chattels: postponed the Iraqi ports, on Tuesday, work tariff revenues, to the twenty - fifth of June this month.
chattels: Let the deflection, dodging and deferral if Iraqi responsibilities begin / continue !
chattels: " the Federal Court should have made up its mind quickly the issue of the House of Representatives because the situation in the country is not likely and therefore should be the next sessions of the Court are critical to this issue and taking into account the part of justice to the fullest extent possible to achieve a state of balance in the path the constitutional process in the country. "

chattels: He accused the deputies of the Federal Court and the political parties in the repeated postponement of the case to "procrastination by it."
chattels: federal police ahead of the four axes toward Fallujah
chattels: "pieces of federal police advanced towards the city of Fallujah of four axes."

chattels: " ............ towards the city."
chattels: " anti - terrorism forces managed to free the second Shuhada neighborhood, and about 90% of the territory of the first Shuhada neighborhood, ..........."
chattels: " al-Abadi told the political blocs to postpone the swearing-in of new ministers until the end of the battle of Fallujah and the parliamentary crisis "
chattels: There is the possibility that the parliamentary crisis could be resolved by agreement of the political blocs which would obviate the need for a judicial determination. Certainly " healing " is important even if the crisis must be resolved by the Federal Court therefore it is preferable for the political blocs to make a constructive resolution by agreement.
There is news today that the high court may be procrastinating on a decision to allow / encourage just such an end or a " new beginning " and resumption of reform measures.
Court decisions empower the " winner " and alienate the " looser ". Iraq needs a consensus for reform born of a common vision and purpose in the near and longer term.
Whether Fallujah will be fully liberated in the next several weeks is another question.
The ISF appear to still be " stuck " on the outskirts and neighborhoods of the city centre. Many observers believe that the hardest fighting remains to be done in urban Fallujah.
There are reports of considerable numbers of civilians remaining in " downtown " Fallujah and the land mines / booby traps may be more severe at the center of town.
My conclusion is that it is very unlikely that there will be any parliamentary business accomplished until at the earliest in July. Is parliamentary approval necessary to meet the conditions attendant to the IMF loans ? Not sure. We wait and see. Nothing is certain in Iraq.
chattels: On a positive note, the Iraqi cabinet did obtain a quorum today and all Kurdish ministers were in attendance.
chattels: Also, there appears to be implementation / progress ion the anti - laundering law by the CBI and general banking reform.
chattels: Godspeed the completion of the Iraqi banking sector reform project.

All you need to know By Brian Wheeler & Alex Hunt BBC News 7 hours ago A referendum is being held on Thursday, 23 June, to decide whether Britain should leave or remain in the European Union.
Ononotagain: In My Humble Opinion; After watching the video posted by OOTW last week www.youtube.com/watch I began to think they might not try to take Mosul now.
Taking a territory is not enough, in the video it is shown that without education and opportunity, things will not change. The public uprising must come from within the community to achieve peace...
This can only be done with a change in their living conditions, and opportunity. ... If they were to enact their economic plans now, they would most likely keep all the land they have recovered, win the hearts of the people, rally and finish the job. I'm being an optimist tonight... Haha
