Iraq is on fire

  1. Reports coming from Iraq indicate that hundreds of thousands of Iraqis (Shia, Sunni and Kurds) are taking to the streets. As we are speaking, Bassrah, which is exclusively Shia, is in the control of the protesters whereby the mayor has fled the municipal building. In Naseryeh and Ba'qoubah (Sunnies), an identical control is in effect. In Baghdad, the protesters have reached the Green Zone. In Mousel (Kurdish) Tens of thousands of protesters are overwhelming the secret police and the Bishmerkah militias. Scores of protesters have been mowed by secret police gun fire throughout Iraq.

    Minute 1.45 shows the taking down of the Bassrah Municipality.

  6. Isn't this just another typical Friday after a morning of deep prayer in the Temple. Pray in the morning then go out and destroy society in the afternoon.
     
  7. Yes it is! How did you know oh naughty Mercor? What will be destroyed is dictatorships, including the US's Maliki

  10. What do they want?


    On December 21, 2010, al-Maliki's government was unanimously approved by parliament more than 9 months after the Iraqi parliamentary election, 2010. On February 5, 2011, a spokesperson for al-Maliki said he will not run for a third term in 2014 limiting himself in the name of democracy in a nod to the protests sweeping the Arab nations.[24]
