UU9933 - “ What Lays Ahead In the Coming Weeks” by Mnt Goat
I come to you today to give you an update on the progress of the new government and how this relates towards the international rollout of the IQD for Iraq.
Today's news letter, as in all my news letters, is a continuation of the ongoing saga of the IQD RV process. Please refer back to my last news letter of 9/16 (LINK) and 9/26 (LINK) as this news letter is a continuation of this news.
Sorry but today’s news letter is very long. Please read it a couple times if necessary. I have tried my best to bring you what I know to be the truth and what my sources have been telling me. I try now to apply it and make the connections for you since today’s news never stands alone and is connected with past events.
Voting on the Final Ministers-
Today is Monday 9/29 and over the weekend a request went out to the speaker of the house to hold a special session prior to Wednesday to vote and to confirm the last of the few ministers. These are replacement ministers that were rejected already (some twice) on the confirmation process by parliament. Abadi is targeting this confirmation prior to the upcoming holiday of Eid al-Adha (begins in the evening of Saturday, October 4, 2014, and ends in the evening of Sunday, October 5, 2014). They still do not have a permanent Defense and Interior ministers.
Many of you still debate with me that all the ministers were seated weeks ago. That is good I like debates....lol.... Please go back and re-read my news letter dated 09/12. Apparently you are not keeping up with the news and are not following this ongoing saga carefully. Instead you listen to someone telling you only what they want you to know. You are not following mnt goat news letters but instead occasionally read one and want to debate something that was already clearly explained, in detail. For you reader I will be sympathetic and try to help you but please try to read my ongoing news letters.
What transpired on 9/7-9/8 by announcing a “fully” formed government was all very legal and intentionally done. Since, if a minister gets rejected in the confirmation process they have a process to continue the selections until a proper candidate is then confirmed. They do not halt the entire progress of the formation of the government if this happens. Maliki in 2010 used the same tactic.
They announced a fully formed government to get the UN resolution to form a legal coalition to enter Syria and fight ISIS. Iraq was at a critical point and needed support to begin operations which was very apparent. There was also a constitutional deadline and missing it was not an alternative. Missing this deadline meant starting all over.
Why the necessity to meet this deadline?
1) Maliki’s government needed to be disbanded before it could cause any more damage;
2) a new government was required to be formed prior to any UN or USA support for a international coalition to fight ISIS (time was running out);
3) prime minister designate Abadi had to be fully seated as the new prime minister and his new cabinet announced;
Tell me - Is it so far fetched that minister candidates could have then been rejected when going for confirmation and those rejected candidates simply stay in office as proxy ministers until the proper candidate is seated? They did this so everybody wins! The UN got what they needed, Maliki is no longer the prime minister (so the election process moves on) and they could move forward now with cleaning up the mess Maliki left behind. This will be a long process (maybe up to 3-6 months) A brilliant move on Abadi’s part. I talked about the possibility of this days before it happened.
They are now in this process of replacing the proxy ministers. It could take weeks or months to do this but they are able to move forward in so many other areas too, even with the proxy ministers. They are making yet another stab at it this week. Do you understand me? They needed to meet the constitutional deadline weeks ago and they found a workaround.
Sure CNN, FOX and other news media broadcasted that the government was seated (and it was) but we know what really happened. So a lesson learned in intel gathering. Sometimes you have to see the forest beyond the trees. Don’t ignore the articles, as with anything dealing with Iraq, it is very dynamic and you must be open minded and flexible to hear what is really happening. Nothing just happens! Nothing is coincidental ! I have said this many times. I hope we all now understand what is happening with these ministers. Can we now lay this to rest?
I am hearing the voting for confirmation of these ministers is once again on the agenda for early this week in parliament.
Update on Fighting ISIS
Abadi is still making great efforts to gain support from all blacks on the need to come together as a nation to fight ISIS. Believe it or not some political leaders would still rather have the USA come in and do their dirty work for them. This is not going to happen but rather USA role will primarily be supplies, advising, training, reconnaissance and air support.
The policy now of this new government is to “respect the sovereignty of Iraq and that Iraq will be the lord of the land, water, sky and focus on the unity of Iraq”, and received assurances from all the countries participating in this coalition to respect Iraq's sovereignty and said they must respect the sovereignty of the presence of Iraqi government elected represent all segments of the Iraqi people, a government of its sovereignty over its territory. Nearly the entire international community now stands with Iraq with about 40 countries having expressed their willingness to support, and the list increases each week by standing with Iraq in its war against terrorism and Daash, and by Iraq almost three months we alone in the field, and now asked nations to stand with them in this fight. They are gearing up for a long haul.
Iraq got assurances from these countries at our request and they also demanded that there will be “no ground forces foreign to the land of Iraq because Iraq will not need them at all for the existence of sufficient numbers of armed forces and popular mobilization with which to work within the umbrella of the state and therefore do not need to ground troops, but we need air cover, weapons and equipment sufficient to enable our people to defend himself, but for the world, because Iraq today is faced Daash fighter and we are in the forefront of these countries and the world praised on this role. "
So a major effort is being undertaken to establish training camps much like “boot camps” that will turn out thousands of trained soldiers in a training period. There are many of these camps in Iraq, Turkey, Jordan and Saudi. These will be the “boots on the ground” in the campaign against terrorism. These camps will be run and supervised by USA and GB advisors. They will train Iraq and Syrian soldiers.
It is my belief that untimately the coalition and the USA will have to send "formal" ground troops to fight ISIS. This is my opinion.
Update on the 27 Reforms-
In my 9/26 news letter I talked about a stack of bills, laws, and treaties that are going to be read and voted on this week. I listed the ones I knew about and their significance. These are literally right off the “Unity Government” list of the needed 27 reforms.
Many of these reforms are just replacing many of the Erbil agreement items of the 2009-2010 Erbil meeting. This was the same kind of meeting they held in 2010 like the Unity meeting in 2014. The difference is in the last election, the newly elected Maliki did not implement many of the items as promised. He had a 30 timeframe to do so. So as the years slipped by in his administration, we witnessed the government deteriorate as a result of it and nothing significant ever got done. So going to be so this time with Abadi. Like with the Erbil agreement, Abadi also has timelines to get these 27 reforms completed. The USA and the UN are not going to budge on the RV until these are completed.
Do they all have to be completed prior to an RV? The farthest out timeline for many of the items is 3 months. So we do know they intend to complete all these reforms by January 2015. Could it now be so far fetched that we might have to wait until this timeframe to see an RV? Not saying…just asking……lol….
I believe the critical issues in the Erble agreement, as a minimum, must be implemented prior to any RV. This will ensure the continuance of the petro-dollar (HCL) and the security and cooperation of the three secs within Iraq. This is what they were intended to do in the first place only now they are 4 years behind schedule due to Maliki. They are attempting to catch up fast.
