OOTW: I HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT AND GRATITUDE TOWARDS STRUAN STEVENSON…HERE’S A QUOTE FROM A RECENT SPEECH OF HIS
“Mr President, Ladies and Gentlemen, my dear Iraqi brothers and sisters, we were greatly encouraged when Haider al-Abadi became Prime Minister and spoke of the need for reforms. But we need to see these reforms in action. I am very concerned about the fate of Iraq.
Daesh has to be defeated but we have to make sure that the Iranian regime does not exploit this conflict to advance its destructive influence. Iran is not part of the solution, it has been a source of the problem in both Iraq and Syria for years.” OOTW: wealthwatch.world/showthr…
chattels: ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The Islamic State group (ISIS) earns $80 million a month from taxing people living under its rule, and from confiscating property, drug smuggling and oil sales, according to a new analysis released Monday by global think tank IHS.
It said that 50 percent of the militant group’s income comes from taxation and confiscation, and around 43 percent from oil, drug smuggling, selling electricity and receiving donations.

chattels: ‹@OOTW› excellent 🙂
OOTW: The former prime minister should have been arrested immediately upon vacating his seat. He should have been indicted, if not by the Iraqi government then by the International Criminal Court. Critics contend that Maliki is not only guilty of mismanagement and corruption, and the disappearance of 500 billion dollars, under his rule, but that he is also guilty of human rights abuses, owing to his support of Shi’ite militias and his contribution to attacks against enemies of the Iranian regime inside his country.
Indeed, the case against Maliki surely continues to grow. Despite technically being out of government, he continues to wield considerable influence and to use his stolen money for the funding of a private army.
It is already clear that Maliki either willfully ignored or personally ordered six attacks on the Iranian dissident communities of Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty, members of the People’s Mojahdein Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) during his term in office.
And it may yet also become clear that his sectarian forces had a role in the seventh, which took place just at the end of October and brought the total death toll to 140. The plight of the 2,200 asylum-seekers at Camp Liberty goes to show that mere awareness of the persistent instability in the Middle East is doing nothing to alleviate it.
Even in the midst of public advocacy on those people’s behalf from senior American and European policymakers, the Iraqi government and the Iran-backed militias have consistently stepped up their repression of the camp. Even after the latest attack, the residents have been barred from receiving shipments of food, medical equipment, and materials for rebuilding.
OOTW: These and other activities in the region will almost certainly continue unabated as long as the people who are most responsible for them face no consequences for their actions.
If Camp Liberty is to be protected, if ISIS is to be defeated, and if sectarian conflict in general is to be undermined, Nouri al-Maliki must be held to account.
This would at once address several recent problems in Western nations’ Middle East policies. It would make an example of Maliki in the face of other tyrants and sectarian forces. It would help to eliminate his lingering destructive influence.
And it would serve as a first step toward a set of policies that deal more appropriately and more harshly with other contributors to the problems of the region, including Syria’s Assad and Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. OOTW: wealthwatch.world/showthr…
chattels: ” Despite technically being out of government, he continues to wield considerable influence and to use his stolen money for the funding of a private army.”
chattels: ” GONE, DONE AND / OR TOAST ” ?, eh ?
chattels: I doubt that Mr. Maliki has any favorable influence upon Mr. Stevenson, so presumably the foregoing ” news ” is credible according to some critics of the news.
chattels: 12-7-2015 Intel/Newshound Guru tman23 Certainly Iraq must make changes… But with the kidnappings etc…etc… You have to ask yourself…How fast can they open a market economy and build infrastructure without foreign labor?
Because right now skilled foreign workers are not going to flock to Iraq. Abadi needs to deliver something big…bigger then austerity and broken promises. Quite frankly he needs to pull a rabbit out of his arse at this point.
chattels: Sounds like ” magic ” to me though, ……………………………

chattels: ” ………… granting their women complete emancipation: Everything from equal labour and wage rights to that of their male counterparts to having an equal say in a court of law (unlike in some Islamic countries where under the law a man’s word is worth that of two women) along with equal inheritance rights. ”
chattels: ” Iraq’s Kurdish region recently welcomed the ancestors of Kurdish Jews who had been deported, following the foundation of the State of Israel, by the central government in Baghdad about 70 years ago and has made a point of recognizing and valuing their contributions to that region. ”
chattels: ” Similarly Shia Muslims in Kurdistan, while a minority there as opposed to the rest of Iraq, can freely mark the Day of Ashura in accordance with their sects beliefs (one of the differences between the Sunni and Shia beliefs about the early history of Islam stems from conflicting beliefs over what that date represents and how it should be remembered which has led to many disagreements and violent sectarian clashes in places) without fear that the government or the wider society will attempt to suppress them. ”
chattels: ” Civilization and freedom do not always triumph over savagery and tyranny by their superior merit alone. That’s an overly simplistic and romanticized, as well as often ahistorical, fallacy. However in the case of the Kurds against ISIS civilization and freedom are winning the day. Which is the fundamental reason the Kurds should be supported unwaveringly until the very end. ”

chattels: MP Majda al-Tamimi describes the 2016 budget as “delusional and unrealistic” 06/12/2015 15:46 BAGHDAD / National Iraqi News Agency / nina / labeled a member of the parliamentary finance committee Majida al-Tamimi budget in 2016 as “bogus and unrealistic”, proposed steps to reduce the shortfall in them.

and the development of orderly and uncluttered collection system to reduce the money going into the pockets of corrupt , in addition to reducing spending because there are a lot of unjustified expenses and exaggerated “.
chattels: ” ……….. Cancel auction currency at the central bank so that import through the credits, ……… ”
chattels: bogus, delusional and unrealistic, ………………….. sounds like my assessment of the dinar pundit predictions
chattels: “The statement said that the Iraqi Central Bank to continue buying and selling dollars at 1166 dinars, noting The selling price of remittances in 1187 dinars to the dollar, including the commission and the Central Bank of 21 dinars per dollar, with total cash sales price of 1190 dinars to the dollar against the dollar, including the commission of the Central Bank of $ 24 dinars per dollar. www.ninanews.com/News_Det…
chattels: 1190 x’s 2 % is 23.8
chattels: 1190 + 23.8 = 1113.8

chattels: So it appears that the 2% is variance is being met.
chattels: The text is somewhat cryptic though. Do the numbers match ?
chattels: Remittance sales is a different number from dollar against dollar
chattels: 1187 x’s 2% = 23.74
chattels: 1187 + 23.74 = 1210.74
Stash: What u think?
