    Is the population of Syria mostly Shia or Sunni Muslim?

    Correct for once, however...

    The 5% who run things are Alawites,
    an offshoot of....the Shiites.
    Hence their alignment with Hezbollah & Iran

    Which is interesting because politically
    they are Socialists aligned with Iraq.

    Nothing like straddling both sides of the
    fence to stay in power

    Sounds like Democrats are running
    the place
