Iraq unions vow 'mutiny' over oil law

BAGHDAD, July 20 (UPI) -- Iraq's unions say the draft oil law is a threat and threaten "mutiny" if Parliament approves the bill.

"This law cancels the great achievements of the Iraq people," Subhi al-Badri, head of the Iraqi Federation of Union Councils, told the al-Sharqiyah TV station. He referred specifically to laws that nationalized Iraq's oil sector.

Iraq holds 115 billion barrels of proven reserves, the third largest in the world, and likely much more when the country is fully explored.

It could produce more than the 2 million barrels per day, and many are pushing the oil law as a means of solidifying investment in the sector. The law, as drafted, allows for foreign access to the oil, a line that must not be crossed, the oil unions say.

They have threatened to strike in the past -- and made good on the threat as recently as last month -- and claim workers of all sectors support them.

That was verified by Badri's interview, as reported by the Middel East Economic Survey.

"If the Iraqi Parliament approves this law, we will resort to mutiny," he said. "This law is a bomb that may kill everyone. Iraqi oil does not belong to any certain side. It belongs to all future generations.".....

This administration consitstently refers to the Iraqi Oil Laws it is pursuing as " Oil Sharing Agreements ", Orwellian double speak which is really about the blantant STEALING of Iraqs most important national resource. The only sharing thats going on, is the sharing of Huge Profits for the US multi national oil companies in the plunder of Iraq's oil riches, and they hope to profit big on this big lie, which is in truth the real mission behind the " Decider's " obsessive desire to attack a country, that never threatened ever, to attack the US. As this article shows, the Iraq people are waking up to whats being done to them, and they want no part of it. The occupation of Iraq needs to end, and the US needs to face up to the realities of the energy ( oil and gas ) addicted economy, and society that it has created. We have a huge problem as a nation, and the moral and reasonable solution to this predicament will not be found ( if we wish to TRULY imply that we are ethical in our intent and actions ) in the rampant plunder of other peoples of this world, and the resources within thier lands, as we have proceeded in a vast array of nefarious ways to the present.
