A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Payback's a ... you know: Companies from France and Germany, among other countries, are being excluded from competition for contracts to rebuild Iraq.

Of course, apologists for the Axis of Weasels are decrying the move as counterproductive.

Please, can someone explain to me using something I'd like to call "logic" why we should award contracts (after all, much of this money is $20 billion Congress approved earlier this year) to companies whose governments supported Saddam Hussein? Would Iraqis actually want their money from their oil sales to go to the French and Germans who wanted them to keep dying under Saddam Hussein's brutal dictatorship?

Why don't we just make a deal. When we liberate a country from a brutal dictator, we get to decide where the rebuilding contracts go. When you liberate a country, you can decide where those rebuilding contracts go.

Sound fair?
