chattels: MOSUL, Iraq – Iraqi forces are fighting tooth and nail to recapture the last remaining 600 square meters of ISIS ground near the historic al-Nuri mosque where Rudaw cameras captured on Friday close-up footage of rubble from the demolition of the site by the radical group earlier this month.
chattels: “The remaining area does not exceed 600 [square] meters,” al-Saadi added.
chattels: The advances made against ISIS in the last eight months is in sharp contrast to the summer in 2014 when the extremist was in control of about 40 % of the Iraqi territories. Iraqi forces and Kurdish Peshmerga launched a joint offensive to drive out ISIS from Mosul on October 17, backed by the US-led global coalition.
Brow: 600 meters is only 1968 square ft
chattels: The Iraqi forces have completed the first phase of the Old City battle, dividing the district in two and taking the western section. Green = liberated, Red = contested, Gold = IS control (Ninewa Media Center) There were more advances in the Old City district of west Mosul by the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF).
The Federal Police seized Hkatoniya and Katunya in the center and were heading towards Farouq Street, an area that was said to be freed before, while the army’s 16th Division took Hadra al-Sadaa and Ahmadiya in the north.
The Iraqi forces (ISF) were also pushing towards the south at Bab al-Bawab, Arjkhana, Bab al-Jadid, and Bab al-Lakash, and east into Farouq 2. Federal Police Chief General Raed Shakir Jawadat claimed that 70% of the Old City was now under government control. The ISF have completed the first part of its strategy for the district.
The north to south thrust has been accomplished now giving the government forces control of most of the western half of the district. The final move is from west to east to reach the Tigris and again divide the Old City in two.
Units are also moving along the northern and southern perimeter to finish off the pincer move. That will divide the defenders into smaller, and more manageable groups to destroy.
txbrand: has anyone heard about Yellow stone ? this one guy is saying 800 earthquakes around it
Brow: Less than 5 acre of land

chattels: ” …………… in the event of absences more than a third of the sessions will activate the rules of procedure to end the membership. ”
Blossom7454: I am blessed
chattels: Jubouri talked about attendance in the last couple of sessions. Will there be ” bite to the bark ” this term ?
chattels: @Blossom7454 Very glad to know of your good standing.
Blossom7454: It’s been a long haul but I believe we are coming to a final end at least I pray so.
chattels: @Blossom7454 Certainly I hope that you are correct, but I maintain a conservative perspective on the imminence of our liquidity event.
chattels: @Blossom7454 My sense is that there is more reason(s) for it not to happen in the nearer term.
Blossom7454: That’s my Chattels
chattels: @Blossom7454 Nothing new under the sun in that, eh ?
Blossom7454: Are they in the process of deleting the zeros?…yup lol
chattels: @Blossom7454 Whatever that means, eh ?
chattels: @Blossom7454 Of course we know what some say it means and what we would like it to mean, but until it happens no one can be absolutely certain.
Blossom7454: Well saw on Dinar guru, Frank says: Alak has deleted zeros one at a time. An they r going to delete the last one in July.
chattels: @Blossom7454 He also likens the banking reform project in Iraq to the Kuwaiti currency phenomena, so how much of a clue could he have ?
chattels: @ElmerFudd I am not sure about recent actions.
chattels: @ElmerFudd Heard Tman was banned.
chattels: @ElmerFudd If there is a link then then it is likely ” real ” news, but what that news means if anything has always been the question.
chattels: @ElmerFudd Iraqis talk alot and do little.
Blossom7454: @ElmerFudd I always thought Cookie was down to earth. An highly intelligent
chattels: @ElmerFudd Iraqi news, like our news, has preferred narratives, bias and prejudice.
BREW: I THINK THE ONLY THING RIGHT NOW IN IRAQ, IS MOSUL HAS ALMOST BEEN TAKEN BACK, THAT IS NATIONAL NEWS, NOT GURU NEWS, ALL THE GURUS THINK THAT WHEN MOSUL IS TAKEN BACK, IT WILL R/V. (NOT)
ElmerFudd: But the UN, IMF and WB aren’t going to tolerate bias and prejudice in RV news, they want action.
chattels: @ElmerFudd Watching for progress by the Iraqi Parliament is like watching paint dry.
chattels: @Blossom7454 Bye
chattels: @BREW Agreed.
ElmerFudd: But we really don’t need parliament to do anything any more. Just pay off Kuwait.
chattels: @BREW Ousting DAESH from Mosul is a ” big deal “, but it does not equate to instant security in Iraq.
BREW: @ElmerFudd THOUGHT THEY PAID THEM 5 YEARS AGO
ElmerFudd: Seems like there’s one last payment to make.
chattels: @BREW Securing Hawija, Anbar province and the Syrian border will require much effort and sacrifice
BREW: @chattels YES IT WILL
ElmerFudd: probably not as much as Mosul.
chattels: @BREW You are correct as I recall my reading on the subject.
BREW: @chattels , OR SO IT WAS SAID AT THAT TIME, BUT THE MOST OF THAT WAS PUT OUT BY THE GURU’S.
chattels: @ElmerFudd And there is the matter of permanent security and peace keeping post restoration of the displaced.
chattels: @BREW There is ” real ” news supporting the postponement of the last payment to Kuwait.
ElmerFudd: Boy, Maliki sure screwed up a lot of things.
ElmerFudd: Yeah, they should RV, then pay them back.
BREW: @ElmerFudd SURPRIZED SOME ONE HAS NOT KILLED HIM, OR YOU WOULD THINK.
ElmerFudd: You would think.
ElmerFudd: But would his murder cause some more instability?
BREW: @ElmerFudd JUST ME, BUT I THINK NOT.
chattels: Why worry about Mr. Maliki, BGG told us that he was was ” GONE / DONE ” a year ago ? 🙂
BREW: @chattels IT WAS ALSO SAID, HE WAS GONE 3 YEARS AGO., LIKE A FLEA ON A DOG I GUESS.
chattels: Time for Tucker Carlson, Laterz all.
BREW: @chattels SEE YA
ElmerFudd: I’m surprised that someone hasn’t sued the CBI for false advertising regarding the deletion of the zeroes.
BREW: @ElmerFudd TRUE, OR IS THAT A FRONT.
ElmerFudd: Well, a lot of big international corporations want to make money on Iraq, how many could have lost money in contracts with the CBI screwing around with dates for the RV?
BREW: @ElmerFudd TRUE.
ElmerFudd: Watching paint dry won’t cut it any more, not if they want to reintegrate with the rest of the world.
BREW: @ElmerFudd MAYBE ONE DAY, THERE GOVERMENT IS PRETTY MUCH LIKE OURS.
ElmerFudd: But at least your government would make hasty moves to strengthen the dollar if positions were reversed.
BREW: @ElmerFudd TRUE
txbrand: only in Texas..lo
[pm]Zig: Vic (Gatekeepers) posted last night: ” Vic1TGK: Well then Good Night or for many Good morning… Should hear Abadi talking about the complete liberalization of Mosul… I had mentioned on my last two calls that June 30th would be an extremely important day for Iraq…
Chapter Seven will also be resolved and most probably the Khalifat of Daaesh and Isil / ISIS the JV team will no longer be lead by point guard Baghdadi… It does seem as if the Russian Airstrike did actually Kill him… So, we shall see said the blind man too his deaf dog!..
Good Night and God Bless America, Our President all our Armed Forces and Policemen and Women, our Firemen and women and all of the People of the United States of America! See you some time soon.”

txbrand: Federal prosecutors, however, have painted the Alavi Foundation as an illegal funding machine for Iran, siphoning money from the U.S., sometimes to fund terrorist attacks.
