Just been reading about how French and German companies will be denied any contracts for rebuilding Iraq – but Dick Cheney and others in his ilk will likely benefit financially from the rebuilding contracts. Here is a simple equation for getting money from American taxpayers.

Taxpayers pay money for US military, and invasion force, circa $100 billion – taxpayers money spent on blowing up a country – leaders of US who started the war awarded lucrative contracts to rebuild the country – revenue to come from Iraqi oil sales – oil that incidentally goes to the US.

Just a thought.
