I'm sure that other Middle Eastern countries will be involved (Possibly Syria/Lebanon/Libya/Yemen and others).

Bad Company & BC2 are really the only BF games w/ stories that I know of but they both had a decent plot, I have high hopes for BF3.

"Meh" isn't exactly a word, either.

I think everyone needs to be a bit more objective. COD series, even the latter ones, do have stories. All of them have had stories. They might not be very coherent, or at all, or even plausible, but they are stories that many find entertaining. They're always trying to get the most exciting events possible so they're usually not very artfully crafted, but they are exciting if you're not already satiated by the over-the-top story lines.

From the sounds of Kotaku's summary, it's going to be a mess, but will be non-stop action. It's not everyone's cup of literary tea, but for one, not everyone can appreciate a literary experience in their video games, and for two, the multiplayer is pretty in depth and that makes it worth it to the multitude of COD players.

This.

I really enjoy the Call of Duty games, especially the Modern Warfare series. The singleplayer campaigns may be a bit short, but the multiplayer more than makes up for it IMO. Sure, they are more "mainstream" run-and-gun (opposed to more difficult FPS games out there), but I quite often like that about them. Easier to just jump into and have fun, without having to spend a lot of time practicing or figuring out the ins and outs before really being able to get into it. I haven't had a lot of time lately to sit and play video games a whole lot, so I don't mind something with a little lower of a learning curve.
