Don961:  Iranian illusions burned by Iraq

– 49 Minutes Have Passed

The burning of the Iranian consulate in Najaf and the brutal reactions to it, which targeted Iraqis in several cities, most notably Nasiriyah, are not a passing event. The evidence is that Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi intends to resign, despite Iran’s adherence to it. This shows the depth of the Iraqi crisis on the one hand and Iraq escapes from Iran on the other.

Sixteen years after the fall of Saddam Hussein, Iran has failed to win the loyalty of Iraqis, especially Shiite Arabs who have resisted, mostly Iranian influence in Iraq and are still resisting it to this day with their naked breasts.

Since the establishment of the Islamic Republic in 1979, Iran has wanted to export its revolution to Iraq. Iraq was Ayatollah Khomeini’s first target. That is why the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, which, despite its absurdity and heavy losses, prevented the “demarcation of the boundary between two civilizations”, in the words of the late French President Francois Mitterrand in justifying his support for Iraq militarily. That war. For centuries, the Iraqi-Iranian border has been a symbol of the existing balance in the region, a balance that collapsed after 2003 with American desire.

The Iranian failure in the 1988-80 war did not prevent the repetition of the Iranian attempt to control Iraq in accordance with the theory that the sectarian link is superior to the national and national bond. This means from the Iranian point of view that Khomeini promoted, and then his successor, Ali Khamenei, that the sectarian link would turn Iraq into an Iranian reserve. Post-1979 Iran did not ever notice that the first reference to the Shiites was in Najaf, not in Qom.

This seems to be the first dimension of the Iraqi burning of the Islamic Republic consulate in Najaf. At the same time, it is a burning of the Iranian illusions that have been dragged into the eight-year war and the ongoing Iranian threats to the Gulf states, particularly Saudi Arabia. These threats reached a certain stage, especially in the 1980s, the attempt to politicize the pilgrimage and turn it into a demonstration that raises slogans unrelated to the religion of Islam.

What is happening in Iraq is just as important as what is happening inside Iran itself. What is happening in Iraq is the most prominent evidence of the fall of the Iranian project, which regained vitality after the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. That year there was a US war on Iraq culminated in the fall of the regime. Iran was a partner in that war, which the Iraqi people began to erase more than a year ago.

It simply appeared that the project of Iran’s control of Iraq was not a picnic. This is due to several reasons, primarily that the Arabs are Arabs and the Persians are Persians and that it is not enough to have a sectarian link to the demise of the borders between two countries that differ from each other in many things. Moreover, it is clear that Iraq is not prepared to live under a regime that allowed Iran to become the first and last word in determining who is the Iraqi prime minister.

In the end, Adel Abdul Mahdi, who is supposed to have submitted his resignation, found himself on this site because Iran wanted him to be there. There is no other reason to be prime minister after the May 12 election, except that Iran has put a veto on Haider al-Abadi’s return to prime minister, just as Iyad Allawi did in 2010.

The burning of the Iranian consulate in Najaf revealed the reality of Iran. Iraqis have dropped the aura of the Islamic Republic itself.

There is a viable Iranian expansionist project that first fell in Iran itself, where the popular revolution continues. In Iran, the fire is still under the ashes, contrary to what Khamenei says of “dropping a dangerous plot and of American and Israeli participation in that plot.” There is an Iranian conspiracy against Iran. There is an Iranian regime that does not realize that playing the role of a regional power in the region needs elements. At the forefront of these elements is a strong, diversified economy that depends not only on oil and gas income.

In the end, Iran has nothing more to export than sectarian militias. What the Iraqis reject above all is these militias and Iran’s pursuit of a satellite regime in Iraq where the PMF is a branch of the IRGC, the backbone of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

From Iraq, the new start of the Iranian expansion project was in 2003. From Iraq, this project begins to decline after its exposure. There is no doubt that the sanctions imposed by the Donald Trump administration have led to unprecedented pressure on Iran and its ability to expand to the announcement that Tehran is controlling four Arab capitals: Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and Sana’a.

Lebanon’s revolution against the “Hezbollah era” – that is, the Iranian influence – seems detailed compared to what is happening in Iraq. Iran believes that it has managed to silence the popular revolution and that the situation has returned to normal in light of the most severe repression with the Iranians. These people did not rise to return to their homes. This is because the Iranian regime has nothing to deal with the economy except for serious negotiations with the United States on the nuclear issue. Such negotiations must address Iranian behavior in the region.

The region will not be after the events of Iraq as it was before. Iraq will not be the biggest prize Iran received from the US war in 2003. When it speaks the language of economics and numbers, other languages, including the language of empty slogan-type auctions, are silenced in all matters concerning Jerusalem and Palestine. Israel annexed Jerusalem without Iran doing anything.

There is a game that ended after the Iraqi uprising against Iran. Nothing has changed with the replacement of Adil Abdul Mahdi as an Iraqi army officer, the dismissal of the officer in charge of the crisis cell in Dhi Qar province, or the promise of a reshuffle before he has to resign personally.

There is a very simple question that arises in the light of what Iraq has witnessed and is still witnessing. Is Iran a normal country or not? Can she reconcile with her people before thinking of putting her hand on Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen?
