More positiveness about Iraq/ Iraqi Dinar!

I found two more positive articles/ news on Iraq and the Iraqi dinar (click on the titles to read it all):

1) Trends You Don't Hear About

"The economy. GDP doubled from 2003 to 2004, and was up double digits in 2005"

"Now, for the first time in half a century, Iraq is exporting food. Agriculture has come back big time"

"Currency Exchange Rates. The Iraqi currency (the dinar) trades in a narrow range", "But the dinar floats against other local currencies (like the Kuwaiti dinar and the Iranian rial)"

2) Iranian Foreign Minister Meets With Iraqi Leaders in Baghdad

"Now both the United States and Iran have an enormous stake in Iraq's stability and have considerable influence on Baghdad's politics. The U.S.-led invasion, which helped empower long-oppressed Iraqi Shiites and Kurds, has allowed the Islamic Republic to gain unprecedented sway by working through allies in the two communities. Although the Americans and Iranians disagreed on the Nuclear issue, one thing they do agree on is a stable Iraq."
