Serious consequences: Iranian consulate attacked by protesters in Iraq

Dozens of Iraqi protesters on Sunday evening attacked the Iranian consulate in the holy Shiite city of Karbala. Al-Jazeera reports referring to eyewitnesses that, having destroyed concrete barriers around the building, the crowd tore the flag of the Islamic Republic, replacing it with Iraq.


Serious consequences: Iranian consulate attacked by protesters in Iraq


Police fired into the air to push back protesters who threw stones and burned tires in response.

No casualties were reported during the incident.



All this happens against the backdrop of ongoing unrest in Baghdad and the provinces with a Shiite majority in the south of the state. The protests are directed against the political regime and elite groups established after the 2003 war, which Iraqis accuse of embezzlement of the country's wealth, while the bulk of the population is only getting poorer.

An incident can have diplomatic consequences. Although a large part of the Iraqi population is Shia Muslim, as in Iran, the traditionally hostile relations between Arabs and Persians have a very long history. In addition, Baghdad secretly claims the Iranian province of Khuzestan with a predominantly Arab population, whose territory is rich in oil and gas, as well as a considerable amount of fertile land.

      They want, but they can’t. American PMCs shoot there without warning. For them, the local population is part of the local fauna, and shooting at it is like hunting or sport.

      These protesters are already half-starved, and despite the 21st century, they are deprived of such achievements of civilization and progress as medicine or even the law. For little money they are ready to do any job - even this one. Bandits and the CIA rule in Iraq, and almost nothing happens without their knowledge.

        Is it not the direct fault of the US invaders that such a situation in Iraq has persisted for decades and now, not without the help of the CIA and paid provocateurs, the blame is clearly shifted from a sick (USA) head to a healthy and not guilty in the economic situation (Iran) ???

          The explicit and direct fault of the West is the deliberate, direct, military destruction of Iraqi statehood since 2003. Everything that has been going on since then is on their conscience.

    Somehow Maidan smelled in Baghdad.
    Do I understand correctly that the ears of the State Department are behind these riots?
    To close the "Shiite corridor"?
    Or am I conspiring?

        Conspiracy theory (from the English conspiracy theory "conspiracy theory"), also known as conspiracy theology (literally: “doctrine (science) about the conspiracy” from the English conspiracy “conspiracy” + other Greek. λόγος “doctrine, science”) is a concept declaring certain socially significant events, certain historical phenomena, or even the course of history as a whole as a result conspiracy on the part of a certain group of people (state in the state, world government), managing this process out of self-interest, ambition or other group, clan and other interests.

    What to say. If Muslims cannot divide Allah and Christians cannot divide Christ (for a thousand years), then what is worth, in general, in this world? Tomorrow the Buddhists will split into three unequal halves. And behind them are the Hindus (almost one and a half billion). It's easier with the Hindus, choose your own god, as you wish, so there, I think, there will be fewer problems. In short, tryndets. This, if not yet taken into account, such "secular" ideologies as Marxism. Where is the world heading? A firm conviction is created that people themselves do not know what they want.

      "Where is the world heading?" ////
      -----
      The world is rolling. But not downhill, but like a cart along the unpaved road of evolution. Evolutionarily evolving. Not at the behest of reason, alas, but at the behest of an intricate mixture of instincts, feelings, ego, thoughts, collective ambitions, ideologies.
      Hence, there are so many "stumbling blocks". Continuous trips, bumps and breakages. sad
      But getting out of this common cart is impossible ...

    Between these countries there was a very cruel and bloody war. I remember the Iranian old people went to certain death in the Iraqi minefields so that the Iranian fighters, passing through the minefields, suffered as little losses as possible. This self-sacrifice of Iranian old people really surprised us then.

      I apologize, you were a witness to these events, or what? So did the old people undermine themselves? Didn’t they find donkeys there or is the life of a donkey more expensive than the life of these miserables?

        This was not concealed, but was widely covered in the Iranian media as great feats in the name of victory over "Satan" - the godless regime of Saddam Hussein. Voluntary exploits.
        Not only old people, by the way, took part in the "mine clearance", but teenagers 12 years old too.

    Do Americans want to strain Iran with another war with Iraq? Are they sure that Iraq will pull?

    Well, some do not pull it. Someone must say the first word.

    drew attention to the fact that the Iranian embassy is lit in the colors of the Ukrainian flag.
    Is Kiev’s hand visible in this? Really reached out there?
    How scary to live.

      Not a conspiracy theorist, but in Iran there are a lot of dishes and frescoes made in shades of yellow-blue. Yesterday, according to the Iranian calendar, there were 13 abans - the official day of the struggle of the Iranian people against world imperialism.
