We present results of SU(3) Monte-Carlo studies of a new color confinement scheme proposed recently due to Abelian-like monopoles of the Dirac type corresponding in the continuum limit to violation of the non-Abelian Bianchi identities (VNABI). The simulations are done without any additional gauge-fixing smoothing the vacuum. We get for the first time, in pure SU(3) simulations, (1) the perfect Abelian dominance with respect to the static potentials on (12 ~ 16)4 at β = 5.6 − 5.8 using the multilevel method, (2) the monopole as well as Abelian dominances with respect to the static potentials by evaluating the Polyakov-loop correlators on 243 × 4 at β = 5.6. The Abelian photon part gives zero string tension. The new SU(3) as well as the previous SU(2) results are consistent with the new Abelian picture of color confinement that each one of eight colored electric flux is squeezed by the corresponding colored Abelian-like monopole of the Dirac type corresponding to VNABI.
