Argue with crazygringo who advocates a shift in American policy from Sunni to Shia. Until 1979 both KSA and Iran were pro U. S.

The US has oil interests in the Gulf. Iran will now be in a stronger position to threaten these interests.
1. Iran was "pro-US" from 1953 to 1979 only because we forcibly inserted our chosen puppet ruler into place.



2. as for KSA, simply following the financing trail for the bulk of the region's "anti-US" terrorism should give a pretty good picture of just how "pro-US" the Saudis really are. those weren't Iranians flying planes into buildings on 9/11.

3. the US does not have any oil interests whatsoever in the region, only private business has interests. Iran, fyi, has oil. private business interests should not dictate foreign policy, especially when that foreign policy puts American lives directly in harm's way.
