  2. Disappointed

    Wizard, I send healing light to you and your family. I am so sorry for your loss.
  3. disappointing that so few nations were represented, according to the videographer's panning of the to substance, his message included an overview and request for humanitarian aid for displaced Iraqis relative to D'aesh, among other things. And yes, he did mention political solution in Syria, and 2 state - Palestinian and Israeli with pre '67 boundaries. Also wants nuclear capability.
  4. I think this may be it, Skeetdog - and there could have been an editing glitch in the original article.
  5. Frankly, the logic in Goat's submission doesn't pass muster with me, anyway. I can't imagine customs 'letting' something pass through simply because the rate was so low. If it were improper, it should not matter at what value - it either is or isn't - my opinion only, of course.
  6. Thanks, Mark and SnowGlobe, for your reassuring responses. I purchased from vendors - DinarTrade and G.I.D., and always felt comfortable with the provenance, - it was just 'through the flowers' of various news articles in the last 9 months or so that I would read Iraqi dignitaries comments alluding to excessive amounts of smuggling and how the country could not support...blahblah - we all read those articles, we've all journeyed a long while, and if in the end, it is my error to have purchased through a vendor rather than a bank, it will just be a bridge I cross then. I always felt my purchases were legitimate.
  7. (So how do currency brokers get their dinar to sale in USA or Europe? They get it mostly from Jordan and Turkey where it is illegally smuggled out of Iraq from corruption. It is allowed to pass thru customs to the USA and Europe because the rate is so low. But I assure you this play money (3 zero notes) was never meant to leave the country of Iraq. Okay enough of this old stuff you should already know….) Should we be concerned with this opinion?

    In both translations, Saradise, I am reading ?? / interpreting ?? an allusion to Abadi's complicity during his tenure in the first paragraph, in addition to Maliki's in the second. What are your thoughts - anyone's?
  11. Certainly I have a marginal information base about the larger note (s), especially when compared to the thoughtful opinions expressed here. I do seem to recall that an article or more were presented on forum indicating these larger notes would be used for institutional and commercial trading, which at this point, since the introduction of digital operations, appears redundant, unless one is intended for bank to bank, and the other for bank to brick and mortar business. Does anyone else remember the articles about larger notes that were posted some time ago?
  12. Yes, this is my understanding, also, that tomorrow, Monday, 3.20.2017, is the reset date from last Thursday's postponment. Who knows for sure...
  13. I used to live there - in a different political climate - such a beautiful country with beautiful people and culture - this is so very sad to read, unsurprising, but sad, with the country's leadership in the last couple of decades. I have wonderful friends there, and they are on my mind often - this last year or so, I don't hear from them as often as before - a sign of their time. We have elected a President who I truly believe will do everything in his power to ensure that our countrymen are protected from those who mean us harm. I wish Venezuela had the same concern for its citizens.
