Trouble In Iraq – Not Before Time

Some ways in which the Iraqi people are expressing their anger at the US for blatant war crimes in Iraq a day or so ago.  They must find waysto work together now to eject the US military from their country or forever bow to US oppression. I get the impression they have now seen enough of that and the time is right to act. I wish them success.  The US dogs have had their day.  Time to go home.

Quotes from FARS News Agency article: “Iraqi People Continue Sit-In in Front of US Embassy for 2nd Day”

“The protestors spent the last night in tents which had been erected in areas near the US embassy amid demands by the Iraqi prime minister to leave the region. 

The Arabic-language Mawazin News quoted an informed source in the US mission as saying on Wednesday that “the Iraqi anti-terrorism forces have entered the region and deployed in front of the embassy and areas near the mission in the Green Zone”. 

Images also showed that a number of armored vehicles belonging to the anti-terrorism forces along with Humvee vehicles have been stationed near the US embassy. 

Thousands of Iraqis on Tuesday participated in the funeral ceremony of Hashd al-Shaabi martyrs killed in the US Sunday attack against their position, as they moved towards Washington’s embassy in Baghdad. 

The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel reported on Tuesday that participants in the funeral ceremony declared a sit-in in areas near the US embassy and some of them erected tents in the area. 

According to the report, a large number of Iraqi people, carrying the flags of Iraq and Hashd al-Shaabi, are moving towards the suspension bridge that leads to the US embassy from al-Janaderiyeh region. 

They also carry placards to condemn the US aggression against Hashd al-Shaabi and Iraq’s sovereignty, calling for the expulsion of the American ambassador. 

The participants in the funeral ceremony also warned Iraqi legislators that if they do not approve a bill to expel the US forces, they will not allow them to enter the parliament anymore.”
