Iran Starts Regional War with Sunni Muslims

Iran, a Shi’a (or Shi’ite) Islam nation, is fighting a proxy war [1] in the Middle East that pits their sect of Islam against the Sunnis, such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Iraq, Yemen, and even Syria are places where Iran is spreading their influence and sending their weapons (and sometimes, troops) to fight wars for the Shi’a cause. Turkey’s dictatorial president, Tayyip Erdogan, said:

“Iran is trying to dominate the region…This is intolerable and Iran has to see this.”
