THE FOLLOWING ARE MY OWN THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS:
YESTERDAY BRINGS US TWO ACCOMPLISHMENTS,1. A TROOP IMMUNITY AGREEMENT AND 2. KURDS WITH A COMPLETED GOVT. AND SOLIDLY IN CONTROL OF THE DISPUTED AREAS, COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS ARTICLE 140.
THE CURRENT CRISIS OF WAR GAMES GIVES US CAUSE TO BE DISTRACTED AND LOSE FOCUS ON WHAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT.
IF YOU WERE AN E.R. DOC AND YOU HAD 10 PEOPLE ALL SWARM YOU AT ONCE, YOU IMMEDIATELY WOULD TRIAGE THE SITUATION QUICKLY AND ASSESS ALL OF THE PATIENTS QUICKLY TO ADDRESS THE MOST CRITICAL NEEDS. YOU WOULD SPRING INTO ACTION AND ADDRESS THOSE MOST LIFE THREATENING ISSUES FIRST RIGHT?
QUITE SIMPLY YOU PRIORITIZE THE NEEDS.
A FEW WEEKS AGO WE SAW ARTICLES FROM THE CBI SAYING THAT THE REASON THEY HAD NOT ACTED TO ESTABLISH A REALISTIC RATE FOR THE DINAR WAS DUE TO LACK OF POLITICAL STABILITY !
TODAY WE SEE THE CBI IS TALKING AGAIN ONLY A LITTLE LOUDER, ABOUT THE SAME ISSUE ONLY THIS TIME THEY MAKE THE POINT THAT SECURITY IS NOT PART OF THE EQUATION ONLY POLITICAL STABILITY !
FORTUNATELY, WE ARE PART OF THE WAY TO THAT GOAL SINCE THE KURDS ACHIEVED THAT GOAL IN THE SEMI-AUTONOMOUS REGION BY COMPLETING THEIR GOVT.. MMMM
OZ (CBI,IMF,WB,U.S.T.), PATIENTLY WAITS TO PUSH THE GREEN BUTTON TO ACTIVATE THE PRIVATE SECTOR.
BY NOW MOST OF YOU KNOW OF THE TRUE RATE OF THE DINAR WAS MOVED SIGNIFICANTLY AFTER THE NORMAL TRADING DAY ON THURS. AND REMAINS FLATLINED AT 1116.9
SPECULATION ON WHY IT WAS MOVED IS WEAK BUT COMMON SENSE TELLS US BASED ON OTHER ARTICLES WE SAW YESTERDAY THAT THEY (CBI), INTEND TO DEFEND THEIR CURRENCY VIGOROUSLY WITH NO CEILING !!
THAT IS MORE THAN A CONFIDENT STATEMENT, ALMOST TO THE POINT OF BRAGGING !!
IN ADDITION, IN ANOTHER ARTICLE THE CBI STATES THEY HAVE INCREASED THEIR CASH RESERVES TO A TIDY SUM OF 70 BILLION DOLLARS AS WELL AS DOUBLING THEIR GOLD RESERVES 3 TIMES THIS YEAR !! I
BET YOU MISSED THAT LAST PART, DOUBLED A THIRD TIME !!
INTERESTINGLY THEY DON’T MENTION THE NUMBER. THAT’S NO ACCIDENT !! THE LAST TIME WE WERE TALKING GOLD WE WERE LOOKING AT 90 TONS, SO DOES THAT TAKE US TO 180 TONS ? MMMM
OK, SO TODAY THE CBI TELLS US LOUDLY, THEY WANT AN ELECTED, FUNCTIONAL, INCLUSIVE GOVT. RIGHT ? RIGHT ! AND THEY TELL US THEY ARE MORE THAN READY FINANCIALLY, IN FACT THEY ARE SAYING THEY CAN BACK THE CURRENCY WITH NO CEILING !! WOW !! I’M SPEECHLESS !! WELL, ALMOST LOL HEE HEE
WHO GETS INTO THE CONVERSATION NEXT ? YEP, THAT’S RIGHT !! THE EMPIRE !! WE HAVE ARTICLES UP AND DOWN THE FREE WORLD CALLING FOR THE OUSTER OF MALIKI, TO SUM IT UP !
BUT SINCE OUR PRESIDENT HAS A LITTLE DIFFICULTY LEADING, AS EVIDENCED BY HIS PREVIOUS YEARS IN OFFICE, WE HAVE MERKLE, CAMERON, ECT. SUPPORTING OUR EMPIRE AND ITS' MISSION THERE !!
WHY SUCH LOUD SUPPORT ?
MAY I AGAIN REMIND YOU ALL ABOUT THOSE CURRENCY SWAPS DONE IN LIEU DEBT REPAYMENT THAT OZ ARRANGED !!
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS OR FEARS ABOUT THIS PROJECT AND IT’S SUCCESS, LET ME SLAP YOU INTO REALITY !
WE WILL SEE THIS !!
I HONESTLY DON’T KNOW WHAT DAY BUT EVIDENCE IS MOUNTING FOR ACTIVATION BY JULY 1ST DUE TO QUI CARDS PLANNED TO BE ACTIVATED, THE ISX STOCK MARKET PLANNED TO LAUNCH INTERNATIONALLY, AND FATCA PLANNED TO START BUT COMPLIANCE BY BANKS ARE DELAYED TO JAN.1ST I BELIEVE.
SO WHAT’S LEFT BEFORE WE SEE OUR DREAMS COME TRUE ?
WELL, WE NEED TO BE AWAKENED FROM OUR NIGHTMARE FIRST!!
IN OUR THIS DREAM, SOME GUY THAT TOOK OVER A COUNTRY CALLED IRAQ I THINK ! HE KILLED MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE THAT CAME FROM IRAN AT SOME REFUGEE CAMP. HIS SOLDIERS WERE SHOOTING THEM LIKE PIGS IN A BARREL AND DRIVING OVER THEM WITH MILITARY VEHICLES,
HE TORTURED PRISONERS, FALSELY IMPRISONED POLITICAL OPPONENTS, TRIED MULTIPLE TIMES TO HIJACK THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM IN THE COUNTRY, AND TRIED BLOWING UP POLITICAL RIVALS CARS WHILE THEY WERE STILL IN THEM FOR GOODNESS SAKES !
PLEASE !! SOMEONE WAKE US UP FROM THIS HORRIBLE DREAM !! SHAKE ME !! BECAUSE WHEN YOU WAKE US UP YOU WILL FIND THAT IT WAS ALL JUST A BAD NIGHTMARE AND A NEW DAY HAS DAWNED !!
WHEN THESE TWO PEOPLE TALK, WE NEED TO LISTEN !! NEVER,NEVER,NEVER, GIVE UP ON YOUR GOOD DREAMS, AND TRY TO FORGET YOUR NIGHTMARES QUICKLY!! LIFE IS A COLLECTION OF FAILURES STRUNG TOGETHER AS WE CLIMB THE MOUNTAIN.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE WINNERS AND LOSERS IS THAT THE WINNERS KEEP LEARNING FROM THOSE FAILURES AND STEP IN A BETTER SPOT AS THEY CLIMB !! GOD BLESS ALL FAMILY !! DOC
AGAIN, THESE ARE MY OUN THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS !!

Trouble in Iraq: ISIS, Oil and the Dinar
"it seems to have benefitted Iraq’s currency, the dinar – which rose 4% in value against the USD on June 12th, where it has remained solidly pegged ever since. As noted in the price chart below, gone are the fluctuations of day by day trading. Afixed peg seems to be in place, likely to stave off inflation which typically sets-in in times of crisis.
While the Iraqi central bank is not very open about its dealings, nor up-to-date with its data (its website still posts 2012 forecasts on its home page), we would probably be right to suspect that it will keep its money pegged to the USD until such time as the ISIS insurgence is neutralized.”

How Nouri al-Maliki fell out of favour with the US
Slighted by years of neglect and stunned by the Iraqi military capitulation, Washington has lost faith in the embattled leader
He said the White House had told Maliki that "as long as those deep divisions continue or worsen" the central government would be unable to stem the sectarian crisis engulfing the country.
Obama urged the Iraqis to form a new government, holding out the inducement that it would "make it much easier to partner than it is right now".
The move away from Maliki is precipitous. In testimony to the Senate on Wednesday, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, said repeatedly that the Iraqi government had failed on its commitment to combat sectarianism.
This week, one of the US's former "winners", Ahmed Chalabi, has slowly re-emerged as a potential consensus candidate if, as seems increasingly likely, Maliki finds himself adrift.
Once a Pentagon favourite, but for the past 10 years a US pariah, Chalabi sat down with the US ambassador to Baghdad this week, according to the New York Times.
It is a move that, in such a combustible political climate, is sure to further threaten Maliki's tenure.
The Guardian can confirm that Chalabi, a former deputy prime minister and source of some of the intelligence that led the US to war in Iraq, also met Suleimani. The stars may be aligning for him. But they are rapidly dimming for Maliki.
