Taking Over The Iraqi Farming Industry

Leave a comment

The important information about Iraqi Order 81 is that it was designed to have a major impact on the way farming is done in Iraq. This order prohibits Iraqi farmers from using the methods of agriculture that they have used for centuries. The practice of saving seeds from one year to the next is now illegal in Iraq. Order 81 wages war on Iraqi farmers. They have lost the freedom to choose their own methods of agriculture. The legalese in which the orders are written creates confusion about their exact meaning, but the desired result is obvious. Order 81 prohibits the farmers from using their own seeds, on their own farms, to grow their own crops.

Prior to the U.S. invasion, agriculture in Iraq was flourishing. The Fertile Crescent had developed a system of farming that was the envy of the world. Now, under Occupation, centuries of progress have been destroyed, almost overnight.

What is amazingly ironic about this is the fact that Western preiminence in the world over the past centuries is directly the result of farming techniques and plant strains developed in the Fertile Crescent several millennia B.C.

The Cradle of Civilization and Agriculture is now under attack by its own beneficiaries.
