Arthur: This has been a very long, arduous, and frustrating journey for all of us. Some of us for more years than we wanna count. We have had more false alarms than we care to remember.
Its like the boy that cried wolf has cried it so many times that now that we are potentially looking dead at the wolf running toward us with our own eyes we are just standing there not even running thinking it is just a mirage.
What finally unleashed that wolf is today's agreement on the HCL and on all budget disputes by Baghdad and Kurdistan and by extension with all the other provinces which in essence will solidify Iraq in to one inclusive democratic government
Which today received the blessing of Ban Ki Moon of the UN who announced that they have finally "concluded agreements that are in the interest of the Iraqi people."
Now that Zebari has just formally announced that the central government has agreed to resume the payment of salaries of employees of the Kurdistan Region, intel has it that within days, possibly this weekend Kurdistan leader Barzani will visit Baghdad to formally sign this agreement to ship an agreed upon amount of oil per day
At which time $500 million will change hands, paving the way for a full blown market economy which will by necessity include a reality rate for the Iraqi Dinar, after which IMO we can legitimately say we are in an "Any Day Now" window.
So wake up and be alert my friends. I believe this might just be the real wolf this time
