#1 Seems to me that one of the top priorities is promptly getting Iraq's oil industry cranked up and running smoothly then. That's really the only way they're going to be able to pay for what's needed.

This is 20 Billion worth of contracts going to American businesses to rebuild. The cost will be paid for by the American tax payer intially, but Iraq will be more than able to pay it back once its complete.

The first Gulf War cost the U.S. nothing because we got our allies to pay for it, we did the leg work and handed them the Bill (primarily Kuwait).

This is a Loan going staright to American business that Iraq will eventually pay back in full. It's a win -> win for us.

#3 The problem is its very imperiallistic and anti-American to just say Iraq must pay this and this and give them a bill. Its much better if they offer to pay out of gratitude and out of their own best interests. How to make them see that is another matter.

#4 Bah. They can apply for a loan from Uncle Sam and pay it back in Oil.
