7-19-2012: IRAQI DINAR GURU GUESSES!!!
7-19-2012 Intel Guru Blaino Talibani, allawi and the others are now pressing for the national conference at an almost hysterical level after months of their surrogates and lieutenants nibbling away at the mass of complexities separating each of the various groups from reaching some common agreement that might allow for some kind of forward movement. the national conference is indeed the time and place where the major issues of iraq will (supposedly) be settled with some degree of finality, the fully and publicly recognized goi will be displayed and the entire matter will be brought off in a very scripted and programmed way. Everyone is now writing the script and learning their parts, and that is the current delay.
7-19-2012 Newshound Guru Adam Montana I’m positive that they have the new currency ready to go, at this point it’s a matter of Chapter 7 and the HCL. REgarding “when” we are going to see those new notes – they originally said September, now they are saying early 2013, and in another article they said it would take 2 years to get them out so that would put us into 2014. Now… which of those is accurate? I don’t think any of them reflects the TRUE intent of Iraq, and I find that to be a positive thing… if they had ONE story and stuck to it, I would believe it…but that’s not the case. They bounce all over the place with conflicting stories, as if they had something to hide. If the plan is to dramatically increase the value of the Dinar, they DO have something to hide! They don’t want that announced, because massive amounts of speculation would occur and it would drive down the value. They want the opposite to happen.
7-19-2012 Newshound Guru Mike Shabibi…knows exactly what he is doing…once this government situation gets done and he knows where thats at and he can have the laws and everything he needs he is going to take this forward…he has not stopped once – we say sometimes this RV has been postponed or that it hasnt been done but he has done nothing but move forward. You should have confidence in whats going on over there…we just have to realize it is in their time not ours. Just sit back…watch and enjoy the view as we take this ride together.
7-19-2012 Newshound Guru Med COUNTRIES WITH TWICE AS MANY PEOPLE IN POPULATION USE A BUDGET FOR THAT COUNTRY OF ABOUT 1/2. THIS SO FAR SINCE THE BEGINNING, EVEN WHAT THE CPA WAS IN CHARGE, HAS BEEN THE WORST MISMANAGEMENT OF A COUNTRIES FUNDS I HAVE EVER WITNESSED.
7-19-2012 Newshound Guru Adam Montana I think we can be reasonably confident that when they choose to raise the value, we will know about it relatively fast – it is a big deal and it’s not going to be done quietly! In other words…who cares about how fresh the “intel” is – none of it matters until we get to cash in. Iraq is moving in the right direction, and all the rumors in the world won’t get you closer to cashing in. When Iraq is ready to do this, they will.
7-19-2012 Newshound/Intel Guru BGG “Breaking News: Kurdistan Region President Calls for Urgent Iraqi national Conference”: This is the most incredible news!! There are several different ways to look at this piece of news – all of them good. My take – Barzani has just called Maliki and the NA’s hand. They had made it look like they were all for “reforms” which they are, in reality, just 2 years late making good on their agreements. Talibani has wanted this NC meeting since last January (in the worst of ways) – if it looks like Barzani is leading the charge on this thing and any one of the above characters stumble getting out of the gate – it won’t go well for them.
