    By Simon Kent. Iraq’s embattled Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi (pictured)*a Sunni from Mosul, has been voted out of his position following a no confidence motion in parliament. The vote comes after mounting pressure on the Minister, following accusations that he was responsible for over billing scandals and favored defense contracts for friends and political allies. Notably, two of those accusing him were prominent Sunni politicians, Mohammed al-Karbouli and Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jubouri, underscoring how Iraq’s politics remains dysfunctional, but in many ways has moved beyond basic sectarian divisions. Obeidi hit back last month in a dramatic questioning session in parliament, where he caused a storm by listing detailed corruption allegations against his accusers. (Source: The Wall Street Journal.)

    By Omar al Jaffal for Al Monitor. Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News. Iraqi parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri issued a*warning against*involving the tribes in political disputes Aug.*14. His warning came a few days after the tribes affiliated with*Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi and parliament member*Mohammed al-Karbouli*interfered in a political dispute as the two*exchanged*accusations of corruption during the Aug.*1 parliamentary session. abouri seemed greatly concerned about the involvement of Iraq’s tribes in political conflicts. During a visit by a*tribal delegation to the parliament, he told a number of Iraqi tribal leaders, “Preserving the independence of the tribes in Iraq is an important and essential safeguard. The ongoing attempts to drag the tribes into side conflicts are designed to undermine the building of Iraqi society and the Iraqi state.” Iraq’s*tribes*are social institutions that have*preserved many customs and traditions that run contrary to the*laws of the state.*The tribes manage their issues, even serious crimes*such as*murder,*under a “blood money” system. A*majority of Iraqi politicians seek to please them, as they represent*large numbers of voters in local and parliamentary elections. Athir al-Jassour, a political science professor at Mustansiriya University in Baghdad, told Al-Monitor, “Since the Iraqi state was founded, there have been problems regarding the division of power, and customs and traditions have defined many of these problems, in determining both*political and social approaches to them.” He added, “Among the various conflicts within Iraqi society, power was divided between religion, tribes*and the rule of law, and the balance of power is tipped in favor of the one who can influence and protect.” Iraqi politicians’ complex relationships with their tribes must be managed with a*law regulating tribal affairs. The adoption of this law is an attempt by the Iraqi parliament to control growing tribal strength. Jabouri and other politicians fear tribal*involvement*in political conflicts, as*the tribes’ power*threatens*to undermine the authority of the state. The majority of the tribes are armed, and some even possess heavy weapons, which means that the outbreak of any tribal fighting could lead to*divides*no less dangerous than sectarian ones. Because of these tribal institutions’ complex relationships with each other, their involvement in politically motivated*fighting*may drag other tribes into armed conflict. Obeidi and Karbouli’s is not the first*political dispute to*reach the tribal councils. What makes*this time*different and more dangerous*is that the tribes have offered their absolute support to their affiliated politicians against other politicians. The defense minister*made his appreciation clear by posting a*video clip*of his tribe meeting*on YouTube. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    By Simon Kent. Unconfirmed reports suggest a Saudi Arabian national under the nom de guerre “Abu Wathbah al-Saudi,” has been shot dead in Mosul, the last urban stronghold of the self declared Islamic State. The terrorist’s role was apparently the recruitment of child soldiers. If true, it would only be one in a string of assassinations of IS members in the city. Last year, it was reported that two IS members were shot dead in Mosul by men smoking cigarettes on a street corner. In an apparent trap, the IS fighters were*killed*as they approached the men to arrest them for*smoking, which is strictly forbidden in IS territory. Other reports suggest Sunni resistance groups have reported IS locations to Coalition warplanes. (Source: Iraqi News) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    Hiya Wolverine! Yeah, going back in the memory banks (it's been a loooong time) I remember you and a few of the others from the old gang. Not brewing anymore, as I left my brewing equipment in Arizona when I moved back to Pittsburgh. But soon I'm going to pursue my photography full-time, going so far as relocating to an area where I can fully pursue this. Hence, I'm moving some dinar to fill out my lens lineup before I move next year. My new photography site is in my signature, so feel free to visit. :D

    By Simon Kent. Battling through an apocalyptic landscape of black smoke from burning oil, (fighters from the self declared Islamic State hoped this would hinder air strikes) Iraqi soldiers have reached the center of Qayyarah. Snipers held up the advance, before soldiers were able to capture a government compound. Qayyarah is just 60 km south of Mosul, and the gradual advance, with the aid of military pontoon bridges and Coalition air support, suggests IS are either crumbling fast or pulling back for a harder fight in Mosul. Led by a Sunni Colonel from the Jubbour tribe, the troops have found 1000 local residents still awaiting aid convoys with almost no access to clean water. Last month, the army recaptured a nearby airbase once known to Americans as Qayyarah West, and now US troops are back at the facility in preparation to lend a supporting role in the final assault on Mosul, IS’ last urban stronghold in Iraq.

    By Simon Kent. Coalition aircraft conducted 4 air strikes against the self declared Islamic State over the past 24 hrs, with “tactical units” being targeted near Ramadi and Hit in Anbar, a front of the Iraqi government and local anti-IS tribes. Another strike hit a tactical unit near Sinjar, which is close to Kurdish Peshmerga units. “Tactical units” are most likely pick up trucks that IS favor for moving across dirt tracks between towns in the vast, flat expanses of desert in Western Iraq. The small number of strikes in these areas, announced free of IS earlier this year, shows the group are still trying to retain a presence, while Coalition allies clearly work to ensure they do not get such a foothold by calling in air strikes.

    By Simon Kent. Prime Minister Haidar al Abadi (pictured) has remarked that the resumption of pumping oil into the Kurdish export pipeline from Kirkuk–from 70,000 bpd to an expected 150,000 bpd, is due to preserving the reservoir in one of the world’s oldest oilfields. Previously oil was being re-injected by the federal North Oil Company who did not want the Kurds to have access to it after a payment dispute. During the Iran-Iraq war, Saddam Hussein encouraged very rapid extraction from Kirkuk, a supergiant field with a high API, making it easier to refine. Rapid extraction*is thought to have damaged some reservoirs in the formation. Abadi also noted the importance of using gas in the field, which was impossible when oil was re-injected by the federal North Oil Company. Abadi noted, “We have to produce oil in order to get gas. This is a very old oil field, if this field does not produce oil, it can be degraded.*So we were told to pump oil from Kirkuk to Ceyhan.” (Source: Reuters) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.

    By Simon Kent. Two Iraqi brothers have constructed a robot dubbed “Alrobot” (“the robot”) to send into battle against the self declared Islamic State. The slick looking vehicle, the size of a small beach buggy, has an approximately 1 kilometer range and is controlled via laptop. If deployed, it would be among the first generation of unmanned fighting vehicles that can actually shoot targets. Currently, the US military is still developing these weapon systems, and the US Marine “Gladiator” robot (based on a similar principle to Alrobot) is still under development. This could, in theory, put the Iraqis ahead of the curve, although it is unclear how well armored the rocket firing device is, which also has a machine gun mount. For now, Alrobot is likely to prove a mere headache for ISIS, but since they already have a lot to deal with, that may be*no bad thing (Source:*Defense*one) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.

The donations, which range from the low-thousands to the millions, provide a picture of the media industry's ties to the Clinton Foundation at a time when one of its most notable personalities, George Stephanopoulos, is under scrutiny for not disclosing his own $75,000 contribution when reporting on the foundation. The list also includes mass media groups like Comcast, Time Warner and Viacom, as well a few notable individuals, including Carlos Slim, the Mexican telecom magnate and largest shareholder of The New York Times Company, and James Murdoch, the chief operating officer of 21st Century Fox.

The following list includes news media organizations that have donated to the foundation, as well as other media networks, companies, foundations or individuals that have donated. It is organized by the size of the contribution: $1,000,000-$5,000,000 Carlos Slim Chairman & CEO of Telmex, largest New York Times shareholder James Murdoch Chief Operating Officer of 21st Century Fox Newsmax Media Florida-based conservative media network Thomson Reuters Owner of the Reuters news service $500,000-$1,000,000 Google News Corporation Foundation Philanthropic arm of former Fox News parent company $250,000-$500,000 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publisher Richard Mellon Scaife Owner of Pittsburgh Tribune-Review $100,000-$250,000 Abigail Disney Documentary filmmaker Bloomberg Philanthropies Howard Stringer Former CBS, CBS News and Sony executive Intermountain West Communications Company Local television affiliate owner (formerly Sunbelt Communications) $50,000-$100,000 Bloomberg L.P.
