NWMontana: Why the phone calls now I wonder…”Iraqi PM-designate received a phone call from US Secretary of State. Pompeo congratulated Allawi for his nomination for Prime Minister. #Iraq”~https://twitter.com/BaxtiyarGoran/status/1231678094399938563
NWMontana: This just came out too, calling for a big meeting tomorrow… https://www.kurdistan24.net/en/news/4eba0ca0-509d-4f42-a949-8dcd4ef0f7b7
Yada: interesting folks,,, the CBI is ready and that the rate release would precipitate the budget being approved by Parliament. Now, this morning, there were several post from articles saying that Allawi is being forced to move their meeting from Monday to Wednesday.
Of course, the speaker of the house is an Iranian sympathizer so anything to delay the inevitable they will do, but,,,,,,, and article just came out stated that the Sec of State, Pompeo, congratulated Allawi as being the new PM and the only way he can be called PM and not PM Designate would be if his cabinet was set but just not voted on by Parliament. If this is the case, while Iraq plays the political games, the rest of the world moves forward. …..moving forward in releasing the rate to precipitate the budget being voted upon,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,just my thinking out loud
