On June 25th, I posted of the Kurds intention to start to communicate to the world (media, countries, MNC's, etc) as an "independent minded" entity as they had started in motion their sovereign nation plans. And...by recent articles-they have done exactly that. Also in that post I unveiled the Kurdish plans of bringing out their own currency (as I stated then as early as 2015). Today the Kurds published the images and details of that "possible" currency.
I can tell you with certainty through my source that the Kurds are NOT bluffing and behind the scenes are receiving strong support of their intentions from neighbor Turkey, EU countries and the US is quietly endorsing the go ahead since they (The US) feels having a predictable stable & reliable Kurdistan is in everyone's best interests. As Barzani already acknowledged the other day in his interview with the BBC; the Kurds already believe they know partitioning is "imminent" and already happening....and I can tell you with confidence that this time, and in this case, it is highly possible and probable.
