UU1122 – “Another Postponement” by Mnt Goat
I know I must sound like a broken record at times but this is the news until the USA decides to complete the rollout process for Iraq and let their currency become part of the global financial arena once again - meaning to let it finally go international.
Do not get discouraged when you read this news letter today. It is not really all as bad as it sounds and there is still hope that this RV decision can be resolved by the end of January (of this year….lol…..).
The USA has very big plans for this region of the world but has to learn to stop medaling so much in the affairs of Iraq as they must let de Kinder eventually learn to stand on its own two feet.
Sure de Kinder may fall and may need assistance at times (Maliki administration) but this is the process of learning. But these are the infancy years. We all remember de Kinder and their very first walk. This was an amazing time to see de Kinder now and remember only a few years ago when he/she was wrapped in a blanket held in our arms for survival, but now he/she is standing on their own for the very first time.
Sometimes you just have to trust and let go of de Kinder and watch what happens. Sure it would be nice to keep de Kinder small and cuddly their whole life long but that is not what mothers and dads are for. They are supposed to nurture and allow de Kinder to grow to their full potential, as least while they are under their supervision. There is time for cuddling and time for letting go. Then one day they meet their own loved one and have de Kinder of their own. The process starts all over again.
You see the rest of the Middle East will never fully see or understand the democracy of Iraq to bloom to its full potential thus be that example of shining democracy in their culture. How can they wish to make a new democracy in Syria if they can’t even finish what they started in Iraq. How can these new “babies” of democracy then be born in other countries of the Middle East.
Do you understand what I am saying?
One has to ask - Is the USA afraid of losing control of Iraq? Are they now seeing that in letting go of this final “carrot” dangling over Iraq will in fact move this country ahead quickly and ignore any further influence from the USA the control they don’t want to give up.
I have to tell you that you may be right since if you treated Iraq more justly and with dignity they might have more respect for the USA and its policies. What we are witnessing now is destructive and non-conductive to future ties with Iraq in any sense of the word “ partnership”. I will explain all this in my news letter today as it is very relevant to the RV process.
I hope everyone also read my last news letters dated 01/16 (LINK) since this is a continuation of this ongoing saga.
Today is Tuesday Jan 20th and we heard over the weekend that the session to finalize the 2015 budget by taking the “final vote” was postponed till Weds Jan 20th. That is today. We had hoped to hear some good news by now.
Then just yesterday we hear that it was postponed once again till next week sometime and no session date was given. So what is happening here? Even the Iraqi news is very vague as to why it was postponed. You have to read between the lines of the articles a bit but it becomes obvious when you have read literally thousands of Iraqi news articles over the past years, as I have.
These two recent postponements have solidified conclusively in my mind that Iraq is stalling in completing their budget for a reason. Any reason they give the public is no longer a legitimate reason. You see it is just a game. It is contrived and used to tell the citizens of Iraq something other than that the USA is medaling in their affairs by holding back the RV.
Could it be Iraq can’t RV without the USA’s permission?
What is this reason then for the USA to keep stalling it ?
I tried to explain to everyone in the past the Iraqi’s budget has been completed and ratified already by their president nearly a month ago now. This is fact not rumor. They even had a news cast on it back them and it was quickly hushed up and the article deleted from the news rooms. This is because the USA told them they could RV and then they pulled the plug on it again.
Remember there are always two sides to every story. Let’s explore each side.
One story is from Iraq – From their viewpoint the budget has to be stalled from implementation because they say they have to work on resolving their deficits in the budget due to a sudden reduction in future oil revenues.
In actuality they want to coincide this event with the revaluation event. This is why they are holding up the final phase of announcing the budget as completed. This last round of postponements on the final vote convinces me of this even more. Many times already they have been told the USA supported the revaluation and then the USA backs down again on its support.
What do they then keep telling their people? It is getting ridiculous. When a delegation recently visited the USA on this topic Iraq was told then to stop telling their citizens anything. The USA recommendation was just to be quit on the topic of economic reforms. Iraq of course did not agree with this tactic and could not do this since promises have been made and it is already in the minds of the citizens that reform completion is just around the corner. Basically it is too late.
Then there is the USA’s story - In prior conversations with my contacts in the USA they had told me (they were told to tell me this by their managers and did not entirely believe it) that the holdup on the part of the USA was due to Iraq not completing requirements as agreed to as scheduled. This seemed very plausible and so I passed this news on to you. Security was a major concern both in the physical on the ground sense and the political sense. I was told it only seemed like the USA was holding up the RV but in fact it was still Iraq by the very nature of where the country stood in both of these areas of concern.
Do I still believe this now? Absolutely NOT ! Why!
My contacts were telling me the same reasons over and over again for over a month and a half that it was Iraq who was holding up their own RV. Then all of a sudden last week they reversed and said Iraq completed all of their requirements and they are now ready for the RV.
But still we don’t see the RV. I know for a fact they planned to push it out late last week. Once again the USA stopped it.
