chattels: Hayder al-Khoei @Hayder_alKhoei May 19 Corruption in #Iraq: where did all the money go? nationalinterest.org/feat... … by @AL_Khatteeb
chattels: " Currency auctions must stop, because they are killing Iraq."
chattels: " Last year, MPs’ salaries were $11,000 per month, twenty times the average Iraqi salary (not counting benefits and allowances of over $15,000 per month). In the United States, the equivalent would be a congressman earning over $1 million a year. This is the culture that Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is now trying to tackle."
chattels: " The death of industry is inevitable, as ministries are often politicized hiring schemes, giving out jobs for votes in Iraq’s dysfunctional muhasasa or “quota” system."
Tootsie: Password Prime Minister Dr. Haider al - Abadi text to the Iraqi people 2016-05-21 00:50:00 | (Voice of Iraq) - Baghdad In the name of of Allah the Merciful Iaabina our dear people
Since more than a year and a half check your troops heroine wins and frees the provinces, cities and villages of the gang terrorist Daash and succeed in re - displaced people to their homes,
and yesterday returned the humid city and we are at the doors of the return of Fallujah to the bosom of the nation ...
In the midst of these victories under way to complete the liberalization of Anbar province and preparations and then Mosul, at this time , and to coincide with the Daash terrorist attacks in Baghdad against unarmed civilians is Mendson dragging the country into chaos and attack on our security forces heroine inside Baghdad
and emerging manifestations of armed inside cities against our security forces instead of Superstorm Sandy enemy Aldaasha on the battlefield and a waste of victories and sacrifices precious being made in the war fronts against Daash,
said some of the infiltrators are aiming to disrupt the momentum of victories Tstrha our heroine, and what happened the day of the storming of state institutions and tampering with public money can not be accepted and tolerated the perpetrators
and that the law must take its course on each horseshoe, and every drop of blood of a citizen or a soldier on duty dear and precious to us.

The mess would not be in favor of the people and the country and extend an invitation to focus the efforts being behind our fighters heroes to achieve the final victory and the rejection of political differences aside, and assure everyone that we have from the beginning we were with the demands of peaceful protesters, and with our security forces , which had shown the utmost restraint and respect and restraint.

chattels: The delegation of Iraq and the International Monetary Fund Reach to provide financial support for Iraq / expanded arrangements
chattels: " ................. a financial certification by the IMF gives him a chance to deal with all international banks with high confidence. "
chattels: I SUSPECT THAT THE GREATER / GREATEST SIGNIFICANCE OF THE " CREDIT ARRANGEMENTS " ENDORSED BY THE IMF IS ADDITIONAL BORROWING TO BE DONE BY IRAQ WITH " INTERNATIONAL BANKS " AND THAT THE IMF LOAN(S) ARE THE PROVERBIAL " DROP IN THE BUCKET ".
chattels: Chihood: Federal Court decision will put us in front of two ways: either the entire political process repair or return them back to square one
chattels: " .............. the Federal Court will announce its verdict on this May 25 appeals filed on the Parliamentary sessions , which saw one of them dismiss the presidency. "
chattels: CLEARLY MY HOPES FOR " some de-escalation of the tensions with the populace." WERE MISGUIDED, TO WIT: THE EVENTS ON FRIDAY IN THE GREENZONE.
WE SHALL SEE WHETHER THERE IS A DECISION FROM THE HIGH COURT ON WEDNESDAY, THE 25TH, AND IF THE FACTIONS WILL " RESPECT " THE COURT'S DECISION ?
I WONDER HOW MUCH A DECISION EITHER WAY WILL INFLUENCE THE SECURITY CONCERNS OF THE KURDS AND / OR MEET OTHER CONDITIONS ANNOUNCED BY BOTH THE SUNNI AND KURDS.
chattels: Previous post : I doubt that there is any resolution without a decision from the High Court on the Jubourri dismissal, etc., which would appear to be at the earliest on the 25th, next Wednesday.
chattels: Several groups have stated that they will abide by the court's decision, but the Kurds and Sunni may have other terms and conditions which will not be resolved by the court's decision and may not be met otherwise. We shall see. The Sadrist malcontents have been relatively quiet so perhaps there is some de-escalation of the tensions with the populace.
chattels: "The United States is pressing toward the return of Kurdish MPs to Baghdad to take part in the Council of Representatives , ................... asking them to end their boycott of the political process. " http://wealthwatch.world/showthread.php?tid=4540&page=14
chattels: guessed Kurdish source , ...............................
chattels: " the return of the House of Representatives of the Kurds into Baghdad in the coming days , not only because of the great pressure they are subjected to , but because of their concern to the public interest and for the purpose of continuing the political process in Iraq. "
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 5m5 minutes ago Some comments on yesterday's Sadrist clashes, which we did not cover in IIP No. 131 as they overlapped with the end of our editorial cycle.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 4m4 minutes ago The April 30 mob attack isolated Sadrists politically and brought Baghdad to the brink of a Shia-Shia militia war.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 3m3 minutes ago Sadrists responded by backing down militarily - visibly moving key forces out of Baghdad - but kept up the populist protest line.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 3m3 minutes ago Indeed I was struck watching political talk shows how Sadrist figures didn't really apologize for April 30 despite wide-ranging criticism.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 4m4 minutes ago It is now clear that the Sadrist military backdown was bc they planned a new mob attack & wanted to remove any excuse for force v. them.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 3m3 minutes ago Do not overestimate Sadr's strength. He has a base of about 1/6 of the Shia pop he can mobilize, but is widely alienating the mainstream.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 2m2 minutes ago Sadrist protests have actually lost some size, no evidence of any mass Shia solidarity w Sadr, despite widespread dissatisfaction w/ govt.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 2m2 minutes ago This is Abadi's statement from yesterday. Very strong language used to criticize Sadrist protesters:
chattels: See http://wealthwatch.world/showthread.php?tid=4747
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 2m2 minutes ago Abadi directly states that the protesters hitting the GZ were deliberately trying to undermine war on terror. No mention of Sadr necessary.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 1m1 minute ago Sadr's loss of ISCI alliance had already isolated him. Add this speech to Ammar al-Hakim's May 4 speech attacking the Sadr protesters.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 6m6 minutes ago For data, note Sadr's electoral results have declined over time. Include not only Sadr seats, but size of parl't & Sadrist competitors.
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 4m4 minutes ago View translation Kirk H. Sowell Retweeted Kirk H. Sowell 2005: total: 275 Sadr: 30 Fadhila: 15 2010: total: 325 Sadr: 40 Fadhila: 6 2014 - total 328 Sadr 34 Fadhila 6 AAH 1
chattels: Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 3m3 minutes ago The Sadrists seem to be expected some kind of groundswell. This could actually be a boon for Abadi if he plays it well.
chattels: " This could actually be a boon for Abadi if he plays it well."
Doug_W: "IF" small word HUGE meaning
