[quote:Anonymous Coward 40923628:MV8yMzI1MDk0XzM5NjU4NTgxX0RCNkRFNDAw] I think we need to consider that Muslims are [b]very[/b] divided too! Both [b]Sunni[/b] and [b]Shi'ite[/b] have been at each others throats for centuries. With [b]Egypt[/b] being predominately of the [b]Sunni[/b] variety, it seemed to matter little to the West who got in post-Mubarak as part of the 'Arab Spring', as long as Mubarak was outed. In the event it was MB who were one of many of the yet-again sub-divided groups that make up the majority Sunni part of Muslim in Egypt who won a rather low-turnout election. Also it seems that Al'Quaeda would have to fall into the Sunni camp according to what I've read. [b]Syria[/b] is 74% [b]Sunni[/b] and 13% [b]Shi'ite[/b] and ruled by Bashar al-Assad who appears to be a [b]Shi'ite[/b] [b]Iran[/b] is 9% [b]Sunni[/b] and 89% [b]Shi'ite[/b]. If you generalise, probably not a good idea though, then to get a regime-change in Syria..just arm several [b]Sunni[/b] groups within Syria and it'll take care of itself! To assist just get shot of Mubarak and 'influence' the incoming [b]Sunni[/b] Government, so as to take care of Syria. Maybe the entire exercise is to de-stabilise Iran by surrounding them with all-Sunni Countries rather than doing another 'Iraq'? I wonder how many of the original demonstraters during the rise to the Arab Spring in Iran were of the [b]Sunni[/b] variety? Bottom line is that therer are so many sub-groups within the Muslim faith that it's difficult to figure what the fuck is going on. Hoping that this confused you as much as it did I while trying to figure it out...and I'm still not much the wiser for it! But I learned some things that I was unaware of. [/quote]
Can someone please tell me in a summarized paragraph or something, and try to fill me in? I just don't understand why?
