Post From IQD CALLS  Chat Room

 Newbee   hello.. should I buy some dinar? just kidding... Mountain Goat said 50 dinar bill has been released, does anyone know if this is true or just rumor? Thanks!

Dave   Newbee check out

Wilder   Did he offer any proof?

Dave   cbi would state what is in circulation

Newbee   it wasn't on so prob rumor... MG posted this on Dinarguru a few days back and I had a hard time believing it was actually true... MG is usually pretty conservative, so kinda surprising

Dave   is a rumor if not posted by cbi

Newbee   thanks Dave

Dave   no problem.....

Dave   Zeros will not change the value of the currency, and will help ease the circulation of currency and fragmentation and storage and calculation .. These are good qualities of the currency, the most important of which stability and confidence.      # Adel_Abdulmahdi

Dave   Mahdi seems to be on the same page with CBI

Dave   however will let Sandyf offer their own interpretation as to what this means

chattels   US and Israel behind explosions at Iran-backed militia bases: Muhandis By Lawk Ghafuri

chattels   ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — A leader of Iraq’s Iran-backed Shiite militias has blamed the US and Israel for recent explosions at the militia’s bases in Iraq.

The deputy chairman of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF, also known as Hashd al-Shaabi) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis said that the US and Israel were the ones who targeted a weapon depot and other PMF targets in Iraq recently in order to weaken the group.

“We have evidence that shows US has brought four Israeli drones into Iraq,” Muhandis said in a post on the PMF’s Facebook page.

“US are using the drones to target the PMF and Iraqi bases, rather than targeting Daesh,” he added, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State (ISIS)

chattels   Lawsuit filed against Iraqi Kurdistan gov’t and Ashti Hawrami over illegal oil activities: Oilprice

Posted on August 21, 2019 by Editorial Staff

chattels   It is in the tiny detail at the end of ‘The Change of Control’ clause 39.7 that the devil lurks, as the last line reads: “…request the consent of Government, which consent shall not be unreasonably delayed or withheld.”

In this context, a source close to the KRG’s Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) told, what factors and/or length of time a straight-up businessman might think is unreasonable is not what an MNR official might think is unreasonable if he is not being offered either cash or a free share in the project – or both, depending on how senior he is.

 “Once he gets what’s he wants then the official will agree that the previous objection was unreasonable and that the length of delay was unreasonable and now everything’s fine and can go ahead,” the MNR source underlined.

chattels   The evidence as presented in the court papers appears compelling and, given that the same U.K. court granted UAE-based Crescent Petroleum and Dana Gas a landmark verdict against the KRG, it is expected that a similarly positive result will be awarded but in a much quicker timeframe, given that the legal precedents are now fully and clearly laid out in that jurisdiction and court.

chattels   Iran-backed militias blame US for attacks on bases in Iraq


chattels   Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk

This may be nitpicking but the phrasing "Iran wields powerful influence over the Iraqi government through its support of the PMF militias" is misleading if it implies that the Iraqi govt is a coherent entity which even could be influenced as a whole.

chattels   The article does note, importantly, that Muhandis seems to have issued this statement entirely on a unilateral basis. Formally he isn't even the head of the Hashd, Falih al-Fayyad, who would not have issued such a statement, is supposed to be. But of course he's a fig leaf.

In case you somehow missed it, this recent @Mikeknightsiraq paper is one of the most important published on the Hashd in a very long time. It is essential background to this situation.

Dave   chattels Thought the IMF absorbed the PMF?

chattels   Kirk Sowell has a very low opinion of Iraqi government.

Goofus   future oh goodie - I think I'll buy another 10 M or so. (In a pig's eye)

Goofus   8-21-2019 Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat ...the flood gates have opened and the news is pouring in. ...The parliamentary finance committee has decided that the CBI needs to move to the next step of the “project to delete the zeros” and put the Iraqi dinar on a “level playing field” with the rest of the middle east currencies.

Yesterday they came out with the announcement to re-mint the Iraq coins once again. They are saying they now need to put together legislation in which to give the CBI permission to do so...

Goofus   Here we go -- don't think I'll take the bait. Won't sell what I have --- but not another nickle. Thank you.
