9-23-2012 Mike: What we are waiting on next [is] to see the date of the National Meeting and see if we can get the rest of these reforms passed; biggest hump in the road for the National Meeting is going to be Allawi and his power sharing and seeing where that goes.
I think what you have here is Maliki attempting to back door him and bust up the coalition by dealing with the 140 - great for us - we will take it - We will take it but eventually he is going to have to deal with Allawi. Eventually he is going to have to give up a chunk of his power and that is when he is going to be eventually done and eventually he will drop out of the politics of Iraq.

9-23-2012 Labdog (Dinar Vets): I started buying the ID in 2004 and the dinar was in free float market at that time. I realize that the value was low however; I watched it appreciate by almost 40%. Then the price got pegged at around 1170 and has been there for quite some time now. Iraq will refloat there currency and the value will go up fast and they may RV within a short period thereafter. This will all start at any time now and my sources tell me that any RV will occur in January 2013, after the currency floats (the float could happen in 2012).
9-23-2012 Dalite (Response To Labdog): The dinar was on a crawling peg, as the CBI was decreasing the percentage of inflation and increasing the Foreign Reserves. Once the inflation fell below 10%, the rate stabilized, and returned to a hard peg to the USD. As long as inflation remains in single digits, and Iraq adheres to IMF guidelines, it is unlikely to see a further float like we saw while inflation was being brought under control. There is just enough truth in this rumor to give it some legs as far as past float is concerned. That part has merit. The rest, however, while it may be possible, is not probable.
9-23-2012 Mountainman: Iraq is pushing really hard to get out of the Chapter 7 charter. Maliki is strengthening relations with Kuwait and Special Representative for Iraq Martin Kobler is promoting Iraq's departure from the 7th article because of this bilateral progress. The UNSC is assessing Iraq's case and meeting next week for what we hope will be the final push. We've always maintained that having a tradeable currency is one of the stipulations for their removal.
