Deepwoodz   Article:   “Al-Sudani: Iraq is witnessing a new reality today in the private sector”   MOU’s and Sovereign Guarantees…impossible without sovereign currency that has purchasing power.  We’ve learned Iraq’s contracts have recently been adjusted so that payment is made in dinar…If so, contracts in the billions…paid in dinar, would require assurances that the exchange rate would not move in a negative direction…It may even go so far as to give an exchange rate. If the rate were to move negatively, the foreign contractors would lose out because the value of the agreed upon amount in reflection to their home currency would also be less. That’s a no go…Sounds freakin fantastic.

Militia Man   Al Sudani…first off he shows up to Washington DC, big motorcade, heads over to the Pentagon the following day, big motorcade, comes to Michigan, what did he have?  Big motorcade.  He has the attention…The achievements the statesman Al Sudani has shown everybody is flat-out phenomenal…
