Exxon carries out major evacuation from Iraq: Oil official
« on: June 18, 2014, 12:21:15 PM »


ExxonMobil has carried out a "major evacuation,'' and BP had evacuated 20 percent of its staff, the head of Iraq's state-run South Oil Company said Wednesday.
Dhiya Jaffar also said ENI, Schlumberger, Weatherford and Baker Hughes had no plans to evacuate staff from Iraq following the lightning advance of Sunni militants through the country. The companies, which are based in southern Iraq where the government is still in firm control, were not immediately available for comment.

"This message is not satisfactory for us. We are not convinced the work should not be done remotely. They should be here on the ground,'' Jaffar told Reuters.

only 20%? wtf.. one instant, is all it takes for the workers and fascilitys to be in grave danger. now if it was BP, I mite have pause to suggest staying. perhaps they should evac all workers and leave the senior staff to run the apparatus'
of all the things I,ve lost.. I miss my mind, the most

It very much looks as if Iraq is moving into a sectarian civil war. Saudi Arabia is already involved and Iran is on the verge of jumping in. ALL western countries and interests should stay away and let them sort it out for themselves.

The problem is we haven't and probably won't stay out of it. There was a link to a good  article on Wake Up America about the west's involvement (meddling) in Iraq for decades:


 
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.
