President Barack Obama said on Friday the United States was still in the planning process for a response to the chemical weapons use in Syria.
“All their interests and facilities in Iraq and the region will be targeted by our militants if the United States insists on attacking Syria,” a spokesman for the Iraqi militia group al-Nujaba’a told Reuters by telephone, without giving details.
Al-Nujaba’a is an umbrella group which includes Iraqi Shi’ite militants who have crossed into neighboring Syria to fight alongside troops loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Assad is from the Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shi’ite Islam.
The group includes fighters of the Asaib al-Haq and Kata’ib Hezbollah militias and the Mehdi army militia of anti-U.S. Shi’ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, which has given a tough time to the US forces in Iraq , and especially when they attacked the Holy Shrine of Najaf. But later On Muqtada al Sadr , Liquidated the Militia as His Party took part in the Iraqi Politics and , which still have its representation in the Parliament .
Syria’s war has been a delicate foreign policy problem for Iraq’s Shi’ite leadership. Baghdad is close to Iran, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s ally, but insists it takes no sides as the Syrian conflict widens a regional Shi’ite-Sunni divide.
Shi’ite militants threatened to strike U.S. interests in Iraq in September last year over a film about the Prophet Mohammad that triggered protests in Libya, Egypt and Yemen , and the reaction to the Protest and threats that even the Western Countries have to distance themselves away from the Picture .
And even on the Matter of US strike against the Syria , it have proven that all the Muslims are United against it , except the Wahabi Monarchies like Saudi Arabia , Jordan , Gulf Sheikhdoms , Qatar , which are totally under US influence and always have been a part of the Zionist Conspiracies to weaken the Muslim Unity , and the interests .
