I mean they've done nothing wrong and were fairly awarded the contracts...right?

Anything that potentially increases the risk of Cheney finally kicking the bucket is good.

I'd guess the powers that be decided to temper the war profiteering to keep the critics quiet. Or something...
Are there any French contractors who can pick up the job?

Yep, its all about a Freedom for Iraq...


The US administration has decided to postpone four billion dollars in Iraq reconstruction work until after the June 30 transfer of power, in a bid to "maintain leverage over the next Iraqi government," it was reported, citing US officials.

Blah blah blah.

You guys complaining are the same ones who bitch when a country receiving foreign aid does something against our wishes and demands we stop the cash flow immediately.

Look, unless he just started saying "Ho ho ho!" and drives a sleigh, the last time I checked, Unca' Sam wore blue in addition to the red and white and he's pointing a finger in your face, not a candy cane. The guy is a bada$$ who's good to his friends, but also expects a return on his generosity to those who haven't proven themselves stalwart and trustworthy yet.

But I suppose you actually prefer to Saddam back in power, right?

So.. umm.. we bombed Baghdad in the name of liberating the Iraqi people but then we won't rebuild what we bombed until the "liberated" Iraqi people do what we want? I guess you use a different dictionary when looking up "generosity" than I do.

I don't see what this has to do with Saddam. Nice strawman though.

we don't need him back in power. our sorry arses are training iraqi's in masses in order to get a police force and army going in that country. but we're doing it quickly in order to transfer power fast. we're not doing it the right way and HUGE chunks of the people we are training are turning faster than madonna on a new fad.

its a mess waiting to happen...again. because we just can't seem to do things the right way.

The right way being, of course, the complete and utter elimination of all other countries besides the US. Except maybe England, since they're our buddies, and what the hell, keep France around to ridicule.
