  1. Frankly, you shouldn't accuse someone of not being legit, if you have no clue what your talking about. Yes, after many years of providing what I consider to be a very valuable interpretation of the news we get from Iraq (FOR FREE) several members of his site convinced him that the site should go private. He didn't make that decision on his own. I know this because I was one of the ones who said he should. Just because it is a private site does not give you or anyone else the right to say he is not legit.. I know the man personally, and he is no Guru, doesn't claim to be, and hates to be called
  2. (I posted my thoughts on this elsewhere a few day's ago when this article first surfaced. Hope you don't mind me voicing my opinion here. This is simply my personal belief with no intel whatsoever to back it up. We all know, you can't really pin Iraq down on anything, nor can you place much if anything they say at face value. My opinion is however the same now as when I first wrote it. It is however, jmo). RSS I love this article! If memory serves me correctly, years ago China stated they would never revalue the yuan. Heck they even put that statement in an American ne
  3. Wow! I never ( and I mean NEVER ) post here anymore, but the old timers on here know me, and they know I don't post junk. That being said allow me to say that you murd11 need to take a SERIOUS chill pill.
  4. Great article. The original event actually happened on 12-14-2014 http://english.shafaaq.com/index.php/politics/12492-first-ground-clash-between-isis-and-us-forces-in-iraq
  5. Not so fast. If in fact this article is true (I have my doubts), then the 15 day ratification provision of the budget has not started. Article 73 of the Constitution of Iraq states the powers of the President. Article 73 says: Section three: Third: To ratify and issue the laws enacted by the Council of Representatives. Such laws are considered ratified after fifteen days from the date of receipt by the President. Thus, if the article being discussed here were true, and the President of the Republic has indeed not received it, then the 15 days has not even begun ( JMO)
  6. Hello folks! I rarely post here anymore but would like to weigh in on this one. I most definitely agree that this is exciting news: Something that we have spent years waiting on. The problem is...We are still waiting, but not for long I don't think. The Federal budget for 2015 included provisions of agreements between the Kurdistan region and Baghdad, which should indeed bring on the HCL in quick fashion. My point is try to stay grounded. I know that isn't easy. I have been in this so long and seen so many highs and lows, and the news is so awesome right now, that I am having a hard time stay
  7. While I agree with your premise that our notes will be fine, I would have to disagree with your "reprint" statement. I have a couple of notes...None of mine has Kurdish language, and if any of you have one with it, I'd love to see a pic of that note.
  8. I don't post much here anymore, but would like to weigh in my opinon on this one if I may. Granted, what you stated about the process is true. President names PM designate. PM designate has 30 days to form and name his cabinet and submit the names of each, as well as his platform. Each member of the cabinet must be voted on individually, with approval requiring an absolute majority ( half plus one). IMO, with all the talk of a unified non sectarian govt, of which I truly believe Abbadi is indeed attempting to form, the only point we may disagree on is the ease of which this will be accomplish
  9. As I stated above, this news source is out of Jordan. The site seems legit, however no one else is reporting it. 24 hours have passed, and news this major, if true, would have been picked up by MULTIPLE news sources by now. I think it is merely one writers opinion to grab a headline.
  10. Absolutely no confirmation of this. One article from Jordan means squat without confirmation. If this were a fact, it would be on MULTIPLE Arabic sites. I haven't found it anywhere.
  11. The agenda of the session (1) Tuesday (12) August 2014 July 7, 2014 First: A Wyatt read from the Koran. Second: the resumption of the first session of the meeting by the President (Head of age). Third, sworn for ladies and gentlemen deputies parliamentary session third of those who never had it. Fourth: the election of the President of the House of Representatives and his deputies. Session start time: eleven in the morning.
  12. Hmmmm. No longer being reported by one source. I am surprised. Hope it isn't going down this way, but not looking good. Not ready to concede what I said earlier just yet, but if I'm wrong, unlike the Gurus, I won't spin it. I'll just say I was wrong.......again. Thanks Thug!
  13. Thanks to paythatman ( another forum) Baqir al-Zubaidi expects the Federal Court to ratify the election results during the next three days 15/06/2014 14:04:00 BAGHDAD / NINA / LINK: http://ninanews.com/english/News_Details.asp?ar95_VQ=HEMJHD The head of the citizen bloc, Baqir al-Zubaidi called the Federal Court to expedite the ratification of the election results, expected to be approved during the two or three days ahead. He told the National Iraqi News Agency / NINA / today that "speeding up the ratification of the election results is important and necessary t
  14. I agree Thug, newshounds just post em. We don't write em. As for this one, I too expect to see a harsh rebutal soon. I have been checking multiple news sources, and 8th day is the only one I can find reporting this. If it were true, I think there would be multiple sources jumping on this one. I think valu got your network confused with the other guys, you know the clowns on TV. ( The lady clowns there have very attractive gams by the way). Personally, I think this article is most likely very incorrect. Thanks for posting it though. A good newshound always reports the good, bad, and the ugly
  15. I tend to agree with Ron. We all know Maliki controls the majority of the news, and while these articles are indeed in the news, I feel it is Pure Baloney. Period. I think that Maliki's reign is over. RSS
  16. Thanks starlight. I posted it, but Markinsa was correct. It is in the middle of this thread. Butifldrm posted the whole thing. Great news for us.

Issuance of New Iraq-Related Executive Order 5/27/2014 LINK: http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/OFAC-Enforcement/Pages/21040527.aspx The President signed an Executive Order (E.O.), "Ending Immunities Granted to the Development Fund for Iraq and Certain Other Iraqi Property Pursuant to Executive Order 13303, as Amended," terminating the prohibitions contained in Executive Order 13303 of May 22,2003, as amended, on any attachment, judgment, decree, lien, execution, garnishment, or other judicial process with respect to the Development Fund for Iraq and Iraqi petrol
  18. Well buddy, you make a very good point. You've come a long way in your thinking my friend. Kudos. RSS
  19. While I can see where your coming from, one must remember that EO13303 can be lifted at anytime.

  22. Saleh isn't really a politician, more the Banker/Economist type, and who knows what is really going on in their heads over there?
