Calgoldy: American Soldier in Bagdad reports widespread partying in the streets and widespread partying in the streets in Iraq
Copied from Chat as King was sharing a follow-up update from Sunday post:
King wrote: I have an update from our American Soldier contact in Baghdad 1) This is a follow up from my Sunday post regarding the information we were getting from an American Soldier in charge of a command post close to Bagdad
1)--he does get to town and is reporting to his friend what he is witnessing].
2) The following post is a continuation to what we were told on Sunday. He is talking about the area in the city of Bagdad at a place called Morelt’s –a very very busy main thoroughfare area –in an area where there are monuments, a park, and the famous double swords.
3) He reported (on USA Sunday) to his friend that they are putting up a stage and mobile lights and that people were celebrating in the streets. (But the stage and area being blocked off and set up were for a coming celebration).
4) TODAY’S REPORT from the Am. Soldier in Bagdad about this same area in the main thoroughfare area --setting up for some major celebration in Baghdad:
5) “They are still setting up with many work crews. There are lots of work trucks and mobile lights still going up. [for the anticipated celebration/events]. The concrete barricades have been further extended as far as he could see. The set up area is massive.
6) There was a very large protest/ riot because people didn’t get paid at the right amount. They were on an alert bit it later got called off.”
7) Oh and I just got this message that I misunderstood and the name of the square is not accurate
PFox: Banker is honest about dinarland
I talked to a banker who said they in general wouldnt want to be the 'check-cashing store' to the dinarland masses. I think he speaks for a lot of the bankers who feel they would be working overtime just for joe to go spend it all or not leave any on their investment side in the long run.
I think TNT maybe possibly correct in that all banks will weed out unprofitable profiles
some people argue about the 2% fee being some great carrot, but I can assure you they'd make much more spending time and concentrating on their VIP and whale clients.
80/20 rule... remember?
Santa Cl Some say there was last minute changes on a treaty that were reworked and signed off. It also sounds like the TRN"s might be bypassed in order to start the RV.
R.V. / GCR > Santa Cl Correct
geeky gal > Santa Cl So let me get this clear, if we exchange while the current USD is in place, which will go down in value globally as soon as this happens, we will get lots of paper no one wants. So we may need to hold off an exchange till the new TRN is in place, if were not under a tsunami or something..
Beth > Santa Cl I thought the TRN's were a major component. If they are bypassed, what will that mean to the big picture?
R.V. / GCR > Beth IT MEANS WE TRADE INTO A MCA (Multi-currency-Account) UNDER OTHER CURRENCIES
NewEarthNow > R.V. / GCR HI!!! IF TRN'S ARE BYPASSED, are we in for a major currency shock/loss and where would you suggest we put our money?
R.V. / GCR > NewEarthNow LETS NOT WORRY ABOUT WHAT IFS ….THE GOODGUYS GOT THIS…. WATCH...TRUST
R.V. / GCR > December 2, 2014 at 3:19pm Hint we might see this tonight...yes everyone is on high alert now and waiting for the deadline of midnight for certain something to happen if so yippy is homefree...timber
Underdog > R.V. / GCR can we just fast forward to Friday please? This resembles last week and the week before.... just getting tired of our hopes up and let down more than any yoyo in history. my frustration is showing.... sorry.
R.V. / GCR > Underdog THIS WEEK IS DIFFERENT THE USA WAS JUST TOLD ABOUT THE SANCTIONS IT WOULD HAVE TO DEAL WITH IF THIS DONT GO....TIMBER
Down Range > R.V. / GCR I hope they are substantial enough to cause the right action. I am certain we all know what I mean, right?
R.V. / GCR IMO Tonight sweetheart all your dreams come true. Tonight is the night to seeit through....just so you know til we meet again tonight is the night.....i believe it is...happy Timberdays
Ron Burgundy December 2, 2014 at 4:14pm
Ok, let me see if I understand this. For this deal (HCL) to be "DONE" (BOOM), then we need
R.V. / GCR > Ron Burgundy Publish it already. Its been a whole hour since its been finished...Nope its a living document and does not need the council or parliament behind it...just sign it presidents and prime minister
Dr. Mark > Ron Burgundy Let me help clarify Ron. Yes on #1 and #2...the COM drew up the HCL which was approved today
#3&4 are one in the same as far as the process is concerned. Now, let me ask you this Ron. Do you think that the US and the UN would put out worldwide announcements saying the HCL is completed...and its not? Both the US and the UN? Read what Luis posted below on his latest intel.
BOOM I think is the correct terminology.
Mr. Chen December 2, 2014 at 4:32pm
Ok so let's see if we can all put on our thinking caps so we can figure this out. Ron and maybe a few still don't get it.
When was the list time the UN, US, Secretary of State, CNN, etc made an announcement congratulating Iraq?
I think it was when Abadi became Prime Minister of Iraq.
But wasn't that announcement made by the UN, US, Secretary of state, CNN, etc before it was published in Iraq news and maybe even the gazette?
Why yes it was before it was announced in Iraq.
So who exactly is telling who what to do?
[xyz] Mladenov welcomes Baghdad-Erbil oil agreement ..The Special Represnetative of the UN Secretary General, Nickoly Mladenov, hailed the oil agreement between Baghdad and Erbil. /End/ http://www.alliraqnews.com/en/index.php/political-news/61416
[ByGrace] I have been hearing about this step being SO critical for SO long that it is hard for me to understand why everyone cannot see this as a GREAT thing and be happy about it! And yes, I know that we are not DONE until we are at the bank...
DonarTattoo :HEY FRANK IS THIS OFFICIALLY AN ANNOUNCEMENT???
U.S. Congratulates Iraq on Hydrocarbon Agreement
Deputy Department Spokesperson, Office of the Spokesperson

We congratulate the Iraqi and Kurdistan Regional Governments on reaching a broad agreement on revenue management and oil exports originating from the Iraq Kurdistan Region and Kirkuk. This resolution, in line with its constitution, allows all Iraqis to benefit equitably from Iraq’s hydrocarbon sector. This agreement will further strengthen both Iraq’s Federal Government and the Kurdistan Regional Government as they work together to defeat ISIL.
Frank26: It is not a rejection. KTFA, Frank
Blonkster : That looks pretty official to meeeeeeeeee!
Aggiedad77: Good find DinarTattoo
However, I am of the opinion this is not the HCL itself.....IMO....it lacks the compensation to be dedicated to all Iraqis not just the Kurds.....this to me is a HUGE piece of the puzzle though, an agreement of MONUMENTAL size.....PM Abadi and crew are proving...and rather quickly, they can get things done that Maliki could not accomplish in 8 years.
As we see both the Kurds and Baghdad appear to be most happy. Not only is Baghdad getting oil, but the Kurds are getting their share of the pie, and their Peshmerga are going to be paid and recognized as well.
This is all good in a days work for the Iraqis and especially so for the Kurds....it shows great cooperation between the two, but on an even bigger scale it shows TRUST between them...that is a big deal in my book. Aloha Randy
Blinkster: Sir AggieDad, not to quibble whatsoever, but this line from the press release "This resolution, in line with its constitution, allows all Iraqis to benefit equitably from Iraq’s hydrocarbon sector." , indicates, at least to me, that ALL Iraqis will benefit, and, EQUITABLY. In my mind, this is far more broad then just the Kurds.
Whatever the case, it sure is a huge step in the right direction. Bless ya, bro!
Frank26 » KTFA FAMILY ......... AS I TOLD YOU YOUR CC'S ARE COMING TO AN END. TONIGHT I WILL ANNOUNCE THAT YOUR TUESDAY CC INTEL HAS NOW ENDED.
TONIGHT WILL BE YOUR LAST TUESDAY CC WITH INTEL. WILL STILL DO A BIBLE STUDY. WILL TELL YOU TONIGHT WHAT IS REPLACING PART TWO OF TUES CC'S. IT'S TIME.
Aggiedad77: Family......I don't see this as any reason for tears or to be sad.....this announcement is reason to rejoice......Frank wouldn't be doing this if things weren't getting really close....IMO. There should be dancing in the streets I think. Just sayin'
