Randy Comments: So at least some within the Kurdistan Alliance do not see any initiative being made towards reconciliation between Baghdad and Erbil and as a result oil must be sold by the Kurds to avoid economic disaster.....
do they have an agreement or not....and if so must it be binding to BOTH parties......
obviously both sides have their own version of an answer for this.....
one doesn't have the money to pay the other....and the same side can't seem to get things right when it comes to certified verification of barrels of oil exported.....but who is taking advantage of who......
the nonsense needs to stop.....right here.....who crossed the road first...the chicken or the Iraqi......one might need to think about it for a while. Aloha Randy

Randy Comments: In looking into some sources for news today I have discovered an extra-ordinarily high amount of information coming out of the Anbar Province today.....
many great successes for the Iraqi Security forces that includes the Iraqi Army, the Popular Crowd, and the Sunni tribal fighters.....they have done well in and around Fallujah, and it sounds like a matter of time before Ramadi is back in their hands.....
they are cutting off the escape routes of DAASH.....leaving DAASH little choice but to use human shields to try and save their skin.....as one would expect from them.....
I'm of the opinion that the battle for Anbar will be short-lived....in fact would not be surprised that by Thursday night's TEAM Chat we hear that most of the battle is over with mopping-up operations left along with defusing of booby traps and bombs left behind....
much like was seen in the Salahuddin Province back in April.....next up would be Mosul.....wonder if they are drinking the water there yet. Aloha Randy
