Even Saddam took longer to defeat the Kurds. This battle barely lasted a few hours. The PMU is too powerful for the Peshmarga. It is not the peshamarga of the past. This is a new generation that hasn't been tested like the old elements were, so not surprised they didn't put up a fight. And good for the Kurdish generals for retreating and not causing any casualties, not worth the fight.



Interestingly enough ASHOOR, there's a video on why Arab armies aren't very effective. Saddam's military wasn't effective because having your military too strong would've just ousted him then. To a dictator, the military is more or less an internal security force than an actual force.

From -> http://www.rudaw.net/english/middleeast/iraq/24012014

It's the 3rd paragraph.

"The Nineveh Plain has the largest population of Christians in Iraq. They make up around 40 percent of the population of the planned new province. They now live in a so-called disputed area: Iraqi territory that Kurdistan claims for its autonomous region."

40% is almost half. Also take into account that, as Kurds, you've been given an autonomous region even though Kurds collectively make up less than 25% of Iraq...
To deny Assyrians having a region would be complete hypocrisy.

No no, I didn't mean being racist because we dislike a horrible religion! ..Trust me, I hate it maybe more than you do!! Maybe more than anyone does! I honestly believe that the world without it would be a better place, not perfect!!, but definitely better!


I meant with racist, that we generally reject anyone who isn't an Assyrian. Sometimes even if they're Christians. For example, my cousin has got a Latina girlfriend (I'm not sure what she is, maybe Brasilian) and she is Christian, but she suffers because she notices that my aunt (my cousin's mom) doesn't like her. She once even cried in front of my aunt telling her she wished she had been born an Assyrian to be able to make her happy and get her blessing. My aunt literally replied "yeah, I wish you were born Assyrian too. I would have loved you more"..

I don't think that's the idea either. We usually like some who's of similar background or culture to us, like Armenians, Greeks, Maronites, etc.

He's half Maghrebi and European which is completely different from Middle Eastern and Eastern Mediterranean based culture.

And Assyrians are once again in the middle of it. Hopefully it doesn't escalate too much.

How many Assyrians are in Kirkuk though?
EDIT: I checked, there's only 2,000. They should go to the Nineveh Plains.

Had his Latina girlfriend had a different background other than Christianity, I would have said NO! I would have been on my aunt's side. BUT the girl is Christian from a Christian background, just like all other latinas/latinos.
I always look at the religion first, mrzurnaci! I feel like that is the most important criterion to determine whether to be or not to be with a person.


The problem with Yasinn here is that even if he does convert to Christianity, he can't drag his whole dad's side of the family with him! He is not originally Christian! For me, that is the taboo. So I'm trying to think of as much "damage control" as I can. Obviously the girl has fallen for him too (from I got) and let's be honest here, with the reputation of having fallen for a "guy with a muslim background" no Assyrian man will ever wanna marry her! So I'm guessing the least he can do is become a Christian, for the sake of both of them and the sake of the family. The situation will still be very messed up, but Christianity -in my eyes- is always some kind of progress.
Although this should not mean that I am supporting this marriage in any way or form!!! I think the bride and groom should sit down and talk. REALLY talk.

I don't understand what is your problem? Assyrian homeland belongs to Assyrians and not Kurds. Kurds can't even protect their own homeland. So Kurds should leave Assyrians alone and do their own politics. Let Assyrians be happy with their own homeland.

Sunni Muslim Kurds don't want to protect those lands. The very first attack by our enemies and Kurdish ****merga will ran like rats and give it for free to our enemies. Sunni Muslim Kurds will give Assyrian land to the Arabs in the first place, like they gave away Shengal and Kirkuk away.

So, maybe when Assyrians will rule their region, they will protect and defend their homeland from Arabs.
