    WMD IN KURDISTAN

    Could it be the Kurds have finally had enough of their land being the place where the world comes to fight for oil?

    The Kurdistan Regional Government is inviting bids for the opportunity to do a study on the feasibility of building wind energy installations in the 3 Kurdish provinces.

    The Kurds are sophisticated people, knowledgeable in the ways of the energy world and anxious to go to work build a better tomorrow.

    They are also sharp businesspeople. From the announcement of bidding for the feasibility study: “All bids must be accompanied by a bid security of 100,000,000 (one hundred million) Iraqi Dinars [$84,206] or an equivalent amount in a freely convertible currency consigned in any official bank in the Kurdistan Region.”

    For Iraq and the region, it would be a new kind of WMD: Wind as a Major Development.
