3-21-2012- Med A MINISTER WITHIN THE IRAQI LIST…IS QUOTED AND REMARKING THAT MALIKI HAS NOT PROVIDED ANY SERVICES TO THE IRAQI PEOPLE AND THE LATEST WAS SECURITY. THEN IT IS REMARKING THAT MALIKI HIMSELF DID RESIGN, THIS IS MAJOR NEWS AND THIS IS ONE REASON I THINK IT IS NOT IN THE MEDIA. IT DOES THROW IRAQ INTO A POSSIBLE POWER STRUGGLE…AND ONCE HE DOES RESIGN, IF TRUE, PARLIAMENT WILL HAVE TO HAVE AN EMERGENCY SESSION.
3-21-2012- SWFloridaGuru There were reports yesterday that Maliki resigned. If these reports are true and were interpreted correctly we will know today. It will be world news. There have also been rumors that the NC has already taken place or is currently underway. They may be hiding this from our eyes for security purposes but I have seen no proof of this myself.
3-21-2012- Enorrste [Post 2 of 2] There are positive signs. Maliki has accepted Allawi’s choice for Defense Minister. Allawi has given Maliki 4 demands to be met in the next 72 hours, one of which is to get the national conference going NOW. Maliki has done everything in Kuwait to get released from Ch 7. A UN rep is working fervently behind the scenes to get them released. Ban Ki Moon is supposed to be at the Arab Summit. Maybe he will assure Maliki that they will get released. If he does, then maybe the RV will be announced at that time.
3-21-2012- Eagle Has Landed Yesterday’s news article suggested that Maliki resigned s Prime Minister of Iraq. We all know the articles out of Iraq are one part truth and nine parts smoke and mirrors. It appears, after due diligence, that Maliki is still in power and still performing his duties as the Prime Minister of Iraq.
3-21-2012- ScottiG [Post 3 of 3] In a where are we now comment, I can state that we truly are close. I know that speculation abounds but the bottom line is ‘the powers that be will get this done‘, It is all about the money. I still look for this process to come to an end verrrrrrrry soon!
3-21-2012- Doc Maliki choosing a minister of defense may not have occurred yet…Iraqiya block members as denying this. We will have to wait on the body of information to be released before we can say for certain. We have seen several articles talking about Iraqi issuing government bonds. The same articles discussed the need to be released from chapter 7 so the bonds can be internationally traded like the US treasury’s. A healthy bond market will help support an increased value of the dinar ie RV. While we do not think everything will be in place by the summit, our opinion is we are a few months away and not years. We just need the GOI to get in gear a little faster. We report, you decide.
3-21-2012- Enorrste [Post 1 of 2] IF they hold the national conference and agree on the formation of the government and IF the Arab Summit is still a “go” after the conference, then we should see the RV prior to, at, or just after the Arab Summit. IF the conference doesn’t happen then it is likely that the Arab Summit will be a “bust” for Iraq. This isn’t likely, but it is possible. In that event I don’t see the RV until June when the IMF will release Iraq from Ch 7, finally. [“continued in post 2…stay tuned”]
3-21-2012- Adam Montana National conference is a joke, does it motivate them? I’m sure it does. Does it really MEAN something? I don’t think so. I don’t think the summit is a “pivot” at all, it’s nice that they are involved, but the RV is much bigger than this Summit. GREAT news on Chapter 7 this morning, but it’s still being worked on. I also have some leads on potential news in other areas but I’m waiting for official confirmation…until that happens, I’m declining to make an official comment.
3-21-2012- ScottiG [Post 2 of 3] AGAIN WE SEE TEST RATES and everyone has gone off the deep end thinking we will get $12 – 14 +. Again they are wrong. I was almost convinced as to the possibility of this but then I was able to confirm that we are again looking at system test rates. We are looking at a totally different rate (in line with where my thoughts have been for some time). There are some who think .86 or $1.00 is the rate we should expect…though possible for an extremely short period, this rate is highly unlikely. [“continued in post 3…stay tuned”]
3-21-2012- Bear5642 IRAQ IS ON THE MOVE AND THE HEAT HAS BEEN APPLIED AND WE WILL SEE THIS COME TO PASS. I CAN ASSURE YOU WE ARE REAL CLOSE NOW, SOME THINGS HAVE HAPPENED…AND WE WILL SEE AN RV. MY GUY…FROM IRAQ…RECEIVED WORD THAT HE WILL HAVE THE…LD’S…IN A MATTER OF A FEW DAYS…CERTAIN POWERS STEPPED IN AND THE PIECES ARE IN POSITION – “CHECKMATE”.
