Q&A: American Policy in Iraq

Question:
Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatahu
Do the events in Iraq represent a continuity of America's initial plan to divide Iraq or are they a result of Europe meddling into Iraq in order to weaken America's plot? Or is it an internal affair?
Wa Jazaakum Allahu Khayran
From Samer Abu Omar

Answer:
Wa Alaikum Assalaam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatahu
Ever since the United States imposed a no-fly zone over North-Iraq in 1991, the Kurdistan province, they followed the aim of dividing Iraq. Since then Kurdistan, Iraq has been similar to an autonomous state. Following the American occupation in 2003, the United States brought along with their tanks agents who were immersed in sectarianism and schools of thought. American ruler over Iraq, Bremer, who then put a quota on the amount of power each one can have and created a constitution which carried within it the seeds for Iraq's division. For example, the constitution dictated that the President be Kurdish, the Prime Minister be Sunni and the Speaker of the House be Shi'ite. The atmosphere in Iraq thus revolved around division based on provinces.
Thus it can be said that the unraveling divisions occurring in Iraq now, are fruits of the seeds of division sowed by and based on the quota systems (in the division of power) and provincial rule which were ingrained by the United States. During and after its occupation of Iraq, the United States and its proxies in Iraq continued to sow these seeds.
It is incumbent upon the Ummah to realize that its unity is obligatory, and that it is one Ummah with one State and one leader. This does not only apply to Iraq but rather to all Muslim lands under the shade of Rayat al-Uqab, the banner of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, the banner of the rightly guided Khilafah, which we ask Allah سبحانه وتعالى for its return soon. Surely, Allah is the All-powerful, the Almighty.
