3-5-2013 Intel Guru SteveI [This must be driving your contacts crazy too. If they are watching this budget stuff first hand, they must want to slap somebody till a vote falls out.] For some strange reason, I feel a bit better about tomorrow and so do our contacts. Remember, the Kurds have promised over a dozen time they would vote and did just the opposite, so I am hopeful that this one will fly. Something just feels different and I cannot put my finger on it.

3-5-2013 Intel Guru SteveI I totally agree with these [OCrush's] statements. We are almost done.
3-5-2013 Intel Guru OCrush Barzani has been pushing his initiative all of last week and is continuing to do so this week. There is much more happening besides the budget. Debt is being paid to foreign countries and the dfi protection expires, I believe in May. This truly is incredible. We have never seen so much activity concerning these matters. We now believe the budget will go forward when the GOI has completed there task incorporating everything. This is all very positive and we think its just a matter of time (short). Cheers All:)) PS: It really is all positive news despite the fact the budget has not passed (yet:) [post 2 of 2]
3-5-2013 Intel Guru OCrush I spoke to my cousin. He believes the erbil agreement and hcl have been passed. When this happened he does not know. What he knows is Exxon and a Chinese oil company are discussing a joint agreement on the oil field that Exxon was going to sell ( a percentage). Now, the deputy of oil has proceeded to tell him the oil minister and Maliki are adjusting (or has) this contract to reflect Exxons Kurdish contract. If that is the case the HCL has passed. You see the amended hcl (which the Kurds follow with their contracts) are more lucrative for oil companies and will benefit bagdad to bring in higher investments from the existing oil companies and new bidders.

3-5-2013 Newshound/Intel Guru BGG Article: "Mutlaq denies Karbouli, has been nominated and the Ministry of Finance instead of al-Issawi" This issue with al-Isawi did nothing but fan the flames further – Maliki is convinced if he keeps up the pressure on his opponents – they will give up. This has not been the case…the Iraqi people have been very slow to anger, but I don’t see them just giving up now. This is only going to keep coming until he does something right.
3-5-2013 Newshound Guru SWFloridaGuy Members don't bother to show because they know they have yet to reach an agreement and there will not be a vote. This cannot continue indefinitely though and I don't see it dragging on much longer. I believe that eventually international pressure and support will lead to a breakthrough with the budget/Article 140/HCL and help to overcome the remaining obstacles between the Federal government and the Kurdistan region. They must resolve these disputes in order to encourage foreign investors/corporations who also fund Iraq's growth. The elections are also coming up and progress must be made by parties who will be looking to garner support in the near future. [post 2 of 2]
