Very misleading article.
The "majority Sunni population" of Iraq is actually at most 20% of the population, though they had dominated Iraq since the time of the Ottoman conquest in 1534. Mosul is majority Sunni Arab, but not Iraq.
60% or so of Iraqis are Shia Arabs, with the remaining 20% Kurds, who are more or less outside the Iraqi Arab feud between Shia and Sunni.
The author here is trying to imply that the protestors are unhappy that their majority is oppressed, when what they really want is for their minority to return to its centuries-long position of oppressing the others.
Once Syria falls...the Sunnis will join forces and enter Iraq and continue the violence east...and if the US isn’t careful - and supports the current leadership in Iraq, then the support will go for Iranian influence and dominance. Oh what a mess we made by not making sure there was a balance of power that would go against Iran and not for it!
Yes, they’re sorting out the biggest winner of the Iraq War; I think its fairly clear who was the biggest loser of that conflict. One thing it did prove was that all people with a Yale undergraduate degree and a Harvard MBA are not intelligent.
The writer has a Christian first name in many of these reports comming out of the middle east reporters who are either sunni or shite have no qualms about inserting their agenda. Because the source may be Christian his report may have some merit.At first I thought this may be about the Kurds who have had some contention about Mosul.
In any event if the place (Iraq) does start to fall apart will the zero regime implement the Plugs (Joe Biden) solution ?
