Actually mate, if you knew anything about Kurdistan, which obviously you don't, you would know that their oil fields, for the most part, where taken
So please, don't try and preach to me that you actually know jack about Kurdistan, or quite frankly Iraq for that matter.
Because if you knew the geopolitical make up of Iraq, which you don't, you would know that most of Iraqi oil resides in the South, and in the East.
There are two major fields in the North West and the North. Neither are controlled by Kurds. The largest of these fields reside out side of Kirkuk
and Mosul, which is controlled by the Central Iraqi Government. The other is between Mosul and Tall Afar, controlled by the Central Iraqi
The Iraqi government must by mandate however appropriate a certain percentage of the oil revenue to specific regional sectors of Iraq, one including
of course Kurdistan. Seeing Kurdistan separated it's self from the violence, the money is used to build schools and infrastructure.
If you studied Iraq and knew what you where talking about, which you don't, and didn't just post flaming garbage with over exploited pictures seen
time and again, you would know that one city specifically is not exempt from violence, and that is Kirkuk.. mostly Kurdish, yes, but also prominent
Sunni .. the result is of course violence. But where Kurdistan begins and Iraq ends, concrete walls, armed troops and heavily fortified gates ensure
that the only way into Kurdistan is a thorough search of all your belongings. If you blow your self up, it's between concrete barriers, and no harm
You would also know, if you studied the country's violence record, that there have been countless attempts to cause violence in Kurdistan, however no
attempt has been successful.
You would also know that much of the success of Kurdistan is actually Capitalist in nature.. from arms trading and oil, to profiteering on the War.
Yes, Kurdish firms sprout like plants to offer services to the troubled Iraq. Ever seen a picture of Iraq with concrete barriers on the side of the
road? Kurdish made. They supply the Iraqi army with arms, uniforms, food, aid packages.. a capitalist dream.
But you would have known that, if instead of shouting hatred and bigotry, you studied that which you preach.
And maybe, just maybe, once you get over your self, you will realize that in life sometimes that sacrifice of the undeserving is a good thing, if it
means freedom and prosperity to the people once oppressed. The underdogs freed themselves, and you cry for their past masters..
So my advice to you, mate, pick up a book.
Educate your self.
