Independent – Washington’s decision to arm Syria’s Sunni Muslim rebels has plunged America into the great Sunni-Shia conflict of the Islamic Middle East, entering a struggle that now dwarfs the Arab revolutions which overthrew dictatorships across the region.

For the first time, all of America’s ‘friends’ in the region are Sunni Muslims and all of its enemies are Shiites.

    The demographic mix has become ever more sallied in recent days and will become ever more muddied in days, weeks, and months to come. Israel must defend herself rigorously irrespective of which forces are fighting in Syria. The enemy is still Shi’ite Iran, even though rival Sunni enemies will cause anarchy and chaos in the region. This Obama administration not only does not have any grasp o the reality facing the Middle east, but it also demonstrates a determination to throw a monkey wrench into Israel’s ability to defend herself. With all of the scandals facing Obama and the Executive Branch of the United States government, one would think that Obama would not be able to take the time to consider the war in Syria aside from being an utter massacre, and perhaps, continually attempt to stop the bloodshed, not increase it. The US’s getting involved in the Sunni-Shi’ite war is beyond lame: it is catastrophic for the Free World!
