Millionday WE DONT HAVE A DATE
Millionday HERE WE GO
Millionday):THIS IS ABOUT THE AGREEMENT WITH THE KURDS AND IRAQ
Millionday This latest agreement appears to extend the life of Iraq as a state, at least for now, but it will not guarantee its survival in the long-run unless Baghdad changes its behavior and acts more strategically.
The economic blockade it imposed on Erbil for almost a year has antagonized the Kurds with such wounds that may take years to heal.
The threat of the Islamic State (ISIS) may have pushed Baghdad to show this conciliatory gesture towards the Kurds, but once the ISIS threat is gone, the KRG might face the threat of Shiite militias.
Government-backed militia groups have already caused tensions in Kurdish areas of Kirkuk and northern Diyala.
Millionday NOTE -- THE CITIZENS ARE PUSHING FOR ALL BENEFITS AND DEMANDS FOR THEIR COMFORT AND LIVELY HOOD
Millionday The resurgence of Iraqi diplomacy under Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on a regional and international level also poses its own threat to the KRG’s. Iraq mending ties with its neighbors will unavoidably be at the expense of Erbil’s foreign relations.
Kurdish leaders were not invited to attend the conference of coalition leaders in Brussels this week while Kurdish troops have been the most reliable and effective force in the war against ISIS. For this Kurdish public relations is partly to blame.
Millionday):NOTE -- WE WILL SEE THE REPRESENTATION CHANGE AS THEY ALL WORK AS ONE GOVERNMENT –
RELATIONS HAVE CHANGED IN THE COUNTRY AND SO HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITIES -- SO WE WILL SEE REPORTS ABOUT IT WHERE THERE IS NO PROBLEM
Millionday For now, the Kurds may come out the winner in this deal, but given Kurdistan's unhappy history with Baghdad, temporary financial gains should not divert them from the road to independence.
Millionday THE KURDS WERE AT ONE POINT GIVING UP AND PUSHING FOR INDEPENDENCE -- IT APPEARS THAT THEY ARE NOW HAPPY WITH THE ERBIL AGREEMENT -- WE HAVE TO KNOW THAT THIS IS AS CALM AS WE HAVE SEN IT AND IN FACT AS MANY HAVE HISTORICALLY
Millionday OK I DONT SEE ANYTHING ECONOMICALLY LARGE ANMD HAVE AN APPOINTMENT SO
Millionday):WE WILL SEE ALL OF YOU AT 730 EST TONIGHT -- ROBIN WILL BE HERE AND WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE LOTS OF NEWS SO LETS HOPE SO
