Remember, no one really knows what will happen, or when. They're simply stating their opinions based on what they perceive to be happening in Iraq... RON
*** Militiaman Article: "Finance holds a consultative meeting to implement two systems...and reveal their benefits" ...We expected there to be meetings today with Sadr, Finance Minister and CBI Governor. This is not just getting started, they have the system ready to go and todays meeting is about the process of initiation of implementation of the system. They will be consistent with international programs and systems. [Post 1/2]
*** MilitiaMan With all we know the automation of the borders, the AYSCUDA SYSTEM, the BUNA PLATFORM, ISO20022, deletion of the zeros project, etc., we can see there is far more progress in the white paper programs than ever before. The CBI papers show they already printed currency for the project...So it is not surprising that we see the big hitters having a meeting on implementation over advanced internationally acceptable systems...I like what we are seeing.

*** Pimpy Looks like the independents have at least shown a little bit of their hand...they might be heading towards the direction of Sadr. It is not set in stone yet. They're waiting for him to get finished with his 40 days of seclusion. I thought it was done but apparently not... Article: "The Independents are waiting for a position from Al-Sadr after the deadline for the framework expires". I think what they want to know is...if you want us to help you establish the government and take sides against the Coordination Framework what are you giving us. What are you promising us.
*** Frank26 Article: "Is it time to delete zeros? Economist commented" MR. ECONOMIST YOU KNOW VERY WELL IT'S TIME... OR YOU WOULDN'T CONTINUE TO BRING UP THE SUBJECT
*** Militiaman Article: "Initiating the implementation of a new mechanism to support the validity of the issuance of customs permits" Put this with the meetings with the CBI, the Finance Minister, the IMF, the World Bank, Banks in Iraq, etc...we can see that Iraq is going international and quickly now, as in very quickly!!! It appears that it is all systems go now... Even the deletion of the zeros project is being talked about...we are well on our way for a big change in the way things are going to run and what mechanism they will use. It won't be 1460 imo...[See MilitiaMan's post Above]
*** Mnt Goat STATUS OF THE RV...The news is all fantastic and this is moving fast now...The plan is laid out and the clock in ticking towards a targeted timeframe period to begin. Yes, we are now in this period, according to the Central Bank of Iraq, tic toc, tic toc.
Yes, and he/she forgot......... WE ARE CLOSER THAN WE HAVE EVER BEEN BEFORE !!
