HOW THE SUPREME COUNCIL OF THE ISLAMIC REVOLUTION SAVED IRAQ
It is generally accepted that the Supreme Council of the Islamic Revolution of Iraq (ISCI) has become such a "local liberal" cooperating with the occupation and adapting to the imposed political system after 2003. Yes, in many respects this is a correct judgment, because after the assassination of the legendary Ayatollah Seyed Muhammad al-Baqir, ISCI finally decided to focus on domestic politics, even if it was collaborating with the dictatorship of Paul Bremer*. However, behind the scenes of the game of "liberals", there was a violent Islamic activity, which will certainly manifest itself years later. The Americans fell for the trick of the Supreme Council and allowed them to participate in the political life of Iraq (the situation was complicated by the fact that no one wanted to cooperate with the invaders, except for Sistani and the local traitors of the defectors, so there was no particular choice).
From the first days it became clear that the Iraqi quota system imposed by the Americans was doomed to collapse; it only took time to be sure of this. Meanwhile, the ISCI was smoothly pursuing its "revolutionary policy" (what the Yankees call "pro-Iranian"). For example, one of these "tactical maneuvers" was a success with the integration of BADR * 1 into army units, the federal police and the Ministry of the Interior. Over time, yesterday's fighters against Saddam have become one of the most powerful political parties in the country, forming the Fatah coalition and achieving a majority in parliament, are one of the main anti-American forces in Iraq. Obviously, the Supreme Council played an important role in the merits of Hadi al-Ameri (head of the BADR).
The presence in the "democratic" political space built by the Americans allowed ISCI to legally carry out social and political activities. Thus, the Islamic Revolutionary Council of Iraq was able to "gain a foothold behind enemy lines." According to the logic of events, one can ask the question - "why the enemy?" After all, it would seem that "interaction" has been established between the Supreme Soviet and Washington within the framework of domestic Iraqi politics. The explanation for the fictitious cooperation between the parties lies in Iran's foreign policy. Based on the new reality of Iraq after 2003, Tehran immediately endowed its Iraqi allies with a certain role, for example, predominantly "radical" Sadridists were supposed to take on the function of fighters against the occupiers, and parties like ISCI and Dawa were to impose a political struggle on pro-American lackeys in parliament. Therefore, returning to the question above, we can briefly summarize. Despite initial formal cooperation with the occupying forces, the ISCI has been and remains a staunch ally of the Islamic Republic. What can be found confirmation from a small part of the facts of the foreign policy of the Supreme Soviet.
The fact is that ISCI is a complex structural network that includes various military, political and religious organizations. Therefore, it was not a problem for the Supreme Council to make a temporary "compromise" with Washington, because having great public authority, coupled with a wide ramified system of functioning of "secret" supporters of ISCI, the Council calmly bends its line straight from Satan's lair (I mean political activity under the nose of the American occupation). Therefore, even the formal "interaction" of the top of the party with the Yankees at the beginning of the occupation did not prevent the supporters of the Islamic Revolution Council of Iraq from participating in the partisan struggle against the occupiers.
Further more, because based on the continuing dynamics of the gradual weakening of American influence in Iraq, the leadership of the Islamic Revolutionary Council immediately takes advantage of the emerging opportunities. For example, the Saudis accused ISCI of supporting Shiite protesters in the midst of the Islamic awakening at the turn of 2011-2012. Well, a little later, the Supreme Council quite openly outlined its "pro-Iranian" direction and recalled its historical support for occupied Palestine.
Output. In the recent history of Iraq, despite the colossal problems in the face of the American occupation, ISCI has once again demonstrated an amazing political sense, high-quality pragmatism and the ability to remain true to its principles, ideas and worldview. The Supreme Council of the Islamic Revolution of Iraq took part in the defense of the Islamic Republic from Western aggression under the command of Saddam, made a colossal contribution to the collapse of the Baath regime, carried out an "internal coup" in Iraq occupied by NATO by creating a "state within a state" and became the main striking force in the defeat of the Takfiris. As can be guessed from the chain of the indicated enemies of the Islamic Revolution, the next target of attack will be Zionism * 2.
* - The late ISCI leader, the famous Ayatollah Muhammad Bakir al-Hakim, never concealed his hostility to the occupiers and actively encouraged the Iraqi people to resist, in fact, this moment reflects the real customer of the assassination of ISCI leader.
* 1 - BADR is officially believed to be the former armed wing of the ISCI. This was done specifically with the aim of expanding the number of parties to fight in the country's parliament. In fact, BADR is still a part of ISCI network.
* 2 - This is not so hard to believe, given that the ISCI has an "official" armed wing in the person of Saraya Al-Ahoura, which can join the allied factions of Iraqis located in Syria at any time.
