  • Business brisk for Kurdish gunsmith in Iraq

    In gunsmith Bahktiyar Sadr-Aldeen's workshop in the Kurdish city of Irbil, every weapon has a story. Sadr-Aldeen, an Iraqi Kurd, has seen business increase by 50 percent since last June, when Islamic State militants took over Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, 82 kilometres (52 miles) west of Irbil. The Kurdish fighting force known as the pershmerga has been at war against the Islamic State militant group ever since. Sadr-Aldeen says there is "no professional company" to fix all the weapons that "naturally break" during the fighting. "That is why I fix them. We cannot just throw them away, because we are in a war," he explained. Aged 36, Sadr-Aldeen already has more than a quarter-century of experience, making him the peshmerga's top gunsmith in the region. He says he now fixes ei...

  • Iraqi Kurds 'prepared to draw own borders', Barzani warns Baghdad - BBC News

    The president of Iraqi Kurdistan has signalled it will draw the borders of a future Kurdish state if Baghdad does not accept a vote for independence in a referendum due later this month. Massoud Barzani told the BBC he wanted to reach an agreement with the central government if Kurds opted to secede. Iraq's prime minister has rejected the referendum as unconstitutional. Mr Barzani also warned the Kurds would fight any group that tried to change the "reality" in Kirkuk by force. Kurdish Peshmerga forces have taken control of the oil-rich city, which has large Arab and Turkmen populations, and other areas claimed by Baghdad over the past three years while driving out the jihadist group Islamic State. Shia militias have said they will not allow Kirkuk to be part of an independent Kurdistan. ...

In gunsmith Bahktiyar Sadr-Aldeen's workshop in the Kurdish city of Irbil, every weapon has a story. Sadr-Aldeen, an Iraqi Kurd, has seen business increase by 50 percent since last June, when Islamic State militants took over Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, 82 kilometres (52 miles) west of Irbil. The Kurdish fighting force known as the pershmerga has been at war against the Islamic State militant group ever since. Sadr-Aldeen says there is "no professional company" to fix all the weapons that "naturally break" during the fighting. "That is why I fix them. We cannot just throw them away, because we are in a war," he explained. Aged 36, Sadr-Aldeen already has more than a quarter-century of experience, making him the peshmerga's top gunsmith in the region. He says he now fixes eight to 10 weapons a day compared to a few during his pre-war business. For three days, Sadr-Aldeen has been trying to polish the blood off an M16 rifle brought in by a pershmerga soldier last week. "It is an American made gun given to the Iraqi army in Mosul. Da'esh took it. It was in the hands of Da'esh (the Islamic State group) and five days ago it fell in the hands of peshmerga," he explained. Located in a cellar in Irbil's bazaar, Sadr-Aldeen's shop is a well-known spot for peshmerga soldiers. Darawan Abu Bakr, a 28 year-old fighter, on leave from his post outside the city of Kirkuk, is a regular customer. Visiting the shop to have a weapon fixed, Abu Bakr said, "I have brought other weapons to Bakhtiyar (Sadr-Aldeen) as well and he repaired all of them. He is very good at his job. None of the guns he repaired have malfunctioned again. They all worked perfectly." Now a father of five, Sadr-Aldeen has been working in the shop, which was started by his father, since he was a child. He took over the business when he was 11-years-old after his father was arrested by the forces of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. His father spent 10 years in prison and today is too old to work. Sadr-Aldeen also modifies weapons, taking special pride in his work fixing Kalashnikov rifles. He showed off one weapon with a shortened barrel that makes it lighter and capable of firing more powerful bursts of ammunition. "I modified every single part of it. The cover, the folding arm, the chamber, I made it fourteen years ago. It is all handmade," he said. He also does not limit his work to his shop. Sometimes Sadr-Aldeen goes out to the front lines himself, mostly to repair heavy weapons that cannot be transported. The peshmerga send a car and take him out to the front line to do his work. He said he does not charge for the battlefield repairs, saying that is his way of supporting the cause.

LEADIN Life for those living in Iraq's Northern Kurdish region is carrying on as usual despite the intensifying violence elsewhere. The city of Dohuk is on the border with Turkey, but for one family even the worsening conflict in the south cannot dampen their preparations for a local wedding. STORYLINE: Nashwa Zayto and her mother are shopping, buying gifts for the dowry for her sister's upcoming wedding. Picking out sugar pots, it's just another day for the two women in Dohuk, a city in Iraq's Northern Kurdish region. As other parts of the country descend into chaos, this city of one million people is an oasis of relative calm and stability. Many residents here say their lives have not been that affected by the conflict. "We are fine and feel very safe here," says Nashwa Zaytoh. "But we feel sorry for the people in other areas of Iraq because of the situation." In the last week parts of Iraq have been overrun by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), as it fights a fierce territorial battle with government troops. Hundreds of people have been killed and hundreds of thousands more have fled Iraq's northern cities as the group vows to take their fight to Baghdad. Although Iraq's second city Mosul is currently in ISIL control, and lies only 60 kms (37 miles) away from Dohuk, it's business as usual in one of the city's main shopping streets, Bazaar-e Gulan. Shopkeeper Ashty Shafeeg says his business hasn't seen a dip in trade. "For now, Duhok is safe. We haven't closed our shops, we can visit our families without any problems." Iraq's Kurds run the autonomous region in northern Iraq but even they are now involved in the crisis, and are protecting the eastern city of Kirkuk. Still, Shafeeg credits the Kurdistan Regional Government's leadership with making him feel safe. "It's all about our president, Massoud Barzani. We respect him and love him and he in turn protects us and our families," he explains. Despite not getting involved in Iraq's sectarian troubles over the last decade, and enjoying relative autonomy from Iraq's central government, ISIL are an unknown quantity. As such, the Kurdish government is taking no chances. The peshmerga,or Kurdish armed forces, have formed a perimeter along their region's border with ISIL controlled territories estimated to be some 1,000km (620 miles) long. But locals drinking in one of the city's many tea houses don't seem worried. Taher Rasheed has a son in the army in Western Iraq. "My son is a soldier and is in Rabia. There's no war there, the peshmerga control everything, even the borders." Should anything change, he says the army are prepared to fight. "But if the Daash (ISIL) attack them, they will attack back and fight for our land." For now, Dohuk remains open for business.

A Kurdish minibus driver said that he visits Mosul every month, stays for several days, and then heads home with some sweets bought from Ahmad Halwani. “It is not expensive, and this sweet is baked with ghee,” said the driver from Erbil. “Compared to Erbil sweets, this one has more pistachio in it.”

The British government was the de facto hidden power behind the Anglo-Persian Oil Company. Anglo-Persian Oil Company (APOC) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Persian_Oil_Company On 14 April 1909, Burmah Oil created the Anglo-Persian Oil Company (APOC) as a subsidiary and also sold shares to the public. Oil production started in 1913 at a refinery built at Abadan, for the next 50 years it was the largest oil refinery in the world (see Abadan Refinery). Winston Churchill, who was then First Lord of the Admiralty. Churchill, as a part of a three-year expansion program, sought to modernize Britain's navy by abandoning the use of coal. Furthermore, Churchill wanted to free Britain from its reliance on the Standard Oil and Royal Dutch-Shell oil companies. In exchange for secure oil supplies for its ships, the British government injected new capital into the company and, in doing so, acquired a controlling interest in APOC. The contract that was set up between the British Government and APOC was to hold for 20 years. The British government also became a de facto hidden power behind the oil company. APOC took a 50% share in a new Turkish Petroleum Company (TPC) organized in 1912 by Calouste Gulbenkian to explore and develop oil resources in the Ottoman Empire. After a hiatus caused by World War I it reformed and struck an immense gusher at Kirkuk, Iraq in 1927, renaming itself the Iraq Petroleum Company (IPC). The British government, mandate holders in Iraq, were concerned at the unrest in the colony. They decided to step back from direct administration and create a monarchy to head Iraq while they maintained the mandate. Following a plebiscite showing 96% in favour, which was not really accurate, but created by a British council of ministers who wanted to put Faisal in power, Faisal agreed to become king. In August 1921 he was made king of Iraq. Gertrude Bell http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gertrude_Bell Gertrude Margaret Lowthian Bell became highly influential to British imperial policy-making due to her skill and contacts, built up through extensive travels in Arabia & Greater Syria, Mesopotamia, and Asia Minor. Bell helped establish the Hashemite dynasties in what is today Jordan as well as in Iraq where upon Faisal's arrival in 1921, Bell advised him in local questions, including matters involving tribal geography and local business. She also supervised the selection of appointees for cabinet and other leadership posts in the new government. On 7 March 1920, Faisal was proclaimed King of the Arab Kingdom of Syria (Greater Syria) by the Syrian National Congress government of Hashim al-Atassi. In April 1920, the San Remo conference gave France the mandate for Syria, which led to the Franco-Syrian War. In the Battle of Maysalun on 24 July 1920, the French were victorious and Faisal was expelled from Syria. He went to live in the United Kingdom in August of that year. In March 1921, at the Cairo Conference, the British decided that Faisal was a good candidate for ruling the British Mandate of Iraq because of his apparent conciliatory attitude towards the great power and based on advice from T. E. Lawrence, more commonly known as Lawrence of Arabia. But, in 1921, few people living in Iraq even knew who Faisal was or had ever heard his name. With help of British officials, including Mrs Gertrude Bell, he successfully campaigned among the Arabs of Iraq and won over popular support. The Sykes--Picot Agreement, officially known as the Asia Minor Agreement, was a secret agreement between the governments of the United Kingdom and France, with the assent of Russia, defining their proposed spheres of influence and control in the Middle East should the Triple Entente succeed in defeating the Ottoman Empire during World War I. The negotiation of the treaty occurred between November 1915 and March 1916. The agreement was concluded on 16 May 1916. The agreement effectively divided the Arab provinces of the Ottoman Empire outside the Arabian peninsula into areas of future British and French control or influence. The terms were negotiated by the French diplomat François Georges-Picot and British Sir Mark Sykes.

Kurdish independence from Iraq referendum explained in 3 minuets kurdish independence referendum Residents of Kirkuk and Iraqi Kurdistan will go to the polls Monday for a controversial referendum on independence, which if they vote “yes” as expected, will begin the process of turning their autonomous enclave into an independent state. The United States opposes the referendum, but Mr. Manafort has carved out a long and lucrative career advising foreign clients whose interests have occasionally diverged from American foreign policy. And he has continued soliciting international business even as his past international work has become a focus of the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, into ties between Russia and Mr. Trump and his associates, including possible collusion between them to influence the presidential election.
