xyz Corona Destroys The Rat And Cat Trade In China
Shafaq News / “Liu Yankun” was forced to give up raising edible rats after the Chinese government banned the trafficking of some live animals, which are considered the main suspects in the Covid-19 pandemic .
Tens of thousands of breeders of rats, snakes, Asian civets, and other rare animals in China have become without a source of income since Beijing in the spring banned trade and consumption of these wild species.
“I had orders for tens of thousands of yuan,” said Liu Yankun sadly, as he stood in front of empty cages on his farm in central Hunan, where about 800 bamboo rats were waiting for their turn to cook .
This gnarled, badger-like animal has gourmets in the center and south of the country, and its meat has been promoted by Internet celebrities who broadcast their favorite recipes.
In order to establish the farm, Liu (38 years old) allocated 6 rooms from his house to raise these animals, and when the government ban was issued, the district authorities offered him compensation of 75 yuan (10 euros) per kilogram of a rat, which is half the value of his animals in the market, as for snakes. Cobra, the compensation has reached 120 yuan.
But that sum is too little for Liu, who nearly half of his reptiles died of starvation when the inspectors came to count his animals.
Liu, a young producer who refused to give his full name, intends to convert these animals into traditional medicine, but is waiting for the green light from the authorities. LINK

xyz American newspaper: The Trump administration considers Al-Kazimi its best opportunity regarding strategic dialogue https://www.almaalomah.com/2020/08/19/490797/
The American newspaper The Hill considered that the visit of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to the White House today, Thursday, is more than just an important event, indicating that it is a very important strategic event.
“The United States has a wonderful opportunity with Al-Kazemi, and it is much better than it deserves, given the endless display of the mistakes that the United States has committed in Iraq since 2003, after the US disengagement during the past decade,” the report, translated by Al-Maaloumah, stated .
He added, “As head of intelligence, he is ready to fight the resistance factions, and he has already taken a series of steps indicating his readiness to continue those battles and he has the support of the protests, while both Sunnis and Kurds see that he is a technocrat capable of working with them and will treat them fairly.” In the words of the newspaper.
He continued, “This opportunity may be fleeting, as Al-Kazemi was not able to obtain the premiership steadily as a temporary alternative, as the Iraqi president seized the opportunity of unrest following the assassination of General Soleimani to install him as prime minister.”
The report called for “providing support to Kazemi, through direct resources in the form of budget support, in addition to a little long-term assistance in the form of loans, commercial credits, short-term contracts and the like, all at his discretion.”
He explained that “what Al-Kazemi said and demonstrated through his initial actions is that he will do everything in his power with whatever resources are available to him, but without US assistance he will not be able to do much at all. Because the problems of Iraq are very big. ”
The report warned against missing the opportunity to provide support to Kazemi, for this is the third opportunity, and if

xyz The United States has a remarkable opportunity with Kadhimi. He is the best Iraqi prime minister any American could imagine, and far better than we deserve given the endless parade of mistakes the U.S. has made in Iraq since 2003.
As a political commentator, Kadhimi routinely demonstrated unsurpassed insight and understanding of Iraqi politics. As the director of the Iraqi National Intelligence Service, Kadhimi proved himself a superb executive, willing and able to use those talents to fight corruption and Iranian-backed Shi’a militias. Now, as prime minister, he has already taken a series of steps signaling his willingness to continue those battles and start to build an Iraqi government capable of meeting the needs of its people. https://thehill.com/opinion/international/512636-we-need-to-be-creative-in-support-of-iraqi-prime-minister-kadhimi

xyz 8-19-2020 Newshound Guru Adam Montana …there’s some understandable excitement about our man Kazzammie coming to America. Meeting with President Trump. Tomorrow. In my opinion, this does not mean “RV by Friday”.
Iraq does not need “Trump’s approval”. That’s not what is going on here. Whether you like Trump or not, you probably (at least) acknowledge that he has his fingers in a LOT of pies…and you can bet your sweet apples that he has the means, ability, and likely desire to help Iraq move forward. A Kazzammie-Trump meeting is not a small thing.
It’s quite likely the opposite, and this might be the last time they meet before we see a surge in the price of Dinar…tomorrow could be exciting, especially if anyone even mentions “HCL”. We will see! Go Kazzammie. Go Trump. Go HCL. Go Iraq. And GOOOO RRRRVVVVVVVV!!!

Prime Minister of Iraq with partial authority at a summit with U.SBagdad, Aug 19 (Prensa Latina) Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi will have partial authority to adopt agreements during the summit with US President Donald Trump, a legal expert confirmed this Wednesday.
In statements to the Iraqi news agency, the jurist Ali Al-Tamimi said that any of the conclusions of al-Kazemi-Trump meeting will pass through the filter of Parliament.
According to the Iraqi Constitution, only the House can ratify treaties or conventions proposed or signed by the Council of Ministers.
For its approval, it requires the consent of two thirds of the deputies in the case of strategic pacts, on borders, peace or military alliances, said the law expert.
Once accepted by Parliament, which then issues a law, the President of the Republic gives his consent for the value of what has been agreed.
Al-Kazemi arrived in Washington on Tuesday and is scheduled to meet with Trump tomorrow.
