RE: Bluestar…I was blessed with a phone call from a contact and as a result, I will be at a forum with PM Abadi tomorrow at 5 PM eastern in Washington , DC. I will do my best to ask a 4 part question tomorrow. There is no guarantee that I will be allowed to ask my question, but I will try. I will take notes and have a full comprehension of the results by 8 pm tomorrow.
Frank26: BTW BLUESTAR ………….. If i could ask A a question it would not be when is Iraq going to RV the currency. Instead ……. It would be … ” Mr Abadi Sir … Do YOU want an RV for Your country’s currency in this year of 2017?”
Risk1: A… might not know what an “RV” is….That’s the term we Americans use…IMO………The better question would be…… Are you and the CBI intending to delete the three 000’s from the exchange rate to give your people purchasing power and bring the dinar back to it’s former glory in 2017….IMO….No ambiguity…
