WASHINGTON (AP) - Iraq's financial free ride may be over. After five years, Republicans and Democrats seem to have found common ground on at least one aspect of the war. From the fiercest war foes to the most steadfast Bush supporters, they are looking at Iraq's surging oil income and saying Baghdad should start picking up the tab, particularly for rebuilding hospitals, roads, power lines and the rest of the shattered country.

"I think the American people are growing weary not only of the war, but they are looking at why Baghdad can't pay more of these costs. And the answer is they can," says Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska.

IMHO, we should have seized the oil fields in Kuwait, Iran and Iraq as collateral on the conflict we have engaged, mainly on their behalf's...
But then again we always expunge all foreign debts anyway, so who the hell cares?
