Mnt Goat (Dinar Guru) –   Okay so once the prime minister is elected, they will have until mid Oct to get the reinstatement done. If they decide not to do it we may as well relax because we are waiting until EARLY 2019. I am telling you this now because I have knowledge of target dates already to get this done. I have a direct source in the CBI and we completed a recent long conversation over this issue of timing for the reinstatement. Again they reinforced to me that when we see the re-education process begin about the new smaller categories, this will be our signal they are going forward. If we don’t see it then we are in the window of 2019.

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) – The CBI is reprinting some denomination including the 250, 500, 1000 dinar as many are worn out from years of neglect.  Has nothing to do with RV or RI as gurus would like you to think. Why won’t the CBI RV or RI  the Iraqi dinar?  The primary reason is the CBI needs a tool to counter inflationary pressure created by a large influx of investment capital.  As already announced by the CBI the dinar will be globally traded.  It must float. The world sets a countries currency value. Supply and demand.

Another reason is the CBI wants to end the daily currency auctions.  To do so, they must have an alternative to generate revenue.  The CBI profits from the buying/selling of currency. And lastly because the IMF said so.  Despite what the gurus say the IMF made it very clear…”staff encourages the authorities to create the conditions which would make possible a move to a more flexible…exchange rate policy. Such flexibility could allow a predictable and gradual appreciation of the nominal exchange rate, triggered by strong oil revenues and the Balassa-Samuelson effect”…The IMF is clearly talking about a float

How Iran Can Protect Its Influence in Iraq

Tehran is willing and able to strike deeper into Iraqi territory than ever before.

Geopolitical Futures logoThe degree of influence Iran has in Iraq is always a source of consternation and debate. Why Tehran would want to influence events there, and how it elects to do so, are much less debatable.

Iraq is a major security concern for Iran – more so even than Syria. The Zagros Mountains insulate Iran from direct invasion, but they can’t prevent smaller bands of insurgents from staging attacks from the west, say, from Iraq. Iran therefore has an interest in controlling, to as great a degree as possible, the political and security environment in Iraq. However, the sheer diversity of interests in Iraqi politics makes it difficult for Iran to completely control the establishment through formal means. It has supplemented its quest for official political power with the presence of large militia groups that answer to Iran, not Iraq. And it uses state organs to fund them.

Iran appears to be gaining traction in that regard. After months of delay, the parliament finally elected a speaker, an important step toward forming a government after hotly contested elections in May. The speaker, Mohammed al-Halbousi, was backed by the Fatah Alliance, a political organization led by former pro-Iran militia member Hadi al-Amiri. The next step in forming a government will be electing a president and prime minister. Former Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi – considered a compromise candidate who has shown a willingness to work with both Iran and the U.S. – had until recently been considered a favorite to reclaim his post. That changed because of how poorly the government handled the Basra protests. Its performance was so bad that Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, an Iraqi Shiite cleric whose opinion rings out in Iraq’s political system, said he would not support anyone who held office during the protests.

Yet, those protests attest to the limits of Iranian power in Iraq, even in Shiite-dominated areas. Demonstrators chanted anti-Iran slogans and even lit the Iranian Consulate on fire. Several offices of pro-Iran militias, including the Badr Organization, Asaib Ahl al-Haq and Kataib Hezbollah, were attacked and lit on fire. The Basra protests, then, were at least partly a protest against the status quo.

Also obstructing Iran’s influence in Iraq is the United States. On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate plans to introduce a bill that would impose sanctions on Asaib Ahl al-Haq and Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba, two of the many pro-Iran militias operating in Iraq. The bill would also require the State Department to publish a list of groups that receive funding or are controlled, to whatever degree, by Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Washington means to delegitimize Iran’s Iraqi proxies by labeling them as terrorist organizations, which it hopes will, in turn, prevent Iraq from incorporating them into the formal armed services.

Then there are Kurds, which, as outlawed groups, are challenging Iran from their strongholds in northern Iraq. Over the past few months, there has been an uptick in attacks against Iranian state forces by Iranian Kurdish forces. Iran has petitioned the Kurdistan Regional Government to control these groups, but the KRG is either unable to unwilling to do so. Add to this the reasonable inference that the U.S. is supporting Iranian Kurdish groups – it selectively supports other Kurdish factions as the situation warrants – and Iran finds itself facing a much more substantial threat from the north than it has in recent years.

This explains why Iran reportedly provided ballistic missiles to its Shiite militias in Iraq. Soon thereafter, in late August, the IRGC conducted a ballistic missile strike against Iranian Kurdish positions in northern Iraq, killing 15. (Following the attack, Kurdish sources claimed that Iran was beginning a buildup of forces on its border with Iraq.) Iran has shelled Kurdish positions in Iraq before, but this is the first time it used precision-guided missiles. It is therefore a clear signal to the entire region: To defend its interests, Tehran is willing and able to strike deeper into Iraqi territory, without the use of its hallmark proxies, than ever before.

Not long after the strike, the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan called on other Iranian Kurdish groups to form a united front against Iran. If they do, they will only invite more reprisals. And if the KRG cannot prevent attacks against Iran from Iraqi bases – given signs of U.S. involvement, it seems unlikely – an Iranian invasion of northern Iraq can’t be ruled out. After all, with Iraqi loyalty to Iran coming into question, extra guns in Iraq would help secure the Iranian border.
