BGG "Maliki’s coalition demands deduct the percentage of damage to stop the export of oil from the budget of the region" This isn’t all about the oil. However, the Kurds not getting paid certainly exacerbates the situation when Baghdad goes characteristically late (by months/years) paying their bills.
The Kurds have extended the “olive branch” in offering a “limited run” of oil subject to increases based on Baghdad’s paying as they go. Immediately these moron MP’s start in with the “posturing” to make it sound like the Kurds are on some kind of “probation” and subject to “budget penalties”.
They can’t be penalized from something you weren’t paying them anyway?!?

7:24 AM [brooktrout] G'day mate!!
7:25 AM [whitelions] GM All
7:25 AM [brooktrout] BGG Is it going to ne a good day?
7:28 AM [amanda] Good morning all
7:29 AM [DOUBLE B] "Add soil and rocks into the water to maintain the children's teeth" Looks like it is going to be one of those HUGE news days ! lol The ole " dirt and rock " trick. Mornin Ladies and Gents !
7:33 AM [BGG] brooktrout - don't know - just got going. Long day yesterday - in addition to doing some great business stuff and writing the blog (which I think it turned out well) the candidate we were working for pulled off a stunning upset of the TN State House majority leader in the Primary race. It was one of the two races highlighted in the evening news. Late nite. 8) looking for news now.
7:42 AM [brooktrout] Bgg :} ty!
7:45 AM [BGG] However, keep in mind...it is a Friday (which is their holy day) which follows Thursday (their new Ramadan holiday) during Ramadan (which is kind of an overall holiday month)...see?? Might not be much going on in the work place... ie - newspaper reporting. They are just soooooo overworked.
7:47 AM [BGG] no wonder they need the outsiders to rebuild their oil infrastructure - it would take til the year 2525 if it were up to them...there would always be something more important. lol
7:56 AM [DOUBLE B] This might be good BOSS !
7:56 AM [DOUBLE B] After a break of four months, the Kurdistan Regional Government decided to direct the export of oil and the Kurdistan Alliance welcomes - Long, will take me a couple of minutes to get it posted.
7:58 AM [DOUBLE B] He added that "after calls from friends of Iraq in political circles, diplomatic, government decided to resume exports to the region to build trust with the federal government to solve all the problems of the existing oil and gas in Iraq." He continued that "exports will remain at 100 thousand barrels per day for a month and if you arrive payments will rise to 200 thousand barrels a day."
8:13 AM [DOUBLE B] And called for a stop "threats against oil companies operating in the Kurdistan region, where we said that these threats useless, and that these companies have not and will not be subject to such threats, because if you were to put any oil company contracted with the territory on the black list of the Iraqi Oil Ministry, this means that There will be no level of international companies, Exxon Mobil, Chevron and Gazprom Krupp and the French and Russian companies operating in Iraq, is in the interest of the Iraqi denial of these giant companies from working in Iraq and contracting with companies small and unknown. "
8:17 AM [DOUBLE B] Friday, 03 August / August 2012 11:59 - that is great news. ] Yes, it is !!!!!!!!! The Kurds are giving Baghdad a chance to be "non-douchey" (don't think it will work) :| We'll see... still good news. Might not, but had to be a reason they thought they would get paid.
8:30 AM [DOUBLE B] If they don't pay em, they will just turn the spigot off again. I loved it when they said do not threaten these Oil Companies. We will give you an extra 25,000 barrels a day, IF, you pay us, to make up for some of the losses you incurred while you were cut off.
8:33 AM [BGG] What I can't believe is them having the "stones" to attack Barzani for "inciting" a war with Baghdad when that was clearly Maliki's doing... stunning.
8:44 AM [DOUBLE B] Sadr renewed a call for project-confidence: a promise to my partners, that if they got (124) votes, I'll be a complement to 164
8:45 AM [DOUBLE B] I was given a promise to my partners in Erbil, the Iraqi List, working for the withdrawal of confidence from the Prime Minister, that if they got (124) votes, I'll be supplementing him for: (164) (2) , whether held by His Excellency the President of the parliamentary session for a vote, and, if so allowed the prime minister, did not prevent the arrival of parliamentarians of the Dome of their parliament, after having raised the barriers for security representatives of the people and not others ..! ".
9:02 AM [BGG] DOUBLE B - SHOOT!! Now that is interesting... it's what I been saying all along. Don't count this thing dead - just yet.
9:17 AM [rlsunsfan] Don't count what dead yet? Not the RV!
9:19 AM [revbo1] rlsunsfan No confidence vote, if BGG is talking about the most recent post by DOUBLE B
9:19 AM [dwsdad] Ayad Allawi @ AyadAllawi Discussions with Davutoglu centred on regional tensions and how Iraq and Turkey can form a strong GCC, Eastern and European partnership.
9:20 AM [rlsunsfan] Oh revbo1.. Ty
9:36 AM [coyoteTx] Can someone post the time for the call today? Thx
9:37 AM [onedcharette] i think 830 CST
9:45 AM [basejmpr99] Biden makes phone call to Maliki, expresses support to government's efforts of imposing authority on borders http://www.dinarupdates. ··· post7733
Call time is not official yet but looking at 8:30pm CDT
10:09 AM [TYLJ] BGG .. glad to hear that people are putting some new blood in political offices..good I think we all should contact Biden and ask why would you support Maliki when he is trying to be the next dictator
We will post the number for the cc as soon as we have it.
10:12 AM [nawlins] TYLJ lol, seriously?
10:12 AM [TYLJ] seriously...let them know we are not idiots and are watching what they do
10:13 AM [nawlins] TYLJ lol, right.
10:17 AM [BGG] nawlins - Yes - seriously. While I respect your right to have an opinion and will vigorously defend it - we don't have to agree. When this plays out - that is exactly what it will look like and may well be one of the reasons you haven't seen what you would like yet. They BROKERED THE ERBIL DEAL THAT PUT HIM IN - contrary to the popular vote. The rules had to get "bent" to put Maliki in - in the first place.
10:18 AM [BGG] This Administration is very - very worried about the public perception of this situation and how it will play out. If Maliki causes more drama - it will not go well for the White House. Purely the politics of the scenario...
10:20 AM [BGG] and he has shown some of the cruelest - nastiest dictatorial tendancies in recent history. How is it possible not to recognize that (at least)??
10:23 AM [dwsdad] BGG, I don't see the majority of Americans too concerned over whats going on in Iraq. I think all they care about is that the troops are out. Yeah, they my be po'd because all the effort was for nothing, but I think most will be glad we washed our hands of the whole mess.
10:28 AM [yada] dwsdad although we Americans were permitted to buy/invest in dinar,,there still was an undercurrent not promoting the idea,,,many news outlets have told us this is a scam so just the mention of the word,and many Americans stay away without now,,so yes, many do not know and by design,,,choose not to know,,,,even the few I've want to profit from this assumed it was a scam so we move on,,,,
10:30 AM [BGG] dwsdad - which just clearly demonstrates why we have been downgraded to a bunch of foreign policy neophytes - no matter how much Sec Clinton blabbers over seas. It means nothing.
