[MarkZ] Everyone, put down your razor blades. Mt Goat wasn't that negative.... :) I am just now getting back into the swing of things after time away to deal with the death of a close friend. Thank you all for the many prayers. I will come back in later today/tonight to help make sense of the crazy intel world with you. Things are great though!
Bailey2: [Poppy3] Letter to the Congress -- Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to the Stabilization of Iraq: "...the national emergency with respect to the stabilization of Iraq that was declared in Executive Order 13303 of May 22, 2003, is to continue in effect beyond May 22, 2014.
" ...I TOLD YOU BEGINNING TWO WEEKS AGO IF THEY DIDN'T RELEASE THE RV PRIOR TO THAT DEADLINE OF THE 22ND THEN ALL THESE OTHER COUNTRIES THEY OWE WAR RETRIBUTION WILL SUE AND TAKE ALL THAT MONEY. ALL THESE COUNTRIES ARE STILL DEMANDING THE RV SO THEY CAN EXCHANGE THE AMOUNTS THEY TOOK AFTER FORGIVING AS MUCH AS 60% OF WHAT THEY WHERE OWED AND TOOK DINAR IN PLACE .
[Poppy3] IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME NOW TO SEE WHAT EFFECT THIS WILL HAVE GOOD OR BAD. THERE WAS A PAYMENT TO THE MEMBERS OF THE PARIS GROUP BUT NONE OF THE OTHER COUNTRIES THEY OWE RECEIVED ZERO AND THAT'S WHY THE MET A FEW WEEKS AGO FOR A WHOLE WEEK AND DEMANDED THEY BE PAID IMMEDIATELY NOT LATER. I DO KNOW THAT VN WAS NOT REPORTED AS MEMBERS OF THE PARIS GROUP AND THEY ARE OWED MUCH AND DID TAKE LOTS OF DINAR AND THEY FORGAVE $$$ IN THAT EXCHANGE.
harley_1:Frankie Frankie, last night you said that the WB asked the GOI to put pressure on the CBI. Why doesn't the WB put pressure on the CBI directly? That's like my grandfather asking my DAD to get me to do something rather than asking ME himself. doesn't make sense. can you help me understand why this is a good thing?
Frank26: When Your father did his part and You ......... Did not. He sought help from a direct family member to aid in knocking some sense into You so that ......... You would.
Grandfather may not be at the level to enforce You.
But when You realize many are telling You to do some thing when You have not .......... Reality tend to create pressure.
In this case ........ The look of a grandfathers face with concern not forcefulness .......... Is the key to ......... Direct Pressure.
Friend ......... There is a lot of carbon in Iraq's oil. IMO .......... This pressure and more to come will help them make ......... Diamonds.
Aloha Day ........... KTFA, Frank
Kelly123 : I think it is a great thing that the DFI protection continues! It will allow them to do what they need to do in a controlled and planned fashion, instead of creditors taking it and messing things up. IMO it is irrelevant to the RV, but gives dinar holders more stability and security. Exciting times! JUST DO IT!!!
Frank26: BRAVO !!! ......... Wonderful post ...... LOL ........... Amazing how a CC over night can change or adjust ............ Emotions into Facts.
Bandit:We're almost there........
Frank26: Not meaning to get off my horse of discipline but IMO ........... I am already there.
Bandit : Wish I was there.......But the CBI has not changed the program rate yet. So, How'd you get there before everyone else?
Frank26: I used a back to the future flux capacitor that I keep in my junk box.
Sager : Posting this just for the sake of timing... This is the KWD, not the IQD:
Central Bank unveils redesigned banknotes – Hi-tech [KWD] dinars to go into circulation from June 29
KUWAIT: The Central Bank introduced the sixth edition of Kuwaiti banknotes yesterday in the presence of senior officials of state bodies and agencies. “The new notes will go in circulation from June 29, 2014,” Governor Dr Mohammad Al-Hashel said during the ceremony. Older banknotes will run in parallel with the new ones until their withdrawal is completed, he added.
The new banknotes reflect the Central Bank’s sincere efforts to keep pace with state-of-the-art technology used in the banknote-printing industry and improvement in security specifications, Hashel pointed out. The Kuwaiti flag is an inspiring artistic base for all the new banknotes to illustrate and promote national identity, he added.
Among the many new features, the banknotes have a raised decorative design, allowing visually-impaired people to identify a note’s value by feeling it.
Holding a note to the light will reveal a falcon watermark and incomplete shapes that combine to show the note’s value, while wave shapes change color and circles are seen in the solid art print when a note is tilted. The security thread also changes color upon tilting, as well as revealing artwork and the banknote’s value upon directing light on it.
The striking Liberation Tower, a massive 372-m structure that is one of the main landmarks in Kuwait City as well as one of the tallest buildings in the world, appears on the front side of the quarter-dinar banknote as a symbol of Kuwait’s independence since its erection in 1996. The banknote’s backside portrays a traditional wooden Kuwaiti door, a plaster carving and the first Kuwaiti coin used locally.
Arguably the most familiar and iconic Kuwaiti landmark, the Kuwait Towers are illustrated on the half-dinar banknote’s front as they soar mightily into the sky. The banknote’s backside alludes to Kuwait’s marine life and the significance of preserving it, with images of the endangered hawksbill sea turtle and the silver pomfret (zubaidi), Kuwait’s most popular fish.
A superb illustration of the Grand Mosque, the largest mosque in the country as well as a symbol of Kuwait’s Islamic identity, is portrayed on the one-dinar banknote’s front. The backside of the note displays a real-life illustration of an iconic column, one of the many influences of the ancient Greek civilization that swept across and settled in Kuwait’s island of Failaka.
With its powerful pyramid steel structure, the Central Bank of Kuwait’s newly constructed building is portrayed on the 5-dinar banknote’s front side, representing the bank’s objectives of ensuring resilience, stability and a sound monetary policy. The back of the note shows one of Kuwait’s oil refineries and a tanker as a testament to Kuwait’s precious source of prosperity.
The glorious Kuwait National Assembly Building, a symbolic pillar of Kuwait’s democratic constitution, is beautifully illustrated on the front side of the 10-dinar banknote. Kuwait’s diverse desert life is seen on the banknote’s backside – a captivating illustration of a falcon oversees a seated camel dressed regally in a traditional sadu saddle.
On the front side of the 20-dinar banknote appears the illustrious Seif Palace, a symbol of sovereignty and ruling power of all of Kuwait’s erstwhile rulers and where the country’s affairs are administered. The ‘boom’, the largest and most popular traditional Kuwaiti dhow, is featured on the backside of the banknote, an element that alludes to Kuwait’s modernization as well as its rich economic and commercial history that is linked to the deep blue seas. Another element included on the back is a pearl diver, one of the earliest professions that enabled Kuwaitis to earn a living before the discovery of oil.
Frank26: I Dreamed about You last night KTFA Family.
I also Dreamed of this.Sweet candy.
RANSOM : So are we thinking that Iraq might have some more new currency released about the same time as Kuwait?
Frank26: It is a serious consideration ............ Yes.
There is evidence of so much synchronization ...... Timing involved with many MR Steps.
They are overlapping the Kurds ..... Budget ..... Banking changes .... ISX ...... Ect.

Focus not just on what is easy, convenient, comfortable, free of charge or free of risk. Focus on what is valuable and on what is possible.
To get something valuable and meaningful out of any task or experience you must put value and meaning into it. It’s worth a little inconvenience to bring more goodness into the world.
Don’t pass up the opportunity to add rich substance to life just because it is a challenge to do so. Face the challenges, make the efforts, and transform the best possibilities into reality.
You won’t learn very much if you spend all your time with people, places and thoughts that are already familiar. Go out beyond what is comfortable and familiar, and discover how very much there is to discover.
Life is amazing and absolutely worth the investment of your time and trouble, so make that investment. Life is a grand adventure, so live each day with your own sense of adventure.
