Mideast Skeptics Blast Bush’s Iraq Plan.
Posted by QB on January 12, 2007
This article is published by Forbes and the analysis of the expert is accurate. Saddam Hussein execution has complicated Iraq situation more than reaching to any peaceful settlement between Sunnis and Shias. The US if get the permission from Iraqi Prime Minister to go after Shia militia than the possibility is that they will use Kurds which will be more dangerous because it will create hatred among Shias and Kurds and that will result in further division of Iraqis into sectarian and ethnic grounds.
Mehdi militia might disappear from Sadr city before any offensive operation showing up in North which is relatively peaceful at the moment to take revenge because these Shias who want the complete control of Iraq see this as their only opportunity to hold on Iraq power.
There might be more going on behind the scenes as I remember another Shia leader Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim visited White House recently and they might have decided to bring down Nouri Al Maliki if he don’t go against Mehdi Militia. Abdul-Aziz Al Hakim is very close to Iranian government and he has his own powerful milita Badr which is more powerful than Muqtada Al Sadr miltia as they are trained in Iraq. This is very much possible that this is Nouri Al Maliki last chance to prove that he is sincere in stablizing the Iraq violent situation otherwise result will be end of his rule and the next Prime Minister will be from Abdul Aziz Al Hakim party. It will be interesting if this change take place because chances are that Badr and Mehdi militia will start fighting each other and unfortunetely we see more innocent people loosing their lives (liberated according to Bush).
I really don’t see any improvement in Iraq situation in the near future.
