Why are you guys predicting an RV in the next 30 days?  

What does the rocket landing in the Green Zone have to do with RV?

 

OMG, I Don't know about my Friend @Synopsisbut for me consider it satirical ramblings. Seems things were getting a little hot up in here. 

 

Truth of the matter is we could have an RV tomorrow or another 14 years from now, so just roll with it folks.

This is not putting down LGD at all.  This is simply pointing out the inherit biasness around here.  He predicts an RV in thirty days which is fine by me!  But notice not one single thumbs down.  If Navira, myself, or 6 would do it, we would get reds.

There may be a bias around here, but it is warranted.  Yota has provided all pertinent information which allows others to make decisions, predictions, guesses or whatever.  Without his input Adam wouldn't have a site.  I have always felt Adam wouldn't be the one advising me of an RV but Yota would.  Any attack or negativity toward Yota is unnecessary and should be reconsidered.  He has more than earned his stripes around here.

@Botzwana No offense taken by me.  I really was just trying to make a joke and lighten things up. 

I haven't a clue if or when this will happen. But I suspect if it is going to happen this thing with Iran is a major part of what we all want to see.  We all know that Iran and their conhorts in the Iraqi government have been the biggest problem all along.

Iraq’s Iran-backed militias repudiate missile attack on Baghdad’s Green Zone

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Iran-backed Shia militia leaders on Monday distanced themselves from a rocket attack a day earlier that was directed at the Iraqi capital’s fortified Green Zone, landing near the US embassy complex.

The attack, conducted using a Katyusha rocket with no casualties reported, came amid escalating tensions between Washington and Tehran, as the former re-imposed and later compounded economic and political sanctions on Iran after it withdrew last year from the landmark nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The US recently announced further military deployments to the Persian Gulf to deter possible attacks by Iranian forces and its proxies across the Middle East. Washington also ordered on Wednesday the departure of nonessential US staff in its mission offices across Iraq and the Kurdistan Region and suspended visa services.

Concerns over potential attacks by Iran-backed entities in Iraq have piled among other diplomatic offices. On Thursday, British paper The Guardian reported, citing two intelligence sources, that famed Iranian general Qasim Soleimani, head of the Quds force of the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), had earlier met with Iraqi militia leaders and told them to “prepare for a proxy war.”

I don't see LGD popping the cork everyday. You seem to be still upset from the past thinking I was targeting you for some reason because of your beliefs, which I have no clue on what your talking about. I ask you not to bring rumors over an post them in the News Section that was it. This is pin on the top which was posted by K98  When posting in the news forum...Rule # 6. Do not post rumors in the news forum. As a Mod for DV I go by the rules, in which I didn't make those Rules but I will stand by them an enforce them. Here the whole list of rules that some folks may need refreshing or acquainted with them.

1. Read what's already posted in the forum first so as to avoid double and triple posting the same information.

2. Read the story you are going to post BEFORE you post it.

3. Ask yourself if it is relevant to the interests of the members of this site. Do we care? Does it have anything to do with the Iraqi economy, the dinar, the state of security, the political process, etc??

4. Check the date of the story for timeliness.

5. ALWAYS include a hyperlink to the story so the validity of the information can be determined.

6. Do not post rumors in the news forum.

7. Make sure it is Iraqi/Dinar related news. ISX news goes under the ISX section.

8. Please choose a prefix, either Iraq news or Dinar news, whichever category it falls under.

Thanks!

Iraqi security forces in the Green Zone in Baghdad
Iraqi security forces in the Green Zone in Baghdad

RODAO, IRBIL - 

Iraqi forces have said they do not intend to take any precautions to enhance the security of US units, saying the probe into a missile strike near the US embassy in Baghdad is only being conducted by Iraq. 

"The security authorities are continuing the investigation process, and if any results are reached, they will be officially announced," the spokesman for the Joint Operations Command, Brigadier General Yehia Rasool, was quoted as saying by the Sputnik news agency on Monday. 

The messenger said that "the investigation is being conducted by the Iraqi side only and no participation of the International Alliance or the US side, and the Iraqi security services are able to reach results."

In response to a question on whether Baghdad has taken additional precautions near US bases and places of American presence in the country, Rasoul added: "I do not think, the American forces are operating within the Iraqi military bases, and these bases are insured by Iraqi military sectors, and I think the situation is very normal, Which is within the rules and is the one that provides all these places. " 

The security information cell of the Joint Operations Command of the Iraqi forces, confirmed on Sunday evening, the fall of a rocket "Katyusha" in the Green Zone, downtown Baghdad, without causing damage or loss.

By now they certainly must realize they are not dealing with some spaghetti spine POTUS !!!

 

This isn’t the watering hole where 2 opposing sides flailing their hands, scream, shout & Wave their Brown Eye 👁 at each other expecting the other to back down. Might go over big in your neck of the palm trees 🌴. If Trump gave the NOD, we could turn Iran into a smoking hole in the ground. 

They better “ stop while Theres still time “

Saleh leads a movement towards linking Iraq with its Arab depth

Major Shiite leaders warn of mixing papers after the Green Zone missile
Tuesday - 16 Ramadan 1440 AH - 21 May 2019 AD Issue Number [14784]
 
 
1558356712081992500.jpg?itok=z1ZfA1e8
Baghdad: Hamza Mustafa
The launch of a Katyusha rocket on the Green Zone coincided with a high-level political meeting at the headquarters of President Barham Salih, in addition to Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi and parliamentarian Mohammed Halboussi, the most prominent Shiite leaders; Hadi al- (Former prime minister), Haidar al-Abadi (former prime minister), Ammar al-Hakim (leader of the Wisdom movement), Faleh al-Fayadh (national security adviser and head of the Popular Popular Authority), Qais al-Khazali.
While conflicting positions on the beneficiary of the launch of such a missile on the Green Zone, where the headquarters of the US Embassy, coincided with the meeting, which was away from the media appeared, according to an informed source spoke «Middle East», asking not to mention his name or identity, "Pointing out that they did not take positions that seem to be biased to the American position in one way or another without taking into consideration the seriousness of the American threats through their vessels, aircraft and missiles close to Iran. 
According to the same source, "the main objective of the meeting was to try to distance themselves from this conflict, as well as to oblige all political forces and factions not to issue positions that weaken the Iraqi government and ensure that the initiative in the face of this conflict remains the hand of the government, but no other party.
For its part, announced the largest Shiite leaders express condemnation of what it called attempts to mix the cards or to engage the Iraqi people in the midst of this conflict. "I am not fueling the war between America and Iran, and I am not putting Iraq in this war and making it a battlefield for the Iranian-American conflict," said Sadr's leader Moqtada al-Sadr in a statement. He added: "We need a serious stand with the senior people to keep Iraq away from that fierce war that will eat the green and land and make it rumored." 
The head of the Fatah alliance Hadi al-Amiri described those who are trying to ignite the war between Iran and America that they are ignorant and trampled. "We affirm that national, religious and historical responsibility requires everyone to remove the specter of war from Iraq first and from the whole region," Amiri said in a statement. "If war ignites, God forbid, everyone will be burned, so anyone who tries to ignite the war from Iraq is either ignorant or trampled," he said.
Qais al-Khazali, the leader of Asaib Ahl al-Haq, called for "not to mix the papers." He pointed out that "the supposed war is not in the interest of the Islamic Republic of Iran or the United States of America. He added: «We warn of the confusion of papers intended to find the pretexts of war and intended to damage the political situation, Iraq, economic and security».
For his part, the leader of the stream of wisdom, Ammar al-Hakim that «the recent US-Iranian escalation is causing concern in all countries of the region and threatens its security and stability», welcome «some recent statements that indicate the parties' keenness to reduce the conflict». Al-Hakim pointed out that "the security of the diplomatic missions in Iraq is the responsibility of the Iraqi state. In turn, these missions must send positive messages about the political and security situation in Iraq, after reaching advanced stages, Iraq.
In the same context, the specialist security expert Hisham al-Hashemi said in a statement to Asharq Al-Awsat that "targeting the Green Zone, whether by a reckless enthusiasm by an armed Iraqi supporter of Iran's positions or by another party outside the calculations of the parties to the American-Iranian conflict. Iraq, it has embarrassed the credibility of the security assurances provided by the Iraqi government to foreign and Arab missions in the capital Baghdad and the Green Zone ». "If the Iraqi government does not know who targeted the Green Zone, it means that it is unable to monopolize its arms, either if it knows the perpetrator and its inability to bring it to justice, it means that it is not neutral in the Iranian-American conflict."
According to the information obtained by «Middle East» from a politician close to the atmosphere of the meeting sponsored by Iraqi President Barham Saleh, it was «agreement on the creation of internal political cohesion produces important outputs; the first is to create an integrative approach played by the government and political parties in line with what is happening on Both internal and external, "noting that« this comes because all parties realize that the escalation will be reflected in the negative effects clearly on Iraq, which has just emerged from a costly war with the organization calling for the terrorist ». He explained that the political informed that «has been agreed on several issues, such as the empowerment of state institutions in the light of a strategy of action based on the commitment to the Constitution and professional foundations to restore prestige and strengthen respect and strengthen the confidence of citizens, and the exclusive possession of state institutions with jurisdiction and promote integration does not interrupt its security, And the fight against corruption, which penetrated into the depth of the state ».
He stressed the politician informed that «was stressed the importance of Iraq to restore its accounts in accordance with a national vision based on the rejection of policy axes, and avoid Iraq to be the arena for settling disputes and settling accounts or a platform for aggression against any other country, and Iraq to be a yard for the compatibility of economic interests and work with partners The region to establish a regional system based on the common security interest and economic integration with the Islamic neighborhood and the depth of the Arab ». 
The Iraqi politician said that «Iraq will initiate contact with neighboring countries and brothers, to find a framework for periodic dialogue on regional problems, and the establishment of cooperation among the countries of the region and reduce tension and prevent the aggravation of the problems, not ignoring the importance of continued cooperation in the fight against terrorism».
On the presence of foreign military forces, the informed politician said, "It was agreed that the presence of these forces is subject to the agreed controls between these forces and the Iraqi government, and its mission is limited to enabling the Iraqi forces in its war against terrorism. The coordination and cooperation between Iraq and the international coalition countries on the side Security, and even extended to the economic and scientific aspects, reconstruction and relief of the displaced, and in other areas, so requires that we work to strengthen these relations and consolidation and in order to secure Iraq's higher interests. The presence of foreign forces can not be part of any action that detracts from Iraqi sovereignty or targeting the security of neighboring countries, knowing that Iraq will not accept the establishment of permanent foreign military bases on its territory.

Yep.  I don't understand the red rubys either.  You and everyone else is entitle to say soon , any day,  next week, next year or next millennium.  Most people don't post dates outside of the rumor forum.  Most say why they think what they think by posting articles, intellectual thinking and scenario playing.  I see nothing wrong with that.  Even the rumor forums don't deserve reds IMO as I'm not forced to go and read them.

 

BTW, I predict an RV in 30 days.  I'm just not sure which 30 days it will be.  LOL

Okay, what is all the fuss about....I see some being happy, positive and up lifting have a beer, do a shot or pop a bottle and be happy.

 

Then there are those that are here he the attitude to will never happen, it might happen next year.....I tune those people out.....They have their Opinion but it doesn't fit my Agenda.

 

We have the Trump Supporters and we have the Never Trump Crowd.......

 

There is a simple fix.....If you have problems with a way a certain member thinks or posts just put them on Ignore in you Prefenrence Setting and be done with it.

 

In my Opinion most everyone here brings something worth while to the table.....Those that constantly find fault with this country, the Dully Elected President and a few others I have on Ignore and don't bother with them.......

 

Life is Simple, life is Good, life is too Short to deal with people you don'r care for. Then again, because you don't like them don't back life miserable for me or the rest of the forum.

 

No back to the pending war and see what is happening.

 

And who the hell gives a crap about Red Rubies.....
