Our Opinion Of Tonight's Presidential Debate

Good evening Dinarian friends!

Hey did you get a chance to watch the Presidential Debate this evening – watching Obama and Romney go at it on foreign-policy???

Well it struck us very weird that Romney and Obama both barely touched on Iraq – don’t you find it odd that they both had excellent points they could have made to attack each other about Iraq and neither of them used it!!!

We found it extremely odd that Iraq was barely touched on in tonight’s foreign-policy debate….

It really makes us wonder why!!! And maybe we’re looking at this with Dinarian goggles but doesn’t it seem strange that neither of them took the excellent opportunity to criticize each other over Iraq and none of them wanted to touch it — not even with a 10 foot pole!

So you know we have Maliki who is out-of-control…. Romney could use that!!

Maliki runs off to Russian buys billions of dollars worth of arms from Putin…. and Romney could use that!!!

Obama just put a surge of troops into Iraq — Romney could use that!!!

How about the fact we just put $12 billion of new arms into Iraq — Romney could have also used that!!!

Why did they ignore the 800 lb Gorilla in the room tonight….. Coincidence maybe….????

Maybe it’s nothing – But in our eyes we find it really “odd”!!! Good night! 🙂

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”!!!

Maliki withdraw confidence from the collapse of the three presidencies + Analysis by MrIQD


Okay, we’ve been wondering what delay tactics and games Maliki will play….

Here we go, at least the first!!!

Maliki is claiming that according to the Agreement of Arbil if they withdraw Confidence from him (Maliki), then they withdraw Confidence from all three Presidents (Maliki, Talabani & Allawai)!!!

Yes, seems stupid, but Maliki is trying to confuse the People of Iraq and the Political Blocks now will have to properly educate the people to know the truth.

This explains these extra days of delay since the 17th!

Close to him: Maliki asked President Talabani, the early convening of National Conference + Analysis by Mr. IQD

HAT TIP:  The IQD Team

Howdy Friends!!!  Monday has some really encouraging news!!!

We picked up this encouraging news today, the only thing we have to caution you about is the part where Maliki says he “agrees”  with what is “constitutional“!  What a jerk!!!!

If you don’t remember from our earlier posts about this, Maliki is using the technicality that the Power Sharing Agreement is not “constitutional” – why is it not “constitutional” – well because he has not “announced it” yet!!!  He signed the agreement, but it has to be “announced” then it is “constitutional”!!!  That is why we say he is being a “jerk”!!!

Well, at least the process is moving forward and Maliki is getting nervous and scared!!!

URGENT NEWS!!! Source: "Parties in the National Alliance will be on the blocks and Khuzaie Shahristani instead of Maliki"

HAT TIP:  Baghdadiya News

Photo Courtesy of Baghdadiya NewsFolks, this is truly HOT NEWS!!!  According to the source, within hours Maliki could be replaced with either Shahristani or Khuzaie as Prime Minister!!!

This shows that the Political Blocks have had enough of Maliki’s antics and stall tactics, not to mention his high levels of corruptions which as you may remember extends to stealing possibly $Billions of dollars from Oil Sales!!!  Which explains why Maliki was so darn mad at the Kurds for making their “own” contracts with Exxon and other Oil Companies! 

But, lets not get too excited, even though replacing Maliki would appear to be a HUGE STEP FORWARD for activating the Power Sharing Ageement, Erbil and eventually our RV of the IQD Currency, we must be patient!  It could happen right away, or it could happen this time next year!    🙂
