Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"President Bush's request for an $87 billion supplemental-spending bill, at least $20 billion of which is for the rebuilding of Iraq, has met with surprisingly stiff opposition...
This begs the question: Why should U.S. citizens have to pay one additional penny for this rebuilding when Americans have already paid tens of billions of dollars for the liberation of Iraq with a huge military operation and more preciously, thousands of our own soldiers' blood?"
