Sulaymaniya liberated 20 years ago today

"The 1991 Uprising in As Sulaymaniyah or Silêmanî was one of biggest 1991 uprisings in Iraq. As Sulaymaniyah, a Kurdish city of over 100,000 population was the first Iraqi city to be captured by rebels and the last one to fall."

It's interesting to see the uprisings of 2011 happening 20 years after the Iraqi uprising of 1991. Hopefully this time the dictators actually fall, and the people will have real democracy and freedom.
