How 5 Countries Could Become 14

SYRIA: THE TRIGGER?
Sectarian and ethnic rivalries could break it into at least three pieces:

1. Alawites, a minority that has controlled Syria for decades, dominate a coastal corridor.
2. A Syrian Kurdistan could break off and eventually merge with the Kurds of Iraq.
 
3. The Sunni heartland secedes and then may combine with provinces in Iraq to form Sunnistan. 
 
SPILLOVER TO IRAQ

In the simplest of several possibilities,northern Kurds join Syrian Kurds. Many central areas, dominated by Sunnis, join Syria's Sunnis. And the south becomes Shiitestan. It's not likely to be so clean.

Tonight in my journey
In my past,
In my memory,
In my words,
In every words, roars, in our collective cries,
I saw you
Alive, undying and eternal
As I was roaming
On the mountain top
Flying over Qandil, Pire Magroon, Sipan
I saw you,
I saw you
In Diarbakir, in Kirmashan,
In Sna, in Dersim, in Qamishlu
In every corner of my collective being,
In my collective memory,
I could only hear you
I could only hear your voice,
As you were creating,
You were in constant creation,
As you were constructing word,
Single words, one by one,
Each word was to revive:
A beheaded innocent
A child buried alive,
A mother’s cry
Witnessing her children’s deaths

  • The UN General Assembly’s annual resolutions on Iran have denounced the violations of human rights with ever-growing majority;
  • The government has totally ignored the recommendations made during the 2010 UPR and utterly failed to fulfill even the recommendations it agreed to.
