Iraq: American Troops Spent the Blood, China & Russia Got the Oil
-- Support The Loftus Party via our Patreon account! --
Fifteen years after the start of the Iraq War, and untold amounts of American treasure and blood, and China and Russia appear to be reaping Iraqi oil. This is in stark contrast to the lie that journalists, Democrats, and other progressives’ spread about the U.S. killing Iraqis in order to get their oil. This subversion has never been addressed and it doesn’t even seem to concern many people.
On Oct. 10, The Daily Caller published “After Billions Spent Rebuilding Iraq, Russia And China Are Gaining Ground There.” The article details how China and Russia, two of America’s biggest, foreign national security threats, have profited from the Iraq War.
. . . Russia’s arms sales and oil acquisitions over the past several years have made a loud statement about Moscow’s growing clout.
But Russia is not the only emerging player in Iraq. China has spent more than a decade building up a major economic presence in the country. Beijing is now Iraq’s largest trading partner and oil customer.
The Ruling Class has allowed journalists and their allies to get away with undermining the Iraq War—a war that has now benefited China and Russia.
This is a reprehensible injustice. Furthermore, the fact that a sizable portion of our own citizenry wants America to lose in wars will continue affecting all our current and future conflicts.
America should address this serious problem. Regrettably, it doesn’t appear it will ever happen.
