I don't think he understands the Ottoman history of the land, the Mongol invasions, nor the Islamic Golden Age either. He probably celebrates the Crusades, tho I can't claim they really affected what is now called Iraq directly.
He appears to be one of the "They've [Middle-Easterners... vaguely

I can tell he knows nothing (John Snow)
of the post-Ottoman British occupation up to the end of WWII when the relative decline of the British empire enabled the US to become established as Iraq's colonial master. But even that is just one layer of the Iraqi Colonial Onion. When OPEC and the oil supply are analyzed in these contexts the conclusion is obvious if you aren't partisan.
Not saying anyone has to approach Iraq from a non-partisan point-of-view, but at some point when you can't own basic history or don't even know it relative to the opinion you insist is valid, you [Not you mi amigo Qatz, the user in question]
come across as another partisan drone who doesn't understand how to ruthlessly pursue their own best interests as the "colonial powers" [wealthy nation-driving men] do.
Control of Iraq in turn means more control over OPEC in an era when US influence over OPEC's Overlord in Saudi Arabia has waned and Iran has been entrenched as an opposition force to Western Oil Markets.
