Smoke article...? Gee, we hope so.
"Looka, looka what our right hand is doing....! "(so you don't see what we're really doing with the other!)
Now consider what they do with that "other" hand...... They do not eat with it, oh no....
Punishment can oft times mean severing the hand they DO eat with so as to.... well, you know.
Yup, we gotta keep an eye on 'em.... masters of the 'slight of hand'......
Agree. There may be smoke & mirrors coming out of Baghdad right before the big event to get as many IQD off the streets & out of the hands of overseas investors. It has worked in the past when the Shabs was running the CBI.
Other MPs have even suggested no movement of the IQD until after elections awaiting Talibani's replacement. Talibani remains incapacitated thus can't pen off on many passed laws still sitting on the shelf gathering dust.
Just my take looking at both sides of the coin.
