  • Yo that oil is ours to decide what to do with fuck faces. I don't understand these politically correct wars. War is not politically correct in itself so why don't we invade and take shit over..

Russia did help USA and NATO in this war indirectly but the main players were America and Europe. Now if you turn your face towards Russia then your future is doomed. The Muslims know the evil shias better than any one for their treachery now Europeans and Americans will learn. This is anticipated that Iranian regime chan More..

  • if you tell americans that they came to iraq for Oil, they would call you monkey, cave living people, stone aged and bal bla bla.

    Now with the names of american companies coming up, they should realise now that they were the one who got treated as monkeys by their government.

  • This is call a game changer scenario. The Israeli Neocons are winning as they used the American solders to invade Iraq and then Installed a Iranian Puppet and now suddenly the Iranian majoosis start showing their real motive. America is controlled by Israel and Iran is their helper. So America and Europe are the losers after spending more than 4 trillion dollars to install these pro Iranian shia puppet in Iraq and in Afghanistan but these whores were all along was russian and Chinas bitch; What More..

    "The Taliban was our enemy , America thought Taliban was their enemy too! If they toppled the Taliban it would serve the interest of Iran"

    Then the alliance targets Iraq !!This time Iranian Ex president Muhammad K More..

  • The difference is that Russia will pay the Baghdad politicians bribes and Exxon can't, by US law. All muslims are crooks.

  • Not about Exxon, about the Iraqi endemic racism. Exxon should leave and let the Iraqis find out for themselves whether freedom or racism works better for them. Guarantee Russia will sell to US. Headline was misleading.

    • @chronecro

      First you should note the source. RT is supposed to be "Russia Today" but has nothing to do with russia today. Exept maybe something russian ruling elite wishes you to believe.

      As for letting Iraq to fall into chaos again: I don't thin that would be a good idea now that they are at least relatively stabile.
