ZsaZsa10:  Following is a story from a very good friend of mine that I received on July 11.  Enjoy!

Just wanted to share a little story with you guys, Xxxxxxx is out of town working and while checking into a hotel, a Sargent from the US army was behind him waiting to check in.

He had just come back from leading his troops into battle against Isis in Mosul.

Xxxxxxx only asked him if he thought Mosul had been taken back and did he think Iraq would become international.

He relied, Ooooohhh Yessss, if you have some of that dinar money your gonna be just fine, in about 3-4 months.

Whats funny is Xxxxxxx never mentioned the dinar to him at all.

RVDoc: Frank,  Here is what I mentioned tonight on chat, and I am hoping you can share some thoughts on two questions.

There are those who are newbies and those who actually may not have a clear understanding on the requirements of lifting of sanctions, the full implementation Iraq needs, etc..  but still I ponder these questions as to Internationalism and function of the IQD with respect to the RI or  RV.

1.  We know that the sanctions imposed on Iraq came with the creation of new money and a rate that was set or imposed on it. Many of us know the state department design and have read the outline for Iraq.  We also know the purpose of sanctions is to effect international flow of money.   It is an impingement and punishment and a way to stop the ability of commerce and use of money for a country.

 I see people give out the question or speculate on if the RI or RV will cause lifting of sanctions.  We realize that this is not how it works , the UN and the sanctions have specific requirements, and they are all being addressed, but not completed yet.

So here is what I realize, at least in my awkward mind,, when we see Russia under sanctions, it does not impose a rate devaluation or go as far as we did with Saddam where we destroyed his money.  In that light, rate can be adjusted or not with sanctions.

So the  new IQD, or not so new now,,,lol,,  is it not possible even though we want it to go hand in hand that they lift sanctions, where they effect the RV even under sanctions and that the sanctions will remain until all requirements are met?  And with our ability to have IQD via the executive order, that we can have the value for our nation, but still there are sanctions that impose international flow of the IQD?

2.  And if so, would it not be possible that it be done that way with regard to the latest sanctions of Russia, Iran and North Korea, which impedes their international flow which may hinder their use of the IQD and any value or interaction of positive gain from the RV?

And can not the sanction of Iraq and those countries give us complete control of these new sanctions for R/I/NK not profiting from the RI or RV?  Ohh wouldn't that be nice??

There is more, but I believe that Abadi wanted the 2 months as a gauge or possible timelines to free Iraq for International, but that does not mean they are as crippled by sanctions as we all think,, IMHO!  It would stop some contracts with Russia and block some input by Iran, very good for the US,, but it would all depend on how severe the flow is impeded by sanctions and the level of sanctions, yes?

Maybe Trump is smarter than many think??
