The war's mostly over. So, what now? A lot of people have been talking about the reconstruction of postwar Iraq. Predictably, Russian, French and German companies want us to let them in. They were happy to prop up Saddam when they thought that meant big bucks, but now that they've been proven wrong, they don't see why that should stand in the way of them profiting off the very people they wanted to keep enslaved.
So basically: maximize profits and reduce risks. Funny, that sounds like the business plan of an American company.
