    Kurdistan? Really?....

    Agha Petros - Wikipedia - WTF?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agha_Petros I was doing some random Assyrian history browsing (yes, I do that time to time, it's cool I know :shades:) and found the Wikipedia article about the famous Assyrian General Agha Petros.  From what I read, there were a lot of negative connotations in that...
