Node Of Evil - Fair And Balanced Reporting

For those who feel the war on terrorism
could use a little "Structural Adjustment".

Hey all, here's something that's vitally important -- the U.N. aid program in Palestine is close to running out of funds. Please take a minute to donate something to help the Palestinian refugees. You can donate here. More information about the program can be found here.

We're here to welcome all who disagree with, or generally dislike, any aspect of the war on terrorism with open arms! Declare yourself an enemy of the state - join the Node Of Evil.

Quick Thought: If I understand the situation correctly, the U.S. is going to pay for the "reconstruction" of Iraq with revenues from the oil fields. I don't know whether or not the costs of the occupation are included, but even without the costs of maintaining U.S. and British troops in Iraq, this is still going to be a _very_ expensive undertaking. My question is, what happens when Iraq gets its democratically-elected government, something that's been promised for sometime in 2004? Is this new govenment suddenly going to assume huge debts that it must repay to the U.S. for any "reconstruction" costs that have been incurred? The situation in Iraq is developing in such a way that there is little hope for Iraq's financial independence in the near future, and a looming possibility of a huge debt burden, payable to the United States (along with thanks to the U.S. for kindly bombing Iraq's infrastructure out of existence in the first place). Africa, anyone?
