BGG Roundtable September 11, 2015 Part 1 of 2
BGG : Some - very, very good news going on today...
BGG: especially in light of my commentary yesterday...
BGG: hang on here.
_firefly_: 09/11/2015 11:07 GMT - Central Bank of Iraq is required to publish banks loan data in order to achieve transparency BAGHDAD - and babysit - Central Bank of Iraq has decided, on Friday, obliging banks to publish data on all financial loans, attributing the cause to their importance in achieving transparency and control The governor of the Central Bank on the Keywords in a brief statement,
"The central bank has committed all banks to publish data for each Alkaroq granted by you-go". Keywords and added, that "this investigation comes to transparency and community control." X, Y
BGG: Politically - I think Alak is about to start playing ball.
firefly_: importance in achieving transparency
BGG: I have said - for a long time, the question has always been, will he play ball - or be removed.
BGG: comments like this, from him show his mindset...
_firefly_: He may very well be, but this article is talking about loans and TRANSPARENCY !!!!!!
BGG: I still don't think he's competent as a CBI Gov - but Abadi may leave him in place if he "plays ball"...
BGG: and I agree - this is exactly what I'm pointing out - he's at least starting the right direction.
BGG: likely -
BGG he's seen what's on the menu...
BGG: (his name - in the fine print...)
_firefly_: I like the Transparency quote
BGG: I do to...
_firefly_: Huge !!!!!
_firefly_: A certain agency in Basel comes to mind !
BGG: exactly - HUGE ( I know there are some that complain about the "HUGE" reference - I apologize ahead of time for not being able to please everyone
JustJanette: "Transparency" greatly reduces underhanded corruption tactics
BGG: (we think it is a big deal)
BGG: which begs the ?? - what was going on BEFORE - transparency??
_firefly_: I could care less what others think, we are using the apprpriate words
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: ya...maybe Alak finally seeing his homeboy not in important Elite Shia meetings these days
BGG says to JustJanette(1:42 PM):
OK - here's a great find by Reider Visser and CantwaitwoRV
BGG: I was just getting to that HUGE report
_firefly_ says to BGG: lol
JustJanette says to BGG: Certainly actions which did not foster economic reform for the people of Iraq
BGG: If this wire report from #Iraq is accurate, former PM Maliki is absent from today's summit of Shia alliance leaders
BGG: notably (if the pic is accurate) Hakim, Jaafari and Abadi ARE there...
BGG: Coupled with this sqwauk out of the NA...
BGG: Nouri: America is pressing to pass a law of the National Guard in order to divide the country
BGG: Garbage - pure sectarian garbage... they are trying to keep the country stirred up against itself so they maintain some "personal control"... this is about the Shia Militias.
BGG: along with this news...
_firefly_ says to BGG: EXACTLY !!!!!
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: National Guard diminishes Maliki's/Iranian power and influence so not surprised with M's comments
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: yep
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: Exactly... however,
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: a report as of today...
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: "...hostages were taken in Shia area of Baghdad; Iraq army subsequently clashed with Shia militia..."\
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: Nice I saw that...hadn't suck in til now
BGG: Which means - Abadi has MAJOR support we are (as yet) unaware of...
_firefly_ says to BGG : Nice catch
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: right
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: (handshake)
BGG: if the Regular Army has directly engaged the Shia Militias around Baghdad - something is UP!!
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: indeed
diane1: Something great I hope is up
BGG: the militias have been in charge of security around Baghdad - now they allowed - or were in on hostage taking and the IRA engaged them. This would be impossible without the full support of Sistani.
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: takes me back to the news of our marines being sent over to fortify the green zone a few months back
_firefly_ says to BGG: 09/11/2015 16:05 GMT - Starting demonstrations Tahrir Square in Baghdad to demand the reform of the judiciary
BGG says to _firefly_: SWEET!!
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: and lawd knows what else we got going on over there
BGG says to _firefly_: (see - no HUGE!! )
_firefly_ says to BGG: Follow-up - and babysit - launched a demonstration in Tahrir Square in central Baghdad, on Friday, with the participation of thousands of citizens and activists to demand accountability of corrupt officials in the state and reform of the judiciary, while security forces imposed strict measures in anticipation of any security breach.
Said Alsumaria News correspondent in Baghdad, said that thousands of citizens and activists staged, this afternoon, a demonstration in Tahrir Square, the center of the capital, to demand reform of the judicial system, pointing out that the demonstrators have expressed dissatisfaction with the reform measures to the Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and demanded the implementation of more
scottiegirl: I'll say it
BGG says to _firefly_: Legit demonstrations in favor of judicial reform is a good thing.
_firefly_ says to BGG: He added that the demonstrators denounced the Liberation bad the reality of services, and called for the prosecution of corrupt officials and not to give them a chance to escape out of the country.
"He said that the security forces imposed strict measures on the place of the demonstration and nearby areas in anticipation of any breaches, while developed more of a security belt for inspection. M.a
BGG says to _firefly_: they will have some new laws passed, but without enforcement it means little...
_firefly_ says to BGG: and not to give them a chance to escape out of the country. "
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: and coupled with Sadr/Sistani military I can speculate
BGG says to _firefly_: Maliki may have flown the coup already.
BGG says to _firefly_: too late...
_firefly_ says to BGG: Can we say together .... Domino Effect !!!!!
BGG says to _firefly_: I was thinking earlier - I highly doubt Maliki ever sees a trial. He knows one is coming, but he'll go ahead of that reality...
GrannieAnnie: Domino Effect !!
mimi3: Can say together yet......RV?
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: Maliki could be working up on a Scarface moment yea
_firefly_ says to BGG: Do you think they are done with him?
diagyAAAE: lol cant
BGG: in his mind, he can still attempt to exert influence from outside Iraq (as long as he's not in jail and some kind of "Shia ruler/martyr")
mimi3: say hello to my "little Friend"
BGG: nahhh - he's too cunning for that.
diane1 says to CanTWaitwoRV: maybe but scarface better becareful of Sammy the bull
CanTWaitwoRV says to diane1: yea or sammy the drone
_firefly_ says to BGG: He may be but his son and cousin ..............
BGG: they are dumb - they will both get caught.
scottiegirl: Even if he leaves Iraq, the ICC will eventually catch up with him, yes?
_firefly_ says to BGG: And Maliki KNOWS that !!!!!!!!
maine: they would go after his family i think
scottiegirl: Those charges are not null and void
BGG: Not sure - IMHO, I just doubt he ever sees an Iraqi trial.
BGG: he won't stay.
Pablo: Someone would have to catch him.
quicktolegit96: BGG U ARE EXACTLY RT
scottiegirl: Just hate to see him get away with what he's done, but on the other hand........
_firefly_ says to BGG: IMO ... If they wanted him, it would already have been done !
quicktolegit96: ARE THEIR ONLY 3 SETS OF REFORMS WITH THE 3RD ONE ALREADY BEING ACTIVATED?
_firefly_ says to BGG: Abadi has the power
