Iraq's currency devaluation news spread rapidly last week when a copy of the budget draft for next year was leaked to the local media. The news sent the unofficial rate skyrocketing at exchange houses,
upsetting local businesses and panicking Iraqis. The unofficial exchange rate before the news varied from 1,200 to 1,240 dinars against the dollar. That rate reached as much as 1,400 soon.
Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al Kadhimi said that because of the inevitable public reaction, he will be the 'first hurt' by the devaluation and austerity measures in the 2021 budget.

The source said that the committee's establishment came after allegations were made against Al-Hashd for being behind the attacks and facilitating the transport of official vehicle missiles.

In the middle of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, employees of a German security company live in a different time. A Reich war flag hangs on the walls of a lounge, in the hallway the German army slogan "Do not complain,
fight" is emblazoned in Gothic script. Above the doors, also in old letters: "Operations Center", "Troop Kitchen" and "Latrine 1" and "Latrine 2". This can be seen in a video from 2017 that is available to a media company.
At the time, the Asgaard company was located in the middle of the Green Zone, only around 500 meters from the United Nations Office and less than a kilometer from the Iraqi Foreign Ministry. The situation in the political center of the Iraqi capital was no accident.

Após o impacto positivo da estréia do filme #SergioNetflix queria compartilhar um pouco sobre quem realmente era #SergioVieiradeMello mas acima de tudo narrar o que realmente aconteceu depois do ataque de #Bagdad 2003. Estávamos juntos havia mais de 3 anos quando a bomba explodiu

Rappelons qu'immédiatement après l'attaque contre l'Ambassade américaine, Donald Trump avait clairement annoncé la couleur
