Not only has Hillary Clinton requested that oil production be at a high level, but this article suggests that it is being kept high to destabilize Iraq and Iran: http://www.rt.com/news/saudi-arabia-oil-plot-754/ Yes, al-Maliki is a sunni, but Iran is heavily invested in his regime, and al Sadr may not heed Iran's request for him to rescind his call for al Maliki to resign: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/04/iran-tries-to-salvage-ira_n_1569204.html This article also discusses attempts by Iran to influence the character of Shi'a religious leadership towards embracing theocracy, which makes the Kurds and secularists uneasy.
The crises have paralysed government, especially parliament, which has passed no significant legislation except for the budget, while other important measures such as a hydrocarbons law regulating the country's oil sector have been delayed.
