11:44 AM [BGG] We are getting to be a bigger chat and lots of great researchers (other than ourselves) are stopping by...
11:47 AM [milndollarbabe] BGG agreed....when people start seeing analytical research and want to seek out truths and understanding of this venture...i think we will see more people stop in to check us out...so its important for the room to be open minded and allow others to speak their minds...
we just never know who might know something or have something to offer the room....lets hope we are the place where the bright minds come... think tank room

11:48 AM [Ogou] I was told a deal is in place Maliki says he will share the powers. On that Friday, Randy K also posted he is having a call 2 days later on Sunday. He also said he is personally expecting Maliki to share the power this upcoming week. Well, guess what Maliki didn't. So something is going on behind the scenes.
11:49 AM [BGG] Wait a sec - MALIKI, SHARE and POWER - are you sure those all belong in the same sentence??
11:49 AM [milndollarbabe] its an oxyMORON
11:49 AM [ubetcha] Good morning! Looks like I'm late again
11:50 AM [God's grace] ubetcha
11:50 AM [BGG] We have been wearing it out this morning
11:54 AM [milndollarbabe] I have made it my quest to only be part of rooms where there is a healthy exchange of ideas and analysis....this is how ive learned so much....debate, news, analysis....
its really invigorating to try to learn vs...just sit and wait on some "guru du jour" to enter and tell us what we want to hear....so we encourage you all to participate, join in, bring in the news, let us talk about the articles, and try to enjoy this process while learning so about building a democracy in action!
12:04 PM [BGG] "Jaafari to discuss with Deputy Ban Ki-moon political situation in the country" - Jaafari will get the word from Ban Ki-Moon to boost Maliki. He hates Maliki. So Jaafari is about to get the word "from on high"...
12:06 PM [LLN65] Good news hey?
12:07 PM [BGG] Also looking like Jaafari spending most of his time running around cleaning up Maliki-messes....it's like having a 2 year old in the house!!
12:08 PM [RayT] BGG it is time for a "time-out' for Maliki, don't you think?
12:08 PM [BGG] I think he's about there...
12:40 PM [kwanvestor] Anyone hearing anything about the Standby Agreement being extended beyond the 23rd? I've seen nothing on that yet.
12:41 PM [mrs bgg] kwanvestor Calling all mods...has anyone heard anything
12:42 PM [mrs bgg] kwanvestor We have awesome mods and they are more up to speed on the scoop!!
12:42 PM [kwanvestor] mrs bgg - Thanks, this issue is important as this is the way Iraq is paying their bills.
12:42 PM [Sugar Pie] Hey, Updaters - I am baaack...
12:43 PM [mrs bgg] Sugar Pie Yeah !!
12:43 PM [mrs bgg] kwanvestor Maybe Sugar Pie knows
12:43 PM [mrs bgg] Sugar Pie Do you know anything about the Standby Agreement???
12:44 PM [milndollarbabe] i havent seen or heard anything on it being delayed
12:45 PM [Sugar Pie] It was due to expire next week, right?
12:45 PM [milndollarbabe] Sugar Pie yes
12:45 PM [kwanvestor] Ok thanks. The SBA ends on the 23rd. If we don't see it extended this is fantastic news.
12:45 PM [BGG] kwanvestor - the big reason Maliki is doing cartwheels over the Kurds selling direct to Exxon and Turkey is the GOI is running out of money. They have been jerking everyone out of their fair share for over a year - and not caring about it.
12:46 PM [BGG] Now they have the Gov of Ninevah and his advisors getting into gunfights over not being paid since Feb - the Kurds have gone over a year.
