Stryker: I don't think it will occur until after the election because in my opinion election month is not the right timing for an event like this. Tony has been calling the RV for the last 3 years and is not the person to be following unless you just like being disappointed week after week. The CBI is in charge of the monetary system for Iraq, not Tony.
The CBI has made great progress in preparing Iraq for a relaunch into the international stage of business. The Iraqi Economic Reform Committee has a clear and defined plan but the new government needs to be behind this plan and that is another reason it will not take place beforehand.
Believe me, I want this over with as much as the next person but there is a clear path of logic that one must apply as well and logic has told me that Tony has more excuses than Carter has peanuts...
Watch what's going on in the Elections, what the CBI is doing, and where the frozen money could be heading to. Iraq has every law amended or approved to get this done but they must implement them beforehand. There could be a few other laws that need to be passed through parliament before an RV could occur but I don't think so.
Stay grounded and don't start spending money based on what Tony says!!
Hope that helps.
