No, the present mess began when we deposed the secular tyrants.
The French and British drew most of the borders of the "middle east" at the end of WWI when they carved up the Ottoman Empire.
The borders were drawn to suit the French and British, instead of along cultural boundaries. The only way to keep those countries together was secular despots. With those dead or losing power, you unleash the chaos created by westerners drawing lines to suit their political needs instead of what the local population wanted.
And that chaos is going to get worse. For example, as Iraq breaks into three countries, the newly-formed Kurdistan will cause problems with the significant Kurdish population in Turkey.
