I think it was 2- 3 months and they want to know where all the money deposited came from.  They only care about the accounts where the down payment is coming from. other accounts you dont have to mention they exist. IIRC they want to make sure the money coming from account for the down payment is YOUR money and not a temporary loan from someone else.
Make sure not to use quicken loans as your lender!
Correct. It can either be gifted from a family member or income that can be verified not to be a loan

New update. It says that all thats new is the GDPR compliance. Should I trust them? Or they can screw that up too?
I would wait for someone else to try it first...

You think sanctions alone will stop Iran from getting nukes?
No time to elaborate

1) Iran does business with the EU and international community in general meaning that it effects them much more

2) Iran has ambitions in the international theater ( Revolutionary Guards, Syria, Yemen etc ) and need to back able to fund them.

We have had sanctions for x amount of years. All that did is let them get nukes.
I wasn't disagreeing with you
A crane without a crane operator is worthless and doesn't mean cranes don't work.
He is trying to say that if the sanctions weren't administered properly it doesn't show that they don't work.
It's more complicated than that. For the sanctions to work you need China and Russia to play along, as they aren't involved in international trade.

While Trump has been successful in getting both of them to agree to tougher sanctions, they will both continue using that leverage to their benefit.

Bottom line China has 95% of the cards here

Lol. Was waiting for this day. I'm concerned about the future of Whois....
Why? They will need to hide more info, what else?

What if they expand their nuclear program?
Your right.

That's why the intense focus on sanctions. At this point it's either the sanctions will break them or the negotiations will bear fruit.

None of them are good options. But neither is the military option. And that's why we stand here...

We are in agreement. The issue now is SK. This would be unacceptable to them. IMHO they would accept a bad deal with China to prevent a war. I guess like the Iran deal. A bad deal but better than the alternative.
If it's direct war or a bad agreement then you're right. However it's a suicide mission for NK to start a war ( China won't back then it they start it ).

Therefore the status qou has worked for the last 60+ years. And will continue to be the case unless they have a decent agreement.

So we have 25k troops there for their protection but really can't protect them?  :)

It seems like there is no scenario that would result in 0 casualties. They are there to minimize it,and to ensure the end result. The end of NK as we know it.

I am not all over the place and don't disagree with you. Yes we have troops their for their protection. This is where we might disagree. Winning a war with millions dying IMHO is not doing a very good job of protecting them.

It seems like we actually agree completely...

11
I am not disagreeing with you. The point is massive amount of SK's will die and that IMHO is unacceptable to SK. They want a deal.
You are all over the place today...

This was in reference to the discussion on why SK relies on the US. And the point was that there are thousands of US troops for that specific reason.

If SK wants a deal? Does the US want a deal? Of course! An agreement is a great thing, IF ITS A GOOD DEAL. I therefore give credit here to Trump for working on one.

Now for the war scenario's..

"Most defense experts would agree there's no question that the U.S. would win in a war with North Korea, but many have concluded that millions could die in the process, including hundreds of thousands of U.S. military personnel as well as civilians in Korea, Japan and Guam."

I have no idea but would you happen to know how many troops NK has? Also what are the troops going to do against a missile attack let alone a nuke?
1) NK has over 1 million troops. But SK has hundreds of thousands of troops as well

2) I can't tell you what the US plan to defend SK or defeat NK Korea is, but the "reason" that they are there is to defend SK. And from all the talk about another Korean war, it seems like the concern isn't winning, just at what cost. ( 1 ppl from Seoul dead seems to be the standard )

It's also the reason for installing THAAD.

Whose going to be the first to post that it worked?
Well it depends if they ignore it or send "cancelation" emails

14
I hope you are kidding.
Absolutely not. That's the reason they are there.

15
So nothing we did in the Middle East was intended in part to help Israel? No US troops died because of it?
Let's stay in context, it was in reference to why SK relies on the US while Israel doesn't.

( If you to start a new discussion the US has many interests aligned with Israel that shape many of our policies regarding the ME, but again it's not our fight )
Why do they need to trust anyone?

Israel has never placed their trust in anyone. They would be crazy to do so. The same goes for SK.
