MarkZ: Everyone, put down your razor blades. Mt Goat wasn't that negative.... :) I am just now getting back into the swing of things after time away to deal with the death of a close friend. Thank you all for the many prayers. I will come back in later today/tonight to help make sense of the crazy intel world with you. Things are great though!
Bailey2: [Poppy3] Letter to the Congress -- Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to the Stabilization of Iraq: "...the national emergency with respect to the stabilization of Iraq that was declared in Executive Order 13303 of May 22, 2003, is to continue in effect beyond May 22, 2014.
" ...I TOLD YOU BEGINNING TWO WEEKS AGO IF THEY DIDN'T RELEASE THE RV PRIOR TO THAT DEADLINE OF THE 22ND THEN ALL THESE OTHER COUNTRIES THEY OWE WAR RETRIBUTION WILL SUE AND TAKE ALL THAT MONEY. ALL THESE COUNTRIES ARE STILL DEMANDING THE RV SO THEY CAN EXCHANGE THE AMOUNTS THEY TOOK AFTER FORGIVING AS MUCH AS 60% OF WHAT THEY WHERE OWED AND TOOK DINAR IN PLACE .
[Poppy3] IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME NOW TO SEE WHAT EFFECT THIS WILL HAVE GOOD OR BAD. THERE WAS A PAYMENT TO THE MEMBERS OF THE PARIS GROUP BUT NONE OF THE OTHER COUNTRIES THEY OWE RECEIVED ZERO AND THAT'S WHY THE MET A FEW WEEKS AGO FOR A WHOLE WEEK AND DEMANDED THEY BE PAID IMMEDIATELY NOT LATER. I DO KNOW THAT VN WAS NOT REPORTED AS MEMBERS OF THE PARIS GROUP AND THEY ARE OWED MUCH AND DID TAKE LOTS OF DINAR AND THEY FORGAVE $$$ IN THAT EXCHANGE.
