International oil community concerned about violence … in Iraq

Same problem, different wardrobe

An article on violence in Iraq, a country of similar size to Venezuela, courtesy of OilPrice.com. The money quote:

“A wave of violence has swept parts of Iraq at the start of 2014 as the central government fights back against Al-Qaeda aligned militants in Anbar Province… Over 7,800 civilians were killed in Iraq in 2013, the bloodiest year over the past five.”

Imagine that, almost eight thousand civilians. A third of our murders, and yet the international community says absolutely nothing about the violence in Venezuela.

Shame on them.
