Why was shi'ism enough of a glue for lebanese and iranians to become close but not enough to stop iraqi shia from attacking iran and vice versa?

    Lebanon only became "close" after they funded the minority Shia to genocide the Christians in the country. Iraq would be close to Iran too if they were their puppet, alas they werent. Even modern Shiite Iraqi's hate Iran like Shiites over the world who arent bought by gibs

      Lebanon was a bit more complicated than “Muslims killed everyone”

      The Sunni were aligned with minority Christian sects against the Maronites and Shia

      Shia were irrelevent in the first phase of war. They were cannon fodder for other militias like communist ones and once they organized were largely focused on the south and their main enemy was maronite south lebanon army.

    Iraq's war with Iran was the typical ethnic nationalist land grab, justified by the language spoken in Khuzestan, religion didn't play much into it from the Iraqi side (Saddam was a Sunni anyway)

            Lmao they don't have the balls to do this. They don't do invasions after the mess of the iran-iraq war. They are proxy wars the country. They have militias in those regions.

            Revolutionary fervor died really fast after Khomeini died.

            didn't need to, Afghanistan was warlord central so they could (and did) just arm a client militia
            Also Hazarajat doesn't border Iran so direct intervention would be awkward

        yeah but that was later in the war after it had become a total clusterfrick
        pan-Shiism probably justified continuing it from the Iranian side though, liberate them from Sunni rule and such
