Patriot, Joey, Vic, Tim, Scott, Steve, Diana, Deb, Pam, Yukon
Patriot describes a variety of missions, objectives, style, sources, and intentions of the squad that can be heard at the beginning of every call replayed on the website: www.thecallsquad.com . See very interesting free documents and downloads often referred to on calls, for your edification. Especially look for our ‘Freedom From Intel’. This is an official document which is the Unclassified US State Dept. report called ‘The Iraq Project’. It has been theblueprint for rebuilding Iraq written in 2002. They are still following this plan very specifically, so there is no need for rumors or high placed contacts with so-called intelligence. This is the plan and we help you analyze the news media reporting the steps as they are completed. Send all comments or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Call Squad broadcasts: Sunday thru Thursday, 8pm to Midnight EST, even after the RV
Or call for Replays of every night’s calls: 760-569-7699, pin 637255# or Backup 194924#
Patriot emphatically sets the record straight once and for all that rumors of The Call Squad charging fees is NOT true. The Call Squad is planning extensive post RV calls to help listening audiences with training and educational broadcasts for cashing out strategies and investments and there will be no fees. These general calls will be free. Patriot asks for help in stopping this rumor by correcting anyone you know or hear continuing that mistaken information from spreading further. Patriot expresses significant intensity about being misquoted and insists that any misrepresentation be stopped. Nothing will be taken away or charged, if you want free information, have it your way, like Burger King.
For future consideration, if you want access to more than just general news analysis about topics that have specific modules or specific guidance in the form of a Knowledge Based Cooperative that would include access to expert professionals in addition to The Call Squad moderators; we are listening to our audiences, compiling a list of emailed topics that could be produced and offered. There is a possibility that additional services could be offered in the future which may require a fee, but that would not replace or eliminate the FREE part of our general information service.

Deb Reads: 41 world companies to compete in Iraq's fourth oil-licensing round
Baghdad, August 14 (AKnews) – 41 companies around the world are preparing to enter Iraq’s fourth oil licensing round on September 11, says the Oil Ministry.
Ministry Director of Contracts and Licenses Abdulmahdi al-Amidi told AKnews that 41 international energy firms – chosen from among 50 according to size, technical expertise and financial assets - have registered bids.
Iraq – a member of OPEC - currently exports around 2.5 million barrels of oil per day (bpd) but with and extractable reserve of 143 billion barrels - the third largest in the world – plans are afoot to increase output to around 12 billion bpd over the next five years.
Reported by Jaafar alWannan
Deb states: I didn’t think they could sign any more oil licenses until HCL was complete….
Patriot: Yes, June 5th the Parliament said no more until the HCL was complete. Then in mid July we saw major contracts signed for gas and oil pipelines. On June 30th Ban Ki Moon of the UN stood in front of the Iraqi Delegation, and said it was a Historic Day for Iraq, as they were from that time permitted
Steve reads: Bayazid Hassan, a proposed oil and gas law is the best solution to the problems of Iraq in this regard
15-08-2011 | (Voice of Iraq) - "the gate of Iraq" Sulaymaniyah - A member of the Commission on oil and energy in the Iraqi Council of Representatives, that the proposed oil and gas law by a number of deputies to the committee is the perfect solution to the problems that plagued Iraq in this regard, pointing out that the proposed law offers grants full powers to a committee in charge of oil in the area of the country.
Said Bayazid Hassan that "60 members of the Iraqi Parliament submitted in the earlier proposal of the law of oil and gas to the oil and energy in the Council," adding that "the proposed law is the ideal solution to the problems that plagued Iraq in the oil and gas."
Hassan added that "the proposed law offers grants full powers of the Commission competent in the field of oil in the country," noting that "the expected inclusion of the proposal on the agenda of Representatives during the next few days to discuss it after the Council voted to approve the inclusion within its work during its meeting last Friday."
A member of the Commission on oil and energy parliamentary that "the proposed law is similar in content of the draft law of oil and gas joint between the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government for 2007 is that the proposal canceled the membership of the Commission on oil and gas and federal head of Iraqi oil the national and the President of marketing of oil from the relevant committee in the field of oil by the allocation of fund for the proceeds of Iraqi oil. "
He noted that "the proposed law offers a solution to outstanding problems between Baghdad and Erbil, with respect to oil and gas where it is proposed to form a joint committee whose members include the Minister of the Federal Oil and Minister of natural resources in the territorial Government and the Chairman of the Commission on oil and energy representative to review the oil contracts concluded by the Kurdistan Regional Government with foreign companies." He added, "If the Joint Committee to reach agreement, the heads of the three major blocs in the Iraqi parliament will stick to the signing of the agreement."
The cabinet approved the draft law of oil and gas in 2007 but faced a Kurdish objection, it is seen by observers differences between Erbil and Baghdad over the sharing of oil revenues and control over some fields in northern Iraq and the Kurdistan region.
The law will determine the party that controls Iraq's vast oil reserves, the fourth-largest reserves in the world and also aims to attract foreign investors.
Iraq and select a target to increase production capacity to 12 million barrels per day by 2017 from about 2.7 million barrels per day currently.
He continued that "the proposed law defines the powers of the Federal Oil and natural resources in the region and the provinces extracted oil as well as a mechanism to conclude contracts for the field of oil with foreign companies," explaining that "the proposed displays authorize the Federal Oil and Natural Resources Kurdistan conclusion of the initial contracts with foreign companies and forwarded to the Commission on oil The Federal Energy during a maximum period of 30 days for the Commission to turn to study the contract in the absence of his consent to the conditions are returned to complete the conditions otherwise the Committee shall issue its decision on the contract within 60 days can be extended to 45 days extra in case failed to reach a final decision during that period contract is in force legally. "
The Kurdistan region has started exporting oil from its territory in June of 2009 for the first time in its history from the fields, "Taq" and "Tawke" rate of about 100 thousand barrels per day.

Steve concludes: It appears that some of the parliamentarians and GOI is getting fed up with the delays and obstacles implementing the oil and gas laws that have been approved and agreed upon. I think the RV and implementation goes hand in hand.
Joey adds that the HCL law is very similar to the content of the draft oil and gas law from 2007. And the solution that it offered was the Joint Committee whose members include Minister of Federal oil and the Minister of Natural Resources
What is significant, that when the HCL was passed, but Kurdistan was the holdout as they did their processing and tracking of oil records separately from Baghdad because they didn’t trust from the days of genocide. Kurdistan does not quickly trust the GOI, On June 25th, Americans, UN and other delegation was in the Kurdistan Capital, and they gained acceptance for the HCL law from the Kurds; the Kurds were assured that they would get what they had been promised, amidst their suspicions. They were assured by a new federal oil ministry which is a committee at the federal level that reports back to the UN who audits them every year. Barzani said go ahead and proceed with the HCL.
Steve: It seems that relative to the HCL, they will not want to pass and implement without RVing their currency; IMHO that they don’t want to begin doling out money to the people until the money is RVd first. They want to expedite the HCL payments to the people which means they also want to expedite the currency first.
Patriot: We do know one thing at this point, until these things are done, it will not RV, because obviously this is part of the process.
Joey reads saying that this supports what Steve was saying:
Bayazid Hassan: the law of oil and gas will meet the aspirations of Iraqis in the development of the oil sector Ali Aldhargam - 12/08/2011 pm - 1:20 p.m.
A member of the Commission on oil and energy in the House of Representatives Bayazid Hassan, the law of oil and gas will meet the aspirations of the Iraqi citizen in the organization and develop the oil sector. He told the National Iraqi News Agency / NINA /: "This law will hold the oil sector in Iraq's provinces and regions, and the distribution of power in the management of oil and other riches. He continued: "This law includes the formation of the Federal Council for Oil and Gas, which is the highest authority for strategic planning of oil policy in the management of all oil operations in Iraq. He said good to the enactment of this Act will maintain the funds of investors will be encouraged to attract major companies and investors in develop the oil sector because of the legal framework for this important sector. "/
Joey adds: The Iraqi people are asking for $100 per person. There is a campaign to collect signatures from the people so they can get a pittance compared to the oil companies. They want 100,000 signatures to force the GOI to pay them. Kuwaitis get 2500 / mo; and Saudi’s get $1,000 / mo , even bankrupt Iran gets $60/mo… as payment to the citizens for their part in owning the valuable oil resource.
Joey: Sounds like the people are getting tired of waiting; the natives are getting wrestless.
Patriot: Just to review for any new listeners, The HydroCarbon Law is a mechanism by which the GOI believes that the oil belongs to the citizens . They recently completed the census and 15% of all oil revenue goes to a big pool and they all draw their fair share as citizens. Iraqi people are tired of waiting as they have the largest oil reserves of any of those other nations listed with payments to their people.
Joey reads reminding how many promises have not come through for the people:
Iraqi Housing Crisis Beckons
Posted on 15 August 2011.
This article was written by Abeer Mohammed, and was originally published by the Institute for War and Peace Reporting, iwpr.net. It is reproduced by Iraq Business News with permission. Any opinions expressed are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News.
Iraq may face a major housing crisis in the next few years unless it takes steps to encourage foreign investment in the construction of homes for the growing population.
The government, it seems, needs to battle corruption, bureaucracy and improve security in order to complete a development plan, designed back in 2006, that envisages the construction of two million housing units.
In 2006, Iraqi’s ministry of construction and housing announced it would pay for 300,000 housing units while, due to budgetary constraints, foreign investment funds would be sought for the additional 1.7 million units – all to be built by 2016.
Out of the 300,000 units, only 7,000 have been built so far with a final completion date for the rest set for either 2017 or 2018, two years behind schedule, Istebraq al-Shauk, senior deputy minister for construction and housing, said.
Meanwhile, around 20 per cent of Iraqis are either squatting, homeless or at risk of being made homeless, although exact figures are unavailable, Abdul Zahra al-Hindawi, spokesman for the Iraqi central bureau of statistics, said.
Building affordable housing units was one of the key demands made by Iraqi protesters in demonstrations throughout the country in February.
Last year, in a move interpreted as an attempt to attract foreign investors, parliament passed a law regulating investment procedures in Iraq, with the accent on curbing corruption and red tape.
However, investors and business leaders feel more needs to be done to establish political stability, tackle corruption, introduce reforms and improve security.
Basim Antwan, an Iraqi investor who has business interests in the Gulf, said, “It is a risk to invest money in Iraq, not only the housing sector, but in general because the political and security situation is so unstable.”
Basim Jamil Antwan, who serves as the deputy head of the Iraqi businessmens’ union, agreed, “Instability resulting from security and political tensions leads to paralysis of the economy as a whole. Investors will not risk investing their money here.”
Antwan also said the attitude of officials and unhelpful legislation put off investors.
“Bureaucracy and our current laws do not make for a healthy business environment. For example, a businessman needs several months to register his company or investment in Iraq,” he said.
He added that corruption may also be a factor in deterring investors.
Mahma Khalil, a Kurdish legislator who serves as a member of the parliamentary committee on economics, said, “We are still late in terms of [delivering pro-] investment legislation, we need to do more.
“We have the intention to amend several laws to attract investors to housing projects.”
Analysts also warn that the number of housing units proposed is insufficient, with demand outstripping supply at the population’s current rate of growth.
Al-Shauk anticipates that the population will grow between 2.7 to 3.2 per cent annually. According to United States statistics, Iraq’s population is estimated to be around 30 million people and will reach the 35 million mark by 2016.
Asaad al-Aqoli, an economic expert, said, “The housing crisis in the country is getting worse at a time when Iraq’s population growth is getting higher. The number of housing units needs to be revised and increased, but the need is out of control.”
Under current plans, around 150,000 housings units are earmarked for Baghdad, where the need is greatest. The same number would be spread across Iraq’s provinces.
“We think the problem can be solved within several years, as we expect more investors to come to Iraq as the security situation starts to improve,” Salar Abdullah, the deputy head of the Iraqi national investment commission, said.
In Najaf, a stark reminder of the country’s housing crisis is the 50 or so families that are living the in the city’s cemetery.
Jabbar Ghait, 49, his wife and nine children have move into one of the large tombs in the graveyard because as an incense seller he doesn’t make enough money to rent a house.
“The living conditions [here] are kind of scary,” he said. “Two of my daughters decided to leave the family and move to their grandfather’s house.”
At night, he and his wife take turns to watch over the children and guard the entrance of the tomb.
“There is no electricity, no sewage system, no waste disposal – there is only one hole in the wall to allow air to get in,” he continued. “It is too hot here in summer, it’s hard to sleep the whole night.”
In Baghdad, the average cost of a two- or three-bedroom housing unit in a downtown area, such as Bayaa, is between 120,000 to 200,000 US dollars while in more affluent suburbs similar-sized homes can go for millions of dollars.
On the outskirts of the capital, thousands of squatters either occupy abandoned buildings or live in shanty towns, often facing the threat of eviction.
Basim Qasim, a 31-year-old father of three, lives in an illegal squatter camp in the east of the city, which is home to around 300 families, who have no electricity, running water or functioning sewage system.
He said he and his family had no other option but to live there.
“Where can I go? I am a poor, broken guy,” Qasim said. “I swear I do not have any money in my pocket, apart from one thousand Iraqi dinars (less than one dollar).
With little prospect of being re-housed, all Qasim can hope for is to avoid eviction.
“We do not want more than that,” he said. “All we wish is to be allowed to stay on this land, in our houses.”
Joey comments: Only 7,000 houses have been built, not a great thing to tell the people. And then they’re holding back the HCL law from these people? Good Lord, how much longer can these people bear this situation without jobs and a way to support themselves?
Patriot: And most survivors of the past years of war are younger people coming into adulthood and family life, and they just want to get on with their lives. Their population is growing, and 70% of that population is a very young adult age just starting to produce families. The growth rate will likely increase rapidly.
Steve: comments about reading how fed up and frustrated the people are becoming. The article states one of the main points is that a million people have died from war. 5-7 times that would be injured. They want to get things settled and begin to enrich the lives of the people of Iraq.
Patriot: Yep, because they’re skilled and hard working people. The money flow from oil would really stimulate small services being started and cooperatively helping each other to rebuild their lives.

Steve adds: Because of all these bombings in the various cities of Kurdistan that killed over 307 people, the implementation of laws must be enforced and security needs to take action.

The return of Prime Minister المرشقين to parliament
15/08/2011-12: 10, | readers number: 17
The State Consultative Council decided the return of Prime Minister المرشقين to the parliament without oath-taking or vote. An informed source said in a press statement yesterday (Sunday): that the State Consultative Council has decided to re-establish who was a deputy and a state minister and then-الترشيق the government parliamentary seat.
The source added: As ministers of state that they are not deputies will be referred to retire, he said: that the Shura Council is the political blocs and parliament for the replacement of Prime Minister's Parliamentary seats, after carrying out بدلائهم in the House of Representatives right the Constitution. The source said: the fact that the state has given freedom of choice المرشق the minister and to return to the parliament, or a reference to التقاعد.من on the other hand, National Alliance leader, Ibrahim Al-Jaafari, to be resolved the security prime minister after a weekend of the Blessed festival of fastbreaking. He said that " there are intensive efforts were under way between the Iraqi National Alliance to resolve the security ministries, therefore, that there is the names provided that could be done to resolve this issue after the of the Blessed festival of fastbreaking." He added that " to resolve the security prime minister will be the result of efforts and leaders of political blocs during the past period." It is worth mentioning that the security ministries remained vacant because of the lack of a political blocs on the names of the candidates for the ministries that are now of the agency by Prime Minister nouri Al-Maliki. The leaders of political blocs in the meeting that was held under the patronage of the president of the Republic Jalal Talabani recently to provide Iraqi National Alliance لمرشحيهم security ministries during a two-week period, Prime Minister nouri Al-Maliki has declared in a TV interview that the Iraqi list often submit the names of candidates belong to the Ministry of Defence to the dissolved Baath Party or armed groups other than the candidate khalid Al-Obaidi said on his part, the leader of the National Alliance Hassan Al-Sunaid about the arrival of objections by Sunni-Iraqi list on the nominations of the Ministry of Defence. " He said that the prime minister nouri Al-Maliki arrived in representatives of the Sunni component on the nominations of the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, but did not mention them." On the nomination of Iraqi لجواد al boulani of the Ministry of Defence said Al-Sunaid the chairman of the committee on parliamentary security and defense: " We welcome the idea of the nomination because it eliminated the theory, sectarian and get rid of them, whether al boulani or other." He added: "That the candidate be subject to controls and party affiliation and professional competence and acceptance of other blocs and lists," he said
Joey summarizes: So even though Maliki has the right to choose his Defense Minister, go ahead and keep sending more names my way, but remember I already have been given the right to choose, it’s my choice to choose my cabinet. This explains why all this constant rumor of minister talk is in the news when we know they’ve already agreed and the ministers are very fixed in their positions by previous accords. Allawi has his seat as President of the NCSP in exchange for Maliki’s right of choosing his own cabinet. But now we understand that some of the party members must just feel better nominating people for Maliki to consider as if he actually would. So the news keeps coming along for the ride, too.

The two sides, he said: " That the implementation of these agreements will bring political stability in the country, to the satisfaction of the aspirations of the people of Iraq as a whole." The meeting dealt with the developments of the situation in Iraq and the region and ways to strengthen political consensus and APPF.
He had talked to Mr. Najafi about the importance of following up the provisions of the implementation of Erbil ASAP, since the implementation of these agreements will bring political stability in the country to the satisfaction of the aspirations of the people of Iraq as a whole. That’s a big statement; if we just go ahead and implement what we’ve already decided upon, the people will calm and we will have a national consensus because the people will feel represented as Mr. Allawi will be in place to temper or balance Mr. Maliki and that’s what the people really want.
Steve adds that he gets emails from people asking what more is there to do? It’s almost like Iraq is experiencing a roadblock or log jam as they are wrestling with the action steps of making all the negotiated deals into a reality. Somebody needs to untie the knots.
Joey: remember how we were talking about dropping the zeros and the CBI had taken in 470,000 worth of counterfeit 10,000

The deputy governor of the CBI Selah said will be gradual…..until the absorption of the currency…bulging cash.
Joey adds: They’re telling them do not be afraid of the new currency. You will not lose value when the new money comes out, with either the new or old currency, both denominations will share the same value for each dinar contained in each denomination.
Patriot: We’re talking about the banking situation, and shamelessly offers people to go get the Freedom From Intel report at www.TheCallSquad.com and download The Iraq Project which is the plan from 2002 for a blueprint to follow. They are following it. They are very near the end, chapter 20 on banking.
Steve: People need to know as we follow their process is that the restructuring of the banking and infrastructure is the last part of the last chapter. Thank God we’re not in the middle of the book
Patriot: The news is using words like Implement and Activate. Those laws are passed, the GOI has what it needs, by law and plan, but they need to get some of the systems implemented or activated to protect the people and society for the wealth about to be released. This is not many years or even months away. It will be when it is ready, and the acceleration of frequency of major news article announcements is rapidly increasing. There is like a crescendo building. When you talk about the plight of the Iraqi people as Joey and Steve have been describing it and yet we sit here night after night, frustrated that we aren’t getting what we want, or feel entitled to. We’re lucky we have a bed and roof and nobody is shooting at us.
Deb talks about a video that shows how terrible the conditions are for the people. The graphic horrific conditions are so sad. Then our soldiers have to see that and experience this while defending their lives. I mean people sleeping on the vinyl in the bathrooms because that floor is the coolest place to lay down. It is so upsetting.
Patriot: tells of a friend who is a major photo news journalist
It’s one thing to be in a jungle or savannah or woodland and live off the land of streams and wildlife, but it is a very much more difficult existence to survive in the rubble of an industrial environment like a war ravaged urban pile of concrete and steel with no living creature but vermin. So the housing article earlier along with the urgency for this new GOI to take action for the benefit of the people is more apparent every day.
Joey: GCC States
The GCC is well placed to navigate a turbulent global economy
AUGUST 15TH, 2011 11:10 AM · POSTED IN NEWS (IRAQ & WORLD CURRENCY)
“The current economic turmoil in the US and Europe may have
short term impacts on the GCC (Gulf Co-operation Council) but the longer term
impact will be limited because the economic fundamentals in the region remain
strong,” QNB Capital said in its latest update.
Finding that the oil
prices have been falling, especially due to the global uncertainties, it said
oil prices are still strong by historic standards and it “does not expect there
to be a sustained decline in oil”.
Moreover, GCC governments use
conservative oil prices in their budget assumptions and, before the current
turmoil struck, were on course to post large fiscal surpluses this year,
according to QNB Capital.
“The GCC countries’ fiscal surpluses and low
levels of public debt mean that, even if oil prices were to decline, this would
not seriously disrupt their spending plans. This is important, because
government spending is the foundation of the region’s non-oil economy,” it
Although a weaker dollar, to which GCC currencies are pegged, could
increase the cost of imports and boost inflation in the region, it said
inflation is currently low in most countries. QNB Capital does not expect the
impact from a weaker dollar to be “significant”.
“The GCC is intimately
connected to the US, Europe and Asia, and economic and market turbulence there
will continue to reverberate in the Gulf.
“However, the economic
fundamentals in the region are still strong. Consequently it is better placed
than most other regions to navigate safely through a turbulent global economy,”
Market volatility is likely to continue for some weeks as
investors reassess risk and sentiments in the GCC equity markets would continue
to be influenced by moves in global markets, it said.
Well placed to navigate
Patriot: they keep talking about the value or fluctuation of the US Dollar. The conjecture about the Great British Pound being the tied to the IQD is not true. The GCC nations in the mid east are not concerned or afraid with the US dollar. It would take too long just to argue for years if considering changing this Petro Dollar standard with the UN, WTO, IMF, etc. If the dollar drops in value, then we’ll get more dollars if the RV occurs if the dollar is worth less. We’re in the best position now, because if the dollar gets very strong and the dinar if it changes substantially, then we’ll get fewer dollars, but we’ll have stronger dinar. So those that want to hold a balance between the two, and not cash-out all of our holdings right away, to hedge your bet a little bit, you’ll be covered both ways no matter what it does.
Joey: and they say one of the things that make them not concerned is that oil prices won’t really affect their budget because government spending is one of the major foundations in the region for non oil economy. Even in Iraq, they’re pumping up the private sector as a hedge against oil reliance.

Patriot: Right and they are staying in the US Embassy….with guns!
Patriot: Now that our troops are under diplomatic roles, they don’t need permission to protect themselves any longer and the rules of engagement have been so restricting; any claims of undue force that this new agreement will allow them the immunities they need to do their jobs securing the people and their new nation with all its infant systems starting to stand.

Joey: They’ve been funding strike events in Baghdad against the US. And now in Kurdistan they are boycotting Iranian products.
