Dividing Iraq: A Recipe for Disaster

Dividing Iraq: A Recipe for Disaster

TEHRAN (FNA)- Now that Iraqi army and Sunni-Shia volunteer forces are defeating ISIL, the United States and its anxious allies claim the country has no future as a unitary state!

The US House Armed Services Committee has even passed a ridiculous bill to divide Iraq into three separate entities. Lest we forget this was the War Party’s initial goal from the beginning, when they invaded the country in 2003.
The pre-planned agenda is to sidestep the unity government in Baghdad and provide arms and assistance to Sunnis and Kurds that are fighting the terrorist group of ISIL. This, in turn, will lead to the de facto partitioning of the country into three Shia, Sunni and Kurdish regions. This kind of colonial policy could only mean one thing: Divide and rule. That is precisely what we are seeing today in Iraq, Syria and even Yemen:
- ISIL managed to capture large swathes of land in Iraq and Syria amid the division and chaos – with a helping hand from Washington and cohorts. There is no reason to think the terrorist goons will go away once these countries are divided along the sectarian lines.
- Iraq and Syria could only exist if their ethnic groups and communities remain politically united as a unitary state. The disintegration of the countries, the ramping up of ethnic/religious hostilities, and the strengthening of extremist groups operating within their borders will never do that.
- The US and Israel don’t want to see ISIL defeated. They want ISIL to break up Iraq into denominations as it serves with their strategic aims. If ISIL are defeated, Washington and Tel Aviv won’t be able to redraw new borders, create easier access to vital resources, and eliminate rivals to their hegemony.
This leads us to the conclusion that the so-called War on Terror was in fact a preplanned agenda to redraw the map of the Middle East. To fulfill that illusion that failed initially, the warmongers are now advocating the division of Iraq. As per the radical scheme, they want to make sure their terrorists will continue to weaken the country by triggering sectarian bloodletting.
The good news is that Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and religious leaders from across the Shiite-Sunni spectrum have all denounced the proposed US bill as an attempt to rip the country apart. In their words, only the Iraqi people can decide the future of their country.
Still, these are dangerous times for the people of Iraq, and indeed Syria and Yemen. They should never allow the colonial powers rip their countries to shreds. It’s a recipe for disaster.
