AggieWifey: H: we are waiting on GOI. They are working on the day-to-day basis of GOI. My 3 contacts that are high up in US govt (former Pres, VP and ??) ... what I'm getting from them is there is a 50/50 chance of Maliki staying/going. Not even the US govt knows if hes goign or staying. A list has been handed over to have him removed - they have the signatures to remove him. I THINK they said they have 17 additional. And major opinion of everybody is Maliki doesn't want it take to vote. He will lose ALL safety nets if it goes to vote.
Precious] H: So most think - and my opinion is .... he will probably seat the government, IQD will RV, then he will walk away and resign. The Iraqi people need this $ WWAAAYY too bad ... no civil war. We have additional troops back in Iraq and private contractors on the ground - and a bunch more going. There will not be a civil war.

Precious] H: If this goes to a vote and they vote him out. It becomes a worse issue for US. Then we would be looking towrads mid-July (if they follow Constitutional law to the letter).
[Precious] H: I think he will fight it to the deadline (which is today or tomorrow). I think he will resign, then RV.
[Precious] AggieWifey: H: I think 5-7 days out at the soonest. Its not that simple, theres paperwork etc with the Parliament. If you strictly take the RV to 100% done -- CBI is done -- nothing left for them to do, or the IMF, UST, etc. Everything RV related that Iraq had to do .... is done. It's a GOI ISSUE!!
[Precious] H: I'm not looking for it tongiht/tomorrow. But I believe it will be next week, my personal opinion. I'm disappointed I haven't got more info. I've got only 1 call today that was of any importance. AggieWifey: H: I spoke with Blaino earlier (he's working on a car and thus not here).
[Precious] H: Lost train of thought. oh .... I was told i would have info by 6 pm ... that was 1.5 hours ago ... don't have anything.
[Precious] H: The banks have NO CLUE as to what's going on. Most places are stopping sales of VND, but I'm not sure why. It's got me in a pickle, don't know why
Precious] H: Info out of Iraq is getting hard to get. My airport contact, I haven't talked to him since last week. My understanding is VP landed there 5AM and left today
