    American Studies Center: Sadr "the biggest rebel" and Barzani "agent" of the UAE! 08/21/2017 The leader of the Sadrist movement, Moqtada al-Sadr, has described the KDP as a "support" from the United Arab Emirates. A report by the Center for Strategic and Security Studies "Stratfor" that Iraq is witnessing a rise of a new spirit of nationalism as politicians began to move away from their external sponsors in the region, years after the country became a sphere of influence and conflicts between regional and international powers. He explained that internal politics in Iraq has become an international issue, and that the multiplicity of representation of interest groups in the central government in the country has complicated the building of a coalition between them, leaving room for neighboring countries to enter their competing agendas, while there seems to be a new external variable that could overturn the arena, the role of the UAE in the region . The report pointed out that many politicians are defending Iraqi and ethnic nationalism, while regional forces such as Turkey, Iran and the Council of States condemn corruption and reject the external influences to meet the demands of sectarian groups Gulf cooperation, providing financial and political support to many Iraqi parties and sometimes to their militias. As for the changing loyalties, the report confirmed that there is a continuous shift in the Shiite component in Iraq. Last month saw the loss of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, a Shiite party founded in 1982 on the same principles as the Iranian revolution, its former leader Ammar al-Hakim, After years of escalating differences with the other three party leaders. Without wasting any time, Hakim formed a new group, the National Wisdom Stream, which is part of his attempt to maintain his competitiveness before the next elections, by courting young voters and building his national credibility. "He is the heir to a powerful Shia religious family with strong influence and ties in Iraq," says the Stratfor report, adding that the new party could affect ISCI's performance in the upcoming elections . "The ISCI is not the only Shiite party that The rival Dawa party is also witnessing an internal conflict that could threaten its results in a general election in 2018. Former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has been leading the party's most powerful wing since 2006, but his pro-Iranian and anti-US stance has divided the party. According to the report of the American Center, the current Prime Minister Haider Abadi, was thinking of the dissolution of the "call" to form the so-called "Liberation and Construction", in 2009, despite Abadi denied rumors of the establishment of a new party, the competition is supposed to join the list of state Law, a coalition formed by Maliki with him and Maliki will increase with the approach of the 2018 elections. The report pointed out that al-Maliki can not lose the membership of Abadi in the Dawa Party, because in the event of candidacy alone in the upcoming elections, the split would be a clear attempt to distance himself from Maliki and the influence of Iran that he represents. The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, was described as the "greatest rebel" because he took stronger steps. The man who founded the Mahdi Army, a Shiite militia, demanded boldly, recently, to dissolve the popular crowd, close to the Guard, which was famous for its battles during the US invasion and its involvement in sectarian conflicts In the Iranian revolution, in addition to his visit to Iran's first crime in the Saudi region. "Iran is displeased that some Iraqi Shiite politicians have openly publicly disowned Tehran, even though they are their regional patron, because their status as independent forces away from their tutelage will make them win the votes of Iraqi voters," Foreign Affairs magazine reported. "Partnerships within the Shiite camp are beginning to emerge increasingly as parties try to attract as many voters as possible before the elections. Sadr recently announced an agreement between his party and the National List Coalition led by former Prime Minister Iyad Allawi. Other leaders, such as Hakim, Maliki and Abadi, have proposed Sunni and Kurdish parties in the hope of building deeper ties. Sadr has shown keen interest in the recent Sunni voter base by accepting invitations to visit the crown prince of Saudi Arabia and the crown prince of Abu Dhabi. Sunni Arab parties are trying to join their Shiite counterparts to this end. A group of those with a larger electoral base and Sunni parties unveiled the Iraqi National Alliance in July, which includes 300 Sunni figures, including deputies and tribal leaders from the provinces controlled by the organization. Led by Salim al-Jubouri, a prominent Sunni leader and speaker of the House of Representatives. Each of the bloc's constituent parties enjoys strong local support and receives foreign aid, to some degree, from Sunni forces in the Middle East, such as Turkey and the Gulf states. As for the role of the UAE in Iraq, the report revealed that Abu Dhabi has recently increased its financial and political support to the Kurdistan Democratic Party, the ruling party in the Kurdistan region and the main supporter of the referendum as well. The UAE threw its weight in the referendum scheduled for September 25, 2017 as a slap aimed at Iran and Turkey Strongly oppose the establishment of an independent Kurdish state. At the end of his report, the American Center said, "Will the elections be held?" He explained that with Iraqis ready for the fourth legislative elections since 2003, the security situation remains unstable in their country, although it has improved greatly. , Mostly Sunni lands, are not sufficiently stable to make the necessary preparations for the vote. The lingering security concerns are the main reason for the holding of regional and parliamentary elections at the same time. The report concluded that lawmakers in the House of Representatives still need to put a new electoral law before the vote, and then the Commission will need about six months to finalize the plans for voting, while at the same time Maliki, and the slaves and wise as they compete for a position of President will continue Efforts to build the coalition, and the real power struggle between the ministers will begin the main political position in Iraq for their chosen candidate. http://www.skypressiq.net/2017/8/21/%D9%85%D8%B1%D9%83%D8%B2-%D8%AF%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%B3%D8%A7%D8%AA-%D8%A7%D9%85%D9%8A%D8%B1%D9%83%D9%8A-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B5%D8%AF%D8%B1-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D8%AA%D9%85%D8%B1%D8%AF-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A3%D9%83%D8%A8%D8%B1-%D9%88%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A8%D8%A7%D8%B1%D8%B2%D8%A7%D9%86%D9%8A-%D8%B9%D9%85%D9%8A%D9%84-%D9%84%D9%84%D8%A5%D9%85%D8%A7%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%AA

    Financial Strengthening of Iraq: Vision for the years 2018-2020 21/8/2017 Crude oil imports dominate the order and movement of three major balances in the national economy: the current account of the balance of payments (the so-called balance of payments balance, which accounts for 98 percent of total foreign exchange flows). As well as the federal budget as the oil revenues represent at least 92 percent of the total annual revenue of the public budget. The final balance is the contribution of the oil sector to the GDP components, which range from 46 to 50 percent of the composition of that output. While the non-oil revenues in the general budget estimates for the year 2017 amounted to 8 trillion dinars, of which (5.7 trillion dinars is the tax revenue, including: (4) trillions dinars direct taxes on property income and (1.7) trillion dinars taxes Such as customs and others.) * If we exclude the oil resource from the three scales mentioned above, the country will go to a tripartite deficit complex difficult to dismantle in the short term because of the lack of diversity in the sources of national income. Consequently, modern public finance of producer and exporter countries has created a benchmark for measuring the actual deficit inherent in the financial structure of highly leveraged economies called non-oil primary balance- NOPB, ie the non-oil balance that expresses the amount * Note that other non-oil revenues did not exceed 2.4 trillion dinars represent capital revenues (on the sale of state property, such as land and real estate) and conversion income (such as mobile phone license fees and exchange rate differences and recoveries and others). The total tax revenues are not more than 2 percent of GDP according to the statistics of 2016 and the income and property tax (direct taxes) is half the percentage. In sum, total non-oil revenues in all cases did not exceed 5 percent of GDP, which is close to 8 percent of total actual budget revenues. (Negative) if all public expenditures were subtracted from non-oil revenues (expenditures incurred on the oil sector should be deducted from total expenditure as well as debt services because they relate to the obligations of previous financial years). Thus, the non-oil main balance in 2017 will be about (72) trillion dinars. The deficit or negative sign is a sign that non-oil revenues account for only 5 percent of the country's gross domestic product, while oil revenues account for 46 to 5 percent of Iraq's GDP. This has made the oil revenues increase by 9-10 times the non-oil revenues in the general budget, which means that the country is dependent on its public expenditure on oil revenues. The lack of non-oil resources in the composition of the budget has become a serious financial threat because of the construction of the federal budget on the constants of spending is difficult to dismantle, especially salaries, wages and pensions and salaries of workers in state-owned enterprises (the unemployed ). As all salaries, wages and pensions are accounted for 50 percent of the total expenditure ceiling of the country's budget, which is covered by oil revenues exclusively or through internal and external borrowing, especially during the years of the previous oil recession . Therefore, there is no choice for Iraq's fiscal policy, but one option is to enhance financial resources in the short and medium term and to diversify the economy and national income through long-term development programs (Iraq 2030). Therefore, the need to maximize the resources of the general non-oil budget needs to be aware of the following economic factors: First: - Iraq is one of the high countries in government spending relative to gross domestic product by about 46 percent, which requires reducing this ratio in favor of the market economy and the role of the private sector in economic activity and the formation of aggregate demand. Second: The country's financial indicators still show Iraq's dependence on oil revenues or expansion to cover public expenditure, which is unsecured resource, which requires a radical new financial reform in the composition of public revenues. Third: - The opportunity to address unnecessary government expenses and expenses from support and extension to non-eligible and ended with the tax evasion equipment accumulated income and wealth far from the scope of public finances and social and economic goals. Fourth: The burdens of the war on terrorism and the reconstruction of the regions of Iraq and the development of all areas of Iraq require a financial program is hardened and not intended to serve the direction of financial resources towards stability and development and address the manifestations of waste. 2 - Features fiscal consolidation in Iraq 2018 - 2020 Fiscal consolidation that in front of fiscal policy for Iraq today to look for opportunities binoculars resources of non - oil that make the principal balance is Alnafty- scale NOPD objective of strengthening the financial adjustments required to control overhead and control and to maximize the revenue of non - oil level The following should be noted: a. In order to maintain the non-oil main balance ( NOPD) in the short term (at the level of one fiscal year) and then to take the decline in the medium term, Fiscal consolidation Which represents the set of policies adopted by the state at the national level or at the level of provinces and regions in order to seek to reduce the fiscal deficit and the accumulation of public debt balance. In other words, work to reduce the deficit or reduce the increase in debt through restructuring expenses and reduce as much as possible and maximize non-oil revenues. Which is to make the non-oil main NOPD decline at a steady rate over the next three years from the current status of (- 72) trillion dinars 2017 to - (42) trillion dinars in 2020, assuming that the ceiling is stable at about (100 - 107) . And that the rate of change in the main non-oil balance in the direction of reduction or reduction should be about 70 percent. Which means that non-oil revenues will be significantly improved, including taxes, fees, and various transformational capital revenues during the years 2018-2020. B - Method of adaptation or financial reinforcement 2018-2020 There are practical steps to be adopted starting from the financial year 2018 and as follows: First: the establishment of an account on behalf of the Public Debt Compensation Fund, to deposit any increase resulting from the improvement of oil prices above the target rate in the federal budget Is used to make up for any internal or external debts planned during the fiscal year or extinguish previous debts depending on the situation to be committed to the current prices estimated in the supplementary budget for 2017 of 44.4 dollars per barrel of oil exported during the period 2018-2020. Public Debt Revenue Capitalism from the sale of land and real estate and state revenue and manufacturing promise from aspects of the financing of the fund account above. Second: The adoption and expansion of outsourcing system at the level of customs outsourcing Through contracting with international companies in order to ensure the efficiency of inspection and collection and customs clearance, which maximizes the sovereign resources of the state. Lead to lower import costs and eliminate systemic and other corruption as well as maximizing public resources. Third: The outsourcing system 's reliance on the tax system for units of small taxpayers Outsourcing by granting licenses to companies civil outstandingly to open the collection of a tax that ports depends broken tax system Flat Rate for small taxpayers to ensure the achievement and raise its efficiency and stay away from diligence and corruption, I do not mind the outsourcing outlets civil to assume collection For various other collections such as fees, municipal fees and others. Fourth: Expansion of the system of partnership with the private sector in the distribution of electric power to be the year 2018 Finance is the starting point to cover all regions of the country. And included in the provisions of the Budget Act of 2018. Fifth: Legislation the sales tax law by calculating the tax on the final value of the service, and to take the decisions and financial regulations gradual in order to avoid the complexity of the tax system for sales tax. For example, food, building materials, etc. are exempted in the first stage. Sixth: Improve the management of collection of fees (non-sovereign) and wages approved in accordance with Article 24 of the Federal Budget Law for the year 2017, on the establishment of a clear and transparent accounting system shows the movements of income and expenditure and disbursements at all spending units and provide the Ministry of Finance movement and calculation of the account monthly. Seventh: To develop the fuel subsidy system and limit it to poor consumption classes through social welfare programs. The state-owned and fuel-producing state companies will maintain a cost accounting system that will demonstrate the actual costs of production and avoid the "free ride" aspects of unrealistic profit collection due to the unrealistic pricing of refined crude oil and marketed internally. http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=142993

    Good solar eclipse morning to all. Harry, that is fantastic, God filled news about your wife!!!! Prayers answered . For all those that will be able to see the eclipse, either in totality or partial, remember to protect your eyes! We don't have the special glasses so we are using our welding helmet. But we still are only going to look for a couple seconds at a time. We are to see about 98%. You can also put a pinhole in the side of a box and a sheet of white paper on the opposite side, inside of course, for the spot to shine on. We had the flaps open and taped together to make the box deeper. Did this back in the day when in school, many years ago lol. It does work. Great experiment for kids with adult supervision to make sure the kids don't look directly at the sun. Have a great day!
