"Petro-Dollar allocations". Isn't that a form of HCL?

 

Yes, and the National Oil Company Law.  What's going on is really that Basra is going to be allotted Petro-Dollar allocations to resolve the crisis, now every province will want some of that action.

Billions wasted by Iraq in the electricity sector was enough to buy a global electricity companies in full

Government solutions in the electricity file "irresponsible" ...

Electricity crisis sparked protests in southern IraqElectricity crisis sparked protests in southern Iraq
 

It was not in the interest of the Iraqis to turn the imported Iranian electricity, at least, to a sword slapped on their necks and a paper of political pressure transferred from the hand of Tehran to Baghdad, and vice versa, in an attempt to exchange roles in the battle of millions of Iraqis.

This is clear that Iran's supply of electricity to Iraq for billions of dollars years ago will not and will not stop the suffering of Baghdad with the lack of electricity, and it has become a pressure sheet only with Iran, according to analysts and officials.

Independent Iraqi politician Ghanim al-Abed said successive Iraqi governments had spent about $ 40 billion on electricity. "That amount would have been possible to buy the assets of entire electric companies, such as Siemens, Germany," he said.

Observers confirmed that Iran, through its arms in Iraq, obstructed the construction of power plants, to keep holding this sensitive paper in order to use it as a pressure on the Iraqi people when they feel that their interests are threatened.

This is what the crisis in Basra was like when Iran ignited an electricity crisis in an attempt to pressure Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and Iraqi factions seeking to form a new government after parliamentary elections that resulted in the retreat of organically linked groups in Tehran.  

In the grip of Iran

"The ruling political class in Iraq wants to help Iran under its siege, so turn a blind eye to the construction of local stations," Abed said, adding that the cost of a steam power plant is $ 300 million, 10 of which are enough to produce 3,000 MW.

Abed stressed that "government corruption and lack of accountability and lack of control are all factors hindering the progress of the Iraqi government towards self-sufficiency of electricity," describing government solutions in this case as "irresponsible."

This was demonstrated by the recent resort of the government, in an attempt to calm the protests, to cut out 400 out of 750 MW of Mosul's share of electricity to solve the problem of electricity worsening in the southern cities.

Iran has been fueling Iraq since 2007 with four power lines reaching Basra, Amarah, Diyala and Khanaqin, supplying these areas with only 1,200 megawatts, according to contracts signed between Baghdad and Tehran in 2007, 2011 and 2013.

However, this amount of electricity does not address the shortage of electricity in Iraq, as the country needs an additional 8,000 megawatts to fill the deficit in their networks. Iraq needs 23 thousand megawatts to achieve full sufficiency, which currently produces 15 thousand megawatts.

At the mercy of Tehran

The spokesman for the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity, Musab teacher, that Baghdad is currently in the establishment of stations will enter service during the next two years to produce the eight thousand MW, which is expected to end the crisis.

But the teacher showed great fear of the problem of waste, which remains a stumbling block, even if the country reached the self-sufficiency of electricity, he said that the current loss of up to 65 percent, is thefts and misuse and connections without meters and other abuses.

Although Baghdad renewed electricity supply contracts with Tehran earlier this year, the contracts stipulate that Iranian cities should be given priority if there is an internal shortage, which makes Iraq at Iran's mercy at any time.

Protests continue in several Iraqi provinces due to poor living conditions, while the authorities raised the state of security alert and vowed to take tough measures against what they described as infiltrators.

 

Root causes:

 

On July 8, protests erupted in Basra against shortage of jobs, electricity, water and basic services.

 

Image1_720181818184132475468.png

The causes of the protests were not a spur of the moment thing as Iraq suffer from plague of corruption since the US-led invasion in 2003, especially during former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki era.

According to documents and international reports, Iraq witnessed one of its worst corruption cases in its history during Maliki's era, which lasted eight years from May 2006 till 2014.

A report issued by the Centre of Development Studies (CDS) in London revealed the disappearance of 120 billion dollars of Iraq's financial budgets during the era of al-Maliki as the country's prime minister.

 

Image1_7201818182329282379454.png

The report pointed out that Iraq has achieved huge financial surpluses that could have contributed to the reconstruction and transformation of Iraq to be a modern country, confirming that $700 billion of the country's budget went mostly to the pockets of corrupt officials in Maliki's government.

It added that the oil prices reached its highest record exceeding $115 per barrel during Maliki's period in office, stressing that Iraq made huge gains from oil revenues that Maliki's government stole for itself.

The "CDS" also pointed in its report to the decline in reserves of the Central Bank of Iraq at a time when it should have increased, noting that Iraq's budget rose from $100.5 billion in 2012 to $145.5 billion in 2014 but the central bank's reserves fell from $88 billion to $67 billion.

 

 

Ongoing protests

 

Hundreds of Basra's demonstrators have blocked the main road to the northern Rumaila oil field, the largest Iraqi oil field in the province, preventing workers to reach their workplaces.

Sources said that the demonstrators blocked the road in order to protest against oil companies' rejection to offer job opportunities for Basra residents.

Observers who spoke to The Baghdad Post said that Iran stands behind the protests witnessed in southern Iraq.

They said that Iran is not only responsible for cutting electricity and water in the south, but it also inciting Basra's residents against oil companies operating there because they are not recruiting them.

The observers pointed out that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani threats that process of preventing oil companies in the Gulf from working and exporting their oil would start from southern Iraq prove that Iran is standing behind the crisis.

They called on the government of Haider al-Abadi to respond quickly to the demands of the people of Basra in order to not give Iran the chance to use the situation to destroy Iraq.

 

Observers told The Baghdad Post that hundreds of elements of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps terrorists had entered Basra through Shalamcheh border crossing with military vehicles, aiming to seize control of Basra after protesters attacked on Iranian parties' headquarters.

 

Image1_7201818182445806460680.png

Basra protests encouraged other provinces in southern Iraq to hold protests to demand improving live standard.

In Najaf, Thousands of protesters have stormed its International Airport to protest against the high unemployment rates and lack of services.

Iran, UAE and Jordan have suspended flights to Najaf due to the security situation at its airport.

Iraqi riot police have opened fire at protesters, killing a number of them.

Najaf protesters attempted to break into Iranian-affiliated Badr militia's headquarters, after a number of protesters shot dead in the city.

In Karbala, similar protests erupted. An Iraqi protester died from wounds inflicted by security forces during protests staged in Karbala demanding enhanced basic services and job opportunities.

In Maysan, dozens of demonstrators in the province of Maysan protested the poor services and shortage in electricity and clean water.

 

Two people were killed and 28 others injured, including police personnel, during the sweeping protests in Maysan against deterioration in economy.

 

Image1_7201818182136158194447.png

Informed sources said that demonstrators were killed after clashes between protesters and security forces in Maysan.

In press statements, Maysan Police Chief Dhafer al-Muhammadawi said the security forces have been deployed to secure the anti-government protests, oil fields, borders of the province and government buildings.

Muhammadawi underlined that civil defense units have put a fire out, which protesters have set in car wheels at public streets.

Well-informed sources said that security forces have launched a large-scale arrest campaign against Maysan protesters.

Dhi Qar province witnessed the most aggressive protests, as Iraqi police have brutally dispersed protesters in the province's Nasiriyah city.

Iraqi riot police fired tear gas to disperse demonstrators who stage protests near Dhi Qar's provincial building, as well as firing live rounds at protesters.

At least 36 policemen were wounded in clashes with protesters in Dhi Qar province, Dhi Qar police command said.

In a press release, the command explained that the number of wounded policemen has risen to 36, while six civilians were injured in the protests.

Iraqi authorities have released the protesters who were detained while attempting to storm the house of Dhi Qar governor, a well-informed source said.

The source explained that the protesters were held on charges of riots that broke out near the governor's house.

The number of those who were injured in protests in Dhi Qar Province has jumped to 75, well-informed sources told The Baghdad Post

 

Escalating crisis 

 

Iraqi activists called to launch unified demonstrations on Friday in Baghdad, Basra, Wasit, Maysan, Dhi Qar, Babil, Diwaniyah, Karbala and Najaf.

The activists have launched also a petition campaign, in which they demand the interference of the Iraqi army in order to oust the government of Haider al-Abadi.

 

Image1_720181818242423242527.png

Spokesperson of the Arab tribes in the disputed areas between Erbil and Baghdad, Muzahim al-Hewitt called on Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to resign after he failed to deal with the ongoing protests.

Hewitt said that Abadi is responsible for the violent acts witnessed in several Iraqi provinces as he did not respond to the demands of their people, adding that the people of these provinces have the right to protests as they suffer from the lack of basic services.

He noted that Abadi's government is implementing the same approach of former Egyptian president, Mohamed Morsi who worked according to a religious and sectarian approach through the intervention of religious clerics in the countries' policies.

Activists also called the Iraqi army to take serious actions against the Iranian militias in Iraq.

Observers stressed that Iran is playing a "dirty game" as the mullah's regime has promised to spread chaos in the region to disrupt oil sales in the Gulf.

They pointed out that Iraq is heading into a massive popular uprising as the Iraqi people have lost their faith in Abadi's government.

Guess the "people" have had enough of those empty promises...time for action.  With all of the money that has been pilfered by Maliki, he should be the first to do the dance at the end of a rope.  Just seeing him sitting at that table conducting "government" business is a disgusting insult to the citizens of Iraq. Hell will not be hot enough for some people!
