The article discusses the present state of the Sunni-Shiite cold war. As the Iraq war has continued, Sunni leaders have increasingly vocalized their fear of radicalized Shiites. In December 2004, King Abdullah of Jordan warned that Iran was seeking a Shire Islamic republic in Iraq that could become part of a Shiite crescent that would threaten the Arab world.
