No, they aren't. One of the eight spots is given automatically to the country that is hosting the event and following World Cup. The Confederations Cup has a lot less to do with watching the best teams in the world compete, and a lot more to do with just watching one or two (depending on where it's hosted) of the best teams from all the inhabited continents battle it out. It's basically a gimmick. Still fun to watch, don't get me wrong. But you're glamorizing it way too much. Or do you really think that the winner of the Oceania Football Confederation's tournament is one of the best teams in the world?
The Oceanic Confederation should be merged with Asia. The Mid-East should have its own confederation.
