Some demand they use it for themselves
A projected surplus in Iraq seems to be a good thing for their budget. It would mean that they can now start to add to the country’s infrastructure with building programs and getting the country ready for when Obama takes the troops out – but that has me thinking.
Why should they?
Would that surplus, if it turns out to be real cash money, not be better held back for a later date and invested in programs that will help schools, medical hospitals, retirement funds?
The US has devastated Iraq. They were the ones who went in to bomb the living Christ out of the country – for no reason whatsoever, and now that this has happened – people are asking that Iraq use projected funds to rebuild what the US destroyed.
Shouldn’t the US treasury pay for every brick and bridge they have demolished?
After all – Iraq was a sovereign nation and didn’t have any WMDs, didn’t threaten the US – in fact, they did nothing other than 1. Have a lot of oil, 2. Buy loads of weapons etc off of the US.
The autopsy of this war is about to begin – many things are coming to the for now that the incumbent president is losing his grip. One of those things is that the US had no right in anyway to invade. As that is the case – should the invading nation pay reparations for that invasion?
