The home Shia Islam, an independent central bank, the largest gas reserves, and second largest oil reserves in the middle east. These three factors are significant when considering Iran Geo politically.

Kurdistan begins independent oil sales

Kurdistan begin selling oil to Turkey, but not via Iraq.

Kurdistan begin selling oil to Turkey, but not via Iraq.

The firs steps towards a new middle eastern nation are being taken today, with Kurdistan beginning sales of oil to Turkey. The Turks have been paying quite high prices for oil lately, so there is at least one satisfied customer but the economic price is just one part of the cost to consider. Iraq is clearly not happy as they feel it is their oil.  Kurds might argue Iraq only ever existed (and was created) so that the British could get control of oil and have it delivered to the port of Basra.

The geopolitics of oil now have  new factor in the complex equations of diplomacy. If Turkey Joins the EU there will be an oil state on the doorstep of the EU. Could a pipeline from Iran to Europe now be more feasible. Will Kurdish people flood to the newly cemented state?

Just like a new service station opening up in your town or city there are always flow on effect. Everything in the Middle east just got a little more interesting.

Good Luck to the Kurdish people.

Kurds already control a region in Northern Iraq, but may want significant parts of Turkey, part of the border region of Iran and even some of Syria and Armenia.

With access to the oil trade some of these wishes may be fulfilled, but  like any transaction is there a willing seller, and what will be the price?

A legend for the above chart:

Following large drops in oil production economies often go into crisis.

Economic paradigms based on continuing oil production go into crisis,

when it is known the oil is certainly declining and not to recover.

trolling the NSA

 

 If the NSA is funded by the US taxpayer, and they record all of our internet communications, they could at least provide this service to US citizens, for foreign citizens it could go under the international aid budget.
