2. Are we going to get involved in every uprising in the ME?

This is a proxy war between the The Kingdom and Iran, with the US and Russia being the big boys standing mostly on the sidelines.

NATO is in financial ruin (I believe it was the UK that was running out of missiles after a week in Libya).

An assertive China is starting to push its weight around in the region, and we all know they want Taiwan back, let alone the disputed Islands.

Israel could easily drag us into a form of war with Iran.

We can't be the world police anymore. Literally, we can't afford it. Every time we meddle in the ME and arm someone, it comes back to bite us.
