    As to Turkey's role in Iraq, America can punish the Turks with sanctions, that's true. However, America also has carrots for Turkey, as well as sticks: America can also use it's influence to reward Turkish financial interests in Iraq. Such as: Turkey has some of the biggest construction firms in the Middle East, such as The Agaoglu Group. It will take a massive effort to re-build Iraq. The Turks can make a lot of money helping to re-build Iraq, if things work out. The Chinese are already on-board. This can work. By America pulling back from protecting the Kurds in Syria, it sends a message to the Kurds in Iraq. This has practical implications for the Kurds in Iraq. The message is pretty loud and clear, if you follow the region: America no longer is protecting your interests. This forces the hand of the Kurds in Iraq. They have to quit being a pain in the neck, forget about having an independent country, not gonna happen. The background is: because there are Kurds in Iran as well as Turkey, as well as Syria and Iraq, when America doesn't have the backs of the Kurds in Syria, that's a strong message on American intentions in Kurdistan in Northern Iraq. The message for students of history: No one at this point is going to re-draw the map of the Middle East. Those days are gone, by about 100 year, since the Sykes-Picot Agreement redrew the political lines in the area. Obviously that agreement was flawed, it left out the Kurds, didn't give them a homeland. That's a shame. However: It's too late for them now. Kurds have to make peace with Baghdad and the other leaders in countries with Kurds. So no, the Kurds are SOL....America won't back you anymore, for your new Kurdistan Dream..... Is America just being a jerk? No, the reason is practical: The reason is, we don't need the oil in the Middle East any more, so we're leaving. Too bad, Kurds..... Make peace with your neighbors, your dreams of a homeland were squashed by American innovation on fracking oil, which means we don't need ME oil, so Kurdish dreams of a homeland were just killed permanently by both technical innovation combined with foresighted political leadership by President Trump, who as per usual, is miles ahead of everyone on political vision. So to the Kurds America is saying: make peace with the rest of Iraq, pass the oil law, revalue your currency, open up to the world. Then you'll make a lot of money. Don't want to, Kurds? Then I don't care. Talk to the hand and go fight the Turks, fight Baghdad. Not America's problem any more.

    Good morning Dinarvets! I didn't title this thread "weekly" because it's probably not going to be the "official weekly" update... this is more of a "drive by". I mentioned recently that I have a favorite daily newsletter - it's called "the brew" (you can get it free at that link), and this morning they nailed a lot of topics that were already on my mind. I figured it would be worth making an appearance for these topics, so here we go! Amongst the topics... Trump/Syria/Turkey/Kurds: This one is a little complicated, so let's break it down. It was announced last week that we are withdrawing US troops from Syria, which led to talk of Turkey ramping up attacks on the Kurds, finger pointing at Trump because he's bailing on the Kurds when we are supposed to be babysitting them, Trump responds by saying if Turkey steps out of line we will hit them in the wallet, and here on DinarVets we're all like "wait what about the Iraqi Dinar?!" WHEW! That was a mouthful First, I'll quote The Brew - they said it well enough: Next, let's identify "the Kurds" - I'll quote a part of this WaPo article that gives a good explanation: So, this current news cycle we are reading and hearing about involving "the Kurds" isn't specifically about Iraqi Kurds, but the events unfolding right now are going to do one very significant thing with regards to Iraq... a message is being sent. I'm not saying I approve or disapprove of the tactics, or the decision to withdraw troops, or the decision to put them there in the first place. But what's happening right now is irrefutable evidence that the US of A has a huge influence in the Middle East, the affairs of the Middle East, and therefore... the Iraqi economy, which includes the trade value of the Dinar. What this sets up in the near future is the confidence and assurance that with the US on their side, Iraq can make changes, improvements, and progress. What happened to Turkey in the past, and may happen very soon again, can happen to Iraq. The same is true of the inverse... where we can inflict severe harm, we can also support massive gain. (GO RV!) ================ Politics... Elizabeth Warren has been running ads accusing Facebook CEO Zuckerberg of supporting Trump in the last election, and her ads specifically state that the accusation may not be true. Read that again if you need to ================ Speaking of Facebook, their cryptocurrency Libra lost a ton of backers... PayPal among them, followed by Visa, Mastercard, Stripe, eBay, and Mercado Pago. Tim Apple also stated a "hard no" on an Apple Crypto, which opens up a lot of room for discussion on the future of BTC. My take is that BTC lost a serious potential competitor with Apple pulling out of the game for the moment. Tim's reasoning for not wanting to get involved in crypto actually supports the argument that crypto is destined for success - feel free to chime in on that one! I have a feeling that the recent release of the Apple credit card has more to do with their current stance on "AppleCoin" than anything else. Either way, BTC seems to have stopped pulling back on price and is poised to move up again. I'm keeping a watch on it. =============== That bit about crypto wasn't in the brew's email this morning, but they did mention bank profits... or rather, the decline in bank profits. Quoting again: I'll add a bit to that... banks aren't going to lose money when there is the option of negative interest. Negative interest is when the banks charge you to keep money in the bank, and what kind of impact do you think THAT will have on Crypto? To the moon, baby! 🚀 #HODL =================== That's enough for the Monday morning drive by... Happy Columbus day! ( Sorry, couldn't help myself!) - Adam

    I feel your pain and understand your point. Adam does not need my defense, but I have found that he functions from the belief that there are always opportunities for profit, and you should not put yourself in a position of depending on one thing. Also, as a Christian, even through times of being 'in a dry and thirsty land', God is your source and joy is your strength. Don't look to man and don't allow offense.

    With the fragility of world affairs today, both politically and economically, the possibility of a complete financial collapse (or at the very least a strong pullback) could be around the corner. Cryptocurrency is, if nothing else, a good insurance plan. Everyone should have a little invested. Thanks for the post Adam

    To Stanleypower and Adam Montana, although we have wonderful senses of humor, some of us being actors and comedians by trade, there are those of us struggling to put food on the table having waited over 10 years for the RV. A few of us weren't sure you were joking around about Friday at 3. Nerves are frayed, life is tough and when you're looking, Hoping and praying for a Miracle, that kind of joking.is actually mean. So, please be more professional and please be kind to the rest of us that are struggling while we wait. Thank you and God bless you.

    Quote: "And if this president doesn’t understand their importance, if this president doesn’t demonstrate the leadership that America needs, both domestically and abroad, then it is time for a new person in the Oval Office — Republican, Democrat or independent — the sooner, the better. The fate of our Republic depends upon it." I love how these never Trumpers insinuate that President Trump is so evil, so immoral, that something needs to be done right now to remove him from office. TRUMP-RUSSIA COLLUSION GATE, UKRAINE GATE, STORMY DANIELS GATE, NORTH KOREA MADMAN GATE...get over the idea that some Impeachment Hearing for some manufactured 'GATE' will bring down this President. The Democrat Clown Car Party is your only hope for beating this president at the 2020 Presidential Election, and right now things are not looking very good for the Democrat Clown Car Party to even field a viable candidate to beat President Trump. Pocahontas...not likely! Sleepy, handsy, Ol'e Joe Biden...nope, to much Scandal with his son Hunter Biden! Bernie Sanders...not after his heart attack! The Democrat Clown Car Is Broken And Only Steers LEFT! Indy

    Thanks Adam! I agree about crypto..... Please educate yourselves about the plan to “level the playing field” as it relates to the US dollar as the global reserve currency. I believe it ties in with this China trade deal. Japan has also just signed trade agreements as it relates to Digital Assets..... not all are created equal. RTGS (Real Time Global Settlements) is the future and I believe it hinges at this point on XRP Currently .29 cents has been as high as $3.84 in peak of the bull market in late 2017-18. IMO it will become the global bridge asset to tie all these RTGS currencies together similar to gold but settles in seconds. Please do your research. Lots of change in the air for those that have truly been following the markets. Federal Reserve has been pumping 60-100 billion a day into the repo markets and treasury markets trying to keep the global economy afloat. That liquidity has to go somewhere! Hope we are close Adam

    Trump: Sanctions are coming against Turkey, but we will not intervene militarily 14 October 2019 02:54 PM From: Sally Ismail Direct: US President Donald Trump said that Kurdish forces may release some members of the organization Daesh to force the United States to intervene in the region, but hinted that there are potential sanctions against Turkey. "We will not fight another war between those who have been fighting each other for nearly 200 years," the president wrote in a tweet on his Twitter account on Monday, referring to Turkey and the Kurds. Turkey began a military operation in northeastern Syria last week after Washington withdrew its forces from the region . Trump said Europe had a chance to get ISIS prisoners but did not want the cost, saying they preferred the principle of "let the United States pay." Trump said the Kurds might release some ISIS members in order to get the United States to intervene. He said it was very easy for Turkey or the European countries from which many come from to reunite their families but they should move quickly. Trump said: "There are big sanctions await Turkey!", Wondering: "Do people really think that we should fight a war with NATO member Turkey?".

    What ever we were doing before and after obamma is the answer. Bringing back jobs and reopen the crazy asylums. Kick out the illegals/lawbreakers, put a STOp to government/public pensions and the cost of living will go down. Its that easy! 😄 Ohh, and build that wall 10 feet higher, lol.

    The Kurds in Iraq are refusing to sack Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi in the run-up to a six-year deal with Baghdad, a US report says. "The ongoing negotiations between Erbil and Baghdad on the outstanding issues have made the official authorities in Erbil opposed the demands of demonstrators in Baghdad and the southern provinces to dismiss the central government, but the recognition of the legitimacy of the rest of the demands, especially the need for political and economic reform."
