Shiites and Sunnis: Mutually assured destruction?

Remember Eugene Fields' poem of the Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat (actual name: The Duel)? If you haven't, spoiler alert!

We hear this talk about Muslims not liking non-believers. But, to me, it seems that the biggest enemy of the Shiite Muslims are the Sunni Muslims and vice versa. When they're all done killing each other, with the United States killing Muslims of all persuasions, will there be any Muslims left? Can't they all just get along? (Apologies to the late Rodney King.)

(Prompted by Saudi Arabia executing Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr. The things that al-Nimr did that Saudi Arabia objected to sound like they would be perfectly legal in the United States.)
