A new revolution site?

Here's yet another place in the Arab world where the population may be rising up against oppressive rulers: Kurdish portions of Iraq.
Police and hospital officials in the northern Iraqi city of Sulaimaniyah said Monday that one person has been killed and 47 wounded during overnight protests.

A Sulaimaniyah police official said that around 2,000 people took part in scattered demonstrations around the city, 160 miles (260 kilometers) northeast of Baghdad, late Sunday. Many Kurds are frustrated with the tight grip with which the two ruling parties control the Kurdish autonomous region.

The official said Kurdish security forces opened fire in the air to disperse the crowd.

Hospital officials said around 20 people were shot, including a 17-year-old who later died of his wounds. The others were hit by flying stones.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media.
When it rains, it pours.

Well, I can only think that the marcuse marxist dems can't leave Iraq as a success in western civilization. They will have to delete it. So, this isn't surprising. If the Kurds like living a life allowing innovation and choices, they would be smart to stand up to the community organizers' and muslim bros' agitation. Otherwise, they'll get what they get. Dude.... so sad.
