[Beefy] Wouldn't Iraqis rather hold their dollars, more value?
[BWM] Beefy not if they are told the dollar will be worthless..
[imagine] BWM why would Iraqi citizens want to turn in dollars for dinars at the current rate, they would need a wheel barrow to buy groceries if they did that
[BWM] imagine - Again... if they are being told (via tv and other sources) that the dollar is going to be or IS worthless (americans did leave you know) then they would be more likely to let go of that currency.

[BWM] drizz - Somewhat.. but this is an orchestrated media attempt it appears today
[britney1102] So what does that news do for the RV? Is this a good sign of great things to come our way?
[BWM] britney1102 - Well it's not bad... because if the dollar is "worthless" it means that the dinar has VALUE... remember, they won't "exchange" dinar, they will just get more buying power...
[drizz] If the dollar is worthless in Iraq, then there has to be an RV - doesn't there?
[BWM] drizz that's what hasn't been confirmed yet... I mean how many times have we heard "IN COUNTRY RV"...

[BWM] LINDEEE that's like putting a yield sign up in the bathroom don't you think?
