Another example of what Iran business men are willing to do against their brotherly neighbor Iraq. They will steal and swindle any Iraq business for the hard currency of the US Dollar. 500 million dollars in northern Iraq could be of benefit to a lot of Iraqi’s in terms of gaining jobs, food, and electricity projects. They could benefit even more with 2 Billion dollars.
This is already straining relations between the Iranians and the Iraqi’s and with the clamping down of the sanctions against Iran it is not going to get any better.
“Only God knows how much money has been lost,” he said. “It is said only $500 million was taken, but I believe if all the businessmen from Kurdistan speak out, the money might total around $2 billion.”
