OOTW: THE REASON THE DINAR DOES NOT GO UP IS THE CBI BUYS FOREIGN CURRENCY EVERY TIME SOMEONE BUYS A DINAR THIS IS GETTING HARDER FOR THE CBI TO DO WITH LOW OIL PRICES AND THE WAR ON ISIS THEY HAVE TO NOW CONSIDER RAISING THE DINAR OR DEPRECIATING IT
IF THEY DEPRECIATE THE DINAR THEY WILL GAIN MORE FOREIGN CURRENCY RESERVES IF THEY STOP THE AUCTIONS AND STOP STERILIZING BY BUYING FOREIGN CURRENCY RESERVES THIS WILL CAUSE THE DINAR TO GO UP IN VALUE

Butifldrm: World | Tue Feb 2, 2016 5:06pm EST Iraqis running out of food and medicine in besieged Falluja BAGHDAD | BY STEPHEN KALIN REUTERS/STRINGER
Tens of thousands of trapped Iraqi civilians are running out of food and medicine in the western city of Falluja, an Islamic State stronghold under siege by security forces, according to local officials and residents.
The Iraqi army, police and Iranian-backed Shi'ite militias - backed by air strikes from a U.S.-led coalition - imposed a near total siege late last year on Falluja, located 50 km (30 miles) west of Baghdad in the Euphrates river valley.
The city's population is suffering from a shortage of food, medicine and fuel, residents and officials told Reuters by phone, and media reports said several people had died due to starvation and poor medical care. Insecurity and poor communications inside the city make those reports difficult to verify.
Sohaib al-Rawi, the governor of Anbar province where Falluja is located, appealed to the coalition to air-drop humanitarian supplies to the trapped civilians. He said this was the only way to deliver aid after Islamic State mined the entrances to the city and stopped people leaving.
"No force can enter and secure (the delivery) ... There is no option but for airplanes to transport aid," he said in an interview with al-Hadath TV late on Monday, adding the situation was deteriorating by the day.
Falluja - a long-time bastion of Sunni Muslim jihadists - was the first Iraqi city to fall to Islamic State, in January 2014, six months before the group that emerged from al Qaeda swept through large parts of northern and western Iraq and neighboring Syria.
Since recapturing the city of Ramadi - a further 50 km to the west - from Islamic State a month ago, Iraqi authorities have not made clear whether they will attempt to take Falluja next or leave it contained while the bulk of their forces head north toward Mosul, the largest city under the militants' control.
