Nato to strengthen Iraq's army


Nato will help Iraq reform and strengthen its security forces which are reeling from a near collapse a year ago in the face of an offensive by Islamic State fighters, Nato said on Friday.


Iraq asked Nato for help training its security forces in December after Islamic State captured large parts of the country.


The programme will focus on seven priority areas including advice on reforming the security sector, cyber defence and military training, Nato said in a statement. 


Training will be held in Turkey and Jordan, meaning Nato will not need a new agreement with Iraq to base troops there.

Full Moon Phase: fulfillment, realization

Moon in Aquarius

Goddess of Wisdom: Dhumavati (Goddess Who Closes and Completes)

God of Will/Desire: Kathe (God of The South)

Skill: consider freedom

Catalysts for Change: distortions, confusion, insecurity, fear of exposure and vulnerability, feeling not good enough to join in, greed, failing to take good care of something, speaking without thinking, projecting one's shadow side

True Alignments: see below for explanation of today's Sabian symbols

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "a woman and two male castaways"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres"

The Moon is Full.  It's in Aquarius.  Aquarius is ruled by Uranus.  Uranus rules freedom.  Uranus is retrograde at the Eris Point.  The Eris Point rules rebirth. 

All of this equals one question today: How would you define freedom?

This is the main question for today, individually and as a collective.  The energetics of the planets support us in our attempts to free ourselves from the past and old beliefs, thoughts, and systems.

IMF Executive Board Approves US $1.24 Billion in Financial Support for Iraq

Press Release No.15/363

On July 29, 2015, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) approved SDR 891.3 million (about US$1.24 billion or 75 percent of quota) for Iraq under the Rapid Financing Instrument (RFI)1. 

The purpose of this financial assistance is to help Iraq address present and urgent balance of payment and budget needs in 2015 related to the ISIS insurgency and a decline in oil prices. 

The IMF financing will support the authorities’ current economic program, which includes fiscal adjustment measures and structural reforms.

Following the Executive Board’s discussion of Iraq, Mr. Mitsuhiro Furusawa, IMF Deputy Managing Director and Acting Chair of the Board, issued the following statement:

“The twin shocks faced by Iraq from the ISIS insurgency and the drop in global oil prices have severely widened the government deficit and caused a decline in international reserves. 

The authorities’ policies to deal with the shocks, including sizable fiscal adjustment and maintenance of the exchange rate peg, go in the right direction. Access under the IMF’s Rapid Financing Instrument will help address Iraq’s urgent balance of payments and budget needs. However, large fiscal and external financing gaps remain.

On July 30, the new BRICS bank went online and is prepared with $100 billion in seed money to protect the five emerging market countries within the coalition from future problems stemming from fluctuations created by the dollar.

BRICS nations meet at summit

The BRICS bank was created one year ago by five of the most prominent economies that have emerged since the 2008 credit crisis and the financial decline of both Europe and the United States. In fact, the creation and accelerated growth of several institutions that both mirror and compete with Western led financial systems came in part out of the dollar's global expansion because of Quantitative Easing, and use of the dollar by the U.S. as a weapon in geo-political policy.
