Iraq could dissolve Parliament, leading to instability

Sectarian violence in the region could split the country

January 4, 2013

In a move that could draw Iraq back into the throws of religious infighting and potential civil war, the fledgling Baghdad government may be on the brink of dissolving parliament within days, a source tell U.S. News.

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who leads the Shiite majority government, has used strong-arm tactics to marginalize opponents, mostly among minority Sunnis, says an official at private intelligence company Stratfor. These actions, along with some spill over from the civil war in Syria, have lead to violent protests in Iraq in recent days.
The Iraq government may dissolve the parliament in as soon as 48 hours, according to Iraqi sources and media reported by Stratfor.

Jeremiah's prophecy of doom on Babylon predicts the cites of the land of Chaldea will be set on fire as the fourth judgment. Will this latest instability in the government of Iraq lead to the burning?
