  1. The value of the goods and services does not change. It is the value of the currency that changes , so prices will be adjusted to the new value of there currency in the event of a RV/RI
  2. This is a great question. I am no expert but my thinking is that any asset which is sold for a profit is subject to taxes either as capital gains and or income. But also I believe they can't tax you until you cash in and that is where professional advise is needed on the best way to legally avoid as much as you can.~~~Bluto
  3. Thanx Chief,, Hope you will stay in touch. I'm gonna love to see the chaos here in Iraq when this goes down. Might take a while to get out of here but still wanna see it happen. Have a safe trip home. ~~~~~Bluto
  4. WOW This is good news for us. Seems like a really good sign that a RV/RI is about to happen so they can afford to kick this plan off.~~~Bluto
  5. Hope Allawi has has plenty of ammo. This could be like the OK corral. Maliki is getting desperate. I am rooting for Allawi in this dog fight but more than anything it just needs to be done already.~~~~ Bluto
  6. Why would they need a loan if there was any plan to RV. I don't see this as good news. Could be smoke and mirrors but who knows.
  7. $1000 Usd for 1000000 IQD is 1/10th of a penny per dinar
  8. I think someone here posted this guy doing a video about the dinar and dong. It was about 6 months ago. I remember the name and his comments about the employment figures being so important for Vietnam. I don't remember anything about such a low rate though. If he is right we certainly have been had. But I just can't believe it ,after all the intel we have seen from from so many different sources. It is possible that it is disinformation or a smoke screen to get people to sell back there dinar now before the RV/RI ~~~~ Bluto
  9. Thanx Chief I am hearing the same thing as well. Just got back in country yesterday. While passing thru the airport in Baghdad I tried to talk with some of the Iraqi civilians. The ones that I could understand and could understand me seemed excited that it was coming very soon. While I can not be sure of these sources it was still good to hear positive news. I have probly the same retirement goals as you do and have been looking at some large yachts in Malaysia and Thailand. Also there is a great yachtmaster coarse in Langkawi , Malaysia. Let me know if your interested, I'll send you the link to check it out...~~~~~Bluto
  10. I agree Doc and thought the same thing about Iraq. Why would any country sell bonds if a RV was coming. Don't see how Vietnam could back a RV with there present economy.
  11. I'm thinking that much of it was on consignment to other banks and still under control of the CBI so all they had to do was call for it to be returned. They may also have bought it back now while it is cheaper before the revalueation. Either way it looks like a good sign for us.~~~~Bluto
  12. Got 10 as well, also not suprized at the the public results.
  13. They voted for the parliment only I believe. It is up to the newly seated parliment to choose the PM, speaker and President.
  14. can not open any of the links, but hopefully this could be really great news for us~~~~~
  15. Ron I look at it this way. They will be making money on both ends. First they sell dinars for USD's which goes into there foriegn reserves,, then they sell oil getting back there higher valued dinars. Seems like a win win situation for them. JMHO ~~~~~Bluto
  16. thanx k98 for the well wishes,, really appreciated... An RV/RI would be the ultimate Bday gift LOL ~~~~ Bluto
  17. Trust me if she gets half there is plenty for us both. I have no resentments and wish her well, she is the mother of my 2 kids. Just time to move on is all.
  18. It is my understanding that the troop level will still be at about 50,000 at the end of August and will remain at that level for a year or so. There will always be a American troops here in the future. But at a much reduced level. As far as going off base for financial services it is still too dangerous for that, at least for us contractors. We still run convoys with military escorts for protection. How many troops and bases remain in the future is OPSEC information and I couldn't say it even if I knew it. But it sure is a good sign to open banks on these bases. JMHO ~~~~~ Bluto
  19. I have been working here in Iraq as a contractor for almost 5 years now. I heard about it early on and bought some dinar even though I was very skeptical about it ever doing anything. Being a trucker and running convoys I have seen the alot of really ugly stuff here. And just could not believe that this could be anything like Kuwait. But a couple years ago it really started to turn around and there seems to be alot of hope here now. I really think that we are close to seeing this pay off soon. I got more last year even though my wife was against it. Maybe if it RV/RI's soon I can afford that divorce I've always wanted. LOL Hang in there folks! The miracle will happen.~~~~~Bluto
  20. Thanx Twestbrook What a miricle it would be if it really happened. The whole world needs this. Keep the faith!!!!!!! ~~~~~Bluto

    RV / RI / RD

    A LOP of 3 zeros would be a devalueation of 1000% if done before a RV. In my opinion I think the LOP is only the idea of pulling the large notes out of circulation, probly to be done after a RV and smaller notes are availible. What is certain though is that anything is possible. And no one really knows. So for me I just I just hang on a wait. The ride will come to an end someday , then we all can move on to the next adventure~~~~Bluto
  22. It is my understanding that after a RV/RI all wages and prices for goods would be readjusted to reflect the new value. So if there making 1 million dinar a month now and we get a 1 to 1 RV they would be then payed 1000 dinar a month. JMO
  23. While you were watching the oil spill, the New York failed terrorist bombing and other critical crises, Hillarious Clinton signed the small arms treaty with the UN. OBAMA FINDS LEGAL WAY AROUND THE 2ND AMENDMENT AND USES IT. IF THIS PASSES, THERE COULD BE WAR On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms. The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened. Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillarious Clinton is committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws. Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public. We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment. This has happened in other countries, past and present! THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A FALSE WARNING. As sure as government health care will be forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control. Read the Article U.S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto. The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.

This is a very serious matter! Silence will lead us to Socialism!!!
  24. It is 3am in the morning here on the 14th as I post this. I have nothing new in the last day or so but I am at a base about 100 miles from Baghdad. The only news we get is from the Armed forces network. Nothing local except what we can get online. Really hopeful that there is excitement in the streets could be the sign we have been looking for.
  25. I would be willing to bet that the folks high on the food chain at CBI know something. And perhaps they would share it with the higher ups at other major banks. So who knows?
