Syria crisis: UK to put forward UN resolution
The UK is to put a resolution to the UN Security Council later on Wednesday "authorising necessary measures to protect civilians" in Syria.
The resolution will be put forward at a meeting of the five permanent members of the council, UK Prime Minister David Cameron said on Twitter.
Earlier a team of UN weapons inspectors resumed work investigating an suspected chemical weapons attack on 21 August.
The UN secretary general said they needed four days to end their probe.
Ban Ki-moon added that they would need more time after this to analyse their findings.
He also called on the council to act together.
"The body interested with maintaining international peace and security cannot be ‘missing in action’," Mr Ban said.
"The council must at last find the unity to act. It must use its authority for peace," he went on.
Mr Cameron said in another message: "We’ve always said we want the UN Security Council to live up to its responsibilities on Syria."
"Today they have an opportunity to do that," he said. The draft resolution would condemn the "chemical weapons attack by Assad", he added.
Mr Cameron will chair an emergency meeting of the UK’s National Security Council at midday local time (11:00 GMT) to discuss possible responses to the crisis.
Meanwhile, in a briefing to journalists, joint UN-Arab League envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi said: "It does seem clear that some kind of substance was used… that killed a lot of people" on 21 August.
But he emphasised that any military action needed Security Council authorisation.
Russia and China have previously vetoed resolutions critical of Syria and may block any text deemed to approve military action.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned that "attempts at a military solution will lead only to the further destabilisation" in Syria and the region.
Mr Lavrov emphasised the need for a political solution in a phone call to Mr Brahimi, the foreign ministry in Moscow said.
Russia, China and Iran have previously warned against launching an attack on the war-ravaged country, where more than 100,000 people are thought to have died in two years of fighting.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned on Wednesday that US intervention would be a "disaster" for the region.
"The region is like a gunpowder store and the future cannot be predicted," Mr Khamenei said, according to Iran’s Isna news agency.
Stocks have fallen on global markets and oil prices have shot up amid growing concern about an impending attack.
US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel told the BBC on Tuesday that the US military was ready to launch strikes should President Barack Obama order an attack.
Mr Cameron said the world could "not stand idly by", and French President Francois Hollande said France was "ready to punish" whoever was behind the attack.
Inspectors resume work
The team of inspectors resumed investigations after having called off work on Tuesday because of security concerns.
Mr Ban appealed for the team to be given "time to do its job".
He went on: "Give peace a chance. Give diplomacy a chance. Stop fighting and… start talking."
It is not clear which districts the inspectors will be visiting on Wednesday. On Monday, the team’s convoy was shot at by unidentified snipers.
One of their cars came under fire from unidentified gunmen as it crossed the buffer zone between government and rebel-controlled areas.
After the incident, the team resumed their mission in the suburb of Muadhamiya, where they went to two hospitals and interviewed doctors and patients as well as witnesses of the suspected chemical attack.
The inspectors took away biological and environmental samples for laboratory tests.
The Syrian government has strongly denied that it used chemical weapons and blames opposition fighters for the attack.
The US says it will release its own intelligence report into the incident in the Ghouta region surrounding Damascus the coming days.
|Country||Forces available for Syria strike|
|US||Four destroyers – USS Gravely, USS Ramage, USS Barry and USS Mahan – in the eastern Mediterranean, equipped with cruise missiles Cruise missiles could also be launched from submarines in the region|
Airbases at Incirlik and Izmir in Turkey could be used to carry out strikes
Two aircraft carriers – USS Nimitz and USS Harry S Truman
|UK||Cruise missiles could be launched from a British Trafalgar class submarine|
The Royal Navy’s response force task group – which includes helicopter carrier HMS Illustrious and frigates HMS Montrose and HMS Westminster – is in the region on a previously-scheduled deployment
Airbase in Cyprus could also be used
|France||Aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle is currently in Toulon. |
Raffale and Mirage aircraft can also operate from Al-Dhahra airbase in the UAE
So logic tells me this cycle only means the U.S. is totally broke and so is the world powers. We now face a threat of another war but we have no money to pay for it, we have streched our limits, we know we can feel it in our pockets things are bad all over.
Media is saying possible intervention towards Syria is on thursday, logic tells me we should rv tonight before all hell comes loose in the Middle East, remember logic saids that with each action theres a reaction, please pray for the safety of the people of this entire region.
May my God bless all men and country and may all changes pending to mankind be given and be done in Jesus mighty name. Logic saids today streching towards tomorrow in the afternoon lets see how smart the ptb really are for if not…….now thats another story.
Hello All –
I offer for consideration that maybe peace and abundance are not mutually exclusive. Only we human beings made it so in the past. The world, and each of us, is changing. We are changing so quickly that sometimes it feels as though we have entered the Twilight Zone.
Our thoughts create our reality. I say this from my heart, not intending to debate that possibility (my reality) in anyone else’s belief system.
I AM intending PEACE (for all) and abundance (for all). With a smile I intend it, and with all my thoughts and prayers intend we co-create it.

I am one of those, a licensed professional with a master’s degree, etc., etc., who honestly would self-describe as one of the working poor with an upside-down mortgage.
Maybe if this had rolled-out only as a speculative investment, then we would profit, the dollar would devalue (at least some), and over time the separation of RICH and POOR would widen. And we would prefer being on the easier side of that gap.
But WOW(!), this bigger picture unravels the grim tapestry we started seeing for the world. This is the gift (so many of you call our blessing) that is going to keep on giving.
If there truly is (for the first time ever in the modern history of man) now enough resources in this world to go around – and we have the technology, brains, and HEART, to end this old acceptance of our “haves and have-not” mentality…
if WE say we want something different… then nothing limits those possibilities except our continuing to believe that someone else having something means we have less.
But we’ve learned, in our short or long time as Dinarians, that “MAN, that may be a WHOLE lot of money!”…”What’s the rate now!?!”
I suspect most of us are thinking (and having a whole lot of pleasure doing so) how we can surprise family members, friends, contribute something really lasting to improve our community, country, or ease the difficulties in this world.
We have each ALREADY been changed profoundly by this experience.
And the world will change as quickly, too. Believe it.
Wars (my opinion) are economic ones, primarily. Ability to recruit for ill-purposes is dependent on the disenfranchised – those having little or no hope for anything better.
WE are on the brink of a whole new game with more fair rules, with enough monopoly money, and we can play with anyone we want.
The internet alone has allowed us to become friends with the people in those countries who are supposedly our enemies (current or past).
People who we know who have faces and stories; new friends who basically want the same as we do – a good life for their families, a good future for their children, good schools, food, water, shelter… time for love.
I am no Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (regardless of the use of enthusiasm herein). For many years I spent much of my time in my head thinking, and buying into the worldview we were often taught – that working hard ensured financial security and success, that the United States was ALWAYS honorable, that differences like being Republican or Democratic weren’t negotiable –
and I often fell for all the distracting strategies designed to keep us focused on our differences, instead of our common desires and our basic goodness as individual and collective human beings.
What happens during disasters? Heroic acts of kindness, compassion, pulling together – having each other’s back is what we do. THAT is who we are at our core.
I am tired of being played as a pawn in the “us vs. them” game by those who profit from my confusion and possible fear of ideas, people, different religions, colors, etc., etc.
Most of us are leaving that game of automatic divisiveness as we are past that point of frustration that shouts “this isn’t working for me anymore”. Some of us are just bored with that game altogether. Many are seeing behind the screen and realizing there is profit in keeping us divided. There is MORE PROFIT in lifting everyone up together.
I am ALL IN with each of you as I pray for peace for all the people in the Middle East and for our servicepersons’ safety.
I do NOT think we have to choose between our personal benefit financially and peace. Maybe the caution we should consider when considering “what we pray for” is to not limit what we think miracles can entail in the first place! Peace for all of us (before and after RV). diane

So many times we as Americans forget, so has been with past events in time, see things keep happening over and over again right in front of our eyes but we as Americans are so blind to see it.
This morning I woke up to see that the U.S is planning a strike against Syria and to my delight (RV IQD)
I said to myself this has happen before, we need to see the patterns of events that are going on around us
they are flooding the market with info on Syria and how the Middle east is going to implode with all of this rage and oil production is going down which is going to cause high gas prices please,
please do not believe this garbage they are trying to take the attention of the big big prize (IRAQ) and there wealth
see I am going to open you up to a possibility
now Iraq has been pumping oil but there is no true platform for them to launch into the global market as Iraq would like to
so if we (the U.S) can take the attention off of the prize cause conflict in another area as Egypt, Syria, Turkey, Jordan and so on – if we can give a vision that all chaos is breaking out in the middle east and then turn around and launch Iraq’s oil into the world stage, to make up this so called lack of oil that is not in the market, in my words the corrupt will make Mo money, MO money, Mo money,
IMO the greedy has to get paid first before anyone else that is the way corruption works
no one tells you hey I am corrupt – what they do is mask you until they get theirs and then they move on and you will get a glimpse of it later on down the road after the baby low level corruptions try to get theirs.
Well let me get back to my point
after seeing that we are going to strike Syria I ask myself the same thing you should ask yourself when you read an article or listen to someone or something and that is (why, for what, when is, where at, how and who from) if you can do this it will give you better clarity of what is going on
and always trust yourself than go out trusting these idiots on the net giving false info everyday
if it does not make since then do not believe it – trust in yourself not a guru – that is the only way I have been able to keep sane in this investment for so long, reason in your mind and you will be closer to the answer you need
now I ask myself how in the ** is America going to war with Syria when we have no money (Dinar Rv) what better way to cover up a windfall than a war
no one ask questions during war – Americans are patriotic to the core and the government knows this – when there is a disaster we rally and this is the perfect cover for something big to happen in this investment and the time is now.
Those are my thought I do have more, please forgive my grammar and misspellings I just had something on my mind I wanted to share thanks — Tyleredwards436
Sandyf TNT Member : A realistic perspective.
I am grateful to the intel providers and accept that the information is relayed to us in all good faith.
There are however certain practical aspects of this situation that never seem to be addressed.
Here in Thailand a can of coke is 15 baht, at 30/dollar that makes it about half a dollar. I would imagine in Iraq that prices are on a similar basis, if fact this was borne out to a certain extent by comparisons last year.
If the dinar was to have a value of $3.44 then a can of coke should be priced at around 15 fils. How much is a can of coke in Iraq?
Coincidently, at that rate the fil would be about par to the baht.
Secondly, wages. The minimum wage in Thailand is 300 baht/day. On a similar basis Iraqis would be paid about 300 dinar/ day. How much do Iraqis get paid?
Have price reductions and wage reductions taken place? I am fairly certain that if they had we would know about it.
When will they take place? which will come down first, prices or wages?
From an accounting point of view, there has to be an effective point in time for wages to be adjusted, eg tax implications, and I am fairly certain that steps would be taken to ensure that prices are adjusted at the same time. Hate to think of the outcome if it was not simultaneous.
The most appropriate point in time in the financial calander would be the start of the year, or alternativly the start of a month. Accounting systems have month end and year end reconciliation routines built in that must be run before the next period can be opened.
We are continually told that it can happen at anytime but I have a problem accepting the reality of that actually happening. I really hope that things are being lined up for a changeover on Sept 1st, being a Sunday it is more than an opportune day. Just looking for a realistic prespective. Sandyf
[wittsend] TNT Member: TAKE THAT TIME.
As a practicing attorney for 33 years, I’ve learned a few things.
One, no need to be in a hurry once you exchange your currency.
Two, ask the bank, be it WF or any other for some help in setting up you initial accounts to maximize you ability to protect it from computer hackers.
Three,the world isn’t going to collapse economically anytime soon, so you have time to assemble a team to help. The bank can be helpful, a local bar association or CPA association can be helpful.
The point here is you have time, and now you have money, to get the team on board. TAKE THAT TIME.
Four, do not be afraid to shop for an attorney or CPA or investment counselor. Ask friends, particularly those with resources, both financial and intellectual, who they use to help them. there is nothing better than to get a recommendation from a trusted friend.
Five, don’t be afraid to ask the state bar association or CPA licensing authority to determine if they have ever had an ethical violation(s). If they have, don’t use them.
Six, stay informed about world and national events, do not continue to be a low-info person.
Seven, relax and enjoy the ride. If your professionals are helping you and you are keeping your self informed, you should be able to enjoy your then current economic situation.
But above all, don’t listen to the peeps here or anywhere that tell you that the sky is falling tomorrow and you better have everything figured out today. You have time, take it one step at a time, and be careful and methodical with how you handle it.
[calibeach] wittsend I hope this is captured because it is really good advice!
Moneycoach – TNT Member:
DON’T PANIC………NO NEED TO RUSH……TAKE YOUR TIME….
The team is vital. And, don’t be timid about getting rid of people you have already worked with, even if they might have been there with you from the beginning, or at some seminal moment. You will grow, and so will your need to reach out for ever more sophisticated council. Think legacy

Oil minister Abdul Kareem Luaibi [Elaibi] has confirmed that BP is interested in getting involved in the redevelopment of the giant Kirkuk oil field, which is suffering from falling output.
According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, production at the field has declined to 260,000 barrels a day from 900,000 bpd in the early 2000s, after years of injecting water and the dumping of unwanted crude and other oil products into the field’s reservoir.
Mr. Luaibi also denied reports that Russian oil major LUKoil was interested in the field.
Separately, he said the government likely will approve the sale of ExxonMobil‘s stake in West Qurna-1.
