February 15, 2017 Mnt Goat News Brief
I bring you much news today.
I did not plan to issue another news letter so soon but there is just do much good news pouring out of Iraq that I wanted to bring it to you today. I want you to see how Iraq is moving towards that market economy they so desire and to enactment of the National Reconciliation law (or movement).
I also want to clarify once again some bogus statements that many of these so called intel “gurus” keep telling you. It is about these ATM cards again. They claim just recently the “ATM cards are loaded with the new rate”. Really?
Do you know just how silly and absolutely ridiculous this statement is. First of all the cards do not have a rate on them. Secondly if the are using a new rate the rate must come from the currency exchanges. The exchanges do yet have an RV rate so how can this be the truth?
This is how the process works-
The citizen establishes a savings or checking account at the bank. The bank issues a Debit card so they can withdrawal money out of the account. They can do this by using the ATM for cash or point of sale at the market place or mall when shopping.
So when a purchase is made the transaction goes to the bank to find if the account is real. Then verifies that enough money is available. If you are inside Iraq it simply disperses the money either as cash (ATM) or electronic cash to the merchants account. Remember there is no conversion (exchange rate needed in Iraq since you are in the country of origin for the transaction. A dinar is a dinar is a dinar within Iraq. So why would the people in Iraq even need a new rate loaded anywhere to use their debit card?
However, if you are outside the country of Iraq the situation is different. If you use your debit card the dinar will have to be converted to the currency of the country you are now in. For instance if you are traveling and in the USA using your Iraqi debit card the bank must now go to the currency exchanges and find the latest exchange rate for the dinar (IQD) so it can convert it to US dollars (USD). The dollars then comes out as cash (ATM) or electronic cash to the merchant. Likewise, if you are in Europe it will convert it to Euros and must go out to the exchanges to find the latest exchange rate from dinar to euro so it can convert it. Or if you are in Kuwait it will convert the Iraqi dinar to Kuwaiti dinar.
Did you just hear me tell you anything about a rate being taken from the debit card? So why do these gurus keep telling you that a new rate is on the card?
I have put the challenge out to the dinar community over a week already asking the source who started this rumor(s) to prove it. So far they can not prove it. So my only conclusion must be this is either darn right ignorance and/or intentional misleading. Do they even know what they are saying or just regurgitating what some “secret” source told them. Are they parrots or do they have a human brain?
I do not find so much frustration with the source who begins these kinds of rumors, but instead my frustration comes more from the so called intel “gurus” who should be smart enough to verify them first before passing and supporting these rumors with everyone else. After all they do have a responsibility. Of course this is just one example of this.
They can no longer hide behind saying like “I report you decide”. Anyone can do this and so we don’t need you to just pass on this garbage. Instead we need you to clarify and verify. After all you are the ones that claim to be so smart, snug and knowledgeable…yes or no? Is this asking too much?
This ATM card rate rumor has been floating around now for over 3 years and it keeps resurfacing over and over again, as do many of these other rumors that get everyone excited for absolutely nothing. If it was a lie before why would it be true now?
So now you know the truth on this one and I hope I was helpful. Simply ignore it unless someone brings you some sane reasoning and shows you a bank statement showing the new RV rate of the dinar ($3.41, $3.71, $4.25 etc..), as they claim it is “on the card”….lol…lol…. So next time you hear it don’t just take their word for it, tell them to prove it to you. Be insistent and watch how they back down and paddle upstream and usually make up yet another lie to cover their tracks. Yes – you are smart enough to ask for the truth and you deserve the truth.
I want to emphasize again we are waiting and watching for news from the CBI on progressing forward once again on the “project to delete the zeros”. This will be an indicator to us that we are near and the RV is close at hand. We are still only mid way in this EARLY 2017 saga as it is only mid February. We still have over a month to go. Remember we were told it could take up to 3 more months to get Mosul liberated. WE know they fully intended to be completed with ISIS by the end of 2016. We all did not want to hear this news and so we make up other stories to cover it over, as if this news did not matter. Then, like many other delays they told us about that we ignored, we wonder why the RV is taking so long. Then only months later we reminisce and see that in fact we should have listened. It was right there in front of our noses all along….lol….lol….
But remember news of delays are not good for business since they don’t sell currency, get people to click on intel forums or donate to their sites.
NO Rumors, NO Hype, just the FACTS!
As always my comments are in italic RED.

(I bring this article to you today since this is a very good example of just what we would expect to see in a market economy that is evolving away from an oil centered, government run economy.
Here are some of the highlights – 1 )the banks now have the capital to loan out for car loans (since the people have opened savings accounts established in order to use their debit cards), 2) the car dealers make a profit so now there can be a robust vehicle businesses springing up, 3) gas stations, 4)the more cars the more repair shops that will be needed, 5) the insurance companies make a profit, 6) the government also takes in taxes in fees for registration, etc..)

(morality? Really? Is there such a thing in Iraq? I think that for the many of us following this RV saga over these many years we can easily see the lack of morality in the Iraqi leaders and many of the citizens. Personally I see this as “the” major roadblock to any reconciliation. It must come from the top down. Next they need to clean up these agitators who instigate the violence. This will mean cleaning out the Iranian weeds. You are hearing this again from me about these Iranian influence. If it does not stop Iraq will never, never have peace and stability)
