9-8-2012 Mountainman: The articles are saying the reforms will be announced in the next few days and that this is Maliki's last chance to avoid getting a no confidence. Will he finally cave, implement Erbil, appoint the Ministers and hold a National Meeting or will he go back on his word again and have to be removed? We will know for sure in a few days how this is going to go but I believe a deal has already been struck.

The number one thing that needs to be done for the currency to be revalued is the naming of the Ministers. They have got to get the power divided. Also needed is the HCL and Article 140.
The Federal Courts Law and the Amnesty Law are also important laws that have to be passed. The strongest possibility of what could happen is Talabani comes back, if his health is good, they hold a couple of meetings and this could be over rather quickly.
If he is unable to continue, Najafi will take over and this will go very well for us. I am very hopeful with what I've heard and seen that something is going to happen very soon.
9-8-2012 Maggie123: I have no doubt that this is what the deligation told Maliki, and in no uncertain terms. "The sources said the delegation Senate component of John McCain and John Lieberman and Lindsey Graham have told Maliki said in an interview expressed anger and out of diplomatic etiquette, in what they described speech frankness and openness, and the sources said that the delegation was told that allow the submission of Iranian support for the Syrian president over the skies of Iraq and its territory means that Baghdad has become a part of Iran, a violation of the agreements signed between the Iraqi government and the U.S. administration."
9-8-2012 SocalDinar: As Gold purchases by the public increases in Iraq it will increase its value. These increases only cause more loss of confidence in the fiat currencies. I see an increase in gold prices as really a decrease in currency values.
Now the CBI wants to sell gold too. When central banks start selling gold, and add gold to the market at predetermined levels (under market price) The supply increase should drive cost down. Enjoy the Weekend!
