  1. He looks like another Joe Biden to me. Hope I am wrong....
  2. I’m not going to hold my breath on this one, but I am still waiting for charges to be brought up against the corrupt officials within WARKA Bank. How are they even still open after losing all that money???
  3. Malaki and Iran will never release the hooks they have in Iraq. Iraq will end up in a civil war trying to get the devil himself out of the Iraqi gov't.
  4. And how many protestors who Were Not followers of Sadr were shot and killed randomly back in like 2019 by Iranian Goons? Maliki and Iran were instructing their guards to pick them off one at a time in random fashion to try to scare them. Iran is their worst enemy and they know it!
  5. It really does seem to be a way of life over there. Looking kind of like “coming to a theater near us” before too long. I would not be surprised at all if a “Civil War” was declared here in America right before Nov of this year! Then all hell breaks loose once again with violence in the streets….. in the blue states of course! Get used to it…. This is our future as well! 😉
  6. Dialogue my arse! Now is the time to stand up or roll over for Iran to find their bung hole! 😄
  7. These guys are incredibly ignorant... Even the opossum, known as an animal surviving by instinct does better then these nutty yahoos!!!!!
  8. When exactly was the "White Papers" Policy initiated? I do so hope Maliki gets flushed down the toilet just like Osama Bin Laden was! Demands to revaluate the dinar, the government responds https://shafaq.com/en/Report/Demands-to-revaluate-the-dinar-the-government-responds 2021-11-12 14:16 Shafaq News / Devaluating the Iraqi dinar in the 2021 budget has stirred the discontent of the public, and economic and financial experts alike. In spite of the warnings from its negative economic and social reverberations, the Iraqi Ministry of Finance ascribes it a breakthrough amid a stifling economic crisis that has struck the country. Last December, the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) opted to raise the exchange rate of the U.S. dollar from 1,182 dinars to 1,460 dinars to alleviate the ramifications of the plummeting oil revenues, bringing down the value of the Iraqi national currency and the purchasing power immediately. As oil prices gradually climbed beyond the 80 dollars a barrel threshold, citizens and economists voiced demands to revaluate the dinar in next year's budget or mitigate the impact of its devaluation on the community. "The rise is an outcome of a white paper that organizes the process over three to five years. They deem it a part of the economic reform process for the financial situation and banks," economist Bassem Jamil Antoine told Shafaq News agency, "the state cannot change its currency. Still, real reform that serves the poor classes is essential." “The currency rate is not as vital as compensation for the poor classes, which constitute the bulk of the population; social welfare, ration card availability, and job development are all critical," he said, "unemployment and poverty rates skyrocketed due to lack of job opportunities in the public sector. On the other hand, the private sector is frozen and unable to function properly." "The recovery of oil prices must compensate for the people, address the deficit, and provide job opportunities for unemployed youth. This will reinvigorate the market, put an end to corruption, and activate the private sector," he said. Gradual Revaluation Economist Dhurgham Mohamed Ali said that revaluating the dinar shall be contingent upon several factors, "The exchange rate of the dollar should be gradually reduced to 1,300 dinars while keeping an eye on the cash transactions to preclude creating a black market, dollar smuggling, and tighten the control over imports." "The outcomes of the devaluation were detrimental. The inflation rates grew, poverty rates soared, while development rates remained static and foreign currency smuggling exacerbated," Ali added. Neglecting the private sector "The government has not contributed to reducing the poverty gap and unemployment after raising the dollar rates that inflicted all the strata of society," trader Amir Mohammed al-Hasani told Shafaq News agency, "Its concern was how to pay the salaries of officials and ministers without considering the negative aspects of the devaluation." "The government should have combated the widespread corruption in the Iraqi state, revived the private sector by eliminating the obstacles hindering its growth and activating laws that would provide support and protection to this important sector," al-Hasani said. "The rise in the dollar has hurt us as foodstuff prices have risen to more than 30% despite the steady salaries we earn," Hussein al-Khafaji, an employee of the Ministry of Education, told Shafaq News agency. "My salary ends by the middle of the month, forcing me to look for another job to meet the needs of the family," he said, calling on the government to revaluate the dinar. For its part, a government source told Shafaq News agency that the dollar rates will remain unchanged in the fiscal year 2022. "There is no change or incident that causes the exchange rate to change," the source said, adding, "the Ministry of Finance has confirmed this." "Over the previous nine months, the ministry has constantly followed the indicators of devaluation against the dollar," the Ministry of Finance stated on October 5, 2021. The exchange rate alteration has contributed to a rise in the Central Bank's foreign reserves to 60 billion dollars in April 2021, up from 54 billion dollars in December 2020. According to the Finance Ministry, the currency rate shift also helped "reduce the demand for foreign currency, lower the dependence on imports, and enhance local production." "In the context of the crisis, there has been a clear recovery in corporate activity in the last nine months of this year," the Finance Ministry stated. According to the ministry, it is working to "reinvest the revenues of the funds achieved to build a target production base outside the oil sector and rely on other sectors, which will contribute to the decline in demand for the dollar as a result of compensating some of the goods produced." Since the current government's formation, the ministry has adopted plans and mechanisms to reform Iraq's fiscal policy, culminated in adopting the "White Paper", which outlined future economic and financial policy steps to promote domestic production and reduce imports for the country.
  9. Not only does Malarki look like a mob boss, but he is a MOB BOSS.. Why would anyone have any respect for him and his boys.....
  10. For the life of me, I can not believe “Tator” is still being the meanest, greediest, non Iraqi in all the land and is still not in prison or dead…. Oh wait… this story sounds remarkably familiar…. kind of like our nutty assed American pres supposedly acting on behalf of all Americans, fracking us with every step of his way….. 😂🤣😂
  11. They are dumber then arock it they think anyone is going to put anymore money into their country. Here we are back where we were right before ISIS hit. Complete with Maliki and Iran threatening to climb back in the saddle and run Iraq till their is nothing left to give again. Plus this time we don’t have Trump and Mad Dog at the helm to drive them all back under their rocks they all crawled out from under…. 🤬
  12. I'm starting to re-imagine the US in the New World Order as a third world country. I am quiet certain they will not be happy until the rug has completely been pulled out from under us.... and it is our own US citizens doing this to us. The rich to gain more power and the not so rich for money. A lot of people hate Biden, I hate Mark Miley. I would put money on it that he is putting illegal aliens in the US Armed forces as he knows US soldiers will not fire upon American citizens. But you give some people 3 squares, a great monthly paycheck, and clean linens on a bed ever night and they will do what you ask of them to do.
  13. Although I must confess, this certainly does not sound very brotherly or Martyr like.... In fact it sounds an awful lot like Iran just took over Iraq again.... No wonder the US Government is very happy to comply. They seem to love doing business with Iran, Russia, and Venezuela.... "He added, "That government can go ahead and continue with certainty," noting that "any coup in Iraq will not happen with the presence of the supreme authority, Ali al-Sistani and the Popular Mobilization."
