11. You miss the split in the vote.

It wasn't unanimous, and could have been done at any time.

It's what the more militant Shi'ites wanted all along.

(Let's avoid dealing with the chasm in the logic between perception and intent or goals and outcome. We've had troubles with that for upwards of 40 years in the US and we're not going to even get to the idea that there's a distinction between them probably in my lifetime. For many, the outcome must be their goals, and what people think you mean is what you necessarily meant. No option for "No, you misunderstand"--if you think I meant something and I think I meant something else, obviously I'm just horribly wrong.)
