9-9-2012 LoriC: Great news this morning!! Ministers have been submitted for approval, smart cards are going to be introduced and Maliki is being forced to implement the reforms before anyone will even think about having a National Meeting and if he doesn't they are going to withdraw the confidence from him. That pressure is great news for us and with Talabani returning soon this all could fall into place early next week, possibly as soon as tomorrow.
9-9-2012 Mountainman: Great news today about the Defense Minister getting picked tomorrow, Erbil will be passed and a NC held. If this happens it's great news for the GOI and all of us.
There are many rumors that a big change is coming with the global monetary system and that the IQD is involved. At this point it seems we have a convergence between articles and rumors both showing progress and pointing to this being over in the near future and before the end of 2012 for sure. This is great news for us all imho.

So, how can they hold off much longer? Watch the slide show until the 25k note comes up and read the caption. http://www.iraqfinance.co.uk/ " Planning To Remove The Zeros" 25,000 Iraqi Dinar
25,000 Iraqi Dinar issued by Central Bank of Iraq; the bank is planning to remove 000’s.
9-9-2012 BGG: I find it most encouraging that our US delegation went from here to Iraq, then directly on to Germany to meet with Talibani. They are most interested in getting this moved on down the road.
I am also hearing the current Administration is uncomfortable with this current scenario and them getting hit with the blow-back. It is exposing their foreign policy bumblings.
The bad news is if anything will derail this thing at the last minute, it's this Al-Hashemi conviction and sentencing. Maliki knows this, and he's working his "poker buddies" over on the Federal Courts Bench.
They might keep Al-Hashemi safe and while they give Maliki a little of his own medicine? It is my personal opinion Maliki just convicted himself.
Of note, this will be a very big story for a while. Also of note, Interpol won't touch this stupid warrant due to it's highly suspicious political "stench."
9-9-2012 TrinityeXchange: "The U.S. delegation stressed U.S. support for the Iraqi people in order to problem-solving current and dismantle all the crises that stand in the progress and development of Iraq, wishing the success of all efforts, including the great efforts made by President Talabani."
This is exactly what they did with their "private" meeting with maliki. The United States delegation just opened up the freeway for Talabani to drive through and complete the implementation of the agreements. We are looking at some good days ahead my friends. Some very good days.
