The order in which this should go down and why:
Passage of the stalled laws as they call them in order of importance:
Oil & Gas Law, also known as the HCL (hydrocarbon law)
The most important law Iraq has, it mostly includes the provincial percentages that each province gets paid per year. It includes how contractors are paid and the citizen’s entitlements of 25% of each year’s surpluses is a part of this.
Also remember that this is the month that these entitlements are to be distributed and this can’t take place until it is signed sealed and delivered IMO. The currency reform numbers will be a big part of this and should be included and accounted for within the framework of this law as it is their biggest asset.

Accountability & Justice Law and the Amnesty Law
The two demands of the demonstrators and what will get them off the streets. You can’t introduce to the world your brand new currency when you have demonstrations and all the sectarian blood shed that is now a daily part of these. BTW, the HCL will help this immensely.
Federal Court Act & Baath Party Law or Baathification Law as it is also known
The Federal Court Act was passed by parliament earlier this year, which bans the head of the Federal Supreme Court from also being the chief justice of the Judicial Council. This new law made the head of the Court of Cassation (which ratifies the rulings of Iraqi judges and has final say in such matters) the new chief justice.
The Federal Supreme Court rules on issues related to federalism and constitutionality.
Remember that Maliki had one of these Judges in his back pocket, well that Judge was Chief Justice Midhat al-Mahmoud, the chief justice that lost his position because of this new law and was removed to his old job, head of the Federal Supreme Court. This took away Maliki’s ability to get arrest warrants on anyone that stood to defy him.
This dude Mahmoud is bad news folks and they say he was also removed under this new law because of his involvement in the Baath Party under Saddam wherein he was directly involved when 10,000 Iraqi’s were killed and other anti-humanitarian acts.
Back in 2004 when Paul Bremer was the administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority of Iraq, he was responsible for the law that banned the Iraq Baath Party members of being able to hold jobs with the government of Iraq. Now this ties right into this next Law that needs passed.
Accountability and Justice
Now here is another interesting snippet of news, the National Commission for Accountability and Justice overlooks the implementation of the de-Baathification in Iraq. Can you see how all this is tied in together and how it takes power directly away from Maliki?
This is why it is so important and why I believe Barzani
now feels that Maliki will comply with all that is needed, because all these laws are part of completing the overall framework of their agreement. Maliki has no choice, his powers have been reduced and Barzani and the speaker of the House of Parliament Najafi know this and that is why they are all getting along now.
And this is another reason we have read that they wanted to pass them as a basket of Laws but others say they need to stand on their own merit. We don’t care how they get done but they need done for this reason:
When currency speculators that will be buying the dinar at the time that it is introduced to them through the international currency exchange they want to see the management team of Iraq in harmony, not in disarray like it has been up until now. All further signs that things are moving in the right direction.
Pass the laws and arrange the last of their debt issues and we will see Currency Reform my friends. They have said that they have 15 days to accomplish this as of yesterday and I have a real warm and fuzzy feeling it will be done.
I will write about their debt and why I believe it must be accomplished before they can really have their assets to back the upcoming currency reform.
We don’t need intel or boots on the ground, we just need to stick to the facts.
The truth will bring us home! Have a great day, Stryker
