BobS: 1/13/2018 0:00 Thamer Alheims Under Security Council resolution 2390 in Iraq 08/12/2017 completed all obligations regarding the exit from Chapter VII of the UN Charter and this decision will enable us to open letters of credit to meet the real demand for consumer materials or production according to the actual need.
Perhaps this is done which is proud of our government is one of the successes that we hope that we invest in our economy within the benefits of leaving the Chapter VII we have $ 3 billion be transferred to the government under resolution 2335 / in 2017.
The other benefits depend first and foremost on the parties concerned, to be practical raise the positive restriction through the return of confidence in Iraqi banks (Rafidain and Rasheed) after it froze government imports in the past three decades.
Documentary long – standing assistance offered in our country; but there are those who say that the Rafidain Bank and Rasheed have not kept pace with modern technology because instructed holistic in nature, according to my information there is a project for the restructuring of Iraq in line with the re – confidence of the bank and Trchigah to work according to the new philosophy of the state. 

​BobS: The two banks Pat are sold in the practice of smart card technology for retirees and direct them in the world of public employment; returns things to normal restore confidence internationally our system banking and a continuation of the relationship Rafidain and Rasheed citizens Ooualemozv, will be after the re Hiklthma trustees of the public money and ways to invest.

chattels: Iraq’s Abadi in high-stakes plan to rein in Iranian-backed militias
chattels: BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Under pressure from allies in the West, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is staking his career on reining in the Shi‘ite militias that helped him defeat Islamic State.
chattels: Abadi’s plan envisages taking back the militias’ heavy weapons and cutting their strength by half, according to military and intelligence sources. The army is already taking an inventory of PMF weaponry, such as the armored vehicles and tanks the government gave them to fight Islamic State.

Next, Abadi will order his military and police commanders to take back those heavy weapons under the pretext of repairing them. The defense ministry will then remove over-age or physically unfit fighters, two military sources said.
chattels: Lawmakers close to Abadi and one of his political advisers say he is coming under “tremendous pressure” from the West and Sunni regional allies to dissolve the PMF now that Islamic State, or Daesh, is no longer a major threat.

“Prime Minister Abadi is getting messages from allies in the war against Daesh encouraging him to dismantle the PMF as a condition to keeping their support flowing in future,” the adviser said on condition of anonymity.
chattels: In any case Abadi does not trust the Iranians, whose militia allies act like a state within a state, said a Shi‘ite lawmaker close to the prime minister. “Abadi sees the support of the West, the United States and regional Arab states as indispensable in making Iraq more stable in future,” the lawmaker said.
chattels: Security sources and analysts say any attempt by Abadi to muzzle the PMF could invite a backlash from Shi‘ites, who expect the militias to protect them in the event of renewed sectarian conflict in Iraq. Any backlash could lead to the election of an alliance of Iranian-backed political parties to enough seats in parliament to end Abadi’s bid for a second term.
chattels: To counter the PMF’s popularity, Abadi has turned to the cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, who once led an armed rebellion against U.S. occupation forces and was named the most dangerous man in Iraq by the Pentagon.

The pair held a secret meeting in the holy Shi‘ite city of Karbala on Nov. 11 to discuss Sadr helping the government disarm the militias, according to aides for both men who attended the meeting. Sadr sees the militias as a threat to his role as a kingmaker in Iraq’s turbulent politics.
chattels: Sources close to Sadr said he also promised to persuade Sistani to support Abadi’s plans to restrain the militias. That could give Abadi an edge over the militias, which comprise more than 66 groups, over 40 of which are backed by Iran, according to security sources and analysts.

​… Iraqi Army has prepared 5 year reform plan. Examining rank structure, positions & divisions. Calls for greater international support in arming & equipping (while Iraqi Parliament wants US forces out of Iraq). NATO to assist with border security.
chattels: ” Iraqi Parliament wants US forces out of Iraq.”
chattels: David M. Witty ‏ @DavidMWitty1 17h17 hours ago More UN warns there are still small pockets of ISIS in Iraq in areas around Talafar, Qaim, Sharqat, Hawija & Toz.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More Continuing this thread from earlier today – Iraqi TV channels are now reporting the coalitions. I’m going to repeat here what I’m hearing from watching these channels. So bear in mind these are *initial* reports.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More Sources also conflict on what Abadi’s coalition will be called – most say “Victory Bloc”, others “Fatah” (“Conquest”).
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More And here is this just out, claiming that Abadi is asking IHEC to pull the Dawa Party out of State of Law. If true, sounds like an effort at party coup v. Maliki. …
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More There isn’t going to be much of the SLC left as it has been clear for a while that Badr was going its own way. Losing Abadi would just leave Maliki heading a “rump State of Law.”
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More So the news is that Abadi will indeed head a coalition referred to as “Victory Bloc” or something like that. He & Maliki appear to have reached an agreement of some kind allowing Abadi to head Dawa’s list. This is still a bit vague at this moment.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More Badr’s Hadi al-Ameri is heading a competing list – v. Maliki & Abadi – of Hashd political wings called “Fatah.” Muqtada al-Sadr has blessed a new coalition called “Thairun” (Revolutionaries) of which his “Istiqama” party will be the core.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More The largest Sunni bloc is a triumvirate of Salim al-Jiburi – Iyad Allawi – Salih al-Mutlak. With this Jiburi completes his transformation into a secular centralist. This will likely be the largest pro-Baghdad Sunni bloc.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More A “regionalist” Sunni coalition will be headed by Osama al-Nujayfi & Khamis Khanjar.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More Among the Kurds, there is a three-party alliance including Gorran-Kurdistani Islamic Group – Barham Salih.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More Along with these big names, bear in mind they all have small parties hanging along with them. Ammar al-Hakim’s Hikma is taking an approach similar to Sadr – the party is the core, but add non-Shia for a “cross-sectarian” (abira) bloc.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More So in terms of electoral implications, including this is indeed the alignment, the landscape will only be somewhat less fragmented than it appeared a week ago, mainly bc Abadi & Maliki apparently aren’t running v. one another. 

​chattels: Kirk H. Sowell ‏ @UticaRisk Jan 11 More So State of Law lost some of its factions, Badr most importantly, but this “Victory/Nasr Bloc” looks well-positioned for a plurality of the seats from Shia areas. As long as Maliki can swallow his pride (or be forced to behind the scenes), Abadi is well-positioned for 2nd term.
