Q; [what do u think of the bond sales...the 15th was a date to consider because of the bond sales on that date?]
wmawhite : Inside the USA $1 = $1. Inside Iraq 1 IQD = 1 IQD. A currency only has value when it is compared to another currency. It is not relevant when comparing to itself. Let me ask this: to an Iraqi what changes with the domestic bonds if today the IQD becomes value at 1 IQD = $4.00? What changes inside Iraq with the bonds? Nothing.
Folks, the issue that are solely internal to Iraq has very little to do with what we are waiting on.
The CBI/GOI could sell domestic bonds and receive payment in apples or gold or silver. That has nothing to do with the moving into Article 8 and the acceptance of the international financial community of the IQD.
The bonds have nothing to do with the eventual international exchange rate of the IQD.

Qantas Airlines: Repair Division
In case you need a laugh:
Remember, it takes a college degree to fly a plane but only a high school diploma to fix one.
After every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a 'Gripe Sheet' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft.
The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the Gripe Sheets before the next flight.
Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humour.
Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas' pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.
By the way, Qantas is the only major airline that has never, ever, had an accident.
