[BGG] Ok you guys....here is my latest thought. Based on the news this morning, it appears as though Parliament Speaker Osama Najafi is the acting Al-Iraqya leader (Allawi is nowhere to be seen) Maliki is even dealing directly with him. Najafi has selected all new ministry picks and PM Maliki has publicly agreed to accept them (formally). Should this actually happpen in the near future - we are very, very close to a real RV (NOT A BS RUMOR). GOI formed - Erbil needs to be implemented and, as AQ would say...Bing, Bang, Boom.
[BGG] Al-Iraqya did say they would do this - they were picking replacements for Allawi almost as soon as he got the words out...
[BGG] They also said right after he took his hat out of the ring "they were sick and tired of him" subverting their interests with his own. Meaning every time he pulled this kind of "jackassery" they didn't get anything they wanted either.
[newmonies] Awesome BGG...

[BGG] It looks as though Maliki is much more comfortable "forking over" some of the power - just as long as it didn't go to Allawi. Sounds like he was pretty much convinced Allawi intended to "OFF HIM" as soon as he was "minimized". I would take this as Maliki feeling pretty safe to give up some power - as agreed.
[newmonies] Maliki is playing nice now, 4 sure and that's what the ppl of Iraq need... O'l yeah, us 2...
[BGG] That currency bill in the House (US) doesn't have a "snowballs chance" of effecting any real change. They dream about the impact that will have....in reality - absolutely none. These people need to get real.
[newmonies] agreed... how about the part where they stated "the meetings that just took place"?
[BGG] I'm working on some more info - should have it tomorrow. But things are looking up for us for sure.
