Doodlebug:  So we have the Kurdish “delegation” in Baghdad right now, without Barzani doing last minute dotting of the “i’s” and crossing of the “t’s” and Mahdi’s office is announcing that the Budget will go to Parliament in the coming days. LOL yeah okay… “Tell them what they’ve won, Johnny!” The Citizens have won an agreed upon deal between Baghdand Kurdistan! Come on Salih, make the announcement (Kurdistan/Bahgdad Deal), I know you want to! All IMOO.

Pete2001:  “cant be stopped for any reason”….certainly like that!!

MilitiaMan:  In essence imo this will expose the 2018-2019 (rider) that may have been or was used to keep the 2020 Budget under wraps to date.. And this is all to happen within the coming days.. So they say they need to do it quickly, as there is an existence of financial commitments that can not be stopped, thus, they merely suspended the financial commitments (loans / cotnracts) for the month ending 01/02/2020, as noted in the article Delta posted. – ..imo.. ~ If that is the case then, shut the front door Alice! lol ~imo~  MM

MilitiaMan:  The data sure seems to suggest that many fronts are converging.. All good too. imo..
