  1. Let’s hope this gets resolved soon. The UN has already warned Iraq about the problem this and an unseated government poses to their stability and rule of law. If somehow Iraq can resolve these issues and get a seated government, think of how much faster their economy can grow without uncertainty hanging over them.
  2. How many times has Bruce exchanged his Dinar? …at least 17 different days or weekends at various rates from $2 to $15. 🤡
  3. Fractional Banking. Get that lettuce in the hands of businessmen and industry. Give Iraq’s people and economy a taste of full blown capitalism and take their economic growth to another level!
  4. A lot of optimism coming from the gurus lately. Hope Iraq can put the pieces together soon for the people and country’s sake. Thanks Ron
  5. Praying a solution comes forward to resolve this stalemate before Iraq devolves into political chaos and their already worthless currency goes the way of Turkey.
  6. The UN is speaking the language of the people. The Iraqi people are so frustrated with these politicians and their corruption (as are most of us on this forum). The solution is get the government in place, reach an agreement on oil and gas law and move their economy forward. Those 3 steps would put Iraq in position to go international with their currency and finally RV. Somehow someone needs to get rid of Maliki. He is a cancer and a spoiler of all progress that is good in that country.
  7. Yeah Barzani, you are correct—the constitution must be followed; except you talk out both sides of your mouth…the constitution stipulates a mutual agreement between Kurdistan and Baghdad, but you asshats keep kicking the can down the road so you can line your own pockets and claim you are the victim of unilateral political decisions from Baghdad. Nobody’s buying it. MAKE THE DAMN AGREEMENT!
  8. Like everything you said Laidback. Modernizing their economy will close loopholes for corruption and make imbezzelent of money more easily detectable. It will force corrupt politicians to vote for their corruption openly with pork bills like a modern corrupt government should 😆. Make them accountable to the people—at least let them think their votes make a difference. Lol More importantly it is preparing Iraq to go international with their monetary system. Progress.
  9. Who lets their phone completely lose it’s charge? And what if it revalues low and floats? Y’all gonna run to the bank the moment it opens? Even if it comes out $1+, what’s the hurry? We ain’t running out of US dollars anytime, like ever. 😆
  10. Or maybe the Biden Administration could take accountability. Totally avoidable by opening up production here in the US. Maybe after the drubbing in November things will change.
  11. Wait and see on the government and budget this weekend. I won’t hold my breath. If it does come to pass as gurus are stating, that would be good news. Maybe then we’ll get some more articles about the exchange rate debate and the tail chasing continues.
  12. Pimpi, I have 7 million Dinar…I must have more faith in the Dinar than you do. 😆😉😎
  13. With all the 💲 they are bringing in with the high oil prices, it is not that big a deal. What is a big deal is trying to buy stuff with wheelbarrow loads of cash because your currency is worthless. Come join the 21st century Iraq. Your growth and reserves are strong enough to do so.
  14. Russia Shuts Off Gas To European Nations Refusing To Pay In Rubles By Dillon Burroughs • Apr 27, 2022 • SERGEI GUNEYEV/Sputnik/AFP via Getty Images A majority state-owned Russian oil and gas company has cut off natural gas to Poland and Bulgaria after the two European nations refused to pay in rubles. Russian gas corporation Gazprom announced on Wednesday that it had shut off access due to unpaid April bills after the nations refused to pay in Russian currency. “The announcement by Gazprom that it is unilaterally stopping delivery of gas to customers in Europe is yet another attempt by Russia to use gas as an instrument of blackmail,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a statement. “This is unjustified and unacceptable. And it shows once again the unreliability of Russia as a gas supplier,” she added. Fatih Birol, the executive director of the Paris-based International Energy Agency, said the cutoff was a “weaponization of energy supplies,” according to the Associated Press. The AP also noted that natural gas prices in Europe shot up 25% in response to the report before easing later in the day. Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov noted the concern in a Twitter post, mentioning a call with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis regarding “energy security and diversification.” Poland Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said he believed the move was in revenge for his nation’s support of Ukraine following Russia’s invasion. In a post to Twitter, the prime minister noted he had spoken with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz “about an urgent delivery of arms to [Ukraine] and reliance on [Russian] gas and oil. Short term it will be difficult to wean Europe off them, but long term it will serve peace. Europe cannot afford to live in constant danger from [Russian] aggression.” The concern also comes as Russia continues to blame other nations over problems related to its invasion of Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused NATO on Monday of escalating the war in Ukraine and warned of a “considerable” threat of a nuclear world war. Lavrov said the West has escalated tensions by providing weapons to Ukraine as the Russian army continues its assault on the European country, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. “The risk is serious, real. It should not be underestimated,” Lavrov told Russian state-run TV. “Under no circumstances should a third world war be allowed to happen.” Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called out the Russian blame strategy, claiming the move indicates the nation is suffering defeat. “Russia loses last hope to scare the world off supporting Ukraine. Thus the talk of a ‘real’ danger of WWIII. This only means Moscow senses defeat in Ukraine. Therefore, the world must double down on supporting Ukraine so that we prevail and safeguard European and global security,” he tweeted. Perhaps a chance for Iraq to provide natural gas to Europe? Get in there Iraq!
  15. Well, this kind of talk gets countries like Iran sweetheart deals and billions of dollars in cash in the dark of night from Barak Hussain Obama and his sidekick Joe Biden. we know how Al Sadr feels about America, why not add Israel to the list and watch the American left reward this rhetoric with praise and adoration. This is going backwards.
  16. I think we will see Iraq de peg from the dollar, delete the zeros, RV and go international at a lower rate. THEN they will let their currency float on the open market (it will go up in value). The only question is WHEN???!!!
  17. If Kap or Frank were able to produce real evidence, like a video or news story regarding these reeducation “symposiums” that are allegedly being held for the citizens, I’d be more inclined to pay attention. It’s a bunch of BS and just theories on both sides of the issue. On one hand you have education regarding the project to delete the zeros (Frank) and on the other a LOP (Kap).
  18. Jesus Christ was resurrected. He lives! Not a rumor, verified, not opinion. (Maybe this should be in the news section!) 😇
  19. If only there was real tangible evidence of this economic recovery and growth for the citizens of Iraq and the rest of the world. 🧐
  20. Best conditions lately? These clowns are terrible politicians. How many citizens are gonna agree with that statement? I’d guess nobody outside the greedy elites.
