83. Yeah, Shia Iran is a huge supporter of Sunni based Al Qaeda.

Al-Qaeda is also responsible for instigating sectarian violence among Muslims.<25> Al-Qaeda is intolerant of non-Sunni branches of Islam and denounces them with excommunications called "takfir". Al-Qaeda leaders regard liberal Muslims, Shias, Sufis, Ahmadiyyas and other sects as heretics and have issued attacks on their mosques and gatherings.

So, lets see...Saudi Arabia is the spiritual home to Sunni Muslims and the political home to Al Qaeda. Now we're ramping up our belligerence to attack Shia Muslims - essentially, providing the muscle against Al Qaeda's spiritual enemy. What's wrong with this picture?
