2-16-2013: Iraqi Dinar Guru guesses!!!
2-16-2013 Newshound Guru Mailman17 IN ESSENCE, IRAQ IS ON A VERY SHORT TIMETABLE TO GET EVERYTHING DONE, SIGNED AND IMPLEMENTED AND IMVHO, THEY SHOULD BE DONE BY THE 23RD AND NO LATER THAN MAY. BUT IT DOESNT MAKE SENSE FOR THEM TO AT LEAST COME OUT TRADEABLE…WHETHER ITS 1000-1 0R PAR. WE ARE LOOKING OUTSTANDING. THE NEWS TELLS ME AND I HOPE IT TELLS YOU AS WELL THAT WE TRULY ARE IMO…ALMOST HOME.
2-16-2013 Newshound Guru Mailman17 ART 140 AND THE HCL AS WELL AS THE BUDGET, I EXPECT TO ALL BE DONE BY THE 23RD OF THIS MONTH AS PER THE 140 CHECKS BEING ISSUED NEXT WEEK. IRAQ HAS HAS TOP LEVEL MEETINGS REGARDING THE PRESIDENTS. THE HEAD OF THE SUPREME COURT? GONE….AND REPLACED AND NOT BY A GOON OF MALIKI. TURKI? HE JUST MAY BE GONE TOO.
2-16-2013 Newshound Guru Mailman17 NOT CLEAR WHETHER IRAQ WILL PAY THE FEBRUARY LOAN OFF IN DOLLAR OR DINAR. I BELIEVE IT WILL BE IN DINAR I ALSO BELIEVE THAT WAS THE DEAL CUT BETWEEN SHABS AND THE IMF THAT IRAQ WOULD HAVE A TRADEABLE CURRENCY BY THAT DATE. THAT BRINGS US TO MAY, 816 BILLION DOLLAR UP FOR GRABS THEIR FROZEN ASSETS UNLESS THEY CAN GET OUT OF 7 BY THEN…AND WE ALL KNOW THEY AINT GETTING 7 WITHOUT AN RV AND POLITICAL STABILITY. THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE NOW SCRAMBLING TO DO, GET RID OF MALIKI OR AT THE VERY LEAST MAKE HIM A FIGUREHEAD TILL THE NEXT ELECTION.
2-16-2013 Newshound Guru Tlar I am reminded that with almost every statement that was made by economists and the CBI that mentioned they were delaying the removal of the zeros until 2014, they put a qualifier. “Unless the political situation improves”. If there is a real agreement allowing Maliki to finish his term, enacting the important parts of the original Erbil agreement like the Security Minister and making Allawi the president, this IMHO would qualify as real improvement in the political situation. It has taken the US about a month to nueter Maliki but they have achieved what I was beginning to think was the impossible. Maliki would not have agreed to this new Erbil agreement unless he received immunity from prosecution and a graceful ending to his riegn as PM. This is US engineering at its finest if I’ve ever seen it.
2-16-2013 Newshound Guru Tlar Article: “A Kurdish source reveals the political Summit of leaders of political blocs in Arbil, a Kurdish-American support” Talabini is either extremely ill or he is dead. The Kurds have not replaced him yet because it was to their advantage not to do so. Talabini suffered a debilitating stroke and he is in his late seventies. Before the stroke he had already expressed his desire to resign and he was sick all of the time. He won’t be back. If the agreement in Erbil hosted by the Kurds is real, it looks like Allawi will be his replacement. Nice move Barzini. Well played.
2-16-2013 Intel Guru OCrush We should hear something on this shortly. Now, Barzani has called for a formal announcement with all of the Kurdish leaders participating to tell the Kurdish people what took place during these closed door meetings. They will tell the people there future and announce something major. In turn Maliki, Nujaifi and the other bloc leaders will make there own formal announcement to the Shiites, Sunnis, Turks and Christians what they have accomplished and what there future holds. This is History in the making. Life changer for all the Iraqi’s and it is very well coordinated. Sunday is a new beginning for Iraq and should be veeery revealing to our timeline.
2-16-2013 Intel Guru OCrush One significant member of Malikis bloc works in London and is trusted by the Brits and U.S. He spoke for Malikis coalition. This lasted for a few days and it was VERY successful. In turn…Barzani and the Kurd leaders were so happy they adjusted there Budget and past it today in the Kurdish parliament. Formal agreements were signed so there will be no backing out when this was done. It also included all disputes with Kirkuk under Article 140:) It also included an agreement with the HCL.
2-16-2013 Intel Guru OCrush President Barzani has taken the bull by the horns. When he came back from his visit in Europe (Davos, Ireland and a couple of others) he decided to represent all of the Kurdistan blocs to end this crisis. Most significate, he now represents Talabanis Patriotic Union, with there blessing. He had meetings with all of the Kurdish blocs, the Sadrist Bloc, representatives from the US Embassy (Beecroft and UN Dels) and the National Coalition (Malikis Bloc).
2-15-2013 Intel Guru Goofball C L [CHRISTINE LEGARDE]…WILL BE SPEAKING SUNDAY NIGHT, 8 PM EST. SHE WILL ANNOUNCE THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC RECOVERY ACT OR PLAN. WE ARE TO SEE A RV MONDAY…EXCHANGE YOUR GOODS TUESDAY. WE MAY EVEN HEAR OF IT SOONER. THE HAMMER CAME DOWN TODAY FROM CHINA TO THE UST, TO THE IMF AND THEY PULL THE TRIGGER. FREE FLOAT IS WHAT I WAS TOLD. 3.42 THEN SKY ROCKET, AND IT WILL. DID NOT ASK ABOUT THE DONG OTHER THAN ITS GOING THE SAME TIME. DONT KNOW THE RATE, .478 MAYBE OR HIGHER…HEARD .91 AGAIN THE OTHER DAY AND BY YEARS END 2.00 PLUS, SEE, PRETTY DARN GOOD.
2-15-2013 Intel Guru Amadden I believe Goofball has said he has been told (rumor) that it could be tonight…but in my opinion I think it will be more Sunday…I believe that both the Dong and Dinar will go at the same time. [Should we still be expecting an announcement then sometime this weekend?] I would say yes with what we know as of now. what we know and have been told we are looking good…but with all of this and we all know so well, this can change at a moment’s notice.
2-15-2013 Intel Guru Amadden I have not been giving out any Intel for some time. But, I do still hear from my sources and I am still a firm believer in what they say and that is that everything is done and out of Iraq’s hands. I am going by what my people are telling me that the IMF has full control and when Largarde says it is time then we will see it and not till she knows that everything is in place.
2-15-2013 Newshound/Intel Guru Flashing Article: “Iraq delivers Kuwait $ 500 million within 48 hours” another great article that let us to know how close we are. Again we should concentrate on the real drivers and not the adds on. Imo, We are within the relevant range. Be positive and have a wonderful day because everything is great.
2-15-2013 Intel Guru Blaino this bronco is in the CHUTE….Clock is tickin, this baby will be kickin!!!! Never knew things could be this hot in february…we have an unusual situation with regard to foreign currencies, at least one and mebby several BANKS…As it pertains to their ability to ‘see’ ANYTHING…more later on THAT…Been same same since late yesterday, we were watching for changes…None so FAR…Which is great news! the gousa ‘moneybox’ is still full and locked DOWN…gousa – govt of U.S.A. ding your dong and hold ON…I think we’re going to hit this thing …Really frickin hard! back soon with MORE… Mehopes!
2-15-2013 Newshound Guru Kaperoni Here is a quote from this 2011 article, from this you can see the money appears to be already “allocated.” . “Mustafa said the Iraqi government has allocated around US$1.5 billion to compensate people from disputed territories as part of implementing Article 140.” Implementation of this phase of Article 140 is very good. And a step in the right direction to bring a civilized relationship between Baghdad and Kurdistan. Implementation of the agreement and this phase, overall is good for Iraq so it is good for us and our investment.
2-15-2013 Newshound Guru Kaperoni Article: “Article 140 compensation starts next week” I wanted to clear something up. I have heard that a RV must happen to fund this. Or the funding is as a result of the passing of the budget. This article printed in 2011 clearly states the money is already been allocated (set aside) so it’s more than likely already sitting in a bank account. The issue seems to be just spending based on the agreement. An agreement more than likely was the result of Maliki wanting to stay in power and agreed to start paying in exchange for the Kurds continuing support.
2-15-2013 Newshound/Intel Guru Bluedog Article 140 compensation starts next week. The Head of the Kirkuk branch of the Article 140 Implementation Committee says the compensation cheques will be distributed next week. Kakarash Sidiq said, “The compensation cheques were to be distributed when the budget was approved, but due to some problems it was postponed until next week.” [As you said on Wednesday night, everything has been done for a while now and I think just a timing issue where when RV is announced, the entire Iraq thing is announced. Just Timing?] yes.
2-15-2013 Newshound/Intel Guru BGG Article: “Kurdish-US talks to give Allawi the Presidency” This would surely balance the power in Iraq, be an enactment of the Erbil agreement and accomplish a lot. However, it would also signal a fairly short life span for Maliki’s career. He won’t survive this (politically).
2-15-2014 Newshound/Intel Guru BGG The State Department is saying that Maliki will be done and over with by next week. I think they wanted some kind of balance of power in place. The demonstrations were the thing that got us going in the right direction. Najafi called for Maliki to resign. The U. S. State Department is talking about Allawi, that he might be a legitimate candidate for the President of the Republic. The budget is not the lynch pin for us, the balance of power is the lynch pin. As soon as the balance of power is changed in Iraq you will see some kind of caretaker or interim government put in place & we will see some kind of change in the currency fairly quickly. They don’t have to be out of Chapter 7 yet. The news is beyond spectacular. The only thing better would be an actual RV itself.
2-15-2013 Intel/Newshound Guru Poppy3 It’s not an easy task to remove a President or a Prime Minister, it’s almost impossible without everyone working together. But, IMO, it looks like Parliament has their mind set now to try to give the people of Iraq what they have been promised, things Maliki has blocked over and over to better the people of Iraq. I have said for 3 years now that if the people of Iraq get what they are supposed to get, good things for them, then you and I will get the great things that we have been waiting on. This is great news. If it works out, we are going to be some happy campers.
2-15-2013 Intel/Newshound Guru Poppy3 We got news that they removed Turki from the CBI and also the judge has been removed. We know that these were Maliki’s key people, running interference for him. We know that Talabani was running interference for him & now he is out of the picture for the most part. This thing is boiling down, getting Maliki under control. Got a call saying he will be out of his position on Wednesday or Thursday of next week. It’s just a projection. They are trying to get him to resign or they more than likely will take a vote and remove him.
2-15-2013 Newshound/Intel Guru BGG Article: “Nijaifi launches fierce attack against Maliki, calls him to resign.” Personally, I think this is Najafi’s way of giving the body of MP’s (all under his leadership) a bit of a dig. As in, get in here and do your jobs or you won’t have one soon. Like I said…– it’s about time for them all to be thinking about the “post-Maliki” era and what their future looks like in it. I doubt the dissolving of Parliament is a real issue. The rest – is profoundly dangerous for Maliki.
