Loop (Dinar Guru) –   Article quotes:   “Since more than four years and officials in Iraq are talking about a project monetary reform in which to raise the Iraqi currency exchange rate against the dollar so that the new dinar equals 1.2 dinars to the dollar instead of 1200.” “But the move was postponed to a later date due to the exit of some Iraqi areas under government control after the occupation of «Daesh» her. Then the military operations began to recover these areas which still exist. The government is expected to return to the project itself after the end of military operations.”   “The price of the Iraqi dinar former (US $ 3.2) was exaggerated and will continue to be overrated if has to return to it in the future. It will make imports cheaper, but it hinders improvement of production and export capacity of Iraq, may be the price of 1.2 dinars to the dollar or dinar against the dollar is a good price.”  So this economist is saying that while 3.2 dollars per dinar (Old rate) would make imports much cheaper it would cause exports to be expensive.   [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]

Loop (Dinar Guru) –   His opinion is that .83333 cents to the dollar would be more managable.  [So the exchange rate would be 1/.83 = $1.20.  1 divided by .83…In USD]   This is where they feel they can defend (support) the rate based on their current economic capacity. This will increase over time has they economy grows.  Remember that this is one persons opinion. What is so very encouraging is that this really shows that the expectation is a marked increase in value, which is very positive for this investment.  Mr White made an excellent point…about them not having much to export, other than oil that is. The price of oil is fixed in the world markets and is traded in petro dollars so oil would not be effected by the increased dinar value. For the rest the GOI can always do what we do in the USA. What I am referring to is subsidizing the exports to bring the price down. This ensures that industries flourish while keeping the costs of exports low.  [post 2 of 2]

Maliki threatens to destabilize Iraq if elections postponed

Nouri al-Maliki

State of Law Coalition leader Nouri al-Maliki has threatened to destabilize Iraq and put the country in front of difficult choices if the next elections were postponed with the aim of achieving more political gains.

Post-ISIS era requires the re-arrangement of Iraq’s priorities according to a national plan that protects Iraqis rights, al-Maliki said in a press statement, pointing that a political majority is the only plan that will help Iraq get rid of quotas’ system and achieve a national consensus.

He asserted that a political majority will not be monopolized by sectarian groups, but it will be a political majority for every Iraqi who wants to participate in the government, noting that a majority government would contribute to working out a national consensus about principles based on the Iraqi constitution.

Maliki is blamed for ISIS’s control over Mosul city and its spread in other parts of Iraq when the Iraqi troops withdrew from the city after ISIS militants stormed it during massive battles to capture the city in June 2014.

He along with other senior Iraqi officials are also involved in several corruption charges and have been faced with charges of squandering trillions of dollars from the Iraqi’s funds.

Loop (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Parliamentary oil suggest the presence of 300 billion barrels of undiscovered”  Quote:  “...said the oil profanity by Mehdi al-Hafez, Tuesday, that there is a plan of action will begin to explore more than 300 billion barrels of oil, Iraq added to the reserve.”  If Hafiz is correct Iraq will have the largest reserves in the world.  What we do know for sure is that they just add 10 billion to their reserves last week.  Iraq is currently 5th in the world as far as oil reserves go. Much of their country has yet to be explored for oil. I would be surprised if they do not find much more.

Pentagon ditches onerous rules of engagement, gives Mosul troops quicker firepower access

By Douglas Ernst – The Washington Times – Iraqi forces and U.S. coalition troops are no longer burdened by strict rules of engagement, which some say have turned firepower requests into bureaucratic nightmares.

U.S. Army Lt. Col. James Browning, commander of 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, recently spoke with reporters about a Dec. 26 directive that streamlined the process of delivering aid. The order, attributed to U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, was confirmed on Thursday by Air Force Col. John Dorrian, the U.S.-led coalition’s spokesman.

“It changed the relationship [between forces],” Lt. Col. Browning told The Associated Press about increased flexibility on the battlefield. “It gives me a better understanding of how I can bring to bear the limited capabilities I have.”

The new rules, which were supplemented with more directives weeks ago, allow U.S. personnel to better assist — physically and logistically — the Iraqi army’s 9th Division. Advisers are increasingly embedded with Iraqis and they can avoid cumbersome requests through a joint command center.
“[We previously] would have gone through a whole bureaucracy and through Baghdad,” the officer told AP by phone.

Military operations to dislodge the Islamic State group from Iraq’s second-largest city have seen a string of success in recent weeks. The eastern half of the city is under the control of coalition forces and its airport in the west was recaptured on Thursday.
