chattels: Iraq's war of flags
chattels: The newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported Nov. 23, “This phenomenon foreshadows the end of the Shiite-Kurdish alliance in Iraq.” This alliance was one of the main factors that led to the overthrow of Saddam Hussein's regime in 2003 and has formed the successive governments that have ruled Iraq to date.
chattels: The raising of these various flags spotlights specific religious and sectarian symbols that do not belong to the Iraqi people as a whole. Their proliferation works against the idea of national belonging expressed by one Iraqi flag.
chattels: The flag issue in Iraq is an old one, and has been the subject of disputes between Iraqis since the beginning of the creation of modern Iraq in 1921. Ever since then, the flag has been repeatedly changed as the successive regimes that ruled Iraq failed to agree on a single identity bringing together all Iraqis.
chattels: The debate over the new Iraqi flag continued among political partners after 2003, and none of the proposals that could have allowed the Iraqi flag to represent Iraq in a comprehensive way have been adopted.
On Sept. 29, 2008, 250 different designs were submitted to the parliament. Decision-makers eventually settled on removing the stars that represented the Baath Party and changing how “God is great” is written on the flag, appeasing the Kurdistan Regional Government, which had refrained from using the flag in consideration of the massacres under the Baathist reign.
The flag is one of the unexpected but central issues that the Iraqi government must deal with through educational programs and cultural works within the project of comprehensive and long-term national reconciliation. chattels: wealthwatch.world/newthre...
chattels: US threatens to bypass Baghdad, arm Sunnis against IS
chattels: The United States has put Baghdad on notice that it could lose military support if Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi doesn't do more to integrate Sunnis. Congress and the Obama administration are demanding that Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi do more to combat sectarianism.
chattels: .................... Sunni tribal leaders intent on getting their concerns heard in Washington. They argue that Iranian influence runs deep in Baghdad and that Abadi's hands are tied.
chattels: "We need to put sustained pressure on the government in Baghdad to get its political house in order, move forward with national reconciliation, and finally stand up a national guard. Baghdad needs to accept, even embrace, arming Sunni and Kurdish forces in the war against [IS]. But if Baghdad won’t do that, the coalition should do so directly."
chattels: ............. the United States could bypass the Abadi government if it doesn't find a way to convince Sunnis that fighting IS is in their best interest.
chattels: None of the foregoing scenarios bodes well for Mr. Abadi I am afraid.
