for more details on this) we need to start thinking the worst and praying for the best, so we all don't get to disappointed if we don't see this take place this year.
I am not trying to get people down but just the opposite, I am trying to keep everyone grounded so not to give any false hope. I still feel that the target date is July 1st but there must be stability and security in Iraq before the Currency Reform can take place and they are way away from that right now.
The next 2 to 4 weeks are real important to this taking place so we will continue to watch, read, research here at Stryker Blog in hopes of helping everyone that we can to uncover the pieces of the remaining puzzle for as many that care to know the truth.
Oh, and I will continue to Blog as often as I can and report our findings on my WebTV and Blog Talk Radio program as well, in hopes of keeping everyone educating as much as we can.
