Canada “Key Regional Player” In Iraq’s Growth
So here’s the deal, I’m a Canadian, I’ve been invested in and following the dinar for almost 9 years and today I get to write about Canada’s first Ministry visit to Iraq in 27 years. Why is this important you might ask?
First of all you should know is that Canada is the #1 trading partner of the United States of America. Second of all the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a very conservative politician (whom I like and voted for) turned his nose up to the invitation to participate in the 2003 Bush Administration invasion of the Saddam era Iraq.
Why didn’t Canada participate in the War? I’m not sure why but I know Harper saved the Canadian economy a wack load of money in the process, that I do know. Mr Harper was also well aware that United States and Britain would be enough to do a number on Baghdad. I think it’s fair to say that the coalition forces did a number on Iraq, and I’m all for that too.
Stephen Harper is a cool guy, he gave side arms to Canadian border officers for the first time which was very well needed. Anyway this is not about Canadian politics as much as it’s about Iraq Canadian politics and what type of impact can be expected. Judging by the official photos released of the high profile secret meetings of Canadian and Iraqi officials with each countries mini flag sitting on the big political table a critic could spew about Canada’s physical presence in Iraq as being all about pomp and pageantry. A bit of a show so to speak, the next best thing to having the Queen show up in Fallujah Iraq wearing a bullet proof vest and a beautiful crown made of gold plated 9mm parabellum shells created just for the occasion. Why did 2 of Canada’s top ranking Ministers really visit Iraq?
John Baird who is the Minister of Foreign Affrairs offered $13 million to the country of Jordan to help pay for Syrian refugees entering Jordan. Canada’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs is the Federal office that approves and issues permits to legally import machines into Canada. So what’s this guy doing for Iraq? Let’s take it from the cows mouth shall we….
“Today’s opening is a historic milestone in Canadian relations with Iraq and comes at a pivotal moment,” Baird said. “Ten years after the Iraqi intervention, Iraq is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, despite deep and lingering sectarian tensions”
John Baird’s surprise visit to Iraq occurred just after his visit to Jordan. International security issues as well as a vision of Middle Eastern peace were discussed. Canadian Immigration Minister Jason Kenney also shown up in Baghdad in early march unannounced.
Canada’s help in implementation of social and humanitarian management systems in exchange for cheaper oil should be some of the deals to be expected with these diplomatic missions.
