Update: Abadi Economic Reforms
In my last news letter I brought you news of the necessity for Iraq to coordinate with the WTO and to reform the Iraqi banking system. Now we hear news of Prime Abadi on Wednesday participating in the Davos World Economic Summit in Switzerland and meeting with the WTO president Jim Yong Kim.
What do you think this meeting was all about?
I quote from the article below – “"the Prime Minister met today, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and his entourage, were discussed during the meeting of the World Bank for Iraq SUPPORT EXPERTISE AND SIMPLIFICATION OF PROCEDURES AND ASSISTANCE FOR THE REFORM OF THE BANKING SYSTEM”.
I need everyone to wake up and take off your blinders as to what is going on now in Iraq. The GOI is moving towards a global economy but there are procedures and banking practices that need to first be in place. How many times must I show you this in articles, SMP, MOU, etc before you believe it? You want to know why Iraq does not yet have a global currency…well here it is.
I quote from the article below – World Bank President stressed that "Iraq's success is important to the whole world and they are ready for all that Iraq needs support in the experience."
So do you think Iraq is about to go global with their currency? You tell me.
I can’t give you an exact date but I will say that Abadi is moving aggressively in this direction and it will not be long. But let’s read the articles and listen to the news. They will tell us.

Update: Fighting ISIS
I present the article below on the latest news of the future efforts to retake Mosul.
I quote from the article below – “US secretary of defense explained that the plan provides for the restoration of mosul through a double process, since Iraqi forces launched an offensive from the south, while chen iraqi Kurdish forces attacked from the north”.
Now we know their basic strategy. This strategy was reviewed twice both in a Paris meeting with core coalition countries (and agreed to) and again in the Davos meeting.
CARTER'S PLAN FOR THE RESTORATION OF MOSUL: IRAQI FORCES IN THE SOUTH AND NORTH OF THE PESHMERGA ACCEPTABLE PLAN
Twilight News / US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter said Friday in Davos, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on the same wave with the international coalition in the campaign against the organization of the Islamic state and the goal of the restoration of Mosul.
Carter told reporters after his meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister on the sidelines of the World Economic Summit in Davos that "conceivable (Abadi) to plan the battle" against the jihadists "are the same as those discussed by the beginning of the week in Paris."
Carter was referring to a meeting of the core countries participating in the coalition against al-Islamic state Wednesday in Paris, which considered that the goal in Iraq now lies in the focus on the restoration of Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, dominated by the organization in June 2014.
US SECRETARY OF DEFENSE EXPLAINED THAT THE PLAN PROVIDES FOR THE RESTORATION OF MOSUL THROUGH A DOUBLE PROCESS, SINCE IRAQI FORCES LAUNCHED AN OFFENSIVE FROM THE SOUTH, WHILE CHEN IRAQI KURDISH FORCES ATTACKED FROM THE NORTH.
Carter pointed out that "this plan acceptable to both Baghdad and Erbil," the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan.
He said that this "momentum born of the victory of the" Iraqi forces in Ramadi, "further support the benefit of Mr. Abadi, the Iraqi government."
Carter pointed out that this creates for the Iraqi government "opportunities for further efforts", in parallel with the increase of the coalition military efforts, according to what has been agreed in Paris. He focused the Paris meeting to take advantage of the "Undo" jihadists organization of the Islamic state and to work on the hit "centers of influence" in tenderness and Mosul.
MYSTERY SURROUNDS THE IRAQI POSITION ON THE DEPLOYMENT OF US TROOPS TO SECURE THE BORDER WITH SYRIA
Long-Presse / Baghdad
Expects that the US deployment of "special forces" near the Iraqi-Syrian border in preparation for battle retrieval of Mosul "Daash".
The new troops will come from Kuwait and will work on the separation of "Daash Iraq" from the other in Syria, according to the parliamentary committee for security and defense.
Furthermore, it does not exclude the parties in opposition to the National Alliance of the United States, and hinting to the possibility of using "force" against any foreign military presence in Iraq.
And speak other parties in the National Alliance for the existence of "quasi-consensus" within the Shiite bloc to reject Western interference in the country without government approval.
Despite the rejection that reported by the Prime Minister for the deployment of any foreign troops on Iraqi soil, but mystery still surrounds the official Iraqi position about the American officials statements.
Constipation border with Syria
In turn, US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter said Friday that the coalition led by the United States to fight "Daash" restore the cities of Mosul and tenderness, and that he will use "ground forces" in the framework of Strutijeth to achieve this.
He said Carter, who was speaking in Davos, Switzerland, "we must eliminate them in two places and I would like to make progress in this regard as soon as possible."
He said the coalition raids and bombs used to control the roads between the two cities and cutting off communications between them. "Of course this will separate the Iraqi theater of the Syrian theater."
Carter said he will be sending more ground troops likely to support the existing forces there but also part of a strategy to mobilize local forces "and not try to solve them.
For his part, says Mohammed al-Karbouli, a member of the parliamentary security committee, said that "liberalization of Mosul need to cut supplies coming from the Syrian tenderness controlled by Daash".
It is likely Karbouli, in connection with the (range), that "the US 101 Airborne Division in that task."
The 101st one of the elite units of the US military, and specializes in the use of helicopters to carry out offensive operations. Band phones, described as an atmosphere of more American teams and a number of 16 thousand troops and 270 Apache attack helicopters and Black Hawk helicopters and Chinook helicopters and contributed to the Kuwait war in 1991 and the Iraq war in 2003.
In late 2015 quoted (Army Times) American military, for military leaders as saying that "the headquarters of Task Force 101 in Kentucky will move to Kuwait, to lead combat missions and operations training and consulting Iraqi security forces during the battles for nine months."
Gen. Gary Viluxa, the division commander, confirmed that "the primary concern for the past three months was the study of the situation in Iraq." He pointed out that "the band mission in Iraq will start with the beginning of next year."
The Iraqi government, in turn confirmed a month ago that any deployment of foreign troops on Iraqi soil needs to coordinate with them. He said al-Abadi deploy troops without the consent of his government "is hostile."
But Karbouli says that "the government agreed to the international coalition, and the new force will be part of that alliance," adding that "the new forces are not wild in the conventional sense, but rather the quality of forces will have a special mission."
The president of the parliamentary bloc solution rejected the deployment of US forces Iraq to fight Daash that he "would be an incorrect decision." Karbouli says that "American power will provide free of weapons and control of the border 24 hours, with Iraq desperately needs so he was facing a financial crisis."
Member of the Commission on Security asserts that "Daash still fighting fiercely in Anbar and Salahuddin, despite victories in Ramadi and Tikrit," stressing that "Iraq needs US intervention to resolve the battles there and reduce the loss of local forces."
He says a member of the Union forces, the most prominent Sunni blocs, "The United States is responsible for the chaos in Iraq and the correct mistakes," but he corrects saying "Anscheran for a new occupation, but they are created from the problems and addressed them."
Liberal: Snquaomanm again
In parallel confirms Deputy for the Sadrist movement that "resistance factions would expel US forces as it did previously unknown, if entered in spite of the government."
The MP Mazen Mezni, a member of the Liberal bloc in an interview (range), that "the deployment of Western troops in Iraq would be a steal for victories popular crowd."
Mezni added that "the Iraqi forces and the crowd does not need foreign troops, especially as it has its own editing a number of cities."
On the other hand confirms the Liberal bloc member that "the National Alliance agreed almost entirely to reject the deployment of foreign troops, and that the head of government is part of that alliance."
He called the Sadrist bloc member US forces to "refrain from interfering in the affairs of Iraq," pointing out that "Iraq does not need even Astbartah to information from Washington and have to leave us and leave."
The cleric Moqtada al-Sadr suspended, the end of 2015, on news the deployment of US forces in Iraq as "rejects any kind of interference, whether land or air or even freely."
Citizen: accept conditions
On the other hand says MP Habib Terminal, a spokesman for the citizen's parliamentary bloc, said that "there is an agreement between the government and all political forces to reject any interference RSVP without government approval."
And confirms Terminal, through a statement with the (range), that "the government does not yet apply to the deployment of US forces in Iraq." But he said, "would be in favor of the citizen block any effort in supporting Iraq fighter Daash condition the government's approval."
Terminal ruled out that the United States of meddling in Iraq without the approval of his government, expecting that "the United States would not violate the security agreement signed between the two countries."
One more item today:
Let’s not forget to keep praying for the success of THESE IRAQI AND COALITION SOLDIERS. I believe their success is in part some of the acceleration of the process we are now witnessing.
Remember too to pray to the princess of peace – Our Blessed Virgin Mary. She has the ear of Christ and she can intercede in heaven and bring us the peace we all desire here on earth. We can not do it alone. I believe that if we all make this our daily prayer you will see change. It is already working even in the short time since I have been publishing this prayer section. It does not matter what religion you believe, if you pray then to your oven beliefs entity it is still the same powers and good for all of mankind. Ultimately it is all the same God anyhow.
“Lord, protect Abadi and all who stand with him in righteousness, the Iraq and Coalition Soldiers who are fighting the good fight against terrorism, that they would be shielded from the enemy and would be Victorious against them! We ask that the Victory comes swiftly and healing of the Iraqi peoples and all whom have been effected by these evil doers can begin!
We pray for the process of the currency reform, the full implementation of the Iraqi economy to full international status and the bringing of prosperity and wealth to its people“ Amen!
Till next time…. Auf Wiedersehen!
Peace and Luv To Ya All,
