Iraq Is Still Under Sanctions...

I am going to post this just released video on the Sanctions, that are still in place...7 years later. Sanctions are still in place, you read me right .

I don't care much for Kristen Saloomey's reporting...from Arabic Fox News Al-Jazeera. But am uploading the video anyway because I can see/hear the grotesque twists in reporting here...and I am about to blast them...

K.Saloomey starts her report with Under the rule of "ARAB" Saddam Hussein...is Saloomey an Israeli or a Persian by any chance ? And is it by implication that the current rulers of Iraq are not Arabs ? Well it's true they are not Arab they are of Iranian descent...but does that mean that now the Arab is gone, the sanctions should be lifted completely ? Wait till you hear the conclusion...

Then the video talks about the sanctions still being applied, since there is fear of Iraq developing weapons of mass destructions - believe it or not !!! even though the sanctions have practically destroyed Iraq's economy, making it totally dependent on food imports and the worst hit sector today is Iraq's agriculture.

The cost of sanctions for this " flourishing democracy" is too high ...with an unemployment rate not of 18% as the synopsis to this video says --but a rate of 50 to 60%. Get your facts right Al-Jazeera ! And am not holding my breath....

This 2mn video then concludes by implying that maybe after all,  the sanctions still need to be in place for Kuwait's sake...but there is NO Kuwait property to return, no border delineations to settle, if anything it is Kuwait that needs to give back land to Iraq and pay Iraq compensations since this little irrelevant province was/is as a major US base -- for attacking Iraq since 1991...but not only...

And of course, the Conclusion, the Finale --- Iraq is still under Sanctions because of "Arab"Saddam Hussein!

I think am switching to Fox News or CNN - at least I get the "real " thing...
