Obama's Shia Policy

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: His father and his step father were both Muslim

I would liike this article to be re-posted, updated with the more recent events that show a hidden policy favoring Shia muslims over, well, almost everybody.

We now know Obama has force-fed the Congress with an illegal agreement that will allow Iran relief from the sanctions, and the freedom to pursue the bomb. Although Obama has encouraged uprisings in the Sunni world (Libya, Egypt), and has abandoned Iraq, he refused to provide even moral support for the public in Iran that were protesting the Shia Iran regime.

Now Obama is giving tacit support for Assad, another Shia ruling in Syria over the majority Sunnis. With Russia now in place, we can forget about Obama's red line.

Shia are only about 10% of the Muslim world. So perhaps Obama wants to strengthen the Shia as a counter-balance, or maybe he just favors Shia. I wish Obama were a more honest politician to explain what he's doing.
