Iraqis against Trump grabbing their oil

This video from the USA says about itself:

9 November 2015

Donald Trump is very clear about his intentions in the Middle-East. He wants to steal their oil. The oil. O-I-L. Oil. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down.

From daily News Line in Britain today:

Iraqis dismissed comments by US President Donald Trump as ‘nonsense’ on Thursday, after he argued that the United States should have taken possession of the nation’s crude reserves. Trump, in a speech to CIA officials on Saturday, suggested that the United States should have taken Iraq’s oil in reimbursement for the 2003 invasion that put an end to Saddam Hussein’s rule, NRT reported.

Trump also suggested that taking Iraq’s oil would have prevented ISIL [ISIS] from rising up by removing a source of the group’s funding, according to a Huffington Post report of the encounter.

‘His comment on oil is an insolent interference on top of previous interferences since the American invasion of 2003. …

‘We are a sovereign people with dignity and ancient history and we will defend ourselves,’ said Baghdad resident Hassan Walhan. For Ali al-Moussawi, he sees Trump’s statement as a reflection on the Iraqi government’s weakness and lack of unity.

‘Trump is currently making terroristic statements in our view. Oil is not the property of America and it is not the property of Trump. It is the property of Iraq and the Iraqis.

‘Trump’s statement is nonsense. If Iraqis had been united and if we had a strong national government, he would not have dared to make such a statement,’ he said.

Commenting on Trump’s statement on oil, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Tuesday that Iraq’s oil is the property of Iraqis. ‘It wasn’t clear what he meant,’ Abadi told a news conference when asked about Trump’s comments. ‘Did he mean in 2003 or to prevent the terrorists from seizing Iraq’s oil?’

‘Iraq’s oil is constitutionally the property of the Iraqis,’ he said.
