"The biggest mistake the USA did with Iraq is that it took a Sunni country and transformed it into a Shitte country" I hate to break it to you but it was ALWAYS a Shitte country and the British (by design and at the expense of the majority) placed the Sunnis in power. Secondly, true that the despots in the arabia peninsula are afraid of Shitte Iran (partly, because they themselves treat their Shiite minorities like crap) but in NO WAY would they allow the Israelis who they hate as much if not more to use their airspace, ESPECIALLY, if the Americans object. The heart of the Shitte world is in Iraq, and it has returned to become it - a rising crescent is coming and the despots of the region that hold power with levers that are the relics of the post colonialist era cannot last. And Israel is playing the old game without seeing that the chess pieces and the world has changed - this is bibi's big mistake.
