View Full Version : Iraq oil surplus 80billion+

This raises a really good point. Tonight I witnessed someone ranting about how the only reason the U.S. went to IRAQ is to take oil. Yet we see this report, where the truth is the IRAQI government is profiting hugely from oil and newfound security. Meanwhile the American tax paper is paying for this huge burden, yet the rest of the world still smack talks the U.S. for entering IRAQ. I'm not quite sure if this money should be used to payback American tax payers, but i'm damn right sure that it should be used to improve security, and infrastructure, not relying on the American tax payer.

What do you think?

That's a good point, should the U.S. be footing the bill completely?
