Med says to (14:07:56):
WELL TO THE DS NEWS UPDATE
I AM EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH THE NEWS
THE POPULAR UPRISING IS GETTING MOMENTUM
AND WHAT JUST HAPPENED IN EGYPT
WAS A HUGE HELP
AND IF THEY CAN MOVE PEOPLE FROM ALL AROUND THE GREEN ZONE
TO THE GZ FOR A DEMONSTRATION OR SIT IN
IT WOULD BE IMPRESSIVE
I SEE THAT SISTANI'S REASONS FOR NOT TALKING TO NUJAIFI
IS THAT HE IS SO DISGUSTED WITH PARLIAMENT
THAT HE WOULD NOT EVEN MEET WITH HIM
ALSO
I SEE THAT WE ARE HAVING IMPLEMENTATION MOVES ON THE FREE MARKET ECONOMY
AND THE UN IS ALSO INVOLVED
THIS IS GREAT NEWS FOR US
I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE U.N. AND U.S. WILL NOT ALLOW VIOLENCE TO OVERTAKE IRAQ
THEY WILL HAVE THE SECURITY FORCES ON A TITE ROPE
AND IF WRONGFUL KILLINGS TAKE PLACE
I EXPECT A MOVE BY OUR MILITARY
TO STOP IT
WITH U.N. APPROVAL
I SEE THAT THEY WANT TO MOVE ON PASSING THE BUDGET BY TUESDAY
AND THAT ANYMORE NEGOTIATIONS ON THE BUDGET PER MINISTRY
WILL BE DONE DOOR TO DOOR BY ALLAWI'S STRATEGIC COUNSEL
SO THAT IS THE WAY THEY WILL SHIFT FUNDING
IF YOU HAVE BILLIONS FOR AGRICULTURE
AND THEY NEVER USE IT
THEN IT SHOULD GO TO THE ONE THAT IS UNDERFINANCED
SO APPARENTLY THIS IS HOW THE WILL DO IT
THEN IT ALSO WILL KEEP PROJECTS MOVING
ESPECIALLY THE IMPORTANT ONES FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
NOW RIGHT NOW IRAQ HAS TO BE THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE MIDDLE EAST
AND RIGHTFULLY SO
I HAD A FEELING THAT THIS STUFF THAT MALIKI AND THE DAWA PARTY
ALONG WITH THE SFC RULINGS ON THE ELECTIONS
WOULD BACKFIRE
YES HE IS PM
BUT THIS IS A SITUATION OF A LEOPARD NOT CHANGING HIS SPOTS
IF HE WAS CORRUPT AND INEFFECTIVE
BEFORE.....JUST WHAT IN THE HELL DID THEY EXPECT FROM HIM THIS TIME
OF COURSE MORE OF THE SAME
HE IS JUST A TERRIBLE LEADER
BOTTOM LINE
NOW I ALSO SEE THAT THE LEADER OF THE ISLAMIC COUNSEL
WHO IS PART OF THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE
AND WAS THE ONE WHO SUPPORTED MAHDI FOR PM
IS NOW CALLING OUT MALIKI AS PRETTY MUCH A DEUCHE BAG
THE GREAT THING ABOUT THIS MOVE BY THE PEOPLE
IS THAT IT IS NOT JUST THE POOR AGAINST THE ENTITLED
MALIKI WILL LOSE SUPPORT QUICKLY

Mountainman says to (14:17:15):
Med have you heard anything about a possible vote of no confidence against Maliki happening this Sunday?

Med says to (14:17:17):
AND YOU WILL SEE HIS SO CALLED SUPPORTERS
DROP LIKE FLIES
NO I DID NOT MM
IS THERE ANYTHING IN THE NEWS TO BACK THAT UP FOR US
LIKE EVEN THE ENQUIRER
OR WORLD GLOBE
LOL
I DON'T CARE JUST ANYTHING WRITTEN
SCRATCH IT OUT ON A NOTEPAD
FOR ME
AND I WILL USE IT
LIKE I SAID I THOUGHT HE HAD 30 DAYS LEFT
TO MAKE AN IMPACT
AND QUICK FIXES
AND THAT TIME IS WINDING DOWN
WAS THERE ANYTHING MM
OR JUST A RUMOR
HELLO

Mountainman says to (14:19:28):
just talk passed on to me

Med says to (14:19:33):
OH OK

tdk says to (14:20:09):
Med is that 30 days ending on the 14th of feb
Mountainman says to (14:20:21):
also heard the NY stock exchange is in talks with the Iraqi stock exchange for them to become active

Med says to (14:20:26):
I CAN'T REMEMBER WHEN THE EXACT DATE IS THAT I SAID IT

tdk says to (14:20:37):
ok thanks

Dinar Mark says to (14:22:03):
What do you think will transpire starting Sunday in parliment????

Med says to (14:22:15):
HONEST DM
I AM TOTALLY A MIFF
ON THIS

Dinar Mark says to (14:22:40):
Well at least your honest!!!! LOL

Med says to (14:22:40):
CUZ I THINK MUCH IS GOING TO BE DETERMINED BY FEAR
AND THAT MEANS DYNAMICS CHANGING
AND IN THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT IN THE ME AND IRAQ
SO MUCH COULD HAPPEN TO MAKE THEM GET OFF THEIR BUTTS

Mountainman says to (14:23:25):
Iraqis do understand fear...

Med says to (14:23:31):
YUP
NOW I HOPE THOUGH WE DO NOT DO WHAT WE DID IN SALVADOR
THERE WAS THE SAME SITUATION
A TERRIBLE DEMOCRATIC GOVT
WHO DID MUCH OF THE SAME GOING ON HERE
AND THE PEOPLE REVOLTED
AND OVERRAN THE MILITARY
AND INTO THE CAPITAL OF SALVADOR
WE HAD HELD ALL EQUIPMENT AND FUEL FROM THE SALVADOR GOVT
IT WAS ON THE VERGE OF FALLING
THEN THE MORON FROM THE STATE DEPT DOWN THERE
SAID IT WAS TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF GUERILLA'S
WHICH WAS BS
AND REAGAN MADE THE ONE BAD MOVE
HE RELEASED THE TANKS AND EQUIPMENT
TO THE SALVADOR ARMY
THEY BEAT BACK THE REVOLT
AND THE GOVT STAYED
IT IS STILL AN AWFUL GOVT
BUT WE HELP IT FOR ONE REASON
IT IS CALLED A DEMOCRACY
AND DURING THE TIME I WAS TRAINING SALVADOR NG
AT BRAGG
WE WERE KNEE DEEP IN ISSUES WITH NICARAUGA
AND CUBA
AND WE NEEDED A FOOTHOLD SOMEWHERE
ALONG WITH HONDURAS
OK SORRY ABOUT THE LESSON IN HISTORY
BUT IT IS SO SIMILAR
I JUST HOPE O. OR B. DOES NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE
THAT IS ALL

indian 1 says to (14:29:00):
going to b an interesting weekend !!!! the best that we have had in awhile.

Med says to (14:29:08):
I THINK SO INDIAN
LIKE I SAID
I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE EVENTS
AND I THINK THAT THE EGYPTIAN ISSUE
HAS SPILLED OVER
AND GETTING MOBAREK OUT
IS HUGE NOT JUST FOR EGYPT
BUT IT IS A BOOST FOR THE IRAQI'S
THAT IT CAN BE DONE
REMEMBER HE HAD A FOOTHOLD OF POWER FOR 30 YRS
AND UNLIKE IRAQ
THEY DIDN'T NEED THE US MILITARY TO COME IN AND REMOVE HIM
REALLY
AFTER SADAT WAS MURDERED
IT WENT DOWN THE CRAPPER
OK I HAVE TO DO AN ERRAND FOR LYDIA
SORRY GANG

GOP says to (14:31:08):
It sounds like the people and the military are on the same page in Egypt. Med you have said all along (I think) that if the Iraqi military side with the people it is over for the leaders of Iraq, unless they get it going
angel42b says to (14:31:10):
I like it Med had my coff and a update from you at same time GREAT ty

Med says to (14:31:15):
BUT WE ARE GETING READY FOR THE PARTY
YW ANGEL

dinarfrank says to (14:32:04):

Med says to (14:32:07):

TO KEEP US ALL INFORMED
JUST SO MUCH GOING ON IN OUR FAMILY RIGHT NOW
I AM JUGGLING ALLOT

guardian says to (14:32:30):
a day without med is like a day without sunshine we appreciate your input
jessieboy says to (14:32:38):
How are you both today

Med says to (14:32:40):
AND GUARDIAN GREAT POSTS
I AM FINE
LYDIA IS WORRIED
BUT I HAD MY BEST FRIEND COME OVER
HE WAS IN AFGHANISTAN
AND I ASKED HIM TO EXPLAIN TO HER
HE SAID MOST LIKELY JAMIE WILL BE IN KHANDIHAR
BEING IN CSC
AND HE SAID HE SHOULD BE OK THERE
THOUGH HE IS A COMBAT ENGINEER
SO THAT ONE WORD STICKS OUT
COMBAT
OK I HAVE TO RUN

jessieboy says to (14:35:17):
how long is his tour there

Med says to (14:35:28):
I AM THINKING 12 MONTHS
THAT IS WHAT I HAD
SO I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY HAVE CHANGED THEM
THE USMC IS LIKE 13
FOR SOME REASON THEY DID A BAKERS DOZEN
OR CAN'T COUNT
OK GANG I WILL PROBABLY NOT BE ON
OR IF SO
LATE
OK

angel42b says to (14:36:50):
