MilitiaMan: Article: ”General about the mechanism of reform of the pay system”
We are seeing more evidence that the process is being executed. ATMS are the theme I see. Don’t forget they talk about the Foreign Currency sales down again as well.
I also see a theme in 2s. Apparently those numbers are relevant. For me lately they have been popping up everywhere.. Just like the 111s. We recently saw where Sadr didn’t go to 2 areas of the north for campaigning, Abadi may have those 2 seats.
Ramadan was put back 2 days by two major Religious bodies, the Elections are to be done within 2 days. 2 articles on ATMs? lol Interesting, but beyond the numbers, the information shows us progress and in a big way. As WS suggests, not all is what it appears.. Not necessarily a bad thing. Imo ~ MM

Iobey77: Thank you, Sir! Good to see the CBI standing with the US and against supporting terrorists! IMO, this is a good thing!
BlessedOne: Definitely helping secure Iraq’s financial borders!! Another powerful step, in the present and future democratic direction!!!
Aggiedad77: Great strength in cooperation here…..at least a cooperative effort from the looks of things…..and it shows how the CBI is not taking kindly to how some of these banks are funding questionable operations….under the watchful eye of the UST…..good work…IMO.
Boxman: really starting to put the squeeze on the Iranian ability to transfer funds…great news
MilitiaMan: Kinda Boxed em in.. lol Wait or should I say out? lol Once on the OFAC list it has lasting repercussions that are not easy to undo. We all know where Iraq was in time past and yes On the OFAC list, to be no longer.. It took time, security and stability to do that.. imo Yes a very good thing and all part of the squeeze play we see now.. imo ~ MM
