    Aloha from Hawaii,
    What is your feeling about the possible revaluation of your Iraqi Dinar this year. I hear so much about this, but I do beleive your country is positioned to become a great nation again. Your thoughts are appreciated.

    A:I believe the Dinar will RV for many reasons. The World is Watching and other countries are close to 3.00 to our USD 1.00 in comparison. There has to be a playing field that most will abide by. The Dinar will RV and at various rates till the dust settles.

    B: Iraq seems closer to being "americanized" (in a good and not greedy way). More Opportunity's for "Positive Growth" are In The Works.

    C: Most things Broken -can be Fixed. Other things Broken must be Replaced. These two things are what will make for JOBS, Fair Wages, and Business Opportunities, not to mention FOOD, Shelter, Clothing Transportation and Clean WATER.

    D: Let's Not Forget that GOD (The Real One) highly Favors IRAQ and other areas around the World.. and HE Claims Its All HIS, which I BELIEVE IT IS.. "ALL" and "Everything In IT"..
