----------- HANDBOOK PROPOSAL -----------


To our Brave Men and Women in Uniform who are Heroically Fighting for Freedom, Honor, Justice, & Hope for all Mankind.

Amer H. Hanna


It is not about you and it is definitely not about me, it is always about doing the right thing in the right place and at the right time for the sake of our country and our people! ~Amer Hanna Fatuhi

The proposed cross-cultural communication handbook could have has some far-reaching implications with major impacts on our lives and businesses.

Those who are quite familiar with my books and studies, realize that I am an author who strongly believes that we can build solid bridges between the US and the world in a way that will significantly benefit both parties. My main focus in the book entitled WINNING IRAQ AGAIN soon to be submitted for publishing is not why we lost Iraq which negatively impacted the USA for over a decade on every economic and social level, but on how we could win it back by righting the wrong. This unique handbook could simply act as a tool in reinstating the US - Iraq alliance as well as paving the way for both countries’ prosper.

My book is also not just another book about Iraq; rather it is a much needed recipe for professionally protecting our troops and a successful strategy to win Iraq through winning back the Iraqi layman, the cornerstone for any lasting and constructive US - Iraq relationship.

Iraq (ancient Mesopotamia) was the focal point of the ancient world and the land of firsts, creator of mankind’s most significant achievements; agriculture, education, medicine, health system, science, architects, fine arts and literature, you name it. It is also located in the center of the world’s conflicts, yet it is the starting point for any future solution. Iraq was and still is, Biblically, the land of Eden and the birthplace of Father Abraham. Scientifically, it is the land of order out of chaos as well as the land for peace, beauty, and prosperity.

In 521 B.C., the Babylonians appointed their own king, Nebuchadnezzar IV, and the city rebelled. Darius’ gigantic army defeated the rebel army and captured Babylon. Then the Chaldean king who died fighting to the last breath and his small army (Dead or alive) were impaled inside the city.
In 482 B.C., Babylon rebelled against the occupation of the Median Empire, killing the Persian ruler and defeating the Persian army. Xerxes, the king, sent an enormous army under the command of his brother-in-law to capture the city in the beginning of October. The Persian army destroyed the temples and took away the idol of the Babylonian god Mardukh and once again, over three thousand Chaldean revolutionists were impaled inside the city on or around October 6, 482 BC.

Since 2013, the day October 6, 2013 was approved by most Chaldean political parties, cultural and socials organizations and activists all over the world. October 6 became the official Chaldean Martyr’s Day.

Chaldean Martyr's Day on October 6 is not just about honoring and remembering those who fell defending the Chaldean name throughout our long and deep history, but it is all about how we keep those sacrifices by our ancestors alive. It is also about keeping the Chaldean Nation and its diehard people free from threats of terror and persecution.

If the blood of the martyrs is the seed of our nation, then our Chaldean nation is the blood vessel of the prosperous future. ~ Amer Hanna Fatuhi, Visual Artist and Historian.

The American flag is a symbol of Freedom, Liberty and Human Rights


Who knows better than those who used to be persecuted in their own homeland how great the United States of America is?

Dear All, I am quite aware of this fact first hand as I was detained, tortured for defending the freedom of speech and for being one sharp voice of the indigenous people of Iraq - Chaldean Babylonians.  I fled my homeland after been sentenced to death; I was sentenced to death three times by Saddam’s regime.

I have never been more free and more alive during my entire life the way I feel as an American now. I am willing and ready to take a bullet any time defending the US Flag and what stands for.

May the LORD Bless America; the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
