict was on the horizon. The war resulted in oil becoming limited, causing an economic slowdown across much of the West, while the economy in Russia boomed to their investments in their large oil reserves.
