Company director talking about fake currencies from public banks.
And central says: security control led to the detention of 1297 suspects of cash
Haidar Ali Jawad -11/08/2011 ad-11: 22, |
The Iraqi Central Bank declared that the control and follow-up security led to the detention of 1297 suspects of domestic and foreign currency, while the director of a company said the company forged local currency came from public banks. He described the first expert at the Central Bank of Iraq. The appearance of Mohamed Saleh, said the arrest of 1297 criminal charges of counterfeit currency of "The good", confirming that this was "evidence of the existence of security control and follow-up and the counterfeit currency and to it."
Saleh said that "the phenomenon of currency forgery is not new, not Iraq, not even other countries of the world, a problem that is found in all countries of the world, including that have developed sophisticated monitoring mechanisms, and even a dollar in very large fraud", indicating that "the crime of fraud in Iraqi law, is considered one of the major crimes punishable by law in Iraq," he said. He added that "there are 3 types of fraud, the first called (bags), namely, the existence of one who has the ability to enable him to Forgery or whether the currency, or global license plate or any other commodity," he said.
He pointed out that " the second type is the (trade), and by groups, companies or dealers for the purposes of profit and speculation in money laundering, this type is by specialized international mafias on trade in counterfeit currency, although Stresses most laws of the world this kind of illegal trade and its follow-up, in an attempt to put an end to their activities and subjected to the law and bring them to justice."
He added that " the third type of fraud is called (intelligence), which is administered by states or governments against other states, and in an attempt to hit their economies, even though it is a kind of wars (dirty), which fears the majority of states to engage in it, because will lead to consequences are not in the interests of all the parties that resort to this kind of war."
Saleh said, "and some of the counterfeit currency the central bank in its dealings" daily, but he returned as "appeared a few to barely mentioned, and we consider it of natural birth, descent is not from now on, but rather it is one of the matters contained in trading since about 50 years ago," he pointed out that " the bank, immediately after receipt of any false paper, to be traced back immediately, to reach the beyond, the law to take its course."
For his part, between legal expert tariq war, that " currency counterfeiting, forgery and counterfeit currency, section of the crime fraud contained in the Iraqi penal law No. 111 of 1969, in which several provisions including articles 280, 281 and 282, , we find that the counterfeit currency very, very up to a life imprisonment, usually could not to reduce the sentence is less than that, especially that the counterfeiting of currency is not by a person at the same time, but involved in the league has always forged, and other seminars on "War” expressed his belief that "the reason for the increasing phenomenon of fraud in recent times, the entry of modern means of digital printing presses and counting, advanced, counterfeiting operations have been limited in the past, owing to the lack of these devices," he said.
He clarified that "places counterfeiting currency in Baghdad, and such as Sadr City and north of Baghdad, that is, the popular areas with a high incidence of printing presses and oversight,", indicating that " the largest fraud took place in Iraq's currency, is the exchange during the rule of Bremer's administration, has been falsified billion, so far, there are issues open for persons accused of Harbin, and others are in prisons supervised by Bank Employees on the replacement process."
In the meantime, said the director of a company, foreign remittances Jamal Al ojaili, that " the counterfeit cash found in the Iraqi market, both local currency or foreign, is strange is that some of them were working normally, it is not possible to easily, as it was in a precise manner."
Al ojaili added to "the world," yesterday, Wednesday, "Recently we have forged currencies of the 10 Thousand dinars exclusively, but in small quantities, enough, we have to hold from the Iraqi Central Bank, the government, to the financial dues for the farmer, the Iraqi market for grain of wheat and barley and corn of the state, included in the money received from public banks the bank, fake currency, but as I mentioned, is not in large quantities," he said.
He explained that "we average between 20 to 30 dinars, or 3 papers in each pack cash, containing 10 million dinars, or 10 in an official stamped from the bank or banks, the official, one of the 10 Thousand dinars."
He noted that " the nature of counterfeit currency in this technical accuracy, and paper, could not be had been rigged inside Iraq, because we don't have such techniques, as well as the fact that everyone here fears and responsibility. The director of the spring Baghdad, stressed that "developed a special section to check currency, and the appointment of 5 staff members their mission is to examine the currency."
He said the director of remittances, speaking of "the world" Yesterday, that "his dealings, of more than one billion dollars a day, and there is no sufficient time to examine it directly when taking over, and for this we are registered in the name of the owner and put it in a separate case, after which are being tested and forged, is given to us on a daily basis, forged currencies are to its owner," he said.
He predicted that "ending the problem at the beginning to replace the current Iraqi currency, following the adjournment of the 3 zeros from it," called on " the Iraqi central bank to print more currency of the present, and that was the last printed in a British company is known, and safety mechanisms and means high, but with the passage of time will be replicated by weak souls."
Joey states: The bad guys apparently have the needed tools, equipment and skills. Every day the banks need to check for forgery. So if they modernize their banks, they might not have as many issues with forgery.
The Problem is over when you start replacing the current old currency with the low denominations that they intend to use long term. The problem will be over when the CBI rolls out the new currency with RV.
Joey: I think that’s a cool article. They have all these reasons that they have to work hard to try to find this problem every day and they still lose a lot of money due to the older worn notes being forged, but if they would just RV, it solves the time and loss problem caused by forgery.
Vic: Reminds that the neighbor next door, Iran, was counterfeiting USD $100 notes back in the day a few years ago.
Patriot: Remember that counterfeiting can be considered an act of war. Some question WMD and Bush’s rights to invade Saddam, but Vic, what happened just prior to the invasion?
Vic: Well Patriot, I don’t want to blame everything on Iran, but when the USA helped establish the Shah of Iran in the early 70’s, they gave him currency grade ink and a machine with technology capable of printing money that did about a $100 Billion of damage to our economy, so again, yes, my finger points straight at Iran. But to answer your question, yes, Saddam wanted to hurt the USD by forming an alliance with Libya to form a Golden Dinar that would replace the Petro Dollar system still in place today for trading oil.
Patriot: Agrees. That was unacceptable, so we’re finding there is more to the story than we knew in 2002. Get The Iraq Project from our website and download it. When you read it, you get clarity about what is going on over there, but you’ll also get hope because you’ll understand or recognize that the news is following the plan.
Joey: Found a Gulf News Opinion from a columnist which gives some historic perspective from inside Iraq.
August 12, 2011 GOING GLOBAL LAKEHOUSE
Iraq seeks to shore up security in a dangerous environment
Many feel US forces may be needed to stabilize a highly volatile situation — both inside the country and in the neighborhood
Iraq was once a proud and powerful Arab country. With its vast oil resources, its great rivers, and its educated middle class, it was in many ways an Arab success story — before things started to go wrong. The last 30 years have been terrible.
Among the gruesome landmarks were first, the eight-year-long life-and-death struggle with the Islamic Republic of Iran, 1980-88, which Iraq managed to survive, but only with great loss of life and material destruction; second, the Gulf War of 1991, when it was forcibly expelled from Kuwait by America and its allies after Saddam Hussein was rash enough to invade his neighbor; third, the 13 years of punitive international sanctions which followed the Kuwait war and which are said to have cost the lives of half a million Iraqi children; and fourth, America’s devastating invasion of 2003 and its long occupation of the country, which is due, at least in principle, to end on December 31 this year.
In its slow and painful recovery from these decades of devastation, Iraq’s dilemma today is that it may still need help from the United States, the power which, more than any other, has destroyed it. This is the background to the current discussions between Baghdad and Washington about a possible extension of America’s military presence in Iraq beyond 2011 — the date set by the 2008 Status of Forces Agreement (Sofa) for a final US evacuation.
There are still some 46,000 American soldiers in Iraq — down from 140,000 a couple of years ago. President Barack Obama has pledged to bring them home — but the Americans are as divided as the Iraqis on the issue. In the US, Democrats have long opposed the war. The Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid declared last month that ‘now is the time for our military mission to come to a close.’ Republicans, in contrast, want America to remain in Iraq — to defend its interests and confront Iran.
Senator John McCain, for example, has argued that there is a ‘compelling case’ for the US to keep at least 13,000 troops in Iraq indefinitely. Opinion is divided in Iraq also. The Kurds desperately want the Americans to stay as guarantors of their fragile semi-independence from Baghdad, while hard-line Shiite factions, notably the Sadrists, who are close to Iran, want to get rid of the Americans altogether, and the sooner the better. In between these two poles are a number of more moderate parties, both Shiite and Sunni, who have no great love for the Americans, and would rather be free of them, but recognize that they may still be needed to stabilize a highly volatile situation — both inside the country and in the surrounding neighborhood.
Iraq’s new-found ‘democracy’, dominated by Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki, is characterized by a great number of parties and splinter groups, all jostling for advantage. This produces a lot of heated talk but not much action — to the extent that a leading Iraqi (consulted for this article) described the Iraqi political scene as resembling that of the French Fourth Republic.
There is a vast amount of rebuilding to be done in Iraq. The 2003 war overthrew Saddam Hussein’s brutal regime, but the horrors which followed have been at least as bad as — and probably a good deal worse than — anything he was guilty of. The US invasion triggered a sectarian war between Sunnis and Shiites which killed tens and possibly hundreds of thousands of people, displaced millions inside the country and sent millions more fleeing as refugees abroad (including much of the Christian community).
It destroyed Iraq as a unitary state by encouraging the emergence of a Kurdish state-let, now linked awkwardly to the rest of the country in a loose federation. It smashed Iraq’s infrastructure to the extent that, in this summer’s heat, with temperatures climbing to over 50 degrees Celsius, the country suffers from crippling power cuts. On average in the south, electricity is on for one hour and off for four. The population is clamoring for better services.
Under Saddam, Iraq was ruled by the Sunni minority, accounting for no more than 20 per cent of the population. The war put the Shiite majority in power. Since the 2008 elections, the country has been governed by a coalition of Shiite groups together with secularists and Kurds, but with Al Maliki’s Shiite bloc very much in control. Al Maliki personally controls the defense and security apparatus.
Al Maliki is close to Iran but he is an Iraqi nationalist, not an Iranian puppet. Whereas he is negotiating to extend the US military presence into 2012, Iran would, on the contrary, like to force the US out of Iraq under duress. Suffering from US sanctions, and under constant threat of attack by Israel, Iran is hitting back against the US by encouraging its Iraqi supporters to attack American troops: 14 were killed in June and another five in July. Baghdad’s Green Zone, home to the American and other embassies, has suffered a growing number of rocket attacks. The internal security situation remains very dangerous.
Iraqis also feel, with some justice, that they are living in a hostile environment. Syria next door is in the throes of a vast popular revolution, savagely repressed by the regime, a highly dangerous situation which could well spill into Iraq. Iraq is also on very poor, even hostile, terms with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Arab world’s Sunni heavyweight, which has been alarmed and angered by the rise of Shiite power in both Iraq and Iran. The Saudis and some of their Gulf neighbors fear the extension of Shiite influence across the Arab world.
In Bahrain, for example, Saudi Arabia recently helped quell a revolt by the Shiite community – a community which has traditionally been close to Iraq. This, too, has damaged Saudi-Iraqi relations. Iraq is also quarrelling with Kuwait over the latter’s plan to build a mega-port on the island of Bubiyan, which could have an impact on the Shatt Al Arab waterway, Iraq’s sole outlet to the sea. Iraq is sending a commission of experts to Kuwait to assess the project. Some Iraqi parliamentarians have also accused Kuwait of stealing Iraqi oil by slant drilling into Iraqi territory. These are highly sensitive issues. They are precisely the ones Saddam Hussein invoked for invading Kuwait in 1990.
For all these reasons, Iraq feels that it needs to beef up its armed services, rebuild its air force and navy, as well as its ground troops, so as to be able to protect its borders and its oil platforms, as well as stabilize the situation in cities like Kirkuk and Mosul where ethnic and sectarian tensions remain high. All things considered, it does not look as if America’s involvement with Iraq — which has proved catastrophic for both countries – will be ended soon.
Joey: The people have been through a lot haven’t they?

Joey made some comments throughout while reading: They were talking about the first reading, and what they actually went into with the article was more about Allawi, the Strategic Policies and the mechanism for the selection of the speaker, Allawi; and the Government of President of Kurd region, and that he had voted for Allawi. It was unusual how it went into things we were talking about with the HCL, displaced people, returning dead bodies in mass graves, women in ministerial positions, human rights, and it was bizarre how this just went all over the place with many distinct issues. I’m thinking as I read this, where is this article going? And why are they lumping these separate issues into one article? ….then they went back and talked about the Tariff that we know was supposed to have been imposed on July 1, but then delayed till July 16th. It was talking about all the things bound up in Chapter 7 sanctions. I thought I was going to be reading something about the draft law by the title of this and the way it started, but it wasn’t. It was about Sanctions. I thought I was reading The Future of Iraq Project …. It wraps everything up together and then ties it back to Talabani’s home meetings. Interesting how it brought different issues together in one article.
Steve: I know sometimes things get lost in translation. That just sounds like a summary of all things accomplished since July 1st, but doesn’t articulate it in a manner in which we would be thinking or expecting.
Joey: yea, a confirmation of everything we’ve been discussing, and wondering about. There was so much meat in this article, but not so easy to break down and digest.
Steve: They really are working on a lot of things. It seemed they had been working on things behind the scenes, or without us knowing, and then all the sudden this past 2 months have been giant strides of progress summarizing all the steps taken one at a time of various issues that have happened this past 6 weeks.
Joey: Another article I was reading today, talked about the HCL and it came right out and expressed how it had to be passed, but it has already passed, and we know that it has been passed. And another was out about the Strategic Policy and how they’ve picked out a couple more people for ministers, which we know are all in place now. But what I thought was really interesting in an article today about the ministers; If you lookup Defense Minister of Iraq on Wikipedia, it will tell you all the things that define that position duties, AF, Army, Internal Security, Police, and a long list of departments and groups, and it will also tell you that one of the key responsibilities is The Intelligence!
Joey continues paraphrasing key points from several articles read today but titles are not named:
Also today, they were talking about sending some more names for ministers to Maliki for the Security Position to vote on in Parliament. And that the Intelligence will be resolved after the Defense and Security positions have been decided. Well, it’s hard to vote on the Intelligence when it’s included in the Defense which we know has been decided and have discussed at length the past few days, about Mr. Obeidi. And I thought they’re always just throwing something out there, another diversionary tactic… they say like now we need this or we need that or now we need an Intelligence Minister…know you don’t, you’ve got Obeidi! C’mon, keep up with us, here!
Iraq Parties work to settle issue of security ministries
Thursday, August 11, 2011 11:08 GMT
Iraqi political parties are keen on deciding about the security ministries. State of Law Coalition is working to alleviate the heavy mission of Prime Minister Nuri Al Maliki who is serving as the acting minister of Defense and Interior for months.
Al Iraqiya has agreed to present three new candidates and asks Maliki to choose one of them. Al Iraqiya says it does not object National Alliance candidates for the Interior Ministry, a source told Alsumaria.
Al Sadr Front meanwhile still has reservations on some of Al Iraqiya’s candidates.
Al Sadr Party affirmed that it is looking to resolve this issue within the coming weeks for several considerations mainly the advent of US Forces withdrawal from Iraq.
Kurdistan Alliance on other hand rules out any agreement soon on security ministries.
Steve: We see so much coming up about ministries and weird articles that pop up saying things are not decided or needs to be done, when we know it is not true. False information is cycled.
Joey agreeing: Yea, I read another article today that they came out and told a bold faced lie, listen
Joey reads: Parliament forms committee to oversee implementation of Article 140
Erbil, Aug. 11 (AKnews) – Parliament voted by a majority today to form a committee to oversee the application of article 140 of the Iraqi constitution to resolve territorial disputes in a number of multi-ethnic areas.
The article aims at ending the long dispute between Baghdad and the northern semi-autonomous enclave of Kurdistan over the tenure of oil-rich Kirkuk, and parts of Nineveh, Salahaddin and Diyala provinces.
KBC deputy Shuwan Mohammed told AKnews the new committee will initially include 38 lawmakers; seven of them Kurds and the rest from the other Iraqi political blocs, but this number may increased at a later date.
According to Mohammed, the new council will monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the article – originally scheduled to be implemented in 2007 - and will operate under the auspices of the Council of Ministers.
The article sets three stages for the settling of the tenure debate.
Firstly, the original inhabitants of the disputed areas - forced to leave under the former regime’s demography-altering ‘Arabization’ policies – must be returned and compensated.
The second stage is the conducting of a population census, followed by the final stage, a referendum in which the residents can decide whether they would like to join Kurdistan or remain with Baghdad.
Four years after the constitutional deadline for the article, the government has not yet completed the first phase.
By Fryad Mohammed http://www.aknews.com/en/aknews/4/256459/
Joey comments as reading: Kind of hard to monitor article 140 when it’s not passed yet. The first phase, remember was that they have to compensate them who were forced out of Iraq. The line where they say they hadn’t completed the first phase? LIES! Lies!. Anybody that wants to come back to Iraq is being sent money, plane or bus tickets, they are being facilitated fully to help them come home. 130,000 families have been returned to Iraq already. Whatever it takes, they are guaranteed land, homes, and jobs. Then the article talk about needing a census to be completed? We know that is done from the UN meeting read by Melkert and Patriot plays it over and over like a broken record. This article is a total complete lie and fabrication.
Steve: As we come to the latter days of expectation of the RV, they are using a lot of smoke and mirrors. We have close to 3,000 people on this call, but imagine the many thousands of people not on this call that will pick up this article without such certain awareness of progresses completed, and they’ll believe parts of that fabrication, thinking nothing got done; and may think there will be another 6 months till the RV time so they won’t be urgent to buy dinar. The way the news comes out, we just have to follow it and try to keep up with the process.
Deb: states she and Joey were talking today how confusing today has been reading and sifting…its been hard today with all the diversion smoke and mirrors articles, we have to be very attentive.
Joey: All of that was done a long time ago. Remember the Emir of Jordan who sat up a hotline to Maliki’s office that there were 911 calls to help the Iraqi refugees living in Jordan? How many times has Patriot rewound and replayed Melkert saying ‘…the domestic portion of the census…’?
Yukon: Asks for it again, and Patriot needs no other encouragement to comply, stating he’ll be right back, jumping at the chance to cue up his Melkert one-liner.
Joey continues the disgusting ‘diversion’ tirade: Just yesterday they voted unanimously for the HCL, how is it possible that it’s not done if it was voted unanimous? Back in March on the 15th, Obeidi was approved as Defense Minister, we just printed it again yesterday and read it on the call yesterday, how can they still be talking about waiting until the Defense Minister is decided? Similarly, they talk about the Tariff law but we know the dates of deadline for Tariff implementation was July 1, but that was extended till July 16th, and now they’re circling back to that again? The Census needs to be done? Have you ever heard of Pinnochio? You guys lie a lot! C’mon already!
Patriot jokes facetiously: Yes, we have, but we will not inform you on which forum he is working tonight.
Deb & Joey laughing!
Patriot calls out: Joey, your cheeseburger is ready and up!
Patriot plays recording of Melkert’s UN statement at 12 minutes and 42 seconds of the 42 minute reading on July 19th about Census completion: “…Noteworthy in this context is the essential support of the SPA for the successful completion of the dwelling and household parts of the census.”
Patriot: The SPA is the UN’s branch of Special Population Audit. We know there are about 7 Billion people on the planet because they count them, like they did here in Iraq. There it is, proof the census is done.
Joey reminds: That the census was done on the 11th of June, and the count went all the way down to the 466th person. There were no approximates in their 31 and a half million people. It was too exact. And they were commended for getting that task done early so they could calculate payments from oil revenue for the people. There were a couple other articles that came out stating the Census would begin at the end of this year, and yet they had it completed to the last person on June 11th. You know, lots of Red Herrings out there, they must be selling well these days….as we approach an ultimate timing of events!
Patriot mentions: Now there was an article talking about some of the additional parts of the census that includes the specific details or demographic information like education or profession collected about each person may still be in process of analysis or summary, but the head count of people part of the census is completed for allocating resources of oil revenue. Also, they needed to know how to apply percentages of Iraqi people required to be hired on any given contract as they begin reconstruction, so knowing skill levels and expertise, or qualifications was important for determining what percentages to build into government contract requirements. But as it relates to HCL and Erbil, the census is done and that’s just smart resource management of those statistics.
Joey: So we’re trying to tell you that you need a shovel to find the truth.
Patriot agrees: and Joey you’ve mentioned many times we don’t find out the truth or complete picture of a story in one story, but in overlapping stories over a timeline. Reporters make mistakes as they rush for print deadlines. Like when we learned a lot of Sanctions were released other than just a few that remained.
Joey: It’s very hard every night to bring truth to listeners. All we can do is try our best to take what we have and evaluate, against the archives we have tried to keep. Like that article that Diana read last night about the Geology Assay that was completed. In that article it said one little statement that we have to pick up on…it said: That Iraq had been kept out of the International Community for so long because of sanctions, but NOW IT IS A PART OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY …”
Patriot: Exactly which is a code word, or an inference to the fact that Chapter 7 Sanctions that have been lifted, and of course Ban Ki Moon, the Secretary General of the UN on June 30th at noon announced FROM THE UNITED NATIONS PULPIT in front of the Iraqi Delegation of leaders and dignitaries… announced to the world that it was a Historical Day; that Iraq was a sovereign nation and could trade with whomever they choose. Of course the mechanism of Global Trade is the WTO, and we believe that mechanism is what prevented them from trade; it was the sanctions and therefore, with that announcement by the UN, put in those words, we believe that was the proof the sanctions have been lifted. Of course, followed closely by the release of the DFI funds that was about a Quarter Trillion USD from years of oil sales they had just gained access to…because the sanctions were lifted! People say, well how can they be functioning without opening their budget? They got their DFI funds on July 1st and they’re doing OK especially with the ongoing oil revenue from sales. In Saddam’s era, that oil revenue went to palaces or whatever he was into, but not to the people like it is being directed now. That’s why that is all significant. And Joey has about 2500 pages of archived news and reports, as well as some alien brainpower filing system for storing intricate details that she recalls regularly to compare to the daily breaking news and finds those little one line phrases or statements that makes the differences in our understanding and confidence that the RV is eminent and sooner than later.
Joey laughs at aliens liking pizza and asks: Regarding sanctions, Patriot, how is it that Iraq can be under sanctions if the UN gave them permission to own their own Nuclear Power? They have the right to have nuclear power as an alternative or diverse method to make energy in addition to oil. How is it that they can go out and buy 36 F-16 US Fighter Jets? How did they contract for those if they’re under sanctions and therefore not able to control their own airspace? The sanctions have been lifted….
Vic bursts in excitedly: Oh, Joey, I can’t believe how well you just set me up for an amazing article I’ve just found and was reading today…listen to this about what you just said and Patriot said yesterday about Uranium. This is incredible!

Iran signs agreement to aid Iraq with nuclear power
11/08/2011 16:51 Baghdad, August 11 (AKnews) –
Iran signs agreement to aid Iraq with nuclear power
Iran will aid Iraq in the development of a peaceful nuclear program, according to a memorandum of understanding signed today.
The Iraqi technology minister Ayad Samarrie signed the document with the Iranian ambassador Hasan Danayi today in Baghdad. The agreement sets the ground for the joint development of research centers.
Samarrayi told reporters: "Iraq has begun talks over the possibility of investing in peaceful nuclear power.
“We have had talks with the Iranian ambassador about the possibility of Iraq stating to seriously invest in it, particularly since there is a resolution by the Iraqi Council of Ministers to rehabilitate the Iraqi Nuclear Energy Commission."Iraq, like any other country has the right to use all peaceful means to provide its own energy," the Iraqi minister said.

Patriot repeats from article last line: “They have the right?” ...under sanctions there is no right, and Iraq had the strictest sanctions ever placed on a country in the history of the world.
Vic adds: What’s more important about this article and brings so much light about this community. Iran pretty much has to open it’s doors to allow the US and UN to come in and inspect Iran’s Nuclear Program in order to approve them working with Iraq’s Nuclear Energy Commission. See how important this is and see how smart the US really is?
Patriot: …and not only that, but see how smart the Iranians have become to see that they can continue to be the bad guy on the block but there’s not much profit in that; or they can recognize that the new wealth of Iraq could be something Iraq would pay for this nuclear knowledge. Iran can see the potential for getting some soon to be valuable Iraqi Dinar coming into their country. It’s all good news, right Vic?
Vic: So the big news is not only watching what’s going on in Iraq, but this opens the door to see into Iran also.
Patriot totally agrees: …good so a lot of the bravado and saber rattling we’ve been hearing for years from Iran, and the fears that the Mid East is destabilizing and going to hell in a hand basket, may not be so true. We just read that Iraq, Iran, and Turkey just signed a new gas and oil pipeline deal within the past couple weeks. You don’t go to war with a nation in whom you have an economic interest. You don’t go burn down your neighbor’s home, if you share a duplex with him!
Vic & Joey: Very good point, true statement!
Vic: Just another day of beautiful news articles, folks.
Patriot: Encourages all that we believe it is very close, very eminent, and all should read The Iraq Project to Download from our site.
Steve reads Q from Jennifer’s email: …question about special electricity availability for banks to be efficient and could this be an obstacle for RV?
Patriot: Very astute question. We’ve seen some articles. Yes, the power is intermittent to the citizens. Industry is growing in Iraq by people putting gas generators in the back of a truck and selling power to people or businesses to help them get thru the busy or hot times of day; and yes, we’ve seen the ATM distribution of currency preparations are being hampered by the low availability of electricity. We’ve seen articles with citizens that security of those ATMs are being placed in high traffic areas like malls, and that those machines will be important for distribution of the lower denoms.
Tim asks: Do you remember about 6 months ago they ordered a lot of road tractors that they took out the axles and intended to use the Power Take Off hydraulic could be attached to dive generators for supporting the weak power grids?
Joey: reminds they shipped 1500 Freight Liner Semi Trucks over there also.
Tim: Yea, that’s the article I’m talking about.
Patriot: agrees but also thinks some of them were for work to be used in country and at the Port.
Joey: specifically remembers reading that people would sleep or live in the sleeper cab of those big trucks to monitor the electricity generation assignments.
Vic: We have spent a lot of many, in the billions to provide AC to our military troops
Scott & Joey: remember that article and agrees it was a great article.
Steve reads email from Emily: I’m listening to the call. One of my purchases did not come with anything but a receipt, not affidavit. Is not having a receipt for her dinar purchase going to be a problem? (transcript of this question may be mistaken)
Patriot: Says don’t worry about it.
Steve: suggests people email their questions to: Questions@thecallsquad.com
