    Iraq says thousands take to streets in south
    Associated Press |Published: 10.05.19 , 18:55

    Iraqi officials and a member of the semi-official human rights commission say thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in two southern cities and have set fire to political party offices.


    An Iraqi security official and the rights commission official say protesters in Nasiriyah have set ablaze the offices of two political parties in the restive southern city.


    The two officials said the security forces responded with fire, but there was no immediate word on casualties. The officials described the protest as "very large." In another southern city, Diwaniyah, protesters marched toward local government offices. There were no reports of violence there.

    It's going to take more than half of an armored BCT to "stabilize" this ensuing hot mess, even if "the plan" is to solidify the Kurdish "autonomous zone" from the chaos to the south between the Sunnis vs Shias and Arabs vs Persians. I've got to wonder about those F-16 IQs and all the other equipment and how soon the Iranians and everyone else will be divvying it all up, never mind Daesh?

    So is this the Kurds and the Sunnis going down on the Shias, Bana Sadir and the great mass of Iranian troops, al qud, Revolutionary Guards etc, or is this just a bunch of chaos.

    Back in 1990 when all this began in Iraq, Iraq was divided into thirds, with a Saddam/Sunni/Bath Party center a Shia south, and a Kurdish north, above the 38th line. And guess what, some 30 years later, the divisions are the same, EXCEPT IRAN HAS TURNED IRAQ INTO IRAN WEST, FULLY DEPLOYED STAGGERING NUMBERS OF SHIA ARMED MILITIAS, ACTIVE DUTY IRANIAN TROOPS, ALONG WITH BUILDING THE ROAD ALL THE WAY TO LEBANON AND GENERALLY IN FULL CONTROL.

    Now if this the Sunni/Bath Party/Kurdish forces saying to hell with Iran and the Shia, then Iraq is going to go tactical nuclear and we will see the total failure of our entire Iraq policy since 1990. Scratch and Iraqi leader, and you end up with Nebuchanezer, or Xerxes the Great, or Saddam or whatever dictator you want. While Trump was allowing Erdogan to take over Syria it looks like Iran was taking over Iraq. Checkmate
