Personally I am waiting on news out of Iraq directly. They were supposed to vote yesterday – now it looks like today they vote on actual budget figures. [What bearing does iraqs vote have on us and the RV?  Will it hold things up?]  No…I am looking at Iraq as a symptom. They will not vote to move forward until the RV/GCR is released. IMO They are just one of the earliest places to see something happening. I believe when the RV/GCR goes…they will be allowed to vote on their budget. No more holding them back.
