First, America is under attack from various groups working out of various Middle East countries. The solution for America is to fight and defeat those enemies. The problem is the solution requires winning a guerilla war against enemies who blend into the population.

Second, America and Europe can use the oil under the Middle East and the people of the Middle East cannot use much of the oil

Third, because money from the sale of oil does not go to the people. It goes to those who control the people, those who control access to the oil fields. Those people are rogue people who took things that did not belong to them. That puts the morality of buying oil from some of the Middle East countries into a very different light than mere selling and buying.
The oil fields were stolen from those who located and began to mine the oil. That would be William D’Arcy in 1908.

The world’s oil was largely in the hands of seven corporations based in the United States and Europe. Five of the companies were American (Chevron, Exxon, Gulf, Mobil, and Texaco), one was British (British Petroleum), and one was Anglo-Dutch (Royal Dutch/Shell). These companies have since merged into four common oil companies: Shell, ExxonMobil, Chevron, and BP.

In the Middle East local governments seized, (took) the physical assets of the oil companies in violation of Contract Law. Just as some Middle East companies seized the assets of the oil companies, those companys should must and can get their property back via their governments which means the governments of America and Britain.
