Welcome To Monday Night News With Millionday!
millionday] this is the LATEST STATEMENT FROM THE US ABOUT iRAQ`S ROLE WITH THE THREATS
[millionday] The United States reiterated Monday emphasized the need for Iraq to be united to face the threats of the organization of the Islamic state.
Said White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the Islamic state regulation constitutes "existential threat" to Iraq, adding, "To counter this threat will no doubt be a unified country.
" Ernst added, "I do not think that one can reduce the (importance of) the problems that hinder the decisions of this kind and to reach such agreements."
[millionday] NOTE -- REALIZE THAT THE STATEMENT READS --
" TO COUNTER THIS THREAT WILL BE NO DOUBT A UNIFIED COUNTRY" -- NOW THAT SOUNDS LIKE A DARE/ULTAMATUM/CAUSE AND RESULT + MANY OTHER STRONG MEANINGS FOR Iraq
[millionday] The spokesman said, "but let us be frank, that reaching these agreements and to take the difficult decisions necessary for the survival of Iraq."
U.S. officials continue to call the Kurds, Sunni Arabs and Shiites to form a government of national unity without being strides in this direction. Ernst spokesman warned that "further military intervention" by the United States "can not only be done in parallel with concrete commitments by the Iraqi leaders" and promised to "adopt a more open government program" on all sides.
[millionday] NOTE -- THEY NEED TO TAKE CHARGE OF THEIR UNIFIED GOVERNMENT AND USE THE HELP THEY ARE BEING GIVEN
millionday] OOOPS AND HERE COMES THE RESULTS OF THE AGREEMENT THAT WAS MADE AND NOT UPHELD
[millionday] However, the spokesman did not go so far as to say that he will not be sending military aid to Iraq as long as it is not the formation of a new government, which may take several weeks.
millionday] SO THEY DID NOT GO AS FAR BUT THE POINT WAS MADE THAT IT CAN BE DONE SO GET OFF YOUR ROCKER AND GET TO WORK ON THE AGREEMENT
[millionday] THAT AGREEMENT WAS MADE VERY CLEAR -- SO AS WE CAN SEE IT WAS NOT UPHELD SO AT ANYTIME IT CAN BE ENFORCED IN MOST OPINIONS
[millionday] BRB WITH MORE
millionday] HERE ARE THE OBSTACLES ON THE KURDISTAN INDEPENDENCE
[millionday] Iraq's Kurds would face enormous challenges if they were to secede, but the threat of an independence vote amid chaos nationwide could squeeze concessions from Iraqi federal government, experts say.
Their autonomous three-province northern Kurdistan region expanded its control over a swathe of territory that Baghdad also claims when Kurdish Peshmerge fighters moved in last month to areas from which Iraqi soldiers withdrew during a sweeping Sunni militant onslaught.
That emboldened Kurdish president Massoud Barzani to call for a referendum on independence, which he said would be a "powerful weapon" in Kurdish hands after years of bitter haggling with Baghdad over oil, territory and funds.
millionday] But experts say secession soon would be fraught with danger, and that the threat of a vote is more likely a bargaining tool on a longer road to independence.
One of the biggest obstacles to Kurdish secession is money, with oil revenues from areas they control insufficient to pay for the region's numerous civil servants, and future revenues in doubt because of objections from Baghdad, which considers independent Kurdish energy exports to be illegal.
The dispute with the federal government has led Baghdad to withhold the 17 percent share of the national budget allocated to the Kurdish regional government (KRG),www.Ekurd.net and the landlocked region's ability to augment its income relies on exporting oil through the Turkish port of Ceyhan.
[millionday] NOTE -- THE AGREEMENT MADE BY THE KURDS DOES NOT ALLOW FOR THEM TO HAVE THE FUNDS NEEDED TO ACTUALLY RUN THE COUNTRY IF THEY WERE TO BE AN INDEPENDENT
[millionday] NOW CHECK OUT THIS FACT
[millionday] While the Kurds struggle for money, they are also financing an expensive campaign to keep a raging Sunni insurgency led by Islamic State (IS) jihadists from their borders and out of disputed areas vacated by the retreating Iraqi army.
But with the IS militant onslaught held in check by state forces further south, experts say it is only a matter of time before they turn their focus on the north, which may force the KRG to call for Baghdad's help.
Meanwhile, Kurdish politicians are fighting for key posts in Iraq's new government after April polls, indicating they are hedging their bets on independence.
[millionday] AND AS WE HAVE ALL SAID >>>>>>
[millionday] "This is just a way to put pressure on the Baghdad government, and the proof of that is that they're still battling for the post of president and other posts on the political map," Ihsan al-Shammari, a politics professor at Baghdad University, said of the independence referendum.
Such a ploy could backfire on Barzani, however, given the Kurds' long-time aspirations for a separate state. "He can wave that sword around his head when he's looking toward Baghdad, but his population (is) deeply committed to independence and has in the past been frustrated he hasn't driven them there," said Toby Dodge, director of the Middle East Centre at the London School of Economics.
"I don't think he can flirt with his population without sowing deep alienation if he doesn't deliver it."
[millionday] NOTE -- THE CITIZENS ARE STARTING TO LIKE THE IDEA WHICH WAS MEANT FOR PRESSURE -- OOOPS
[millionday] The United States, which the Kurds are keen to cultivate as an ally, has warned against a rush for independence, while Shiite Iran, a powerful neighbour to any future Kurdish state, is unlikely to condone a unilateral breakaway from Shiite-led Iraq.
With Turkish support uncertain, strained finances, insurgents at the door, and the possibility of revolt by Arabs in disputed lands that Kurdistan intends to fold into its realm, experts do not expect the birth of a new nation soon. "You'd end up with a dead state," Shammari said
millionday] AS WE HAVE SAID -- THEY DO NOT HAVE THE RESOURCES TO BE INDEPENDENT FOR THIER CITIZENS AND IT IS VERY COSTLY TO IMPORT THE NECESSITIES NOT ONLY THAT BUT ANY ADVANCEMENTS WOULD TAKE SECOND PLACE IN NEEDS AND AS SAID HERE -- PRODUCE A DEAD STATE -- THEY ARE NOT READY
millionday] SO WHAT WE ARE SEEING IS THE DIRE NEED AND WANT TO HOLD A HUGE ROLL IN GOVERNING THE NATION AND LACK OF COMMUNUCATION SKILLS TO GET WHAT THEY WANT -- IMO AND PRETTY OBVIOUS IF YOU ASK ME
