  1. It only took 1 and a half pages to debunk... And the winner is...........................................SUL...
  2. We have more murder and violence in the U.S. every year then Iraq could ever have, yet our currency has nothing to do with that. It's all about products and services, imports and exports, and production of fuel and metal sources. Iraq has alot of fuel and natural gas resources that all the middle eastern and every country throughout the world would pay for, so the potential for the dinar to go up is great. I don't care what any self porclaimed experts or gurus say..
  3. The banker must have not looked up the Iraqi currency trend. let's see, I bought my Dinar on "04 at $760.00 US dollars and it is worth $859.00 or give or take, so the Dinar did not decrease in value.. Currencies are nowhere like rolex watches or investment properties. Do your own research and if you can afford a grand or even a couple hundred dollars to buy some dinar, you have a good chance of a profitable return.. small investment for a change to have life changing results. And if the dinar crashes and none of us makes any money, at least we tried and kept the faith of positivity.. HAPPY NEW YEAR..
  4. December 23rd, 2011 at 12:33 pm The controversy over Mitt Romney’s latest comments on Iraq makes one thing clear: the war may be over, but its shadow haunts our political discourse. To declare oneself an unrepentant supporter of the intervention is to risk opprobrium: in a blogpost assessing the moral feasibility of voting for Ron Paul with all his baggage, Conor Friedersdorf suggests that it’s hardly worse than voting for someone “who insists that even given the benefit of hindsight, the Iraq War was a just and prudent one.” The prevailing view, increasingly shared on the right as well as the left, views the war in Iraq as a blunder if not a crime, a terrible waste of life on both sides. But reality is more complex—and, if early triumphalist views of the war proved tragically wrong, antiwar absolutism is also misguided. For one, there is a large and important group that does not see this war as utterly pointless: the Iraqi people. Survey after survey has found Iraqis more or less evenly split on whether the 2003 invasion was right or wrong, usually leaning toward “right.” (In 2009, only 28 percent saw it as “absolutely wrong.”) This is remarkable, considering that humans have a strong ingrained instinct to loathe foreign invaders—particularly ones with a different culture and a different dominant religion—and that respondents included people who held privileged positions under Saddam Hussein. In other polls, as many as three out of four Iraqis have agreed that Saddam’s removal was worth it despite the hardships. In some important ways, “Operation Iraqi Freedom” was not a misnomer. Iraqis today have freedom of speech, religion, and political activity that would have been unthinkable ten years ago. Indeed, President Obama has acknowledged this despite his opposition to the war. In his 2010 Oval Office speech on the war’s official end, he stated that American troops “defeated a regime that had terrorized its people” and that “Iraq has the opportunity to embrace a new destiny, even though many challenges remain.” This brings to mind the early days of the invasion, when jubilant crowds in Baghdad tore down the statue of the fallen tyrant and even some staunch war critics on the left were ready to convert. This optimism was soon shattered. By 2008, polls found that nearly half of Iraqis wanted U.S. and allied troops out immediately while another 20 percent wanted them to leave within the year. Most troubling, many Iraqis voiced sympathy for attacks on American soldiers, who came to be seen as killers rather than liberators. The war’s mismanagement was undoubtedly part of the fiasco. But the problem goes deeper. Any military that tries to be a benign occupying force faces an extremely tough quandary. Being too aggressive in dealing with the occupied population invites backlash and anger; not being aggressive enough may lead to anarchy and anger over failure to prevent violence. U.S. troops have faced Iraqi hostility on both counts. Wrongful killings of civilians—especially in the chaos of insurgency where it can be near-impossible to tell combatants from non-combatants—create another painful dilemma. If the military metes out severe punishments, both the troops and many people back home will likely see this as a betrayal toward soldiers serving their country in an unimaginably harsh and deadly situation. If the punishments are too lenient or non-existent, there goes any chance of winning hearts and minds. Indeed, negotiations to allow some U.S. forces to remain in Iraq collapsed over the 2005 killings in Haditha, where 24 Iraqis, including six small children, were gunned down by U.S. Marines who had just lost a comrade to a roadside bomb. The squad leader is still facing trial; charges against several others have been dropped, sometimes in exchange for their testimony. However cloudy the circumstances, such an outcome shocks conscience and common sense. In the recent talks, Iraq’s government wanted the U.S. to allow American soldiers to be tried by Iraqi courts for offenses on Iraqi soil. While U.S. resistance to this demand is understandable, so is Iraqi bitterness. This is not to vindicate the left-wing cliché of the war as American slaughter of Iraqis (or even racist slaughter of “brown people”). Nearly 90 percent of the post-invasion deaths have been Iraqis killing Iraqis in sectarian or insurgent violence. What’s more, whatever the failings of U.S. military justice, Iraqis had a vastly better chance at protection and redress against abuses by American troops than by Hussein’s henchmen. But human nature is such that the deaths of “one’s own” at the hands of foreign invaders, no matter how benevolent, will be seen as more galling. If this reaction smacks of tribal loyalty, so does the Rush Limbaugh crowd’s knee-jerk defense of virtually any U.S. service member accused of crimes against Iraqis. Political resistance from the right has almost certainly helped undermine the effective prosecution of such cases, and with it the goodwill America had earned among Iraqis. One problem with hindsight is that it’s impossible to tell how events would have developed in a different scenario—in this case, one without the war. Assuming that something like the “Arab Spring” would still have broken out and reached Iraq, the ensuing bloodshed might well have exceeded that of the last eight years. On the other hand, the immediate escalation of sectarian strife in Iraq following the withdrawal of U.S. troops does not encourage optimism. Nonetheless, history’s final verdict is far from being in. Indeed, despite the conventional wisdom that the war is overwhelmingly unpopular in the U.S. today, polls show that Americans are evenly divided on whether taking military action in Iraq was the right decision; even 37 percent of Democrats believe it was. It is also worth remembering that many people of unquestionably high moral stature—including Czech president and former dissident Vaclav Havel, who died last week—supported the intervention. History, which disproves the pacifist shibboleth that freedom can never be exported by military force, may vindicate them yet.
  5. Fri Dec 23, 2011 11:58am EST Reuters) - Several thousand Iraqis in Sunni Muslim strongholds protested on Friday against Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, responding to his moves against two Sunni leaders and taking to the streets a day after fatal bombings hit the capital Baghdad. Maliki this week sought Sunni Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi's arrest on terrorism charges and moved to fire a Sunni deputy. On Thursday at least 72 people were killed in Baghdad by bombings in mainly Shi'ite neighborhoods. The events threaten to splinter Iraq's fragile sectarian and ethnic faultlines and highlight the risk of the country tumbling into the kind of bloody slaughter that a few years ago led the OPEC oil-producer to the edge of civil war. After Friday prayers, with Sunni imams warning Maliki was seeking to foment sectarian divisions, protesters were on the streets of Sunni-dominated Samarra, Ramadi, Baiji and Qaim, many waving banners in support of Hashemi, and criticizing the government. "The charges against Hashemi were orchestrated behind closed doors. Maliki is trying to remove Sunnis from power to get a tight grip, like as a new dictator of Iraq," said Ahmed al-Abbasi, a+ protester from Samarra. The crisis could scuttle a delicate power-sharing agreement that splits posts among Shi'ite, Sunni and Kurdish leaders just days after the last American troops withdrew nearly nine years after the invasion to oust Saddam Hussein. "What's happening in Iraq is settling political scores," Iyad Allawi, Maliki's predecessor and head of the Sunni-backed Iraqiya bloc, told al-Arabiya television. An emergency session in parliament among leaders of political blocs to debate the crisis was cancelled on Friday. For many Sunnis who feel marginalized by the rise of Iraq's Shi'ite majority since the fall of Saddam, Maliki's measures have deepened worries the Shi'ite leader is making a power grab to consolidate Shi'ite power. "Hashemi, fear not, with our blood we support you," one banner read in Samarra. Hashemi denies charges his office ran an assassination squad. After the interior ministry broadcast what it said were confessions from Hashemi's bodyguards, the Sunni leader left for semi-autonomous Iraqi Kurdistan, where he is unlikely to be handed over to central government authorities. U.S. DIPLOMACY, REGIONAL WORRIES Baghdad was quiet on Friday with many people deciding to stay off the streets following Thursday's string of bombings, which included a suicide bomber, driving an ambulance, who detonated his explosives outside a government office. The last American troops left Iraq over the weekend, nearly nine years after the invasion that toppled Sunni dictator Saddam. Many Iraqis fear a return to sectarian violence without a U.S. military buffer. U.S. officials are trying to stay engaged in Iraq. Vice President Joe Biden called Iraqi President Jalal Talabani to support efforts to resolve tensions and Army Chief of Staff General Raymond Odierno met with Maliki on Thursday. U.S. intelligence agencies had warned that security gains in Iraq could degenerate into sectarian violence after the withdrawal. Turmoil in Iraq would have wider consequences in a region where a crisis in neighboring Syria is becoming increasingly sectarian, and Shi'ite Iran, Turkey and Sunni Arab Gulf nations are all positioning for more influence. Iraqi Shi'ite leaders worry a shift to a hardline Sunni government in Damascus if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad falls would unbalance their country's own delicate sectarian makeup, or spill instability over the border.

  6. They are under chpt. 7 sanctions now, and the Dinar is internationally traded. You can buy and trade Dinar in at various banks in the U.S and other parts of the World.. It's listed on and other forex trading sights.. Iraq buys and sells Dinar according to the CBI website..
  7. We have to rely on speculation, what's been released in the news, and some common sense. Which in Iraq means death or a severed body part.. OUCH...
  8. During the 1991 Gulf war, allied forces knew of several underground military bunkers in Iraq that were so well reinforced and so deeply buried that they were out of reach of existing munitions. The U.S. Air Force started an intense research and development process to create a new bunker-busting bomb to reach and destroy these bunkers. In just a few weeks, a prototype was created. This new bomb had the following features: •Its casing consists of an approximately 16-foot (5-meter) section of artillery barrel that is 14.5 inches (37 cm) in diameter. Artillery barrels are made of extremely strong hardened steel so that they can withstand the repeated blasts of artillery shells when they are fired. •Inside this steel casing is nearly 650 pounds (295 kg) of tritonal explosive. Tritonal is a mixture of TNT (80 percent) and aluminum powder (20 percent). The aluminum improves the brisance of the TNT -- the speed at which the explosive develops its maximum pressure. The addition of aluminum makes tritonal about 18 percent more powerful than TNT alone. •Attached to the front of the barrel is a laser-guidance assembly. Either a spotter on the ground or in the bomber illuminates the target with a laser, and the bomb homes in on the illuminated spot. The guidance assembly steers the bomb with fins that are part of the assembly. •Attached to the end of the barrel are stationary fins that provide stability during flight. The finished bomb, known as the GBU-28 or the BLU-113, is 19 feet (5.8 meters) long, 14.5 inches (36.8 cm) in diameter and weighs 4,400 pounds (1,996 kg). This is a fraction of a nuclear weapon. All propaganda, people.. If we used nukes we would have heard about it from the U.N, China, Russia, etc.etc.etc...

    The point is that it's the same old shiite and this post is just perpetuating the B.S. cycle, and a moderator should not be making snide and blatantly rude remarks about a reply to a rumor.. How about moderating rumor posts from other sites, that at one time used to not be allowed. This is the reason some of us don't come on this site that much anymore..
  12. Even if a bank name was mentioned, there is no such thing as insider trading with currencies. I posted some info on this a couple of months back. I keep reading posts that banks can't tell people that the dinar will r.v. on monday so buy now, because that's insider trading. That's just false. Shabbs can Japan to invest in the dinar today because we will r.v. on friday and that still would not be insider trading...
  13. Everybody relax this is the RUMOR SECTION.. Easy is not a pumper wannabe he is only posting topics from other sights, so don't be to hard on the guy...
  14. This may be true. But they still need to pass the new HCL so the regions know what percentage of oil revenue they will receive. If I remember, Al-Maliki agreed last year to give the Kurds 17 % and the Kurds turned that down.. The soap opera continues.. Keepm, november = mw3. can't wait..
