Wealthwatch Monday Night Chat 1-4-16 Part 2 of 2
chattels: ‹@rocknrollbus› From the Zebari interview today : " On Iraq, the annual debt, the finance minister pointed out that" a lot of debt, and we rate them annually, which exalts the Iraqi state, but the Paris Club loan will not rise
Since our signature Agreement agreed to cancel 80% of Iraq's debt to pay off only 20% of them in the form of premiums, our internal and external debt of $ 30 billion, which is few compared with other countries. " wealthwatch.world/showthr...

rocknrollbus: ‹@chattels› That is their total 20% payment to all the 16-20? countries?? $30 billion?
chattels: ‹@rocknrollbus› That is my understanding, yes.
chattels: ‹@rocknrollbus› Quite a discount, eh ?
rocknrollbus: ‹@chattels› $120 billion at the end of '04.
rocknrollbus: ‹@chattels› I should say so!!
rocknrollbus: Is that final payment due Jan 15? Do you know?
rocknrollbus: Or.............will they push "it" back to......
chattels: ‹@rocknrollbus› The " world " is heavily " invested " in Iraq, but it never seems to be enough and they have their hand out for more continually with a sense of entitlement thereto.
chattels: ‹@rocknrollbus› Unaware of any payment schedule or deadline. If there is one I doubt that it will be enforced or is enforceable.
chattels: ‹@rocknrollbus› Zebari did not seem to be concerned about it in the interview he gave.
rocknrollbus: I would think that one day, the World Bank, IMF, UN, yadda, yadda, yadda.......will say........TIME'S UP IRAQ!!! Just like they did to Greece.
rocknrollbus: Why would the IMF loan them $2 billion?
rocknrollbus: Talking about Abadi and Saudi's on OAN News,
Tootsie: ‹@rocknrollbus› a hah, only the other person I have seen with OAN news, or whom has mentioned it . Great channel, IMO
rocknrollbus: I haven't seen any preference as to their political stories.
chattels: ‹@rocknrollbus› It is what the IMF does.
chattels: Two billion is a " drop in the bucket ".
rocknrollbus: Not just them. Japan, China, USA, Russia, all have been loaning them $$$.
Tootsie: ‹@rocknrollbus› not at all. It is a family owned (I think they stated) news reporting arena, not connected to any one else. I watched an extremely informative documentary series from a Japanese company with respect to isis etc.
chattels: ‹@rocknrollbus› There is a real danger for Iraq in " relying " upon loans.
rocknrollbus: I gues this Charter/Time Warner merger, will take them off the air. I have them on ATT.
rocknrollbus: plus, now they're pumping bonds!!!
Tootsie: ‹@rocknrollbus› yes, noticed that. Have you put in a comment, as they have suggested, to maintain them on air?? I have ATT U-verse ~
Tootsie: ‹@chattels› evening !!
Tootsie: ‹@rocknrollbus› ;-)
rocknrollbus: ‹@Tootsie› ‹@Tootsie› ‹@Tootsie› Hey Toots!! Don't think we've been formally introduced.......
Tootsie: They do have a website,
Tootsie: ‹@rocknrollbus› I normally am not around in the evening, and have been scarce during the day of late. howdy!

chattels: ‹@BOBBY› Many people invested in the dinar are spiritual. I have often contemplated the similarities in the process of conviction.

chattels: For some the " conversion " was gradual and others a Damascus Road experience.
BOBBY: Chattels. ... to this day, i still look for spiritual awareness
chattels: The hour of the dinar exchange event is not unlike the " second coming ".
BOBBY: i belive it will be nothing short of a miracle
chattels: ‹@BOBBY› If there is a God then nothing else matters and if not then nothing matters.
chattels: ‹@BOBBY› There is an element of the miraculous I think.
BOBBY: i have always accepted life is only for a time, i never questioned anything after that
BOBBY: 3 things i do daily , take care of family , come home in one piece, make somekind of difference in someones life
