No Thanks, We’re Fine Without You

Seems that the Germans now want a piece of reconstucting Iraq. Guess they are having some monetary issues now that the money train, otherwise know as Oil for Food, has dried up.

No contracts, no preferred status, nothing. Of course, that is going to be up the the duly elected government of Iraq, who, I would suspect, will take a much dimmer view of the Germans (and French), then we will, as President Bush extends an olive branch to many of the world governments.
