Iraq tells Total (TOT) to "freeze or cancel" a contract with Kurdistan or sell its 18.75% stake in the Halfaya oilfield in Iraq.

    And it begins ! Iraq makes first real move to take the oil from the Kurds ! If China allows the Iraqi to renegotiate the Kurds will lose all the oil to the Government and the US will not step again !
