Mosul under Attack.

From 8 months ago, I've been saying it over and over, watch out for Mosul, something is being planned there. Not only that, when I listened to some of the testimonies of American war vets, one of them said that his platoon was charged of "forcibly removing and displacing Sunnis from the Nineveh province and bring in Shia families instead." You can still hear these testimonies, they are available on the Web. And if you insist, I will have to dig out the link for you. But I much rather you do your own research as I really have no time to keep giving you proof after proof, to no avail...

And here come the latest news from Mosul, stuff you will not read in your mainstream media, nor in the Iraqi government media concerning operation "Lion's roars."

A prominent tribal Sheikh from Mosul by the name of Fayez Munif Al-Faysal, talking to Arabic Al-Jazeera, qualified the current attack on Mosul as the "Iranian attack."

He said the following and am quoting word for word.

- The attack on Mosul has been planned for many months in advance.

- Mosul is the second biggest city after Baghdad.

- It is being conducted by the Americans and the sectarian government forces.

- The sectarian government brought whole trucks of Shias from Baghdad over and above the American and Iraqi forces, to conduct the operations.

- 200 have been arrested so far. They were not Al-Qaeda, some of them are; ex-army officers who fought in the Iran-Iraq war, Baathists, tribal heads and academics...

- The sectarian Iraqi government wanted at first to have the ex-army officers work for them. They refused. They refused because they understand the sectarian Iranian plot/move against Mosul. We are Arabs through and through and we know what the Iranian agenda is all about. It's all about revenge. But maybe Iran does not know the people of Mosul well...but they will find out soon. We will not submit to the sectarian Iraqi government nor to Iran.

-This attack on Mosul will last several months as per Al-Maliki declarations.

- The ones who are fighting back are the Islamic Army of Iraq and the Jihad Front and others from the tribes...

(IAI and the Jihad Front are members of the IRAQI RESISTANCE not to be confused with Al-Qaeda)

Now compare the above from the mouth of someone who is a pure Muslawee, i.e from Mosul, to the repugnant and grotesque article by Cockburn in the Independent, which he titled "Ghost city' Mosul braces for assault on last bastion of al-Qa'ida in Iraq." I am sure this so-called journalist is working for the Americans and the Iranians simultaneously. Nothing to be surprised about, he has already given us many flavors of his allegiances in the past.

In parallel but still very related.

Today, the "regional government of Iqlim Kurdistan" announced that it discovered 3 oil fields in Northern Iraq, with a production capacity of 100'000 barrels a day and with an estimated reserve of 2 Billion barrels.

It has therefore decided to offer tenders for the construction of two oil refineries. Twenty contracts have been awarded so far to the following companies from : America, South Korea, Australia, India and Turkey.

And you tell me there is no American-Israeli-Iranian conspiracy. Ha!
