  1. If al-Baghdadi is killed by the Jordanians, the USA should ask for the body. Have it cremated, with its ashes mixed with cement to make a special concrete walkway somewhere at Ground Zero. Engraved in the walkway would be the words "GOD BLESS AMERICA - WELCOME TO NEW YORK" He did say he would see his captors in New York, so there ya go!
  2. Hey, cashing in at 7-11 would be great. I can give them a 25K Dinar note in exchange for a couple of Bahama Mama hot dogs with chili and melted cheese, a big slurpee, and have plenty of cash left over for a packet of 2 Alka Seltzer tablets!
  3. "Calibration" error, huh? I guess that goes hand in hand with dead people voting being classified as a "mortality" error.
  4. As an aside to what I just posted, I can't help being reminded of the following dialogue from one of the greatest films of all time which feeds my unease with the military situation in Iraq: Michael Corleone: I saw a strange thing today. Some rebels were being arrested. One of them pulled the pin on a grenade. He took himself and the captain of the command with him. Now, soldiers are paid to fight; the rebels aren't. Hyman Roth: What does that tell you? Michael Corleone: They could win. I will continue to hold onto my Dinar, but I can't help thinking that it is all a pipe dream.
  5. I hear you, but when you assert that Iraq needs to make a statement showing that they can be taken seriously as a "super country," having a military that is willing to fight and not run (a military, by the way, that is several times larger than ISIS and equipped with US supplied weaponry) would go a long way in showing the world that they could in fact be taken seriously. A country with a military that will not fight can never be taken seriously.
  6. Oh yeah -- the Signature Red is beautiful. Post RV I'm gettin' one...... See you at the charging station.......
  7. This is ridiculous. I'm gong to get to the bottom of this confusion. I just need to charge up the flux capacitor in my DeLorean and travel to the Central Bank of Iraq in Baghdad in 2014. Be right back.........
  8. That float ain't free. That bill gets ruined, and you are out 22 bucks......
  9. To me, a "scam" is an offer to intentionally defraud an investor, where the investor's money is in effect stolen -- never to be returned. The investor loses everything. By contrast, we, as IQD investors, hold a country's legitimate currency which has value. The only way we can benefit from this investment is if there is movement. If the IQD loses value, we lose. If the IQD stays the same, we lose slightly because of the transaction fees. But if the IQD gains value, even slightly, I am no worse off if I had put my money in a savings account earning very little interest. I just can't see the IQD value remaining constant -- something has to give -- and I'm banking on it going up. So, how am I being scammed?
  10. Yeah, I gotta agree with leesburg. The "removing zeros" part is the downer. Basically, I believe they are saying that the "new" IQD will be worth 1,000 times the existing IQD. So if I have a 25,000 IQD note, it will be equivqaent to a "new" 25 IQD note (i.e., the new note with "zeros removed"); and both notes would be worth 25 USD. Our investment does not skyrocket, as we are simply exchanging paper. If there was going to be a substantial RV as we had hoped, that would mean that there would be no reason to "remove zeros." The 25,000 IQD note could skyrocket to, say, a value of 25,000 USD; and the CBI would then have to introduce lower denomination IQD notes and coins in order to effect day to day transactions. There would be no "removal" of zeros in this scenario, just the phasing out of the "triple zero" bills (as they would be impractical to use). I hope that I'm wrong on this. Anyway, I am holding onto my dinars to the bitter end.
  11. The Dinar is the legal tender of Iraq. It is a speculative investment -- but I don't believe the Dinar will go DOWN in value relative to the USD -- so at worst we lose a few bucks in transaction fees. How could this be a scam? Relatively little risk with a possible high return. It's definitely worth a shot....... Sorry Dave, but it's a gamble I am willing to take knowing that I can still get most of my investment back......
  12. Yeah, and the Iraqi Govt. and CBI act like Eddie Haskell -- they are sneaky -- never come out and say what their true intentions are.... :P
  13. "Twilight?" I get it......There are two factions battling over whether the dinar should LOP or RV. The LOP faction is made up of mostly human Iraqis who can transform themselves into wolves, and the RV faction is made up of Iraqi vampires. Looks like a battle to the end, folks......................
  14. This is one helluva thread -- I'm cracking up reading this stuff!!
