Rebuilding Iraq

I just finished watching a discussion on CNN with Wolf Blitzer, Jack Anderson and two other journalists. The discussion was about how terrible it was the Iraq gets to reap a windfall from their oil while the U.S. pays for their rebuilding. I agree with them. I think if Iraq can afford it, they should pay for their own rebuilding.

But one of the arguments many on the Left have used against the war in Iraq is that the war was all about how Republicans wanted the money from Iraqi oil. So it was rather interesting to find Left wing journalists arguing that we should take more of the money from Iraqi oil.
