TWEET @THE_TNT_TEAM - UPDATE: Received reports of cards in "some" areas funded at 3.71, folks happy, progress in the making. I report-U decide.
Uenvoy: Good Morning TNT friends. Are we excited still?
I was lurking and saw a question about currency changes in Iraq, and shouldn't it go all at the same time? Yes normally it would, each country has their own laws pertaining to their countries currency,\
They also have to go buy the international rules if they are internationally traded.
So could it go in one area of a country and not the other, yes if they are in country exchanges, or laws that pertain to that issue. I use to have the rules and laws pertaining to Iraq, but I cant find them.
I will keep looking for them and then post it here for those eyes that want to know.
I think they were doing it in the secured areas first then once they had control of the other areas, they would release it to them. It is to keep ISIS and Daash from getting monies to support Terrorism.
Uenvoy: So if they are releasing in these areas, that are all secure and free from ISIS then I can see it being done .. and $3.71 per dinar is awesome that looks like the 20% increase has been added.
but that also looks like a international rate, so that means they can purchase anywhere in the world. If they have the card and it is loaded
The only thing is it is not showing on any of the forex sites, or exchange sites. that is what is confussing. It should go world wide all at the sametime ...
And if it is not international, then it wouldn't show yet. but the report said international didn't it?
Hitdoc: Im looking for it to go Live late tonight or tomorrow some time...JMO.......
Uenvoy: Hitdoc>> I hope it does cause that would be the release internationally…But it might take 7-10 days to complete the international release. or by Tuesday….. so if this is true, and they released incountry , then we should be looking from now to Tuesday. or Next week sometime. but we have been here before so many times. So we will just have to wait and see if it omes to fruition. Lets hope it goes this time
Billnmass: I do think it is possible for this to bounce around Iraq for a short period.....but if this is really happening it will have to come our way very soon
UKfan1972: News outlets are stating that Sanctions placed on Iran may be lifted by Friday. These actions will allow access to billions of funds that were frozen. I see this as a good sign for Iraq because it's hard to believe that these governments invested so much in Iraq, but would allow Iran to become the new darling of the region.
Mangelo: remember they did the outline part of the countries first...then now it it in the city of Baghdad...the final stages
Maggiemoo: If it's done in Iraq & sanctions lift tonight in Iran,,we won't be waiting til next week
JerseyBoys Faninmn: On “Word on the Street” this morning when DC New York was doing the recap... she mentioned that other countries are depegging from the US dollar. She also mentioned that altho the US is trying to make it look like all is well, it definitely isn't. This is gonna happen, folks. Be encouraged!!!!!!!
SassyD: A Cherokee Legend..... (1) An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued,
"The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

Iran Expects EU to Lift Sanctions Right After Nuclear Deal Implementation
Walkingstick: Iran Says It Has Removed Core of Reactor, Key to Nuke Deal
By NASSER KARIMI, ASSOCIATED PRESS TEHRAN, Iran — Jan 14, 2016, 10:01 AM ET
Nuclear technicians have finished removing the core of the Iran's only nuclear heavy water reactor as part of Tehran's obligations under its nuclear deal with world powers, Iranian state television reported Thursday.
The removal of the core of the nearly completed Arak reactor is a key step before crippling international sanctions on Iran are lifted. The work must still be verified by outside experts.
Under the deal reached last summer, the heavy-water reactor is to be re-engineered so that it produces only minute amounts of plutonium, like enriched uranium a potential pathway to nuclear arms. That involves exchanging the core and other major modifications.
The spokesman for Iran's atomic department, Behrouz Kamalvandi, announced the completion of the work on the Arak reactor on Thursday.
"About an hour age, our job was finished," he said. State TV reported that the holes left after the core was removed have been filled with concrete.
International inspectors will now verify the job and will send their report to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Kamalvandi said.
The core itself would be kept as a symbol of Iran's nuclear achievements, he added.
Under the deal, reached last July, Iran was required to ship out most of its stockpile of enriched uranium, a material that can be used to make bombs, and take apart thousands of the centrifuges that enrich the material. It also had to redesign Arak, rendering it incapable from producing weapons-grade plutonium under normal operation. Most of the nuclear restrictions last 10 or 15 years.
While Iran accomplished all of the biggest tasks in recent weeks, several technical issues remained. Officials had spoken of lingering questions related to Iran's uranium and plutonium programs, including over the properties of certain centrifuges Iran would be permitted to maintain for research purposes.
Iran has insisted it needs the Arak heavy water reactor for production of medical isotopes. It denies it had any intention to build nuclear weapons.
Iran's Fars news agency, which is close to the country's hard-liners, on Monday reported that technicians had already dismantled the core of the Arak reactor and filled it with concrete.
Deputy nuclear chief Ali Asghar Zarean denied that report a day later, saying that Iran "will not apply any physical change in this field until a final agreement is finalized."
Iranian hard-liners are opposed to the nuclear deal. They argue that the so-called "disabling" of Arak is a slap Iran's face and see it as evidence that moderate President Hassan Rouhani has made too many concessions to the West.
On Wednesday, U.S. officials said Iran could comply with last summer's nuclear deal as early as Friday, requiring the United States and other nations to immediately suspend billions of dollars' worth of economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
In Vienna, a senior diplomat from one of the six countries that cut the deal with Iran said Wednesday that it would be formally declared implemented — most probably on Friday. The official and diplomat spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
Zarean, the Iranian deputy nuclear chief, also said Tuesday that once modifications at the plant are done are done and Arak goes online, Iran hopes to export excess heavy water produced there to the U.S. through a third country, for uses in research. He added that Savannah River National Laboratory near Jackson, South Carolina, has recently certified high purity of heavy water produced by Iran.
Iran is still expected to produce some 20 metric tons (22 tons) of heavy water at Arak a year. It has said it would domestically consume about 6 tons for medical isotopes and is looking to export the rest.
