Let us split it into its components:
- Is US policy in the M-E "noble"?
- Is US policy in the M-E good in some moral terms or other?
- Is US policy in the M-E good for the interest of the US government and/or
- Is US policy in the M-E good for the interest of the US?
I am inclined to answer "no" to *all* of those questions, but I do not
think one's answer must necessarily be one and the same to all of them.
