¿Está Akkad provocando por sí misma una situación para ser atacada?


Explanation:
Una opción.

Set up = provocar, causar

Al ser una región (de Mesopotamia), puede decirse "colocarse en posición de ser atacada" sólo en el sentido figurado, pues es lógico que no se puede cambiar de posición, por eso elegí "provocando", como una opción de phr. verb.

Con la variante: ¿en la que pueda ser atacada? Mucho depende de lo que hay antes en el texto. ¿Lo provoca a propósito o sin darse cuenta?
