(Listen to the recording for all of the detailed analysis of the articles discussed after each news article listed below - the following is just a recap and Several Highlights)

CBI is not dealing with Iran as we have seen in the papers - thats Maliki that getting in trouble for that - they have no intention of doing anything but doing regular trade for the electricity that they are allowed to under the sanctions that are there..they don't want to break any of the sanctions -
and that they have the ability now to watch the money which gives them alot of power now to really figure out where things are going and I really think we are going to see a big difference in how the CBI starts to handle themselves..they are slowly but surely gaining the power that they need to manage the economy there
They are educating the people to get them educated in depositing money in the bank using the banking system - big education process so we like to see more of that going on
Goverment - Recap & Highlights

"A high-level U.S. delegation led by Obama or Biden will arrive in Baghdad at any moment"
The source said, "It is expected to visit Baghdad high-level U.S. delegation, headed by U.S. President Obama or Vice President Joseph Biden."
We have talked about the Strategic Framework Agreement....The part that says "The United States and Iraq have signed a framework agreement strategic and comes in one of its clauses, "The parties agree to continue close cooperation in the promotion and perpetuation of military and security institutions, political institutions and democracy in Iraq"
Those institutions happen to be the executive branch...the judicial branch - all the things we set up over there - remember we set this up - we put the framework down - we know how this is supposed to go - we know who is supposed to get the power - we know how it is suposed to be divided up - in this its Mom & Dad have basically come home to beat the step child - to get this under control and we have alot of influence there now with that Strategic Framework - as we come in you kinda get that explained to you a little bit....Well you may want to understand that this is a very important thing you need to do there is to get your government set up - get your ministers in place - you need to have all of this formed - Maliki if you really want to stay and not prosecuted for everything you have coming on here you might want to seat your government - drop your power - and we will take this up after you get everything taken care of so I think this is really pretty cool that this is taking place - very positive for us - you wait long enough someone is going to make that decision for you and basically it is very difficult and very tough to go forward and become a government if you are not going to make these decisions and the expectations are that there is a government that sits there and is very operational....one of my favorite articles of the day
"MP Keywords: future meetings of the blocs will put the final touches on the reform sheet items"

Straight Talkin Mike: People say how long will it take to get things done if and when...let me tell you they have got papers...they have talked about this.....everybody knows what they need...Barzani wants the 140 - Allawi wants his seat at the table - it gives him more power - its very simple - we know what everybody wants - its not hard - its just implementing it - its getting it to the point where everybody gets what they need - these papers all are there - all it is is cutting out the "BS" from Maliki - do what has already been agreed upon - that word 80% is very huge - 80% is about where Iraq is politically - on the Central Banking side creeping closer to that 90% because they are doing what they need to do inside the banking system - if they guys would just get their government in there and done - then everything goes and moves along and everybodys happy and you could avoid all of these other things going on - how important is all this? You've got security that has had one of the roughest Ramadans with 400 + people killed - outside of that you have got to keep the people safe - you have to give the people some wealth - you've got to keep the unemployment down - and create entrepeneurship - its not a complicated ticket to do - its not a complicated recipe to keep things moving in the direction they need to move - but I will tell you - you can complicate it if you really want to be the person that is in charge of everything and you want to be the dictator then it is there - okay Maliki you are the dictator - here is the problem - here is the money laundering - we were all speculating on his connection to Iran and why he was going over there and we now see the connection to Iran - he really felt like that was his ticket to keep Americans out of his business but eventually that is what drives us to him - because of the things that he is doing - you can't keep this many balls juggled in the air and not have them come after you - the international community is big - you can't go picking on the Central Bank and picking on all the members of your party and not have consquences to pay - I got to tell you it is not too hard to get these things moving ....
What is the theme for today? Status Quo? No that is changing...the tide is turning against Maliki in a very big way and in a very international way - that's HUGE....he took so long to make his decision that it looks like those decisions are going to be made for him very shortly when you have the world community staring you down the face - The Central Bank comes out looking very good in all of this - they have transaparency - they can show where the money goes and how it flows - so if you take Maliki out of the conversation and you look at the year previous - Central Bank wanting to add value to their money at this point in time you have a very different looking situation at this point in time - you want to talk about had you done this earlier what kind of money you would have put in Iran hands what could they have done? He has been able to draw alot of money back out this from the govt. but clearly this embezzlement thing is clearly on the shoulders of Maliki...go figure....
Talabani will be returning but when he returns things will get done
don't be disappointed he has not shown up yet - hes coming...he will be here...he is the President - he will enact the things he needs to enact - its always been my position that he got out of the picture until these things were worked out - now that it is being worked out - he will be back to put the finishing touches on this and I gotta tell you its going to be very interesting when he does show up -with all of these high level people coming in my guess is we might see things move alot more smoothly with someone standing behind you on your shoulders saying yeah you can sign that - go right ahead - good thing to sign that..you need to give up your power....
you've got term limits they need to pass - there are a few other things that they need to do - we are keeping an eye on this part of the government right now - lots going to happen here very shortly - Parliament is going to be back in session shortly -- lots of things that need to get done very quickly - they will get them done - the crisis is in their back yard and everybody is looking at them - very much time for them to get their crap together to put it bluntly as we go forward.....but it is all good news
And there you have it...
