In MarkZ 

[It’s Ramadan in Iraq – I thought everything was shut down?] Well, they didn’t shut down this Ramadan…they are still working and things are still going. A couple things were happening over the weekend. One- they have agreed to a budget implementation meeting which is occurring as we speak. It started 11 AM Iraqi time. They are going over the implementation of this budget. This is cool because we do expect the rate change. An imminent rate change. I have spoken to a couple of contacts on the ground in Iraq and it is not in effect yet. But they are expecting it at any moment. On the domestic front I do have a couple of key players that were not moved until this weekend…they were to be in place on Sunday-yesterday. I know you are tired of it but hang on to your seats. The chatter everywhere is fantastic.
