The dividing of Iraq is now in motion.

If I had put up this picture during the early stages of the Iraq war (2003/2004) – you would probably look at it and call it a ‘conspiracy’.  Yet today, this picture brings home the truth, painfully as it might be, that Iraq had been lined up to be divided into three separate states all along.

I have a a few reasons to believe that for Iraq, right now, this is the game being played:

1 – The language of the media has changed.  No longer are they using words such as ‘terrorism’ or ‘Al-Qaeda’ to describe parties in Iraq.

2- Words such as Sunni, Shia and Kurds is being used instead to describe the parties involved in this new conflict.

3- ISIS is a group no one has ever heard of.  In fact it took me a long time to find out what ISIS was short for, and to this group is suddenly making ‘military style’ strides inside Iraq and controlling territory, military hardware and well organized to take on US trained Iraqi military and government begins to sound alarm bells of who is behind them and what is their motive? As in the past, sectarian violence was the preferred method to harm the government.

3- The media such as BBC and their reports have started hinted of ISIS intention to control their occupied territory and making it their permanent state.

As the news unfolds, and ISIS continue to make ground – like always I expect the US and UK (along with their allies) to drag their feet.  It serves in the interest of the west, and more importantly, it makes Middle East more unstable thus easier to control by the west along with their assets.

So, I predict in the next few months, the US/UK begin to talk to ISIS and seek to understand their terms.  Their terms no doubt (as described in the picture above) will be to break a section away of Iraq to be governened and control by Sunni Muslims, leaving northern Iraq to be broken away for the Kurds and remaining part of the Shia Muslims.  US/UK will ensure this is the case and so the new map of Middle East will be born.

Let’s see how it pans out.
