Bush went on to describe the contracts as a reward for risk: "Make sure everybody understands that men and women from our country, who proudly wear our uniform, risked their life to free Iraq," he said. "Men and women from other countries in a broad coalition risked their lives to free Iraq. And the expenditure of U.S. dollars will reflect the fact that U.S. troops and other troops risked their life."


Sounds a lot like he's saying that we risked the lives of American people so that we could get paid.

Actually I can't figure out what he's saying. Where's this from?

It's from a CNN article.

Having read the article, I think what he's saying is: We killed, we get to rebuild.

Okay, I just wanted to write it that way because it rhymes. To expand a bit more, If your country participated in the killing and destruction then your corporation gets a chance to economically benefit from the reconstruction.

In other words, to the victor go the spoils.
