StephenMac63:  Some thoughts,

Much has been achieved even to the point of the GOI submitting monies to various ministries via electronic debit instead of the old-fashion way of sending pallets of cash and expecting the best.

The monies sent to retirees, again, debit card, no chance of pilferage.

You see articles that inform us that Kurdistan and Baghdad are to participate in a conference.....do you actually believe they would be hanging out together if there was a threat of internal strife?

We know Kurds cant go anywhere, the international world basically said "Knock it off". If there were forces entering Kurdistan, guess what, they can......why? Because there is no country called Kurdistan, its a self-proclaimed territory in the outbacks by a tribe that claim to have it's own government. Guess what.....they are Iraqi, its on Iraq land.
There are several ways to see this....one, we know that the majority of the public are just reactionary to what we are fed by the media. Example, the articles relating to Kurd/Baghdad situation. How do we know there is a situation?

Because its what it is reported in the media?

Who controls the media? Of course its controlled, and for a reason. Who is controlling it? Obviously someone that has a reason to. What is the reason? Only thing I come up with that makes any sense to me is......Timing.

Timing of what? Well we know that if we look back at the events that have happened in Iraq since 2003 we can see a pattern, at least I do. The pattern is also demonstrated by the Sunni, Shiite, Kurds. The pattern is that each of the "factions" do one thing at a time, one item then the next, they have a situation that follows a situation. I havent seen where two situations happen at the same time with the same faction.

Example......A few months ago we all were looking at little maps of Green Liberated Areas relating to the progress of the Iraqi Army efforts to rid of ISIS. I call this the "Left Hand". Its a show. Its what is portrayed in the media.

During that time the Kurds had a wonderful opportunity to have a 'referendum". I know first hand that what was demonstrated as "News" when it was presented is not factual because when the article spoke of the forces finally entering the Grand Mosque....please, the forces were in there a few months before that because a video was leaked and several folks in KTFA saw the very same raised podium where Al Baghdadi made his proclomation. Its a show.

There is always one event after another that causes an action and a reaction in Iraq....but ya know, you never see two events happening at the same time, except for repports of various battles with ISIS but thats just about done.....according to who? The media.

I personally see aside from what is being presented....you may watch the show, the actors, the lighting, the expressions, even follow the storyline........I see the fact that there is a show going on but I question...."Ok, who gains what from this, why are they doing this, what is not being concentrated on.

I personally am smiling because of the fact that there is a reason this show is being put on. What better way for Abadi to demonstrate that he has the ability to govern the country? To show that he has control of it.

I love it, I cant wait for the next act.

10-16-2017  Guest Guru BobTheTaxMan  Questions: “When do I know when to exchange?  Where’s the rate going to be when I feel ok to do it?”  Now we do know from all of our previous investigations that the CBI plans on/love to get back up to the $3 plus range somewhere in the near future.  We don’t know when that is going to be or how that’s going to look.  We don’t even know when it’s going to start.  My invitation to you is, take a step back.  Be realistic.  You need to consider your age.  You need to consider how much you have.  You need to consider your planning for taxes.  You need to consider your legacy.  What is it you want to accomplish with this windfall when it comes your direction.  You need to consider how’s that going to affect your family…[Post 1 of 2 Stay tuned]

10-16-2017   Newshound Guru chattels  "Iraqi PM appoints an ARab governor for Kirkuk Haider al-Abadi, prime minister of Iraq has appointed an Arab politician named Rakan Saeed to replace Najmaldin Karim as the governor of Kirkuk."   Abadi is doing what he has to do politically to survive by acting upon the pressure upon him from hardline Shia political actors in Baghdad...   ...and we have a conflict and controversy over the right of a state to secede from a union.   There has been controversy over the Kurdistani flag being flown in Kirkuk for some time. Flying the Iraqi flag by Abadi is symbolic of the will of Baghdad being enforced.  Abadi flying the Iraqi flag has nothing to do with a truce. It is his way of declaring dominion and control. Mission accomplished according to him.

10-16-2017   Intel/Newshound Guru payray   Article:  "Iraqi Airways signs MoU with Saudi counterpart"  Quote:  "The Iraqi Civil Aviation Authority announced on Monday the signing of a memorandum of understanding with the Saudi side in the framework of joint cooperation between Iraq and the General Authority for Civil Aviation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. And why bother doing this is Iraq is a wreck, and not worth investing time, and money in?...

10-16-2017   Newshound Guru chattels   Article:  "Iraqi Vice President Ayad Allawi warned on Monday there could be a “civil war” over the Kurdish-administered city of Kirkuk if talks over Kurdish independence are left unresolved."   The US has no control and minimal influence upon the Shia Parliament in Baghdad. Which is why Barzani wanted ironclad commitments from Baghdad with international support and not more promises only from the US diplomatic corp.  Barzani may be wrong, but he is not insane.   He is not going to do the same thing and expect a different result.    [I cannot help but feel the whole thing is orchestrated!]  There is some belief that it is orchestrated, but...I do not believe that Iraq is risking civil war to orchestrate a liquidity event for us or disguise a revalue of their currency.

10-16-2017   Intel/Newshound Guru payray   There is so much going on behind the scenes... The puppeteers are pulling the right strings in order to bring out a desired outcome... Watch, and see...   Most who are involved in the orchestration do not know they are being used... Only the major players, and of course those behind the scenes... Everything is fine folks...  Are they still having meetings, and Alak is going to Washington as THE Governor of the CBI... That is substantial IMHO... NO longer the "fill in", or intermediate... [post 2 of 2

DinarResearcher: The last chance to save Iraq from an inevitable collapse. 10/15/2017

DinarResearcher: What is the solution?

DinarResearcher: Global reports indicate that oil prices are stable and even partially raised until 2021-2022, four to five years from now, after which oil prices will drop abruptly and consumption will fall rapidly.

DinarResearcher:  When I was Minister of Communications, I submitted an integrated study in 2011 to Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and sent copies to the Secretariat and all the governors in all governorates to develop the private sector and attract young people and graduates to work within their own projects and not rely on oil resources.

But this study was neglected and nothing was implemented except the provision of soft loans to the industrial and agricultural sector by the Central Bank in 2015, but this will not be effective and achieves a real renaissance of the country if not within the integrated plan presented in the above study.

DinarResearcher: In 2012, it agreed with Booz Allen, the global consultant, to conduct an integrated study to develop the Ministry of Communications and identify the weaknesses and turn them into a joint profit organization as a mixed sector that will serve as an example to be followed by other ministries.

The project of the Smart City, the project of the Smart City, the project of the central cable connecting Europe and the East of the globe, and a great profit.

The project of the gates of access which has earned the ministry more than 60 million dollars annually, and the project of important information centers in Baghdad and several other provinces, as well as the security project for the security of Baghdad and the security of the Iraqi-Syrian border, but all these plans neglected after the Turkish Ministry where Such plans do not give the ministry's officials special benefits to them, their basic understanding is corruption to achieve their personal interests.

DinarResearcher: In more than one television program at the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014, I have been alerting to the increase in world oil production on global consumption, which means the fall in oil prices, depending on World Bank reports and other global reports; oil prices have already fallen in mid-2014, But if there was a sense of responsibility from the rulers at that time,

it would move to develop an economic policy to diversify sources of income to reduce dependence on oil, but to devise a practical and effective plan to build a solid economy that does not depend on oil, as so many countries in the world do not own oil? I can say with confidence that this could have been achieved in full if true intention, sincerity, efficiency and a well thought out and feasible economic plan were found !!!

DinarResearcher: She has put forward solutions in several television programs and articles she wrote and published in the media in 2015 and 2016 on how to put in place a sound monetary policy to reduce loans, but there was no sense of responsibility for those in charge.

The debt to Iraq to date is about 120 billion dollars, The Iraqi government more than 60 billion dollars for the years 2015, 2016 and 2017 and now will owe more than 20 billion dollars for the year 2018, how will we pay these loans and benefits ?!

 There are some defenders who claim that we will repay this debt from the rise of world oil prices! These statements are just fantasies, sadly modern in the valley and it is their hands to take over things in another valley. 
DinarResearcher: This is not my own analysis, but global economic studies; however, we still have four to five years to set the economic policy to diversify sources of income and not rely on resources Only oil, to promote the country industrial and agricultural and all other productive fields, which are many and can generate income to offset the budget deficit with ease with the need to bring about a revival in the private sector and develop it and open the doors of foreign investment,

but what I fear is not the existence of economic policy wrong and incorrect for the country , It is to Unfortunately, they do not even understand the meaning or definition of the term "economic policy". We have not heard from them the features, plans and objectives to be achieved to formulate a sound economic policy.

And correct for the advancement of the country to get it out of the quagmire of the economic crises that are beset by today and to save it from an unknown and dangerous future and far more dangerous than the economic reality that is deteriorating today. I can say with all confidence that it will be our best chance to save our country from inevitable collapse.

DinarResearcher: We hope that this situation will change for the better in what is coming from the days, so it is not far away from God.

Hoss: @chattels everything lacks legitamacy with these guys

chattels: " For the same reason that no action is taken in relation to the vast majority of the points of contention between Iraq’s ruling parties (including the oil and gas law, the formation of a second chamber of parliament, etc.). The distance between the parties is too great, they are lazy, and have very little experience in successful negotiations.

Finally, the distance between the ruled and the rulers is so great in Iraq that the various components of government and parliament do not feel that they are under any obligation to reach an agreement on any of these outstanding issues. They would all prefer to wait for years without making any concessions rather than work to reach an agreement that would be beneficial to the people. The people’s interests are never part of the equation."

chattels: " .......... they are lazy, ..."

chattels: " ............... the distance between the ruled and the rulers is so great in Iraq that the various components of government and parliament do not feel that they are under any obligation to reach an agreement on any of these outstanding issues."

Hoss: they should ALL be hung for treason

chattels: Government in Iraq os so corrupt that the status quo favors the " rulers ".

chattels: " ............ judges are heavily reliant on the government’s security forces for their own protection, and in an intensively violent context, that exposes them to several opportunities for pressure."

bunny: just a thought ! lol
​chattels: " The constitution does not even make an attempt to explain how the prime minister should relate to the minister of defense, and what each should be responsible for. Under our constitutional system, legislation should have been passed to clarify this issue, but needless to say, nothing has been done about this since 2005."

chattels: " Normally, the minister of defense would be the political figurehead of the military, and the minister would operate and issue instructions with the parliament’s approval. That would have been far preferable in Iraq given that the parliament, in case of partisan abuse of the armed forces, would have been able to withdraw confidence from the minister of defense without causing for the entire government to fall. That option doesn’t exist under the current system sadly."

chattels: " The parliament has several problems. The first is that the federal supreme court, which is responsible for interpreting the constitution, and whose decisions are binding, has essentially been captured by the government."

chattels: " Since 2010, the Court has essentially not issued a single decision that does not favor the government. At the government’s instigation, the Court has issued a number of decisions that have heavily limited the parliament’s powers. Amongst other things, the Court has found that legislation must first be approved by the government before it can be voted on.

The parliament has therefore been reduced to the status of a rubber stamp institution. The Court also found that parliament cannot question ministers unless evidence of a specific crime has been found. The impact of that decision was essentially to remove all political responsibility from the government vis a vis the parliament."

chattels: " A second problem is that the parliament’s political divisions also prevented the parliament to act against the government and to withdraw confidence. Since 2005, there has been a very negative practice of forming governments of national unity, according to which virtually every party that has any parliamentary representation is represented in some form in government.

That practice makes it very difficult to muster enough support to withdraw confidence from government given that parties that would otherwise not be in government and that are not particularly ideological (to put it mildly) have a direct and personal interest in seeing the government survive. Accountability is made very difficult under such circumstances."

chattels: " A third problem is that the parliament’s internal divisions have seriously impaired its effectiveness."

chattels: " Finally, and this is something that is well known to anyone who has spent any time working on this issue, the parliament is populated by incompetent and lazy MPs who have been unable to organize themselves in a convincing fashion since 2006. " , .................... " ........ the 2005-2010 parliament, and found its work ethic very problematic. Contacts of mine within the parliament have complained that the current parliament is even worse than its predecessor.

The government is obviously not much better, but governments always have the upper hand against parliaments around the world and that is even more the case when parliamentarians spend more time in the cafeteria than working."

Hoss: @chattels I'm was laready depressed enough as it was
Hoss: @chattels already

chattels: " ........... incompetent and lazy MPs ................... spend more time in the cafeteria than working."

xyz: 'lazy MPs' :laugh

Hoss: @chattels hung for treason ... AlL of them

chattels: @Hoss Sorry. It is not pretty.

Hoss: @chattels and it's not getting fixed

chattels: @Hoss No, maybe the system needs to fall apart and be corrected with a civil war.

Hoss: @chattels that could take decades

chattels: @Hoss Talk about the need to " drain the swamp ".

chattels: KIRKUK, Kurdistan Region – The Iraqi forces and mainly Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi have started to move towards the Peshmerga controlled areas south and west of Kirkuk Monday night, Iraqi and Kurdish officials have Clashes have erupted on the Taza Khurmatu front, south of Kirkuk, a Peshmerga commander told Rudaw, with both sides exchanging fire involving heavy weaponry.

Shalal Abdul, mayor of Khurmatu, some 75 km south of Kirkuk, told Rudaw that while they chose to not to return fire from the ****e Hashd al-Shaabi on previous days, they have chosen on Monday to fight back when the two sides exchanged fire. The objectives for the Iraqi advances are the K-1 military base, the Kirkuk airport and the oil fields that are under Kurdish control south and west of Kirkuk, the Kurdistan Security Council stated.

chattels: Kurdish President Masoud Barzani, also commander-in-chief of all Kurdish armed forces, has ordered all Peshmerga units to not initiate a war with the Iraqi forces, but if attacked, then they are given “green light to use every power” to fight against the advancing forces, Hemin Hawrami, a senior assistant to President Barzani said.

Dave: I simply wait for confirmation from other sources before I believe anything coming out of Iraq you could be very well right

chattels: @Dave AS I said, I am waiting as well. Just posting from reliable sources in my observation.
chattels: BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi Vice President Ayad Allawi warned on Monday there could be a “civil war” over the Kurdish-administered city of Kirkuk if talks over Kurdish independence are left unresolved.


chattels: Allawi, a former prime minister, said any move by the country’s Popular Mobilization Front militias, which include the Asaib al-Haq, to enter Kirkuk would “damage all possibilities for unifying Iraq” and open the door to “violent conflict.”

chattels: Fmr Turkish PM suggests implementation of Article 140 to resolve Kirkuk impasse By Rudaw http://www.rudaw.net/english/middleeast/turkey/15102017
​chattels: ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - The former prime minister of Turkey has presented a project including the implementation of Article 140 of the Iraqi Constitution to resolve tensions soaring in Kirkuk between Erbil and Baghdad over the independence referendum vote which included the multi-ethnic city claimed by both the Iraqi central and Kurdish governments.

chattels: Davutoglu in his project suggests that “all outcomes of the September 25 referendum, including the status of Kirkuk in this framework, should be frozen to allow negotiations.”

chattels: Davutoglu rejects “unilateral acts” by the Kurdistan Region in Kirkuk on one hand, and “military movements around the city” by Baghdad on the other as means to resolve the Kirkuk dispute. Davutoglu believes that “today's political realities require a special arrangement of this city for a permanent settlement. This special arrangement can be achieved through a separate status for Kirkuk within the territorial integrity of Iraq.”

chattels: He added that the negotiations to resolve the Kirkuk impasse have to be “under the auspices of the UN” and other Iraqi parties.

chattels: The Iraqi PM has called on the Kurdish leadership to administer the disputed areas in a joint manner with the Iraqi government until Article 140 of the Iraqi Constitution that concerns the fate of the disputed areas is implemented.

Meatball: @txbrand the danger of skinny jeans lol

chattels: My problem with Iraq’s 2005 constitution and the system that it provides is that it was designed not with good governance in mind, but based on a desire to allow Iraq’s “ethno-sectarian communities” to protect themselves from each other.

It is a text that reinforces the mentality of separation and fear, and not one that encourages reconciliation and progress. The 2005 constitution allows for Iraq’s provinces to merge together and form larger regions that can essentially govern themselves almost entirely.

That was a recipe for disaster and thankfully that system was never adopted. Al-Maliki’s first government, which was formed in 2006, refused to implement the constitution because it found that the system of government that is provided for was so problematic. The problem with that decision is that it left us without an alternative set of rules to govern our country – no constitutional system to guide our country.


chattels: In an ideal world, my preference would be for more authority to be granted to provincial authorities, but under current circumstances that would probably be a disaster. Corruption is already astronomically high in the country –

the more you decentralize, the more difficult it becomes for anti-corruption and audit institutions to oversee contracting and implementation of major projects at a local level. Under current circumstances, corruption would therefore likely increase in the short term, which is something that I am very concerned about.

chattels: The current legislative framework heavily favors incumbents (particularly those that are in control of ministries). There is no political party legislation to speak of, and so parties are under no obligation to report any of the income or any of the expenditure. They don’t even have to pretend.

It’s been more than ten years now, and the ruling parties are now deeply entrenched in the state. They have developed sophisticated methods to steal vast sums of money; they have business interests throughout the country; they have television channels, websites, various media outlets; they have developed important patronage networks as well. It would be difficult to imagine that a group of people that does not have access to that type of money and influence could really represent an electoral threat to the ruling parties.

chattels: in any event – if a new coalition of Iraqis were to find a way to represent a real electoral threat to the current ruling elites, then those people better learn to defend themselves, because the politicians will not go down without a fight. Literally.

Meatball: one big powder keg waiting to go off

chattels: A parting comment / criticism of the latest gaffe from the " Bombastic Golfer Guru ": to wit, Newshound/Intel Guru BGG Article: "Reveal the contents of Tilerson’s message to Barzani ahead of the referendum" When you really dig into what Tillerson and the US offered Barzani to step off this “vote” and quit stirring everyone up...

it becomes quite clear NONE OF THIS was about what is best for the Kurdish people,

but what is best for BARZANI. OMG!! They gave him the keys to the KINGDOM!! They pretty much offered him the WHOLE PACKAGE. UN, IMF, World support, independence (of sorts), revenue – JUST UNREAL!!
chattels: What " BGG " does not understand, IMO, is that the US can offer to do lots of things and it has at various times since 2003, but unable to deliver.

chattels: The US has no control and minimal influence upon the Shia Parliament in Baghdad.

chattels: Which is why Barzani wanted ironclad commitments from Baghdad with international support and not more promises only from the US diplomatic corp.

chattels: The US has sold out or failed to deliver on promises to the KUrds on several occassions.

Spectra: Wow yeh one big power keg waiting to go off ,Yippie right??????? :nuts:

chattels: Barzani may be wrong, but he is not insane. He is not going to do the same thing and expect a different result.

Spectra: Is that all you can say ? I say I'm going to bed maybe this nightmare will be over in the morning !

Meatball: Yippie? like you got any control over things over there

Spectra: No but I certainly am not shy about my feelings .

Meatball: who cares about those?

Spectra: I cannot help but feel the whole thing is orchestrated !
Spectra: My senses never have proven me wrong yet, in serious matters

Meatball: lol

chattels: THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like ***, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. - Thomas Paine

Restored Republic via GCR, 16 Oct

. Oct. 15 2017 4:17 pm EDT GCR Intel Alert: Operation Disclosure GCR/RV Intel Alert for October 15, 2017 https://operatondisclosure.blogspot.com/

1. The final push has begun and as Trump put it, this is the "Calm before the Storm."

2. The current release date is Oct. 18, although an earlier release date is possible.

3. The release date depends on the current state of affairs and situation with the Cabal.

4. The USNs have been issued to every bank and the USD will be replaced in a heartbeat.

5. This can literally pop at any moment


B. Oct. 15 2017 1:51 pm EDT TNT Weekend Update:

1. This weekend on Iraqi TV, CBI's Alaq and others, along with PM Abadi, referenced that a full Iraq liberation was coming soon.

2. Daesh was surrendering at record volumes in the two remaining provinces.

3. Al-Rafidain (Rafi) bank continued to promote use of their international MasterCard.

4. The Kurds had a new arrangement that should be presented Wed. Oct. 18.

5. At the conclusion of Mon. Oct. 16's meeting, things should become more transparent.


C. Oct. 15 2017 3:25 am EDT Human Angel Services Call, Yosefhttps://events.iteleseminar.com/?eventID=102306171 (Intel starts around 5 min in)

1. The actual US Note has been part of the Law of the Republic of the United States since 1862. At the time it was convertible to gold and silver.

2. There was only two hundred million allowed of this USN and they stopped printing it in 1928.

3. The US Dollar (USD) also known as the Federal Reserve Note (FRN) - that was not collaterized, gold or asset backed, - went into circulation in 1933. In other words, the US has been bankrupt since 1933.

4. The USD-FRN ended on Oct. 1 and because the notes had no value they began taking them out of circulation by burning them.

5. On Oct. 13 the Federal Reserve began issuing the gold/asset backed USN in $100 and $50 denominations. Other denominations were to follow.

6. As of Oct. 13 Tier 1 banks were circulating the USN. The new notes were smaller and different colored. Tellers have been trained to educate the general public on the asset-backed value of the USN.

7. The US Note (USN) was depicted with red seal and red serial numbers. The FRN (the bills currently in your wallet until Friday Oct. 20) has a green seal and a green serial number.

8. The new USN currency is coming out of a Federal or National money supply through the engraving and printing services of the United States Treasury

9. With the USNs out that meant that we were on the other side of the RV. We have returned to the gold standard, meaning release of the 800 numbers was imminent.

10. The 800 numbers for exchange appointments at Sovereign or negotiated rates would be out for a short period of time and available through the web, email or by phone contact.

11. The 800#’s were going to be linked to 800# pages. You’re not going to be able to cut and paste any of that, but you can write it down, text it, send it out to email. The 800#s would then go away after a period of time and the 800#’s will change.

12. There would be 10-12 different stations at the Redemption Centers where your currency exchange would be processed.

13. (It was rumored that at one of those stations you would pay off all your outstanding debt).

14. They’ll give you a black card, VISA and MasterCard – all sorts of stuff.

15. Sovereign Currency Rates (on a structured payout):

16. You could go for Sovereign rates or ask for negotiated rates and go into a structured payout program. It’s really a blank check and whatever you feel comfortable taking and managing,

17. You would be set up for a secondary exchange appointment for a later date where you could consult with money managers & Family Office personnel such as accountants, lawyers, etc.

18. Police and military oversight on your exchange would be extensive.

19. It would likely take you 30 to 45 min. to exchange, then you would be ushered to your car and tracked by CPS on your phone and car until you returned safely home.

20. Public exchanges (at screen rates, not sovereign or negotiated rates) would start sometime thereafter and take place at a bank to go until the end of Nov.

21. Those rates will be much lower but they’ll still be very competitive.

22. You can redeem ZIM at Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, City Bank. The difference is you won’t get the Sovereign rate, nor the private redemptions screen rates. You’ll get a much lower rate but it will still be something for your trouble. Then you can go into traditional interest-bearing products with the Bank and there won’t be any big-time structured investment payouts for you.

23. If you go to a sovereign currency exchange appointment with a criminal past, outstanding warrants, been part of the Cabal, or have caused problems with this GCR/RV, you would be ushered to a certain location where you would be arrested and incarcerated. You won't be allowed to redeem. That is what was meant by ‘chalked.’

24. This Do No Harm to the People of Our Sovereign Nation policy would continue after the RV. RV accounts would be closed for anyone found guilty of violating the Do No Harm policy.

Don961:  For the first time since 2003, an Arab governor of Kirkuk

16-10-2017 02:36 PM

The Euphrates -

For the first time since 2003, Abbadi orders the appointment of Rakan Said al-Abbadi, governor of Kirkuk.   link


James123:  Would welcome Franks opinion on Kurds as the entire world is now speaking of a civil war on the horizon as an outcome from the referendum. This is clearly an issue that is not going away quietly and could prove to be the next in a long line of obstacles of not only giving us what we all are on here waiting for,  but hope for the people of Iraq to emerge from the dark and devastating last 20 years of despair.

Dr. Dinar: You could see the writing on the wall when Abadi handled the situation the way he did. They have a third of their country who is not happy with the central govt., so much so that they want to secede completely....and Abadi's response to try to smooth things over and bring Iraq together is to immediately take over all the aiports, border crossings, oil fields etc....how does that approach NOT begin a civil war?

Wes101:  After Kim Clement prophesied "when things seem at its worst, I will bring it forth", concerning the RV, the clashes last night between the Peshmerga army and the Iraqi army is what I have been waiting to see.

 I felt in my spirit there would be some form of "civil war", that would either give the US a reason to step in an force the RV to bring a peace deal, or it would appear to be civil war to cause the citizens to dump what remaining dinar they hold for USD and then an RV.

Either way, this had to happen and now I feel it's really opened the door for an RV, for this is the worst case scenario and we ought to be excited, for God's ways are not like man's ways...  Go RV!

Frank26:  Monday is here .............. Amazing how time goes by ................... Amazing will Your MONDAY CC be.
Except for TWO ............ FRIDAY CC was kept undercover pretty well for tonight.
SATURDAY Q AND A on TEAM CHAT also went very well to the point that CINDERELLA will post the 2 hour event at 8 pm est tonight.
So that it can serve the purpose of further guidance for tonight's MONDAY CC.
C u on Your M CC in ................ 8 ............... Aloha Ohana KTFA \m/

Don961:  the International Alliance declares "truth" what is happening in Kirkuk and indicates a "misunderstanding" led to a clash

 Twilight News     44 minutes ago

The International Alliance said it was aware of developments in the province of Kirkuk and called on the parties to dialogue to resolve the forms.

"We are following the movements of military and military vehicles in the vicinity of Kirkuk, and so far these movements are coordination movements and not attacks," a coalition statement said.
"Coalition forces and advisers do not support any activity of the Iraqi government or Kurdistan Regional Government near Kirkuk, but they are aware of reports of a limited exchange of fire during the early hours of the day," he said.

"We believe that the clash that took place was the result of a misunderstanding and not deliberate by some parties within the scope of limited vision at the time."

The International Alliance strongly urged the parties to avoid escalation.

"We continue to advocate dialogue between the Iraqi and Kurdish authorities and call on all parties to focus on defeating our common enemy in Iraq," said Major General Robert White,commander-in-chief of the Ground Forces Command in the Joint Task Force.    link
