The U.S. government has seen its reputation plummet with the Iraq war, according to an international poll, but the United Nations has also suffered a massive loss of trust
It is possible that the distance from the Iraq war and the fact that negotiations on the "road map", which are to lead to a Palestinian state, are changing the attitude of the Arab people. While the U.S. government pays no attention to the genocide in the Congo and does not want to participate in peacemaking military measures, it is sharpening its tone toward Iran. It is possible that the hawks in the U.S. government are pushing for a renewed military campaign, especially since it is repeatedly emphasized that the war against international (Muslim) terrorism is far from over. In any case, according to a survey by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, people in the Arab world are afraid of a military attack by the superpower.
How governments behave when they want to secure their power and do not want to take unnecessary risks is a matter of realpolitik. At present most of the Arab states are bowing to the prere of the USA. This is not necessarily because the burghers want it to happen. Finally, there are no democratic states in the region. The governments themselves are usually afraid of the Muslim extremists and, in order to maintain their power and avoid a democratic rebellion, agree to the demands of the United States, at least on the surface.
