chattels: Repeat post from yesterday : CAUTION : Many of the pundits now citing the " changes " and " intel " regarding the CBI / Rate, etc. have been " calling " for the " RV " repeatedly over time and on the basis of the latest event or circumstance. Do not be deceived that they know anything. If they did then they would have forecast the recent changes as a condition(s) precedent or attendant to the " RV ".
It is what I call " situational / happenstance intelligence ". Pundits take the recent news and conform it to their own narratives. We do not know what if anything recent news or events mean for our liquidity event. We know that many other things are relatively unchanged.
Doug_W: don't they always "C"
chattels: ‹@Doug_W› Yes, but many people seem to not recall such or are seduced by positive illusions.
chattels: Beginning in August the popular narrative was the Abadi reforms, which have virtually stalled and come to nothing. Now it is the IMF and CBI , etc., ad nauseum
chattels: Of course prior to August there was no mention of any need for " reforms ". The popular narrative was everything is done, DAESH is not a problem and we are " any day and everyday ", yada, yada, yada
chattels: The waiting and uncertainty of an outcome to our speculation is frustrating, but the cacophony of purported " intel " / intelligence is disgusting. It lacks integrity and is intellectually dishonest or just plain stupidity, IMO.
chattels: But I understand that few are interested in my opinion as it does not appeal to to the preferred narrative. So be it. I am in until the end. I just wish that the journey was more pleasant and less prone to sensationalism.
chattels: The month of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calendar, brings with it the memory of the sacrifice of Imam Husayn , the grandson of Prophet Muhammad

The annual memorial for him, his family, his children and his companions is called Ashura (tenth day of Muharram) and is a day of mourning for Shiite Muslims. His action at Karbala fueled the later Shiite movements
chattels: According to most reports, Husayn was born on 8 January 626 CE (3 / 5 Sha'aban 4 AH). Husayn and his brother Hasan were the last descendants of Muhammad living during his lifetime and remaining after his death.
chattels: Muhammad is reported to have said that "He who loves me and loves these two, their father and their mother, will be with me at my place on the Day of Resurrection
chattels: In Islam it is difficult to separate the religious from the political in my limited observation(s).
