I was unable to get on the call… sorry… you’ll have to get someone else’s notes. This was the main news; otherwise just callers with question. – Adept1
Tony: Good morning, TNT! Today is Monday, June 16th, 2014. We never expected to be here but you’re going to find out why we are. I will give you as much as we can and I think you’ll appreciate it. For those who don’t want to hear it, hang up now. I don’t know why you called in anyway!
We have had a tiring day already, I’m telling you guys that it is back and forth and up and down, information is left, right and sideways. There’s nothing negative, I mean, the end of the world isn’t here, it’s just that I didn’t have the greatest Father’s Day like I expected to, but that’s part of what we go though. We had a plan for this weekend; it was scheduled for this weekend. That’s how enthusiastic people were, happy, being quiet, and not telling the information we had and that you guys would love.
DC: I’m extremely frustrated just like Tony; we feel your pain. We should have gone through but at the very last minute, Maliki agreed and everyone agreed not to release this to the public until the Iraqi government is seated. They wanted a smoother transition. We understand that any minute of any day it can happen, but they’re just waiting. Some folks have already announced that they have the votes, they are saying that on television and websites in Iraq.
We understand it frees up again when it becomes offices and goes forward. It was literally in the process of going again, and then they did a last minute change. Highly frustrating for everybody, and that is as much detail as we can give.
Remember back in July and August there were riots in every town. They released the Q cards and it died down. It’s the same here – 90% of the problems would go away if they just release the RV. Now we have to wait for the new government and the new deal.
However, we are still in a good position, not that far off. On Monday, bank people were told to go home and not come back until 1. July, but then on Friday night they were called in again, that’s how close we were. You were supposed to have a great weekend.
Having said that, all the horse-trading has been done, and the new government is ready; the only person not accepting that is Maliki, and that’s why we’ve been stalled out these 20 days. However, we do think it will come in the next few days, given that the government was supposed to be installed last Saturday! Of course we will put out a blast, a tweet, and notifications on the new tntsuperfantastic sites.
Tony: I don’t think you’re going to wait until 30. June. I think a new government is going to be formally announced and you will see an RV and CGR immediately after that. I’ll go as far as to say I know it is scheduled before than. I know the time but I’m not saying. Meanwhile this deal is already cut behind the scenes; it has to be done formally before they call a vote. They put the results out today; I’m actually reading it! That’s really good news – the basic hurdle.
