Basra attack a prelude to Iran attack?

This analysis argues that the apparently unprovoked offensive against the Mahdi Army in Basra, Iraq, may be a prelude to an attack on Iran. A significant part of this thinking is that the Mahdi Army would presumably retaliate for such an attack; therefore, it is better to soften it up now.

An obvious question is whether Iran is so isolated in the Muslim world that the Mahdi Army is its only ally. I doubt it.
