[A HISTORY OF THE OIL INDUSTRY IN IRAQ / IRAN AND ITS BRUTAL CONSEQUENCES FOR ITS PEOPLES.]

 

America only entered World War I (on the side of Britain and France) after both its new allies and new enemies were pretty much exhausted by the fighting.  Once it agreed to join in the war America imposed conditions which included the demand that America's economic and political objectives be taken into account when the war was over.  One of the objectives was access to new sources of raw material, particularly oil.   In February 1919, Sir Arthur Hirtzel, a leading British official warned:

 'It should be borne in mind that the Standard Oil Company is very anxious to take over IRAQ.'

 America demanded that it's oil companies be allowed to negotiate freely with the new puppet monarchy of King Faisal (the monarch whom the British had put on the throne in IRAQ).  And so  Iraq's oil was divided up between the allies.  Five per cent of the oil went to an oil magnet called Gulbebenkian ( later known as Mr Five Per Cent' who had helped negotiate the agreement).  The other 95per cent was split four ways between

BRITAIN, FRANCE, HOLLAND and the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Companies now known as British Petroleum, SHELL, MOBIL and EXXON pretty much had a MONOPOLY of the oil available.  (Iraqi oil was split this way until 1958 when there was a REVOLUTION in IRAQ)

American influence in the region was sealed when the al-Saud family and the United Stats of America created Saudi Arabia in the 1930's pretty much as an American colony. It was no coincidence that the American Embassy in Riyadh, the capital city, was situated in the local oil company building.

The Americans were not , however, satisfied with their share of Middle East oil.  The wanted CONTROL. They had to get rid of the British. And their chance came with the Second World War.

The Americans unceasingly portray themselves as Britain's saviour. This is a wicked misrepresentation. As it had been in the great War.  America was ruthlessly opportunistic.

Britain was greatly weakened by the Second World War but America grew tremendously in power as a result of what happened in the early 1940's.  The Roosevelt and Truman administrations (which were dominated by the banking and oil interests [As is the situation in JUNE 2010] decided to restructure the world to ensure that the USA would  be on top. 

THEY WANTED  CONTROL OF THE WORLD'S OIL.

They wanted USA dominated

GLOBALISATION

( to which end they created the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in 1944)

They wanted the dollar to be the ONLY significant world currency.  And they wanted the USA to have military superiority in all types of weapons.

Winston Churchill was so worried by what he could see happening that on March 4th 1944 (three months before D DAY invasion of Normandy) he sought assurance from the USA that she would not take over BRITISH OIL INTERESTS.

He wrote to the USA President Roosevelt saying:

' Thank you very much for your assurances about no sheep's eyes on our oilfields in Iran and Iraq.  Let me reciprocate by giving you the fullest assurance that we have no thought of trying to horn in upon your interests or property in Saudi Arabia. My position in this, as in all matters, is that Great Britain seeks no advantage, territorial or otherwise, as a result of this war. On the other hand, she will not be deprived of anything which rightly belongs to her after haviong given her best services to the good cause, at least not so long as your humble servant is entrusted with the conduct of affairs.'

Sadly, there was nothing that even Churchill could do to save Britain from its new 'enemy'.  In 1953, a CIA coup which put the Shah in power gave Iran to the United States of America. ( The Americans also helped the Shah form his much hated secret police.)

And within a couple of years after that Iraq was jointly controlled by America and Britain.

In 1955 America set up the Baghdad Pact, which was designed, at least in part, to oppose the rise of Arab liberation movements in the Middle East.  Britain and Iraq were signatories, although Iraq was independent only in name.  The British still had military airfields in Iraq which was ruled by a corrupt monarchy.  The people of Iraq, despite having a huge quantity of the world's oil under their feet, were staving and living in abject poverty.

Things changed in Iraq in 1958, A military rebellion launched a REVOLUTION

which was to have dramatic consequences on the world.  The day after the revolution started the Americans put 20,000 marines into Lebanon and over 6000 paratroopers dropped into Jordan.  Under Eisenhower's leadership the USA and the UK had made it clear that they would go to war to protect their interests in Lebanon and Jordan.

The British, rather naively, thought that they were simply protecting their interests outside Iraq.  the Americans had bigger thoughts. they wanted to go into Iraq, overturn the revolution and put a new puppet government (friendly to the USA, of course) in charge in Baghdad.

BUT THE AMERICANS WERE STOPPED.

The Iraq revolution was too big. And it had much support from other Arab countries, from the people's republic of China and from the USSR. the Americans glumly gave up their imperialist plans.

But they didn't give up completely.

The thwarted Americans added Iraq to their growing list of terrorist nations and gave great support to right wing Kurdish elements who were fighting the Iraq government.  then, in the late 1970's the Americans suported the government of Saddam Hussein in its fight against communism.   In the 1980's the Americans supported (with money and arms) Saddam Hussein's Iraq in its eight years war with Iran , a country over which America had lost control during Iran's islamic Revolution of 1970.  The Americans openly admitted that they were intervening in order to safeguard their access to the region's oil and they slightly less openly hoped that Iraq and Iran would weaken each other and enable the USA to take over. 

'I hope they kill each other,'

former secretary of state Henry Kissinger [ a Bilderberger and a member of the ruling elite of the USA the Council on Foreign Relations who decide the Foreign Policy of the country] is said to have remarked.

The Americans provided Iraq's air force with satellite photographs of Iranian targets and sent anti-aircraft missiles to Iran so that the Iranians could shoot down the aircraft which the Iraqis sent over.  America fought on both sides of the war and was well aware that Saddam Hussein was using chemical weapons.

Over a million people died and both countries were left weaker. ( Bizarrely, and hypocritically, in 2003 George W Bush was claiming that Saddam Hussein's use of chemical weapons in this war was one of the main reasons for attacking Iraq.)  The money America made from selling missiles to Iran was used to finance the CONTRAS who were fighting the Socialist government in Nicaragua.  Reagan, USA President at the time, disapproved of socialist regimes and wanted to get rid of this one in particular. (It is perhaps unfair to ascribe such depth of feeling to Reagan himself, rather than to his advisors.)

The war between Iraq and Iran didn't finish until 1988, by which time Iraq had become friendly with the USSR.

But then the USSR was taken over by Gorbachev, who wanted to end the COLD WAR and a permanent detente with America. Gorbachev withdrew Soviet support from Iraq (as he had withdrawn it from countries in eastern Europe) and the world suddenly changed yet again.

After the war with Iran Saddam Hussein had accumulated massive debts.  The low price of oil meant that his income didn't match his national outgoings.  the Iraqi president accused Kuwait of drilling for oil in Iraqi territory and then announced that Kuwait wasn't a separate nation at all but a province of Iraq.  Iraqi troops invaded Kuwait in 1990.  America (with an INTERNATIONAL FORCE) attacked, the resultant war was over in weeks and in 1991 the Americans got back into Iraq.  In the decade that followed they have used sanctions, bombings and blockades to weaken the Iraqi people and destroy their spirit.  American sanctions against Iraq do not target Saddam Hussein,

THEY TARGET THE IRAQI PEOPLE.

Now the Americans, led by oil man George W Bush are going back to Iraq [2003]. Americans do not give a fig for HUMAN RIGHTS and they know that Saddam Hussein is NO THREAT TO AMERICA.   They know well that he has NO WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION.  (And even if he did have them the Americans have the military capability to DESTROY IRAQ IN SECONDS)  They surely also know that Saddam Hussein has NOTHING in COMMON with OSAMA bin LADEN.

 

AMERICA IS GOING BACK INTO IRAQ FOR THE SAME ,GOOD OLD REASON

MORE FROM VERNON COLEMAN

 

NO371

Find a war and you'll find that both sides are fighting with weapons supplied (at a price to anyone) by the Americans and British arms industries .  When Americans or British troops are killed they are usually killed with British or American bullets fired from British and American guns.

Is more violence really the only answer? Where will all the violence end?  What does state approved revenge become state sponsored terrorism?  Is America justified in killing innocent people.

Instead of seeking revenge America should lead by example. Instead of retaliating in hatred they should ask for peace. Why does that thought seem so naive?

 

NO 373

American activities in Iraq and elsewhere have reinforced the conflict between Europe and the Muslim world and have helped establish strong fundamentalist Islamic politicians in power.

The American activities in the Middle East are invariably self-serving: the aim is to satisfy the arms industry, the oil industry and Zionists.  the cost is stability and peace.  Americans don't worry about the cost of war because war is usually profitable for the massive arms industry,

NO322

 In 2003 the Americans claimed that by opposing their enthusiasm for dropping bombs on Iraq the French and Germans were endangering NATO.

Once again the Americans needed to study their history books (though preferably not ones written or published in America). NATO was created to deal with the alleged threat posed by the Soviet Union (a threat which existed largely in the minds of the Americans.

By 2003 there was clearly no longer a threat from the Soviet Union and so there was no need for NATO to continue to exist.

The truth is that NATO only existed in 2003 because the well-paid officials who worked for it were determined to keep it alive.

 

[A REMINDER TO DAVID CAMERON in 2011]

 

Bush and Blair claim that replacing Saddam Hussein is a moral act-designed solely to help the people of Iraq. (Although curiously, Tony Blair, who likes to describe himself as a religious man, and who is allegedly planning to become a Catholic, publicly ignored the Pope's plea for mo war against Iraq.)

If these two are now concerned with replacing 'undemocratic' leaders when will wars ever end?

And why aren't the USA and the UK declaring war on themselves? both have leaders who represent minorities.

Blair repeatedly ignored the large majority of the British electorate who were opposed to the war against Iraq. Can a leader who takes no notice of the people be described as democratic?
