"...we need to put continuous and increasing pressure on the Iraqis to settle their political differences, to pay for their own reconstruction with their oil windfalls, and to take the lead in conducting military operations."The (dis)Associated Press says, Iraq has about $30 billion in surplus funds in U.S. banks. "Iraq is looking at a potential boon in oil revenue this year, possibly as much as $100 billion in 2007 and 2008. Meanwhile, the U.S. military is having to buy its fuel on the open market, paying on average $3.23 a gallon and spending some $153 million a month in Iraq on fuel alone."
Hey, weren't we already stealing Iraqi oil? At least, that's what the Dem Libs have been claiming since the battle began. If that's true, why are we paying open market prices for the oil we stole? That would be like paying Mexico $15 million for the Southwest territories we stole in 1848. That would be stupid.
