Not sure I see HCL any time soon. maybe this is what is needed to say we take it all or you take 15% and be done 

Lets see the Kurds are 17% of the population with over 40% of iRAQ'S proven oil reserves and they should except 15% of the budget. Sounds like a crappy deal to me.

The US Wants To Keep The Focus On ISIS, But Its Iraqi Allies Are Moving On

Experts have warned for years that US-backed Iraqi forces and US-backed Kurdish forces will turn against one another once the war on ISIS ends. Now the time has come.

Iraqi children step on a Kurdish flag as forces loyal to the central government in Baghdad advance toward the center of Kirkuk on Monday.

WASHINGTON — Two key American allies in the war on ISIS, the Iraqi military and the Kurdish peshmerga, have now turned their guns on one another — exactly one year from the day the two US-backed sides announced the start of their joint offensive to retake Mosul.

The sudden outbreak of fighting — which saw Iraqi forces and allied militia seizing the disputed city of Kirkuk from the Kurds — shows that even as the US insists that the war on ISIS remains the top priority, its two main partners on the ground have decided to move on.

"ISIS is a distraction," a Kurdish official told BuzzFeed News by phone from northern Iraq, where Kurdish leadership has been scrambling to address the crisis. "It has distracted the West for three years. It has distracted from the real problems in the country."

The success of the offensive to retake Mosul — the one-time Iraqi capital of ISIS's self-styled caliphate — relied on Iraqi and Kurdish cooperation. Brokering that cooperation between the two historic adversaries was a major success for the US officials who put together the battle plan. The early days of the offensive saw a rare moment of unity and goodwill between the two sides. As one Iraqi special forces convoy rolled north from Baghdad through peshmerga checkpoints, Iraqi soldiers cheerfully greeted the guards in basic Kurdish.

But the battle in Kirkuk shows an inherent flaw in US strategy, which is that in its push to roll back ISIS, it has failed to address Iraq’s deeply entrenched political disputes that have long threatened to put the US’s two allies on a course to war. Absent a coherent political plan, ramped-up US military support for both may have helped to bring the conflict to a head.

“We chose a strategy that had a very large risk of producing exactly this outcome,” said Jennifer Cafarella, a senior analyst at the Institute for the Study of War.

“The US arbitrarily decided in 2014 to focus exclusively on the anti-ISIS fight in Iraq and to subordinate any other policy considerations,” she said. “We ignored the fact that our anti-ISIS strategy allowed, if not encouraged, a very large buildup of Iranian proxy capability in Iraq, which is now being used in Kirkuk. And we made pragmatic and tactical decisions about where to use Kurdish forces against ISIS which set conditions for the post-ISIS war that is now unfolding by bringing Kurdish forces into disputed territories.”

Michael Knights, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said that instead of dealing with the difficult politics surrounding the war on ISIS, the US has preferred to focus on the military campaign.

“We love this war against ISIS. We’re winning it, we’re good at it, it doesn’t cost very much, and it ticks the boxes the president likes. So the whole machine of the US government really likes the simplicity,” he said. “Whereas all this other stuff is more complicated.”

People celebrated after Iraqi forces advanced into Kirkuk.

The history of conflict between Baghdad and Iraq’s Kurds — who control a semi-autonomous region in the north — dates to the founding of the country, with the Kurds long pushing for independence and Iraqi forces often responding with brutal force. It reached a head under the Saddam Hussein regime, which targeted the Kurds with a campaign of genocide. Later, after the Persian Gulf War, the US imposed a no-fly zone that helped to protect the Kurds and allowed them space to carve out autonomy. The Kurds thrived after the US toppled Hussein, as violence with Baghdad ebbed. Until recently disputes between the Kurds and Baghdad revolved around more pedestrian issues like oil revenues and military supplies.

Tensions ramped up considerably last month when the Kurds, emboldened by three years of US support against ISIS, carried out a referendum intended to set the stage for their eventual independence. Iraqi forces — backed by Shiite militia forces and tough rhetoric from Iran — had been threatening an incursion ever since. The fighting in Kirkuk represents the worstbout of bloodshed between the two sides since the fall of Hussein.

The Kurdish official found shades of the old days of Hussein’s Baathist regime in the scenes of Iraqi forces marching through the streets of Kirkuk, an oil-rich city that has long been disputed between the two sides. “Iraq has declared war on us. It’s reminiscent of the Baathists — Iraqi tanks rolling into Kirkuk, images of Kurds killed inside the city,” he said. “And in the meanwhile the Americans are just watching this unfold."

He accused the US of abandoning the Kurds in the face of aggression by Iraqi forces and militia groups who act as Iranian proxies. "I feel betrayed by one of our closest friends — the US,” he said. “The question for the Americans really, and I hate to put it in such simplistic terms, is a choice between Kurdistan and Iran.”

The peshmerga took control of Kirkuk after the Iraqi military fled the city in the wake of its rout at the hands of ISIS in Mosul in June 2014. On Monday, Baghdad television stations showed Arab residents of Kirkuk celebrating the arrival of Iraqi government forces. “Finally we have been liberated, thank god,” one resident told the correspondent of a channel close to a Shiite militia.

Iraqi forces flash the victory sign as they advanced toward Kirkuk's center.

And regime leaders in Iran hailed the Iraqi government offensive as a victory. “Today, the Kurdish forces' defeat foiled [Kurdish leader Masoud] Barzani's plots against the region,” said Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, according to the Tasnim news agency. “Barzani's plan, which was also Israel's behind-the-scene plan, was to seize the oil wells in Kirkuk in favor of Israel.”

Despite reported involvement of forces loyal to Iran in the offensive, neither the US nor other major western powers indicated that they would take any action against Baghdad. US military officials declined to condemn the Iraqi offensive in public comments — and suggested that the US would stay out of the dispute between two key allies. Col. Robert Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, even seemed to place the blame for the violence on the Kurds. “Despite the Kurdistan Regional Government’s unfortunate decision to pursue a unilateral referendum, dialogue remains the best option to defuse ongoing tensions and long-standing issues,” he told reporters in Washington. “We call on all actions in the region to focus on this common threat, and avoid stoking tensions among the Iraqi people.”

In a statement, the US embassy in Baghdad expressed concern over the violence and implored both sides to keep the focus on ISIS: “ISIS remains the true enemy of Iraq, and we urge all parties to remain focused on finishing the liberation of their country from this menace.”

Though ISIS has lost its major territory in Iraq, it still maintains pockets of control in the country, while the threat from the militants remains in the form of terror attacks and insurgency. In Syria, ISIS has ceded control of Raqqa and other key strongholds but is planning a last stand based around the province of Deir el-Zour, on the border with Iraq.

The US wants its local allies to keep up the fight against ISIS, continuing to roll back its remaining territory and ensuring that the militants don’t find a foothold to mount a comeback. But as the Kurds and Iraqis alike have made clear — the former with their independence push and the latter with the Kirkuk invasion — both now see the other as the main enemy.

Despite US efforts to keep the focus on ISIS, in fact, other forces in the region have likewise shown that they, too, are preparing to move on — consolidating their positions in preparation for the end of the major phases of the US-backed ground war. In recent days, Syrian forces loyal to Bashar al-Assad violated the terms of de-escalation deals to storm rebel-held quarters of eastern Damascus and Homs. Meanwhile, Turkish troops have moved into northern Syria’s Idlib province — in large part to prevent Syrian Kurds, the main US ally against ISIS in that country, from their own bid to expand the territory they have seized from ISIS and now seek to control.

Clashes or exchanges of fire except Mandar, in addition to that there are no quarrels of racial or sectarian after the government coordinated with some Kurdish parties as the Peshmerga forces withdrew from the positions received by our security forces ».

Mahdi strongly rejected «the intervention of foreign fighters from the PKK» in the Iraqi internal affairs, "asserting that" his security committee has evidence and evidence of their participation in standing with the Peshmerga to counter the federal forces. " The powers of the constitutional government, while the security expert Abdul Karim Khalaf, that the goal of the movements of the state of the redeployment of federal forces in Kirkuk extended the powers of the Federal Constitutional Government to the three provinces of the region (Sulaymaniyah, Erbil and Dohuk) to ensure the realization of law and order and the application of financial control and integrity and accountability and justice and control On the sovereign sites, airports, borders, ports and customs, indicating that all this must be borne by the province and meet its obligations to the state.

Kurdish political divisions weaken Barzani's position on the referendum

 

PUK officials accuse the president of the region of stealing 'oil' in order to strengthen his influence by imposing a referendum by force.

Kurdish military commanders facilitate the deployment of Iraqi forces in Kirkuk

captionb.gif

KIRKUK, Iraq (Reuters) - The most prominent Kurdish parties entered an open war following the advance of Iraqi forces in the face of Peshmerga fighters in Kirkuk, and PUK officials accused Iraqi Kurdistan President Massoud Barzani of stealing oil to boost his influence.

The rivalry between the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) led by Barzani and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), founded by late President Jalal Talabani, is so old that they fought armed confrontations in the 1990s.

But what fueled the dispute was the referendum on independence held on September 25 in the Kurdistan region.

The MP from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan in Iraq's parliament said Talabani said the referendum was "forcibly imposed" by a president who refused to listen to his allies, who proposed postponing a referendum until negotiations with Baghdad under UN supervision and mediation proposals offered by Iraqi President Fuad Masum.

"While we were protecting the Kurdish people, Massoud Barzani was stealing oil and strengthening his influence," said Lahore Sheikh Janki, the official in charge of the Kurdish counterterrorism apparatus in Sulaymaniyah, the stronghold of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan.

"As of now, we will not sacrifice our sons for the throne of Massoud Barzani," he said in a statement.

Barzani, head of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) founded by his father, was elected president of the Kurdistan region in 2009. The parliament extended his four-year term to two years in 2013.

Faced with strong opposition from his opponents, he said he would not run for president. But after the referendum established the "Supreme Political Council of Kurdistan" under his presidency, with the task of "managing the results of the referendum and relations with Baghdad and neighboring countries."

Barzani decides alone

More deeply, PUK leaders feel that Barzani was making decisions alone, especially because of the illness of his rival Jalal Talabani, who died in early October.

While refusing to reconsider the referendum and hand over Baghdad the infrastructure and military bases controlled by the Peshmerga during the chaos that prevailed after the attack of the Islamic State Organization in 2014, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan held secret negotiations with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi.

"Some of our leaders have cooperated in the redeployment of government forces in Kirkuk," said a senior PUK official in Kirkuk. "They facilitated the entry of troops without confrontations."

"Abadi announced on the eve of the referendum that he would issue an order to enter Kirkuk, take over the provincial council and enforce the law, but Kurdish leaders ignored these calls," he said.

"On the other hand, the KDP and the Peshmerga were not interested in Peshmerga (PUK) affairs in southern Kirkuk, nor did they provide them with the necessary weapons," he said.

The PUK's Peshmerga forces control southern Kirkuk, while the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) controls the north and east of Baghdad, but the Kurds demand that they be annexed to their territory.

"We have been saying for a few days that our equipment will not be enough for the battle, but we have not been heard," said a senior Kurdish official fighting in the southern front that the Peshmerga forces had withdrawn from some positions.

In a statement, the Peshmerga leadership in Erbil denounced "some PUK officials," accusing them of "betraying and helping the plot" against the Kurds.

"Massoud Barzani's media accuses us of treason," said Talabani. "But no one knows where the oil wells are and their production at a time when Barzani's party has controlled it since June 2014."

Oil first

BAGHDAD - The Iraqi authorities have imposed full control of Bay Hassan and Havana oil, the largest fields in the province of Kirkuk, which was under the control of the Peshmerga forces of the Kurdistan Democratic Party headed by Massoud Barzani.

An official statement said that "the federal police forces have extended full control over the fields of Bay Hassan and Havana oil in northern Kirkuk."

A senior Iraqi army officer said on Tuesday that the army completed a process to control all the oil fields run by the State Oil Company in Kirkuk.

He said Iraqi forces had taken control of the Bei Hassan and Afana oilfields northwest of Kirkuk on Tuesday after controlling the fields of Baba Karkar, Jampur and Khabbaz on Monday.

Oil officials in Baghdad said all fields were operating normally.

This comes after the advance of Iraqi forces Monday to several areas and facilities in the disputed province of Kirkuk between Baghdad and the Kurdistan region, without significant military resistance by the Kurds.

An oil ministry official said Monday that the oil pumping operation had stopped from the fields of Havana and Bay Hassan, which were controlled by the Peshmerga forces of the Kurdistan Democratic Party headed by Massoud Barzani.

"Kurdish technicians stopped pumping from the fields of Havana and Bay Hassan and fled the fields before Iraqi forces arrived," the official said.

On Tuesday, Iraqi forces retook control of the two fields, while restoring control of the mainly Yezidi city of Sinjar in the north of the country.

The control of the Monday on the building of the province of Kirkuk without battles and other sites, including oil fields in the disputed province of Kirkuk between Baghdad and the Kurdistan region.

The advance of Iraqi government forces comes in the oil-rich region of Dibs, where the Bei Hassan and Afana fields are under an operation ordered by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to regain control of Kurdish-controlled areas outside the three provinces representing the semi-autonomous Kurdish region.

The overnight military crackdown is the strongest step Baghdad has taken so far to disrupt the independence attempt by Kurds who have ruled themselves in an autonomous region inside Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003 and voted for independence in a referendum three weeks ago.

Abadi slaughter referendum Kurds without knife !!

Articles  Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 14:33 PM (280 views)20171017_023332-421.jpg                                                                                                                                              Abadi slaughter referendum Kurds without knife !!
 

By: Murad Ghadhban ....... 
Mr. Haider al-Abadi has proved a rare political skill unknown to the graduates of the call, who have stepped on the modern Iraqi political scene in a state of confusion. 
This time, however, Mr. Abadi proved an uncommon efficiency in his administration of the current crisis with the militias of Mr. Massoud Barzani, who is struggling to establish an empire for him in the name of the Kurdish brothers. 
He behaved with a wonderful calm, holding a soft knife and cutting a man's head from the head to the legs. He collected black ignorance, bad morals and ugliness, so that the leaders of the Kurds became confused, and their logic and logic are still incapable of self-revision. And fragmentation. And the fragmentation of the disaster they have introduced themselves into, can be considered crises. And finding solutions to it, calmly and rationally ...
The Iraqi street expressed satisfaction with the role of Abbadi because he was aware of the dangers that beset him, and the people did not hear from him empty gestures and threats as he is familiar and common in such crises, but touch calm procedures based on psychological and historical constants,
The Iraqi forces were able to participate with the popular crowd under his command and carried out since Monday morning orders to take down the flags of the Kurdistan region and replace them with Iraqi flag from the government buildings that were controlled. It has turned all the military balances that put the Peshmerga in place of defense and then the place of retreat; and will continue the pace of decline further after losing the city of Kirkuk, which is considered the Holy of Holies, the most important city in terms of symbolism and its implications in the hearts of Kurdish leaders. Which will remain the issue of that province recorded an escalation of crises In Iraq and the issue remains a chronic pain, if not resolved today. Because it is the mini-model of the most important problems not resolved so far, including land disputes and the division of oil and gas resources.
Iraqi counterterrorism forces have taken control of Key One, the largest military base in Kirkuk, controlled by Kurdish Peshmerga forces. Although the Kurdish TV "Rudao" reported that the Peshmerga was on high alert as the Iraqi forces moved towards Kirkuk, but the wind came in what the ships did not crave. 
The prime minister has managed the crisis in Kirkuk with all the fervor, holding an iron fist like a soft knife that is slaughtered unharmed, dealing with the ambiguous situation of the spirit of the person responsible for the security and safety of the people of all walks of life. 
We used to wake up on a painful separation .. It broadcasts a flame to the fire and we are glowing and silence enters. We have two professors writing the whirlpool of noise. We only carry the image of the homeland ... we sleep on its spectra ... and we wake up on its separation ... That picture remains the picture since the occupation American Enco to Iraq so far.

Mr. Prime Minister, your words play the idea I have addressed to the Iraqis, in which they said that "my duty is to work according to the Constitution to serve the citizens and to protect the unity of the country, which was at risk of partition as a result of the insistence on holding the referendum organized by the controllers in the Kurdistan region and unilaterally" They are like the tooth of the knife .. To cut doubt in certainty .. We live wrestling reality ... If not patience .. Beat you patience .. Is the only weapon .. And it is .. The soft knife will destroy the world of hatred and will remain that knife raises wounds And go back and then return ... ... And remains the local pain with the severity of fate and today and the moment is the sugar of that life ..... Vstbq J knife ........ and will not disappear soft blade with the wound last ... 
Has proved that the tsunami does not necessarily have to be destructive !!?
