_ Good morning squirrels.
I have just popped in after reading ArizonaHeat's great post and Q&A session, as well as Footforward's. I would like to offer my 2 cents ( I know no one asked me), but one thing I've noticed is that people are way too quick to pounce on the intel guys when people don't hear what they want to hear.
They are all doing their best to provide you with the best info. they get each day. They are not the guys in control of the RV...so all they can do is make connections and find out the most info they can and bring it to you to help YOU figure out where we MIGHT be.
Their sources are different and have different perspectives from where they see things, what they heard, what they know themselves.

_Even two people at a single accident scene cannot always agree to what they saw, it is just the way we are…different minds, vision, biases that make up our perspective. Different perspectives do not mean one means to tell truth and one means to deceive.
People are generally doing their best to tell what they see the best they can. And when info. Is passed down from one person to the other, it gets “heard’ differently, and may be then repeated differently based on that.
We should give everyone the benefit of the doubt when we hear slight differences in their story…not be so quick to judge them as wrong or manipulative.
As someone who has worked in the investment world for a long time, I can tell you that with ANY other investment, you do not have the luxury of getting any behind the scenes info. on a daily basis.
You simply have to wait for swings in the market, and for annual reports. We cannot see all the details, but we also could not handle them.
Things in life change, sometimes on a dime. When decision makers behind companies, stocks, mutual funds, etc. are people, many things will always change, be renegotiated, etc. That is life.
Imagine an investment with governments, and one with a government that is rebuilding and warring, worse than the US. That is Iraq. We should EXPECT change...daily over there. We listen to news and to intel, and we put it all together to watch this investment. But it is still a long term investment...it is not a bond with a guaranteed payout date.
So in the mean time, take it all in and APPRECIATE all the information you get. If you have faith in your investment, which you should....be happy that it is progressing and moving forward! And do not get in to the daily ups and downs of expecting tomorrow. Hope but to not expect.
I know people need this and are struggling. I am human and can guarantee I have more debt than anyone here. But this is not my savior. God is. And I trust Him to get me through until the RV happens and after. Just take a deep breath and be thankful that we can see this is coming soon. Phil 4:6
I love people and just hate to see so many ups and downs and attacks on our intel people as liars or idiots. They are here for you, for FREE, nothing to gain. Appreciate them! And ride this out with them.
If you cannot do so, if your nerves are frayed, if you cannot control your emotions with your head and stay calm…get off of the blogs. Sign up for an alert system and go about your life until you hear it is finished, or make an appointment to check out your investment’s quarterly or annual “report” on Recaps.
Then decide to stay in for the ride or to get out and find an investment more suitable to your risk tolerance. I hope that before you decide to “get out”, that you research for yourself to see that you will NEVER have the opportunity for the type of potential return that we have in this IQD investment. If you find one, let me know…but I will not hold my breath.
Now take a deep breath and be thankful you are at the end of this journey. You have received the latest state of the “investment” address. You can see the budget has been passed. You have received the memo that Iraq is planning to “pay dividends” soon...very likely before the next quarterly report. Be happy with that, and wait to reap the phenomenal potential reward of your investment soon.
