The ongoing imbroglio in Iraq is part of the US government’s decade-old plan to reshape the Middle East, an American investigative journalist says.

In a column for The Atlantic monthly, Jeffrey Goldberg wrote that the Middle East stability was targeted in the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

He added that a botched attempt to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and the break-up of Sudan were parts of the US-desired Middle East map.

“Iraq is, of course, divided into three states, and the Kurdish state even takes in parts of Turkish-ruled Kurdish territory,” Goldberg wrote.

He recommended Washington not to provide sanctuary for the Takfiri militants of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) currently operating in Iraq.

“It is, of course, important to invest in plans that forestall the creation of permanent jihadist safe havens, and about this the US should be vigilant, more vigilant than it has been,” the journalist wrote.

Saying that the “proxies of Saudi Arabia” are fighting a war on “battlefields across Iraq, in Lebanon and Syria,” the journalist added, “The most important first-order consequence of the [2003] Iraq invasion…[has been] a regional conflict between Sunnis and Shias for theological and political supremacy in the Middle East.”

Iraq is currently witnessing a wave of violence unprecedented in recent years.

Over the past few days, Iraqi armed forces have been engaged in fierce clashes with the ISIL terrorists, who have overrun parts of the country in the past days and have announced a so-called Islamic caliphate in Iraq.

Senior Muslim clerics have condemned the ISIL atrocities.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
