  1. @Starrider Don't click the English button. Have Google translate it. Hope it helps. Worked for me.
  2. The way the article is written, it sounds like they are just replacing worn and damaged small notes. I agree ther are not going to say " HEY! RV next week". But the article isn't that cryptic. For once That stability part is BS. How much more stable do they think that are going to get? If they don't start giving there people some basic utilities and oil proceeds things will get a lot less stable. In my humble opinion.
  3. Why would they need a loan if they have built up there gold reserve amounts, have a ton of oil and are supposedly going to revalue their currency? Can someone explain that to me? I'm not saying that they are not going to revalue, but why wait take out loans? I'm sure there is interest to be paid back with this loan.

    @gregp Care to elaborate why you think/ feel that way? Inquiring mind want to know. Thank you.
  5. Well, G. Bush did say the war wouldn't cost us anything. We maybe excluded from anything that happens inside Iraq's borders when the currencie are changed. Every once in awhile an event occurs that you're lucky enough to be a part of. Look at the Marshall plan.
  6. @jg1 You and me both brother. Im not letting go either. Bought 14 years ago. I considered it lost at that time. Not that I wasn't positive about this investment but it's always been speculative. I understand what your saying about the Lop discussion. I personally hope I say something that looks like a Lop and someone proves my thought wrong. Also I've never visited the Lop section but maybe one time. Too hostile. Lol. I like my discussions civil and adult orientated.
  7. @jg1 I don't think anyone is pro Lop here. We are just throwing out thoughts and ideas to encourage discussion. What's your thought on what it's saying? Not being confrontational. Just asking.
  8. If I'm reading your question right then 1 dinar would equal .84 cents. That would bw great if we didn't have to exchange the 1000 note for the 1 note.
  9. Treason indeed! But I bet he walks away with a scolding and a hand slap. It's this kind of underhanded crap that keeps the US from being taken seriously. The Democrats and Republicans act just as tribal as the Iraqis. More energy destroying each other than making things better for their constituents.
  10. So here is a thought. Right now we are basing everything on a 1-1 scale. What if they exchange the 25000 dinar note (which is worth $ 21 US dollar) for the 25 dinar note and gave it a value of 1 dinar equals $3 US dollars. That would make there 25 dinar note equal to $63 US dollars and at the same time give the Iraqis more purchasing power. Just a thought.

    @Butifldrm Thank you. That's what I thought. It confirms my thinking that the release of small currency means very little at this time. But hey, it's a step in the right direction.

    I'm getting confused. Is the CBI independent of the government? If that is true then it doesn't matter what the government does. I only make this statement because it seems everyone seems optimistic the the CBI is going to release large amounts of small currencies ( other thread) with no mention of a seated government. But it seems people get worried that a seated government is needed to to implement the HCL. The implementation of the HCL has always been the stated trigger for the RV. But if the CBI releases small currencies without a revaluation are we saying that there will be a second release of even smaller notes when the RV happens? As is stands now, the 250 dinar would be about. 20 cents today. If that is the case then the CBI is independent but needs the government to be seated for implementation of the HCL. I know that wasn't explained very well. I guess what I'm saying is that in my opinion the release of small notes means nothing except to make purchase of everyday items easier and will not be significant until the HCL is implemented. Correct me if I'm wrong.
