Pmac: Thoughts on a Saturday night… all IMHO of course.
What countries are the greatest threat to try and manipulate Iraq and their MR?  Iran and Turkey.
Which countries currencies are currently under squeeze play from our magnificent four?  Iran and Turkey.
Iraq’s most annoying neighbors are both in check, Syria’s issues seem to be confined to it’s borders (optically at least), and Saudi’s are ready to make money with Iraq because they are running low on oil (why else buy $300B in weapons 2017 while they’re not broke).
I’d say we (US) literally have the screws wound up and down in the right positions to help cattle prod this stubborn RI into existence.
Unfortunately, the bad “cattle” still needs to be rounded up and confined, as the words Treason and Traitor will top the headlines and SHOCK those who are tuned into their frequency.  Then, the next chapter for us begins.

Economist Bassem Jameel Antoine said on Sunday that the central bank has put in place solutions to stop the rise in the dollar exchange rate, pointing out that the central bank has stopped remittances with Iran.

“The central bank has announced its commitment to the terms of the International Monetary Fund, to stop the remittances between Iraq and Iran, which will lead the private sector to buy the dollar in larger quantities than the former market, for trade exchange between the two countries.”
