Twilight News / Months after fighting organization Islamic State of Iraq, evidence suggests that it might be the Iraqi government a growing sense of tired of "assistance" received from Iran. After one year after he took power, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi already carried out drastic changes in various parts of the country, where many of them raised the ire of Iran. Abadi these procedures cause the narrowing of Iranian influence, which leads to serious conflicts between the dominant powers. Cabinet reshuffle According to the demands of the demonstrators and civil unrest, Abadi taken action to curb corruption, which was rampant in the entire period of the rule of his predecessor, Abadi has targeted a wide range of government sectors, through reduced large areas of the bureaucracy. Of course, at a time that led to reduce corruption and unnecessary expenses associated with the bloated government institutions, there are other side benefits.Former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has stepped down from his post, but he still retains certain positions in the government, and the position of vice president and one of them, but not anymore, he had Abadi al-Maliki in the midst of the demobilization of government Altjdab campaign.
Maliki is a big contender for the rule of al-Abadi extended to all parts of the country, being a former prime minister and a close ally of the Iranian government, but the government sterilization campaign found that the al-Maliki and many others who have served long periods officials, Segerdoa from office.
In addition, Abadi launched a major investigation into corruption cases, is currently being re-investigation of the issues that have been closed earlier, and that many of the current and former officials in the Iraqi government are under scrutiny, and Maliki and his companions are not safe from it.
It does not end at this point, it has been loaded Maliki responsible for the fall of Mosul in the past year, however, the organization of Islamic militants, the state, and that his trial could take place in military and civilian courts.
In addition, the pro-Iranian religious groups expressed support for the owners, and is rumored to al-Maliki has not come back from the meeting, which was held in Iran Khat haven chosen him rather than face the courts.
And as the voice of the pro-Iran in Iraq, al-Maliki was a strong piece in the Greater Tehran designs for Iraq, but that this trick has been hampered by the consummate Ebadi movements.
Iran has worked for years with the Maliki government, and threw many Sunnis and other minorities in Iraq, their accusations to the Maliki government as a puppet of Iran. Looking at the policies of the pro-al-Maliki and Shiites loyal to Iran, it seems hard to imagine it otherwise.
Iran has invested a lot of time, money and effort in order to get a strong influence within the Iraqi political system, which does not take kindly reshuffle carried out by al-Abadi.
Control of the skies
Iran is using Iraqi airspace fast as a way for Iranian weapons and other assistance that link to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, since the beginning of the civil war in Syria, Iran enjoyed the arrival of a relatively trouble-free atmosphere between Iran and Syria.
Today, however, the Abadi keeps track of everything that looped over his country. In testimony to a particular incident, an Iranian transport plane was forced to remove all contents on the Iraqi runway temple, did not only take a few minutes to flow after the Iranian diplomats and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard forces to the airport.
Iraq has been a crucial link to Iran, where they need to access to and from the allies in western Iraq, where the well-being of flights were undeterred and unhindered and benefit big of Syria and Hezbollah.
Iran can lose this lifeline for the benefit of its agents if the escalating intervention Abadi, which may constitute a nuisance for Iranian interests in the region. With no clear path to Iran, Assad could find himself cut off and her alone.
Since that directed the organization of the Islamic state, the Iraqi army, north of the country, the Iranian-backed militias have played a crucial role in preventing the entire occurrence of Iraq in the hands of the organization of the Islamic state, and foiled a Shiite militia led by a leader who was once disguised Gen. Qassem Soleimani, offering organization the Islamic State to Baghdad, thereby providing protection for the sites and cities Shiite, expelling terrorists from the centrality of cities such as Tikrit.
But this title may also like the holy alleged atrocities, especially against the Sunni population in Iraq. After the restoration of the lost land, the population, "the editors" often come under attack from a second before they presumed liberators Soleimani militias.
It is clear that the Sunni population resent the extent of influence which is owned by Shiite militias, and people began to express their grievances with the government. And wishing to win their support, Abadi began working to undermine the authority of Soleimani.
It was reported that two men were in a heated meetings in recent weeks, and in one of these meetings was Soleimani rejected after heated confrontation, and the two men went to state television to express their dissatisfaction with the policy of each other.
Iran will not allow a return
The facts and allegations mentioned above fit with the idea that Iran is losing its grip on Iraq. It is understood that there should be some bribery on the part of the government, and that no one in any modern political system that wants to lose power.
It seems that in the event of Abadi much less comfortable in playing the role of the Iranian puppet, than his predecessor.
But like it or not, it was Iran came there to stay. Under the previous administration, it was Iran's ability to influence the nation lies almost solely on the political side, and now with all that, Iran is carrying the most powerful card to play.
With the frequency of the United States to join the fighting, going to allow Iran to have a marked and growing military presence in the country. In fact, that Iran and Shiite militias are the main reason for the lack sweep Iraq fully, roads leading to Baghdad in large part defended by Shiite militias, chisels or if these militias withdrew the road to Baghdad would be short.
This fact, which is that the fact that Iran can Tarjeh course of the war according to what you want, you must be present at the thought of al-Abadi, and to what extent can really pay Ebadi of Iran? You might not like these interventions, or force played by the Iranian generals, but the simple fact is that al-Abadi at this time needs to be Iran.
With regard to Iraq, Iran is in a new scenario completely, it has the political and military influence on both, and continues to control. Abadi can try all you want to in order to destabilize the Iranian influence of his country, but Iran is not going anywhere, it has woven itself in institutions since the fall of Saddam Hussein, and now has a military presence as well.
The goal of Iran's regional installs itself king of the Middle East means that Iraq is extremely important that let him escape from her hands.
