Ramzy Mardini, an expert on Iraq at the Atlantic Council, had said to The New York Times correspondent on April 30, 2014 that "Maliki is not a democrat. He's not a nationalist or sectarian ideologue. His ideology and doctrine are grounded in survivalism.

"Unfortunately for al-Maliki, the scope and depth of cooperation he will receive from Sunni tribal leaders will be limited because Sunni threat perceptions are caught between al-Qaida and his Shiite-dominated government," said Ramzy Mardini, a Mideast expert at the Washington-based Atlantic Council think tank.

Ramzy Mardini, an expert on Iraq, said the attacks were probably "prescheduled for the anniversary. He also said the latest violence reflects the Sunni-Shiite sectarian tensions raging next door in Syria.
He believes such attacks illustrate the revival of the "capability and confidence" of al Qaeda in Iraq, buoyed by a Syrian uprising "spearheaded by Sunni militancy."
It stands to reason that they are targeting the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. The Shiite-dominated government is helping neighboring Iran, the largest Shiite nation in the world and a supporter of the Alawite-dominated Syrian government.
"Al Qaeda in Iraq is becoming less exclusive to Iraq. They are trying to channel energy and piggyback off the Syrian revolution by aiming to merge Iraq and Syria into one theater of sectarian war," said Mardini, adjunct fellow at the Iraq Institute for Strategic Studies in Beirut.
"Given that Maliki is helping Iran prop up the Syrian regime, AQI is advertising their cause and looking to attract the support and resources of militant groups in Syria."
Mardini said Sunni militants are baiting al-Maliki and Shiites to retaliate.
