Keywords and added, that "this investigation comes to transparency and community control."
BGG: Politically - I think Alak is about to start playing ball.
firefly_: importance in achieving transparency
BGG: I have said - for a long time, the question has always been, will he play ball - or be removed.
comments like this, from him show his mindset...
_firefly_:He may very well be, but this article is talking about loans and TRANSPARENCY !!!!!!
BGG: I still don't think he's competent as a CBI Gov - but Abadi may leave him in place if he "plays ball"...
BGG: and I agree - this is exactly what I'm pointing out - he's at least starting the right direction.
BGG: likely -
BGG he's seen what's on the menu...
BGG: (his name - in the fine print...)
_firefly_: I like the Transparency quote
BGG: I do to...
_firefly_: Huge !!!!!
_firefly_: A certain agency in Basel comes to mind !
BGG: exactly - HUGE ( I know there are some that complain about the "HUGE" reference - I apologize ahead of time for not being able to please everyone
BGG: notably (if the pic is accurate) Hakim, Jaafari and Abadi ARE there...
BGG: Coupled with this sqwauk out of the NA...
BGG: Nouri: America is pressing to pass a law of the National Guard in order to divide the country
BGG: Garbage - pure sectarian garbage... they are trying to keep the country stirred up against itself so they maintain some "personal control"... this is about the Shia Militias.
BGG: along with this news...
_firefly_ says to BGG: EXACTLY !!!!!
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: National Guard diminishes Maliki's/Iranian power and influence so not surprised with M's comments
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: yep
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: Exactly... however,
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: a report as of today...
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: "...hostages were taken in Shia area of Baghdad; Iraq army subsequently clashed with Shia militia..."\
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: Nice I saw that...hadn't suck in til now
BGG: Which means - Abadi has MAJOR support we are (as yet) unaware of...
_firefly_ says to BGG : Nice catch
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: right
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: (handshake)
BGG: if the Regular Army has directly engaged the Shia Militias around Baghdad - something is UP!!
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: indeed
diane1: Something great I hope is up
BGG: the militias have been in charge of security around Baghdad - now they allowed - or were in on hostage taking and the IRA engaged them. This would be impossible without the full support of Sistani.
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: takes me back to the news of our marines being sent over to fortify the green zone a few months back
_firefly_ says to BGG: 09/11/2015 16:05 GMT - Starting demonstrations Tahrir Square in Baghdad to demand the reform of the judiciary
BGG says to _firefly_: SWEET!!
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: and lawd knows what else we got going on over there
BGG says to _firefly_: (see - no HUGE!! )
_firefly_ says to BGG: Follow-up - and babysit - launched a demonstration in Tahrir Square in central Baghdad, on Friday, with the participation of thousands of citizens and activists to demand accountability of corrupt officials in the state and reform of the judiciary, while security forces imposed strict measures in anticipation of any security breach.
Said Alsumaria News correspondent in Baghdad, said that thousands of citizens and activists staged, this afternoon, a demonstration in Tahrir Square, the center of the capital, to demand reform of the judicial system, pointing out that the demonstrators have expressed dissatisfaction with the reform measures to the Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and demanded the implementation of more
scottiegirl: I'll say it
BGG says to _firefly_: Legit demonstrations in favor of judicial reform is a good thing.
_firefly_ says to BGG: He added that the demonstrators denounced the Liberation bad the reality of services, and called for the prosecution of corrupt officials and not to give them a chance to escape out of the country. "He said that the security forces imposed strict measures on the place of the demonstration and nearby areas in anticipation of any breaches, while developed more of a security belt for inspection. M.a
BGG says to _firefly_: they will have some new laws passed, but without enforcement it means little...
_firefly_ says to BGG: and not to give them a chance to escape out of the country. "
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: and coupled with Sadr/Sistani military I can speculate
BGG says to _firefly_: Maliki may have flown the coup already.
BGG says to _firefly_: too late...
_firefly_ says to BGG: Can we say together .... Domino Effect !!!!!
BGG says to _firefly_: I was thinking earlier - I highly doubt Maliki ever sees a trial. He knows one is coming, but he'll go ahead of that reality...
GrannieAnnie: Domino Effect !!
mimi3: Can say together yet......RV?
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: Maliki could be working up on a Scarface moment yea
_firefly_ says to BGG: Do you think they are done with him?
diagyAAAE: lol cant
BGG: in his mind, he can still attempt to exert influence from outside Iraq (as long as he's not in jail and some kind of "Shia ruler/martyr")
mimi3: say hello to my "little Friend"
BGG: nahhh - he's too cunning for that.
diane1 says to CanTWaitwoRV: maybe but scarface better becareful of Sammy the bull
CanTWaitwoRV says to diane1: yea or sammy the drone
_firefly_ says to BGG: He may be but his son and cousin ..............
BGG: they are dumb - they will both get caught.
scottiegirl: Even if he leaves Iraq, the ICC will eventually catch up with him, yes?
_firefly_ says to BGG: And Maliki KNOWS that !!!!!!!!
maine: they would go after his family i think
scottiegirl: Those charges are not null and void
BGG: Not sure - IMHO, I just doubt he ever sees an Iraqi trial.
BGG: he won't stay.
Pablo: Someone would have to catch him.
quicktolegit96: BGG U ARE EXACTLY RT
scottiegirl: Just hate to see him get away with what he's done, but on the other hand........
_firefly_ says to BGG: IMO ... If they wanted him, it would already have been done !
quicktolegit96: ARE THEIR ONLY 3 SETS OF REFORMS WITH THE 3RD ONE ALREADY BEING ACTIVATED?
_firefly_ says to BGG: Abadi has the power
BGG says to _firefly_: I don't know if I agree - I think he is gaining support daily.
CanTWaitwoRV: wouldn't be surprised Iran gradually take it's Risk game board pieces outta Iraq to Syria and regroup if what we're reading regarding Abadi now has a military stronghold and winning
BGG says to _firefly_: and he is using it immediately.
CanTWaitwoRV: which would be a big deal of course
_firefly_ says to BGG: IMO the cat and mouse game is nearing completion
BGG says to quicktolegit96: as I understand it there are two outlined.
CanTWaitwoRV: gradually..more like asap
diane1: ABADI is a smart man and has good intentions for his country and it's people
diane1: good always prevails evil.
BGG says to quicktolegit96: and a third on the way - but more than likely there will be MUCHO CHANGES coming... not 1 or 2 or 3...
quicktolegit96: 10.4 TY
_firefly_ says to BGG:
When I say Abadi, I am talking plural
BGG says to quicktolegit96: none of which has been fully accomplished... hence the demonstrations even today. They want more action... as do we.
CanTWaitwoRV says to diane1: true cuz in the game of Risk no man wins
quicktolegit96: PRESSURE LUV IT
CanTWaitwoRV says to diane1: in the end anyways
quicktolegit96: DEMOS COULD HAVE BEEN NAIL IN COFFIN LOL
BGG says to quicktolegit96: they were - without a doubt, the catalyst for Sistani and others throwing their support fully behind Abadi and further chiseling away at the pillars of Maliki's power bases.
BGG says to quicktolegit96: these recent actions have really started the change in "status quo"...
_firefly_ says to BGG: BINGO !
quicktolegit96: YES THEY HAVE, TY SISTANI AND SADR
jackflash101st: tell me wy cant they seem to get rid of this madhat judge??
jackflash101st: seems to be draging on a bit...
CanTWaitwoRV: Sistani's representative calls for a re-evaluation of the performance of officials and the replacement of proven incompetence
Fri Sep 11 2015 15:31 | (Voice of Iraq) - Karbala
BGG says to jackflash101st: technicalities... they will - IMHO, get rid of him. He's not even legal to be there (still)... he's too old. The bigger question, how do they replace the RETARDS who reportedly voted (on the SJC Council) to retain him...
BGG says to jackflash101st: that is the question.
jackflash101st: Thank you.Great answer
diane1 says to BGG: They make the retards a offer than can not refuse.
quicktolegit96: THOSE RETARDS MAY BE PART OF THE CORRUPTION
BGG says to jackflash101st: and the answer is relatively simple... Hadair "What's his face" - the big Maliki opponent and others from lower courts get promoted.
BGG says to jackflash101st: forgive me - I forget his name... I remember his face.
CanTWaitwoRV says to quicktolegit96: oh I'd say 100% imo
CanTWaitwoRV says to quicktolegit96: like a boss
mimi3: 19 days till october 1 what do you think BGG? never thought it would go this long.......

BGG says to _firefly: both interesting article - and thanks for that.
BGG says to _firefly_: some changes he seems to be handling himself - others he's delegating...

And that "will be selected through efficiency, integrity and work experience to manage those positions that have been changed."
BGG says to _firefly_: So - by all appearances, they are going with "technocrats" and not sectarian quotas.
_firefly_ says to BGG: The Tedo parliamentary finance committee last month, that the Commission Majaburh to introduce strict procedures for all the budgets of state institutions in the budget of 2016.
_firefly_ says to BGG: Love it !!!!!
BGG says to _firefly_: people who can do the job instead of someone who holds a union card from the right party.
BGG says to _firefly_: big step in the right direction.
_firefly_ says to BGG: Great Analogy !
_firefly_ says to BGG: Yeah no news today lol
BGG says to _firefly_: that is Abadi's point - they need these jobs getting done - instead of these ministries getting STRIPPED of resource by crooked, bloated, sectarian thieves...
BGG says to _firefly_: Abadi is gearing all of this around better service to the people.
_firefly_ says to BGG: He dismissed 123 politicians a day ago !
BGG says to _firefly_: My biggest concern - at this point,
BGG says to _firefly_: I hope he doesn't get assassinated...
BGG says to _firefly_: he may be the most prime candidate for it IN THE WORLD, right now...
_firefly_ says to BGG: I think he is well surrounded
jackflash101st: not to change the subject whats the latest news on ISIS

jackflash101st: Exactly my point..
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: OK - so riddle me this...
CanTWaitwoRV says to BGG: slipping thru the cracks
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: if they were "just going to do this" (50k note thingy) as reported?!?
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: why the need to meet and discuss it further??
CanTWaitwoRV: exactly and why talk about so much

quicktolegit96: CONFUSION PERHAPS
CanTWaitwoRV: somethin lies underneath the surface of it all for sure
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: if that were the case... why this meeting to "raise issues related to it..."?? Hmmmmmmm
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: exactly what I've been pointing out - there are two sides to this argument and they are still "talking"...
CanTWaitwoRV: never seen a country talk about it's currency so much that's for sure
CanTWaitwoRV: no other country out there doing it this much I know of
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: with Maliki a no-show at the meeting with the Shia "heavy-weights" I'll give you one guess as to which side I'm thinking will win??
CanTWaitwoRV: yea good point!
mimi3: the good side!
BGG says to CanTWaitwoRV: Hint - the other side
CanTWaitwoRV: 50k in purchasing power of a 50 note werks
jackflash101st: Maybe hes back in Iran
mimi3: which is the good side right?
BGG says to mimi3: yes.
mimi3: yeah for the good side!!
dale: The assasination thought has been going through the back of my mind also since Abadi is going after these bad characters money .... do you think that the CIA or say the International court have any people help watching Abadi?
