63. Remember, much of the Sunni world is pissed at us..
...precisely because we empowered the Shiites in Iraq.

I am not sure the US is more hostile to Shiites than we are to the Sunni's. Perhaps it seems that way because of our feud with Iran since 1979.

Within the Muslim world, the Shiites are often considered uneducated and backward - particularly in places like Lebanon. Maybe that thinking has rubbed off on the US to some degree.
