The ones fighting the wars may truly believe in the cause they have chosen? On our side and theirs. But every global conflict centers around control of resources, and geo-political strength. The money and the power. I bet we go back whether we want to or not. ISIS has seized alot of wealth and oil. Which belongs to people who have enough money to make the world go round. And I am sure they will be wanting it all back?
Sure, that's true with the vast majority of wars, and as I said, we are in the ME because of oil. But that doesn't mean specific military operations are designed to control resources. We didn't go into Afghanistan so our companies could access their mineral wealth. If we did, they are seriously disappointed now since none of them have access to it, and the current leaders of these companies will be long dead or retired before we do.
