News Iraq Has Budget Surplus

    I am a bit surprised at this. We need to get a handle on where all of this money is going. They certainly won't spend their money on rebuilding infrastructure as long as we keep spending ours.

    I can't say I would blame them for wringing every cent out of the U.S. for reconstruction and otherwise especially since we're talking about withdrawing. Like I've said elsewhere on PF about the Iraq War: we broke it, we bought it. In taking the preemptive warfare liberation strategy - based on good intelligence or bad - we volunteered to be responsible for the peace and stability of Iraq, perhaps for generations to come. (We're responsible, not that we'll necessarily fulfill that responsibility.)
