_ 9:51 AM [BGG] [BGG] Samepredictionfrom yesterday......[BGG] Just me (and several high powered contacts) but Idon't think there is any way possible anything will get done till PM Maliki hasgotten back to Iraq for at least 24 hrs. While this is just as wild aprediction as any other you have heard - I bet I'm right
9:53 AM [BGG] Did you guys just see the trashing Maliki just took on Fox??
9:53 AM [A.Q]http://www.cnn.com/2011/ ··· dex.html
9:53 AM [A.Q] look m own govet against him
9:54 AM [A.Q] watch the video of mutlag with cnn reporter
9:54 AM [BGG]Wow!! They just accused him of attempting to create a "one-sided" dictatorship.
9:56 AM [A.Q] YES!! his ownparliment!!
9:56 AM [BGG] His Deputy PM did the accusing (that is), but the fact that it was picked up by the Int'l media is significant. Could be that the "big players" are getting sick of theshenanigans too?

11:06 AM [BGG]EHL had very goodreasons for postulating that Maliki was intended to come here with an RV"in his pocket" - while I don't like the fluid nature of things asmuch as anyone else....I can tell you there was a last-minute shift of events that leaves us here for the moment.
11:10 AM [BGG] From last Friday on -exactly as I have already said.'
11:16 AM [BGG] This could happen as soon as Maliki gets back - since he has to make nice with his compadres(still)..or it might be a little while.
11:17 AM [BGG] It is encouraging that the Int'l media is picking up on the "mini-dictator" thing - might be just the boost we need to get Maliki to get things done (as in implementing theErbil).
11:18 AM [BGG] That last part was purely my speculation based on the news.
11:18 AM[justgeorge] BGG agreeing on interior minister is a sign of things to come(erbil implementation) IMO
11:18 AM [BGG] justgeorge - and yes,exactly (since they will fold both Security and Interior Ministries together).
11:19 AM [BGG]That is projected to happen as soon as Maliki shows back up in Baghdad.
11:22 AM [wmawhite] I am going topost some accurate and documented info from Joey: Joey
summarized theNews discussed tonight: Its all about the article from May 28 we have read somany times...what we have been watching for is happening now..
"When thetroops withdrawal is done, you will get your ministers and Erbil". We havebeen building up to these days for a long time...
The Iraqi people for 9 yearsand now these are the historic days we have been waiting for.We saw Malikicoming to the US to meet with our President Zebari...the trade and financeminister was with him and what did he go there for...prrotection of the DFIFunds that have been Iraqs since June 30th went there to talk about Troopwithdrawal and security of his country and to be released from Chapter7.....
then tonight we read an article that KJ sent us that tells us the entiretime that chapter 7 was part of the SFA agreement Mr Obama signed off onthat...we know he did....because they have now signed a brand new SFA agreement- they did it in closed sessions at 9:45 Monday morning
They have entered abrand new Strategic Framework Agreement.Today Maliki metwith Christine Lagarde, World Bank, Chamber of Commerce, 250 business men Iraqofficials to sign very lucrative trade agreements in their country
We talkedabout and article about the Quality of food coming into Iraq because there areno custom tax and tariff laws to protect the people from the quality andquantity that comes into the ports
As we see these tax and tariff lawsimplement it will be with the approval of the WTO because they are about tobecome a Member nation of that country. MrNajafi...saying this week will witness new initiative - a new meeting at homeof Talabani 9 laws will be passed ...one of them just might the HCL law...other thing they are looking at...
Looking at Erbil and by the way it allcoincides with the return of Maliki from Washington and when the Trade Ministergets back Everybody gets a new card..said it was a ration card..when you readthe article I think it is the smart card that we have been waiting on.
And the US Troopswithdrawal is done..tomorrow our Our President literally brings this war toan end They told us we sure hope they are going to pull the troops soon and wethink we are going to have out by Dec 15th tomorrow is Dec 14 and our Presidentis addressing our troops and thanking them for a job well done.
Then and Articlecame out today about the Central Bank of Iraq meeting today with a group ofspecialist talked about the need to RV their currency And when you look at allof this..you start to see all the smoke and mirrors articles that came outand you know how close we really are
Be solid and build the foundation you needbased on the news and facts we have presented over the last year..listen tothis call to have the foundation you need to know where we are today. That's it folks
