Two Iraqis, one Shiite and one Sunni, say in Syria, they're fighting a sectarian war triggered when the US toppled Saddam.

When hasn't the middle east been fighting ? Give men no easy access to women, no football, golf or sports and a religion that doesn't allow freedom....

What a convoluted mess of trying to justify Iraq 's issues in Syria. It's as if the people in Syria don't have a say anymore. I never read of a country so used and abused in my life.

It's never...EVER.....their fault, is it?

If it's not the Jews.....it's the US.

Think about it....the Sunnis and the Shiites have been fighting for centuries.....why is this OUR fault?

As janice b says.....when HAVEN'T they been fighting?

I believe that, if they WANTED peace....they could create it! Instead....they fight their ridiculous religious war in the middle of neighborhoods....all the time, blaming their blood lust on someone else!

So the issue just arose, like one side has oppressed another for years, or that the oppressor and oppressed roles will not be reversed?

Syria is all about toppling the Shi'ite regime under Bashar and installing a Sunni one that will be a counterbalance to the Iranian influence that is growing daily. Be careful what you wish for Foggy Bottom; it might not be what you expect; or then again maybe it is?

It is a very complicated situation. Shiites and Sunnies hate each other, both hate the West and Israel, and any other religion. This division may be a blessing and stop an all out war.
