  1. Two thoughts. One: I thought the US was now self sufficient with it's own oil, This article runs counter to that proclamation. and two: does Western Canada have rabies ??? We already ship oil south from Alberta to refineries in the Gulf states. And the US has been getting it dirt cheap for some time now. Too cheap in fact. We have an abundance of oil and need to find more international buyers. We are trying to get pipelines built to ship our oil to foreign buyers but if the US would pay us a decent price. we would be happy to sell much more to our southern cousins.

  2. The Creature from Jekyll Island. This is who Trump is really going after, ( drain the swamp), and why he's being attacked from all directions. The best things in life RV yak
  3. I can’t see Iraq integrating much more into world finances with out a recognized and convertible currency… The best things in life RV. yak
  4. Pitcher...agreed. and in regards to the first 1/2 ton EV pickup truck with at least a 200 mile range.. That manufacturer will absolutely clean up... The best things in life RV yak

  7. Ya...Ok... this is really gonna help matters in the Middle east. As much as I agree the families that are forced out are entitled to compensation, Israel is not gonna find peace by doing things like this. The best things in life RV yak
  8. I use my 50 dinar notes as coasters. I'm only seeing updated artwork and perhaps security features on the new notes. Seeing Iraq spend the time and money to issue updated notes with no change in the zeros doesn't make me all warm and fuzzy. The best things in life RV yak
  9. I'm sending my brain to absentia.... Sounds like the place to be... The best things in life RV yak
  10. This pizzing match between the US and UAE has got to stop. They are using oil as a weapon and it's causing unprecedented economic pain around the world. Canada (Alberta) ranks anywhere between 4th and 8th in world oil production, but once again current world prices for a barrel of oil have dropped to around $60/bbl. The reason now is because the UAE is flooding the market. Sadly oil from Alberta is only selling for $10/bbl. I have no idea why ? It has decimated our local economy and all but wiped out my business. All have left is the glimmer of hope that the Dinar does some sort of small RV. The best things in life RV All the best. yak
  11. Did Maliki just say that Iran and the Palistinians need to stop picking on Israel ??? Naw.... The translation must be off. The best things in life RV. yak
  12. I remember the article, but I am also aware that the value of the Dinar was dictated by Saddam and was an arbitrary value based somewhat on what surrounding countries currencies were at , at the time. I don't believe the Iraqi Dinar back then was properly traded against a basket of other countries currencies. Saddam just thought it was worth that much and other countries sort of went along with it. I know that the value of the Kuwaiti Dinar and the currency of Saudia Arabia were both up in that level and that the Iraqi Dinar was around $3.21. That said....The value of the Iraqi Dinar is WAY undervalued, and the real question and debate is do we profit from how Iraq restructures it's currency. I see a lot of people saying they are invested in the future prosperity of Iraq, by owning Iraqi Dinars. And I ask this question... Who do you think is going to pay for all those riches you are hoping for when The Iraqi Dinar goes up in value. ? It will in the end come from the country of Iraq. Do I want my slice of the pie ? your darn right I do, but I need to remain pragmatic and use common sense as to how it affects other people and countries, and how that might effect my return on investment.

  13. Keep something in mind. The value of the Dinar cannot be different outside of Iraq than it is inside. if we all make it rich out here and in Iraq the people don't, there would be hell to pay. The value of the Dinar must be treated equally everywhere. IMHO The best things in life RV yak
  14. RD and we are fooked. RV and we are golden. That is the bottom line. That said, Mr. Montana has postulated a dinar worth .10 ( ten cents), to start. If we get some sort of combobulated RD/RV and end up at ten cents I would be happy. Anything more would be icing on the camel cake. But I keep going back to my early pontifications... If the average family in Iraq has a million dinar tucked under the mattress right now. Which is only about $1000 dollars, and we see an RV of 1:1.... Then every family instantly becomes worth a million dollars. Do they deserve that windfall After all they have been through?... perhaps, but.... Making everybody in Iraq instantly wealthy could be very disruptive to the social/economic stability of the country. At best I hope for some sort of combination RD/RV that starts us out at ten cents, with the potential for future gains as Iraq increases the values at fixed rates/times and finally entering the Forex market. Just my .08 cents worth. The best things in life RV. yak
