Militia Man  The last two weeks what did they doThey [countries around the world] opened ‘corresponding banks’ with Iraq.  To do whatTo facilitate trade.  Through whatAll these different currenciesIs it fact or is it fiction?  It’s a fact.  I deal in facts.  I deal in truth.  I deal in data.  Article quote:  “With the assistance of the Untied States…there is opening of accounts or correspondent banks which have now reached more than 40 new accounts.”

Frank26  Some of you were asking, Frank, You don’t want me to take my eyes off of my dinars but some of the banks I called said they’re going to send them to another bank and inspect them and then bring them backYeah, well you ask them for the address of that bank and you take your dinars to that bank and let them inspect them in front of you.  Once that’s done and they give you credit and you see your account is credited with the right amount well then you’re happy they can have all the dinars you took to them.  But never separate yourself from your dinars.  There are evil people in this world.   They’ll find a way to steal.
