It's ironic that a people that suffered so much under Saddam are treating the natives of the land (the Assyrians) this way. Such a shame.
Proud to be an Assyrian!

A shame indeed ! and I thought that minorities would ally to some extent.

What you mention here however in a rather serious way makes "sense". And that is that the Kurds of course, whenever rather quietly, intend to secede from Iraq in order to establish a Kurdish independent state, and for THIS, Assyrians and Syriacs (etc) might be a hindrance.
