A story in the New Yorker veteran reporter Seymore Hersh reveals that we are funding Sunni groups in the Middle East in order to combat Shia dominance. If this makes any sense to you then you are smarter than I am.  We support the Shia in Iraq but Shia also dominate Iran who we are staring down at the moment. 

Hersh reports that we are seriously preparing to attack Iran.  If we are (Hersh is an outstanding reporter) then we are dumber than dumb.
