Iraq – Sunni Shiites alliance.
Posted by QB on October 17, 2007
But what’s more important is that a true Iraqi national pact is in the making – coordinated by VicePresident Tariq al-Hashimi, a Sunni, and blessed by Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani himself. The key points of this pact are, no more sectarianism (thus undermining US strategy of divide and rule); no foreign interference (thus no following of US, Iran, or Saudi agendas); no support for al-Qaeda in the Land of the Two Rivers; and the right to armed resistance against the occupation.Last Friday Grand Ayatollah Sistani finally confronted the occupation in no uncertain terms. Via Abdul Mahdi al-Karbala’i, his representative in the holy city of Karbala, Sistani called for the Iraqi parliament to rein in Blackwater et al, and most of all the “occupation forces”. He has never spoken out in such blunt language before. Away from the Anbar sheikhs, the Sunni front is also moving fast. Last week six key, non-Salafi jihadist resistance groups, on a video on al-Jazeera, officially announced their union under the “Political Council of the Iraqi Resistance”. They are the Islamic Army in Iraq, the al-Mujahideen Army, Ansar al-Sunna, al-Fatiheen Army, the Islamic Front for the Iraqi Resistance (JAMI), and Iraqi Hamas.
A very important issue concerns a group that decided not to be part of the council: the 1920 Revolution Brigades. The brigades are basically Iraqi nationalist, anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist. They totally reject any sort of collaboration with the US. In a statement released in early September, the brigades stressed what an overwhelming majority of Sunnis agree on: “The democrats have a chance to end this conflict in a face-saving solution for the US, by first declaring that they recognize the factions of the Iraqi resistance as the representatives of the Iraqi people and the Iraqi Republic. After which a negotiating team would be arranged to negotiate your troop withdrawal, compensation for Iraq, and matters of future interest. It is only through the Iraqi resistance that a solution may be born.”Or else, it’s “variable, adaptable and reversible asymmetric warfare that will set the standard for years and years to come”.
Bush regime propaganda that US is winning the war in Iraq is another lie. This is true that the violence is down in Iraq but this happened many times in last five years of US occupation. It is clear now that Iraqis are busy building alliances against US that is another reason for decrease in violence in Iraq. I predicted exactly that sooner or latter Sunni and Shiites will unite against the common enemy US occupation troops, when they get tired of killing each other, the alliance between Sunnis and Shiites are the other reason of decreasing civilian casualties. This was my analysis that when Sunni Shiite unite they will make the occupation painful for US troops.
It was Sunni Iraqi Resistance who had caused so much damage to US occupation military, now they are creating the alliances along the sectarian division which will be disaster for US.
