When the Americans were leaving Iraq, Obama said: "we retain an independent, stable and self-confident country with the government, elected by its people". It is evident that the U.S. president has intentionally misrepresented the facts. Currently, in Iraq anarchy reigns. Regions and metropolitan area are de facto independent from each other. And in those areas where Iraqi Sunnis are living, radical Islamists have raised their heads.
U.S. was building "Iraqi democracy" on the Lebanese model. According to this model, government agencies should include representatives of all religious confessions in the state. The prevailing confession has got the right of priority. Religious majority in Iraq is the Shiites. The representative of the Shiite Nouri al-Maliki got the key post of prime minister. Iraqi parliament has elected the Kurd Jalal Talabani the president of the state.
Iraqi Vice President is the Sunni Tariq Hashemi. When planning such scenario, the Americans had put some ambitious goals. First one was to show that now in Iraq everyone has access to power: Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds. The second goal was to create a balance of power between the three groups. Following the overthrow of Saddam Hussein and the defeat of the party "Baas" bloody struggle between Sunnis and Shiites broke out.
Who owns Iraq's oil, controls Iraq. The main oil fields are located in the Shiite and Kurdish areas of Iraq. Sunnis do not want to tolerate this "injustice". Deadly clashes between Sunnis and Shiites in Iraq began due to the oil. And they both sent to the "enemy" the militants who organized massacre of civilian population on the occupied territory. Widows, orphans and hundreds of dead civilians are the result of the oil wars.
As soon as the Americans started leaving Iraq, the Shiites began to besiege Sunnis everywhere. In late October 2011, Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki announced that his special services had revealed "Ba'athist conspiracy", which included almost all Iraqi Sunnis. In December same year, the government initiated a mass expulsion of Sunnis from the posts of provincial governors, from Iraqi universities and from the government. The apogee of this "Sunni cleansing" has become the prosecution of Iraqi Vice President Tariq al Hashimi. He was accused of organizing a coup. Hashimi has escaped from detention in Iraqi Kurdistan. Baghdad arm is helpless in this autonomous province of Iraq.
As already mentioned, the current Iraq is an absurd conglomeration of provinces not obeying Baghdad. In the north and west of the country there is the so-called "Sunni Triangle", closed by Baghdad, Tikrit and Ar-Ramadi. Using the situation, emissaries of al-Qaeda have penetrated here. In 2006, they declared all the Sunni provinces of Iraq the territory of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI).
The head of a breakaway state is Abu Omar al-Baghdadi. Al-Baghdadi means "a man from Baghdad". But it is believed that Abu Omar has got this prefix to the name long before being sent in Baghdad by Islamists. Al-Baghdadi and his supporters have declared a "holy war" in the country. The main goal of the jihadists was not the Americans. In one of the documents of ISI was told: "90 percent of our bullets are for apostates". The category of apostates includes politicians, military, police, local authorities, and the Shia clergy. According to the jihadists, the main threat to Iraq's future will come just from the Shiites.
