So then I guess the question is why bother with them at all in the first place? It seems hopeless and useless although I guess it could be worse if we didn't. I'd say we should've focused on just staying tight with Israel and helping them and forgetting the other mid east countries (other than taking them down if need be like we may do with Iran).
On anotehr note, I heard there's a ton of oil actually under parts of Israel, like either the Dead sea or Red sea or maybe both.
