We're always fighting the last war: ignorance of the Sunni-Shiite split burned us in Iraq, and I think we are overemphasizing it today. I wish more analysts were paying attention to ethnic rivalries, specifically those between Turks, Arabs, Kurds, and Persians.

I fully advocate the big-picture version and taking all of these into account. And more. The above article helps at least clear up that one division, which way too many people get wrong.
