The history and current position of Christians in Iraq
The story of Assyrian Christianity
From the good folks at

They speak the vernacular Jesus spoke — Syriac, a.k.a. Aramaic. And in a unique twist, I think the Catholic splitoff (the Chaldean Catholic Church) from the ancient Assyrian Church (formerly called Nestorian by non-Assyrians) is bigger than its parent.

Summary: They fear American rule and its probable aftermath, including renewed persecution from America’s anti-Hussein allies, the Kurds, more than Hussein, with whom they can live in relative peace.
