#BREAKING
Oct 7 - Baghdad, #Iraq
New video of today's protests and security forces targeting demonstrators.
#BREAKING
Oct 7 - Baghdad, #Iraq
Protesters storming & setting fire to the Badr (Corps) Organization headquarters in the Iraqi capital.

The Badr Org., headed by Hadi al-Ameri, is known for its strong ties to #Iran's regime.
#UPDATE
Oct 7 - Baghdad, #Iraq
Reports indicate four individuals, including a senior Iraqi MP, died in a fire incident at a hotel.

My take:
Considering the fact that some Iraqi MPs have accused #Iran's regime of murdering Iraqi protesters, this is quite suspicious.

Oct 6 - Najaf, southern #Iraq
Iraqi security forces, SWAT teams, seen firing directly at protesters and using heavy machine guns to disperse demonstrators.

My take:
These are methods very similar to those used by #Iran's regime against its protesters.
Oct 6 - #Iraq
Scenes of Iraqi protesters with flags coming under heavy fire by Iraqi security forces (most likely #Iran-backed Hashd al-Shaabi (PMF) militias who are armed, funded & trained by the IRGC).
#IraqProtests
This video vividly shows peaceful demonstrators in #Iraq protesting for their rights and how security forces (most likely #Iran-backed militia groups) open fire on civilians.

I've read some interesting comments about the #HongKongProstests and whether or not things would be going the same way if they had the 2nd Amendment or not.
While I believe it's absolutely true that the PLA would have no qualms about using military force against an armed resistance, I don't believe that means the protests would be shorter lived, or less effective.
Opening up to full scale war like that, for either side, is a big step. This isn't like what is happening in #IraqProtests right now, where you have a region that has seen almost constant armed conflict for decades, and is mostly filled with very poor people.
