Protesters chant slogans against Iraq's Shiite-led government as they wave a national flag and a Syrian revolution flag during a demonstration in Fallujah, 40 miles (65 kilometers) west of Baghdad, Iraq, Friday, Dec. 28, 2012. Thousands of Iraqi Sunnis massed along a major western highway and in other parts of the country Friday for what appear to be the largest protests yet in a week of demonstrations, intensifying pressure on the Shiite-led government. The blue placards in Arabic read, "Friday of honor." (AP Photo/ Karim Kadim)
