The call was still going on at the time of this posting - it was stated that he was doing a Q & A -- we will post more as soon as available -
3:53 PM [SWFloridaGuy] 5-21-2012 Randy Koonce: Follow what the leaders are saying not what the opinions are that they report. Just like you should follow what Shabibi says rather than an opinion piece.
I've had 500 emails saying Maliki is out. If Maliki is out, THAT'S GOING TO BE MAJOR NEWS. So, you won't have to ask about that. The no confidence vote will be in the public eye. Do I think they will have it, no. Do I think they are using it, yes. It is the proverbial gun to the head.

If they go ahead with a no-confidence they will call an emergency meeting and submit the paperwork. After 3 days transpire they would take a vote and at that point he's either gone or stays. No question about it and I doubt they will go to that unless they are certain they have the votes.
I think they have Maliki's toes pinned to the ground to get this done. We're looking for an announcement from Maliki by Wednesday at the latest. The National Meeting will turn into a press conference where they announce strategic council and ministers.
3:53 PM [SWFloridaGuy] 5-21-2012 Randy Koonce (continued) Soon as we get the strategic council that's it, we're done. That's all we've ever been waiting on. Follow events, not dates. Dates will kill ya.
The events guarantee Shabibi to be able to do what he needs to do to release the currency. The removal of the zeros is only about the removal from the street, not the rate.
I got some information also that they are going to raise the value of the VND. I do not know how much. So, is Maliki gone? No. Will he be removed? I don't know but we should have a public announcement this week. They can't go much further than that. No later than the end of this month, we are in such a good time right now. This is event driven and will be announced publicly
