chattels: US helping clear 'historic' amount of explosives in Mosul
chattels: The coalition’s unexploded bombs are only a small part of Mosul’s problems. The bulk of the explosives have been hidden by IS fighters to be triggered by the slightest movement, even picking up a seemingly innocent children’s toy, lifting a vacuum cleaner, or opening an oven door.
The effort could continue wreaking destruction on Iraq’s second largest city even as IS was defeated after a nine-month battle. U.S. Embassy officials and contractors hired to root out the hidden explosives use the same words to describe the devastation in western Mosul: Historic. Unprecedented. Exponentially worse than any other place.
What Are the Differences Between the Rich and the Poor?
By J.D. Roth
Long ago, when this site was young, I reviewed Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker. Eker believes that we each possess a “financial blueprint”, an internal script that dictates how we relate to money.
Our blueprints are created through lifelong exposure to money messages from the people around us. Unfortunately, Eker says, most of us have faulty blueprints that prevent us from building wealth.
BARZANI'S REFERENDUM & THE RV
It's difficult to see through hype. This referendum on its face is a non-starter:
Turkey has directly stated that they will not support an independent Kurdistan. All Turkey has to do is shut down the pipeline. That's it, game over for Kurdistan. There's no way Turkey will allow an independent Kurdistan, and their president will act.
Iran has directly said that they do not support an independent Kurdistan. Iran's militias are staying in Iraq, and they, combined with Iraq's troops could easily blockade an independent Kurdistan. Iran and Iraq could capture and hold Kirkuk oil fields and pump out the oil East into Iran. Kurdistan would run out of money within a very short time with Kirkuk's oil.
Sadre has said he is not for an independent Kurdistan along with Iran's Shiite leader. Kurdistan would loose support from within their borders from their Shiite population. Even in Kurdistan the religious leaders still hold power.

Daz: ITS EASY TO BELIEVE IN JUST THE FACTS
I SUSPECT MUCH OF THE STUFF WE HAVE HEARD FROM ALL OVER THE NET OVER THE YEARS CONTAINS AN ELEMENT OF TRUTH..SOME MORE THAN OTHERS OF COURSE.
I DETERMINED LONG AGO THAT THERE HAVE BEEN VERY FEW DELAYS IN THE PROCESS. BUT THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF COURSE CORRECTIONS AND FALSE STARTS...AND THE RV WAS EVEN USED AT TIMES AS A TOOL TO PRY OPEN A FAULT OR WEAK SPOT THAT NEEDED REPAIR OR ARREST.
WITH ALL PROCESSES YOU MUST SET GOALS AND THOSE GOALS ARE MARKERS TO MEASURE PROGRESS TOWARDS A FINAL SUCCESSFUL RESOLUTION.
