    838. Iraq crisis (6/14/2014)

    All of a sudden,Iraq is in crisis. The second biggest city is fallen. Baghdad isthreatened.

    Iraqisoldiers, police drop weapons, flee posts in portions of Mosul


    CNN, Fri June 13,2014

    "I only ...saw armed people, but not Iraqi military," said resident Firas al-Maslawiof his drive through Mosul on Tuesday. "There was no presence of anygovernment forces on the streets, the majority of their posts destroyed andmanned by (Islamist militants)."

    The numerousreports of police and soldiers running from their posts in Mosul raised theprospect that the Iraqi government did not either have the will or resources towin this and other fights.

    Iraqi securityforces, trained by Pentagon for years and well equipped with helicopters, tanksand armoured cars, vastly outnumber the jihadists, suddenly melted down in theface of ISIL rebels.

    Consider Al Qaedajihadists are created and supported by the US to deal with its dislikes (suchlike Libya’s Gaddafi and Syria’s Assad) and the current Iraq government is apuppet set up by US in Iraq war, both sides are US’ assets. I think it’s adrama conducted by the US. You can see the leadership of Iraqi troops gave upthe city without any fight.

    ISISbutchers leave 'roads lined with decapitated police and soldiers'

    BySamGreenhilland Jill Reillyand Kieran Corcoran 12 June 2014


    According tobitter Iraqi foot soldiers, their commanders slipped away in the night ratherthan mount a defence of the city.

    One said: ‘Ourleaders betrayed us. The commanders left the military behind. When we woke up,all the leaders had left.’

    US inside groupused to create a case, with which to ask for more power and money. E.g. the 911attack has been created to get Patriot Act and two wars in Mid-East. What is itnow for this Iraq crisis?

    As you can see kat, the 'rah rah America never does anything wrong' crowd, isn't going to comment on this. 47 people opened the thread and said, oh ****, this doesn't fit the meme, and slunked away, shamed and without comment!

    839. Iraqi crisis created to save dollar (6/18/2014)
    In early June, Russia switches the oil payment from dollars to Euros.

    Gazprom Signs Agreements to Switch from Dollars to Euros

    Global Research, June 07, 2014

    Gazprom Neft had signed additional agreements with consumers on a possible switch from dollars to euros for payments under contracts, the oil company’s head Alexander Dyukov told a press conference.

    “Additional agreements of Gazprom Neft on the possibility to switch contracts from dollars to euros are signed. With Belarus, payments in rubles are agreed on,” he said.

    Dyukov said nine of ten consumers had agreed to switch to euros.

    This is very important news. If people starting to abandon the dollar, US will be hurt seriously in economy. Yet the news was little reported by the mainstream media. Several days later, the ISIL rebel in Iraq activates an offensive. The puppet Iraqi government retreats without any resistance. As a result, the oil price goes up.


    Oil prices spike as Iraq violence flares
    By Mark Thompson @MarkThompsonCNN June 12, 2014

    Oil prices spiked Thursday to levels not seen in nine months as escalating violence in Iraq sparked worries about crude exports.

    Light crude oil futures touched $106 a barrel, up nearly 2% and the highest price since September 2013.

    Since the money used in most oil trading is dollar, the higher oil price will force the buyer to keep more dollar in bank as purchasing power. It’s a big amount if future option is included. Manipulating oil price becomes a strategy to save the dollar. Iraq is a big country of oil production and exportation. Its political stability has huge influence to oil price. US has turned it into a switch to adjust the oil price.

    840. US keeps Iraq a battle field to adjust oil price (6/25/2014)

    Since the recent Iraq crisis created by the US is to save dollar, US will maintain the current situation unchanged. A US craft carrier has been deployed in Mid-East, no air attack has done so far.


    Analysis: Obama plan leaves Iraq mostly on its own

    Analysis: Obama plan leaves Iraq mostly on its own
    Three hundred US military advisors were sent to Iraq. Their role likely is to instruct Iraqi troops to retreat from cities or oil fields when they want the oil price to go up. Or vice versa.

    The US will turn Iraq into another battle field. Let Arabs fight Arabs. Decades ago, it was Saddam's Iraq vs. Iran. Now it will be Sunni's Iraq, Saudi, Qarda vs. Shiiti Iraq, Iran.

    That's a strategy it used to play, just like it manipulates Democrats and Republicans in domestic politics.
