BGG ~ [There seems to be a lot of talk about the 2016 budget. Why can't Iraq pass the 2016 budget and take money from it to pay their 2015 bills?] Great thought - why can't I do that too?? Simple - it's about income stream (as well)... I'll just run down to the bank and tell them I need to overspend - dip into my 2016 "budget" and not to worry - those pesky "over drafts" will work out next year.
[Just trying to think like Maliki would] His plan is to cause so much chaos he over throws the current regime... no matter how much damage he causes along the way.
