Default America's Long History with the Middle East!

Our involvement with Middle Eastern countries date back to our Founding Fathers.

Even though this was in Northern Africa(Arabs or Muslims controlled this area) the U.S. had to make a decison to pay ransom to do business there or fight for our rights to sail in that area free from threats and so forth.

Most of the leaders of these different North African nations in the 1700's came from some Middle Eastern countries.

So we've had problems with Arab nations or Muslims since the late 1700"s.
