Migration laws may split up iraqi family groups on social and political grounds, making a political settlement impossible. A third reason for the divisions are internal divisions within the family. Some of the members of the Qatari family have close ties to the US Congress and its allies in Washington.
In June 2007, Sheikh Musaed bin Ibrahim al-Thani, the head of the Qatar Petroleum Corporation, announced that the Qatari government would stop all oil production and exports from Iraq. This marked a significant step in the decision of the Qatari Petroleum Corporation to cut oil supplies to Iraq. Although some Iraqis believed the decision to restrict production could damage Iraq’s national image, the impact of reducing oil production on national finances in an oil-rich country like Iraq could be more limited.
An independent invest더킹카지노igation by the independent Kuwait Center for Human Rights in October 2007 found that the Iraqi government had committed serious human rights violations in some of the cases cited by Kuwaiti opposition journalist Qassim al-Jabouri. The report also stated that Iraqi courts had not upheld the judicial rulings of state-run Iraqi courts.
In April 2009, Qatari authorities began withdrawing some oil from Iraq and selling it thr바카라사이트ough Gulf states and Jordan, causing a spike in oil prices in the Gulf. In early September 2009, Iraq and other Gulf states announced they would sign the United Nations‘ Gulf of Iraq Gas Transparency Initiative (GOGTI) – an agreement establishing transparency rules for international oil sales. Since then, in January 2010 Iraq and Kuwait signed the Qatar-Iraq Gas Corridor Agreement (QEGCAR).
Qatar has also made political contributions to the opposition movement in Syria. The Qatari embassy in Damascus issued a statement in July 2009 calling upon Syrian opposition parties to continue „their fight to overthrow President Assad and his regime and his brother and to build the revolutionary and democratic state.“ In August 2009, the Qatar Institute for the Study of Radicalization published a report called „ISIS: Al-Qaeda’s Syrian Army, Jihadis and the Crisis of the Arab World.“
U.S. Military Strikes in Iraq
The United States began an aerial campaign in Iraq in January 2003 with the invasion of the country by a coalition of Arab states with military forces of NATO, the United Nations, and the United States. USAF/NATO aircraft conducted hundreds of air strikes on Iraq from March 2002 to September 2003 that killed or wounded approximately 300,000 Iraqi troops.
At the same time, the US began to conduct joint US/British military바카라사이트 operations to prevent the spread of Islamic State or I
