Interesting how many of us jump to complain, criticize or otherwise do a Donald Downer, or Debbie Downer.

 

Reading the whole sentence, it says ".... Recommendation to the House of Representatives to wait on the approval of the draft law on oil and gas until the completion of the draft law" (with tip of the hat to 6ly410)

 

I understand this as "let's finish the draft before we approve any of it". Common sense in my book, jus sayin'

 

LET'S DO THI$ !!!

 

 

 

I'm with you. I don't see a problem with the statement. My interpretation is they are waiting to vote on the draft until it is completed. Seems reasonable.

Hi everyone, I don't say a whole lot on here because I'm busy reading and trying to absorb all the information that Yota and all the other amazing news hounds post. I have to interject, If you read the WHOLE statement ( Recommendation to the House of Representatives to wait on the approval of the draft law on oil and gas until the completion of the draft law to amend the law of the National Oil Company and the completion of the draft law on oil and gas before the Council of State.) They are waiting on the draft law to amend the law of the National Oil Company. Which if I remember correctly they split the Oil and Gas Law up into three sections and the National Oil Company was one of the three... They did it so it could be passed faster and they rushed the law of the National Oil Company through and passed it... Now if I also remember correctly that the National Oil Company is the entity that is responsible for distributing the profits of the oil to the Iraqi people so I am sure that they are try to make dang sure that that entity National Oil Company and all the responsibility of that undertaking is written correctly and then once that Amendment is done and passed then complete the passage of the rest of the Oil and Gas Law... How long that amendment will take it's anybodies guess but it seems to me that there is a fire under there slow moving a$$'s and they want to get it done quicker than "SOON" or they wouldn't be talking about it again... JMHO

Thank you, and dont mind the negativity nelly's. We appreciate your input.

Welcome warmblood1323 . Fresh newbie blood with a new set of eyes, and a brain , seems to be exactly what we needed to get us out of our " been in this long enough " complacency . And therefore we expect them to kick the can down the road, and then RV. I like the reminder of Parliaments splitting up the Oil and Gas Law to make it easier to pass each section individually . Shoot I forgot about that, and I may say that I just don't recall that bit-o-news. It makes no sense you got  a rubie for sharing your info and opinion. I have always said (except when I give rubies) Those who give rubies, must have done dubbies, in a van down by the river.

Everything you stated is correct. This has gotten to the point where every eye must be crossed and every tee dotted because when they finally do it they don't want any factions jumping up yelling "Unconstitutional!" And taking it to their Supreme Court which will put in kibosh limbo. 

I will say my dream where toilet paper came out of an ATM with the number 19 streaking down to the bottom/end of the paper it spit out as I celebrated my new found wealth, I am now convinced to interpret it as this is a fluid situation that will come to pass between now and the end of 2019 but not into 2020 because there was no 20 nor any more paper by the time the 19 ended. Hopefully this is a correct interpretation.

The "Fat Lady" ain't singing for anyone, anywhere,  anytime soon.  Hell...I suggest that she look into a more predictable career path.  The Iraq  bureaucracy is going to keep her off the stage for as long as they can.

I have a plan to get them to pass the oil law: Just riot three weeks in the streets. Oh wait, that's what is already happening. There is hope then. They needed people to riot, in order to get the elite moving. I support the rioters. I hope they keep it up! Iraq is rich, but corrupt. The only things that work are riots. I am very hopeful now. 😃

FOR 16 years years Opportunist Career Criminal Politicians Hijacked Iraq. They looted, pillaged and padded their Bank accounts with an obscene amount of perhaps up to $450 Billion ? Now the very same think they can calm things with feeble, pathetic & repugnant Excuses as . . . " it can't be solved in a day " or " there's no magic wand to fix this overnight "  ! ? ! ? ! ( I paraphrase slightly ). These statements will only further enrage a population already fed up with inept & irresponsible behavior from Corrupt Bureaucrats.

 

This shows an alarming & disturbing disconnect of Iraq's political ruling ELITE. This is absolutely despicable, shameful, reprehensible & irresponsible behavior. Iraqis I'm sure will continue to work towards the day when these criminals are brought to justice . . . Iraqi Style.

 

At least the Speaker of Parliament Halibousi is reaching out/trying to connect/bringing the demonstators to Parliament/confabbing with them and listening to their Demands, in an attempt to prevent the country from plunging into anarchy ( I would hope there are other MPs on board as well ). Time's Up, huh - IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED:tiphat:
