He added that "when the new American president comes, it is certain that he will have a specific policy, especially with regard to presence in Iraq," stressing that "the Iraqi parliament has passed a law to remove the American forces and pressure has been put in place to implement it."

The Pentagon recently issued a notice to commanders, known as a "warning order," to begin planning to reduce the number of US forces to 2,500 troops in Afghanistan and 2,500 in Iraq by January 15, according to military officials.

from the beginning.

True that . Also the American people want a end to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  President Trump originally campaigned on ending our involment in endless wars. Another campaign promise fulfilled. We will still have involvement,  just far less than the 50,000 troops we still have on the Korean peninsula.

Al-Sharifi concluded, "There are those who seek to introduce the legislative and executive powers into an electoral register, and we need radical solutions before it is too late."
And the Acting US Defense Secretary, Christopher C. Miller, announced, Tuesday, that Washington decided to withdraw its forces from Afghanistan and Iraq in the coming hours.

I think the U.S. redeployment tells me we are near the end. Adam Montana said a short time ago, this thing will be settled, as far as currency trading and the value of the Iraqi Dinar, within a short time period, six months at most. I don't remember AM's exact timeline. Let's guess by May 2020.

 

Once Iraq is no longer occupied at all, it will be up to Iraq to sort everything out. It's success or miserable failure depends on it's elites, not on America. Also America has it's own oil now, doesn't need to be there. America has fracking and as much oil as it wants, for however long it wants it, in Alberta. This changes everything.

 

(Baghdad: Al-Furat News) The security expert, Ahmed Al-Sharifi, revealed, on Tuesday evening, the goal of the withdrawal of US forces from Iraq, while he warned of an equation he called "very difficult."...


While he expected "the United States of America to prepare for a new military operation, which led to the announcement of the withdrawal of forces from Iraq and Afghanistan," ...

 

The possibility exists in an anticipated regional conflict and incoming military operations. "
Sharifi added " end quote.

 

My comment: Yep, this American re-deployment could blow up badly. At this point the success or failure of Iraq, it's not up to America, it's up to the elite in Iraq. In Iraq, they have a lot of crooked ethnic groups and religious arguing over pools of money and oil. My guess is, once America fully leaves Iraq, the ethnically dominant Shiite Arabs will impose a Saddam like dictatorship on the rest of the population. The Arab Shiite have roughly 60% of the population total and are often aligned with Iran, who are also Shiite, though different ethnically. As you recall Saddam was a minority Sunni Arab. The Sunni, who are roughly 20% of the population, often brutalized the other 80% of people in Iraq. Under Saddam's reign the minority Sunni controlled all the money and oil and the 20% Sunni minority was able to control the other 80% majority of Iraqis, because the minority Sunnis controlled the military. Now it's the majority Iraqi Arab Shiite's turn to be bastards. They will.

 

....or maybe Iran and Saudi Arabia will have a war over the oil and control of the region. My advice would be to arm the Saudis, let them fight it out with the Persian Iranians. 

 

I think "democracy" will be a complete and utter failure in most of the middle east. Iraq can't handle it. Hell, even America....an infinitely better country than Iraq.... is having trouble handling "democracy" for reasons I won't get into. So I think democracy is done in Iraq. Finished. No more "nation building". Let them sort it out, to end up with the type of government that 'works' for their culture. 

 

Summing up, Vermont is a charming place with decent civilized people and a functioning democracy. You can't turn Bagdad into Vermont.

 

My guess is, 'the money' will still work out for us Iraqi Dinar investors. Iraq still has to trade internationally, they still need badly, to trade their currency internationally, this means they still must respect international trade and financial rules...which means they must have a currency that is respected and useful around the world. We will win. :bagofmoney::flagsmiley:

Unfortunately I have to agree to a certain extent! Hopefully my edict will be true in the fact we may lose some of the money but not all! Where the disaster comes for me is all the time wasted tracking this SnAfu! In Texas we call this a snipe hunt! I think every boy and some girls got to go on an all night snipe! I hate to admit it but I went on 2 snipe hunts before I figured out what was going on!! I m trusting divine intervention on this election! We have already seen the Biden/ obama rodeo before and it was a disaster! The problem for me about this election is we all knew the President Trump was going to be played! These subversive DemoRats did nothing but try and destroy the President! They just had a final act! It looks bad for the home team! I just have one question for all of my Dinar vets members! Did you enjoy your SNIPE hunt??? JMHO :cisole:

Why in the hell would he remove the Soldiers against the advice of the Top Military Officials? Really? We have already been down that road before when Maliki was in Office and would not grant immunity to the US Soldiers and we saw how that worked out! This investment is becoming unhealthy and people are suffering because of political decisions on both sides. Iran is lobbing missiles for the hell of it! Iraq needs to grow a pair and do something about Iran as well! Regardless of who is in the White House...JUST DO YOUR DAMN JOB for the people and not party affiliation. Politicians are just that.....POLITICIANS!! I don't put my hope or trust in none of them! i am going to find more information on the Dong because I have a feeling we are not going to see an RV in January.....geessh!!

The words you just spoke, is the best statement I have read in the last two weeks regarding US politicians, Russia has made great marks against our military, and know one is not even mentioned anything about the bounties that is offered to hunt down US Soldiers in Afghanistan, you just hear crickets on this issue.

We need peace and security on our US soil from both sides!

Putin accomplished dividing America up like he said he would. It has played out. And yes my kids are active US military, I suffer from some of their pain!

Baghdad: Abdul Rahman Ibrahim 
 
 
Coinciding with the arrival of Iraq and the United States to an agreement to announce the withdrawal of 500 other American forces, bringing the total number of those forces present to 2,500 soldiers, seven missiles were fired yesterday at Baghdad, four of which fell in the Green Zone, and three outside, resulting in The death of a child and wounding of five civilians.

Maruto added that "the international coalition continues to support the Iraqi government, at its request, in the pursuit of stability and security in Iraq."
The British ambassador to Iraq, Stephen Hickey, described the missile attack as "an attempt to undermine the stability of Iraq, noting that these attacks by armed groups outside the law only terrify the Iraqis."
In turn, the Joint Operations Command threatened the launchers of the rockets, confirming in a statement that it had initiated procedures to diagnose the perpetrators in order to receive their fair penalty and that the girl’s martyrdom would not pass without prosecution and accountability.
And the joint added, "Some of the forces outside the law and the national consensus, and the vision of the religious authority, insist on obstructing the path of achieving sovereign achievements, and reaffirms their bet on shuffling the cards and fighting stability, to serve their narrow interests and goals far from the national interest."
Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein held a meeting with the US ambassador to Iraq, Matthew Tueller, and a number of military commanders from Iraq and the United States, to discuss the paragraphs of the strategic dialogue. Immediately after the meeting, Hussein stated in a press conference, “During the meeting, it was agreed upon the redeployment of US forces outside Iraq". Hussein added, "After the important contact between Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, it was agreed to withdraw 500 military personnel, as the remaining number of soldiers will reach 2,500."
He pointed out that "the nature of the remaining forces will not be combat, and we have entered the fourth and final stage, which includes entering stage zero with the end of the fourth stage, and the combat operations that were caused by the entry of ISIS gangs into Iraq will end." On the targeting of the Green Zone, the Minister of Foreign Affairs said: It is "a blatant attack by criminal and terrorist groups on the Green Zone," considering that targeting "an attack on the Iraqi government and the Iraqi people, which inflicted civilian casualties."
