HOT NEWS!!! A meeting of the three presidencies held tomorrow in Sulaymaniyah!

HAT TIP: LJ’s Next Step Skype Room

Howdy Dinarian Friends,

Thanks to LJ and his team for digging up this exciting article!

LJ also clarifies the three Presidencies as:



This clip was added to LJ’s Chat room by member “scottsdale”:

“…the three presidencies will meet tomorrow in Sulaymaniya, emphasizing that they will discuss setting up a mechanism for the management of the disputed areas, and the possibility of the formation of the politicians Supreme headed by Iyad Allawi, as well as resolving the security ministries, and to pass a law of oil and gas.”

One observation that we would like to add is we now see a sudden “rush” to really get together and get things done!  We at Mr. IQD feel this is being stimulated by the very recent instability being caused by the riots in Libya, Syria and Egypt!  They also see the tensions between Israel and Iran escalating!

We personally feel that these guys in Iraq are literally “crapping their pants” fearing this kind of social unrest can easily flame up in Iraq – and we are quite sure the recent images of the former leaders of Egypt, Syria and Libya being killed or exiled by their people must be gnawing at their consciousness! 

Lets face it, they must be telling themselves that coming to a resolution by compromise with each other and having an “RV” and increasing the wealth and pride of the Iraqi people is MUCH better than being “run out of town or dead”!!!

Hurry Up and Wait — Current Situation with the RV + Analysis by MrIQD

UPDATE: July 2, 2012 –  Hello hello!  Well, as we said in this original post, we would not be surprised if Maliki would figure out a way to drag this out to early or mid July or beyond.  And, here we are now in to early July!

Are we “happy” it has not RV’d yet – heck NO, we would LOVE for it to have happened already by now!  We must remember that it won’t happen just because some hack guru says it will – this is a major event which depends on many small events to happen first! 

Do we feel we are “close” – yes, based on the events that are reported in legitimate Iraqi news sources, as well as legitimate International news services like Reuters, Wall Street Journal and others. 

Are we willing to buy a “reserve” based on our feelings – absolutely NO!!!  We don’t feel purchasing a “reserve” is ever a good idea.  If you feel you want more IQD, that is for only you to decide when you are ready, just keep in mind that we recommend you just purchase only what you can afford, if any at all!  🙂

The important thing we wish for you to remember is to stay away from hack gurus and their garbage of calling the RV every other week…

Well, in fact, as our new Category segment “This Day In RV History” illustrates bluntly, we feature hack gurus and THEIR WORDS, calling the RV…. But, a full YEAR AGO!!!  So, PLEASE TAKE A STAND, AND PLEASE STOP SUPPORTING THEM, DON’T GO TO THEIR WEBSITES, DON’T CLICK THEIR BANNER ADS, DON’T BUY THEIR CRAP!!!
