About this blog

I started this blog to express what I sense about the highs and lows of the oil realm, while cautiously analysing historical data, taking into account the geo-political development at the time of recording them.

Will Iraq be back to square one with increasing violence?

The twin suicide bombings in Baghdad, the Iraqi capital, once again shows the vulnerability of the oil-rich nation in a perpetually volatile region, especially when the West started gradually pulling out its troops. Although Iraqi leadership talks with pride about the country being free from foreign interference, the situation on the ground is far from being conducive for it – judging by the daily protests by the people over corruption, mismanagement, lack of basic care and of course, deter
