Millionday Roundtable 8/11/14 Part 2
[millionday] HE IS REFUSING TO STEP DOWN -- SO HE WILL HAVE TO BE REMOVED THEY CAN NOT HAVE TWO PMS
[dovi] US just took out a convoy
[clay] Possible coup from m ?
[awesomedtl] bust out the PINE box lol
[wmawhite] sczin11 ...I thought the nominee would be voted on first by parliament.
[millionday] wmawhite I AGREE -- SO FOR HIM TO BEGIN WITH FILLING THE POSITIONS OF GOV SEEMS OFF SOME -- SO WE SHOULD HEAR MORE ON THIS FROM PARLIAMENT
[OOTW] Note - i believe that as abadi holds the post of deputy speaker - also, he has to first resign the position in the parliament ?
[sczin11] wmawhite and in the meantime, waiting for the vote, my best guess would be, if anyone would be considered pm, it would have to be maliki... otherwise the country would be PMless, and maliki would be arrested..
[tbob] us and un special forces may just do the trick
[The Shoe] He's about to be a cancelled soap opera!
[nona24] perhaps there is a concern that abadi may pull a maliki in regards to filling his ministerial posts. therefore masoum is waiting until he does so before he is officially sworn in...?
[millionday] LET ME FIND SOME MORE ON IT -- BRB
[millionday] HE HAS BEEN NOMINATED FOR THE POSITION OF PM AT THIS POINT
[awesomedtl] millionday who
[tbob] millionday and according to your report above -- already jumping into gear
[millionday] Haider Abadi
txoilman] Can Abadi appoint M as one of his deputy's
[awesomedtl] NOw do we haveta wait for the elusive vote for this to be official
[sudo1114] Md. Going back to the budget. If approved for projects do they need the RV to fund??? Sorry if you answered this before or it's a redundant question.
[Signman] I seen where all the former ministers were asked to leave office
[jackiechan] Why would he ever want to do that?
[tbob] politcal side seems to be on track -- economic side they are already talking about the budget -- can it get any better?? lol

[millionday] The Obama administration has begun directly providing weapons to Kurdish forces who have started to make gains against Islamic militants in northern Iraq, senior U.S. officials said Monday. Previously, the U.S. had insisted on only selling arms to the Iraqi government in Baghdad,
but the Kurdish peshmerga fighters had been losing ground to Islamic State militants in recent weeks. The officials wouldn't say which U.S. agency is providing the arms or what weapons are being sent, but one official said it isn't the Pentagon.
The CIA has historically done similar quiet arming operations. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the operation publicly.
[millionday] The move to directly aid the Kurds underscores the level of U.S. concern about the Islamic State militants' gains in the north, and reflects the persistent administration view that the Iraqis must take the necessary steps to solve their own security problems.
To bolster that effort, the administration is also very close to approving plans for the Pentagon to arm the Kurds, a senior official said. In recent days, the U.S. military has been helping facilitate weapons deliveries from the Iraqis to the Kurds, providing logistic assistance and transportation to the north.
The State Department sought to downplay the significance of the apparent shift in U.S. policy.
The militants have "obtained some heavy weaponry, and the Kurds need additional arms and we're providing those - there's nothing new here," said department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
millionday] SO THIS IS STATING THAT WE HAVE SUPPLIED THE KURDS WITH WEAPONS THEY NEEDED TO REGAIN GROUND
[sudo1114] 14:10 ??? Md. Going back to the budget. If approved for projects do they need the RV to fund??? Sorry if you answered this before or it's a redundant question.
[jackiechan] Outgoing #Iraq PM Maliki running out of arguments: Claims no one in Dawa party can sign major agreements except him http://t.co/hsOotHSAs3
dovi] Obama is getting it right for the wrong reason which is to keep from having to send in a lot of boots after he indirectly caused all this by pulling the troops too soon
[dovi] Arm the Kurds! Yes!
[txoilman] Hope Abadi don't put M on his Cabinet
[tbob] dovi IMO political posturing -- to say we helped Iraq
[watchman42] Ditto that Dovi
[tbob] nothing like showing up at the last minute to take credit
[awesomedtl] dovi I understand it differently O had to get the troops out cuz M wasnt granting the protection of our troops, if pour troops killed someone there they wouldl of been convicted and O said get emm out? correct me anyone if Im wrong
[ramses24d] More like Strategic Framework Agreement to me
[tbob] The world says time for Maliki to go -- he will be gone!!
[Pablo] How long till he goes?
[stargate] The Iraqis were the ones who voted down the SOFA agreement to keep troops in Iraq.
[dovi] millionday sudo1114] 14:10 ??? Md. Going back to the budget. If approved for projects do they need the RV to fund??? Sorry if you answered this before or it's a redundant question.
[Stash] Sure he does more than play golf. He also plays a little basketball
[sudo1114] Dovi. Thanks
[tbob] Pablo no timelines given -- we are still looking for clues
millionday] YES WHAT THEY WILL DO IS TRANSFER THE BUDGETED AMOUNTS TO THE PROVINCIAL BANK AND THEN THE PROJECT WILL BE FUNDED
[millionday] CBI WILL SET THE VALUE WHEN THEY WANT TO -- IF IT IS BEFORE THEY SEND MONEY OR AFTER TO THE PROVINCES -- IT WILL BE DONE BY DATA ENTRY
[millionday] THEY COULD FUND SOME DOMESTIC CONTRACTS SO THAT THEY CAN WAIT FOR CBI TO FINISH SO THEY COULD PASS THE BUDGET AND DO LOCAL WORK
millionday] WE STILL DONT HAVE A DATE BUT IT IS VERY CLEAR WHAT THE ASSOCIATION IS DOING AND THEY HAVE REPORTED THEY ARE HEADED TO THE MARKET ECONOMY -- THAT WILL TAKE THEM OUT TO THE GLOBE
[stargate] So what about article VIII of the IMF
millionday] LIKE THE CHICKEN AND THE EGG IN MY OPINION -- THEY WILL BE IN ARTICLE 8 TO BE MONITORED TO GO BY ALL OF THE INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS
millionday] HERE WE GO
[millionday] FOUND SOMETHING
[millionday] Prime Minister-designate Haider al-Abadi, Monday, everyone to unite and cooperate to meet the organization Daash terrorist.
Ebadi said in a news item carried by Iraqiya official and I followed "Tomorrow's Press," said that "for everyone to cooperate and unite to stand against the terror campaign being waged on Iraq and to stop all terrorist groups. "
Commissioned by President Fuad Masum, Monday afternoon, the leader of the coalition of state law Haider Abadi form a government within 30 days.
noteworthy that the policy of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and over two Ssayastin terrace where the government met with stiff opposition by Most of the political blocs in the country, making a mess going on recently fallen to the fall of the city of Mosul and some areas but militants Daash.
[millionday] SO THERE WE HAVE IT -- HE IS DESIGNATED TO BE PM
millionday] HE WAS NAMED BY THE PRESIDENT AND THE FIRST WORDS OUT ARE PRETTY GOOD
[millionday] LOVE IT
Jackiechan] See there thats a good prime minister in the making instead of worrying about his election hes stating Lets get to work.
[millionday] jackiechan I AGREE
[dovi] the fact the court is not even considering the validity of the appointment IMO implies tacit affirmation of the appointments legality
[hstrymknwmn] oh well..... here goes.....I don't believe this will go to the last minute like the PM selection did.... 30 days....they don't want Maliki to be PM and UNTIL THE GOI IS FORMED Maliki is still the leader....I DON'T THINK THEY'LL WAIT. I read an article that states M is still PM until GOI formed.
