chattels: Vladimir Putin allegedly ordered U.S. planes to leave Syrian territory on Wednesday, just hours before Russian airstrikes began, a senior U.S. official told Fox News.
CNN reported that Russian jets began bombing targets in Syria Wednesday. Earlier Wednesday, lawmakers in Moscow approved Putin’s request to use armed forces abroad, but Kremlin Chief of Staff Sergey Ivanov said the move referred only to the use of Russia’s air force in Syria.
“The operation’s military goal is exclusively air support of the Syrian armed forces” and their battle against ISIS, Ivanov said, according to Russian news agency TASS. chattels: www.thedailybeast.com/che...

chattels: IRISHMAN'S FIRST DRINK WITH HIS SON! While reading an article last night about fathers and sons, memories came flooding back to the time I took me son out for his first pint. First off we went to our local pub only two blocks from our house. I got him a Guinness.
He didn't like it, so I drank it. Then I got him a Kilkenny's, he didn't like that either, so I drank it. Finally, I thought he might like some Harp Lager. He didn't. I drank it.
I thought maybe he'd like whiskey better than beer so we tried a Jameson's, nope! In desperation, I had him try that rare Redbreast, Ireland's finest.
He wouldn't even smell it. What could I do but drink it! By the time I realized he just didn't like to drink, I was so fookin' shit-faced I could hardly push his stroller back home!
chattels: a little humor for the day

Tootsie: Good Afternoon ~ The World Bank plans to lend Iraq billion dollars[font]September 30, 2015[/font]09/30/2015 16:56We are currently working with the International Fund for the Iraqi Ministry of Finance to provide loan to Iraq billion dollars. BAGHDAD / Obelisk: detection of the World Bank, on Wednesday, expressed its intention to provide a loan of one billion dollars for Iraq, stressing that the amount will be handed over later this year.
Said World Bank Vice President for the Middle East and North Africa Ghanem maintained in a statement seen by “obelisk”, “The World Bank focuses on helping Iraq, and make all necessary measures to pull the country out of the financial crisis that has befallen his efforts, we seek to increase our support for Iraq.”
“We are currently working with the International Fund for the Iraqi Ministry of Finance to provide loan to Iraq worth billion dollars,” noting that “the process is not easy but we are trying to provide the amount before the end of 2015”.
The country has seen a severe financial crisis due to the high costs of the war on terror on the part of the drop in world oil prices in half on the other hand, with this great Gr general budget of the country. wealthwatch.world/showthr...
Tootsie: my thoughts ~ For years I have wondered/pondered as to why Iraq does NOT take advantatage of the many, many naatural resources the country has been blessed with other than oil/nat gas ~~
A review of mineral deposits in Iraq~ Geological mapping, shows an encouraging range of minerals across Iraq and the [font]Iraqi Geological Survey[/font] has created a minerogenic map –providing an overview of the country’s mineral wealth, available [font]here.[/font]
Main resources in Iraq:Native sulfur- Iraq the largest global reserve of native sulphur, which is strategic, as it is not linked to the oil industry.
There are 6 million tons of brute reserves in Northern Iraq. Phosphates- This 10 billion ton resource comes second after Morocco. The MENA countries contain more than 70% of the world’s phosphate reserves which contributes to a very successful fertilizer industry.
Salt mines- Iraq has a saltern producing sodium sulphate that presents a great opportunity for investment. Limestone- Deposits can be used in chemical industries and Iraq has around 8000 million tons of reserves.
Tootsie: Gypsum- Very important for Iraq’s construction industry. Quartz-sand- This resource is 98-99% pure and enormous reserves have been discovered and evaluated. Proved reserves reach 75 million tons.
Metallic zinc and lead deposits- No metallic minerals have been exploited yet so this is a great opportunity for investment and mining companies.
The reserve amounts are comparable to deposits in Turkey. Iraq also has reserves of copper, chromium, nickel, iron, manganese and borite The potential for mineral reserve production in Iraq is great, with little exploration effort needed.
There is a great diversity of high quality minerals and many of these have large reserves and multiple industry uses. Iraq also benefits from skilled man power- many Iraqis are engineers and geologists and cover the main needs: energy resources, water resources, and government support for projects meaning that market opportunities are widely available in the country.”
Tootsie: It is beyond me, always will be, how a country can ignore such an abundance of natural resources. Natural Resources are considered in the valuation of one's currency, ,
Instead of relying solely on oil/nat gas, they are in possession of so much - but ~~~ now it appears they are becoming a debtor country, rather than the donor country they aspired to not too long ago. SAD
Tootsie: and also some gold
Doug_W: amazing Eh Toots
