ronscarpa Posted December 4, 2022 Report Share Posted December 4, 2022 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... So, take everything with a grain of salt... Especially if it's from Mark... RON ** Frank26 [ Iraq boots-on-the-ground report] FIREFLY: All the main banks in Iraq are saying they are keeping up with modern technology and...lined up with International standards and acceptance proceedings. FRANK: Holy cow..! ** Pimpy History: What happened between Kuwait and Iraq? August 2, 1990 Iraq invaded Kuwait. They occupied the country around October of 1990. Saddam Hussein told the people in Kuwait they had until October 3rd to exchange their Kuwaiti dinars for the Iraqi dinars. After that the Kuwait dinars wouldn't have any value...Both currencies immediately were devalued. Kuwait's dinar was devalued to protect it from being stolen and sold on the black market. Iraqi dinars were devalued because of the invasion. [Post 1 of 2....REPOSTED] ** Pimpy The Iraqi dinar at the time was worth $3.22...Kuwait dinar...$3.45...internationally the currencies were not usable. Central banks refused to acknowledge the currency and therefore it had no value. The U.S. liberated Kuwait February 28, 1991 and shortly after Kuwait redenominated their currency. So it's not so much the currency was revalued as much as it was re-denominated, which is different...I'm anticipating [Iraq] is going to do the same thing Kuwait did...you'll be able to exchange your old dinars for the new dinars and they'll just reinstate the rate.
