Not the impression we're receiving from the mainstream media, Leila.

Welcome back Sweetheart!

Which raises the question--what are the Iraqis doing with this money, do they think they are saving the surplus for a rainy day?

Good report: focus on this.

The sooner the Iraqi people begin to direct their questions about electricity and water where it belongs, the Iraq government, the sooner the Iraq government will begin to function like a government.

It is time for focus on US troops and Dept of State Security to stop, and the real issues directed at the people taking the oil money without restoring basic services.

Redirect all the negative focus on the US forces to the the Iraq government and the money flowing into their hands without restoring infrastructure and you will do more good than anything else you can report about.

If you have the information that expenditures are less than %1, then surely you have info where the other %99 went?

Ah yes! Blame the Iraqi people, the Iraqi government. Let me see, the USA spends billions blowing up things they should not blow up-hospitals,sewage plants,water plants , villages, women and children etc..The USA gives Halliburton millions/billions in contracts-they dont fix anything just pocket the money and Iraqis should pay to fix everything while the USA still occupies-so soldiers and radical extremists can then blow it all up again....good plan

Nancy- try breathing into a paper bag, which will prevent your thumbs from cramping from hyperventilation.

Yes, the Iraqi government pocketing the oil money flowing into their hands without restoring basic services is the focus.

No, US military are not the bad guys. Try to keep in mind the suicide bombers are not US military.

The paper bag helps, as does reason.

Susan

The US military has plenty of bad guys... I thought the Abu Ghraib scandal settled that.

And it is the US military, under orders of bush, who bombed and invaded the country - so, until the last US military person leaves, we are the ones responsible for every thing that happens. That comes from being an occupying power - which the Iraqi people never asked us to be in the first place.

batguano - you are the one who needs to learn to reason, and stop insulting people until then, okay?
