The alliance between the United States and Saudi Arabia against Iran appears to have come to an end, and with it is also terminated the opposition between the Sunnites and the Shiites.

The Iraqi Shi-ite militia, trained by the Iranian Guardians of the Revolution, have been fighting for more than a year with the Arab Syrian army. Now they are officially supported and armed by Washington … for their fight against Isis on Iraqi soil.

In fact, a network has been created among the Iraqi shi-ite militias – such as Brigada Badr, Asaib Ahl al-Haq and many others – and the coalition led by the Pentagon.

Indeed, the Pentagon and the Guardians of the Revolution have been sharing the same military base in Iraq for several months.
