الشمس اجمل في بلادي من سواها ,
والظلام
حتى الظلام هناك اجمل,
فهو يحتضن العراق
واحسرتاه, متى انام
فاحس ان على الوسادة
من ليلك الصيفي طلا
فيه عطرك يا عراق؟ بدر شاكر السياب (via anti-imperialism)

ancient-mesopotamia:

This is a fragment of a wall relief which shows Assyrian slingers in action. The four men appear to launch small round stones into the air, aiming at the enemy troops who stand at the top of the city walls to defend their besieged city. Some of the slinger stones were excavated at the main gate of Lachish. 
From the South-West palace at Nineveh (modern Kuyunjik, Mousil city, Iraq), room XXXVI. Mesopotamia, Neo-Assyrian era, 700-692 BCE. (The British Museum, London).

The famous Old Testament prophet Jonah’s resting place has been fully destroyed in Iraq’s Mosul, Nineveh.
Nouri Al-Maliki the dictator aired the news that the Masjid in Mosul was bomed 10 minutes before it happed.  And you still question why Maliki should be out?

There is a potential solution, and peace can still be achieved, but not until Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki agrees to abide by the Iraqi Constitution, accept the mandated limit of two terms, and remove himself from government.  That includes giving up his co-positions as minister of defense and minister of the interior.  This will be difficult, because al-Maliki knows that once he has released control of the Iraqi government, he will be investigated and brought up on charges of crimes against humanity.  A warrant against him has been standing for several years in the Spanish Court.  Al-Maliki knows that, if tried in his own country, he will be convicted and face the same fate as Saddam Hussein. 
He will be dragged into the streets.
