Abu Udai writes saying that indications in south Iraq have revealed prediction on the first steps for partitioning Iraq into three regions, neither ethnical nor ideological, but rather spheres of regional forces influence having multi and changeable interests. An economic oil dimension sphere of influence in the north, where America finds itself as having the right to it for several reasons, regions of economic sectarian dimension in the south where Iran sees it has the right to it in return for the many services it has offered to the American occupier. All this is under knowledge and satisfaction of America.

Statements recently published for the Saudi foreign minister have been an indication to what is being existent in south Iraq and the danger it poses to Iraq's unity and safety as well as to the neighbouring countries. Some neighbouring countries have begun expressing of what is threatening them as a result of the spread of the disease of the sectarian division and attempts of exporting the Shiite Islamic revolution under a new attire different from that during the eight-year Iran Iraq war.

Although statements and fears of the Saudi minister are real in that of destabilizing the situation in the entire region, the other face of them and the truth, is their timing.

As this situation was evident from the first time and as America is the occupying state upon which lies the responsibility for Iraq's unity, safety and security is aware of that and it is the party that seeks to draw a strategy of future cooperation and alliance with followers of the Shiite sect, considering them the more flexible and openness towards the American aims in the region, the truth about the Saudi foreign minister's statements is not as a criticism of the American politics nor a demonstration of fear from a new situation but rather a service offered to and a card of pressure the US uses on the secret ally that has begun to step over the red lines by refusing to abide by desires of America, the stronger ally. That disobedience is represented by its nuclear program, insistence on depriving the American companies of future investments represented by selling nuclear fuel to Iran and sharing Iran in its share of the southern Iraq's oil revenues. Today there is the drawing up of the constitutional structure that would guarantee appropriation of a proportion of oil revenues to Shiite religious leaders who in their turn would spend on projects of infrastructure in Iran.
