letsroll] LBnFL I'll guess ... 7
[Dovi] millionday do we know if they have the Secretariat considers it has completed ratification procedures..I remember them saying
[Dovi] there was nothing more to do re Iraq's failure to disclose certain money..but that's not the same thing.. if the Secretariat
[millionday] they are setting up tariff and have applied where it needs to be right now and also have established customs laws and also centers have been constructed -- the port of faw and many other free zones are also prepared ----
[jimplants] The wto has said basra will be a wto free trade entry port for the world
Read More Link On Right
millionday] what we do know is that they have of course moved leaps and bounds --- yes basra will be their economic capital --- easy to see why with that oil !! smile
[LBnFL] millionday have we seen anything that would lead us to know which of the 8 steps they are currently in? Or is is all to "secretive", and we wouldn't hear about it?
[millionday] they are in the process of accession hun -- the laws in place have moved them through and of course their independence they have been training since 2010
Domino] millionday We'll have to see the rest but the one thing that really sticks for me is how secretive and subjective the process is. We may never know when they have completed these steps or even if they will need trade and currency to be full members. Do you agree?
[millionday] i dont think that is like a one right after the other step -- these are steps that need done but may be done in other order
[Rocknrv] Looks like there and step six for the WTO session
[millionday] Domino no -- they need the currency to be tradable ---- it is the world trade organization --- so they have to have world tradable currency at a reality rate or iraq loses
[Domino] millionday Then what is the 12/31 appointment for?
[millionday] the thing is that they may just be the step as reported -- we first saw that we were looking at dec 31st so we will have to see -- it will change and we will know - Domino great minds smile
[Domino] millionday Better said - "It's Iraq"!
[jimplants] Iraq is where the usa wants them its all planned read the future of iraq we are heading to the end of this
[millionday] i thought that was very informative and i love it when they talk in language that can be understood without a PHD smile
[Melba] millionday thanks for explaining
[hstrymknwmn] me too
[jimplants] Great great great report
[nona] millionday very informative - thanks. so if i'm understanding this correctly, it seems that the qualifications for accession may be set differently for each country?
[millionday] it is very interesting to see how the US is pushing -- hmmm -- could it be for the money -- i am shocked
[Domino] I love it when I can read and understand - thank you for that
[millionday] yw all the time smile let me go see what else i have -- i was really searching last night for that -- glad you liked it
[millionday] the new puter doesnt have everything on it as you can imagine and hope lol brb
[Dovi] millionday no doubt the money, but also see locking them into world trade which apparently goes with the thinking toward an enduring democracy with less terror. Whether the plan is feasible and works is another question but probably part of the motive
[Domino] millionday It looks a little like the US want Iraq to be a member to in part solidify their participation in the world market so the expense and work put into getting them there won't be displaced by some other government agenda which might develop.
[wmawhite] the announcement of Oman's entry into the WTO was made only 5 days prior to the official date of entry. So expect anything with Iraq.
[aJw70] Million.... thats what I'm saying... the interest of the usa is by far in my opinion the most important sign... pushing them through even when people say their not stable.
[Domino] So this is familiar, it all comes down to power & not likely money although there will be some which increases power.
[nona] Domino power usually = money
[Dovi] aJw70 well yes..but definitely not all...it would be good to ensure a wild card election up the path doesn't undo the positioning that has taken so long and so much to gain
Domino] nona In part I agree - power is control which is not always money although options increase with it
[aJw70] If the usa really has a stake is this.... they would make sure who ever is put in office knew the rules.
[letsroll] aJw70 the usa has hand their hand on Iraq from the start 103 acre US embassy ... cheers
[Dovi] aJw70 at this time that's the obvious plan of this govt..but they have to know how quickly the worm can turn
[nona] Domino true enough
[tbob] Dovi my favorite show as the world turns :-)
[aJw70] If our government is really pushing this through.... they must have a lot invested
[tbob] oops as the worm turns :-)
[aJw70] It still my fail... but it wont fail before they get paid
[nona] aJw70 agreed - enough to sacrifice many lives to the cause
[Domino] nona If we take that a step further, as applied to our personal situation, we will get the $ first and the power will come later with the options it offers. I wonder how many of us have are committed to learning how to deal with the inevitable power that will result.
[aJw70] We have no power... the usa goverment has it
[Domino] Rudie, are we making you crazy?
[nona] Domino that's been something i've spent many hours contemplating. for me, along with the $ comes a profound responsibility of stewardship
[aJw70] But thats another topic for another day
[Domino] nona I salute you - it does!
[Dovi] lost power ... was trying to say the US has to consider that a sectarian government may well be elected in the future, rejecting much of what has been accomplished during a secular .. well closer to a secular administration...having the WTO and certain other failsafes in place would make it difficult to undo quickly
[nona] Domino rally a topic that could be expanded upon in a post-rv forum
[Rudie] Domino lol no left to take dogs out! smile carry on
[millionday] aJw70 it made me very happy to see them backed so much by us
[nona] Domino *really
[millionday] nona i would like to share how that went for me
[nona] millionday would love to hear it
[millionday] i prayed and prayed about what God wants me to do with the money and
[millionday] to the point to where i think i got on our Fathers nerves i asked so much and
[aJw70] Yes... when i read that... its like... really... this is gonna happen before i retire
[millionday] finally a voice came to me or an inner voice ---- i have already sent them -- they are all around you --- help the ones i have sent to you ---
[millionday] of course i have told everyone i know and will not be handing out money but ----
[Dovi] millionday your suggestion that we answer requests for considerable money with "I'll have to run it past my ..." that was very helpful
[millionday] that told me not to worry to just keep my eyes open and they will appear -- for me it is the children -- the lump amount will be for the best foster home the world has ever seen -- but
[millionday] i will be giving a hand up and i dont know if everyone has heard what i say but here goes
[Dovi] and my heart is toward Wounded Warriors who are lacking
[millionday] most all of the world -- all people -- spend their entire lives chasing the money they think they need or whatever they do need -- i think this i think that the blessing is not the money -- i think
[millionday] it is the check mark of the money being done --- and now our father God is saying --- now show me who you are and what you can do -- i have blessed you with the freedom to make a huge difference ----- and im watching with love smile
[nona] millionday thank you. yes, i have been led that way as well ("they all all around you"), so have been attempting to devise a way to do that anonymously. i'm a LMSW, so am thinking of setting up a non-profit to channel it through
[letsroll] Right on
[awesomedtl] Very nice!!
[Dovi] along milliondays trend of thought there is a scripture that says "money answereth all things" and its the answers we can bring to people and causes, with wisdom, not the money but its a vehicle to bless
[nona] millionday love that MD and agree - thank you
[dinarmamma] Amen!!! Going to do lots of good works!!!
[Dovi] nona whats LMSW
[nona] Dovi licensed master social worker. my training is primarily in macro - as in non-profit organizations
[millionday] so glad i was able to share it with you --- God will guide you and you will look up in a year and wont believe the person or child you have become ----- live with an open heart
[Dovi] millionday thank you...very wise
[nona] millionday <3 <3 <3
[millionday] but also remember be safe and no one likes a fool -- remember to teach to fish or at least give a pole
[millionday] i am always a child at heart and oh how blessed i feel to be trusted to make a difference here ------ the happiest way to pass from this life is the day you spend your last dime -- remember that
[LBnFL] So what step do you think they are on?
[millionday] It is a little known fact that Iraq is now well on its way to becoming a fully-fledged member of the WTO. Iraq has now advanced to step 3 of the accession process and will most likely complete it without most Iraqis knowing it even happened.
aJw70: Just had to read this again... the proof is in the ink.... and if our government is pushing this... as the main backers. Then... there is nothing left to talk about... except. .... how much?..... because soon is clearly sooner then i thought. I for the longest time felt stabilty was the hold up... as we plainly see... it is not... just saying
tbob: hmmm when I read it I see this;
[millionday] i dont think that is like a one right after the other step -- these are steps that need done but may be done in other order tbob :-)
