Iraqi oil production inched over the 3 million barrel a day mark in July, according to numbers released Friday by the International Energy Agency. That's 300,000 barrels per day higher than the country's average output in 2011.

IEA said much of July's increase was due to the opening of a new offshore tanker-loading facility in the Persian Gulf.

It's a good start to help rebuild their country. Maybe this time they will pass some of the profits down to its citizens.

Can we take the profits and begin to pay down the U.S. national debt that Bush created from his occupation of Iraq?

It looks like Iran is turning into North Korea. They have produced a 1% upper military / religious class and a 99% poor remainder.

So what does that even tell us? Iraq was in the same spot Iran is 20 years ago...
And is that including Kurdish oil?

We need a pipeline going West or South to export that oil. If we could do that, possibly through Turkey or Saudi Arabia and the Emirates, we could possibly bypass the Gulf, and neutralize Iran's threats.

Sure hope they are investing it wisely and maybe it will stop the foreign aid we are sending to them. My trust level is not super high.

How about Iraq paying us bad? After all, if not for us and all allies they'd still be under Saddam's control. The Iragis used us and now it's time they pay up.

Will this have some impact on end users price for Gas? It won't at this stage but have when production will drop as an excuse for gas price rise.
