Young activists posted a video online in which a Lieutenant Colonel from Iraq's sectarian Popular Mobilization Units is seen demanding money from the shop keeper of a gold store in Iraq's capital, Baghdad. The Colonel can be heard screaming "help us a little" - citing the country's climate of abject poverty to justify his impromptu demands. He spoke angrily and displayed intimidating bodily language, commanding the seated shop keeper to "prepare the money for collection" as customers stood in awe of the Colonel's behaviour. "If my demands are not met" he bellowed, "I will make sure that your store is closed down".
Iraq must be returned to Iraqis !!
