Hundreds of supporters of Shi'ite Muslim cleric Moqtada al-Sadr stormed into Baghdad's Green Zone and broke into the Iraqi parliament building.

The staggering scenes came after Sadr denounced Iraq's politicians' for their failure to reform a political quota system blamed for rampant corruption.

Upset over a you tube video, no doubt!
Wasn’t Biden just there a couple of days ago? Is the Obama admin stirring up revolts again?
Yes he was just there. Hmmm.
How much US military equipment and intel will Isis/Iran get from this?
Some messages are too sensitive to be transmitted electronically these days.
All those American soldiers fighting in Iraq who were killed, wounded, or crippled ....
They were heading for Burlingame but took the wrong off ramp.
Yep......VERY UPSETTING. OBAMA IS GIVING IRAQ TO IRAN AND MEANWHILE HERE HE DETRACTS THE MASSES.
Biden probably took a ton of military equipment for them.
Uh,oh....I hope the next time I see a photo of a purple finger in Iraq that the only explanation is not that someone just ate a plum.Perhaps this is what Trump was talking about when he basically said in that region you can bring the horse to the water of western democracy but you cannot make the horse drink it.
Personally I think anything we do for muslims is for nothing...except our own destruction by importing them.
Their mindset is totally contrary to western civilization and it’s a total mistake for us to think we can really give them democracy and expect them to adjust to it. That religion demands total subservience and that is what it gets.
We were wrong to invade Iraq in 2003.
We took out al-Zarqawi in 2006, why not al-Sadr?
We killed Saddam’s sons in 2003 then captured him later that year. Remember “Uday...and Cusay...are dead-ay!”?
Third world democracy: One man, one vote, one time. Our strategic policy in the region should shift from `nation-building’ to `glass parking lot’. Starting with Mecca.
and fueling the muslim driven UN,
and supporting the muslim invasion of western europe
and supporting the agenda 21 carbon shifting of wealth from the western “have nations” to the largely muslim nations of misfits.
and disabling Americas finances, bankrupting of America
and defanging it’s military
and may piss be onto him, BO
Doubtful. ISIS is Sunni.
