THE BIG CALL WITH BRUCE TUESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2017, INTEL ONLY
TRANSCRIBED BY PINKROSES
Bruce: Welcome Everybody to the Big Call tonight. I was debating not even doing a call tonight. I talked to the team about it and thought we would be better to do the call and talk a little about some things than have a bunch of people email us what happened to the call tonight.
We did the call tonight as a preventative measure. Tonight we are pretty much at the end of the ride. That is the case and now I will tell you what I am hearing now.
Bruce: First of all I want to thank everybody for coming in and listening to the Big Call so faithfully these over the last 6 years. I am excited because I really didn’t think I would do a call tonight. I knew we had approx 25,000 people listening either live to the call or to the replay, and reading the transcript.

chattels: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 Kirkuk Aftermath: PM Abadi And PUK Winners, KDP Losers, KRG Done For? http://musingsoniraq.blogspot.com/2017/10/kirkuk-aftermath-pm-abadi-and-puk.html
chattels: Prime Minister Haidar Abadi’s move in Kirkuk went from a possible disaster to an unmitigated success. After fighting broke out in the morning of October 16 the Kurds withdrew and the Iraqi forces took all the positions they wanted plus Kirkuk city and areas of northeast Diyala.
This was the result of a deal with the major wing of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), which has left the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and President Massoud Barzani hanging high and dry, and threatens the future of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).
3fierysword16: I am also happy with the announcement that recently came directly from Alak about restrictions being removed in the 10/16/17 thread, but knowing that
“history is the shadow that we live in today,”
(we all know Alak's history)
What Alak says, and What Alak means, and When Alak does what he means (CBI) could means
three different things in
three different time zones.
It all depends what "he' wants it to mean to the audience that he speaking too

For, very good reason/s .... If, events continue as they have... we will, hear... much more from the CBI Gov... shortly
