SEVERAL THINGS THAT NEED TO HAPPEN BUT MOST ALL OF THESE ARE ALL CONNECTED AND WILL HAPPEN ALMOST SIMULTANEOUSLY. FIRST THE NEW GOI SET AND SHOULD HAPPEN EARLY THIS WEEK. DOESN'T HAVE TO BE SET FOR THE RV BUT WE THINK THE CBI AND WORLD BANK HAVE COME THIS FAR THEY WILL MAKE THAT A PRIORITY. NEXT ARTICLE 140 AND THE HCL HAVE BEEN READY FOR IMPLEMENTATION FOR MONTHS NOW.
I TRULY EXPECT TO SEE THE VALUE CHANGE ONE DAY AND THESE TWO LAWS TO BE IMPLEMENTED WITHIN A COUPLE DAYS POST RV.
NEXT THE RV IS ANNOUNCED THEN WE NEED TO HEAR THAT THE DINAR IS A RECOGNIZED TRADEABLE CURRENCY AND THAT WILL BE SET TO GO PRIOR TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT.
NOW...I AM BEING ASKED HOW MUCH LONGER AND I CAN ONLY SAY THE FOLLOWING...FIRST THE GOVERNOR OF THE CBI, MR. TURKI, HAS STATED BEGINNING LAST YEAR THAT MID 2014 WE WILL HAVE A NEW VALUED CURRENCY AND COMPLETE FINANCIAL REFORM!
THEN HE HAS STATED THE SAME THING AT LEAST 3 TIMES SINCE THEN BEGINNING IN JAN 2014 WHERE HE ACTUALLY SAID JUNE FOR A TRADEABLE CURRENCY. HE HAS ALSO STATED NOMINAL VALUED CURRENCY.
I CAN'T GIVE YOU ANYTHING THAT SOUNDS BETTER THAN WHAT THE MAN THAT IS CHARGED WITH MAKING THE CHANGE HAS SAID AND HE HAS NEVER...SAID ANYTHING ANY DIFFERENT THAN THIS.
THEN WE HAVE HAD MANY OTHERS TO SAY THE SAME TIME TABLE FOR OTHER ACTIVITY TO TAKE PLACE AND THAT INCLUDES THE MINISTER OF FINANCE COMMITTEE AND THE NEW ISX PRESIDENT THAT STATES THEY WILL OPEN THE NEW ISX AND WILL BE TRADING INTERNATIONALLY ON JULY 1. I THINK WE ARE IN AN AWESOME WEEK COMING UP THAT EVEN IF IT DOESN'T BRING FORTH THE RV IT WILL REVEAL EVEN MORE...ACCURATE TIMING OF WHEN WE WILL SEE MALIKI GONE, GOI SET, AND ALL REQUIRED FOR OUR RV AND MAY EVEN SEE AND HEAR THE RATE.
FOX ran a report phrased like 'John Kerry headed to the Middle East to urge Maliki to "guarantee his gov't will be more inclusive" in the future'... My take on the Kerry "narrative" was to at least look on the surface as though the US wasn't there to "directly effect" (as per the POTUS) the choosing of the Iraqi leadership...to "urge" Maliki to be "inclusive"...however, I am POSITIVE we are there to "help with the choice" and it won't be Maliki. I doubt he lasts much longer...this "gambit" of his with ISIS and allowing them entry hurt both the Iraqi ARMY and his own chances. I believe it greatly hastened his coming demise.
I will leave everyone with some thoughts... though there is turmoil...considerable uncertainty...I am optimistic about Iraq's chances now. Maliki has captured the world's attention...and not in a good way...which in the short term - should be good for us (and them).
The truth is coming out everyday and this is good.
