Hello again Family......just got home and looking to update some of the news.....
It appears that Obama isn't speaking loud enough to get the attention of Maliki...but he does seem to be getting the message now and is willing to talk with the Sunni's....a step in the right direction I think. Now Maliki is telling the Kurds that he hears voices.....that tell him to take away the 17% for the Kurds that is in the budget. This will need to be watched as they spar with one another.
In another oil related article, it seems that Iraq is coming to the realization that they need to become less dependent on oil as their income (stands to be about 93-95% of income) and it should be in the 80% range.....imo....to drive that percentage down they are in need of a currency that does not sit idle at the current program rate....they need to own a viable currency that will immediately grab attention around the world.
Here comes yet another bank, this time in Mosul, that will be increasing capital to 250 billion dinar, by way of offering an IPO in the form of 40 billion shares.

Family did you realize that the Kurdistan region is one of the fastest growing economies in the world!!! They seem to have the full gamut of opportunities oil, construction, tourism, and real estate. They are attracting UAE investors at the moment.....Erbil may very well become the Dubai of Iraq. When you look outside of the oil and gas infrastructure, rebuilding outdated real estate as well as agriculture and light industry. A very nice growth area.
Did you notice Mutlaq's article in the Wall Street Journal? There is much truth in what this man says, the Iraqi's, from Maliki down need to become more united to fight terrorism on all fronts. To alienate the Sunni's will push them toward joining the terrorists which...IMO....would not be a smart move. The political structure in regions like Anbar is already fragile....Maliki needs to push forward with caution and an open mind.
It sounds like Maliki is hearing mixed signals from the US......some members of Congress think that more aid is in order, that the US has all but ignored Iraq since the military pullout several years ago.....while the administration seems to think that Maliki has what he needs, and at the same time there is surfacing a lack of trust with Maliki....this could....imo....cost the US another ally in an already fragile area of the world, and it could mean that 8 years of fighting may have been for nothing....IMO....I believe the US will help, but will it be enough.
The Babylon province has found three new reservoirs of oil....I said in 2009 that they sit upon untold reservoirs of oil....so much that has not been properly seismographer.....when they catch up with today's technologies they will blow the doors off of oil production.
Well there is several other articles about Parliament meeting today covering a wide range of things, but not the budget as that is still being worked out with the Kurds it seems.
There will be more to come this afternoon.....well I see it is afternoon for some already.....you know what I mean

jdtolle » January 14th, 2014, Lumpy Richness
There will be pleasure and pain, triumphs and regrets. Embrace it all as it comes, make the best of it, and move steadily forward.
Disappointments will come, and then new opportunities will soon appear. Each day, each season will have its share of ups and downs, beginnings and endings.
Life is wonderfully rich, and yet that richness is not creamy and smooth like a chocolate milkshake. Life’s richness is highly lumpy and inconsistent, and that’s what makes it so magnificent.
You’re much more able to fully treasure the good times when you’ve been through difficulties. The victories taste so much sweeter after a string of defeats.
Just remember as you go along that it’s all part of the richness. Just as night gives value to day which in turn gives value to night, all life’s experiences mesh together in a truly sumptuous adventure.
On this day, in this moment, it is all yours to take in. Whatever may come, treasure the richness in all its lumpiness, now and always.
— Ralph Marston Wishing All a Safe, Warm and Blessed Day
