Armed wing of the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (EIIL) ---- After paying attention on the twin towers in the USA in 2001, the government of George W. Bush, the U.S., and Tony Blair, Britain, invaded Iraq in 2003 and destroyed by the State commanding an iron fist by the Baath Party (Nationalist Arab Sunni majority - a branch of Islam) Saddam Hussein on the grounds, false, weapons of mass destruction. In search of a quick action to the interests of imperialism, control energy reserves, petroleum, and political, military and strategic control of the region, supported by Israel and the monarchies of the Persian Gulf, the Americans and British destroyed the Iraqi state, dividing it. ---- From then began a civil war for control of the "new" Iraqi state and a resistance struggle against imperialist troops. A portion of local politicians ethnic Kurds and Shiites, who were out of power during the rule of Saddam Hussein, supported the invasion. In turn, the U.S. and Britain supported the formation of a puppet government composed of Kurds, Shiites and Sunnis. However, the conflicts were incited in that ancient groups out of power began to get revenge. There was no possible alliance for shared Neoliberal State control proposed by the U.S. and accepted by the ruling classes of these ethno-political and religious groups.

Thus, the policy of NATO, Israel and the U.S. to Iraq through the redesign and the division of the entire middle east. The dismantling of Iraq increased resistance to occupation with groups linked to al Qaeda. Source Sunni jihadists composed of several parts of the world, this group created the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (EIIL), with laws based on religious texts of Islam, forming a new Caliphate, also sponsored by the USA. Front rebels and Al Nursa EILL are linked sponsored paramilitary forces and trained by the Western military alliance. Not coincidentally, broke with Al-Qaeda to focus on the struggle for the formation of that State which comprises northeastern Syria and almost all regions of the Sunni Arab majority in Iraq.

Partially engraving shows the geopolitical division of Iraq

The foundation of the Islamic State of Iraq, the Caliphate, is linked to U.S. agenda to shred Iraq and Syria in two separate areas: a Shiite Arab Republic and the Republic of Kurdistan. This project has the support of Israelis and dictatorships and absolute monarchies of Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the Emirates.

Therefore, the EILL is linked both to internal problems of the region as the action of imperialism in the Arab countries and Central Asia a few decades ago. In the 80s the U.S. supported the Mujaheddin (political-religious-ethnic groups) in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union and has supported militias and Sunni paramilitary forces began attacking Shiites.

So on one side we have an American bloc with Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf monarchies, redesigning all that territory to its largest political, military and economic dominance. The other side is Iran, the Lebanese group Hezbollah and Syria, with the support of Russia, and resisting the project. The disputes between these two blocks and the imperialist action that favored global jihadism, which now focuses on training EILL, does not favor the working class of these countries. All these states are placed next to the ruling class. Workers does not fit the defense of one of the two political blocs, the formation of a state controlled by certain political groups. The construction of self-government workers passing through the ransom of internationalism and socialist revolution is needed.
