At least 10 dead from live police fire against rioters across Iraq

At least 10 protesters were killed and more than 200 injured by live police fire as thousands of Iraqis demonstrated for the second day against unemployment, corruption and poor service. Riot police fired live rounds and other means to stop demonstrators from crossing a Tigris bridge to the fortified Green Zone of Baghdad, the seat of government and foreign embassies. At nightfall Wednesday, a curfew was imposed on the cities of Iraq.

    When peaceful protesters are shot dead its ok in iraq and they are called rioters. When the gazans riot they are called peacefull protesters and for the most part are not shot to be killed unless they are shooting or bombing Israel. What a fd world not to mention anti semetic.

    Curious. Does internal violence within a country (Iraq) make it easier or harder for forces (Iraqi Shiite militias) hostile to another country (Israel), to organize military campaigns against that other (Israel) country? Can any lessons be learned about the upheavels in Afghanistan (Taliban and Isus). It seems that Afghan unrest allowed Isus to branch out to other countries. But each situation has its own dynamic.

    Looks like when Iraq sponsored suicide bombers in Israel suicide bombers started blowing themselves up in Iraq instead! Don’t these terrorists and Israel haters realize that Those who Bless Israel will Be Blessed and those that curs Israel will be cursed! All Nations must separate themselves from the evil that lies within their Nations and remember not all Shias are bad only the Barbarian Nazis amongst them whose main goal in life is to wage war against Israel all Nations should offer them a chance to accept The Seven Noahide Laws including so not Murder but if they continue to seize power and murder others like Kurds, Sunnis, Yazidis, Jews, etc we should wage war against them since they are not really Muslims rather they are Nazis pretending to be Muslims and don’t believe in G-D at all and that is why They Murder!

    Iran is behind the people rioting in Iraq. It wants the people to overthrow the pro-U.S. government in Iraq. The more people that are shot in Iraq protesting, the more that Iran has to gain since it is waiting in the shadows for the Iraqi government to be overthrown by rioters and for the U.S. to be kicked out by the rioting people. At some point, the Iranian militias will be put into action to support the rioters rather than the Iraqi government so that they can eventually replace a pro-U.S. Iraq government with a pro-Iranian one. These Iranian controlled Iraqi militias will look like the heroes of the Iraqi people who helped them overthrow the people killing government. Iran has been planning this all along. Why do you think Sadr went to Iran for?
    Iran basically told him to choose between the Iraqi people or the Iraqi government. He chose for the people.
