Then you have what Bazarni and co did , that was the deal with Erdogan, and Turkey allowed the Kurd people to be attacked and did nothing.. Some leader Bazarni is and his Rhetoric on Independence is just bluster to keep his postion, while he does that and cut that deal with Erdogan and the MNR Chief, this continues to happen.
Turkey part of NATO, why, how, and who's benefit was it allowed to join.
Wild-rider. In 2011 the Obama administration Pushed the Saudis and Turks, Bahrain ,Kuwait Qatar to stop funding this group. Of Course, the Sunni’s state dictatorships had no intention of stopping. In 2012 the USA took a lone stand against Jahbat El Nursa Front. http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2012/12/201759.htm
It pushed Turkey to close its borders to them and what was known to be ISIL ,still no action was taken.
Here is your real problem and the sooner people recognize the key issues the better. Erdogan as led a corrupt endemic policy against Assad as his main foreign policy, and his reason as always been the same, to stop the Syrian Kurds taking a enclave of Syria and fighting the Sunny extremists who sponsors are the countries listed above.
Several years ago, it was well known the former Bathists had set up groups in Syria, and Mosul,. Turkey did not close its borders to Kurdistan and Iraq to Jahbat El Nursa Front and ISIL until they had got there people into Iraq via Turkey.
Erdogan is a dictator, no ifs buts or maybes , it what he is. Is well documented from 2009 he wanted to change the Turkish Constitution , that would allow him to take up a presidential position against the constitution..He was doing a PUTIN and unfortunately the Kurd people have a dictator who refused to leave office 2 years ago, and with his side kick at the MNR, they cut a deal with Erdogan on Oil.. Shahrastani was never the problem, he was the answer to IOC's problems in Kurdistan.
He was approached by Western Oil company’s to help them get paid, and he agreed to help, but then you had these to mad fanatics in Kurdistan doing illicit deals, smuggling oil and keeping the $$$$$$$$.
We are where we are because of the Kurd Lobbyists in Washington, and the Turks doing deals. How many American Generals took up positions on IOC’s from the West. I can name half a dozen.
The Kurdish people suffer , and this oil bonanza in Kurdistan as been built on the back of Investors, with the Kurds not contributing anything and insisting they take over security of the IOC's while fleecing them, stopping them putting out news of what oil as been discovered.
Yes there are two sides to a story, but both lead back to the ruling family’s, corruption , and Turkey Dictatorship who have the oil, have vast amount of money from oil sales and the IOC's have nothing to show for what they have achieved.
I smelt the coffee in 2009, and made a point of finding out where all this was leading, how corrupt the Ruling family’s are.
Is Germany waiting to arrest a Talabani? How many Kurdish Journalist have been killed for trying to get the real story out, of and while I am on this subject.
With luck and good planning the PKK and Syrian Kurds will link up and work with the Iranian Kurds and the dynamics will change.
Can you recall the Kurds smuggling oil in 2009/2010 and Obama Whitehouse tore into them, this is how these ruling fam
Hello again - "wonder who got them these really nice toyotas they were driving when they entered Iraq through Syria where the US and Allies were (and still are) more than happy to provide support on that other side of the border ...."
It's a tough one to talk about - especially the arming of rebels in Syria against Assad's regime. I guess how are they continuing to fund themselves is a big question that needs answering. Or more poignant, who is complicit in helping them get oil to market? The stories and links below are quite interesting.
Nice find Dragonfly but there is always too sides of a story, the fact that Ruben works for the pentagon should be very telling. maybe Barzani should also ask the US about this ISIS group. Who has been funding them? and making it possible even for them to exist ... wonder who got them these really nice toyotas they were driving when they entered Iraq through Syria where the US and Allies were (and still are) more than happy to provide support on that other side of the border .... could it be that the main issue with Barzani, is that he isn't a puppet put in power by the west (States and Allies) ? and we know how these guys finish and what happens after we 'give' them democracy..... Libya springs to mind
Perhaps is it time to start doing things differently
i am so fed up with all this b....... regular payments need and should be sorted now its not rocket science. The truth is and i keep saying this the krg have no intenion of making the payments there interest is to have the oil and its cash for themselves
