"Your right...those bloody Iranians, fighting with Iraq."

My point was that the countries the West has alliances with has been largely driven by a choice between the countries that haven't outright rejected the West and walking away completely.

The rest of your points go on to demonstrate just how complex Middle Eastern diplomacy is. I'm not saying the US actions are right or wrong (as there are examples of both) - I am saying that there is an argument for intervention/alliances with countries that do not meet international conventions for justice/human rights etc as the alternative is often worse.
