    What have you learnt in school today? Nothing? After paid billion of dollars to send you to school?

    Unfortunatedly, USA is not alone in making such bad investments. Look at Iran with Syria and the Iraqi investment may look pretty good!

    The main problem of Iraq is the neighbors who are afraid for the poison of democracy. They are really investing in keep the status quo of monarchies, sultanates, dictatorships etc.
    In case an Iraqi spring happens as in North Africa since all elements are in place or poverty, lack of infrastructure, lot of nepotism and corruption the the danish saga of the naked king will happen.
    If you do not know this saga, it is too bad and you need some education. Wait for an arabic saga of the naked king.
