Iranian Terrorists On US Soil – For Real? Ctd

Joe Klein sees the alleged Iranian plot as part of a bigger conflict:

The attempt to kill Adel al-Jubeir may have been a one-off by a rogue element of the Al-Quds Force, but it is also a clear sign of escalating tensions between Sunnis and Shi’ites in the region. Those tensions will only increase now. A Saudi response is not improbable. A collapse of the Assad government in Syria could precipitate a regional sectarian conflict between Sunnis and Shi’ites, which could become chaotic very quickly–involving Lebanon, Israel, Iraq, Jordan, to say nothing of the destruction of the Iranian and Saudi oil fields.
