UEnvoy: If you have been in this for a long time, over 3+ years for me, you should know it is about more than just Iraq, it is about 198 countries trying to even the playing field in trade, imports and exports from the countries that have been left out and more.
Imak: I was in Chase this morning and the WM I have been talking to said very plainly "Maybe next week after the Holiday". This is not really intel but the only news I personally have.

Pdids: I very much respect Delta's wisdom and his opinions as well. However, when it comes to this Bond issues, please allow me to mention that cities in the USA such as Chicago and Detroit as well as Greece sold out their " JUNK BONDS " which are rated considerably lower than the B- rated Bond rating of Iraq in a matter of Days, with not as much security to offer to back them as Iraq.
So, this differs slightly with Delta's opinion. In the case of Iraq , in my opinion, no Country such as Britian or the USA are going to purchase these Bonds without security to back these Bonds without some sort of security to back them up and what does Iraq have....... OIL.
Just my opinion.

Thunderhawk: US 'Waging Financial War' to Shatter Russia’s Economic Power
The agreement between the US and Saudi Arabia to drop global oil prices is a financial war the US is waging against Russia’s economic power, the Mexican newspaper El Universal wrote.
The main weapons in this war are financial resources, investments, stocks, shares and capital.
Even before 2009, developed countries faced a decline in economic growth. In the US, the financial crisis aggravated the situation having provoked a tumble in the real estate market and other industries.
At that time, Russia became the world’s leading energy power having taken control over oil and gas supplies to Europe and Asia. China, in its turn, became the world’s largest holder of international reserves, the article read.
Moscow and Beijing have been implementing major investment projects in Europe and the rest of the world. With the BRICS bank established, the two countries can counter the dominating positions of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
All of the above forced the US to shatter "the Russian fortress," igniting a financial cold war, the author claimed.
Since the Russian economy receives most of its income from producing and exporting natural resources, the US conducted a dumping strike against the oil industry which has affected all oil-producing countries.
"God only knows which economy would be able to survive under the low oil prices in the coming six-seven years," the author wrote.
Washington is saving its own economy by fueling the purchase of US dollars instead of stocks and by printing money.
The US artificially raises the dollar exchange rate so it can cheaply buy everything it needs and forces other countries to hold their reserves in dollars, the newspaper wrote.

Thunderhawk: Puerto Rican Group Calls for Reunification With Spain
A group in Puerto Rico has launched a campaign to demand that the Caribbean island break all political links with the United States and annex itself once again to Spain.
The Autonomy for Puerto Rico association is not happy about the island’s current status as a “non-incorporated US territory” and wants it to rejoin its onetime mother nation on the other side of the Atlantic, the association’s leader Ivan Arrache told RIA Novosti,
While Catalonia prepares for a vote which its separatist-minded forces see as the first step to independence, many Puerto Ricans are mulling their country’s return to Spain’s fold.
Established in 2012 the Association now has around 30,000 supporters, “both official and unofficial,” Ivan Arrache said.
“We want to become an autonomous community of Spain with a different system of taxation and trade. We want to be with Spain but not blend with it,” he added.
In August 2015 Puerto Rico defaulted on the full payment of its bonds for the first time in the commonwealth government's history.
Puerto Rico paid $628,000 out of a $58 million payment on its Public Finance Corp bonds which were due August 1st.
The government said it was no longer able to service its $73 billion debt.
Washington promised help in the form of several loans but said that no immediate financial bailout would be forthcoming any time soon.

Thunderhawk: Putin Submits Bill on Ratification of Integrated CIS Currency Market Deal
CIS is a regional organization formed by former Soviet Union members in the 1990s. The organization aims to promote economic, political and cultural cooperation, and eight of its nine members are part of the CIS Free Trade Area.
Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted a draft law to the country's lower house of parliament Thursday on ratifying a deal on an integrated Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) currency market.
The common financial market is to expand the use of national currencies in foreign trade payments and financial services and to strengthen trade and economic cooperation between the Commonwealth member states.
The bill has been sent to the parliament's committee on CIS affairs and Eurasian integration.
According to the official announcement on the Kremlin’s website, the agreement, signed in Turkmenistan's capital of Ashgabat in 2012, "contemplates direct access by the parties’ resident banks to each other’s domestic foreign exchange currency markets to conduct interbank FX transactions on terms more favorable than those offered to domestic commercial banks."
