Upstart: What an interesting day, so far....
Haven't seen any mention of the IMF meeting, despite it being crucial if we accept that the next payment of loan finds hinges on the meeting. Perhaps there isn't a meeting, as per Frank on a recent CC
Mosul appears to be very slow progress, if you believe the reports.
Iraq has massive superiority over Daesh, in numbers and military options. We ought to be seeing a quickening of the pace as Iraqi forces arrive around Mosul en masse, but not so (if you believe the reports).
I have just watched a bulletin on Al Jazeera, which stated that the Iraqis have pulled out of the Al Karama district in East Mosul! This is said to be due to them being "surrounded" by Daesh who are using tunnels.
Now I'm sure the tunnels are useful to Daesh, but I have no doubt that there are very few Daesh fighters remaining in Mosul. So, what are they telling us ?
I honestly think that such reports are buying time, to accommodate the schedule/timing of 'something else'
Yesterday I saw the report about the CBI Governor, Allak, having a series of meetings with Senior management of various banks. Why report that ? It doesn't seem significant, but it certainly is interesting...
Final briefings prior to 'something big' ?
Then we have contrary reports over the last few days about Parliament. One report describes a session being adjourned, due to lack of quorum, yet a subsequent report indicates business as normal.
Todays reports indicate that they're discussing the budget !
So, it seems that there's actually plenty going on, but we need to question the accuracy of some reports. If we conclude they are not accurate, then we should look for reasons as to why, such as with my example above, concerning the alleged withdrawal from the Al Karama area.
GreenClan: Great Summary UPSTART
-IMF Deadline Nov 1 is almost over
-So we must be now in "plan B" per Franks CC
-And Obama has no Legacy.........so sad
WaymakersKid: YUP! I'd like to know why we saw village after village (like 84 or so) being taken all around Mosul until they got to the very center then all of a sudden we're back out taking those villages on the peripheral again?? Did I jump into the future and see those reports then come back and see them again or did we all see them? lol
PappaJ: No they think we are brain dead!! LoL
SlappySquirrel: Excellent point WMK. I've been thinking the same thoughts the past 18-24 hours....IMO, They (PTB) can stretch the battle of Mosul out or they can condense it and shorten the battle, according to THE schedule. The battle of Mosul almost is like a time slot. They can adjust the amount of time needed for Mosul as they see fit. If the PTB need more time before letting Iraq go international, they can stretch Mosul out if they want another couple weeks...its quite smart actually...way to keep people guessing PTB....
Don961: Iraq showcasing what they have to offer to those who would like to do some business with them ... IMO

BGG: They have been likely waging this side of the conflict for longer, with greater veracity than anyone is aware of...Mosul is getting all the headlines - but the financial side has been "fast and furious" for sometime now...Huge steps forward allowing the UST offices IN THE CBI.
