sczin11 The Plan Continues... Article: "The prime minister for economic affairs adviser appearance of Mohammed Saleh, Tuesday, to lend the amount of $ 833 million for the International Fund for Iraq have positive signs and encourage donors and the international community to deal with Iraq."
LAST WEEK WHEN THE RELEASE FROM THE IMF APPEARED TO THE PUBLIC, REGARDING THE $833 MILLION DOLLAR LOAN, THE VAST MAJORITY LOOKED AT IT, AND TOOK A BREATH OF FRESH AIR, IRAQI LIQUIDITY ISSUES ARE TAKEN CARE OF AGAIN, AT LEAST TEMPORARILY....
FOLKS, ASIDE FROM THE CONFLICTING WORDS IN THE RELEASE, THE SEEMINGLY AMBIGUOUS ANSWER TO ALL THE RHETORIC WE HAVE READ, WAS MERE POCKET CHANGE, IN RELATION TO THE NEEDS WE KNOW OF...
BUT YOU SEE, THE PLAN...WELL DESIGNED, METICULOUS, AND COVERING ALL ASPECTS OF BUSINESS, CONTINUES...
IT STARTED IN DAVOS, WHEN PM ABADI STATED "IRAQ IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS!"
IT HAS CONTINUED WITH MANY OTHER STEPS...AND AS WITH ANY BUSINESS PLAN, IN ALL SECTORS OF INDUSTRY, THERE ARE CRUCIAL STEPS TO SUCCESS...
THE MOST IMPORTANT DIVISION OF A SUCCESSFUL ENTERPRISE, IS THEIR SALES AND MARKETING DEPARTMENTS...
HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WAIT IN AND OUT OF THE COUNTRY OF IRAQ TO EXPLODE INTO THE ECONOMY...
INCONCEIVABLE TO IMAGINE THE POVERTY THAT DOES EXIST...
THE THRUST OF THE DOLLARS IS COMING...THE INVESTMENTS ARE ON THEIR WAY...
IF THE COUNTRY OF IRAQ IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE IMF, THEN CERTAINLY IT IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD!
BGG - I have said – for sometime - it is not impossible for me to envision Iraq get things under way (fiscally) as a much needed stop-gap budget solution…and quite honestly – I may or may not be right about that - but at this point, it’s looking more and more like this may be what they are faced with.
Herenow: Cat's out of the bag: Everything is ready to go except ...
While it's been intimated that the RV button is in Iraq's hand and that they have the green light, it's more likely that the ball is in Iraq's court.And that a stalemate between the U.S. and in Iraq is in progress.
Everything major thing has been done that needs to be done for an RV except for one thing: Iraq agreeing to a long-term presence of US-led coalition forces in its country to protect foreign investments.
Iraq would like the U.S. to come in and quickly get rid of ISIS - and then leave. The U.S. would never do that because of the very real probability that internal division and another group like ISIS will come along and wreck everything achieved after revaluation, including the value of the currency.
When you consider that long-term oil contracts are on the line in which the U.S. and other countries will receive a steep discount on the purchase of oil from Iraq, there's no chance they will leave that opportunity to chance. In other words, the oil credits countries possess by holding Iraqi currency could come to naught in short order.
Will Iraq try to pull the trigger any way? Probably. But there's a good chance the RV will be stopped again until it is certain that long-term stability can be ensured.
Iraq thinks more equipment and short-term military help is enough. But the U.S. evidently does not agree. If the RV were to go through before a short-term or long-term solution to ISIS and internal instability is in place, the value of - the confidence in - their currency might be short-lived and cause it to go down.
And so Iraq is shopping their request for military support around and looking for other suitors beyond the U.S.
This is a high-stakes geopolitical poker game, and we happen to be caught - unwittingly - in the middle.
Time will tell, and probably fairly soon.

IRAQ: LACK OF FUNDING FOR UN-LED RELIEF EFFORTS LEAVES COUNTRY ON ‘VERGE OF COLLAPSE’
Iraq, June 9, 2015
Crisis-torn Iraq, one of the world’s most severe emergencies, is on the verge of collapse because of a lack of funding could force the closure of more than half the relief operations in the country over the coming weeks, the top United Nations humanitarian official there has warned.
This is according to Lisa Grande, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, after the 2015 Iraq Humanitarian Response Plan was launched late last week mid-way through the year in response to critical funding shortages as the conflict in Iraq escalates, with the number of people in need of life-saving assistance over the past year having increased by some 400 per cent.
Today in Baghdad, the new UN Emergency Relief Coordinator and Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Stephen O’Brien, met senior Iraqi Government officials and said that more must be done for all the people in Iraq affected by this devastating conflict.
Mr. O’Brien also met with people from Anbar and Salah al-Din Governorates who remain displaced in Baghdad. Tomorrow, he is expected to visit Erbil, to meet with Kurdistan regional officials and families who have fled the violence.
In an interview, Ms. Grande explained the latest Iraq appeal for nearly $500 million “includes only the bare, literally the bare, minimum requirements” to respond to the urgent humanitarian needs of the more than eight million people in every “single one of Iraq’s 18 provinces,” including some three million internally displaced people (IDPs), and with estimates that 1.7 million more may need life-saving assistance before the end of 2015.
“If funding is not urgently secured, more than half of all humanitarian programmes are likely to close or be curtailed in the coming weeks and months,” Ms. Grande said. “One of the world’s most severe emergencies is on the verge of collapse because of a lack of funding. The implications of this for Iraq, the region, and beyond, are enormous.”
The coordinator also outlined the top priorities in Iraq.
“Protection,” she said, “Helping to protect the most vulnerable people is one of our highest priorities.”
“Iraqis are the victims of some of the most horrible violence anywhere in the world,” she explained, drawing attention to women who are “enslaved and abused. Children are used as human shields and suicide bombers and are crucified. Populations are subjected to mass executions, torture and systematic rape. An estimated 2.3 million people are living in ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant)-controlled areas, subjected to conditions which have been condemned throughout the world.”
“We give special attention to the protection needs of the most vulnerable, including women, girls, boys, the elderly, disabled, and survivors of torture and sexual violence in conflict,” she added.
Ms. Grande also said “providing life-saving services to millions of people is the second challenge: 6.7 million people in Iraq need access to essential health services.”
In addition, she said half of all displaced families need urgent shelter support, food insecurity is a key challenge, with 4.4 million people now requiring food aid, and finally, with almost 3 million children out of school, emergency education is a priority.
“A generation of children is at enormous risk, potentially fuelling tensions and violence for decades,” she said.
