  1. It would be awesome if you worked on your comprehension skills. And I said two YEARS before I joined. So I'm not sure I understand where you are going with that. My point is that for the ones complaining and being rude are the same ones that have absolutely no investment in the Dinars and desire nothing more but to stir things up or defend the pumpers. Nothing but trolls. Do you actually have a problem with the veterans warning others about the BS-ers and pumpers? If so, you are the one coming off as having an ulterior motive. If you don't like people getting warned, and you don't trust anyone and not even Adam, why do you care to log into this site at all? Why waste your time? SO TO CLARIFY, there is absolutely nothing wrong if someone is not a V.I.P. etc. But there IS something wrong when someone makes a comment like the one I was directing that comment towards. Which is this one: Jaygo, on 07 Nov 2014 - 3:20 PM, said: Rude. Trollish. Irrational. Crazy. Biased. So yea I would require him to at minimum prove he even holds Dinar before attempting to answer my original question, "Who does anyone trust as a guru?" Duh. #DoYouEvenDinar?

  2. ISIS chief ‘critically wounded’ in air raid: reports Anbar province MP Mohammad al-Karbuli says U.S.-led coalition aircraft targeted a gathering of ISIS leaders in al-Qaim. (File Photo: AFP) By Staff writer | Al Arabiya NewsSaturday, 8 November 2014 The leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was “critically wounded” on Saturday when a U.S.-led air strike targeted the western Iraqi border town of al-Qaim, tribal sources told Al Arabiya News Channel. The tribal sources also said that a number of ISIS’ senior members were killed in the air raid. Anbar province MP Mohammad al-Karbuli told Al Arabiya News Channel that U.S.-led coalition aircraft had targeted a gathering of ISIS leaders in al-Qaim that led to the killing of tens of people and wounded. Karbuli said chaos ensued the air raid with ISIS members scrambling to transport their wounded to al-Qaim hospital which was overwhelmed with the number of patients. Reuters news agency quoted two witnesses as saying an air strike targeted a house where senior ISIS officers were meeting, near the western Iraqi border town of al-Qaim. The witnesses said ISIS fighters had cleared a hospital so that their wounded could be treated. ISIS fighters used loudspeakers to urge residents to donate blood, the witnesses said. The agency also quoted residents as saying there were unconfirmed reports that ISIS’ local leader in the western Iraqi province of Anbar and his deputy were killed. U.S. officials would not confirm or deny whether Baghdadi, the group's overall leader, had been targeted, the agency said. http://english.alarabiya.net/en/News/middle-east/2014/11/08/Reports-ISIS-leader-critically-wounded-in-air-strike.htm

  4. REPORT: US-Led Airstrikes Just Targeted A High-Level ISIS Convoy Michael Georgy, Reuters 51 minutes ago BAGHDAD (Reuters) - U.S.-led air strikes have targeted a gathering of Islamic State leaders in Iraq in a town near the Syrian border, possibly including the group's top commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Al-Hadath television channel said on Saturday. Iraqi security officials were not immediately available for comment on the report from the station, part of Saudi-owned al-Arabiya television, but two witnesses told Reuters an air strike targeted a house where senior Islamic State officers were meeting, near the western Iraqi border town of al-Qaim. They said Islamic State fighters had evacuated a hospital so that their wounded could be treated. Residents said there were unconfirmed reports that Islamic State's local leader in the western Iraqi province of Anbar and his deputy were killed. U.S. officials would not confirm or deny if Baghdadi, the group's overall leader, had been targeted. One U.S. official said that air strikes were carried out against a convoy near the northern city of Mosul and against small Islamic State units elsewhere, but the U.S.-led air strikes had not targeted an Islamic State gathering. Al-Hadath said dozens of people were killed and wounded in the strike, which it said took place in al-Qaim, and that Baghdadi's fate was unclear. Al-Qaim and its neighboring Syrian counterpart Albukamal are on a strategic supply route. The report came hours after car bombs killed 20 people, including five soldiers, in the Iraqi capital and the city of Ramadi to the west on Saturday, police and medical sources said, in attacks that resembled operations carried out by Islamic State militants. Two bombs exploded in separate attacks in Baghdad's mainly Shi'ite Amil district, said a police source. "A driver parked his car and went to a cigarette stall, then he disappeared. Then his car blew up, killing passers-by," said the police source, describing one of the two attacks in Amil. Reuters Maps locations in Syria and Iraq where the U.S.-led coalition has conducted air strikes against Islamic State targets, includes chart of air strikes by day. In the mostly Shi'ite al-Amin area of Baghdad, another car bomb killed eight people, medical sources said. The attack by a suicide bomber on a checkpoint in Ramadi in western Anbarprovince killed five soldiers. “Before the explosion, the checkpoint was targeted with several mortar rounds. Then the suicide humvee bomber attacked it," said a police official. "Some troops came to the scene. They were attacked by mortars. A confrontation took place for one hour." There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombings. The ultra-hardline Sunni Islamic State's drive to create a caliphate in Iraq has helped return sectarian violence to the dark days of 2006-2007, the peak of a civil war. In the town of Baquba, 65 km (40 miles) northeast of Baghdad, a gunman killed a Shi'itemilitiaman, and a car bomb targeting a police officer killed his 10-year-old son, security sources said. Western and Iraqi officials say U.S.-led air strikes are not enough to defeat the al Qaeda offshoot, which holds parts of Iraq and Syria and is fighting to expand what it calls a caliphate. Iraq must improve the performance of its army and security forces in order to eliminate the threat from the group, which wants to redraw the map of the Middle East, the officials say. President Barack Obama has approved sending up to 1,500 more troops to Iraq, roughly doubling the number of U.S. forces on the ground, to advise and retrain Iraqis in their battle against Islamic State. The Iraqi prime minister's media office said the additional U.S. trainers were welcome but the move came late, state television reported. The United States spent $25 billion on the Iraqi military during the U.S. occupation that toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003, and triggered an insurgency that included al Qaeda. Washington wants Iraq's Shi'ite-led government to revive an alliance with Sunni tribesmen inAnbar province which helped U.S. Marines defeat al Qaeda. Such an alliance would face a more formidable enemy in Islamic State, which has more firepower and funding. Police Colonel Shaaban Barazan al-Ubaidi, commander of a rapid reaction force in Anbar, said security forces retook eight villages. His account could not be immediately confirmed.

  5. Here you go, for all you Mtn.Goat followers....her latest diatribe. There is some worthwhile info here, but just eat the meat & spit out the bones. Please don't shoot the messenger. Have a great weekend & be Blessed..! RON Mnt Goat Friday Update - 11/7/2014 - “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!” - Part1 UU8677 - “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!” by Mnt Goat Hi Everyone, In Germany we have many favorite times for celebration. As you know one of the favorites was the Oktoberfest this fall. It was once again a lovely time this year. The opening day parade was spectacular and the beer……oh boy !!!! So now we look forward to yet another great German tradition. This event is focused around the Christmas spirit. It is coming soon and it is called Christkindlesmarkt. Do you know what this is? This period goes way back to 1400’s when it was traditional to give children gifts onDecember 6th , St. Nicolas’s Day. So you know Meine Kinger luv it. Since then it had progressed into the squares and platz in Germany to become a delightful tradition. The enticing smells of mulled wine and rum punch, roasted almonds, gingerbread and (of course) bratwurst…. lol…..fill the air. And it’s not only tiny tots who will have their eyes all a-glow as the Christkind will open the holiday season. This all happens the Friday before the first Sunday in Advent is the day it all begins. This is the official start of the Christmas holiday season in Germany. We are making plans now to hop on the train and head up to Nuremberg for a few days. Here we will visit the world-famous Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt. This has become an annual holiday tradition for our family. Miene Kinder can hardly wait but I too along with Meine Hubby also enjoy being outdoors at night, sipping mulled wine and seeing all the lights and smells. It is a wonderful time of the year. Wish you all could join us this year ! But the real reason why I come to you today is to share my recent findings and give you an update on the progress of the economic reforms project and how this relates towards the international rollout of the IQD for Iraq. Today's news letter, as in all my news letters, is a continuation of the ongoing saga of the IQD RV process. Please refer back to my last news letter of 10/29 as this news letter is a continuation of this news. Today’s News Today is Friday 11/7 and Iraqi is making great progress in their new government. As I said previously the major items now of emphasis for Iraq government are: 1) expose the past 8 years of corruption and weed out those responsible for the corruption; (we see Maliki is about to face his maker…..lol….) 2) defeat ISIS and secure Iraq (build up the provincial and national security forces); 3) complete the economic reforms. I will talk about this last item mostly today since you are hearing so much more about the other two items lately in the general news media. What - no budget on the agenda? I have to say this 2014 budget issue is a done deal. I have already told you in a previous news letter how Iraq intends to use the 2014 budget. They are not going to formally announce a voting on the budget since much of the detailed project are being rolled over to 2015. Much of the intended money has been stolen and they are not going to brag about internal corruption from the Maliki administration. It would only be egg on their faces to since they allowed it to happen. What money they have left (after Maliki raped the coffers now over 150 billion) they are using along with supplemental loans. Approx 80% of it is being used to fund the fighting with ISIS with the hope they will get continued military hardware, logistical and air support from the alliance forces. The other 20% is for domestic spending on critical functions to run the government. They do not want to resort to any more short term loans but they will resort to this step if necessary. Kuwait banks have offered funding and well as the IMF. So why don’t they just RV and get all the money they need? If it was so simple don’t you think they would have done the RV already? If they are not careful in how they reinstate their currency the process could blow up in their faces and make them worst off. For instance we see them slowly rolling out reprinted, newer currency with even more up to date security features. These are more of the 3 zero notes. We all wonder why they are doing this. It seems counter productive since didn’t they just got through a massive program to collect as much 3 zero notes as possible? Is this not a deviation from their plan? Do they intend to prolong this RV forever? Absolutely not ! The CBI is doing this so when they recall the last of the 3 zero notes there will be a deadline to switch them over for the lower demons. This is much like they did when they switched over from the old Saddam Hussein notes. Remember they are just not going to give out FREE money to anyone. The citizens must come to the bank and switch out their present currency. After a said deadline (to be determined) the older, original 3 zero notes will no longer be legal currency in Iraq. Note I said “in Iraq” so don’t worry about the ones we hold as investors outside of Iraq. I will explain how they intend to handle these notes. Why is the CBI being so fussy in rolling out the newer, more secure 3 zero notes? They are doing this since they will be still using these 3 zero notes going forward for inter- banking and international transactions. They need the larger notes for these very, very large transactions in the future between countries. They actually never go away altogether. They must break this counterfeiting that is happening first. It is killing their economy and is a terrorist liability. The average citizen however will not use them but if they had a couple (of the newer 3 zero notes) they would actually be legal tender but just not allowed on the streets and rejected by the banks after the said deadline. So imagine if you were counterfeiting the dinar or had a large stash of maybe trillions of the original , older 3 zero notes. Now they are no longer legal tender to anyone. What would you do with them? Well in the Middle East you may as well throw them away after the deadline. Anyone with very large stashes will be caught at the banks trying to exchange them since this is the only place you could switch them over to the newer, more secure 3 zero notes. This is kind of like a trap for terrorists and counterfeitting rings they are setting who now have very large stashes (i.e. ISIS). This is also a well planned effort to flush out or disarm these dinar counterfeiting rings (much of which is coming from Iran). They must get this counterfeit currency under control prior to any RV. They must disarm any large stashes of dinar that can be used against Iraq by the terrorists. So far they have kept this effort in the background and I am not exposing anything that will hurt their effort since they are so far into the process already. Also I want to remind you that all of our 3 zero notes that we now hold are also the older, original 3 zero notes. The CBI must collect these too and get them off the streets of foreign countries too or someday they might end up back in the Middle East in the hands of terrorists. They must do it very quickly once the RV rollout happens. They can’t do it now since we are not going to let go of our dinars without some incentive (like a revalued rate?). Can you now see why? I know for a fact there already have been many exchanges within the USA in this matter. I will not talk about the legality of these transactions since the IQD has not officially already revalued - or has it? Some say it is perfectly legal since last spring Maliki did in fact officially reinstate his currency while he was still in power as the prime minister. Some also say he had no power to do it since only the CBI has control over the currency. Yes the GOI must approve any recommendation by the CBI (as an agreed to courtesy) but the official power lays within the CBI. Will the IQD we hold outside of Iraq, be legal tender in Iraq? Actually after the RV if these older notes are brought back into Iraq from the EU or USA countries the answer is emphatically a big fat - NO! Airport security will probably confiscate them. The older, original IQD will only be legal tender outside of Iraq. This “legal immunity” will only last for a period of time before suspicions will arise if you try to exchange any very large quantity of this older currency. Many terrorist questions will arise at this time at the bank and you probably will be faced with Homeland security issues. So my advice is don’t wait in conducting your exchange when the time happens. ************************************** Mnt Goat Friday Update - 11/7/2014 - “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!” - Part 2 Will there be a time limit to exchange post RV? No-but like I said if you go beyond a “reasonable timeframe” AND you have a very large quantity then many terrorist questions will arise at this time at the bank and you probably will be faced with Homeland security issues. So my advice is don’t wait in conducting your exchange when the time happens. So if you were to hoard a few of these older 3 zero notes (turn in the rest under the exchange) and then in the future take a vacation trip to Iraq, thinking you could bring them and spend these notes and live high off the hog.,,,,, think again ! Actually in the near future they will be illegal tender in Iraq and you might even get arrested for having them since you might be suspected of being a terrorist. You would have had to intentionally smuggled them into Iraq first of all and this alone is not good. So don’t do it. Just exchange all of them in your country of origin and get rid of them. If you are planning a trip to Iraq get the newer, lower denomination notes from the bank as you would any other country when going on vacation. What about these new coins? How do they effect the RV rollout? The committee on the economy and investment in the Iraqi Council of Representatives, revealed on Thursday 11/6, by saying that "the central bank completed its preparations for the issuance of metal coins of seven small groups." Said committee member Rep., Nora my neighbor, L / Iraq Press / that "the Central Bank and in conjunction with the implementation of the project to delete the three zeroes from the paper currency currently in circulation, will issue metal coins from multiple categories to overcome the economic crisis, which may get a peer process of deletion of zeros," adding that "the launch of coins project will take between four to five years and will be the launch of which categories of small coins gradually." So after reading this article above it is telling us they intend also to use the coins to supplement the paper currency along with the newer paper lower denoms they are about to issue to the general public. Also the coins will supplement the larger 3 zero notes too since there is a $10,000 coins. So you see we get back to the same theme. That of deleting the older, original 3 zero notes out of circulation from their paper currency inventory and to do it on conjunction with a revaluation of some kind. They must secure these 3 zero notes for the future international inter-banking transactions first. This was the plan all along to use them. Now how can they complete this effort of deletion of the zeros unless they also collect our currency (the older, original notes) from outside of Iraq? There is a risk that someday terrorists can use this older, original currency we have but only outside of Iraq since it will be worthless inside Iraq. So they will want to collect as much of our dinar as possible once the RV happens…and do it quickly. Maybe we were never intended to own such quantities of this currency as average citizens outside of Iraq. It all could have been stopped, blocked very easily through customs and it was not. The serge of dinar holders increased dramatically over the last 4 years outside of Iraq but still the average dinar holder has less than a million dinar. There is a reason why they (meaning country you live in) are letting you possess this currency. Two of these reasons I will explain. 1)countries like the USA and China will get oil credits from Iraq (discounted oil prices) for turning in these older, original notes as a bonus for assisting in collecting them for the CBI. This arrangement was made in 2008-2009. 2)many countries all over the world have been seeded with the Iraq dinar as part of their reserve currency portfolio. When the value increases so does the value of their reserves, thus so may the value of their currency. This is plan part of the Global Financial Reform (GFR) an IMF term for a plan to reform and standardize the financial structure and banking practices between nations. There is no such thing as a Global Currency Reform (GCR). This term was misunderstood many years ago by these know it all “gurus”. Thus the rumors began. The hope is that these measures will prevent one country (or a few countries) from taking down the world’s economy. The plan is to eventually district the planet into financial zones so when financial downturns occur the impact will be limited to that district or zone that caused it. It is like damage control versus prevention. You see, what was so bad about the 2008 collapse (and why it is taking so long to rebound) is because it was so wide spread and effected almost ever financial and monetary sector on the planet. Every country was so interconnected financially in the markets and financial products. By seeding Iraq dinar in many of the hurting countries it was hoped they can kick start the economies of these countries when the revaluation happens. Still the IQD revaluation is only a band-aid not a permanent fix. Some are saying a slow revaluation of the IQD would be best and putting the currency on a free market float. Others say that they need a sudden and quick high rate (reinstatement plus 20% equity). I believe it will be a bit of both when it happens. I am saying this because this is what I have been told when I asked my CBI contact. Summary So today I send you an update of the latest news I am hearing. It is just where we want to be at this time. In fact there is an excellent window of opportunity to see the RV in the coming days, not weeks. As I have said in my previous news letter, we are in a sweet spot right now to literally see this RV in the coming days ahead. This is by far the best place I have ever seen this investment in the 10 years I have been following it. I hope I helped you understand why the CBI is taking such a long time in rolling out this RV. I have had many long conversations with my CBI contact since my last news letter and he talked about some of the programs they have instituted to assist in fighting current and future counterfeiting and financial corruption. He also gave me some insight as to collecting the older, original 3 zero notes and why it is imperative to get them too out of circulation and do it quickly once the RV happens. I see that we have passed the Oct 31st target for completion of this RV process as I am hearing now the new target is the mid Nov timeframe. This is only about a week away and so I would not worry. Even if they make us wait till early 2015, it is all still worth the wait. I feel like a kid looking at my gifts under the Christmas tree with great anticipation of the treat the lays ahead. Then when can we expect the RV? I believe we are in a rare opportunity and window like never before. In the coming days we should expect the RV. Peace and Luv To Ya All, Mnt Goat I tried to delete the Chatter in the beginning of the letter, but it wouldn't let me...Sorry...! RON

  9. The private sector contributes to increase the value of the dinar 6/11/2014 0:00 BAGHDAD Mustafa al-Hashemi, many wonder about the reasons for not rising purchasing power of the dinar years ago and so far, despite having a good cover of gold and foreign currency as well as high-oil exports as well as improve its exchange rate against the dollar, when the continued improvement in the exchange rate with the salary increase Fsnsal to the stage does not commensurate with the productivity of the economy calls for the support of the private sector and grant privileges equivalent to the public sector privileges in terms of the wage rate. In this context, sees economic academic Dr. Majid Baidhani importance of finding a balance between this equation by increasing the productivity of the individual to achieve the increase in incomes, explaining that the productivity of the individual factor comes through the activation and projects of the private sector in productive sectors such as agriculture and Alsnaah.oadav told (morning): It is necessary to achieve financial revenues through the creation of jobs and employment opportunities in the private sector and make it a par with government employees privileges that contribute significantly to the revival of the booming economy , having to rely on the oil industry to activate those opportunities. He stressed that the central bank was able through the implementation of a successful fiscal policies in recent years have contributed a lot in the stability of the market and this has resulted in its role regarding the improvement of the exchange rate, and went on to say: Here comes the role of government and the competent authorities to complete drawing this picture by providing focused support to the private sector and the implementation of the government program, which stressed the importance in advancing the country's economy forward.

  11. This is wavering a bit off Kobane.... its almost like we need several threads... Daesh (ISIS) Turkey and Humanitarian Crises (Kobane and Mt Sinjar)... to keep things straight.... Kobane continues to hold ground and in some reports they are re-claiming lost ground. When you look at the latest maps, they are still surrouded by Daesh (ISIS) controlled areas. They have managed to hold onto the gate to Turkey, despite intense battles to take it. The YPG does daily updates and I'll try to get them in a format to put in here... Air Strikes continue though not at the frequency they were last month. Mt Sinjar (Yezidi) is still surrounded by Daesh (ISIS). YPG and Peshmerga are there fighting to push them back. There is still no corridor of safety for the Yezidis to escape from the mountain. People continue to die from lack of water, and food. With winter coming and snow with it, it is feared that many will eventually freeze to death. Its unclear why the US in their campaign to eliminate Daesh (ISIS) is not throwing a boatload of helll from the air and simply ending this... Turkey is continuing to play out the insantiy of their crazed President Erdogan. Here is the latest effort to have him disposed of by international effort: Petition calls for arrest of Turkey’s president Saturday, November 8, 2014 Turkey's President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Australians for Kurdistan began this petition on Change.org. It asks the Australian federal attorney-general to arrest Turkey's President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, when he visits Brisbane for the G20 summit on November 15. It also asks the attorney-general to remove the Kurdistan Workers Party from the list of terrorist organisations. To sign the petition go to www.change.org. * * * Be Alert, Be Alarmed! The godfather of ISIS is being welcomed by the Australian government! Australian federal Attorney-General The Australian government has recently bolstered “Anti-terror” laws and got involved in a new Middle East military adventure in the name of fighting the Syria and Iraq-based terror gang ISIS. It cannot be denied that ISIS is a truly monstrous organisation. Their own propaganda features mass executions of civilians and prisoners of war, including those who surrendered without firing a shot, along with crucifixions and decapitations. Severed heads are a recurring motif in their prolific social media output. In August, after they attacked communities belonging to the Yezidi and Christian minorities in the vicinity of Mt Sinjar, Iraq, they openly boasted not only of their slaughter of thousands of civilians, but of enslaving thousands of women and children, some of whom were sold in public markets for slavery and sexual exploitation. The Australian government declared it had to act. However, it was not Western forces who rescued the survivors in the Sinjar area. It was the forces of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and their Syrian allies, the Peoples Defence Units (YPG) and Women’s Defence Units (YPJ), forces that continue to defend Sinjar from ISIS attacks until this day. Appallingly, the PKK is listed as a terrorist organisation under Australian “Anti-terror” laws! This is at the behest of the Turkish state that has denied Kurdish people basic rights since its creation in the 1920s. In its efforts to crush the PKK and Kurdish aspirations for self-determination, the Turkish state has killed at least 40,000 people since the 1980s. In Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava), in the midst of a multi-sided war in which the various sides seem to compete with each other in human rights abuses and large-scale violence, the Kurdish organisations including the YPG and YPG have created an island of hope: a unique experiment in democratic community self-management characterised by gender equality, ethnic inclusivity and religious tolerance. Terrified by the example this sets, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has used the sadistic ISIS gangs in an attempt to drown it in blood. The world’s attention has become focused on the heroic, besieged town of Kobane. This border town is besieged on three sides by ISIS. The fourth side of siege is maintained by the Turkish state. Moreover, the Erdogan regime has actively assisted ISIS! This assistance includes: • Trading with ISIS in stolen Syrian and Iraqi oil; • Allowing ISIS to use Turkey as a rear base; • Allowing foreign recruits to ISIS to pass unhindered through Turkish territory; • Treating wounded ISIS terrorists in Turkish hospitals and allowing them to return to the battlefield; and • Providing ISIS with heavy weapons and logistical support. This large-scale Turkish state support does incomparably more to enable ISIS violence than alleged small donations by supporters that have been the pretext for massive anti-terror raids in Australia. Yet, even while the threat of terrorism is invoked to severely limit the civil liberties of residents and civil society activists during the Brisbane G20 Summit, the Australian government is welcoming Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the summit with open arms! We therefore demand: • The arrest of Recep Tayyip Erdogan for supporting terrorism as soon as he sets foot on Australian soil; and • The immediate end to listing the PKK as a terrorist organisation under Australian law. Sincerely, [Your name] Cyprus accuses Turkey of ‘provocative actions’ in Med President says Turkey’s search for oil and gas near the island hinders peace talks, compromises regional security November 8, 2014, 4:39 pm Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi ©, Cyprus' President Nicos Anastasiades (L) and Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras shake hands during a press conference following a meeting in Cairo on November 8, 2014. (Photo credit: AFP/Khaled Desouki) Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades on Saturday accused Turkey of “provocative actions” that he said are hindering the island’s peace talks and compromising security in the eastern Mediterranean. Last month Cyprus suspended its participation in UN-led peace talks with Turkey amid tensions over Ankara’s determination to search for oil and gas in the same region where the Cypriot government has licensed exploratory drills in an exclusive economic zone. “Turkey’s provocative actions do not just compromise the peace talks, but also affect security in the eastern Mediterranean region,” Anastasiades said during a visit to Cairo. “For the (peace) negotiations to succeed Turkey needs to show positive intention and adopt a constructive stance through positive and effective steps in this direction,” he said, according to a translation. The Greek Cypriot leader was speaking at a joint news conference in Cairo with his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah el-Sissi and Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras. In a meeting with Anastasiades on Wednesday, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman condemned Turkey’s exploration, urging each country to respect the sovereign rights of their neighbor, adding that it was “extremely unnecessary” for Turkey to cause friction in a region already mired in conflict. “We respect the integrity of Cyprus. We’re sure that you have your exclusive rights to explore in your economic zone of the gas and oil reserves,” Liberman told reporters after talks with his Cypriot counterpart Ioannis Kasoulides. With Israel finding large reserves of gas close to where Cyprus is drilling, the two countries are looking to cooperate on energy issues such as exporting Israeli gas. Since October 20 a Turkish survey vessel has encroached Cyprus’s exclusive economic zone off the island’s southern coast, according to Nicosia. Ankara had issued a notice that a Turkish seismic vessel would carry out a survey until December 30 in the same area where the Italian-Korean energy consortium ENI-Kogas is operating. Turkish troops invaded and occupied the northern third of Cyprus in 1974 in response to an Athens-engineered coup aimed at uniting it with Greece, and the peace talks are aimed at reunifying the island. Ankara opposes the Cypriot government’s exploitation of offshore energy reserves before a deal is reached to solve the decades-long division of the east Mediterranean island. Anastasiades, Samaras and Sissi were at a summit in Cairo on Saturday to discuss regional security and economic cooperation. Even bland ole run of the mill NewsWeek gets it.... ‘ISIS Sees Turkey as Its Ally': Former Islamic State Member Reveals Turkish Army Cooperation By Barney Guiton Filed: 11/7/14 at 10:35 AM | Updated: 11/8/14 at 11:28 AM Smoke rises from the Syrian town of Kobane, Turkish army tanks take position on the Turkish side of the border, October 8, 2014. Umit Bektas/Reuters Filed Under: World, Kurds, ISIS, Islamic State, Turkey, Kobane A former member of ISIS has revealed the extent to which the cooperation of the Turkish military allows the terrorist group, who now control large parts of Iraq and Syria, to travel through Turkish territory to reinforce fighters battling Kurdish forces. A reluctant former communications technician working for Islamic State, now going by the pseudonym ‘Sherko Omer’, who managed to escape the group, told Newsweek that he travelled in a convoy of trucks as part of an ISIS unit from their stronghold in Raqqa, across Turkish border, through Turkey and then back across the border to attack Syrian Kurds in the city of Serekaniye in northern Syria in February. “ISIS commanders told us to fear nothing at all because there was full cooperation with the Turks,” said Omer of crossing the border into Turkey, “and they reassured us that nothing will happen, especially when that is how they regularly travel from Raqqa and Aleppo to the Kurdish areas further northeast of Syria because it was impossible to travel through Syria as YPG [National Army of Syrian Kurdistan] controlled most parts of the Kurdish region.” Newsweek Magazine is Back In Print Until last month, NATO member Turkey had blocked Kurdish fighters from crossing the border into Syria to aid their Syrian counterparts in defending the border town of Kobane. Speaking to Newsweek, Kurds in Kobane said that people attempting to carry supplies across the border were often shot at. YPG spokesman Polat Can went even further, saying that Turkish forces were actively aiding ISIS. “There is more than enough evidence with us now proving that the Turkish army gives ISIS terrorists weapons, ammunitions and allows them to cross the Turkish official border crossings in order for ISIS terrorists to initiate inhumane attacks against the Kurdish people in Rojava [north-eastern Syria].” Omer explained that during his time with ISIS, Turkey had been seen as an ally against the Kurds. “ISIS saw the Turkish army as its ally especially when it came to attacking the Kurds in Syria. The Kurds were the common enemy for both ISIS and Turkey. Also, ISIS had to be a Turkish ally because only through Turkey they were able to deploy ISIS fighters to northern parts of the Kurdish cities and towns in Syria.” “ISIS and Turkey cooperate together on the ground on the basis that they have a common enemy to destroy, the Kurds,” he added. While Newsweek was not able to independently verify Omer’s testimony, anecdotal evidence of Turkish forces turning a blind eye to ISIS activity has been mounting over the past month. Omer, the son of a successful businessman in Iraqi Kurdistan, initially went to Syria to join the Free Syrian Army’s fight against Bashar al-Assad, but found himself sucked in to ISIS, unable to leave. He was given a job as a communication technician, and worked at the ISIS communications bureau in Raqqa. “I have connected ISIS field captains and commanders from Syria with people in Turkey on innumerable occasions,” said Omer. “I rarely heard them speak in Arabic, and that was only when they talked to their own recruiters, otherwise, they mostly spoke in Turkish because the people they talked to were Turkish officials of some sorts because ISIS guys used to be very serious when they talked to them.” Omer was then transferred to a battalion travelling to fight Kurdish forces in Serekaniya, north-eastern Syria, and describes travelling through Turkey in a convoy of trucks, staying at safehouses along the way, before crossing back into Syria at the Ceylanpinar border crossing. Before crossing the border back into Syria, he says: “My ISIS commander reassured us once again that it was all going to be all right because cooperation had been made with the Turks. He frequently talked on the radio in Turkish.” “While we tried to cross the Ceylanpinar border post, the Turkish soldiers' watchtower light spotted us. The commander quickly told us to stay calm, stay in position and not to look at the light. He talked on the radio in Turkish again and we stayed in our positions. Watchtower light then moved about 10 minutes later and the commander ordered us to move because the watchtower light moving away from us was the signal that we could safely cross the border into Serekaniye." Once in Serekaniye, Omer says he surrendered to Kurdish forces when they attacked his camp. He was held for several months before his captors were convinced that he had not been a fighter in ISIS and had not taken part in violence.

  13. Actually, Reagan almost didn't get the cons nomination. Was a big issue with VP. Reagan declared he would not allow a standing member of the CFR to be 2nd in command. Then, had to agree for GOP nomination. Just a couple weeks after election they tried to assassinate him. Most everyone knew the moron with Jody Foster worship didn't act alone or without help. That's why he was declared insane immediately and sent to posh institution. He was getting weekend furloughs and allowed to go home on weekends before Reagan was even out of office. Reagan did lots of constitutional videos, he knew he couldn't save America alone, he needed Americans to help, which they didn't. America let Reagan down, he had no choice to comply with some globalist demands, or he would wake up dead. If Ben gets elected, he can only be the point man for the commoners revolution. He will not be able to do it alone either.

  14. Turns Out More U.S. Troops Than First Thought Were Sickened or Injured By “Non-Existent” Iraqi WMDs BY KEVIN BOYD (16 HOURS AGO) | POLITICS IJRSHAREEMAIL Getty - MAURICIO LIMA The Pentagon now believes that over 600 American soldiers were sickened by abandoned Iraqi chemical weapons in the aftermath of the Iraq War. The weapons were originally built in the 1980s as a result of the Iran-Iraq War, in which Iraq used chemical weapons on the Iranians. The New York Times reports that some of the chemical weapons were even used as roadside bombs by the numerous insurgent groups operating in Iraq after the war. This previously untold chapter of the occupation became public after an investigation by The New York Times revealed last month that although troops did not find an active weapons of mass destruction program, they did encounter degraded chemical weapons from the 1980s that had been hidden in caches or used in makeshift bombs. The Times initially disclosed 17 cases of American service members who were injured by sarin or a sulfur mustard agent. And since the report was published last month, more service members have come forward, pushing the number who were exposed to chemical agents to more than 25. But an internal review of Pentagon records ordered by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has now uncovered that hundreds of troops told the military they believe they were exposed, officials said. Why is the military just now finding out about this many potential cases of injuries as a result of chemical weapons? The military and the U.S. government were slow to revealinformation about these weapons until recently. Sickened soldiers were instructed to not discuss their injuries with others, according to the New York Times. As the Pentagon continues with its internal investigation, some are calling for Congress to step in with its own hearings and investigation into the matter. -

Forty-eight American soldiers lost their lives that day. Severely wounded and risking his own life, Lawrence Joll, a medic, was the first living black man since the Spanish-American War to receive the United States Medal of Honor for saving so many lives in the midst of battle that day. Our friend, Nialls Harris, retired 25 years, United States Army (the guy who gave Big Kenny his top hat) was one of the wounded who lived. This song is his story. Caught in the action of 'kill or be killed' - 'greater love hath no man to lay down his life for a friend.'

  21. Is God’s Love Conditional? Our WORD for Sunday, 9 Nov 2014 "Draw near to God and he will draw near to you." ( James 4:8) This verse means that there is a precious experience of peace and assurance and harmony and intimacy that is not unconditional. It depends on our not grieving the Spirit. It depends on our putting away bad habits. It depends on forsaking the petty inconsistencies of our Christian lives. It depends on our walking closely with God and aiming at the highest degree of holiness. If this is true, I fear that the unguarded reassurances today that God’s love is unconditional may stop people from doing the very things the Bible says they need to do in order to have the peace that they so desperately crave. In trying to give peace through “unconditionality” we may be cutting people off from the very remedy the Bible prescribes. Let us declare untiringly the good news that our justification is based on the worth of Christ’s obedience and sacrifice, not ours (Romans 5:19, “as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous”). But let us also declare the biblical truth that the enjoyment of that justification in its effect on our joy and confidence and power to grow in likeness to Jesus is conditioned on our actively forsaking sins and forsaking bad habits and mortifying lusts and pursuing intimacy with Christ, and not grieving the Spirit. Remember, in the natural, if we are to have a meaningful relationship with someone, we'll have to spend time with them to get to know them in order to develop any measure of intimacy = draw near to them...! Food for thought...! God doesn't want us to be strangers, because we were created to have fellowship with Him. He still extends unconditional love towards us, but the measure of our reward in eternity depends upon our participation in a relationship with Him here on earth, assuming we entered into one by receiving Jesus Christ and His redemptive sacrifice on the cross. Nevertheless, God wants a relationship with us here and now...! Enjoy...& have a great Sunday.....RON

Perhaps it's Tony? If none of the above, you are certainly one of their minions.

Because I thanked someone for putting the truth out there that newbies otherwise would have taken a little longer to put together without thread like these? Perhaps I should jump on the other bandwagon and begin to post the lies as well? Would that make you feel better? LOL #Trolls #MinionCity #CorniestPumperJokeLOL

  25. https://news.vice.com/video/turkeys-border-war-dispatch-1?utm_source=vicenewsyoutube Turkey's Border War (Dispatch 1) October 16, 2014 | 4:18 pm Turkey has closed its border with Syria as Islamic State militants battle Kurdish forces in the Syrian border town of Kobane. Turkish checkpoints and tanks ensure that no one enters or exits the town, while nearby some of the 180,000 refugees who previously fled into Turkey watch helplessly as the fighting unfolds in front of them. VICE News travelled to the Turkish side of the border as US airstrikes hit Islamic State positions in Kobane. As we watched alongside Kurds from both Syria and Turkey, they talked about Turkey's lack of support for the Kurds fighting in Kobane and provided updates on the battle. Life Inside Kurdish Refugee Camps: Turkey's Border War (Dispatch 2) Published on Oct 16, 2014 When Islamic State jihadists launched a major offensive on the majority Kurdish town of Kobane in September, more than 180,000 people fled across the border into Turkey. Local authorities struggled to cope with the influx at first, and thousands of refugees were forced to sleep on the streets of the Turkish border town of Suruc. Now camps are being set up to provide shelter and other assistance. With the borders closed and thousands unable to leave Kobane, VICE News visited one of six refugee camps in the town to find out how refugee families — some sharing tents with up to 14 other people — are coping with leaving their homes and livelihoods behind.

  28. This article has been on here for two days now. You just need to look. There are allot of great news hounds and researchers on this site. The private sector contributes to increase the value of the dinar 6/11/2014 0:00 BAGHDAD Mustafa al-Hashemi, many wonder about the reasons for not rising purchasing power of the dinar years ago and so far, despite having a good cover of gold and foreign currency as well as high-oil exports as well as improve its exchange rate against the dollar, when the continued improvement in the exchange rate with the salary increase Fsnsal to the stage does not commensurate with the productivity of the economy calls for the support of the private sector and grant privileges equivalent to the public sector privileges in terms of the wage rate.

  29. Erdogan’s Book of Defeat Posted on November 8, 2014 Gatestone Institute, by Burak Bekdil, Oct. 31, 2014: In the entire Middle East, Turkey now has only two allies: Qatar, which looks more like a rich, family-owned gas station than a state; and Hamas, a terrorist organization. Tunisia was the final chapter in Erdogan’s book of defeat. Neo-Ottomanism was a childish dream. It is, now, a “sealed” childish dream. Shortly after the Arab Spring rocked several capitals in the Middle East, the Turks devised a plan that would enable their country to emerge as the new Ottoman Empire. While deliberately and systematically antagonizing Israel, Ankara would: replace the Shia-controlled Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad with a Turkey-friendly Sunni ruler; support the Sunni in Iraq and Lebanon and boost their political influence; support Hamas in the Palestinian territories and provoke it to violence against Israel; and make sure that the Muslim Brotherhood or their various brethren rule Egypt, Tunisia and Libya. Saudis were already “our Muslim brothers.” Eventually, all former Ottoman lands would produce governments subservient to the emerging Turkish Empire. Nearly four years later, Syria’s Assad is comfortably sitting in his presidential palace in Damascus and possibly laughing at the mess the Turks created by supporting Syria’s jihadists. These jihadists have only wreaked havoc along Turkey’s nearly 900-mile-long borders with both Syria and Iraq. The Shia in Iraq are as powerful as before, and remain obedient to Turkey’s regional sectarian rival, Iran. The Shia in Lebanon — where Turks are a high-value currency on the hostage market — are increasingly hostile to Turkey. No one knows who rules Libya after the downfall of Colonel Qaddafi, but none of the warring factions want any Turks meddling in the former Ottoman colony. Meanwhile, a coup in July 2013 toppled the Turks’ most-trusted regional ally, Egypt’s then president, Mohamed Morsi. Today, not only the Turks but also Turkish products — including even soap operas — are unwanted in Egypt. ‘Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy…’ Pictured above: Egypt’s then President Mohamed Morsi (left) poses with Turkey’s then Prime Minister (now President) Recep Tayyip Erdogan, before Morsi was overthrown and jailed. With the downfall — ironically, instead of Assad — of their Islamist allies in the region, the Turks recently discreetly moved to win back Egypt, the most populous Muslim nation in the region. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu asked to meet with his Egyptian counterpart, Sameh Hassan Shorky Selim, on the sidelines of the UN summit in September. The Egyptian minister abruptly cancelled the meeting, citing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s “insulting words about [Egyptian] President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.” A statement from the Egyptian foreign ministry called Erdogan’s words “lies and fabrication.” More recently, Cairo announced that it would not renew a three-year transit trade agreement with Turkey. The decision indicates a further worsening of bilateral ties, which had been downgraded, as in the instance of Israel, to the level of chargé d’affaires. The transit trade agreement, signed in 2012 when Morsi was in power, had facilitated Turkish exports to African nations and the Gulf through Egypt’s mainland, via Egyptian ports. Turkish companies previously sent their cargo to Gulf and African customers through Syria, when relations with Syria were normal. After Erdogan chose cold war with Syria, the Syrian route was closed to the Turks. The Turks then signed the transit deal with Egypt to use their ports and mainland as the alternative route. Now that Egypt will terminate this agreement, Turkish companies will be deprived of an easy route to Gulf and African customers. Ironically, only six weeks before General al-Sisi ousted Egypt’s Islamist President Morsi, Turkey had granted Egypt a $250 million loan to finance Turkish-Egyptian joint defense projects. The loan, the first of its kind, was intended to boost defense cooperation and Turkish exports of defense equipment to Egypt. At that time, Turkey was hoping to sell Egypt scores of Turkish-made drones, tactical naval boats and helicopters. Egypt’s hostile move was a “shock” to Ankara, but only to Ankara. “Apparently everyone dealing with the Egyptians knew this was coming, except the Turks,” said one EU ambassador in Ankara. It was not a secret that Egypt and the Turks’ “Muslim brothers, Saudi Arabia” aggressively lobbied against Turkey’s failed bid in September to win the seat of the non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. The EU ambassador said: “There may be further Egyptian moves to retaliate against Turkish hostilities. After Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and Israel, Turkey has completely lost Egypt.” That mishap left Turkey’s Islamists with one ideological ally in the former Ottoman lands: Tunisia, where the Muslim Brotherhood-inspired Ennahda party was in a coalition government — until this past weekend. Ennahda, the first Islamist movement to secure power after the 2011 Arab Spring revolts, conceded defeat in elections that are expected to make its main secular rival, Nidaa Tounes party, the strongest force in parliament. This defeat is a huge setback for Erdogan’s Tunisian ideological allies, who had headed a coalition government with two non-religious partners for more than two years. Tunisia was the final chapter in Erdogan’s book of defeat. Neo-Ottomanism was a childish dream. It is, now, a “sealed” childish dream. In the entire Middle East, Turkey now has only two allies: Qatar, which looks more like a rich, family-owned gas station than a state; and Hamas, a terrorist organization. But Turkey has a rich menu of hostilities: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, (discreetly) Jordan, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, (as always) Cyprus, (now) Tunisia, (also discreetly) Morocco and Algeria, and (most warring factions of) Libya. In an April 2012 speech, then Foreign Minister Davutoglu defined Turkey’s policy goal as: “On the historic march of our holy nation, the AK Party signals the birth of a global power and the mission for a new world order. This is the centenary of our exit from the Middle East… whatever we lost between 1911 and 1923, whatever lands we withdrew from, from 2011 to 2023 we shall once again meet our brothers in those lands. This is a … historic mission.” That was a not-so-covert message of a strategic goal of reviving the Empire. Only nine years before the deadline to “meet our brothers” and the birth of Turkey as “a global power with a mission to build a new world order,” Turkey looks rather dramatically isolated.

I myself don't trust ANYONE, but at least Adam doesn't pump n call it every other week. He knows what has to happen before X happens. He just says "things are on the right track." Monetary reform will happen when Iraq is good and ready! THE LATEST: According to Tony, DC, and Exogen, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people have exchanged this last week or so. THIS ALSO was the big story earlier this year or last year. Supposedly POLITICIANS were cashing in and the general public was next within days. GUESS WHAT DIDN'T HAPPEN?! So now we're hearing this recycled crap again. TOTAL UNVERIFIABLE BS, and as far as I'm concerned, a COMPLETE UTTER BOLDFACED LIE. Who exchanged where and at what rate? Did they get a real cashier's check IN HAND or did they all get RIPPED OFF with an SKR (safe keeping receipt) which is totally worthless? Most people are complete guru kiss-asses and believe everything they read without proof, and that's sad.

  35. He stepped out of the running in '12 because of rumored cheating. I'm thinking after Bush's drunk driving, Clinton's affairs, Obummers incompetence, and Hillarious' general all around fecklesness, , he has decided to face the angry indignant left wing media's firing line. I have no doubt he would not have made the announcement without the full support of his entire family . Personally, I thought he was our best chance, as long as he drops his establishment republican tendencies. There's a couple positions that scare the heck out of me. It is his solid Christian morality that gives me hope, as long as he continues to listen to the Spirit.

Okie, Goat and Terry and especially Frank were on my Suspect-List. But now, my doubts are confirmed, as well as now I know to ignore from now on. Mad props to you for this, because you are absolutely right; Not everyone has been in the game for 5+ years and without any warning, it takes a while to know who's-who. We all deserve to know the truth as soon as it is available. Millionday was absolutely next on my ish-list. Far too many promises and not enough truth to back up the claims.
