Those Ungrateful Iraqis

"Congress needs to be more proactive and aggressive in evaluating what is the progress in Iraq," [US Republican congressman Jim Gerlach] said. "The Iraqi government shouldn't feel like it's got a blank check on American lives and American dollars". ("Republican Lawmakers Losing Positive Tone On Course Of War", SF Chron 22/7).

Wow. First we invade them on transparently false pretenses, then we cause years of lethal chaos due to our arrogance and the imposition of deeply stupid and utterly oblivious policies designed mostly for domestic consumption… and then we have the cheek to accuse them of drawing a blank cheque on American lives and wallets?
