It's not hard to not identify as something, unless it revolves around your physical appearance. You can easily, and I mean very easily, not identify with Iraq.Whether I like the country or not , I was born there and grew up there. I like to identify as being Assyrian only but unfortunately that is not possible yet. The country remains Iraq. When it gets split, we can talk then.
You want to know how I know this? Because everyone who I've gotten to know enough or if they were just inquisitive about what I was, I simply gave them a little history lesson about our people. I make it very clear that I am not Iranian, Russian, Iraqi, Kuwaiti, or Turkish, regardless of my family being from these countries. They accept it, and no one ever calls me by these groups, because I make it very clear that I do not belong to them.
You said you lived in Canada for quite some time, did you not? If you feel bent on identifying with a country, identify with Canada. The country that allowed you to move there because you no longer wanted to live in Iraq.You can't pick and choose a country based on who the people are and what they do to you. And trust me, I know what the idiots are doing to our people, much better than you know. I am well exposed to Iraqi news almost 24/7.
Yet you try and justify your support?
That's a silly answer. I'm guessing your okay if we don't get a country then? What is the point of this website then? Documenting our impending death as a people?But I know to distinguish between a country and its people.
