[BondLady] seems i got bashed pretty heavy from some places for it as i didn't have a clue to what was really going on in iraq politics and the people in charge so i redefined and proved what i said
[BondLady] 1 of the best posts though i've seen out there was sent to me by some one..... from a woman who used to or may still have her site on the net and whose claim to fame was she has read the constitution...was...highlander
[BondLady] this is highlanders coment from some other site....................................... I happen to agree with BondLady. Power sharing does not work in any government in any country. That would be like our President having to power share with a co president.
There is some background to the Kurds that one must look at to understand that whole situation. And as for Allawi he is just a walking disaster. He gets his funding from the Saudis.
The Saudis are primarily Sunni based in power and they are also the number one country in the region for financing terrorism and Al Qaeda.
A lot of the problems that Iraq is having is started from outside influences but not from the places that people suspect nor from the places the US media always shoves down our throats.
Allawi won't even attend the meetings in parliament or cast a vote.

Allawi has tried to stage a walk out on parliament and the council of ministers this year and completely shut down the government.
The list used to have 91 seats in parliament and be a united front. Because of Allawi they now have about 32 seats left because the list has fractured and formed new parties and separated from Allawi.
As far as Barzani and the Kurds go that is a long story all by itself but I can tell you this, they only want Kirkuk for the oil and the very rich agricultural land in that region and as we all know the Kurds don't think they should have to share their oil profits with anybody else.
The Barzani family has been in control of the Kurdistan region for over 30 years and his son is set to take over after him. Now how is that democratic?
Under article 140 the Kirkuk province has the right to choose whether they want to be a part of the Kurdistan region or fall under Baghdad and have their own provincial council.
They chose to be their own province and they are suppose to hold elections in March. The Kurds don't want to let it go so they surrounded Kirkuk with the Peshmagra last year illegally.
They did finally pull about 20 miles out and set up camp but they still shouldn't be there at all. Maliki is moving the Iraq forces in to ensure that they have a fair e election without interference IMO.
[BondLady] Maliki is moving the Iraq forces in to ensure that they have a fair election without interference IMO.
And as far as BondLady changing her opinions well I say good for her! When a person is researching and new information is brought to their attention an honest person will look at it and study it which may then alter their original thoughts and opinions and cause them to grow.
I think that is what you see happening with BondLady and I for one am okay with growth in an individual occurring!
[BondLady] so to me she had this right someone had said i was flip flopping basically said i was for allawi last year but for maliki this year
[BondLady] most of you very well know me for at least 3 years now what my stance is for allawi he's a db in the biggest way just like sadr is and anyone who can't or won't see that is clueless
[BondLady] our chats and posts fly all over the net theres not a person out there who wants there name dragged through the mud relentlessly everytime they talk
[BondLady] through all the years i've tried to help people with my history and breakdowns of this whole mess...and to try to help without any hidden agendas it gets old
[tlm724] yes especially when you ALWAYS back it up with fact
[BondLady] no matter what we say or do some of the simplest lilttle things will be brought up and escalated into major gripes and bs sessons like timmys laws she found for instance
[BondLady] when she said new laws were put in the gazette
[BondLady] she didn't clarify some of these laws were old saddam laws that had to be amended before they could be used so they were and passed into law and gazetted
[BondLady] some were brand new laws and not old ones with amendments so we get bashed for not saying new laws and amended laws
[tlm724] which will be corrected this morning
[BondLady] its enough to make us all want to stop doing what we do it gets old will we stop? NO
[BondLady] i made you a promise and i'll keep my word ...my word is my bond and without that there is no truth
[BondLady] will my team continue on inspite of ungrateful appetites who seek to crush and hurt us - sure will cause we're all cut from the same cloth were tough like john wayne toilet paper...rough and tough and don't take crap off no body a little humor to a screwed up situation
SOME MEMBER COMMENTS AFTER CHAT:
SHREDD: Well said and thank you Bondlady for your expertise in the politics of Iraq....it comes from the countless hours you put into this investment. You so very clearly explained what is going on and grabbed the history too.
I've learned that everyone has their own opinions and their frustration with being wrong and having to wait brings out the negative emotions. I've learned what to look for, what to trust, and when we see the actions like you said, it paints a little more of the picture.
The banking and investment laws are a good example......so many people are only looking for the rv an not clues to the greater picture. So many people won't even read or skim an article if the title doesn't say cbi or dinar in the title.
This adds to ignorance and in the laws example, they lack the ability to understand how, even though these don't say rv tomorrow, they are a massive, factual, key accomplishment and open the doors to investment which is the fuel behind any economy.
Without this, you have no investment, no loans, no substantial growth, then, no progress, and then, no need for and no possibility of a strong dinar.
Was a stronger dinar "supposed" to be out by now? Sure, but it didn't. Can't have the cart before the horse. If people would just look at the whole picture, they'd see this!
From my banking experience and exposure to all financial products, its been concerning for me to not see a dang thing from Iraq all this time, but now I know we will and I know what that means to an economy.....the fuel for what we are waiting for.
REFLECTION: Well said Bondlady and thank you for everything you and you team do.
Shredd, I agree. I don't read every article and don't fully understand how all these laws and political actions work. I understand ya can't have the cart before the horse.
I'm grateful and very thankful that you and others here break things down and help us learn how things work. With everyone's help here, I've learned a little and it seems pretty evident that there's forward progress being made.
Maybe not as fast as I'd like to see it, but there's progress being made. With any luck, maybe things will speed up soon.
Thank you all for the help you give in all this. It's truly appreciated.
TLM724: I want to take a moment to address the recent comments and posts from other dinar related web sites.
I speak specifically to the owners, administrators and moderators. When you post comments about other dinar sites it may be a good idea to read, understand and know what is being discussed prior to making your comments public.
By continually making comments about what you perceive is being said without prior knowledge of the subject you appear uneducated and uninformed.
Please have some pride in yourself and practice responsibility for your members. This will be the one and only time I will address such nonsense.
