12-31-2016   Newshound Guru Islandg1211   [Oliver North was on Fox news last night said that it will take another 3 years to restore Mosul...]  IMO, although, Ollie's, the Pentagon's, and Abadi's comments sound very different as to a time frame for the liberation of Mosul, they aren't. Ollie is saying 3 years. The Pentagon just said 2 years to get rid of ISIS in Iraq. Abadi said by the end of the year, but had to amend that to another 3 months. I'm estimating 3-6 months for Mosul.  The difference of time frames is how one is defining "liberated" verses "secure from terrorist attacks."   [post 1 of 3....stay tuned]

   [Can Iraq go international with their currency before the UNSC meets and officially releases the final two sanctions?]   the assumption the "Iraq can GO international with their currency" is a flawed viewpoint. They need this international support to do such a thing.  Where would Iraq be if no one is willing to accept whatever change they put forth?   ...they will get to do what they get support (and guidance) to do...they succeed thus far - because they are listening and doing.  [Hope the UNSC meets soon to provide the clearance.]  The IMF and WB are much more important - the UNSC will be lucky if they exist in a year or two.
