[da58] If this Talibani death is smoke..doesn't it seem odd to anyone else that they didn't come up with an ORIGINAL smoke screen - and would just be repeating one that has already reached such notoriety? Seems odd to me.. so many other things could have been 'staged'..
[SWFloridaGuy] da58 I don't think there's anything staged about it. That would be absurd and this is nothing like Kuwait imo. Either it was premature and he had a stroke but is recovering/on life support, or they have delayed announcing his passing (which may or may not be politically motivated). I sure have no clue what's the truth, just throwing out my initial reaction to the news. We've known the President's health has been in bad shape for quite some time and was downplayed with "knee surgery" reports that kept him out of country for so long.
Well, I've had complete knee reconstruction, ACL torn 100% and bone defects and recovered very quickly. There was more to the story even back then. I really hope that Talabani's opposition just jumped on this story to weaken the country's faith in his ability to lead and that he really is recovering. No one knows either way and we'll just have to wait and see. All the top political analysts are online speculating and have no idea at this point.

[SWFloridaGuy] Click on this link to hear Mr. Nesirky state that Ban Ki Moon feels positive about Iraq and Kuwait's cooperation/desire to move forward and resolve outstanding issues between them. There will be some additional related meetings and Ban Ki Moon will make his year end address tomorrow. http://webtv.un.org/watch/daily-press-briefing/1571671828001/
SWFloridaGuy] It's a closed meeting. I don't think anyone has anything to go on other than articles at this point. The ones who pretend to have inside sources at the UNSC in those closed meetings are doing just that... "pretending." It may be significant or just a formality. We just don't know. All they have on record is that it is a scheduled consultation regarding Iraq's continued commitment to full implementation of its outstanding obligations under the relevant Chapter VII UNSC resolutions.
A couple weeks ago the council members reaffirmed the importance of Iraq achieving international standing equal to that which it held prior to the adoption of resolutions pertaining specifically to it. So, it's a continued effort to bring them to where they need to be. Seems to be headed in the right direction for sure.
[cashinqueen] So been gone all day did talabani die or not ???
[Tenizen] Interestingly enough, the reports were that he had a mild stroke.
[SWFloridaGuy] cashinqueen We really don't know. Expendable brought in a link from some close friends of Talabani who believe he's passed but they aren't even sure. We just have to let it play out.
[Tenizen] And is expecting a full recovery.
[Tenizen] Then you have "Talibani is dead"
[cashinqueen] SWFloridaGuy thanks.... I heard Iraq has not even heard about it
[da58] Tenizen reports and articles are all over the board..
[Tenizen] Exactly. The board. In Iraq, his death isn't even in the news. The closest inkling of it is that he had a stroke and that was that.
[SWFloridaGuy] cashinqueen Yeah that's the truth. We really just don't know. They're keeping a pretty tight lid on this since the initial reports were leaked.
[Tenizen] I'm simply going to just let it play out, but we gotta remember that Kuwait pulled the same bait and switch
[da58] Tenizen but - don't you think Iraq would be original??
[Tenizen] da58 who knows? Why change something that worked before? (lol)
[SWFloridaGuy] Tenizen I really don't see what putting out a false report about Talabani's health could hope to accomplish. It's not like that could distract us from any historic revaluation with their currency (in this day in age).
da58] Tenizen I agree..all seems so 'coincidencial - but - those people over thee - just a different breed of politics and psychology as well..I've never been good at 'figuring' them out..I think others are much better than I..
[Tenizen] SWFG I know, would make no sense. But there have been so many mixed reports on Talibani that is just reminiscent of 'smoke', I just ignore it. I mean, nothing has changed...I'm not any poorer or richer. So why should I sweat it? :)
SWFloridaGuy] Tenizen Yeah I hear ya. Trust me, I'm not searching for a RV. I'm simply encouraged by Iraq's general progress and watching from afar, hoping that one day we see a nice profit. Not sweating it at all. It's madness that so many look for a RV day to day, minute to minute. I feel bad for them.
