Repartee to Sam Daugher-WSJ

Browsing through the ekurd.net website; looking for
daily news, somehow my eye hit the story which was
written by Sam Daugher-WSJ.
February 2, 2012: “Kurds Seize on Iraqi Crisis to
Advance Bid for Oil, Land.” This is not a paragon
writing, it is grim at its best, and it is
regrettable at its worst with such myopic views.
Albeit the Kurdish leadership from 2003 have
initiated an affirmative role and has played as a
kingmaker betwixt the Shia sect of Islam and Sunni
sect of Islam, to prevent Iraq from exacerbating
further into deepening eclipsing crisis or worse
into open end conflict, which would be a civil war.
However, this schism between both sects of Islam
goes back over many, many generations ago; for
example each side claims that their own doctrines
would be better served before God after a person
dies for their causes so that he or she goes to
Baghdad’s leaders out to be cognizant, must not
follow particularistic fallacy policy, and should
not mistreat the Kurdish people as less than equal
partners if they have desire for these two Nations
to perpetually and peacefully to Co-exist side by
side as a unified economically vibrant Iraq and
prudent to future generations.
At the same time the Kurdish people have every
prerogative on their realm to reclaim, the lands and
the properties which were taken away from them by
force, throughout various Iraqi regimes and the
harshest policy being under the reign of dictator
Since the inception of the Iraqi State, the colonial
power patched and forced undesirable marriage for
the two nations .
Baghdad’s leaders have not found for clarifying and
directing the seething social stigma, so that hope
in the future replaces veneration for the past in
the minds of the Kurds.
Look at the behavior of ex-Oil Minister Hussein al-Sharistani
and now he is the Deputy Prime Minister for energy;
Mr. Sharistani ‘s theism signature issue with the “
WORD OF OIL” of any Oil deal that the Kurdish
leaders make with any foreign Company is illegal.
Mr. Sharistani lived in Canada and went to school
over there, perhaps he knows the Canadian law,
especially the Oil law: “In Canada, the Provinces
have the Jurisdiction over the exploration,
development, conservation, management of
non-renewable resources in the Province.”
In the mid 1980s, the French speaking Quebec-
autonomous region of Canada made a direct Oil deal
agreement with the United States, despite objections
the deal went through.
Alas, if a Country should falls degenerate into the
rule by the few instead of by many, then it is quite
conceivable that people will be apathetic and
hopeless to the “social myth”.
