And the buyer of the Kurdish crude oil is...

Talmay may never get custody of the oil because a Texas judge has ordered U.S. marshals to seize the cargo at the request of the Iraqi government.

The crude is controversial because the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan in Iraq drilled and shipped the oil in defiance of the Iraqi central government, who says the shipment is a violation of the Iraqi constitution.

In a court filing on Monday, Iraq laid claim to the cargo that it says was sold by the regional government of Kurdistan without permission from Baghdad, which has said such deals amount to smuggling.

Once Joe Biden becomes prez, his Iraqi multi-state solution will allow the Kurds to sell the oil. Then he'll nationalize Talmay and get his son to run it.

Who decides what is smuggled or not? i guess this judge answers to the UN.

The Kurds should be recognized by default, but socialists do not like that because they cannot change their trade from governing criminals to business men of same stature.

What jurisdiction does a Texas judge have over another country?? It’s totally ridiculous for anyone in the US to be dancing to the Iraqi government’s tune. Or any foreign government.

Don’t you know, Iraq is a territory of the US.

The judge is just issuing a ruling instructing our vassals in Iraq on how to deal with the extraction of raw materials which belong to new world order.

If our New York/London globalist leadership decides that the Kurds should be split off into their own country, then they will start a war so that happens. Until then, it looks like they fall under the jurisdiction of the territory of Iraq.
