Good stuff happening right now - here's the brief headlines:
1. Last week there was talk about jumping straight to the 2015 budget, and this week they are DOING it. BAM!
2. What's Kurdistan's biggest gripe been over the years? What has stopped them from agreeing? MONEY. Under Maliki, Baghdad screwed the Kurds every chance they got... and what's changed now that Abadi and the new GOI is in place? Things are moving, and Kurdistan just got news they are getting paid. POW!!
3. Y'all know what the HCL holdup is, right? MONEY! The Kurds have refused to agree on anything because they were not getting a fair shake (to say the least)... well, that's changing quickly and we are actually seeing the word "agreement" instead of "talks" or "negotiations". ZING!!!
