tman23 There are 2 types of news in Iraq... The news we get from press releases and then the news on the streets which is only for Iraqi's... And inside Iraq they are trying to hold it together with more talk...
But the reality is, it is about to explode internally if they do not come up with immediate solutions...and those solutions require money... LOTS OF MONEY!!!
Q: [Is it True Iraq has 60 days to RV?]
BGG not exactly - the WB [World Bank] has given Iraq 60 days to deal with their money laundering issue...which should, at some point shortly after they do - open the door for a very different regime... (more PRO-currency reform) - short answer...it is far more possible once they satisfy the WB.

Bonshoom: Iko Ward: Official Forex site has been at 1129.2 all night, but I like that secondary platforms are running tests on more favorable rates. More confirmation of all the intel we are getting. They may also have access to back room Forex thinking that can't be published on their main site. One thing to add to Isa's intel, seems they were testing when Iraq opens for business. Gitter dun.
Bonshoom: Iko Ward: Yes, every little thing points to this happening. Just hope it's Friday Night. That would jive with a weekend role out and Aug. 1 deadlines, etc. Isa please monitor this each night and see if it repeats. I can't subscribe ti their site due to security measures (new computer, new emails, etc.)

Jdtolle: » July 29th, 2015, Work past the disappointments
Don’t dwell endlessly on what’s wrong. Do something positive, and change your momentum.
When things are tough and life is unfair, the least effective strategy is to complain about it. The most effective strategy is to get busy.
You’re better than the problems. The way to prove that to yourself and to the world is with your actions.
You deserve to feel like you’re on top of the world, so give yourself what you deserve. Embrace the effort, persist through the challenges, and experience the satisfaction of making a real difference.
Treat every situation as an opportunity for positive and meaningful work. Seize the treasure in every moment by doing something useful with the moment.
Delight your senses and your sense of purpose by jumping into action. Work your way past the disappointments, and up to a whole new level of fulfillment.
