I'll add a bit to that... banks aren't going to lose money when there is the option of negative interest. Negative interest is when the banks charge you to keep money in the bank, and what kind of impact do you think THAT will have on Crypto

With the fragility of world affairs today, both politically and economically, the possibility of a complete financial collapse (or at the very least a strong pullback) could be around the corner. 

Cryptocurrency is, if nothing else, a good insurance plan. Everyone should have a little invested. 

Thanks for the post Adam :tiphat:

Thanks Adam! I agree about crypto.....

 

Please educate yourselves about the plan to “level the playing field” as it relates to the US dollar as the global reserve currency. I believe it ties in with this China trade deal. Japan has also just signed trade agreements as it relates to Digital Assets..... not all are created equal. 

 

RTGS (Real Time Global Settlements) is the future and I believe it hinges at this point on XRP

 

Currently .29 cents has been as high as $3.84 in peak of the bull market in late 2017-18. 

 

IMO it will become the global bridge asset to tie all these RTGS currencies together similar to gold but settles in seconds. 

 

Please do your research. Lots of change in the air for those that have truly been following the markets. 

 

Federal Reserve has been pumping 60-100 billion a day into the repo markets and treasury markets trying to keep the global economy afloat. That liquidity has to go somewhere! 

 

Hope we are close Adam

Rochester has come close to explaining reality for the Kurds. What is still on the table and would significantly change the status quo in the middle East is Israel's plan for it's expansionist dreams. If this pans out then I see the Kurds getting their own Kingdom / State and the other ME nations Balkanized. The dust has certainly not settled nor is the struggle for peace over yet.

Thanks Adam..

 

And you're absolutely correct of course in regard to the following:

 

Quote

So, this current news cycle we are reading and hearing about involving "the Kurds" isn't specifically about Iraqi Kurds

End Quote

 

Yes....Turkey / Erdogan is assaulting  and killing right now only Syrian Kurds  (men, women , children)....Right now.....

Trump authorizes sanctions against Turkey amid Syria incursion, calls for end to its 'destabilizing actions'

 

By Gregg Re | Fox News
 

 

 

Trump, lawmakers vow 'big sanctions' against Turkey are coming

The White House signals they are ready to act as Turkey escalates force in Syria; John Roberts reports from Washington.

President Trump announced Monday afternoon that he will soon issue an executive order imposing sanctions against Turkey for its "destabilizing" offensive in Syria, amid a bipartisan outcry over the president's troop pullback earlier this year that endangered U.S.-aligned Kurdish forces.

The sanctions followed the president's Oct. 7 threat, when he warned that "if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!)."

In a statement posted to Twitter on Monday, Trump announced that steel tariffs would "be increased back up to 50 percent," and the U.S. will "immediately stop negotiations ... with respect to a $100 billion trade deal with Turkey."

The order would enable "powerful" additional sanctions against those who "may be involved in serious human rights abuses, obstructing a ceasefire, preventing displaced persons from returning home, forcibly repatriation refugees, or threatening the peace, security, or stability in Syria,' Trump wrote. Current and former Turkish officials, as well as anyone contributing to "Turkey's destabilizing actions in northeast Syria" might be targeted, Trump said.

Remaining U.S. troops in northeast Syria will be withdrawn as planned, Trump said, and redeployed "in the region to monitor the situation and prevent a repeat of 2014," when ISIS made major territorial gains.

 

In separate tweets, the president said he would "much rather focus on our Southern border" than the conflict in Syria.

Trump also emphasized that Syria "wants naturally to protect the Kurds." The New York Times reported that a deal between Kurdish forces and Damascus – which was announced Sunday evening – would enable Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces to attempt to regain a foothold in the country's northeast.

"An agreement has been reached with the Syrian government – whose duty it is to protect the country's borders and preserve Syrian sovereignty – for the Syrian Army to enter and deploy along the Syrian-Turkish border to help the [Syrian Democratic Forces, SDF] stop this aggression" by Turkey, the SDF, which is a primarily Kurdish militia, said in a statement.
 

The developments came as graphic images of violence directed at Kurds circulated on social media.

Turkey has justified its ongoing invasion of northeast Syria to the United Nations by saying it's exercising its right to self-defense under the U.N. Charter, according to a letter circulated Monday.

Ankara said the military offensive was undertaken to counter an "imminent terrorist threat" and to ensure the security of its borders from Syrian Kurdish militias, whom it calls "terrorists," and the Islamic State extremist group.

 

KURDS ANNOUNCE DEAL WITH DAMASCUS AMID US PULLOUT

 

Since 2014, the Kurds had fought alongside American forces in defeating ISIS in Syria. But Trump ordered American troops in northern Syria to step aside last week — a move decried at home and abroad as a betrayal of an ally.


 

The U.S. withdrawal cleared the way for Turkey's cross-border attack on Kurdish-held areas in Syria, which is now in its sixth day and has led to quickly shifting alliances.

The military action by Ankara sets up a potential clash between Turkish and Syrian government troops, as the Kurds have now turned to Damascus for support system" rel="">support. It also raises the specter of a resurgent ISIS, since the Kurds will focus their attention on the Turkish advance.


 

Turkey's position is that the main Kurdish group in Syria is linked to an outlawed Kurdish group in Turkey, the Kurdistan Workers' Party. Known as the PKK, that group has waged a 35-year old conflict against the Turkish state that has left tens of thousands of people dead.

Turkey's U.N. Ambassador Feridun Sinirlioglu said in the letter to the Security Council dated Oct. 9 that its counter-terrorism operation will be "proportionate, measured and responsible."

"The operation will target only terrorists and their hideouts, shelters, emplacements, weapons, vehicles and equipment," he said. "All precautions are taken to avoid collateral damage to the civilian population."

But U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Monday that at least 160,000 civilians have been newly displaced and that military action has already reportedly resulted in many civilian casualties.

Sinirlioglu said Syria's eight-year conflict "has created a breeding ground for various terrorist organizations, posing a wide range of threats to the region and beyond."

Despite these claims, many foreign fighters who joined IS originally found their way to Syria through Turkey, and it was widely believed Turkish authorities turned a blind eye at the time.

 

JIM HANSON: U.S. MUST DO THIS TO PREVENT ISIS RESURGENCE


Turkey said it invoked Article 51 of the U.N. Charter, which authorizes military action in self-defense. It also cited six Security Council resolutions since 2001 dealing with the fight against terrorism.


 

"Turkey's national security has been under the direct and imminent threat of terrorist organizations operating in the east of the Euphrates in Syria," Sinirlioglu said.

In addition, he said, an agreement signed by Turkey and Syria in Adana on Oct. 20, 1998 "constitutes a contractual basis for my country to fight all kinds of terrorism emanating from Syrian territory in its hideouts and in an effective timely manner."

Sinirlioglu underscored Turkey's strong commitment to Syria's territorial integrity and political unity.


 

He said the country "will carry out this operation in support system" rel="">support of efforts to facilitate the safe return of displaced Syrians to their homes of origin or other places of their choice in Syria."

He stressed Turkey's "strong commitment" to a political solution to the Syrian conflict based on a roadmap to peace adopted by key nations in 2012 and endorsed by the Security Council in 2015.

      Happy Wednesday, DinarVets!
       
      Here we are, the week before Thanksgiving. To me, "Thanksgiving" is more than just the day in late November when we all gather around with our families and eat turkey and candied yams and green bean casserole and all kinds of other delicious foods... the word "thanksgiving" itself is actually first defined as "the expression of gratitude, especially to God." 
       
      Personally, I don't care what God you love, or if you don't even subscribe to a religion. I have my own beliefs, and they match some of yours. They don't match others... but we should all agree that it is good to "give thanks", to be appreciative for the blessings that we have, and to find reasons to be happy with life.
       
      I'm thankful for this community, the many friendships that have been made here, and I'm thankful for hope.
       
      Turkey and pie are just bonuses.  
       
      (Dark meat for me, please! And keep the celery out of the stuffing, you monster!  )
       
      Iraq is in a fantastic spot right now. YES, they have had a rough 6 weeks or so. The people have been demanding change, and it looks like they are getting it. The GOI is making real changes to their government structure, Parliament is discussing some necessary actions to reduce corruption, restructure their systems, and make a final push towards recapturing their glory days.
       
      I'm sure a lot of people have given up on Iraq recently. Quite honestly - this is good for those of us that have chosen to hang in there. We can draw a very significant parallel between bitcoin and the Iraqi dinar here - it is estimated that 4-5 million bitcoins have been lost forever. I know I personally lost quite a few on an old hard drive, and others have lost even more. I had some on exchanges that went under, and some I just lost the key to. No matter what happened to them, they are gone forever, which raises the value of those remaining to be traded. The same goes for Iraqi dinar - with every "loss" of outside investors, Iraq's obligation to the world decreases, and makes it easier for them to come out with a higher value.
       
      The saying goes, "it's always darkest before the dawn". 
       
      Iraq has seen some dark times. But dawn IS coming... I'm hanging in there, and I'm thankful that you are as well.
       
      Talk soon! And be on the lookout for some Black Friday/Cyber Monday specials around here... they may be coming at a really good time for you.

      Happy Wednesday, dinarvets!
       
      I'm in the middle of a blizzard (ok, it's just snowing a little) and I've got a bajillion fires to put out here at home, so this one will be quick! 
       
      The good news is that I see lots of good reasons to come back with more updates before next Wednesday. In fact, I made a detour to buy a lottery ticket this morning - that's how good I feel about the near future! (Get in the lotto pool here.)
       
      It looks like the protest situation is coming to a head, all while budgetary and other government issues are also moving forward.
       
      The US is putting pressure on Iraq to do something about the protests, which really means the US is putting pressure on Iraq to get their butts in gear. This article I posted states that the Iraqis are grumbling about "US interference", but the fact of the matter is this: if the US is putting pressure on them, they are going to do something. And they are going to do something that moves Iraq in the direction we want, and it's not going to drag out forever. Personally, I see that as a positive sign and I'm looking forward to the next week.
       
      Here's some evidence of what I'm hearing that has me feeling positive... despite the blustering about not wanting US interference, the news says they are doing exactly what we want. Take a look at this and the 12 posts that immediately follow it:
       
       
       

       
      We are looking at a positive situation, friends. I'll be back with more as it develops - hopefully even before the weekend, if the rumors I'm hearing are correct. This can all come to a head very quickly.

      Good morning and Happy Wednesday!
       
      Iraq isn't in the best possible spot this week... we are nearing a month of protests. Mahdi has promised to resign once a successor is named. They are working on a new election law that will likely eliminate a handful of positions in the GOI, and thereby reduce a bit of the corruption. 
       
      Bad news - nothing is happening immediately. It appears that things are settling, but realistically this is going to take a couple more weeks.
       
      On the positive side, the exchange rate is stable in spite of the confusion. I can't imagine a more solid argument for Iraq's future than that! WTI oil pricing is stable.
       
      The work that was being done hasn't backtracked - it's just paused.
       
      Progress made has not been lost - just paused.
       
      On a related note, I've seen a couple of the "rumors" floating around about the dinar being released with "par value" (that means nothing to us), or Chapter 7 being reimplemented, and a few other things like that. I say it's related because when Iraqi news is slow, or negative, the "gurus" always seem to come up with some nonsense like this. That's what it is - nonsense. Just read it, give your favorite newshound or rumor sharing member a "❤️ " for sharing, and take a deep breath - the situation will work itself out, and we'll be back on track shortly.
       
       
       
      Crypto. BTC settles in over the $9000 mark after a nice boost up... remember a few updates ago when I told you I was going to trade some precious metals for crypto and grab a short term gain? China's news a couple weeks ago certainly happened at a good time! China continues to back off on their former ban on crypto, basically stating they are going to support blockchain... if not necessarily supporting bitcoin itself. Either way, this is really good for the crypto world in general. More blockchain projects and support means more adoption, which means more demand, and BTC stands to gain from that both short and long term.
       
      Recommendation for the day: Follow the Crypto section in VIP! You can choose more or less notifications, based on your preferences. Personally - I get an email anytime a new thread is posted, and of course a notification when a post is made in a thread I follow. If you don't know, you can't win. 
       
      Just for fun: Courtesy of the brew, check out this amazing footage:
       
       
       
      That's it for now! It's unfortunate that we're seeing a delay in Iraq, more so for them than for us, but keep your head up and stay positive. This train is still heading the right direction.

      Good afternoon, DinarVets!
       
      Just a short note from me today.
       
      There are positive signs everywhere, but the protests and "civil unrest" that's going on right now has tossed an anchor out on the final progress we'd like to see.
       
      It's not something that will last forever. The face of Iraq, Iraq's current exchange rate, OIL news, and more... all mostly unchanged by the current situation. The country is NOT in a downward spiral... but they are in the middle of an annoyingly long "pause".
       
      Not much more to say at the moment!
       
      We wait.
       
      Some of us patiently... others, no so patiently.
       
      Keep your heads up and kee on smiling! This shall pass, and then 💥 (in a good way. Not 💥 in a bad way. Perhaps that's the wrong emoji for this situation.  )
       
       
       
      - Adam
       
      P.S. How about that resignation we've been hearing about?! Sounds a little like the so-called impeachment process we have here at home in the US of A  
       
      Thread open for comments and questions.

      Good afternoon all!
       
      No weekly update this week. 
       
      Our path to an RV of the Iraqi dinar is pretty clear, so I stay on top of the news and my messages from my people, but I had a major project come to a conclusion over the last week and it kept me away from the computer. I won't say it broke my heart to stay away from the computer for a few days longer than I usually do  
       
      Normal updates resume next week.
