What does America want? It's not like they're short of a long range riffle? This is too complicated to be bothered with in all honesty, however: so because Barzani's a chum of Erdogan the Krg trucked it's oil to Ceyhan but that was betting on the wrong horse as they should have stayed best mates with Baghdad? Except that Maliki was/is Baghdad and Baghdad and Erbil could agree on the day of the week it was. Apart from the fact that they have my money I'd let them all get on with it. They all need oil to keep flowing and selling and ultimately it is up to the people on the ground to say enough is enough, if that's what they want. You can play cute and fast for too long but eventually it catches up with you be it Todd, Gkp, Maliki, Barzani or whoever. Wikipedia nearly burst into flames trying to explain the who's who of it all. Seriously, get paid, get out imo. If only!
This is an anonymous BB so therefore until people meet for the first time and decide to swap numbers or not then this is their only communication medium .... School holidays always brings out the same ffs
Good thing for you is your credit will last longer if you text on here instead of your PAYG : )
THe Americans know not to trust Bazarni..You will note the US Defence Minster visited Baghdad first and then went to Kurdistan...I would imagine the conversation was Turkey action in Syria ..The Turkish Dictator know Occlans PKK can wipe out Erdogan and Bazarnis pipeline if they want and they may well do so... Anything that cokes out of Davtogulu mouth or Erdogans, Bazarni is the usual TRIPE.
THe Iraq Government have no worrys abouty the KRG KDP, the next budget will see either PUK and Gorran working with Iraq or nothing at all..They will cut Bazarni off at the knees for his double dealing and failure to stick to the December Agreement, Baghdad need Bazarni like a hole in the head, they have proved time and time again , they do not need a Kurdistan oil, and the IOC's have learnt they produce oil for free to Bazarni...
It would not be unreasonable to expect to see the PYD/PYG and PKK acting with tother kurds, bar Bazarnis KDP , giving Erdogan a bloody nose, The Kurds in Turkey are revolting already against Erdogan...
Sometimes it pays to read what Bazarnis and the KDP history is and still is...
Note how earlier on this article is on Kickbacks paid to ?
The Bush Cheney warlords started this mess, the Current US President made it clear what would happen in 2002 if the US warlords and Texas Mafia had their way invading Iraq, a war that would cause the ME to be the epicenter for Terrorists and so it came to pass....
Turkey is now a target for PYD PYG and others across the ME, and with it is Kurdistan oil ....
THe Kurds need to ditch Bazarni quickly and work with Baghdad, as the pipeline to Turkey is now a legitimate target for the PYD/PYG/PKK .
The oil produced in Iraq gets to market, where is all the KRG/KDP oil revenue from the last 4 years, its not with IOC. and the exports since June 10 the KRG claim they are making, where is that money... Hope its not in Halkbank!!!
Although latest info seems to suggest not so bad in regards to Turkey. Now i am off to the big cheese for a day out in sun Davutoglu: Turkish airstrikes not against people 'north of Iraq' By RUDAW 58 minutes ago 571 Views
Davutoglu: Turkish airstrikes not against people 'north of Iraq' Turkish Prime Minister Ahmed Davutoglu. Photo : AP ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Turkish caretaker Prime Minister, Ahmed Davutoglu, spoke for one hour with the Kurdish President Masoud Barzani about the objectives​ of the recent Turkish airstrikes "north of Iraq" in Kurdistan region.
“I talked with Barzani about the goal of the airstrikes that Turkey carried out in the north of Iraq,” said Davutoglu. “Barzani has reiterated coordination with Turkey.”
“There are still threats in Qandil against Turkey,” said Davutoglu, who also added, “I told Barzani that this operation is not against any ethnicity of northern Iraq.”
Last night on July 25 Turkish warplanes and artillery bombarded bases of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) south of Turkey and in Kurdistan Region.
Turkey also launched a nationwide search operation arresting suspects linked to the PKK, the Islamic State (ISIS), and the Revolutionary People's Liberation Party–Front (DHKP/C) and have arrested 300 individuals so far.
Yep, if this was a story i was reading in a book ( The GKP Fiasco) i would think it was far fetched and unrealistic. i mean Who would believe a small company would would find such a huge amount of oil. be involved in a scandal that lead to a huge court case with Wempens, Then the region of the country they find the oil in wants the region to go independent. More legal action by host country and region. agreements and agreements broken Throw in a terrorist group that becomes richest terrorist group in world. That terrorist group then manages to sell oil, whilst legitimate country fails to. Then some oil gets sold but company not paid. Then country they supply through, begins an attack on some factions of the region going towards independance. This causes further insecurity and anxiety throughout the region.
Now does this story have happy ending or sad tears at the end, nothing to give away the ending on the back cover. Make Coronation street and Harry potter stories sound possible after all.
My advice for what its worth, is , there is nothing that will change today, get out and enjoy the sunshine ( rain tomorrow) and check back tomorrow when raining, as i am not going to let this fiasco run my life and waste a nice day with family
America was informed about the attack on PKK before it happened. Who is at play here?
maybe we are starting to see why silence from Baghdad over independent oil sales, they sit back and watch what happens with out taking part. Who is involved with who, who pulls who's strings, a snake pit of corruption that covers the globe. I suspect the next few weeks will give us an insight to whether we were brave or stupid to hold from those 2012 highs
