Baghdad / Obelisk event:
Peace be upon you
The Sudanese government has remained silent about US President Joe Biden's decision to extend the state of emergency in Iraq, which was issued about two weeks ago. Until now, the government, the legislative authority, and even the resistance factions are hiding behind walls of silence. The media and communication platforms do not raise this most important sovereign issue for those familiar with politics and economics.
On the other hand, we notice a meaningless debate about the (development) that will be launched after the vote on the federal budget, which is scheduled to be for a period of three years, and it is an explosive budget, as it is described, in terms of the amount of money that will be spent, but it is also explosive in terms of The huge deficit that it entails, and it is incomprehensible why a large expenditure is allocated that results in a large deficit?!, unless the goal is to carry out a legitimate withdrawal of all the money in the state’s accounts.
This is the 20th time that the (executive order) No. (13303) related to Iraq, which was signed by President George W. Bush after the occupation in 2003, has been renewed. It grants supernatural powers that allow the head of the White House to bypass the controls of US legislation, in order to protect American interests and security. National, a case available in Washington since 1977.
Under the cover of this (executive order), the assassination of the leaders of Al-Nasr was carried out, which took place at Baghdad Airport in early 2020 under the direction of former US President Donald Trump, which is the same thing that allows any US president to carry out whatever he wants inside Iraqi territory.
Perhaps the missions of the US military bases currently in Iraq are linked to duties related to this matter, which is what makes Iraq on the level of Syria on the list of US classifications, given that Syria is also under the provisions of another executive order.
In the media, the (executive order) is called (the declaration of a state of emergency), which is a meaning that has political and economic significance that makes the country in which it is declared a country on the list of anxious and insecure countries, which means a country that is not attractive to investments or trade exchanges, which is what created a bad reputation. For Iraq in front of global companies and capital.
Therefore, American companies avoid working in Iraq, including avoiding working in the most profitable sectors, such as the energy and oil sectors, and this becomes more evident when we see that the American Exxon Mobil Company sells its contracts, more than once, to Chinese and Russian companies.
There are no US investments in Iraq or even commercial exchange except within the limits of (stock goods), and they appear in the form of used machinery and equipment, including cars that are out of service due to accidents, with the exception of the recent opening of a single branch of the (KFC) restaurant chain in one of the richest neighborhoods of the capital. Baghdad, with the fact that this restaurant is one of the worst types of restaurants in the world, and it is the cheapest, and it is considered one of the popular restaurants that spread exclusively in the black and immigrant neighborhoods.
The US ambassador to Baghdad herself sought to open a Kentucky branch in Al-Jadriya, which is an attempt by her to achieve a commercial achievement on the ground that may be recorded as a success for her during her diplomatic work.
Perhaps the US ambassador does not understand, or is ignorant of, the effects of what the administration is doing in Washington when it renews every year the state of emergency, which leads to Iraq remaining in the category of dangerous countries, and which makes the smallest US banks avoid granting investment guarantees for investment and work opportunities in Iraq.
In such ambiguous circumstances, the Sudanese government believes that it can lure the World Bank to finance the development path project that it called for recently, and these perceptions are very naive, because the World Bank will not enter a single dollar into countries included in the US emergency list.
