Not only the ME, but South America and Africa. I used to think that those people just were uncontrollable and couldn't understand why they couldn't get it together. Then I learned about how often the CIA and USA interferes with the governments. Those poor people in those countries - so many people have died because of US meddling.

Just like with every country. The big difference is that every country isn't claiming to be so good that they interfere with the affairs of other countries.

Right now, the Bush admin is destroying any good that the US stood for. But the foreign policy has been a thorn in the side of peace for too long.
