    Anyone familiar with Iraq’s historical defiance of the
    Rockefeller/Rothschild Oil Cartel would not have been surprised at the
    ferocity of Iraqi insurgents battling US occupation forces.


    Their frequent offensives were just the latest in a
    century-long history of attempts by Iraqis to free their country from
    the talons of the international bankers.


    (What follows is excerpted from my book [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]…: Chapter 12: The Gulf Oil War)

    In 1776 the British East India Company set up headquarters at what is
    now Kuwait. When Kuwaiti members of the al-Sabah clan helped Ottoman
    Turks quell uprisings in southern Iraq, the Shiek of the Muntafiq tribe
    gave the al-Sabahs date groves near Fao and Sufiyeh in southern Iraq.

    Kuwait was seen as highly strategic by the British in protecting
    their Indian Ocean sea lanes. By 1900 the British had cut a deal with
    Mubarek al-Sabah, carving Kuwait out of Iraq and making it a British
    protectorate. The vast majority of people who lived there opposed the
    British plan. They wanted to remain part of Iraq and have always
    considered Kuwait to be part of Iraq’s Basra Province.

    For decades Iraqi leaders challenged the legitimacy of the 1920’s
    Sykes-Picot Agreement through which the British and French created
    Kuwait as a British Protectorate. Iraqis were never consulted when this
    “gentleman’s agreement” was signed. Kuwait became an important
    provider of oil to the West, then became petrodollar banker for the
    world economy.

    Former British Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd once stated that
    Kuwaiti oil money was propping up the British pound. A running joke on
    Wall Street asks, “Why do the US and Kuwait need each other?” The
    answer, “Kuwait is a banking system without a country. The US is a
    country without a banking system.”

    In 1937 and again in 1946, the Iraqi Communist Party called strikes
    at Iraq Petroleum Company (IPC) headquarters in Kirkuk. Since BP was
    IPC’s major owner, the British sent troops to put down the strikes.
    Half a million acres of land in Kut province was taken over by the
    British lackey al-Yasin brothers and by 1958 1% of the landowners in
    Iraq controlled 55% of the land.

    In the 1950’s IPC was at the center of an oil boom in Iraq. Its many
    tentacles included Basra Petroleum and Mosul Petroleum. Chevron,
    Texaco, Exxon, Mobil, Gulf and RD/Shell were cut into IPC after the Four
    Horsemen signed the Red Line Agreement.

    The 1952 revolution in Egypt that deposed the Farouk monarchy and
    brought nationalist leader Gamel Abdel Nasser to power inspired a series
    of uprisings in Iraq aimed at IPC and the Iraqi monarchy. In 1958 King
    Faisal was assassinated along with numerous members of the royal
    family. The Iraqi monarchy, long a puppet of the British Empire, was
    deposed.

    The US and the British acted quickly to ensure installation of
    another puppet in the form of General Nuri es-Said. The US and Britain
    convinced es-Said to sign the Baghdad Pact, part of which called for
    official recognition of Kuwait. Another part of the deal authorized
    Iraqi forces to be sent to Lebanon to prop up the unpopular pro-Western
    government of Camille Chamoun.

    In 1958 es-Said was deposed in a coup led by nationalist Army
    officers loyal to Abdul Karim Qassim. The Paris weekly L’Express
    reported, “The Iraqi coup was inspired by the CIA in a move to appease
    the nationalists. The CIA saw Qassim as ‘containable’ and preferable to
    more radical elements who were fast gaining support among the Iraqi
    people”. Initially members of the Communist Party were banned from
    Qassim’s Cabinet.

    But under pressure from the burgeoning left, Qassim dissolved the
    Iraqi monarchy and cultivated ties with the Soviet Union and China. He
    withdrew from the Baghdad Pact and called for incorporation of Kuwait
    into Basra Province. He lifted a ban on the Iraqi Communist Party and
    they became a major force in his government. He formed the state-run
    Iraqi National Oil Company (INOC), making Iraq the first country
    to nationalize Four Horsemen assets. In 1961 Qassim passed Law 80,
    which repossessed 99.5% of IPC’s unexplored lands and called for the
    annexation of Kuwait.

    Big Oil had seen quite enough. By 1960 Sydney Gottlieb of CIA’s
    Technical Services Division hatched a plan to assassinate President
    Qassim. A low-intensity terror campaign was organized by CIA using
    Nationalist and Ba’ath Parties to attack the Iraqi Communist Party, the
    most formidable leftist party in the entire Middle East. The CIA gave
    its stooges lists of leftist leaders to be targeted. In 1961 Kuwait
    declared independence, taking Iraq’s only upriver port at Basra. US
    troops were rushed to Lebanon and UK forces to Jordan.

    In 1963 CIA agent Bruce Odell arranged an airlift of arms to a
    right-of-center Ba’ath Party cell in Baghdad. The Ba’ath operatives
    unleashed a wave of terror which featured countless massacres of
    civilians. The CIA’s point man, whose right-wing Ba’ath faction emerged
    victorious after assassinating Qassim in 1963, was Saddam Hussein.

    According to an April 17, 2003 wire story from Indo-Asian News
    Service the CIA spirited Saddam out of Iraq after the assassination and
    put him up in a Cairo hotel for a few nights. Adb al-Salam Arif was
    installed as President. His first decree repealed Law 80. The Four
    Horsemen were back in the IPC saddle.

    In 1967 IPC drilled several wells with 50,000 barrel/day potential,
    hiding these findings from the Iraqi government. When the news leaked
    to the Iraqi people they were outraged and Arif followed their lead. He
    nationalized Iraq’s banks and insurance companies, along with 32 other
    large firms. Iraq passed Laws 97 and 123 which gave the state-run INOC a
    bigger role in Iraq’s oil industry, including an exclusive right to
    develop the North Rumaila oilfield next to Kuwait.

    Halliburton subsidiary Brown & Root had built the IPC oil
    terminal at Fao which serves North Rumaila. The German company
    Mannesman built IPC’s Kirkuk-Dortyol pipeline. Now these multinationals
    were running for cover as an angry Iraq broke off relations with the
    US.

    A year later leftist President al-Bakr was fighting off the
    CIA-backed Patriotic Union of Kurdistan faction led by Jalal Talibani,
    while Mustafa Barzani’s loyalist Kurd troops attacked IPC facilities
    near Kirkuk. A March 11, 1970 Iraqi government decree rewarded
    Barzani’s Kurds with autonomy over the northern provinces of Kirkuk and
    Dohuk.

    In 1971 Iraq broke ties with Iran after the Shah was found to be
    aiding Talibani’s faction on behalf of the CIA. In 1972 al-Bakr
    nationalized IPC. In 1973 Basra Petroleum was nationalized. By
    December 1975 all foreign holdings in Iraq were nationalized. Talibani is the current President of US-occupied Iraq.

    Syria led other countries in the region in following the Iraqi
    example. The IPC nationalization was wildly popular in Iraq and
    bolstered the al-Bakr government, which now formed the Iraqi Company for
    Oil Operations (ICOO) to market INOC petroleum overseas. ICOO signed
    supply agreements with Japan, India, Brazil, Greece and many Warsaw Pact
    nations. From 1973-78 Iraqi oil revenues went from $1.8 billion/year
    to $23.6 billion/year.

    Iraq implemented strict currency controls to prevent the international bankers from trashing their dinar.
    They introduced import restrictions so that foreign currency wasn’t
    wasted on frivolous luxury items. Iraq became a respected leader of the
    price hawk faction of OPEC. It was setting an example globally in its
    successful bid to free itself from dependency on the international
    banker mafia who now wanted al-Bakr’s head. After a failed 1975 coup
    attempt against al-Bakr, Iraqi police found US dollars in the possession
    of the plotters.

    Over four decades the Four Horsemen and their CIA henchman had tried
    to quell the nationalist urge of the Iraqi people. Success was minimal
    and their puppet regimes short-lived. Saddam Hussein’s regime looked
    promising to the international bankers.He clamped down on nationalist
    parties, killing and deporting the most radical elements. He invaded
    revolutionary Iran on orders from Carter National Security Advisor and
    Trilateral Commission co-founder Zbigniew Brzezinski. He privatized
    cooperative farms, opened the Iraqi economy to Western multinationals
    and founded the US/Iraqi Business Forum.

    But when the Saudis and Kuwaitis began pressing Saddam for repayment
    of $120 billion in Iranian war loans, which were originally called
    “grants”, Saddam bristled. The US told the Kuwaiti al-Sabah monarchs to
    hold the line, pushing Saddam onto the well-worn socialist path of the
    Iraqi people.

In such little but to the point facts it shows how we are where we are today with Iraq and why and the reasons of the Jykells, the US, the Brits, and so on. For those that follw this investment but never have read up on the history, here is a good start. Hard to believe Dean Henderson was allowed to publish these books... ;)
