Iraq Could Also Become History Down The Road

Reader comment on item: Countries Threatened with Extinction

Submitted by AnneM (United States), Aug 7, 2007 at 17:31

Iraq itself should also be added to the list. Because it was an artifical nation, put together by the British in the 1920's, and there are 3 different factions, sunni, shia, and kurdish. Also smaller minorities including, although in danger of extinction as a community, the Iraqi Christians. Only because of the iron fist of Saddam Hussein who kept all the different factions together because of his brutal dictatorship was there any enforced peace.

Expect down the road that now that there is no Saddam Hussein, even with the hope of democratic change, Iraq could also become history as the major factions fight to create their own nations, 3 in all, and that the minorities have no choice but to flee for their safety.
