"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." -Teddy Roosevelt

10-23-12 Mountainman: The UNSC has no reason to keep Iraq under Chp 7 any longer. Kuwait and Iraq agreed on a financial settlement and the compensation law was even published into the gazette. So, it's absolutely official.
Now all that is left is for the UNSC to release them and if they don't, that tells us there must be some secret stipulations such as having an internationally recognized currency. Either way, we are one step closer and this is clear evidence that Iraq is moving forward and making progress on an international level.
The urgency to resolve the dispute with Kuwait, comply with the United Nations and the power struggle in the GOI to appoint someone who has control over the CBI all tells us we are close to seeing something happen.
Also, this Saturday the Committee of Five will submit a final HCL draft to parliament for approval finally. The United States announced they are building the largest embassy in Erbil to protect their investment in my opinion and it's no coincidence that just today Iraq adopted a new version of article 28 of the law on banks by the CBI to facilitate investing in banks, develop the banking system and allows banks to invest directly.
The atmosphere has definitely changed from this time last year, or the last 3 years and I can't wait to see what happens next!!
Bob (Dinar Alert): Monday News - We begin another week looking at the Central Bank. Various economists, parliament members are now speaking out and coming to the support of Dr. Shabibi.
1.) Integrity Committee: Shabibi victim attempts to acquire Central Bank.
2.) Economy Parliamentary Committee warns of impact of Shabibi issue on the reputation of the Iraqi dinar internationally.
3.) Financial and economic expert's (range): This is the wrong way to address the problem of the central bank.
4.) Hindawi criticizes describes Russian arms deal and dismiss Shabibi "threat to the Iraqi economy."
5.) Several meetings between President Jalal Talabani and political blocs to discuss national meeting
. 6.) Finance parliamentary reveal Iraqi politicians involved money laundering.
10-23-12 Gambler1: If we are to believe more than one currency will RV--then that includes the Chinese Yuan. The concept is that some countries’ currencies do not really reflect their intrinsic value.
One of those is China. So, politicians saying China holds the value of its Yuan down is exactly what we as investors in dong and dinar have been saying--that these currencies have to rise in value to truly reflect the assets and potential wealth of those countries. So, hearing that from the politicians last night fits right into our thinking.
Zigmeister: I really doubt Shabs is guilty of anything. However he is the one who ran the show. I have no doubt there was some corruption in the bank. Three or four years ago Shabs brought it to Maliki's attention. As I understand it Malki kind of shrugged his shoulders on that. I guess he had better things to do, irritate the kurds and piss people off.

I went to bed thinking last night, Something's not right with all of this. Why wouldn't Maliki have waited until Shabibi returned home to Baghdad to issue these warrants, if in case Shabs was manipulating the currency. WE all ready know the integrity commision came out yesterday and said they found no evidence of wrong doing from Shabibi.
Supposedly, Selah was one of the employees charged, then Maliki comes out with news that he could be a possible candidate to replace Shabibi. I know I'll probably get bashed for this, but I'm thinking this whole scenario is a ruse.
There is just too much conflicting news coming out of Iraq. What better way to disway speculation, than to discredit, then set up a take down scenario on the CBI. Could not the security forces surrounding the CBI be there for security and not arrests. Maybe, like gregp said, "We gonna see a RV" JMO

Goldiegirl: I agree with you 100%. I haven't been commenting on all of this much because frankly I don't believe any it. I'm not living with rose colored glasses. My gut is telling me this is all BS because as you have stated, it just doesn't add up.
With all that Shabibi has been in his career, there is no way he's "going out in style" as a criminal. He's too highly respected from the previous positions he has held with those organizations to ruin his reputation and I don't believe he needs to steal the money. I am sure he is more than wealthy.
Remember, Maliki owns all the news broadcasting stations and newspapers. He can say whatever he wants.
I feel Shabibi is hiding because he's not a good liar. He's an honest man who loves his country and his people. Get him out of the country while all this stuff is flying around, so he doesn't have to answer to this...
The only good thing about all of this is that there is definitely something shaking up....our RV? Who knows. BTW...I always enjoy your posts. You have great common sense
