  1. If anyone gets the fbi virus just restore your computer to an earlier date. This should also work with most viruses. Sorry you had to format/reinstall your OS dontlop that was the worst case scenario. I'm just getting into the IT field. I'm sure that there are people with more experience here at DV. A friend of mine got the fbi virus a few months ago and all we did was restore his computer.
  2. From the Foxnews website: Blair says Iraq's economy is thriving since 2003 invasion and toppling of Saddam Hussein Published November 05, 2012 Associated Press LONDON – Former Prime Minister Tony Blair said Monday that British forces should be proud of their role in the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, citing what he claimed was major social and economic progress since the toppling of Saddam Hussein in 2003. Blair said that Iraq was likely to be one of the world's fastest growing economies over the next decade, hailed drastically lower child mortality rates and trumpeted developments in the southern city of Basra, where most U.K. forces were based after the invasion. However, making a rare speech on Iraq — the most divisive issue of his decade in power — the ex-leader acknowledged that parts of the country continued to suffer from terrorism and destabilizing political tensions. Blair, elected in 1997, faced huge street protests in 2003 against Britain's involvement in the war and was dogged by accusations that he had shown blind subservience to the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush. However, Blair went on to win a 2005 British election, though with a reduced majority. Blair told a conference of the Iraq Britain Business Council in central London that British forces "helped liberate Iraq from Saddam, and for years with much heroism and sacrifice, helped Basra survive the sectarian aftermath," "They should be proud of what they achieved," he added. Blair has made two humbling appearances before Britain's national inquiry into the Iraq war, and was heckled as he offered an apology to the families of military personnel killed in the conflict. The inquiry's report on the contentious buildup to the war, and mistakes in planning for the aftermath of Saddam's fall is scheduled to be completed by mid-2013. In his speech, Blair said that Iraq would have economic growth of around 9 percent in 2012, and that its annual oil revenue of around $100 billion per year was predicted to triple by 2020. On Iraq's progress since the 2003 invasion, he insisted it was "important not to exaggerate it, (but) equally important not to ignore it." Though Blair urged British businesses and foreign investors to seek out opportunities in Iraq, he acknowledged the country still faced many problems. "The challenges that Iraq still faces are obvious: continuing security problems of terrorism, especially around Baghdad; services and infrastructure still far below what they can and should be; and bureaucracy and corruption," Blair said. "Political tensions remain high and often lead to paralysis when the country urgently needs movement. There is also the turmoil in the region, not least in Syria," he added.
  3. My thinking is if Maliki is in so tight with Iran will some of these weapons end up in there hands to skirt the sanctions against them.
  4. Earlier today I saw on the Fox news ticker that Iraq is wanting to strengthen their military. Here is the article from the Fox website. Read more here:

  6. Both the article from foxnews and washington post are the same article supplied by the AP.
  7. Look at the date Jan. 18 2011
  8. Don't shoot me for the topic or the fact that some of you will think that I am a newbie. I just do not make that many post, but read, keep my mouth shut, and most of all laugh. That is what this section is about. Right?? However. Have we all noticed that since OOM quit posting and no one has brought any of his fantasies over here lately. Along with all the others that drink his koolaid. Where did they all go? Just thought I would see what everyone's thoughts are on that. Not that I care about the doofus, nor does anyone at DV that is in their right mind. We know those in their left mind stand next to OOM. RV me baby. Daddy needs a new pair of shoes.
  9. Boy I was not expecting this kind of response for just asking a question about verifying who someone is. By all means I do not back OKIE or anything he says. I take it all with a grain of salt. With special thanks to Dinarthug and Easyrider for providing all of the related humor from OKIE and his other cohorts. But as with any science it is trust but verify. Do I trust OKIE? Not on your life. However until I get a text or email from Adam I will stay put on making any plans. Some of you want to believe 2+2=fish without any question. That's fine what ever floats your boat. As for me I want to find out what 2+2 is. With this question you can tell those who are OKIE kool-aiders that troll on this site to back OKIE with his every word. DV is the only site I follow and for the fact that the openess of topics and replies. So if you want to talk symantics go over to all the other sites because that is all they talk about either/ayther, neither/nayther, tomato/tomado. As for me I will stick to facts and investigative research. As Joe Friday says "Just the fax ma'am"
  10. If you have noticed I have been a member for a while now. Have not posted just due to the humor of the Rumors section. But since Okie made the claim I thought that I would actually do some investigating on what he says. Which seems nothing a lot of members are inclined to do. So again I ask the question. Can any one really identify if this is Okie based upon his claims. That is what this section is all about is rumors. So verify this rumor. We want the facts but no one wants to verify them. So this is your mission if you so incline to accept it. BTW vanman you joined after me and only have 26 post so what catagory does that put you in. Just asking.
  11. Based upon the chat that DinarThug posted and Okies claims to fame, could this really be him?? Red Cavaney Sr. VP of Government Affairs for Conoco/Philips. Okie claims to be a VP of the third largest oil company which would be Conoco/Philips. His profile is listed on the website under About/Leadership Team. Could the mystery actually be solved?
  12. If Okie is who he claims he is then his name is Red Cavaney of ConocoPhilips. Bio is on the website under about/leadership team. Based on his claims the profile fits. Is this really him?
