Hello - Hello - Hello!!
Soonergirlie says():hi BGG
1bobby says to BGG():Doing great. Thanks
SRW says to BGG():Great!!
BGG says):*** NEWS FLASH ***
SRW says to BGG():Bump bump howdy!!
BGG says():It's 3:03 AM in Kurdistan - It is being reported the attack to free Mosul is NOW UNDERWAY...
BGG says():US Spec ops on the ground in a "training role"...
the conversation goes something like this... "watch carefully while I blow this ISIS fighter's head-off..." - there..."now you try..."
daytrader says to BGG():That is outstanding news!!!
Dinar Dave says():EXACTLY...LOL
SRW says to BGG():He he!!
spike says():hoping they can end this soon...enough lives lost
caravaggio says():I'll bet they go through Mosul like a tornado.
BGG says():My hope as well.
BGG says():big conversation going on right now as to who will "occupy" once this is over... the Shia haven't helped their case much in this regard.
OK - let's get this thing started off right.
MrsBGG says():Welcome everyone!! We're glad that you're here tonight This is NewsTime, if you have a question or comment we welcome it. We just ask that you put up a ?, and wait until we ask you to go. It makes it easier on the copiers and readers.
BGG says():Hey gang - I had really planned to take this a much different direction...
however, much of what I was going to talk about you may see on THE BLOG...
(with the exception - of the recent "Delete the 3 Zero's article") that's on the FB group...
I also want to point out - and thank everyone who posts on the Forum, RCookie for the HUGE NEWS dump this afternoon in the Chat Room... and everyone on the FB Side and everywhere on DU who makes this place what it is...
Thank you all!!
With this huge *** News Flash*** we really ought take the time right now to CELEBRATE this BIG NEWS and give it some time to go over it.
but before we get going on that...
my bad - we were going to post the text of the 3 zeros article - I'll get it on THE BLOG later this evening...
I think it opportune to "talk Mosul".
If you have seen our Twitter feed...
The French have MASSIVE artillery batteries pounding ISIS positions.
they have not forgotten what ISIS inspired in Paris... they are STILL PISSED.
also...from our Twitter feed...
"The only permitted flags in #Mosul Battle are the flags of #Iraq and #Kurdistan, no sectarian flags are allowed..."
bit of a nod to the Kurds - hopefully the Shia's will be on their best behavior.
So - I'll open this up for more of a "forum/Q&A" on "everything Mosul" for the evening...
obviously - the biggest News of the night.
"Hearing from #Mosul resident unrelenting air strikes since midnight. #Iraq..."
spike says():SOUNDS LIKE KURDS MAY RECEIVE THERE SHARE OF MOSUL!!
larrykn says():I get to wonder of the timing of all of this, I'm not sure if Obama and the elections have anything to do with this but the timing gets one to wonder
BGG says to larrykn():I am trying very hard to stay away from the politics side of this - so many peeps have a tender side...but there are some REALLY BIG ISSUES in play...
ONE CANDIDATE is on record as having said it was good for the West for there to be a Shia/Sunni conflict - WHO IS THAT DEMENTED??
larrykn says():I think we all know
BGG says to larrykn():McCain was even taped on the Senate floor saying Al-Bagdadi is a "moderate" and a "friend"... (from 2 years ago)... and that is where I will leave it... (so stupidity is not limited to one side or the other... )
BGG says():Comments on Mosul??
wilson6060 says():BGG this is a very big deal for the stability in Iraq does it help to bring about an RV
BGG says():Bret McGurk - "Godspeed to the heroic Iraqi forces, Kurdish #Peshmerga, and #Ninewa volunteers. We are proud to stand with you in this historic operation."
BGG says to wilson6060():BIG - BIG - BIG deal...
Pablo says():Other than Mosul, how much of Iraq is left to be liberated?
BGG says to wilson6060():I really think this is one of the "Core issues" the IMF/WB/UN wanted handled.
wilson6060 says():TYVM BGG
horsegal says():When do you think Battle for Mosul will be over?
BGG says to Pablo():obviously - there will be pockets, but - ISIS has been working on other plans for months.
BGG says to Pablo():they knew this was coming.
BGG says to horsegal():part of me wants to think it will go quick - but who knows??
horsegal says():OK thx
Dabmac says():aske and anwered - I know how to use a ?
BGG says():Hey Pat - while we have a little lull here...
