Iraq warns of collapse if Trump blocks oil cash
AFP is reporting that "Iraqi officials fear economic "collapse" if Washington imposes threatened sanctions, including blocking access to a US-based account where Baghdad keeps oil revenues that feed 90 percent of the national budget. US President Donald Trump was outraged by the Iraqi parliament voting on January 5 to oust foreign forces, including some 5,200 American troops, who have helped local soldiers beat back jihadists since 2014. If troops were asked to leave, he threatened, "we will charge them sanctions like they've never seen before."
Why would the Americans block Iraq's oil cash? That is extortion. Donald Trump is not the Messiah. He is the devil. The invasion of Iraq and the hostilities with Iran are solely about oil. When it comes to social justice here, we are on the wrong side.
Executing political prisoners in China to make money from organ harvesting doesn't seem to bother anyone but when a Chinese cell phone competitor competes with an American firm to sell cell phones to Iran, then all hell breaks loose.
It's like the Americans threatening sanctions against Germany and Russia for reducing coal pollution by twinning a natural gas pipeline. Wars and sanctions are supposed to be based on moral principles not corporate greed. It's the same thing in Syria.
The Americans created and funded ISIS to justify military intervention in Syria so they could block the pipeline from Iran to Syria over their pipeline from Quatar who were also arming ISIS. That is why Turkey invaded Syria - to block the competing pipeline.
The Americans created the tensions with Iran by intentionally executing their general responsible for defeating ISIS. The accidental downing of the Iranian airliner full of Iranians was the result of Donald Trumps satanic threat to respond with a disproportionate terrorist strike against holy sites in Iran. Donald Trump is the root cause and shares legal liability for the airliner disaster. Justin Trudeau said Iran plane victims would be alive had there been no regional tensions and that is absolutely true. Sue Trump. Money is the only thing he understands.
Donald Trump's threat to block Iraq's access to its own oil revenues shows us why our banks need to be separate from the American banks. Corporate monopolies are bad and this is the perfect example. Perhaps Iraq will have to use Iran's banking system now.
