HITMAN UPDATE, 2 MARCH

For the Gurus.....   take this avenue and see if you change streets.......  

It RI 's at 3.22 and then free floats from that point..... Do you think that if it is 1 to 1 that they will stop using the USD?.....   Doubt that .... the Iraqi population will protest even more if the chance to get back to before the war does not happen,,, Second....   the ego of being the President of OPEC, having the largest oil deposits and the fastest growing world economy is major ..... they will be laughed at by all at 1 to 1 by all the Arab nations...Did Maliki teach anyone about Iraqi ego?..   Maybe the 1 to 1 people have need to get off the dime and get another flashlight so they can see the other options on the board......

DINAR GURUS UPDATE, 2 MARCH

3-2-2013  Newshound Guru Arthur  I WILL NOT CALL A MONDAY RV....I WILL ONLY SAY CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR THIS TO HAPPEN ANY DAY NOW.

3-2-2013  Intel Guru Panda Express   What we think we are looking at:  1.  Rates should show up on Saturday morning...4 confirms.  2.  Well Fargo is the bank...5+ confirms.  3.  Monday is the exchange date...2 confirms.  4.  This weekend exchange...2 confirms.  6.  Wells Fargo screens are live again...3 confirms.  7.  Codes are loaded at Wells Fargo...2 confirms.  In summary:  Rates should show up on Saturday morning.  We should have banking locations by Sunday at the latest and exchange by Monday at the latest.  This thing is so done you can stick a fork in it_____________________________________


3-1-2013  Intel Guru Steve1   Question...."what's your opinion on time of rv? It has been told/rumored that the rv would happen around 3am our time/ eastern time."  Answer.... Now, having it be delayed this long it could be very quickly. Remember the Kurds budget was to start Monday and they can not do anything without the Federal Budget opened and disbursed. So, your guess will be just as good as anyone else right now. I will maybe know more after it is approved. I am also being told by another contact that this vote will be a "historic one", so I can safely assume that the media will share right away, especially with protest and other major events scheduled to go off against the government. Could it happen within hours, you bet, will it, maybe, should it, absolutely. Time is now against them not for them, so the faster the move, the quicker peace will be restored and confidence with the citizens.  [post 2 of 2]

3-1-2013  Intel Guru Steve1   Question...."what is your opinion on the level of confidence, based on the mood of your contacts, that this vote will in fact take place on Monday (Iraq Monday) assuming nothing crazy happens between now and then."   Answer... Our contacts are saying 100%, but they told me that last time and then the unexpected happened at the last minute between Maliki and the Kurds. That shocked many people. Question... "What times the vote on Monday?"  Answer... I was told 10 am Monday Iraqi time.   [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

3-1-2013  Intel Guru Blaino  all the big financial (international) players are in conference to accomplish this at this hour, no doubt, it's mainly video conferencing..."jack", "christine"...All the major players...

3-1-2013  Intel Guru Okie_Oil_Man    DON'T DESPAIR--THINGS ARE STILL VERY IMMENENT--SMALL PROBLEMS LAST NIGHT THAT WAS SETTLED. WE ARE ON VERY HIGH ALERT---

3-1-2013  Intel Guru Blaino   more and better confirms hitting NOW.... Hang in THERE...Text  #1: reval warning!! The meeting of meetings underway now, rates live on bk screens at last, need "ok" to tellers yet then all good! Text #2: reval warning ii, can't share rates yet, but great numbers! Vnd is incl too.

3-1-2013  Intel Guru SteveI    Once it is passed our guys will call us regardless of our time and share the news.  With this being said, pray for the best and prepare for the worst. With all of the pressure from citizens, I just cannot see how they will not follow thru this time. Major consequences will follow if they do not.  The parliament will be meeting Saturday but they will be voting and passing other laws, just not the 2013 budget.  So, this was the huge news I have been waiting for. Now I am excited beyond belief.  [post 2 of 2]

3-1-2013  Intel Guru SteveI   It brings me great pleasure that we have received word from our contacts in Iraq that the 2013 Federal Budget will be voted on Monday. The reason you are seeing Saturday and some articles are reporting Monday is that the Kurds wanted to do this Saturday but the other blocs wanted to wait until Monday. Go figure.  According to our sources, all blocs, and I repeat all blocs, Maliki, Allawi, Kurds, etc. are all on the same page now and all differences have been worked out, therefore as it stands now, the vote is on for Monday (Iraq's Monday not our).  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

3-1-2013 Newshound Guru Adam Montana   The one thing they did NOT lose is their natural resources. While they are working to restabilize their government and society in general, the value of their currency has remained at a low level... in fact, TOO low in many of our opinions. Obviously there is no guarantee that it will ever get back to the previous rate, but I believe it will. That's why I'm here speculating on it.  [post 2 of 2]

3-1-2013  Newshound Guru Adam Montana   [An article stated that in modern times the biggest overnight RV of a currency was 35% or so. If the dinar RVed to even a .10 rate, that would be an approximate 10,000% increase if my math is right. Would an overnight RV of this magnitude be possible? Plus imagine the chaos at the banks as thousands rushed to cash in. Would it be more likely that the dinar become tradeable at or just higher than the present rate and be allowed to float upwards towards the .10 (or hopefully higher) rate over time?]   Of course it is possible. It may be more likely that it would simply grow slowly over time (such as may happen if they raise the rate to 1000:1 later this year as they have mentioned a few times), but it's also important to remember that they LOST the same percentage of value on their currency when Saddam was removed.  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

3-1-2013  Intel Guru SteveI   One of the most powerful articles was "Ahmed Faizullah: the need to draw on the expertise of international banks to support the banking sector".   International means only one thing, the CBI is ready to revalue their currency to move this country forward. This is huge folks. Why would any international bank want to deal with Iraq with a currency valued at .00086 to the dollar unless it becomes more valuable and there are business opportunities in it for the banks. [post 2 of 2]

3-1-2013  Intel Guru SteveI   I truly believe this time we will see it being passed. God help the GOI if it is not.  I am still waiting on a call to see how the meeting went between Maliki and the Kurds over the defense budget. That as the true sticking point, not the oil.  Please trust us as we know exactly what is going on in Iraq regarding the process.  I hope to bring you some wonderful news in the coming days, hopefully starting with the budget vote passing, and I think things will move so fast that I may have just enough time for the rate notification.  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

3-1-2013  Intel Guru Blaino   We get some of the best info from 1of the big 4 banks, some of the best intel out there & according to a list received, 22 currencies are going to go hot & live & tradeable tomorrow [Friday].  Our 2 favorites are on that list.  As long as there are no glitches or delays, we expect to see this.  In some regions, they were given notice that they would be working for the next 4 weeks on weekends and all leaves and vacations have been cancelled.

3-1-2013  Intel Guru TerryK   A lot of things going on it Iraq.  The magical trigger has to be pulled by Christine Legarde making her announcement.  She will make her announcement tomorrow [Friday] or Sunday.  You won't see a massive RV of all 194 countries.  There is the primary 11 and then they will come out in baskets of 30 and will come out 1 or 2 baskets a month.  I got verification from my Well Fargo contact that there are codes in the system for the IQD and VND.  All they are waiting for is an email from their corporate office to tell them to activate the codes.  They are waiting for the IMF to pull the trigger and the UST will contact all the Central Banks and tell them to go ahead with it.  It's closer now than it's ever been.  The Dong is showing .478 at the bank level, but it is being traded on the investment side at a 1.19 value and are expecting it to go over $2 in 6 months and that's on the investment side of Wells Fargo.
 They want it to get back to the $2.22 rate.

 [johng] Blaino call last night  with Panda Express:

....blaino

[Readynow] Jester do you agree with Panda Exp. opinion of where we are 

 [Jester] Readynow absolutely....

[SemperFi] Will the CE go un-noticed to the public, or are we looking for a good "Cover Story"?

[Jester] SemperFi we already have a good cover story...

[Robertprofessor] Maybe this morning all is as it's really supposed to be, but I did wake up thinking we'd have more confirmation, maybe rates known, etc. However, some banks are open on Saturdays here and some are not; might be a factor, IDK. This is global, so answers maybe elsewhere.

 [lvn42day] Actually, if I was WF; I would not want it released until after the banks are closed on Saturday. Then Sunday is 'call for appt. day' and Monday is CE. Otherwise, some would show at bank on Saturday.

 [kenbo] Robertprofessor i am in the thought that our banks being open or shut doesnt really matter.. many differ however

 [heyu288] And the Beat goes on.... and the beat goes on..... drums keep poundin rhythm to the brain.... la da de da Chatrleston was once the rage uh hunn HIstory has turned a paged un hun The mini shirts the current thing un hun.. and the beat goes on...

 [weimar] lvn42day if I was the bank, I would want it to hit saturday afternoon, take calls, do a few select folks sunday and have appts mon-fri

 [subnet52] lvn42day agreed, that would give the Dinarians time to gather their emotions....becuz they would not be ABLE to go to the banks....just sayin

 [unclebuddy] Its always that left coast time that slows everything down. lol

[kenbo] Robertprofessor agreed since it is a global event.. but.. I have been wrong once or twice in my life lol

[hopeinwyo] crossways Yes, it has changed from what we were first told. We were told we were in driver's seat.could get up and leave if we didn't like what bank told us, terms, we were in the driver's seat. Sounds very different. Wondering if we will have to keep $ in their banks for a determined amt of time.

 [kenbo] hopeinwyo ifn so.. they will not get all my currency

 [SemperFi] Jester ...it'll be interesting to see how it's played out

[spiritfilled] hopeinwyo possibly ..maybe up to 25%...IMO

 [hopeinwyo] kenbo But I wonder if we will know the terms before our appt

 [kenbo] hopeinwyo im thinkin so we wait for the email

 [kenbo] hopeinwyo im sure the phone call appt will tell us what we need to know

[crossways] hopeinwyo I expected all along that we would probably be asked to keep a certain % in their bank for an X amount of time but not this new entrapment..."your money is ours once you make appt". Or if you get in a wreck and don't show...

[crossways] hopeinwyo I have my fork ready grin lol

[paradisegirl] I just say let's see the e-mail and go from there. All is speculation before then.

[best1154] paradisegirl yes i have to agree with you, there is no reason to speculate when we dont have the facts, and worrying for no reason

[paradisegirl] best1154 I just listen to all presented, keep what makes sense and file it away until the time comes. I think the currency exchange will not be difficult.

[kenbo] paradisegirl Im thinking that way too.. its the after glow that will be way more difficult

[paradisegirl] kenbo but we will have plenty of time to take care of our asset protection issues, etc. I think we will all decompress over the early weeks after this happens

 [owl] paradisegirl paradisegirl IF peeps think about it, it is WHAT banks do. The "difficulty" will lie in the WAY we present ourselves...our expectations and personal preparations ...i,e, KNOW what sort of account structure etc

[paradisegirl] owl professional behavior on our part is important, you are so correct

Iraq FM Zebari discusses Iraq and the future of CH VII sanctions, 2 march

Iraq FM Zebari discusses Iraq and the future of CH VII sanctions
Iraqi Foreign Minister Zebari: CBI might keep tired under Chapter VII for four more years
2013/03/01 21: 45
The Iraqi Foreign Minister on Friday, the likelihood of the survival of Iraq under the provisions of section VII for another four years, because the survival of three files under the provisions of this chapter relate entirely to Kuwait, while the renewed trust of Iraqi funds depends on the capacity of Iraq to protect its money, banking and financial situation of Iraq “, set the” Although “we dream big and great” country.
Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said in an exclusive interview to (run), “there is no veto Iraq prevents UN from out of the provisions of Chapter VII, as some believe, that Security Council resolutions are binding on all States, not only Iraq, must be implemented and applied by everyone.”
Is subject since Iraq (1990) of Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations, imposed after the invasion of Saddam Hussein’s regime, the State of Kuwait in August of the same year, this item allows the use of force against Iraq as a threat to international security, as well as to freeze large amounts of stock in banks to pay compensation to those affected by the invasion, and it prohibits the import of equipment that could be used in advanced military industry.
And Zebari said “Iraq is out of the majority of the provisions of Chapter VII and binding decisions of the Security Council in areas such as leaving a weapons of mass destruction and disarmament, sanctions and blockade and the oil-for-food program,” he said, adding that “these files are governed by more than 60 international decision of the Security Council, all of which were completed during the past years.”
Zebari stressed that the remaining decisions impeding the exit of Iraq of the provisions of this chapter are “decision required Iraq to install international land and maritime borders between the two countries and we are now, and thesecond is Iraq is required to pay 5% of oil sales in compensation to victims of the invasion, Yasser’s confrontational effects of Kuwait, and called for war reparations, and Iraq has prompted tremendous and we are willing to pay the rest over the next three years, the third aspect is the humanitarian file on the missing and prisoners of war and Kuwaiti property and this also Among the provisions that have been imposed on Iraq Chapter VII. “
The Iraqi Foreign Minister said, “I think that Iraq could pay the whole balance of 13 billion, we if we can pay it all today or tomorrow we will emerge from this file means that if the Iraqi Government will pay this amount was fully this year will close this file, if you do not pay the amount and payroll deductions from Iraq each year part means that after three or four years before we met.”
The Foreign Minister said “we have made a major diplomatic effort with members of the Security Council, with Russia and Kuwait, that we are committed to implementing the provisions of Chapter VII, it is not reasonable to keep Iraq governed until we find another Kuwaiti prisoners or missing or remains, it means that Iraq will remain forever under this chapter, the Kuwaiti side to understand this, we concluded the mandate of the Special Coordinator, who follows and reports to the Security Council, and we are now working on another coordinator not returned and had discussed with the Kuwaiti side, they Understanding. “
And “so we now walk the rest forward and there is a time and international reports to the Security Councilwe believe that came out Iraq from Chapter VII not only certain things, so we won the battle, the battle of Iraq concludes wars and invasions, blockades and sanctions, not only things and is also in the process of final processing.
In another context, the Iraqi Foreign Minister during the (range) that “the issue of lifting the guardianship on the Iraqi funds annually based financial capability”, but said “sometimes we dream we a great country but put Iraq financial and banking and Central Bank is tired.”
Zebari said “we are free and we can raise our guardianship on those funds, we can keep it, as the United States maintained its claims on that money,” he said, adding that “the issue of renewing the Iraqi decision of guardianship must be Bush himself.”
The Iraqi Foreign Minister, speaking to the (range) “because of the many requests for the country of persons and companies, we want to provide the greatest possible protection for such funds, Iraq does have a lot of money in several banks, with the existing base amount in the United States.”
Provides extended protection of Iraqi funds deposited in (Development Fund for Iraq), protection of those funds from any fake or real lawsuits by companies and individuals, and provides support for Central Bank funds, the proceeds of Iraqi oil, which is an important artery for the Iraqi economy.
The establishment of the Development Fund for Iraq DFI in May 2003 by the administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority and has been recognized by the United Nations Security Council resolution 1483 and following the dissolution of the Coalition Provisional Authority in June 2004, the US Government was mandated by the Government of Iraq to manage the Iraq Development Fund, funds available for reconstruction projects, and the u.s. Department of Defense, Department of the Fund on behalf of the u.s. Government, the delegate had been withdrawn as of December 31, 2007.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, on 25 June, the Committee to protect Iraqi funds abroad to clarify the fate of more than 17 billion dollars were confiscated, seized or dragging them from the Development Fund for Iraq since 2003 as soon as possible, calling on the Iraqi authorities and the u.s. Government to provide the necessary support for the success of its mission.
With the Parliamentary Commission on integrity in the 20 of June, losing $ 17 billion dollars for the Iraq Development Fund during the period of Civil Governor Paul Bremer, describing the period as “many mysterious and corruption”, referring to send a request for the United Nations to investigate and recover stolen money “.
And the head of the Office of financial supervision by Abdel Basset Turki in the Parliament session held on 18 April last, the waste of more than 17 billion dollars of Iraq funds during the administration of former US civil administrator Paul Bremer.
The u.s. investigator said Stuart Bowen, mid-June, the disappearance of 6.6 billion dollars of reconstruction funds in Iraq eight years ago is that they may be stolen, describing it as “the biggest heist in the history of America, noting the existence of a third investigation of the fate of those funds.
The Finance Committee in the House of representatives earlier said during a meeting of the Council on the initiation of prosecution of an estimated $ 40 billion from Iraq vanished during the US civil administrator for Iraq.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki announced, on 6 December, the United Nations has promised to expedite the end files related to lift Iraq from Chapter VII, and that Iraq has fulfilled all its obligations and only issue with Kuwait, stressing that they, in turn, on its way to solution.
The (UNSC) Council was likely to support Iraqi-Kuwaiti relations, at (11/11/2012) United Nations to vote to lift Iraq from Chapter VII over the Iraqi-Kuwaiti requestconfirmed that Kuwait had informed international cooperation of Iraq fully in this area, stating that the Kuwaiti Prime Minister’s visit to Iraq will be early next month to sign the final Protocol, while Kuwaiti MPs welcomed Iraq’s exit from international sanctions, stressing at the same time that debt implications need to be approved by Parliament to repeal or reduction.
Alternate article:
Zebari: may remain under Chapter VII for another four years
Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari about the possibility of the survival of Iraq under the provisions of Chapter VII for another four years, because the survival of three files fall under the provisions of this chapter relating to all of Kuwait.
Zebari said “the rest of the decisions impede exit Iraq from the provisions of this chapter is” obliging Iraq install the international border land and sea between the two countries, and the second is the decision required Iraq to pay 5% compensation from oil sales to fund victims invasion, either third aspect is file humane for prisoners and missing persons and Kuwaiti property. “
“I think that Iraq can pay the entire remaining amount of 13 billion, but if we did not pay the amount was deducted from Iraq each year part means that after three or four years so that we can Aevaúh.”
On the other hand, said that Foreign Minister renewed the custody of Iraqi funds depends on the capacity of Iraq to protect his money, and described the banking and financial situation of Iraq “tired.”
Zebari continued “We can raise our guardianship for those funds, as we can keep it, that the United States also maintained turn that money from the claims.”
And that “because there are many demands on the country of people and businesses, we want to provide the maximum amount of protection to those funds, Iraq has a lot of money distributed in several banks, with the principal amount exists in the United States.”

The Currency Newshound Commentary: Zebari article regarding Chapter VII, 2 march


The most recent article titled “Iraq FM Zebari discusses Iraq and the future of CH VII sanctions: CBI might keep tired under Chapter VII for four more years” (Reference LINK) is quite lengthy and can be confusing. So I will do my best to provide some clarity and my personal opinion.
In the fourth paragraph, Zebari states that Iraq has been removed from majority of the Chapter VII provision. This is something we all have been aware of for quite sometime.
In the fifth paragraph Zebari elaborates what issues remain that keep Iraq binded to Chapter VII sanctions. He lists 1) Install land and maritime borders between Iraq and Kuwait, 2) Iraq is required to pay Kuwait 5% of oil revenues to Kuwait victims of the invasion, and 3) the discovery of missing Kuwait prisoners of war and Kuwaiti artifacts.
In the same paragraph, Zebari explains Iraq and Kuwait are currently working closely to resolve land and maritime (sea) borders. He further explains in the seventh paragraph Kuwait fully understands it may take several years to locate and discover the remains of missing POW’s and artifacts and therefore Kuwait will not hold that against Iraq. In the fifth paragraph, and in my opinion Zebari explains that Kuwait is requesting Iraq pay the entire war reparation of $13 Billion at once however Iraq sees this as a “tremendous” size debt and has offered to pay the reparations over the next three years. Zebari continues in the sixth paragraph by suggesting that he believes Iraq can pay the $13 Billion owed and if they did Iraq would emerge from Chapter VII entirely (with exception to the technical items regarding missing persons, POW’s and possibly borders).
Zebari caveats himself by implying the UNSC has a grip on Iraq’s Central Bank and monitors its holdings. In the second paragraph he tells the reporters that resolutions made by the UNSC are binding and applied for all countries. He is essentially saying Iraq must fulfill all obligations written in the resolutions – Iraq should not anticipate a pass. In my opinion, in the sixth paragraph Zebari caveats by saying IF Iraq chooses not to pay Kuwait its $13 Billion up front and chooses to pay reparations over the next three years then the UNSC could choose to keep Iraq under Chapter VII sanctions during this period of time – until the reparation is paid in full.
Iraq has been trying to negotiate with Kuwait for several years now to reduce the total reparations owed (See below).
As of January 2012, Iraq owed Kuwait $18 billion and it would appear 1 year later Iraq now owes approximately $13 Billion.  This is a significant debt and a burden on Iraq and therefore Iraq has lobbied Kuwait to reduce the total reparations.  In my opinion, the reporter makes reference to this in the last paragraph of the article when the reporter discusses how Kuwait politicians welcome Iraq’s exit from Chapter VII sanctions however says Iraq still has a financial debt and the proposed reduction would need the approval of the Kuwait Parliament.
Over the past twelve months several articles have been published (including the article we discuss now) eluding to Iraq’s departure from Chapter VII sanctions.  I do believe all of us will agree Iraq has been agressive just in the past six months in trying to find successful steps toward emancipating themselves from UNSC sanctions.  Considering this, I personally view Iraq as eager to emerge from Chapter VII and the last thing they would want is to stay in Chapter VII another day.
Iraqi economist including those in the CBI and Finance Ministry have said Chapter VII places a burden on the nations economy. Banks view the country as high-risk.  International banks are hesitant to invest in Iraq and often refuse to trade with Iraqi based banks.  (See article ). As a result each of them recognize the importance of Chapter VII lifting.
Over the next few days, weeks, and months I expect Iraq and Kuwait as well as the UN will be fully engaged in talks.  According to the article, Iraq should see the Kuwaiti Prime Minister early next month to begin signing certain agreements.  Hopefully by then we will begin to see some clarity regarding the reparation payment and if Kuwait’s parliament will agree to a reduced payment.  Even if the reduced payment is rejected I wouldn’t be surprised to see Iraq pay off the entire debt so to emerge and put Chapter VII in their history books.
I remind you that Iraq emerging from Chapter VII would be a significant event for Iraq and potentially for the IQD.  However there is no certainty Chapter VII is the “magic bullet” needed to make the IQD gain in value. Other items could still need attention such IMF Articles of Agreement IV and XIV, HCL Law, investor laws, etc.
From a personal perspective I see the conditions are promising and encouraging.

STEVE & PEOPLE DINAR: Q&A, 2 MARCH


Q:Goods10: Steve, Thank you for the awesome news you have just given us! It made my stomach turn upside down a few times when I read it. Question....what is your opinion on the level of confidence, based on the mood of your contacts, that this vote will in fact take place on Monday (Iraq Monday) assuming nothing crazy happens between now and then.

Again, thank you for the information you provide us. I can't speak for everyone here but I know for myself I would be a lost, deflated, individual in this ride if it wasn't for you and what you provide to us here! I probably wouldn't be in this investment at this point if I only had the "guru's" to listen to! I started out rough on this site with you and a few others but I have learned my place and I appreciate you not getting rid of me.

Steve1: Question....what is your opinion on the level of confidence, based on the mood of your contacts, that this vote will in fact take place on Monday (Iraq Monday) assuming nothing crazy happens between now and then.

 Answer...Our contacts are saying 100%, but they told me that last time and then the unexpected happened at the last minute between Maliki and the Kurds. That shocked many people.

 Blessings,  Steve
Q: dinarmite, What times the vote on Monday?!

A: Steve1:   I was told 10 am Monday Iraqi time.  Blessings,Steve

*********************

Q:  Lotus5, Please excuse the dumb question, but is anything left after the budget is released that could delay an RV?

A:  Steve1: Not to my knowledge, but I guess we will find out next week huh.

 Blessings, Steve

************************

cbs71, Awesome news!!!  Thanks Steve and Ray!!! I actually feel good about Monday now.

 Have a blessed weekend Steve, Ray and the whole PD family!!!!

Steve1:  I actually feel good about Monday now. <-- br="" makes="" nbsp="" of="" that="" two="" us="">
Blessings,Steve

********************

Q: ready4change, Steve, what's your opinion on time of rv? It has been told/rumored that the rv would happen around 3am our time/ eastern time. Sorry if this has already been covered. Thanks in advance. Ready4change

A:  Steve1: Let's put some of these rumors to bed now. Now, having it be delayed this long it could be very quickly. Remember the Kurds budget was to start Monday and they can not do anything without the Federal Budget opened and disbursed.

 So, your guess will be just as good as anyone else right now. I will maybe know more after it is approved. I am also being told by another contact that this vote will be a "historic one", so I can safely assume that the media will share right away, especially with protest and other major events scheduled to go off against the government.

 Could it happen within hours, you bet, will it, maybe, should it, absolutely. Time is now against them not for them, so the faster the move, the quicker peace will be restored and confidence with the citizens.

 All I have done is pray for the people of that country. If you pray for any other reason, that is just wrong. These citizens come fist, not us and how we will benefit. I feel pretty strongly about that one.

I say we all stick together and finish this in style. Let's be the forum that accomplished one thing, honesty and integrity. I also will affirm my convictions that being consistent is far more rewarding than predicting it will happen every other day and when you do that enough, the odds are in your favor that it will happen.

 You what, after this happens next week, you will see blogs fighting over who was really first. I will tell you right now, we do not want to be first, we just do not want to be wrong. I will be extremely happy to claim last place. Heck I was put into this forum not by choice.

 Hope your questions have been answered.

 Blessings,   Steve
