Dig deeper, Pete. Why did Iran support ISIS at that point? Because they were threatened. Who were they threatened by?

The US and SA. Why?

Why would any culture as ancient and a memory of thousands of years, feel threathened? A very simple question.

Go back in time, to the fundamental difference between Arab and Persian cultures. It's not that Shia-Sunni thing, although it's portrayed that way. It's a clash of ways of life. And the US, Canada, and the west have more in common with Persia than with the Arabs.
