To the West is Syria, Sunni/Baathists, Arab.
To Iraq's north is Turkey, Sunni, but a sectarian Government. Arab.
Now Al Qaeda is Sunni, Arab
Afghan is Sunni, Arab
Taliban is Sunni, Arab.
The other side is: ( SEE MAP )
To Iraq's East is
Iran, Shiite, Persian. and developing Nukes.
Iran is made up of Kurds, Sunni and Shiite.
Iraq is in the dead center, and trying to keep peace.
Iraq used to be run by Saddam and the Sunni ( Arabs ), a minority.
The new Democratic Government is Shiite, religiously connected to ( Persians ) Iran !! Remember Iran is sending Iraqi insurgents IEDs to use against USA troops.
USA is supporting a Government religiously connected to Iran the Persians.
While al Qaeda has the Sunni Arabs suicide bombers blowing up Shiite Mosques and Shiite market places.
And al Qaeda recently killed some Sunni leaders as they were not following orders.
Question is are the Arabs ( Sunni ) or the Persians ( Shiite ) going to end up with Iraq.
It is a geopolitical war, hiding behind Islam, both sides calling for Insurgents, to get USA
out so they can go to war and carve up Iraq.
THIS IS AS MUCH ABOUT PERSIANS VS ARABS
AS IT IS SUNNI VS SHIITE
And then deal with the Kurds. against both Sunni and Shiite.
Somebody got a match?
Now about Lebanon and the Jews.
Arabs vs Persians for Iraq.
Turks vs Arabs and Persians for a New Kurdistan.
Al Qaeda vs every one.
USA vs Iran over Nukes.
Lebanon vs Jews.
The Civil War in Iraq.
