Oil Dissapearing in Iraq

Paper: Report Finds Iraqi Oil Disappearing–  They really must think we are stupid.  After I read the first paragraph, I knew that our Government thinks we are really dumb:

“A draft of a new American government report says that between 100,000 and 300,000 barrels a day of Iraq’s declared oil production over the past four years is unaccounted for and could have been siphoned off through corruption or smuggling, the New York Times reported Saturday.”

The Government wants us to believe that between 100,000 and 300,000 barrels of oil is being smuggled.  Smuggled where?  How do you steal up to 300,000 barrels of crude oil without anyone noticing? 

Gas prices have exploded and economist have the nerve to say that if Americans would stop consuming in excess, that gas prices would stop going up.  they are blaming the people for the increase in gas prices.  When you have Exxon Mobile breaking revenue and profits every other quarter, corporate greed has run amuck.  And now  hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil have disappeared and no one can account for it?

  1. 300,000 barrells just HAPPENS to be missing…sad.

  2. All that oil missin something smells haliburtony ( oh Im sorry I meant to say something smells fishy).

  3. I’ve posted this comment with Kizzie and Asabagna on Afro-Spear because I believe it’s important and worthy of discussion.

    I am wondering if we can determine what the “real” situation is in Sudan.

    I’ve become very suspicious of all the “Sudan Genocide” media hype from Western officials who didn’t give a damn about Rwanda, the Congo or Uganda. I’m quite sure they are after the oil, and gold and it would appear that they are trying to also deceive the African Diaspora into helping to promote their insidious agenda.

    This should be discussed on Afrospear and within the blog ring to determine if this is true. If you reach this conclusion, then there should be an effort made to remove these “Save Darfur” ads from Afrospear and other African blogs. The next discussion probably should be: How to mobilise the pan-african organizations in North America (probably internationally) to pressure the UN to remove UN troops from Sudan immediately and to give further aid to the African Union troops. Perhaps even pressure the Sudan government, if they are seen as abusing human rights.

    It would also appear that some rebel groups have close ties with Washington. A similar situation appears to exist in Zimbabwe, where the wrongdoings of the opposition party, (also a benefactory of Western support) scarcely go reported. This is another Western scramble to wrest Africa’s hands from the rising Asian powers and to suppress the Africans from ever truly developing self-rule.

    Please note, that I am not saying that Al Bashir or Mugabe are saints, but it would appear that their governments are being sabotaged by Western powers. It is known that the West does not like the growing African trend of increased trade with Asian countries like China and India. Believe me, if the UN and US troops start a war in Sudan, they’ll probably start the real genocide.

    That being said, it is important that we determine the fact from the fiction and get involved in lobbying for Africa so that we dont’sit around and watch our own holocaust.

    Please note that I bet most of you haven’t seen a picture of Omar Al Bashir on television. Kinda reminiscent of North American media coverage of Africa that never shows the city, only the rural villages and abject poverty. In my eyes, it’s all smoke and mirrors. However, it’s up to the Afro-spear community to determine where the real truth lies.

    These are just a couple of the websites that I’ve come across that have had articles/webcasts on this topic:


  4. Pianki:

    I have heard many people talk about the validity of the Genocide in Darfur. It is correct to assume that the reason why the U.S. is not aggressively pursuing this issue is because of natural resources; and yes China has its hands all in it as well.

    I can understand with the history of western nations exploiting Africa how some may be suspicious, but I know many black activist, Joe Madison among others, who have been to Sudan and seen what is going on first hand. It is correct to assume that the reason why the U.S. is not aggressively pursuing this issue is because of natural resources; and yes China has its hands all in it as well. I do think that we need futher investigate what’s going on over there, but I don’t think that the people involved in the safe darfur movement, which include people all over the world, not just the United States, have anything to do with the destruction of Africa. I think these movements are a good thing

  5. i read the same article and wrote a similar blog entry about this missing oil “mystery”! like you, i feel that the government is peeing on my leg and telling me that it’s raining!

    everything this Administration does is rife with corruption and graft. what does George Bush have to do to get impeached?!? i guess the only thing the Congress will care about is if he gets his “willy” sucked in the Oval Office by a White House intern!
