Frank26:  IMO ………….. Jafa can have this UN Speech …………….. As we await a BIGGER SPEECH from A.

Walkingstick:  Agree: I believe…his speech, would falter…  in comparison, to Abadi… announcing, a fully liberated Iraq

Realstorm:  What if the Kurds somehow were able to separate from Iraq??? Could this be a break in the financial system in the Middle East? What else could break the financial system in the Middle East?  What if OPEC totally fell apart?

Kim Clement Prophecy:

July 18th, 2015 – From The Den

The Spirit of God is speaking now over the region of Iraq, over the region of Iran, over the regions of the Middle East and southern Asia. The earth has shaken and shall shake again. But God said I am speaking that I may release resources, and there will be a grave surrender that will take place in the months to come.

I want to free you, every one of you, My people, to be able to stretch out their hand to the lonely, to the hungry, to the poor, and feed them and clothe them. This is My desire, says the Lord.

Therefore, there shall be a break in the financial system in the Middle East, the dinar. And then he shall say, “Why? Why now?” And God said, when things seem at their worst, I shall bring it forth and I shall free them up.

Walkingstick:  Keep in mind, a referendum does not necessitate and or imply an immediate secession… Kurdistan is conducting what is deemed to be unilateral referendum…Meaning, it is more of an aspiration/ symbolic move that has little to no impact on a move toward secession…  Similar to the one they conducted in 05 …Knowing, without a doubt..any, move to secede … would bring a total collapse to the Kurdistan region by means of….military force, political and economic means….

RealStorm:  Thanks for the reply and all your work here! This word from Kim Clement has stuck with me along with the Dow hitting 20K. Thanks also for clearing up the referendum thing for us!
