Is it a coincidence US humanitarian airstrikes are hitting an area where US oil companies have huge investments (picture source)
Last week the rent boy President, Barack Hussein Obama authorized American airstrikes against the ISIS (Islamic State) fighters in Iraq. Obama justified his intervention by describing it as a humanitarian effort.” Taken at face value that seemed true, the air strikes, though probably the wrong approach and one that may reap a terrible harvest for American interests around the world, was intended to save thousands of Yazidi sect members trapped on a mountain by the ISIS forces. The Yazidi are considered heretics by the fanatical Sunni Muslims who form the rebellion.
Obama made one slip, not picked up immediately (mea culpa) by mainstream media or the blogosphere whe he said it was also “an effort to protect our American personnel.
The one word keyword he managed not to mention was oil, but as ever black gold lies near the center of American motives for intervention.
The United States with UK RAF support, is making airdrops of aid to the beleagured Yazidi who have fled before the advance of Islamic State militants, but is also conducting airstrikes around Erbil, which is to the east of the Yazidi area but is the centre of the Kurdistan oilfield.
There are American consular personnel in Erbil, but they could be evacuated if necessary. What Obama left unsaid was that Erbil, a city of 1.5 million, is the capital of the Kurdish oil industry, which accounts for about a quarter of Iraqs oil. The Kurds claim that if they were to become an independent state, they would have the ninth-largest oil reserves in the world. And oil wells are near Erbil.
If the Islamic State were to take over Erbil, they would endanger Iraqs oil production and, by extension, global access to oil. Prices would surge at a time when Europe, which buys oil from Iraq, has still not escaped the global recession. On Thursday, American oil companies Chevron and Exxon Mobile began evacuating their personnel from Kurdistan.
In portraying American intervention in Iraq as a purely humanitarian effort, Obama is following the script he read from in Libya, when he justified American intervention as an effort to prevent a massacre in Benghazi. Need I say anything more?
