Lots of hype concerning this weekend – I consider it hype, anyway. There is a rumor that the Dinar will revalue on the 9th… started, I believe, by the same people that said the Dinar “had” to RV by the end of 2010.
I don’t see it happening, based on what I’ve learned from my Iraqi, CBI, and other associates. (If the Dinar revalues on the 9th I’ll be the first to say I was wrong!)
Here’s my current position:
Iraq has made some very very VERY exciting headway! They have 90% of what needs to be done…. done. They are very close to being able to revalue the dinar, BUT this is not something that will happen lightly!
Iraq always has and always moved slow. They likely have much planning to do before they can surprise and astound the world with a revalued currency. They would be irresponsible to do it without planning and planning again to cover all contingencies.
Iraq is moving forward, and so is our investment. 2011 looks like it will be a very good year indeed!
Now, here’s the news:

And that’s it for the news!
That is literally all of the legitimate news and “intel” available to us mere mortals… what about all that tells you the 9th will be the date?
Nothing. Friends, don’t count on any date someone tells you and don’t spend your money because you heard a rumor.
The people starting the rumors have been proven to have unsavory pasts. I won’t lower myself to publishing the dirt, but it’s out there for those who want to find it.
The current situation surrounding the Iraqi Dinar online community happens every so often – it’s like Groundhog Day!
A new “guru” with “intel” comes out on the scene, people want to hear what they have to say… eventually they want more of the “spotlight”, so they pretend to have a fight with someone. (Ususally me, haha!) Then they start their own site, and usually they show their true colors within a few months.
Guaranteed dates come and go, intel fizzles and fades, and they do it again to stop people from turning on them. One lie turns into many… most of you have seen it.
I want to take a short moment to thank all of you who see me for who I am, thank you to all of you who support me, and thank you to all of you who post positive comments even though I don’t give dates every week.
Now, if you think Iraq has potential and you are prepared to hang on to your currency, Warka account, or ISX stocks – then by all means, invest what you are comfortable risking! There is a good chance we’ll make a profit, and I think also a good chance that the profit will be substantial!
Cheers, and happy New Year to everyone…
And GO RV!!
