US Court Orders Kurdish Oil Seized

While the world is distracted with Israeli atrocities in Gaza, the US and Israel are quietly breaking up Iraq. According to Reuters UK, a federal court in Texas has ordered US Marshals to seize a $100 million cargo of Kurdish oil on a tanker off the coast of Galveston, Texas – but only if the tanker enters US territorial waters.

Attorneys for the government of Iraq laid claim to the oil in a lawsuit they filed on July 28. Since May, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has shipped five million-barrel tankers of oil from the Turkish port of Ceyhan in defiance of Iraqi law, which mandates that Baghdad has sole authority over Iraq’s natural resources. One cargo of Kurdish crude was delivered to the United States in May to an unidentified buyer.

Four other tanker loads of Kurdish oil have been delivered to Israel.

The recent inability of the Iraqi government to defend its northern territories from the Islamic State (aka ISIS aka ISIL) has emboldened the KRG to assert control over the oil-rich city of Kirkuk. With the complicity of the Turkish government, they have been marketing the oil on their own behalf. Because Kurdistan is land-locked the oil must be shipped via pipeline to Turkey.

Obama’s Contradictory Position on Kurdish Autonomy

This is one rare instance in which the US and Israel appear to be on opposite sides (or do they?). According to the Wall Street Journal, the Obama administration publicly opposes direct oil sales by Kurdistan, fearing this could contribute to the break-up of Iraq.

Yet, repeating a common pattern, the official position contradicts growing evidence that the CIA is training and arming ISIS militants.

Israel, meanwhile, is eager to expand trade with Kurdistan. According to unnamed Israeli officials, they see it as an opportunity to expand Israel’s limited diplomatic network in the Middle East, while simultaneously shoring up the country’s energy security.

  1. Hi Doc – I would imagine Israel doesn’t give a rat’s ass if Iraq breaks up while we have to continue the facade that the Iraq war meant something and wasn’t just a big lie and waste of lives and treasure. Regards

  2. I think you’re both right. The ruling elite is covering their embarrassment over the disastrous (and illegal) war of aggression against Iraq. And Gerry’s right – the ultimate goal is to turn Iran into a US puppet state.

  3. Thank you — this makes sense of several things that are in the news lately and were confusing. Seems like “we’ve been here before” though. One thing about Cabal tactics — they’re predictable.

      • Like a “pet” owner and trainer the repetition is necessary and effective.
        Dog training is so “in the face” obvious that hidden in plain sight rings true because the People mentally run from it and are appalled that such a thing is possible.
        The biggest buildings and most influential people are where?
        Answer:
        in the tallest financial skyscrapers and most ornate stone government temples.

        Funding and mandating the obedience training comes from them.
        Wars require massive funding, planning and obediently trained [you insert the proper noun].
        They even issue “dog tags” to the “trained” Obedient and Loyal military personnel…
        Yes, this is disturbing and ghastly information, yet it is true.
        Below are some examples (and you can think of more in your nearby metro-city):

        To Cut the Chains of obedience, You Must First See Them…

        The aware people, such as you here, sharing the truth are the resistance to the escalation of World War 3 slowly unfolding now.
        Some people will need to face the decision to disobey orders.
        See PhD.,Rev. M.L.K. Jr’s agonizing speech of disobedience: Oops the video was removed from youtube! I have it, but I no longer have a youtube account, never the less here is his agonizing words and courage to face the choice of disobedience:

        “A time comes when silence is betrayal.” And that time has come for us in relation to Vietnam.

        The truth of these words is beyond doubt, but the mission to which they call us is a most difficult one. Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government’s policy, especially in time of war. Nor does the human spirit move without great difficulty against all the apathy of conformist thought within one’s own bosom and in the surrounding world. Moreover, when the issues at hand seem as perplexing as they often do in the case of this dreadful conflict, we are always on the verge of being mesmerized by uncertainty; but we must move on.

        And some of us who have already begun to break the silence of the night have found that the calling to speak is often a vocation of agony, but we must speak. We must speak with all the humility that is appropriate to our limited vision, but we must speak. …” ~ KING
        April 4, 1967 at Riverside Church in New York City, exactly one year before he was murdered.

        Keep sharing the truth and thank you for being here!
        Hugs for you all ((()))

  4. Wow, we seem to be thinking along the same lines here. I just posted a video about Project Censored’s study about the 13 banks that run the world. They’re the ones marching us towards World War III in Ukraine and committing genocide in Gaza. It’s becoming increasingly obvious that our elected representatives have no say in any of this. It’s not that they’re incompetent: they’re slaves just as much as we are.

    It’s no longer a simple matter of corporate lobbying or bribery. These are obviously very frightened people – they know that the national security state (which is controlled by these banks) can utterly destroy them. It’s not just their reputations and families they’re worried about. They can always arrange a nice plane accident like they did for Paul Wellstone.

    • Yes, fear is a major element, and this is why my imagination considers the global grassroots movement with massive boycotts and workers’ general strikes may be the spontaneous “leaderless” action that ultimately stops the globalists from achieving their diabolical plans.

      Reaching the men and women in uniform is as difficult as reaching the political and financial officials & executives who are coerced or threatened to follow the program.
      The mass of people in our local neighborhoods and collectively in all regions on Earth may be the only true resistance that can stop this destruction.
