It is a well known fact that US foreign policy has not been kind to the region. The US has not operated as honest broker between itself and other Arab countries. Its "special" relationship with Israel has caused an imbalance of relations and distrust. This is aggravated further by the fact that Arab leaders are not united in their stance. Innocent civilians have bore the brunt of US and Israeli military power, coupled with repressive Middle Eastern regimes and you have a volatile mix of politics in a region that will remain unstable for a long time to come unless the US changes the way it conducts itself. The US and Israel need to take a serious hard look at their own fragile Democracies before they point fingers at others. The wars in the Middle East have devastated the region and there is no justifiable excuse for the massive amount of death and destruction.
