Daguire: President Trump and first lady Melania Trump makes surprise visit to US troops in iraq...
Smitty76: He could be there obviously to visit the troops but to give his approval of the new government.
Briona: He would not go there without a good reason, so I am expecting good results from it.
Derosgirl: Why Trump in Iraq?(of all places during the holidays) Seems something big is to happen or he would just sent some dignitaries over there!! IMO.
DTyler: Could also be just this simple of "Thank you" to the Troops for their work..............and Iraq for making Christmas an official holiday. Then of course, revisit timed withdrawal of troops and BASE visits..............we hope it is for what we are waiting on, but who knows.
Eccle519: Regardless what we think, Trump is an economic mind wanting economic results for the US. You know Mahdi and the bigs will be there to greet. Talking points will definitely be Isis, Forming the GOI and Economic reform...Trump knows Iraq is a cash cow!! Two birds with one stone...see troops and squash the can they keep kicking! Imo.
this latest just in...
The exchanges has already started @ $4 per IQD.
Thousands of Tier 4(that's us) have already been paid.
Treat as a rumor. Not verified. Your opine.
24 July 2018 Bruce The Goose:
The IMF has been giving Iraq funds/loans for months now. They been giving them money. Finally yesterday at 9am in the morning, President Trump made a call to the IMF and told them not to do any more loans or funds to Iraq.
They need to get off the side and go ahead and RV their currency officially not just in Iraq, not just on their Qi cards. Go ahead and do it so that it is put out an announcement with the rate and then they will not need IMF funds anymore. There is more to it.
However, the IMF is holding an amount for Iraq over $5Billion dollars that is gaining interest in the $4 million plus range a day range now, but they are not going to get it until after they revalue or announce the revaluation.In the same way President Macron from France is holding there $129 Billion dollars going to Iraq that they will not give them any until two hours after they announce their RV. I am sure there are other countries as well.
Bruce: What else has been going on? Isn’t it interesting that last Saturday over 15,000 customers of banks in the United States in 73 cities were contacted to come in and do exchanges for the Iraqi dinar. Wow! Last Saturday. Now many too the banks on it? 6,000 people exchanged just under $4 in the United States in 73 cities. What is significant about this is it is not a buy back rate. It is not going to be the rate we are going to see on the front screen, but it was a rate that was given to these people.
Luigi says...Don't shoot the messenger.
Could Bruce The Goose & Judy Lyington be one & the same? Just asking.
They both claim Trump-UST just ordered the release the funds.
Rollout starts from East to West. What ever happened to Moose Jaw?
Treat this as a rumor. Not varified. Your opine.
