The dynamics are interesting. We are supporting the Shiite majority in Iraq, while also supporting the non-Shiite majorities in Lebaannon and Syria. The Saudis are panicked by the emerging Shiite crescent running from Pakistan through the center of Islam to Lebannon, and are now actively looking for our assistance. But the Shiite majority in Iraq is doing the same. So far, we seem to be able to play most of the sides, without alienating them, since in all cases, we support the majority sentiments in each country. Thus, while al-Hakim may not like that we have sided againt Hizb'Allah in Lebannon, it is much more important to him that we are supporting moderate Shiite dominated rule back home in Iraq. Similarly, the Sunnis in Lebannon, Syria, and even Saudi Arabia, may not like our support of the Shia in Iraq, they are more concerned with Hizb'Allah.
