When we read articles like the one that informs us that the IRAQI OIL WORKERS have a union with 26,000 members you have to wonder what the reality of the situation was in Iraq during the time when Saddam Hussein was its President. Iraq’s current quisling government is about to give away the store to the United States based international corporate oil and finance conglomerates. The oil union, that evidently became organized during Hussein’s reign, is opposing the deal largely because of the secrecy surrounding it and the available information about the unfavorable returns proposed in the deal for the Iraqi people. Like the man says, “the devil is in the details”.
In the meantime, the United States killing machine is continuing its slaughter of innocents by means of its “Operation Arrowhead” in Baquba, the capital city of Diyala province in southern Iraq. The slaughter is proceeding at such a pace that the city’s morgue refrigerators are unable to handle the flow of corpses. The lack of electricity to operate the refrigerators has resulted in the stench of the rotting dead to be discernable for as far as fifty yards away. The result is that it has become necessary to create mass graves to dispose of the dead. The flow of corpses was compounded by the fact that United States killing machine ordered the restricted movement of ambulances during “Arrowhead” slaughter operations then lifted the restrictions.
