Why are we still rebuilding Iraq when they are sitting on about 80B in oil profits?

That is the question, which the Bush Administration can not answer, but I can.

Simple, their cronies have harbored all those contracts in Iraq (i.e., Blackwater, Haliburton, KBR, etc.) and have made record profit off the backs of our taxes, our money.

That is why.

And Iraqi Authorities have been smart. Why should they shell over any money to rebuild anything, when it was the United States of America who entered this country illegally, anyway?

So, in the end it is the American public stuck with the tax bag, again. And it brings us back to the first question, why are we still paying to rebuild a country while they are sitting on a sack of money?

The Iraqi government could end the year with as much as a $79 billion budget surplus as ever-increasing oil revenues pile on top of leftover income the Iraqis still haven't spent on their national rebuilding effort, congressional auditors say.

A report by the Government Accountability Office made public Tuesday prompted renewed calls from senators that Baghdad pay more of the bill for its own reconstruction, which has been heavily supported with U.S. funds.

The projected Iraq surplus, including unspent money from 2005 through 2008, has been building because of rising world oil prices, increasing Iraqi oil production, the government's inability to execute budgets for spending its money and persistent violence in the country, the GAO said. continue
