Iraq possesses the 5th largest oil reserves of any nation state.

Iraq is an oil rich nation state in the Middle East, formerly ruled by Saddam Hussein. It has been twice attacked by US led coalitions after US public opinion was influenced by deceitful war propaganda (such as, for example, Nurse Nayirah).

Fossil fuel reserves

Iraq has the 5th largest oil reserves and the 7th largest gas reserves of any nation state, about 3% of total global gas reserves.[1]

Iraq was on a list of seven countries which retired 4-star general Wesley Clark (former supreme commander of NATO forces in Europe 1997-2001) stated the US military had plans to invade:

In 2001, in the Pentagon, a general told me : ‘I just received a classified memo from the Secretary of Defense: we will take seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finally, Iran.’[2]

Invasion by USA

Full article: Iraq War

The US invaded Iraq in 2003, amid a cooked up casus belli about Saddam Hussein's effort to acquire "WMD". As of January 2016, even the highly conservative Iraq Body Count website suggested that the war had caused 242,000 deaths.[3] Many estimates put the resulting death toll as much higher.[4]

Continued destruction

A UN report released in January 2016 stated that over 3,000,000 people had been internally displaced in Iraq since January 2014, including over a million school age children.[5]


Nafeez Ahmed headlined an article in March 2017 that "a network tied to Cambridge Analytica, Islamist insurgents, ExxonMobil and Koch convinced Trump to let go of Iraqi unity."[6]

Document:US Planned Syrian Civilian Catastrophe Since 2007“Nasrallah said he believed that President Bush’s goal was “the drawing of a new map for the region. They want the partition of Iraq. Iraq is not on the edge of a civil war — there is a civil war. There is ethnic and sectarian cleansing. The daily killing and displacement which is taking place in Iraq aims at achieving three Iraqi parts, which will be sectarian and ethnically pure as a prelude to the partition of Iraq. Within one or two years at the most, there will be total Sunni areas, total Shiite areas, and total Kurdish areas. Even in Baghdad, there is a fear that it might be divided into two areas, one Sunni and one Shiite...

“I can say that President Bush is lying when he says he does not want Iraq to be partitioned. All the facts occurring now on the ground make you swear he is dragging Iraq to partition. And a day will come when he will say, ‘I cannot do anything, since the Iraqis want the partition of their country and I honor the wishes of the people of Iraq.’"

Nasrallah said he believed that America also wanted to bring about the partition of Lebanon and of Syria. In Syria, he said, the result would be to push the country “into chaos and internal battles like in Iraq.” In Lebanon, “There will be a Sunni state, an Alawi state, a Christian state, and a Druze state.” But, he said, “I do not know if there will be a Shiite state.””
