Are you kidding?
The middle east includes:
Saudi Arabia: 14% of the world's oil.
Iran: 3% of the World`s Oil
UAE: 3% of the World`s Oil
Kuwait: 3% of the World`s Oil

Or if we`re doing total proven reserves:
Saudi: 20% world reserves.
Iran: 10% world reserves.
Kuwait: 8% of world reserves.
UAE: 7% of world reserves.
Not to mention the other 11 countries in the Middle East, or the other 10 on top of that in "Greater Middle East" if your graph includes that.

Oil exports via the CIA. Iraq produces ~2% as stated earlier.

Oil reserves via the CIA. Iraq admittedly contains ~8% of the world reserves.

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?!?! Its a H.O.A. community. I live in a HOA community and they have towed my car for parking overnight, taken my trashcans for leaving them out overnight, and removed my christmast decorations.

> Iraq provides the world with approx 2% of it's oil

I`m sure Davy could give us accurate figures since finding oil is his job, but this would tend to indicate you`re completely wrong:

That is just outright terrible. My father has been in Iraq for the past 7 months, he doesn't come back for 5 more. I don`t understand how someone could be so anal as to take down welcome home signs? I would have made new ones....tacky ones....with glitter.
