The Iran-Iraq war of 1980-1988 was a viscous war between factions of Islam and it came close to 
engulfing the Middle East and spreading to a nuclear conflict. The World held its breath as the Iraqi 
Sunni Muslims fought major battles with the Iranian Shia Muslims. The Western backed Iraqis may 
have forced a ceasefire on Iran, but the conflict unleashed an emerging threat from militant Shia Islam.

Perversely, Western democracies have chosen to important militant Islam by allowing a flood of 
immigrants, legal and illegal who are determined to continue their conflict. The author has provided a 
very informative review of the Iran-Iraq War in the context of the Cold War
