Live political debate turns into outright fist fight

(CBS) - People often cite the vitriolic and extreme nature of some of our political debates here in the United States versus other places in the world. After watching this video, I might have to disagree - we've got nothing on the level that the debate in this video reaches. Check it out.

I truly wish I knew Arabic so could give you some insight on what exactly this is about (the video title references that this is in relation to Iraq), but coming from television news I can totally imagine the scene in the control room and a director screaming for the camera operators to - wait for it - "cut to the chair!"

Props to Storyful for posting this amazing and insane video that shows passion in politics is far from dead in the world.
