Phantom809: Kue911 – are you tracking the RV? How close are we?

Kue911: I think it is close. The news we get out of Iraq in always behind.

OldCrow: I think the RV will happen when Iraq and the world organizations are ready. Not before. We do not know the timetable. And no “guru” elements do either. It will happen because it must so that Iraq can come back onto the world stage. Relax and live your lives. Take care of your family, your jobs, yourself. Be confident that this will indeed eventually happen.

Dinera: I think Iraq is planned to go when the rest does and that’s why things are delayed with Iraq. When it’s time it will go! That’s all there is to it!

Harambe:  Bloomberg: Zimbabwe Gets Loan for $1.7 Billion AFDB, World Bank Arrears

Zimbabwe has secured a syndicated loan put together by the African Export-Import Bank that will enable it to clear $1.7 billion of arrears with the World Bank and African Development Bank.

The funds will allow the southern African nation to settle $1.1 billion it owes in interest and penalties and some principal debt to the World Bank and $601 million to the AFDB, Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa said.

“It should reduce our country-risk profile and also make us eligible for access to soft windows of those institutions — we need new inflows,” Chinamasa said in an interview in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital. “It also opens up to other institutions to do business with us, also make us able to access international capital.”

Baghdad – Journal News

“The joint Iraqi forces are engaged in the battle to eliminate the last blockading units beyond the borders of the old city,” the security expert and researcher Hisham al-Hashemi said Wednesday. “All that is occupied by Mosul is less than 14 km2,” he said.

Hashemi said on his Facebook site that “the security forces stormed the neighborhood of agrarian reform and is considered one of the difficult foci where it is located in a mosque.”

“Kid’s suicide operations and snipers have become weak, and many fighters have fled to Najjar and Rifa’i districts, and they have been stationed in fragile areas.”

“The organization still advocates women and children to take shelter as human shields,” he said.

“The Yanuyu Operations Command announced on Tuesday the liberation of the northern industrial zone and the July 30 neighborhood on the right side of Mosul.”   link
