"Iraq oil output hits a new high  

Iraq is aiming to overtake rival oil producer Saudi Arabia
Oil production in Iraq has hit its highest level since former leader Saddam Hussein was ousted
in 2003.

Production has risen to 2.5 million barrels per day (bpd) from a steady 2 million bpd during the
US-led invasion, Iraq's new oil minister said.

Hussain al-Shahristani added that production was expected to rise to 2.7 million bpd by the end
of the year.

"We have been able to break records," he said of the government, which has been in place for
just over a month."

You got to hand it to these guys in Iraq....soldiers...police....Iraqi civilians....they have done a
super job.

Meantime back at the ranch.

Back in Iraq the ordinary citizen has little electricity , no running water, no schools but plenty of carnage and funerals. The queues outside petrol stations are longer and longer. Bombs are going off at record rates too.

What a wonderful job done there by the liberators indeed. Where has all this oil gone ? I wonder ?

Hallucinating Halliburton.

Reply caringhk,

There is an outbreak of selective blindness and deafness among the American patriots, especially so on this the 4th July. They are given to running amok with false facts and figures. They see black as white and they enjoy the parallel universe of things going gang-busters when they are just going bust.

Halliburton must be reaping this bonanza (if we can believe fishy ) of oil production. We told them their only allegiance is to the smell of the oily rag.

Dr Helen Caldicott is a paediatrician ( physician ) who is still trying to draw the attention of well meaning men and women around the world to the higher than ever danger of a nuclear holocaust but not many are listening. The ' depleted uranium ' and ' mini nukes ' are the nice sounding nuclear weapons which are sold as benign ' selective ' or ' smart ' bombs. These are being used as we speak around the world by the Yanks.

And Fish is trying to tell us how wholesome and American pie things are in Iraq and everywhere else !?

New government doing the job?

It's still lower than before 2003, but perhaps this is a sign that the Iraqis are getting things back on track. Can only hope this is a steady trend.

Have a little faith

The terrorists have kept the Iraqi people down....hoping the West would abandon them. "Stay the
Course" was the call from President Bush...."we will not cut and run".

"Attacks cease on Iraq's pipeline, oil exports boom
By Ryan Lenz, Associated Press  |  July 4, 2006

BEIJI, Iraq -- For more than two years the attacks came like clockwork. As soon as the military
secured and workers repaired the pipelines from Iraq's northern oil fields insurgents would
strike.

Perhaps insurgents feared reprisals in Salahuddin province, where pipelines from Kirkuk flow to
the country's largest refinery in Beiji. Terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's death maybe disrupted a chain of command that ordered the attacks, military officials said.

Whatever the cause, US forces welcome the change, even if history since the US-led invasion in
2003 has shown the free flow of oil in Iraq is only temporary at best.

``I just hope that it lasts long enough where people start realizing ` We're making money. We
could be rich like Kuwaitis,' " said Army Lieutenant Colonel Craig Collier, deputy commander of
the 3d Brigade, 101st Airborne Division. ``But what is really going on? We don't know."

In the past three weeks, Iraq has exported 6.2 million barrels of crude oil to Turkey from its
northern fields. Total exports from Iraq in that period, including the oil fields in the south, have
increased to 2.5 million barrels per day, the highest level since the invasion, the Oil Ministry reported.

With a $60 a barrel market price in Turkey, military officials believe exports so far equate to about $372 million since oil began flowing from the north. Oil is the biggest source of income for the
Iraqi government, which is struggling to curb violence and restore the supply of electricity and
water
.":)

(If the oil keeps flowing Meng....the people will have water and electricity. The terrorists do not
want the people of Iraq to have electricity or water.....or to fix up the schools and the hospitals.
Meng....why do you support the terrorists?)
