disciple7: extremely quiet today
chattels: ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — F-16 fighter jets purchased for the Iraqi air force from the US were delivered to Iraq today, according to the office of Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi.
Iraqi Defense Minister Khaled al-Obaidi previously stated that the Balad Airbase 64 kilometers north of Baghdad was ready for receiving the purchased jets. The F-16 is a single engine, all-weather military aircraft.
It was originally developed by General Dynamics before the manufacturer became part of Lockheed Martin after a merger in 1995. Iraq ordered 36 F-16s.
The jets Iraq ordered are F-16IQ Block 52s, which are considered downgrades from the advanced F-16C/D Block 52.
This is seen as part of the US policy of avoiding selling the Iraqi government sophisticated jets capable of using advanced air-to-ground weapons and air-to-air missiles in order to alleviate the fears of regional US allies.
chattels: i wonder how many F-16's the Kurds are getting ?
chattels: i suspect that the only F-16's that they will see are the ones flying in Kurdistan airspace to deliver a payload on the heads of the Kurds

sczin11: Maliki submitted his resignation after the holiday .. and the first reshuffle of the government ousted by al-Abadi "Hoshyar Zebari" Date: 13/07/2015
sczin11: Palm-surprised the political and media circles in Iraq stop the leader of the National Congress and head of the parliamentary finance committee Ahmad Chalabi, the publication of his comments and sometimes (Qfshath) in their profile on the network to communicate the (Facebook) in the last period,
and increased amazed that he deliberately to raise news and topics had published in the last few months and revealed the administrative and financial to a number of ministers and officials managed to enhanced documents obtained deviation own scandals.
Despite the urging of many friends Chalabi and their pressure him to learn the secret of this shift in his position, but he has been procrastinating and invoke that he seeks to renew his page on Facebook,
forcing him to stop publication of his comments and delete the (old) publication where, is that the truth was soon revealed and it turns out The leader of the Supreme Council Ammar al-Hakim and Moqtada al-Sadr were the ones who asked him to calm the atmosphere
and avoid bickering with others in preparation for his appointment as finance minister instead of the current minister, Hoshyar Zebari, in the first amendment to be undertaken by Haider al-Abadi on the current government after the Eid al-Fitr next.
sczin11: In this regard, the information reported in the media about discomfort President Fuad Masum of his deputy Nuri al-Maliki and his agreement with Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to remove him and replace it with the character of the other,
were renewed following the visit of President of the Republic to al-Maliki in his office the evening of the twenty-seventh of last month, where he held two meetings was limited them. Quoting escorts President infallible did not attend the bilateral meeting,
including Minister of Culture Raundozi, the President of the Republic wanted seclusion with al-Maliki and talk to him frankly, away from the spotlight and the audience to convey a picture of the negative repercussions which are reflected in his speeches of sectarianism and his provocative during his visits to the provinces, and attributed to the president,
he said to the owners that the official job as deputy president of the republic stipulate that you must adhere and requirements Position standards in not offend others and avoid libel third party,
referring to the remarks fired by al-Maliki in the twenty-fifth of last month in which he said that a major plot and signed by involving Iraqi and regional parties and international focused on his person and his approach and remove him from the electoral entitlement.
sczin11: According to carpool infallible the latter came out of his meeting with al-Maliki and signs of satisfaction visible on his face, giving the impression that al-Maliki understand the significance of modern president with him and he promised infallible to resign from his post after the Eid al-Fitr for departure to run his affairs (the call),
which began experiencing cracks since commissioning Haider Abadi, headed by the current government in September of last year. On this basis, the road is passable in front of Ibrahim al-Jaafari to leave the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and replace the al-Maliki in on behalf of the Presidency of the Republic,
and would Abadi, which is fed from the Almighty al-Maliki and al-Jaafari him since the formation of the current government has succeeded with the help of the infallible kill two birds with one stone,
it is get rid of al-Maliki and ranting interesting problems and far-Jaafari for the Foreign Ministry, which was not happy where it is thought less of entitlement and not commensurate with his status, and thus the prime minister may be removed from his shoulders Kabussen form a burden to him during the past period.
