Remember This

As the "Iran is bad and must be stopped" rhetoric increases, keep in mind that Iran is Shia. The majority of the insurgency problem in Iraq is Sunni, probably fed by wealthy individuals in Sunni Saudi Arabia. But the Saudis are Bush's "friends." So Bush is trying again to manipulate the press as he pounds the drumbeat for an attack on Iran. While Iran is most likely involved in Iraq, as must be Syria and who knows what other Middle East players, the thing to keep in mind is that the attacks on Iraqis and Americans are coming from Sunni insurgents who have nothing to do with Shia Iran.
