"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Good thing we are stealing Iraq's oil. Otherwise rebuilding Iraq would be even more expensive for us.

Commitments to improve Iraq’s water, electrical, public health and telecommunications systems were listed as spending priorities for the next six months’ national budget, according to Paul Bremer, the administrator for the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq, on July 7, 2003.

Budgetary expenditures amount to over nine trillion Iraqi dinars (six billion dollars), half of which will be financed by Iraqi oil sales. The United States government will provide an additional ID4.5 trillion (three billion dollars) for Iraqi reconstruction, Bremer said.
