They just know they can trust each other more than they can trust the USA crusaders.
religion, ideology, partisanship are delusional

Shia and Sunni hate each other more, and a lot longer than Christians. From the very beginning of Islam. It took Christians hundreds of years, the first generation of Islam split and went to war. Obviously division, strife and war is an integral part of Islam. Like it is in all religions, but Islam trumps them all, except possibly Mormonism.

Is the US sidelined in Syria? Wonderful!
Both salubrious and lugubrious concurrently.

The frightening thing is the right wing call for 'US exceptionalism' would *require* that we get involved simply as a function of the national ego. How insulting that someone would hold a war and not invite us, the 'popular girl', to thier party.

You are right, it's deeply insulting. USA! USA! USA!

Since early times, US has always tried to be a 'global player' and the only way to do it is by interfering in internal, bilateral and regional matters. The same goes for the former colonial nations like UK, France & Russia.
But the problem I see here is with the Arabs - they have a concept (which originates from Islam) called the 'Ummah' (global community) and yet all they talk about is in terms of their local identity, be it 'Arabs' or larger tribal affiliations across nations in the region, or even family affiliation. Unless they rise above these petty differences and truly unite, they can never be able to contribute globally.

you want to learn more read about "shi'a crescent theory" and you will understand some of whats going on in Syria.
no body in muslim world cares about political sidelining, people are being slaughtered in Syria as we speak simply because they dont regime to rule them, I think focus and the question should be whether its moral to watch Bashaar killing children, women and elder while we are watching and politically comment about it,
sad and saddening!

No doubt that Bashar kills children ,women and elder but no doubt that the FSA kills and destroys any evidence of Christians there
