  1. Here is the copy of the link translated in English and it did say 150 thousand, at least in this translation. Sorry the link I had added was in Arab. This link was taken from another website (DD) which Dinarvets will not allow you to post to their site. January 29th, 2011 10:35 am · Posted in NEWS (Iraq & World Currency) Saturday, January 29, 2011 The Ministry of Education intends to calculate the amount of (150) thousand dinars per month in benefits to the profession of all teachers and teachers, with the amounts allocated to re-work during the school nutrition this year. The media spokesman at the ministry, Walid Hussein, the “morning” that “the Ministry of Education approached the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers for granting allocations profession for all teachers and teachers value (150) thousand dinars per month, and instruct the Ministry of Finance to provide the necessary funds within the budget of education for the current year And that these allocations include all teachers and teachers regardless of years of service, and will be disbursed through the General Directorates of Education in Baghdad and the provinces, upon completion of procedures relating to the provision amounts.
  2. If they have approved 150k dinars per month for their educators wouldn't that mean if the dinar RV's that they would be paid something around $480000.00 per month if the dinar was worth say...$3.22 per US dollar. Just seems like I need to go into education and move ti Iraq. But really can someone make sense of that for me without being sarcastic as so many seem to be on here. Thanks to all professional responses! God bless! Sorry when I post the link is changed, but I think the actual link has already been posted by someone else
  3. ZAKHO, Iraq — A Turkey as resurgent as at any time since its Ottoman glory is projecting influence through a turbulent Iraq, from the boomtowns of the north to the oil fields near southernmost Basra, in a show of power that illustrates its growing heft across an Arab world long suspicious of it. Enlarge This Image Ayman Oghanna for The New York Times Construction at Basra’s Sport City in Iraq. Turkish diplomats say that businesspeople from their country face little competition there. Its ascent here, in an arena contested by the United States and Iran, may prove its greatest success so far, as it emerges from the shadow of its alliance with the West to chart an often assertive and independent foreign policy. Turkey’s influence is greater in northern Iraq and broader, though not deeper, than Iran’s in the rest of the country. While the United States invaded and occupied Iraq, losing more than 4,400 troops there, Turkey now exerts what may prove a more lasting legacy — so-called soft power, the assertion of influence through culture, education and business. “This is the trick — we are very much welcome here,” said Ali Riza Ozcoskun, who heads Turkey’s consulate in Basra, one of four diplomatic posts it has in Iraq. Turkey’s newfound influence here has played out along an axis that runs roughly from Zakho in the north to Basra, by way of the capital, Baghdad. For a country that once deemed the Kurdish region in northern Iraq an existential threat, Turkey has embarked on the beginning of what might be called a beautiful friendship. In the Iraqi capital, where politics are not for the faint-hearted, it promoted a secular coalition that it helped build, drawing the ire of Iraq’s prime minister, Nuri Kamal al-Maliki, along the way. For Iraq’s abundant oil and gas, it has positioned itself as the country’s gateway to Europe, while helping to satisfy its own growing energy needs. Just as the Justice and Development Party of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reoriented politics in Turkey, it is doing so in Iraq, with repercussions for the rest of the region. While some Turkish officials recoil at the notion of neo-Ottomanism — an orientation of Turkey away from Europe and toward an empire that once included parts of three continents — the country’s process of globalization and attention to the markets of the Middle East is upsetting assumptions that only American power is decisive. Turkey has committed itself here to economic integration, seeing its future in at least an echo of its past. “No one is trying to overtake Iraq or one part of Iraq,” said Aydin Selcen, who heads the consulate in Erbil, which opened this year. “But we are going to integrate with this country. Roads, railroads, airports, oil and gas pipelines — there will be a free flow of people and goods between the two sides of the border.” By the border, he meant Zakho and the 26-lane checkpoint of Ibrahim Khalil, where 1,500 trucks pass daily, bringing Turkish building materials, clothes, furniture, food and pretty much everything else that fills shops in northern Iraq. The economic boom they have helped propel has reverberated across Iraq. Trade between the two countries amounted to about $6 billion in 2010, almost double what it was in 2008, Turkish officials say. They project that, in two or three years, Iraq may be Turkey’s biggest export market. “This is the very beginning,” said Rushdi Said, the flamboyant Iraqi Kurdish chairman of Adel United, a company involved in everything from mining to sprawling housing projects. “All of the world has started fighting over Iraq. They’re fighting for the money.” Ambition, in 4 Languages Mr. Said’s suit, accented by a black-and-white handkerchief in the pocket, shines like his optimism, the get-rich-quick kind. In some ways, he is a reincarnation of an Ottoman merchant, at ease in Kurdish, Turkish, Persian and Arabic. In any of those languages, he boasts of what he plans. He has thought of contacting Angelina Jolie, “maybe Arnold and Sylvester, too,” to interest them in some of his 11 projects across Iraq to build 100,000 villas and apartments at the cost of a few billion dollars. So far, though, his best partner is the singer Ibrahim Tatlises, the Turkish-born Kurdish superstar, whose portrait adorns Mr. Said’s advertisement for his project the Plain of Paradise. “The villas are ready!” Mr. Tatlises says in television ads. “Come! Come! Come!” Erbil, the Kurdish capital in the north where Mr. Said lives, has become the nexus of Turkish politics and business, made possible by the sharp edge of military power. About 15,000 Turks work in Erbil and other parts of the north, and Turkish companies, more than 700 of them, make up two-thirds of all foreign companies in the region. Travel requirements have been lifted, and the consulate in Erbil issues as many as 300 visas a day. A Turkish religious movement operates 19 schools in the region, educating 5,500 students, Arabs, Turkmens and Kurds mingling in a lingua franca of English. Turkish officials talk about transforming the region into something akin to the American-Mexican border, a frontier as ambiguous as any line on a map is precise. Even some Kurdish officials have embraced the idea, though interpreting the notion differently. While Turkey sees integration as a way to tap nascent markets in the Middle East, some Kurdish officials have seen it more emotionally, as a way to bind them to Kurdish regions in neighboring countries that no degree of political negotiations could ever achieve. “The borders between us were not drawn by us,” Kamal Kirkuki, the speaker of the local Kurdish Parliament, said of the frontier with Turkey, Iran and Syria, all with Kurdish minorities, “It’s a de facto border and we have to respect it, but in our hearts we don’t see it. We want to integrate the people without any bureaucracies keeping them apart.” Kurds represent nearly 20 percent of Turkey’s population, and Turkish governments have long viewed calls for their self-determination as a fundamental threat to the state. The same went for Kurds in Iraq, whose autonomy might provide an inspiration to Turkey’s own minority. Since 2007, those assumptions have undergone a seismic shift. Over the smoldering reservations of the Turkish military, which has carried out repeated coups against elected governments, Mr. Erdogan has undertaken halting steps to reconcile with Turkey’s own Kurds in what the government has termed “the Kurdish opening.” They have met with mixed success, but the new climate reflects the changes: Turkish diplomats here casually refer to Iraqi Kurdistan — the K-word long being a taboo — and Massoud Barzani, that region’s president, no longer talks about Greater Kurdistan. Diplomatic Balancing Act Less publicly, American officials in late 2007 began to support Turkish military action against Kurdish rebels in Turkey who have sought refuge in northern Iraq. Turkey still keeps as many as 1,500 troops here, officials say, and the cooperation has allowed them, as a senior American official put it, “to quite effectively strike” the Kurdish rebels. Iraqi officials in Erbil and Baghdad have protested, requiring a measure of American diplomacy to soothe their resentment. But at least for now, Kurdish officials have viewed their alliance with Turkey as a greater priority in a region still contested by Iran. “Kurdistan is not against the interests of Turkey,” Mr. Kirkuki said simply. A surprising feature of Turkey’s success is the image it has managed to project in Iraq. On the road from Erbil to Baghdad, its pop culture is everywhere. Posters of Turkish television serials — from “Muhannad and Nour” to “Forbidden Love” — sell by the tens of thousands. The action series “Valley of the Wolves” is a sensation, the lead actor lending his name to cafes. His own posters are computer-altered to show him in traditional Kurdish or Arab dress — grist for a graduate school seminar on the adaptability of cultural symbols. Its political influence in Baghdad is no less widespread. Unlike Iran and the United States, it has cultivated ties with virtually every bloc in the country, though relations with Mr. Maliki have proved difficult at times. (At one point, his officials tried to revoke the Turkish ambassador’s credentials to enter the Green Zone. “A misunderstanding,” Turkish diplomats called it.) Turkish diplomats stay for two years, unlike the one-year posting for Americans, and over that time, they have managed to reach out to unlikely partners, namely the followers of the populist Shiite cleric Moktada al-Sadr. Most of Mr. Sadr’s bloc of lawmakers traveled to the Turkish capital, Ankara, for training in parliamentary protocol. In October, Turks were the only diplomats to attend a commemoration the Sadrists held at Baghdad University. “It is not a group to be excluded,” one of them said. Courting the Sadrists, though, is a sideshow to the real prize being sought in the prolonged months of negotiations over a new government. Turkey strongly backed the fortunes of a coalition led by Ayad Allawi, a secular Shiite politician who enjoys the support of the country’s Sunnis. More than any other country, Iraq’s Arab neighbors included, it is credited with forging the coalition in the first place. American and Turkish interests did not always line up on the government’s formation, and some diplomats questioned whether American officials were perceived as backing Mr. Maliki too strongly. “A high-wire act,” said the senior American official, describing Turkish-American relations generally. Yet those interests are roughly aligned now, and the degree of power Mr. Allawi’s coalition eventually plays in the government will vividly illustrate Turkey’s relative weight in Iraq. “I’d say the Turks put a lot of effort into it,” the official said, “and they still are.” Building Connections In southernmost Iraq, the old Ottoman quarter in faded Basra is crumbling. Its windows are patched with cinder block, though the stench of sewage still seeps in. Across town is the Basra International Fair Ground, built by Turks and opened in June. Three fairs have already been held there, including one organized in November for Iraq’s petroleum industry. Oil is still king in Iraq, and as much as anything else, underlines Turkey’s interests here. The pipeline from Kirkuk, Iraq, to Ceyhan, Turkey, already carries roughly 25 percent of Iraq’s oil exports. The Turks have signed on to the ambitious $11 billion Nabucco gas pipeline project, which may bypass Russia and bring Iraqi gas to Europe. Turkish companies have two stakes in oil contracts, and two more in gas projects, potentially worth billions of dollars. In a land of oil, no place has more than Basra. Turkish ships offshore provide 250 megawatts of electricity a day. Turkish companies have refurbished the Sheraton Hotel in Basra and are helping to build a 65,000-seat stadium. The Turkish national air carrier is planning four flights a week from Istanbul to Basra; only one is offered now, by Iraqi Airways. Vortex, Crazy Dance and other amusement rides in Basraland are Turkish. So are the sweets sold there. “No one is working here except Turkey,” said Mr. Ozcoskun, the Turkish consul in Basra. It was a bit of overstatement from the garrulous diplomat, but not by much. “Basra is virgin,” he said, a phrase Turkish diplomats volunteer about the rest of Iraq, too. “Who comes first, who establishes first, who makes contacts first will make the most profit in the future. I don’t feel any competition right now. Not at all.” I forgot to add the link:
  4. I don't know if this has been posted before...if so, I apologize for the duplicate post. CBI adviser: Dinar will rise against the dollar in the coming period Currency News Hound - [12/6/2010] An official source in the Iraqi Central Bank to witness a remarkable rise of the dinar against other currencies especially the dollar ..

  5. I just got off the phone with a very close friend that is a bank officer and I had her check into this and she knew a person at WF and they told her the price they had on their board as of that phone call was; Kuwait Dinar $3.22 So I am unsure why this $4.04 price is there other than they just don't update their site very often. I do appreciate all of your input to help me better understand this, but as usual no matter what we find it still leaves us wondering, : ) Blessings to all of you!
  6. My associate said Wells Fargo was showing a revalue on the Kuwait dinar at $4.04 as of yesterday. All other rate boards still show Kuwait at $3.56ish. Has anyone else seen this? Thanks for any help. If this is correct then the $3.87ish could be a legit RV for the Iraqi Dinar. If anyone can confirm I would appreciate it. Thanks!
  7. Unwrapping the Gift...James 1:17 (KJV) 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. I can't but help submit this letter of encouragement to all of those that are invested in this opportunity to which we have all started at some point of entrance and became very happy and excited to dream of the the possibilities of such good fortune and what it could afford each of us when it was revealed to us that very first day that we learned about it. However, as time continues to stretch ones resolve as things keep dragging along throughout the days, months, and years; and with each rumor, wrong or right intel, wise or foolish speculations to the next moves that Iraq will make or not make, and of the other types of sources that so many strain every hour to hear, in order to breath some kind of calmness and sense into this decision that they made when they invested in Iraq which is a war torn country with many great challenges. I desire and hope to submit a word from God to all of you that are here on a daily basis waiting for this huge moment of delivery of that child you are carrying within the womb of possiblilties and dreams. God has made it clear that it is He that gives man power to get wealth in order that He might establish His covenant (Deut. 8:18). Therefore, God intends the wealth of the sinner to be laid up for the just (Proverbs 13:22). Why? So that those who will receive it, will listen to His directives in how they are to use it...and extend God's charitableness to a lost and dying world. Unfortunately, there are those that monetary riches will only enhance to a greater level of what they already do with their life. But for the many I do hope that all know that responsibility comes with what God places in your hands. That should be our greatest work now as we wait [we should prepare, plan, and develop our spirit man]...and that of course is readying our hearts for what God will tell us to do with this wealth. Don't take that lightly as to neglect what's most important! With these Scriptures already submitted above, I am sure most of you are familar and are holding on to them dearly to keep your sanity. Yet, I hope to pass along some important wisdom to consider as you wait on this divine and most useful moment to come for so many who believe in its gift. Ecclesiastes 5:19-20 (KJV) 19 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God. 20 For he shall not much remember the days of his life; because God answereth him in the joy of his heart. This passage anchors itself to the fact that God answers in the joy of a person's heart and not in the daily strain of him trying to make things happen so that he might be happy once he or she has it. No! Happiness and riches are already connected to God's children who keep their minds on Him; which on the contrary is why so much effort and concentration on trying to get it obscures our relationship with Him and even causes the heart to become sick through waiting. Many have had their entire personalities change negatively on here through frustrated remarks because they are so deeply rooted in the process, rather than in the One who gives the gift. Let us ascend to a higher place. There is another great passage over in Proverbs that would do us all good to meditate upon and thereby revive our confidence as to the real fact that God favors those who diligently seek and put their trust Him in all matters. The Scripture over in Proverbs that I mentioned is found in: Proverbs 13:12 (KJV) 12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. I believe this passage has perfectly described where many are as of right now relating to this they have been wading daily through the enormous mounds of intel that has still not produced what they essentially have been waiting to hear. My dear friends, our times and seasons are in the hands of the Lord...let us trust Him and keep our eyes upon the Him from where our help comes from. I wonder what our demeanor would look and sound like if our time was so intently focused in the Word of God as we cling to these blogs and other sources of information. I am sure the emotions would not be displaying the ups and downs that so many exude in their comments from one day to the next. We are told in the Bible that as a man thinks in his heart so is he...and again the Bible teaches that from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. These passages are great indicators to the kind of condition the spirit of those who are connected to this soon coming blessing are allowing to develop within them. As people unwrap you in life...what will they find inside? That is an important thought worthy of our meditation. Our inner man is in need of constant maturing in order to cause one to be wise in the things of God. We will need this greatly when this thing unfolds. I will leave this Scripture for your thoughtful meditation my friends and fellow believers in Jesus Christ: Ephesians 3:16-21 (KJV) 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. 20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. God reveals things to His prophets before they happen (Amos 3:7). Again, Jesus said that His sheep hear His voice and no other will they follow. I believe God is desiring for us to listen to Him more intently and get our ears off of listening to so much that has our hearts constantly stressed and sick through the information to which holds so much uncertainity from one day to the next. God sees the ending from the beginning and truely knows what is coming...His insight will suddenly bring us to that day I assure you! Therefore, keep your eyes on Him and let God bring this into fruition in His good timing. It will be perfect! God bless each of you and remember that you are who God says you are! Merry Christmas to all of you and be sure to unwrap the gift of Christ. So many need to see Him!

  9. Basra (Iraq) (Reuters) – The chairman of the Trade Bank of Iraq Hussein Azri said that the bank planned to expand overseas and double the number of branches in Iraq next year to take advantage of the expected oil boom. Azri said that the state-run bank, which also looked forward to financing deals in the energy sector with the implementation of plans to increase oil production in Iraq, a member of OPEC, through a series of agreements with major oil companies and with rebuilding the economy. He said during an interview with Reuters on Thursday on the sidelines of a conference of oil and gas in the city of Basra’s oil industry hub in the south of the country that businesses thrive. He added that the bank is expected to be able to cover the whole of Iraq, its services by the end of next year as well as the opening of three branches outside Iraq. The Bank plans which has 15 branches in Iraq is the opening of eight or nine other local branches in the next year and the opening of three branches in Beirut, London and Istanbul to satisfy the appetite of investors who are looking to Iraq. Iraq has signed a series of agreements with international oil companies in the past year to enhance the production capacity of crude to the power level of Saudi Arabia, which is 12 million barrels per day from about 2.5 million barrels per day at the moment. The country plans, which lacks electricity also increase power generation capacity to build new plants and add new engines to the existing stations. Iraq has big plans to set up infrastructure to export oil to keep pace with the expected increase in crude production but it is lack of funding after years of war, sanctions and poor conditions that devastated its economy. Azri said that the Trade Bank of Iraq will help the government to finance some projects of infrastructure in the oil and electricity sectors. He said the bank within the pavilion which is surrounded by wings of other companies such as Schlumberger and Weatherford and TPAO of Turkey and Malaysia’s Petronas, which won contracts in Iraq’s oil sector, “as we see in novels on the short, the security situation did not deter investors from coming here.” He added that the oil companies began to march and service companies come in now, which will attract hotels, restaurants, residential and office complexes. Azri said that the bank expected a rise in net profit to about 25 percent in 2010 thanks to the banking activities of companies and private banking. The net profit $ 305 million last year. Azri said that the bank was targeting a 20 percent increase in net profit in 2010, but he believes that the increase will exceed this and reach to about 25 percent which is good. He added that the bank started its investment banking and corporate activities in the current year and that he expected revenue growth. Azri said that the bank plans to increase its capital to one billion dollars from 427 million dollars. Share this:Share
  10. It has become among the fashionable and as an economic activity a natural question of the transfer of billions of dollars out of Iraq by private sector banks under the trade deals, and the bulk has not returned to Iraq in imports is needed by the Iraqi market, but turning part of them to the real estate companies and the other part remained balances reviews in foreign banks, and all this happened in the absence of strict financial control deliberately six years ago, and continued to this day without setting the parameters and controls (legislation), to prevent the sale of billions of dollars abroad, and directed towards development. Imports that the private sector for the past five years 2006 – 2010, according to official statements amounted to $ 180 billion! True it is possible to say, because of the economic blockade harsh, which made people sell every thing you own, in order to obtain a living, and after the fall of the Baathist regime of arbitrary, rushed the Iraqis after the rise in their purchasing power to acquire what they need in their homes and make up for what they sold in previous years, But my question is – how much is the share of imported technology from abroad of those billions? .. The answer is zero, nothing like that! Vleutbakt economic policy effective limit the dumping of the internal market, by raising the tariff increase Alگmrگip and rehabilitation of public sector companies and the agricultural sector through the financial allocations sufficient, for it was possible to allocate the bulk of the money leaks out to fill the shortfall in the annual budgets, which is ( chronic disease), which the government no longer able to get rid of it, which will be by 25 billion Dolarvi balance of 2011, but we find the allocations of the Ministry of Industry for the year 2010 is $ 72 million, and this amount is enough to qualify tenth factories belonging to the Ministry of Industry, therefore, the stalemate in the development of industry and agriculture, it was not spontaneous or stems from lack of experience, but a deliberate policy by some parties in power to protect the merchant class parasites, who make up the interface and sponsorship funds and operated in a commercial activity, and some traders are independent heads of their money paying royalties to some influential people in power in order to continue sabotage their business. The last trade agreements, concluded with the Turkish side, which provides for lifting of trade exchange between the two countries to $ 18 billion, but what will be Iraq to Turkey!! … Nothing at all, means more deals flooding the domestic market and the expansion and recovery of parasites merchants. In connection with the currency and deleting three zeros from Iraqi dinar, has been published and DVDs 8.9.2010 on my site civilized dialogue and the voice of Iraq, an article entitled [Remove zeros and raise the purchasing power of the Iraqi dinar] have shown my opinion at the time, but I want to clarify in addition to the deletion of three zeros is the following: - First – you must cancel the nominal current of the Iraqi dinar (1500 dinars = $ 1) developed by L. Paul Bremer III, and re-Face value: the former (1 dinar = 3.1 U.S. dollars), especially as we know that the cash reserves of strategic direct Iraqi currency had reached $ 50 billion , except the reserve is the direct and Danh in my article mentioned above. II – must not exceed the number of types of notes and paper-based JD seven papers, one of the categories (quarter of a dinar, half a dinar, dinars, five dinars, ten dinars, twenty-five dinars – the latter only be traded between banks only) – This rule is prevailing in the countries developed. The increase in types of Baknot lead to slouch a result of such currency and the loss of her rare and inflation. When you achieve the conditions mentioned, will increase the demand for the Iraqi dinar as the currency in foreign markets are rare and therefore its purchasing power will be enhanced.

  11. JugDawg1 Posted Today, 10:18 PM Let it roll like water off a ducks back P Tom. Don't sweat the small stuff. Quite often it just come out wrong and not meant personally. When it is, it's just small minds and don't sweat them either. Your right Jugdawg...the small stuff is unimportant. My original post had a disclaimer before I added the story as I have not been on here very long and was unsure of the validity of the info. Obviously I am way behind on all the info that's been added over the years. My apology to all...I will bow out gracefully and stick to reading and learning. Besides I have not seen anything here that anyone has posted so far that is any different from some other post to some degree. Seems no one really knows much more than what was said years or even months ago. Once again, I'm the newbie here...I'll leave this to those that know what has or hasn't already been posted. Blessings to all of you and hopefully things will happen soon for all. Goodnight!
  12. I thought this was a blog for posting whatever we find that at least is assumed to be new info? Wow, you folks act like I wrote this article. I was just trying to pass along anything current that I haven't seen here. No wonder those that share intel here get tired of even posting anything because of the negative feedback and complaints or just rude comments. Some need to grow up. I'm hoping for the best for all of us, but if something seems to shed some light that I come across I thought is what this blog is about. Geeez!
  13. Don't know if this has been posted already but came across it today. If a duplicate my apology. Bleak outlook for Iraqi politics Although a government has been formed, there has been little reconciliation By Mohammad Akef Jamal, Special to Gulf News Published: 00:00 November 20, 2010 The Iraqi president's role in ending the deadlock over the formation of a government has been greatly exaggerated by the media. There is a huge gap between dreams and illusions and the Iraqi people's bitter reality. The distance between the two is partially a result of the political elite's remoteness from the country's people, and it's almost total isolation. Moreover, the bloody events witnessed in Iraq do not appear to have motivated decision makers to present solutions that may end the political process's gridlock in the country. Leaders of the various political blocs met on November 8 in Erbil, the capital of Kurdistan Autonomous Region. It was hoped the meeting would lead to a long-awaited political breakthrough, as neighbouring countries were becoming anxious about Iraq's instability. The meeting coincided with three major blasts in Najaf, Karbala and Basra, which claimed the lives of many and injured others. The meeting left a lot to be desired. It was purely bureaucratic, with speeches delivered by a number of Iraqi politicians. Nothing that was mentioned was novel, optimistic or could be considered as a move towards breaking the gridlock. The speeches echoed the sentiments that had created the problem in the first place. Touchy issues and difficult problems were not discussed at all. As no developments resulted, many questions were raised about the justification for such a meeting. Talks lasted only one day, because there was nothing more left to say. The people who conferred in a single two-hour meeting decided to resume their negotiations in Baghdad over the next couple of days as a prelude to the Thursday parliamentary session. During the Baghdad meetings, a number of amendments were made to proposals by which a government would be formed, after Iraqiya objected to the omission of four items that it had demanded previously. The pressure exerted on the political blocs was increasing by the minute. The third day's results surprised everyone, because the political blocs decided to hold a parliamentary session. This session was a disaster. The State of Law coalition backtracked on a commitment made to Iraqiya the day before. The promises regarding the formation of a National Council for Strategic Policy, political reform, accountability and justice were all broken, prompting the Iraqiya leader and a large number of the bloc's members of parliament to walk out. It seems the Erbil meeting was intended to pressure Iraqiya to accept the offer of the position of parliamentary speaker, because the other parties had decided amongst themselves who would fill the positions of prime minister and president, despite pressure from the US. No national unity The chances of Iraqiya having a say in serious decision making appear to have receded, as the prime minister has refused to give up any of his powers. His pretext for this is that doing so would require constitutional amendments that might take considerable time, stalling the political process. The end result is that the prime minister has refused to form a government of national unity, as suggested by Iraqiya. The disagreements between Iraqiya and the National Alliance have not been resolved, but they have led to important changes. Iraqiya's position has weakened in recent months, especially since it gave up its right to head the government. The bloc also lost the position of president. Moreover, it has started to soften its position, whereas previously it had insisted it would not take part in a government headed by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki. It was also clear that Iraqiya was divided, as many of its members remained in parliament when others walked out. If illusions are cast aside, one may decide that there is little reason for optimism in the Iraqi political process. Iraq is drifting into the unknown, while the disagreements between different political blocs may find expression on the streets, making it very difficult to predict the outcome. In the midst of these complications, foreign influence may assist in resolving this dilemma. However, reconciliation efforts by some neighbouring countries have been harshly rejected by a number of Iraqi parties due to ideological sensitivities or as a result of past intrusions, which harmed Iraq's stability. The US may be able to wield the most influence for a number of reasons. The US is not linked to any Iraqi ethnic or religious groups; it is mostly accepted by all because it brought down the former Iraqi regime, thus paving the way for the new forces in the government; and it enjoys a distinguished position in the world. The US also has what it takes to make some stubborn countries absolve Iraq of paying its debts. Last but not least, the US has an interest in seeing the Iraqi political process succeed. However, the US has not appeared to put pressure on any party other than Iraqiya. The Iraqi political scene will remain unstable in the short term, as chances for a political reconciliation appear to have receded.
