These are also going on in Africa and Asia. They don't get much spotlight in the West and in their news media.
The rich and powerful in the West are heavily dependent on the supply of oil and stability in the region. These powerful groups have powerful lobbyist in political circles.
The real reason why the Bush-Cheney administration went into war in Iraq was because of oil. Both Bush and Cheney are from the oil industry and has close ties with the oil companies. Thanks to Osama Bin Ladin and 9/11, they use the terror card to justify an invasion into Iraq.
