MDDinar: Please help me if I missed something in yesterdays call but on Wednesday according to Tony/DC, everyone was ready and we were just waiting on the IMF to release it. They were supposedly telling everyone to "Be Ready" instead of "Getting Ready". Now on yesterday's call all of a sudden we are now waiting on Maliki to get his friends positions in the new gov. before HE releases the RV. Again, Did I miss something???
BrownBear: As Tony and DC said yesterday, Maliki is in control now. He is bound by is own Gov't, as he can't become PM again unless he completes the RV within a time window that the Iraqi's have placed on him. If he goes over the time limit, he loses the ball game. In the meantime, he is trying to gain strength by picking some of his own leaders. The bright side of this, is it appears that the window is fairly short and he will have to act soon.
