xyz Guru saint @kaperoni, what are imf documents stating about DAMANDING cbi as the own them? ..... 10-5-2019 Newshound Guru Kaperoni These Iraqi protests have gone on now for several days. This is not what we as investors want to see happen. Delays in reform and investment will be the result. Not good...They need to get investment and companies to come in and put people to work, that is what will raise the value of the currency.

larrykn I hope they can settle the people down soon , this can be either good or bad for the country, they will either get off the pot or stall. we shall see.

madness well then they better do something fast and real fast this is already out of control
madness one thing we might watch is will this lower the value now of the iqd, OR? will it go up in value, getting to be a real sticking situation
Young_SC madness lower the value of the iqd???
Young_SC They are already protesting about not having anything
madness no im saying watch the market on our side, will it go up or down were we stand right now
Young_SC madness not sure if it can decrease much more if its not worth much to begin with on the market side
madness good point
Young_SC Outside of the borders you cant do anything with it technically
Young_SC Its not traded its not on the world stage yet its not being used yet

Young_SC madness not sure why people are focused on instabilty. Give the citizens what they want and everything will be stable again
Young_SC Yes protest will cause ruckus that is the point of the protest
madness and I sure agree with that theory but you have think in the back of your mind, darn its iraq
Young_SC madness If you think its bad now what will happen if the GOI avoids the demands
Young_SC Continues to avoid the demands*
Young_SC You notice how the protest is against the GOI but not the CBI
madness its already out of control and now they even are not listening to there so called holy leaders, oh boy this could go side ways if they get guns in there hands.. makes your wonder God bless our 2nd amendment or our idiots in gov. would do the same to us, this should be a good learning thing

Young_SC madness indeed
Young_SC Mahdi is pro Iran
madness lol yeah I read there under heavy security, good maybe they need to clip a couple of them to get the rest of there attention
Young_SC madness So like i said give what the citizens want
Young_SC Mahdi wants to milk all the money he can get that is the main reason why he does not care for the citizens
madness young fingers crossed, you all have waited so long for this, for it to come to a head like this is not cool,
madness I wonder if we the US will have to step in, plus like I said its really not looking good if you were an outside investor trying to come in and rebuild the country

madness nice post, guess well see what happens, seems to be a pattern and that is there is too many iranians calling the shots and the citizens are pissed, cant blame them, time to run them out, dont see any form of them going international until that happens, hope im wrong but well see
Young_SC The iranian influence needs to go away 100%
Young_SC And by protesting is how it will happen
madness yeah but if the protest ends up in a civil war, there goes your stability and there goes going global and there goes the iqd of doing anything for a while
Young_SC Lol@ civil war
Young_SC It wont get to that brother
Young_SC Angry citizens going against its GOI
madness I hope not but you do have 100 dead and probably counting and 4000 wounded, that does not seem like trying to be a stable country
Young_SC That is sad the death of people protesting
Young_SC Things will turn for the better
madness yeah so lol this could go full borders and then we wont be saying lol well saying this sucks, plus were going to have to chip in funds to keep baxters dime on life support so I hope you are right
Baxter just read where Mahdi has resigned..
madness oh well cool that is good news
madness dont worry baxter your dime has full medical coverage, and a 24 hour nurse watching its back, were all behind you all the way
Baxter thank you...
Young_SC madness Remember this investment is for the iraqi citizens first and foremost with the purchasing power. They do not cater to us citizens need to get what they are protesting. We only benefit when they change the rate, that is all. We here in North America are not catered to
madness I fully understand that, but if all fairness you can say if those iraq idiots GOI had done what they said they would do, it would not have come done to this in the first place, just saying.....
Young_SC madness That is very true
Young_SC Money is the root of all evil
Young_SC Drastic measures need to happen to cut off the corrupt and you are seeing it now
Young_SC Corrupt GOI love the money and willing to steal it away from its own iraqi citizens
madness well were all sitting on the sidelines, all we can hope for is the best, and yes I believe in drastic just so bad so many people have to pay the price
Francis Albert I believe the entire revaluation process was set up by first Invading, second take over the CBI, third hammer the IQD to .00086, fourth control the Country, fifth, set up U.S. bases, and finally revalue the currency so Treasury ends up with Dinar to trade for oil at super low cost till the end of time. The spoils of war
Francis Albert So, to expect that the current "turmoil" doesn't have U.S. fingerprints all over it, IMO, is well, naive.
Francis Albert And if the Iraqi's get a little of their purchasing power back...well, so much the better..keep them happy under a foreign invader
Zig @Kaperoni.....If you happen to be around reading here today Francis Albert would like to converse with you sometime..... :)
Francis Albert Zig..been wanting to connect with Kap here some time to talk about the note count he often mentions and why I believe it is not an issue because of the way I believe the funding will happen.
Tebow the current "turmoil" is totally from Iraq not moving forward. Iraqis are tired of their government doing nothing
