wikipedia: Cost of War

The U.S. taxpayer is paying to rebuild Iraq, while the Iraq government has $79 billion dollars sitting around in bank accounts unused. That nonfunctioning government is sitting on a huge pile of cash while the Iraq people do not have clean water, reliable electricity, or any of the things that constitute modern life.
Remember when Paul Wolfowitz said the war would pay for itself? Only if you are Exxon, or Halliburton, or the Iraq government.
