Mnt Goat Friday Update - “We Demand Reforms, Reforms, Reforms!” Part 1 of 2

Post  Admin on Sun Mar 20, 2016 8:34 pm


Hello Everyone,

There is so much going on now in Iraq and pressure builds again to complete the needed political reforms. Remember these people are not protesting to get the RV…lol…lol…

They have told us outright what they are protesting about. They are protesting to mainly to bring these corrupt high level officials to justice.

They are also tired of all the promises to revive the economy. They want to see prosperity and growth, as they know the wealth when reading all the articles about the billions stolen from the country already.
They want the Amnesty bill and to see their friends and relatives freed from jail who have been wrongfully accused of being terrorists while the real terrorists remain in the green zone, free as party members still interfering in politics and holding back progress.

Today’s News

Today is Friday March 18th 2016. Still no RV. Sorry! No - we did not have the RV as many of these so called intel “GURUS” conference calls once again told everyone would happen last night…lol…lol…

As I have been telling everyone there are two paths that must converge in order to see the dinar RV. These paths include the political and the financial reforms. I have explained many times (until I am blue in the what must occur to get the RV. In the past I not only told you but I showed you evidence and explained why this is the case.

It’s all okay though since I recognize your ignorance and just jibber jabber. You have your sources and I have mine …lol…lol… NO Hype, NO Rumors just the FACTS!

Update: Iraqi Economy

Please read what I have marked in bold in the article below.

So we see that, as investors, we are not the only ones thinking the way we think. The parts I liked the most in this article below are the three items I quoted from the article - "with economic development in a very short time when Iraq becomes one of the world powers." ( I liked the words “very short”)

It cautions that "most of the foreign exchange earnings of Iraq has nothing to do with the Iraqi dinar directly because everything is usually purchased in US dollars." (oh - so the dinar does have value but is being artificially held back?)

“expects a recovery of Iraqi currency after the end of the war with Daash he says it will be stronger after the federal government control over the vast supply of natural resources revenues” (yes- they must get a gov’t that will responsibly control the great wealth of Iraq before they turn on the spigot of wealth going forward- this is the needed POLITICAL REFORMS)

Once again we hear acknowledgment that 1) it is the use of US dollar for foreign exchange and not the dinar (financial path) and that it is the war with DAASH but most importantly the federal gov’ts ability to control its countries own resources (political path).

We know the needed laws to satisfy both paths and we have see the stalling now mostly on the political side of the last remaining laws by the State of law coalition and in particular the Dowa party. We know there must be a breakdown of this Shiite led coalition and the heads of this coalition (last remaining corrupt officials of the Maliki administration still hiding behind the mask of the party) brought to justice for the crimes they have committed.

We know we must see a stable and secure gov’t before any RV. Iraq still has not met this requirement as long as these corrupt officials remain.

Don’t believe what I and this article above has just explained to you? Then read this article below. Please see my bold items within the article. Once again we see the political side using the terms FREE and DIVERSIFIED to describe the economy that is needed. Most importantly a FREE economy meaning to get out of the “closed” economy and go global. So what comes first the cart or the horse? At some point they must make the move to a global economy and do it even in spite of the remaining political challenges. So the pressure builds in this area too (the financial path).

Jones said during his participation in Sulaymaniyah Forum, said that "Iraq is passing through a difficult financial position and Washington gave him a loan for military purposes, valued at $ 2.7 billion," adding that "part of that loan was allocated for the Peshmerga."

He said the US ambassador to Baghdad, said that "The United States granted $ 600 million in humanitarian aid for Iraq."

Jones pointed out that "Iraq needs a free and diversified economy," noting "the importance of cooperation between the governments in Baghdad and the region in the non-oil economic areas."

He predicted Jones' collection of 10 to 15 billion dollars in financial assistance to Iraq, "stressing at the same time that it should be" looking at corruption as a crime and not to be tolerated. "

Iraq has been suffering from a severe economic crisis following a drop in oil prices since 2014, and the prohibitive cost of the military war against the "Islamic State" Daash which controlled large parts of the country, as well as the displacement of millions of citizens from their areas because of the fighting.

Update: 45 Day Deadline for Technocratic Gov’t

Just in case all of do not see exactly what is happening let me spell it out for you today.

The actions of Iraqi Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr are the only real hope we have of getting any REAL progress in the needed reforms for Iraq. These actions are the last of the real hope of forcing the judiciary to come clean and prosecute these high ranking officials from the last administration in a timely manner. You see Abadi can not do it alone since Maliki still has way too much power. Iraq must have the support and the overwhelming pressure from the citizens. This effort must come the common citizen with protection from the gov’t.

Of course we have seen and will see more rhetoric in the news of Iraq to try to discourage the citizens from partaking in these demonstration events. I have included some of the articles below. But they will continue and they may even get violent too if changes do not occur swiftly in the COMING DAYS ahead.

By the way Abadi will NEVER dissolve parliament and declare a state of emergency over these demonstrations. Nor will he resign over them.

Can you see the Maliki propaganda campaign once again? Remember this is the last struggle for Maliki to hold on to any power remaining. He knows it too and do the fight will be fierce. What tactics will he use to make the situation yet worst? Just so you know.

Iraqi Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr had urged his supporters on March 12 to prepare tents for a protest camp supposed to begin on Friday 3/18 and last until the expiry 10 days later of an ultimatum he gave the government (AFP Photo/Haidar Hamdani)

Baghdad (AFP) - The Iraqi cabinet has decided not to authorise a protest camp by followers of cleric Moqtada Sadr which had been due to begin Friday in front of the fortified "Green Zone".

Tens of thousands of Sadr supporters have been preparing for a days-long sit-in in central Baghdad aimed at pressuring the government to implement deeper political reform.

"Staging a sit-in is not permitted by law, especially in the current security circumstances, notably the threat by terrorist groups and the potential for this gathering to be targeted," a cabinet statement said Wednesday.
"The security forces are busy with the fight against Daesh (Islamic State group) and it is not possible to guarantee the protection of this gathering at all times," it said.

The cabinet stressed that it "supports the demonstrations demanding government reforms" and has protected one-day protests by the Sadr movement in recent weeks.

The Najaf-based Sadr had urged his supporters on March 12 to prepare tents for a protest camp supposed to begin on Friday and last until the expiry 10 days later of an ultimatum he gave the government.

A month ago, the Shiite cleric gave Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi 45 days to present the names of technocrats for a new government.

Sadrists have held a series of massive rallies in central Baghdad, with thousands turning out last week for the latest protest to press their demands.

The presence a week earlier of armed Sadr supporters outside the Green Zone -- where Abadi's office, parliament and the US embassy are located -- sparked intense security concerns.

In the protest that he attended in Baghdad three week ago, Sadr threatened that his supporters could storm the Green Zone if their demands were not met.

Mnt Goat Friday Update - “We Demand Reforms, Reforms, Reforms!” Part 2 of 2

I find the next article is very interesting because it is telling us once again (and now from Kurdistan) that the pressure is building not only for cabinet reforms, such as Abadi is now undertaking, but also to bring those high level positions responsible for the corruption to justice. We have seen dozens of articles on this subject matter recently and so it not going away as long as these high level corrupt politicians still remain without punishment.

We have also see recent Sadr campaign for the same and so this effort is building momentum to possibly dangerous levels soon. There is huge rally and camp set up for this weekend. Will protesters resort to storming the green zone? Will the protesters claim these men themselves and bring them to their own form of justice?
We all have seen the lists of these individuals so let there be no doubt in your mind who the protestors are referring to (Maliki and his goons).

I quote from the article below – “She added that he "has not been resolved Shi over the years, and there are corrupted files installed on ministers and personalities, and they are now in Iraq, and no one is moving against them."

Update: Fighting ISIS

Article Begins

By AFP Washington Thursday, 17 March 2016

An Iraqi offensive against ISIS near the town of Hit has driven some 35,000 people from their homes, a US military spokesman said Wednesday.

Taking care of their needs is “a challenge for the Iraqi government,” Colonel Steve Warren acknowledged via video conference from Baghdad.

He said the US-led coalition, along with international relief organizations, was doing what it could to alleviate conditions.
Having retaken the city of Ramadi from ISIS in December, the Iraqi military is now moving into the Euphrates River valley toward Hit, a key hub.

Last week they dropped leaflets over the area warning that elite Iraqi forces were approaching, according to Warren. He said the aim was to warn residents on how to stay safe, but also to “weaken ISIL morale.” ISIL is an alternate acronym for ISIS. The military spokesman said Iraqi forces have detained 149 ISIS fighters trying to blend in with the civilians fleeing the area.

“We believe that this enemy is on the defensive,” he said. The US State Department said Monday that more and more ISIS combatants were defecting. The United States has been fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria since the summer of 2014 at the head of a multi-national coalition.

Most importantly please, please, please let’s not forget to keep praying for the success of THESE IRAQI AND COALITION SOLDIERS. I believe our prayers are in part some of the acceleration of the process we are now witnessing.

Remember too to pray to the princess of peace – Our Blessed Virgin Mary. She has the ear of Christ and she can intercede in heaven and bring us the peace we all desire here on earth. We can not do it alone. I believe that if we all make this our daily prayer you will see change. It is already working even in the short time since I have been publishing this prayer section. It does not matter what religion you believe, if you pray then to your oven beliefs entity it is still the same powers and good for all of mankind. Ultimately it is all the same God anyhow.

“Lord, protect Abadi and all who stand with him in righteousness, the Iraq and coalition soldiers who are fighting the good fight against terrorism, that they would be shielded from the enemy and would be victorious against them in the battle for Mosul! We ask that the victory comes swiftly and healing of the Iraqi peoples and all whom have been effected by these evil doers can begin!

We pray for the process of the currency reform, the full implementation of the Iraqi economy to full international status and the bringing of prosperity and wealth to its people“ Amen!

Till next time…. Auf Wiedersehen!

Peace and Luv To Ya All,
