More than 10,000 Iraqi Christians protest in Iraq’s Dahuk

Baghdad – More than 10,000 Iraqi Christians demonstrated Thursday in the northern Dahuk province, demanding self-rule in their area and restoration of a clause in the new elections law that would guarantee their representation in provincial councils. >>>>>

The game of divide and conquer continues in Iraq.  Iraq was a secular nation during the time of Saddam Hussein.  It appears that until the U.S. invaded, Iraqis were under one national, and even non-religious banner.  Now, there are several minority groups seeking independence, based on religion.  I’m not sure if this is a good or bad thing, seeing as the U.S. is a natural broker in the region.  Even if the Christians ever did get their way to be self-ruled, the secular powers that are guiding it right now would never let them be as sovereign as they hope for.
