  1. And when the tiger bites them, who will they turn to then? China is not as forgiving as the US. When these idjits look towards China for help and receive it then default, China will come in and take control of their country. They w ill take all profit making streams for themselves first, and it will be like a snowball rolling down a hill until it becomes a full on avalanche. Put your hand in the tiger’s cage and it will be bitten off.
  2. No he set off the vest intentionally as all reports indicate

Cornered, IS chief Baghdadi blows himself up with 3 kids WASHINGTON/BAGHDAD:Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the elusive leader of the dreaded Islamic State (IS) terror group, died like a coward, “whimpering and crying” in a US raid, American President Donald Trump said.

  4. You should add zinc to that concoction. 8mg for women and 11mg for men is recommended dose. The key takeaway is that zinc lowers the risk for respiratory infection. I was told early on that zinc was used in conjunction with the hydroxychloroquine to improve recovery rate and length. Hydroxychloroquine itself is not enough nor is VitC or D3 by themselves without the zinc. I also complement my intake of C and D3 and Zinc with L-Lysine to support immune function. Do not wear a mask to this day. According to the European Journal of Immunology, the human body needs zinc to activat

  7. Considering Oil is the main export and source of income for the GOI, this was an issue the last time. No one could agree and the ones put forward were all rejected. IMF and WB and possibly others won't see this as a full government without these two posts.Minister of Oil is required to move the Iraqi Oil and Gas law which in the end distributes proceeds to the citizens. Until this post is filled, the RV won't happen nor will it move forward because the IMF will never agree to move Iraq into Chapter 8/ Foreign Affairs brings in investment which I have long said is the benchmark to whether an RV
  8. You missed the last line of the article. This caused one of the problems that led here. So it depends on which ministers did not get appointed.If they are lower tier and the government can still operate with their absence then it could be considered a full government without a technically fully seated government, even the US Executive branch has at times worked without a full cabinet. I believe one of the minsters that remained an issue was the oil minister and maybe the education minister. Let's hope the current vacancies are not a cause for costernation within the denizens of
  9. You know what they say? Stupidity is a disease that can never be cured.
  10. HI and thanx. Iraq will definitely need to RI before it can RV. What I mean by this is that the IQD will need to be reinstated (RI) back onto the world Forex market which is currently devoid of the IQD. I only speak of an RI in that terms. When I speak numbers other than the current price point for the dinar, this is a revaluation. An RI can be done simultaneously with an RV and to some this is confusing which can be discussed later. While a 10 cent RV would be an increase in value to the reserves, true, but there are other mitigating factors that go against a 10 cent R
  11. I wrote on March 24 regarding the 2 percent rule. The paper (title colored in purple) does have the algorithm they recommended at the end of the document. As I have not seen this to be changed at this time, not sure if the current 2 percent rule is in place or the one they recommended below. Posted March 24 (edited) IMF Policy Paper: Review of the Fund's Policy on Multiple Currency Practices: Initial Consideration Is a good read not just about the Articles I mention above but does go into depth on the reasoning why MCPs are frowned upon, how they hinder the countr
  12. A RV of 10 cents will not be enough. Unless you have revised your previous statement regarding this.
  13. In June 2019, the IMF stated they were reviewing their policies and one of them included the 2% compliance rule. So the compliance rule may or may not be in effect for Iraq at this time due to the IMF's review of the policy. The staff recommended something different to the Directors of the IMF. It's been awhile since I read the report and will need to go back to it. I wouldn't hold too much into the 2% compliance issue at this time if I read the IMF paper right as the IMF Director's seemed to go with the new 2% policy which is calculated differently. I can't remember the document title at the
  14. Since the reserves are quoted in USD not in IQD, they would have to raise the IQD value to above a par value range to increase the value of their reserves.. The amount of reserves Iraq is equivalent to around 2010-2011 figures (nearly 10 bn shy of the 2014 high at 77 bn). With COVID-19 hitting the world economy hard and the world's economic forecast to be in a seriously fast downward spiral due to the pandemic, Iraq is going to have to rely more on its reserves to get them past this pandemic and if there was ever a case to be made for a RI onto the world market it would be now. However, with t

  20. • If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him. • Some how It’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America. • Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegal Mexicans voting in our elections are good. • It was cool for Joe Biden to blackmail the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it. • Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote. • Sexualizing children is bad, but 11-year-old drag queens are good.
  21. I did not see this article when I posted on another thread. I stated as much that the IMF said politely to Iraq in June 2019 that this day was coming. This is just the World Bank. The IMF is next.
  22. IMF Policy Paper: Review of the Fund's Policy on Multiple Currency Practices: Initial Consideration Is a good read not just about the Articles I mention above but does go into depth on the reasoning why MCPs are frowned upon, how they hinder the country they are implemented in and revision to the 2% market rate that so many tout Iraq should be in in order to RV. What is noteworthy, the IMF states clearly within the paper that Iraq cannot have a MCP before acceptance to Article IIIV. It goes into the history of MCPs since 1971 to 2017 and why the practice is frowned upon in general. BOP in cas
