[BWM] It's been one of those days... good news followed by not so good news...
[BWM] news today has been good in the fact that there is movement in a positive sense... but that was tempered by some other information that is yet to be determined if it could have underlying issues with the big picture... I know that sounds vague but I really can't elaborate on those things
[cmoore] Bwm. If the Underlying issues are in fact true..how long could this set us back..thx
[BWM] cmoore that's the big question... again, Iraq has done what they NEED to do for the RV... at this point I feel it's about global stability
[woodguy61] BWM Global stability will never be perfect , so PUSH THE BUTTON. By not pushing the button they are just adding to Global Instability with world economies going down the toilet
[BWM] woodguy61 it doesn't do governments any good to revalue then fall apart...
[bahamamama] BWM Do you think the US will head back to Iraq?
[BWM] bahamamama it's documented we are never far away...

[BWM] the theories are complicated... and I'm not saying it's one way or the other... BUT the concerns are there nonetheless for me until I see this. Again, I am still hearing positive things but I won't come on and sugarcoat something when I feel there is something else that COULD be a factor
[artle01] BWM Just signed on. Can u confirm that EO13303 and Coalition Order 39 was extended today?
[BWM] artle01 have heard rumblings but nothing concrete for me yet... but I also have not been looking at that honestly
[wittsend] BWM It is important for iraq's stability that the HCL be implemented.
[BWM] wittsend again IMO everything that Iraq NEEDS for an RV is done... but other factors affect what we hear and see
[wittsend] BWM I did NOT say it was necessary for an RV, but IMO it's very necessary to provide some common economic purpose and participation for the common man in Iraq.
[BWM] wittsend promises have been made... assurances given...
[BWM] we live in a democratic society... how much concern do we have for our "common" man here from our government?
[TRUENORTH] BWM do they need rv for promises or assurances
[BWM] TRUENORTH promises were given prior to RV... so consider what you think that means
[walkingtall1943] BWM The international market and there internal politics have a lot to do with all of this. Just my opinion.
[BWM] walkingtall1943 my concerns are not related to that... but yes those are players in the big picture
[oucrazy] BWM . . . I think what is so confusing to peeps is the fact that you have two basic groups of intel. One stresses the Iraqi involvement and politics (articles) and thhe second group of bank watchers. The article peeps are saying Iraq has so much more to do and the bank peeps saying it's done.
[BWM] oucrazy I hear them both... and yes while there has been movement on the screens, WHERE that movement has been created from is one of the issues for me... the whole Iraqi thing I think is babysitting gone bad... at some point, you will see a resolution that will mysteriously appear from nowhere and all will be good... at that point, take the money and run
[wittsend] BWM True, but those are circumstances that exist now and have existed for a long time. Strength and the ability to portray strength count for much, in large measure, because the average Jamal doesn't understand much more than that.
[BWM] wittsend I don't expect complete peace... I just the yahoos with the guns to stop shooting everytime someone posts on facebook something good or bad... (IPO plug for the financial ppl)
[hummingbirdrose] BWM So, Coach, is your best projection that we should enjoy the weekend and just forget about it?
[BWM] hummingbirdrose thats what's bothering me... I don't have enough to say walk away at this moment... again, still positive news there... I guess we'll just have to ride this wave and see which side of the fence to fall on
[wittsend] BWM The causation behind that dichotomy can be aided with a rise in the country's standard of living. That is supposed to occur with the HCL, if it is implemented and implemented fairly. Whether their idea of fairness approaches our idea is a question I can't answer.
[BWM] wittsend they can't afford to do any of that without an RV... so which do you think is holding the other up?
[BWM] wittsend that's kinda my whole theory.. it will all happen together.. and at that point we won't care
