* Baghdad, United States oppose pipeline* Will reduce Kurds reliance on Baghdad* Completion expected in Sept* Poses threat to ties with Turkey -Baghdad official* Dispute over revenue sharingBy Isabel Coles and Ahmed RasheedBATILE, Iraq/BAGHDAD, July 1 (Reuters) - Sparks fly asworkmen weld together a pipeline set to carry crude from theself-ruled Kurdistan region of Iraq to Turkey, defying thecentral government and shifting the energy balance of power inthe region.Some 600 km away, Iraqi officials in Baghdads heavilyfortified oil ministry are threatening dire consequences if thepipeline is completed, but appear powerless to prevent the Kurdsexporting oil without their consent.Turkeys courtship of the Kurds has strained relations withBaghdad, which says the pipeline would set a precedent for otherprovinces to pursue independent oil policies, potentiallyleading to the break-up of Iraq.They tell us to finish it as soon as possible because theydont want the Iraqi government to do something...

See also War zone safety. The easiest way to stay safe in Baghdad is not to go there in the first place, except for official reasons. Movement within Baghdad is difficult and entry into the International Zone, aka Green Zone, requires a pass or that you be accompanied by authorized officials. Iraq is a war zone and even if youre from a country which is part of the coalition, you will not be granted entry into the IZ without authorization. Most expats and business travellers to Iraq hire a security detail which constantly monitors the security situation within Iraq and around Baghdad. Travel outside the IZ is extremely dangerous. Roadside and car bombs are detonated every day in Baghdad. Many Iraqis are armed. Markets and popular gathering places are frequent targets of bombers. As a foreigner you are more likely to be targeted for kidnapping. Kidnappings are often financially motivated. These threats are not restricted to Americans or women. You are also likely to be refused access to ...
Baghdad (Arabic: بغداد‎, [baɣˈdaːd] ( listen)) is the capital of Iraq. The population of Baghdad, as of 2016[update], is approximately 8,765,000,[citation needed] making it the largest city in Iraq, the second largest city in the Arab world (after Cairo, Egypt), and the second largest city in Western Asia (after Tehran, Iran). Located along the Tigris River, the city was founded in the 8th century and became the capital of the Abbasid Caliphate. Within a short time of its inception, Baghdad evolved into a significant cultural, commercial, and intellectual center for the Islamic world. This, in addition to housing several key academic institutions (e.g., House of Wisdom), garnered the city a worldwide reputation as the "Centre of Learning". Baghdad was the largest city of the Middle Ages for much of the Abbasid era, peaking at a population of more than a million. The city was largely destroyed at the hands of the Mongol Empire in 1258, resulting in a decline that would linger through ...

Cytokine Gene Polymorphisms in Iraqi Patients with Viral Hepatitis, 978-3-659-94963-0, 9783659949630, 3659949639, Genetics, Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver that is most commonly caused by one of the five types of hepatitis viruses; A, B, C, D and E. These types are of a greatest concern because of the burden of illness and death they cause and the potential for outbreaks and epidemic spread worldwide; in particular, types B (HBV) and C (HCV). Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the association between serum level of five cytokines (IL-2, IL-4, IL-10, TNF-α and IFN-γ) and their gene polymorphisms defined by polymerase chain reaction with sequence specific primers (SSP-PCR) at 11 positions (IL2-330, IL2+166, IL4-1098, IL4-590, IL4+33, IL10-1082, IL10-819, IL10-592, TNF-308, TNF-238 and IFNγ+874) in samples of HBV and HCV infected Iraqi patients, in order to identify specific immunogenetic markers (cytokine SNPs) that may be associated with HBV and HCV infections.
The Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) believes it can generate significant revenue by helping alleviate Turkish power shortages, KRG Deputy Prime Minister Qubad Talabani said on Thursday.. Turkey consumes some 50 billion cubic meters of gas annually, receiving up to 60 percent of its supplies from Russia, according to Turcas, a Turkish energy company.. "[There is] no secret that Turkey has major shortages of power and they need power… gas that can turn to power or actual power that could come from Kurdistan," Talabani stated at a conference hosted by the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, DC.. The power sector, Talbani continued, could generate significant revenues for the Iraqi Kurdistan region.. Iraqi Kurdistan is in a difficult financial position, he noted, because Iraqs central government is not allocating the required amount of funding.. The KRG has reached out to leaders across Europe for economic assistance, Talabani added.. On Wednesday, Turkish media reported that private ...
Alison: What is the entrepreneurial and startup ecosystem like in Baghdad? Ali: I think Iraqis are very entrepreneurial. In the 90s, Iraq was under many UN sanctions. If you worked for the government, you couldnt make much money, so most Iraqis started their own businesses. The culture is there, but its not the entrepreneurial ecosystem thats here in Silicon Valley. Its not as industrialized like it is here, and most of the businesses are different. Most are not in tech.. The tech ecosystem in Iraq really started about three years ago, as we were starting the maker space. Through the maker space, we organized large events such as Startup Weekends. Weve organized three in Baghdad and two in Basra in the south. We got a lot of traction with young people because they like the idea of being their own bosses. We are one of the youngest nations in the world. Most of the population is 16 to 25 years old.. There are a lot of things that entrepreneurs can build, and there are a lot of untapped ...
Given that most of the Left would be happy to leave Iraq without victory, to leave Iraq to the terrorists, in short, to lose the war in Iraq, how does adopting the Lefts choice help us win the larger war? Us losing in Iraq will strengthen, not weaken, the enemys will. Us losing in Iraq will severely erode the pride and confidence of the US military, leaving us with a military reminiscent of the post-Vietnam era. Us losing in Iraq will weaken US political will to continue the fight against militant Islamic fascism. Us losing in Iraq will encourage many more Muslim men without futures to join the jihad because they will believe they can win. Us losing in Iraq will confirm to moderate Muslims and quietly allied Muslim nations that the US is weak, irresolute, faithless and destined to lose the long war. Us losing in Iraq will prove bin Ladens characterization of people choosing the strong horse over the weak horse correct. Us losing in Iraq makes the large war longer, bloodier, and much more ...
What steered you to oncology?. My preference toward a career in oncology developed over time while in the United States. During my clinical training at the different hospitals in Baghdad, oncology was in its infancy and not a developed field in Iraq, by comparison with other subspecialties. At that time, smoking was quite prevalent and preventive cancer care was nonexistent. Those variables coupled with other socioeconomic and cultural factors contributed to patients presenting with far advanced tumors. Baghdad hosted the countrys major medical centers, and as students we saw some of the most complex and advanced instances of cancer.. At the time, it struck me that something was wrong with cancer care in Iraq. People shouldnt have to wait that long to have care, and early detection and prevention of potentially preventable cancers should be a priority.. However, my true momentum toward oncology was built during medical training at Wayne State University. There, I was exposed to a broad ...

On Friday, the US Ambassador in Iraq, Stuart Jones revealed that Washington and Baghdad had an agreement on prosecution granting privileges and immunity to US forces, promising the tribes to obtain an integrated role with Iraqi security forces in the battle against the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and stressing the importance of militias supported by Iran under the supervision and control of the Iraqi state.. Jones said in an interview with the Associated Press Agency followed by IraqiNews.com, "Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi assured that US forces would have immunity from prosecution," pointing out that, "these forces will have a different role.". Jones added, "We have assurances from the Iraqi government on the privileges and immunities that we need," noting that, "these assertions were the basis of the written communications between the two governments, and were based on the strategic framework agreement which is also the legal basis for our partnership.".

Once the US-led coup against Maliki is completed, candidates to head a government of "national salvation" -that is, a military dictatorship, include such figures as former interim prime minister Iyad Allawi and pliable senior officers of the US-created Iraqi army. A coup would involve a massive escalation of violence to crush anti-American resistance throughout Iraq, and particularly the Mahdi Army militia of Moqtada al-Sadr and its stronghold in the impoverished Shia neighborhood of Sadr City in Baghdad.. Senator McCain, probably on privately leaked information from the Baker Iraq Study Group, is now making loud noises about the need for stepping up the number of US troops sent to Iraq, in line with the coup and the massive "cleansing" of anti-US forces in Iraq. An October 24th New York Times extended editorial ("Trying to Contain the Iraq Disaster") recommended an intensification of the violence and terror against the Iraqi resistance. Under the heading "Stabilize Baghdad," the editorial ...

Over 1,291 days after the first shock-and-awe attack on downtown Baghdad, its not unreasonable to speak of George Bushs Iraq. The President himself likes to refer to that country as the central front [or theater] in our fight against terrorism and the recent National Intelligence Estimate (NIE), a small part of which was finally released by the President, confirms that Iraq is now just that -- a literal motor for the creation of terrorism. So what exactly does George Bushs Iraq look like? A surprising amount of information has appeared in the press recently, but in scattershot form. Here are four questions that bring some of it together, offering a grim snapshot of Bushs Iraq. How many freelance militias are there in Baghdad?

BAGHDAD - Rania was 16 years old when officials raped her during Saddam Husseins 1991 crackdown in Iraqs Shia south. "My bothers were sentenced to death, and the price to stop this was to offer my body," she says.. Cast out for bringing shame to her family, Rania ran away to Baghdad and soon fell into living and working in Baghdads red light district.. Prostitution and sex trafficking are epidemic in Iraq, where the violence of military occupation and sectarian strife have smashed national institutions, impoverished the population and torn apart families and neighborhoods. Over 100,000 civilians have been killed and an estimated 4.4 million Iraqis displaced since 2003.. "Wars and conflicts, wherever they are fought, invariably usher in sickeningly high level of violence against women and girls," Amnesty International states.. Rania worked her way up as a sex traffickers deputy, collecting money from clients. "If I had four girls, and about 200 clients a day - it could be about 50 clients ...
President Clinton signs Presidential Decision Directive (PDD) 99-13 designating seven Iraqi opposition groups as being eligible to receive US federal funds under the 1998 Iraq Liberation Act (see October 31, 1998).

The seven groups include the Iraqi National Accord, the Iraqi National Congress, the Islamic Movement of Iraqi Kurdistan, the Kurdistan Democratic Party, the Movement for Constitutional Monarchy, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, and the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq ...
Although Iraqs roads are much more developed than Afghanistans, Gardiner anticipates that the war and subsequent U.S. occupation of the nation will strain Iraqs transportation infrastructure. Targeting roads and bridges during the war could seriously impede the delivery of humanitarian aid, an issue faced in Afghanistan (ITP, Jan. 9, p1).. Compounding the problem are reports that the Defense Intelligence Agency has concluded Iraq may have put biological weapons laboratories on trains. "So you would expect that the target will be trains," Gardiner said.. Targeting becomes even more challenging considering the anticipated movement of millions of displaced Iraqi civilians -- perhaps along the very same corridors in which bombing is taking place. Fear of chemical weapons runs high among Kurds in northern Iraq, an estimated 5,000 of whom perished in such an Iraqi attack in Halabja in March 1988.. Saddam also reportedly used brutal conventional attacks to suppress a rebellion in southern Iraq after ...
Human Rights Watch called on Iraqs government to act urgently to rein in militia abuses, punish the perpetrators, and stop a new resurgence of violence that threatens all Iraqis safety. The 67-page report, "They Want Us Exterminated: Murder, Torture, Sexual Orientation and Gender in Iraq," documents a wide-reaching campaign of extrajudicial executions, kidnappings, and torture of gay men that began in early 2009. The killings began in the vast Baghdad neighborhood of Sadr City, a stronghold of Moqtada al-Sadrs Mahdi Army militia, and spread to many cities across Iraq. Mahdi Army spokesmen have promoted fears about the "third sex" and the "feminization" of Iraq men, and suggested that militia action was the remedy. Some people told Human Rights Watch that Iraqi security forces have colluded and joined in the killing. "Iraqs leaders are supposed to defend all Iraqis, not abandon them to armed agents of hate," said Scott Long, director of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Rights ...

We studied the physical, chemical, and microbiological factors that influence drinking water quality processed from River Tigris, and of the three main drinking water purification stations located at different parts of Tigris River, along with evaluation of drinking water of Al-Shula region in Baghdad city. Water samples were taken monthly from December 2009 to September 2010. Physical and chemical analyses of water included determination of temperature, pH, turbidity, electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids, salinity, dissolved oxygen, and biological oxygen demand. The results of water before and after purification indicated values within the international allowable levels. Microbial analyses included estimation of the number of total viable microbial counts, total coliform, total fecal |i|E. coli|/i| and |i|Pseudomonas aeruginosa|/i|, and other pathogenic bacteria that might be present in the water of the three stations and of the Tigris River, and also the tap water from Al-Shula houses.

We were recently in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, also the scene of recent demonstrations, to assess the political climate. Our conclusion is that a stable, federal and democratic Iraq, allied with the United States, cannot be taken for granted - especially now. The US should consider a five-part, post-combat strategy for Iraq that places greater emphasis on governance and reform, redefines the security relationship, more effectively incorporates the Kurdistan region in its planning, resolves the dispute over hydrocarbons, and integrates Iraq into a regional security structure ...
Iraq and the United Nations reached an agreement for Baghdad to resume selling oil. However, traders shrugged off the accord, which was expected, and bid crude-oil prices higher amid a consensus that Iraqs estimated 700,000 barrels a day will have little effect in the world market. Under the deal, which spawned celebrations in the streets of Baghdad, Iraq must use the proceeds of the limited sales for expenses such as humanitarian aid.

The most convincing evidence that the surge isnt working, in terms of restoring security to Baghdad and central Iraq, is that we have 3.2-million Iraqi refugees - thats about one in nine Iraqis - whove fled to Jordan or Syria or within Iraq. Living in appalling conditions, money running out, poor health. Ive been to refugee camps where theres no fresh water, where cholera is beginning. And they dont go home! These are the best judges of what the real security situation is in Iraq - not Senator McCain, not me. But these people who if they felt they could go back to their homes in some security, if they and their children could be safe, theyd do it tomorrow. But theyre not because they know its not true; they know its as dangerous as it ever was. And thats really what everybody should remember when theyre asked: how is the surge doing, or for an optimistic moment they think things are getting better in Iraq ...
Since 1980, the foreign relations of Iraq were influenced by a number of controversial decisions by the Saddam Hussein administration. Hussein had good relations with the Soviet Union and a number of western countries such as France and Germany, who provided him with advanced weapons systems. He also developed a tenuous relation with the United States, who supported him during the Iran-Iraq war. However, the Invasion of Kuwait that triggered the Gulf War brutally changed Iraqs relations with the Arab World and the West. Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Syria and others were among the countries that supported Kuwait in the UN coalition. After the Hussein administration was toppled by the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the governments that succeeded it have now tried to establish relations with various nations. Iraqs relations with the Arab world have been extremely varied. Relations between Iraq and Egypt violently ruptured in 1977, when the two nations broke relations with each other following Iraqs criticism of ...

by John Feffer. In the initial aftermath of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, looters swept through the National Museum in Baghdad and carted off 15,000 items of incalculable value. Some of these items were destroyed in the attempt to spirit them away. Some disappeared into the vortex of the underground art market. Only half of the items were eventually recovered.. In February 2015, after a dozen years in limbo, Iraqs National Museum reopened. But it was a bittersweet reopening, and not only because of the thousands of missing treasures. That February, Islamic State (ISIS or IS) militants recorded themselves smashing priceless objects in the central museum in Mosul, a city in northern Iraq that IS had occupied since June 2014. U.S. troops had largely left the country, and Washington had declared the war over. But the destruction of Iraq-its heritage and its people-was still ongoing.. Michael Rakowitz is involved in a massive reclamation project. Since 2007, in a project called The invisible enemy ...

In January 2003, United Nations weapons inspectors reported that they had found no indication that Iraq possessed nuclear weapons or an active program. Some former UNSCOM inspectors disagree about whether the United States could know for certain whether or not Iraq had renewed production of weapons of mass destruction. Robert Gallucci said, "If Iraq had [uranium or plutonium], a fair assessment would be they could fabricate a nuclear weapon, and theres no reason for us to assume wed find out if they had." Similarly, former inspector Jonathan Tucker said, "Nobody really knows what Iraq has. You really cant tell from a satellite image whats going on inside a factory." However, Hans Blix said in late January 2003 that Iraq had "not genuinely accepted UN resolutions demanding that it disarm."[74] He claimed there were some materials which had not been accounted for. Since sites had been found which evidenced the destruction of chemical weaponry, UNSCOM was actively working with Iraq on methods ...
