Talabani Lives!!! A video of Talabani voting!

Happy Monday Dinarians!

To quote Mark Twain….

“The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated”

I just watched the Video of Talabani voting – he is in a wheelchair, and does look like a stroke / heart attack survivor – but he clearly is alive!  

Thanks to both Marc G who posted it in our Skype Room, and also to Red Lily who originally found the video and told Marc.

That is amazing he is still alive!  I really thought he was dead! I hope he gets a front row seat when they HANG that bastard Maliki!!!!

Two more days to go before the Iraqi Elections!

Happy Weekend!!!

Well we’ve had just about everything in our Dinarian Community – but to our knowledge we have not had a “boxing bout” between Hack Gurus and Newshounds!!!

And since we just love to “beat up” (metaphorically) on Hack Gurus when we came across this PUNCH ……. COUNTER-PUNCH  we just could not resist the urge to repost it and get your feedback (anonymous form at the bottom) once you have read both sides of the issue on “INTEL vs. NEWS”.

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!!!

UPDATE: June 25, 2012 –  Continue reading

HOT NEWS!!! Completion of the Iraqi National Agenda of the Meeting within 48 hours!!!

HAT TIP:  Anonymous Email

This is HOT News!!!  We were not expecting the Preparatory Committee to have this Agenda ready so soon!!! 

Remember the Preparatory Committee has members from each of the large political blocks to negotiate this agenda, so for them to sort out the differences co quickly, is very encouraging!!!

Therefore, if they agreed on this new agenda for their “bosses” like Maliki, Talibani, Allawai and Barzani – this is really heading us in the correct direction toward our long-awaited RV.  😉

But, CAUTION, the Hack Gurus will suddenly be posting their “super secret intel sources – which (obviously) cannot be divulged and be calling “for the RV” over these next 2 or 3 days…. (right Okie, Bondlady, Miskebam, if that is your name… LOL!!!)

Deputy Kordestani: Preparatory Committee meeting this week; President Talabani date Conference next week

HAT TIP: The Currency News Hound

We liked this article because from our interpretation it looks like Papa Talibani has gotten the three boys (Maliki, Allawi & Barzani) to come together “next week” to meet and to get the National Meeting done!!!

We feel this is the key, Shabibi of the CBI needs to see a stable Gov and the passage of the Oil and Gas law, before he will bless Iraq and the rest of the world with an RV of the IQD!!!

On that note, tell the hack gurus like OOM, Bulldog75, footforward and JonnyWG to go pound some Iraqi Sand with their crap “intel”!!!! BTW, Okie’s plane missed the “Friday” runway now three weeks in a row!!!

BREAKING NEWS: Barazani back in Erbil – Now can we get on with it???

HAT TIP:  Anonymous Email

We saw a report the other day that Barazani was back in Erbil, but this article is affirming that Barazani had stayed in Turkey to meet with Hashimi.

Regardless, lets hope that now Papa Talibani will get his “boys” together in the same room and let them have at it and work out all this political crap that has been escalating lately!

We should be watching for news coming out either this weekend (hopefully) or at least next week that Talibani has gotten Maliki, Allawi, Barazani together!  If we see this and the news ends up being a positive consensus of agreement, then folks, perhaps the chance for us seeing the RV soon…..  Will be greatly improved!!!  😉
