They need to get back on their feet first, then we deserve to be repaid.

Considering the facts that one can find from places other than the bought and paid for media, I think it's a moot point. We were drawn into a fear driven reaction to terrorism by a political machine that would do anything in order to force it's point of view down our throats, i.e. 9/11. As a result of our reaction and lack of understanding and lack of a thorough investigation of the political situation and the devastation foisted on the American public by the events of 9/11 we abandoned our Constitution and once again sent our sons, fathers, husbands, daughters, and wives to their death in an effort to shove Democracy down their (Iraq's) throats in retaliation for an event created and perpetrated by our own government to justify the need to liberate an unconscionsable megalomaniac that was on the CIA payroll and now was getting to big for his britches. So we totally destroy the communications infrastructure so Haliburton and other Bush buddies can come in after liberation and soak up the multibillion dollar government contracts while our enlisted men and women are underprotected and under equipped and led by ticket punchers that only want to worry about their future and haven't got the foggiest idea about learning from mistakes made in battle. We have abandoned our own fighting forces in favor of corporate interests that literally run this country. As far as I can see the results so far are corruption on both sides, a puppet government steeped in 1,000 year old jihad mentality, and more and more of "Our" best fighting forces getting exposed to radiation from depleted uranium munitions, coming home to piss poor medical treatment and who knows what the long term effects will be? Just my two cents worth.
