Iran, sectarianism and proxy war in Iraq:
First I must say sectarian war in the middle east is what its history has been for centuries at the very least. With that said the new sectarian clashes are due to Bush's unleashing of a new opportunity when he illegally attacked Iraq to in his own words " do Gods bidding" and straighten out the middle east. You can see how well that worked not just in Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Yemen but throughout the entire middle east as he freed Iran up to raise hell and she is everywhere.
Anyway back to Iraq!
Iran, sectarianism and proxy war in Iraq: The government continues its war of words with the Iraqi prime minister. Remarks exchanged between them have become stiffer, especially following the visit of the Sunni vice president of Iraq, Tariq al-Hashemi, to Turkey. Shiite Iranian Prime Minister al-Maliki has renewed his claim that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is interfering in Iraq’s internal affairs.
Into the bargain, he has also claimed that Erdoğan is doing so for sectarian reasons. Erdoğan has responded to Maliki with similar seriousness. In reality the government is aware that all of these remarks – so carefully indirect – are typical of the style of proxy war Iran conducts, because Iran prefers to speak harshly to Turkey through l-al-Maliki, rather than speaking directly. If one important cause of the current disturbance of the delicate balance between Iran and Turkey and this proxy war over sectarianism is the Iranian nuclear crisis, the other is the Arab Spring.

Iran Saudi Arabian proxy war in Iraq gaining steam!
This Middle East breakdown guaranteed by Bush after attacking Iraq to free Iran up to instigate throughout the Middle East is immanent. I will just reiterate 2 discussions we have had numerous times as they are coming to fruition:
We know of the Iranian influence for the Shiite but we don't hear much about Saudi Arabia helping the Sunni. continued violence against the Sunni will draw them out in the open and Bush's civil war will get going full swing.
Saudi-Iranian Neo Cold War:
At the same time as it denies cooperating with preparations for a potential Israeli attack on Iran, Saudi Arabia prepares for strike of its own. Saudi Arabia’s air force has signed a deal to upgrade its fleet of 150 strike aircraft and procure advanced weaponry to respond to an Iranian military threat while simultaneously denying reports that the country is coordinating with Israel over a possible strike against Iran’s nuclear sites.
Increasingly fearful of Iran Saudi's upgrading fighter jets to counter Iran's threat
“The Saudis are very worried about the growing power of Iran,”I use to be concerned that the old confrontation would erupt in war between Iran and at the least US armed Saudi Arabia? Also the entire middle east is on edge over Iran's militancy and belligerence and all middle east allies are locked and loaded compliments of the United States. Also do not forget Saudi Arabia has also opened its airspace if needed for attack on Iran.
You can not blame them knowing the sectarian Religious fervor in the middle east but I had no idea the dissention goes all the way back to the naming of the Gulf. Saudi’s know it as the Gulf of Arabia and I can remember that but Iran calls it the Persian Gulf as the rest of us seem to now.
Both Iran and Saudi Arabia have been using Lebanon as their battlefront up to now able to avoid direct confrontation. Iran has pumped millions of dollars in supplies and arms much to the consternation of her suffering people while Saudi Arabia has been supporting the Palestinian Authority. As you know, Iran has many problems at home plus the UN who is trying to keep them from developing nuclear weapons. Now Iran is going to sanction attempting to break Israel's blockade of Gaza to take the heat off them and get direct confrontation with Israel going.
While the world had been engrossed following events in Iran since the election was stolen to keep fascist Ahmadinejad and he fascist agenda in control Iran has been fueling a rebel war in Yemen and what a surprise it has extended into Saudi Arabia. A propaganda war is also being waged. Egypt and Saudi Arabia have pulled the plug on Iran’s Arabic speaking TV. It makes me wonder why they did not do that during the height of the protests when Iran’s Government sanctioned channel was televising pure lies and propaganda? I find it hard to believe that Iran is that vulnerable in that area!
So far there has been no direct confrontation. However I absolutely saw what I have been warning about since Bush diverted from Afghanistan to attack Iraq and get back in the middle east to create a new middle east (dis)order! I do not give a damn what anyone says. Bush Cheney and their Democratization program in an already historically unstable middle east set all of this and more in motion!
The hell on earth Bush created for Iraqi’s will engulf the entire Middle East before it encompasses the entire world if we can not contain it. Under Bush we broke a long standing tradition of not adding fuel to the Middle East fire by supplying weapons. We are now, including advanced weaponry and missile defense systems. The Middle East breakdown Bush started armed and funded is continuing under Obama. This up to now proxy war in the middle east is under way and Saudi Arabia is hoping Israel keeps Iran busy until the US is forced to come to their rescue as you know they will. Wait, watch, and listen, this is not good for the world and our future!
