Savages being the Moslem iraqis who take the time out of their pathetic little lives to contribute to the violence in their country instead of rebuilding it.
Saddam was a savage and there is no doubt in my mind that the kurds have suffered a great deal under Saddam. Wat it was was genocide clean and simple. There is no doubt of that.
on the other hand, Kurds have been harassing the Assyrians for way to long, under saddam or not.
The Assyrians deserve a safe environment just as much as kurds do.
they have more of a right to these lands. their ancestors have lived there for centuries. kurds are a nomadic people. I dont oppose them having a homeland, but the idea of them kicking other indiginous peoples off lands that belong to them reminds me of the turkish attitude. and then I think about who helped the turks in 1915.
I dont hate kurds of today, but the attitude of some is starting to get on my nerves. Live at peace, or dont live at all!
PS: Rumtaya, sorry I havnt been posting much in the Assyrian section...I'l try to post more often.
how is everything brother?
PPS: I'm Irish and Armenian...
Oh man, you are just so misinformed.
You are acting like these Assyrians are angels.
Let me tell you something.
When I and my family were in the cold mountains with our weapons during the genocidal campaign of Saddam, hungry and ill.
we were protecting our women,children culture language our homeland of being massacred, destroyed.
During that, these Assyrians by the thousands were in Baghdad smoking havana cigars,
They were playing with Saddams sons Uday and Qusay.
Many of those Assyrians were in Saddams batallions, generals ordering the executions of thousands of Kurds.
What are you talking about men?
Hundreds of thousands of Kurds have given their lives for a day of freedom like this one.
You clearly do not know anything!!!
Assyrians are not like Armenians.
Armenians have kept their aim for preserving Armenian culture and an independent Armenia ever since the fall of the Ottoman Empire.
Assyrians are very Iraq-loyal. And every Iraqi agrees with me about this fact.
They had very high rankings and positions during every Iraqi government.
Also in Syria they are very nationalistic for Syria.
Have you ever heard of the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria? They were very organised and the Syrian people preferred them to rule Syria.
But the Assad family killed 20.000 of them in a week, bombing their cities along with them.
There are many Kurdish opposition groups in Syria, lately Syrian authorities killed hundreds of Kurds because they were battling Syrian security apparatus (mainly run by Assyrians)
And how about Assyrian opposition? Nothing nothing nothing!!!
You are not from these countries so that makes your knowledge so low about them!
Now since they see their position being threatened (since their father and master Saddam is gone)....
they try to give the image that they are a poor and loose minority being deprived from their rights and that they have a homeland in an area which is inhabited by 95% non-Assyrians.
Are you really believing everything they say?
Man, their propaganda is really a big joke.
PS: I am not waiting for any Azzyrian to reply my post, I am waiting for the quoted one.
