Baghdad Wants A Billion Dollars For Damage To The City And We Should Pay Them…

Iraq’s capital wants the United States to apologize and pay $1 billion for the damage done to the city not by bombs but by blast walls and Humvees since the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein. — Reuters

Many of you are probably choking on this very reasonable demand from the politicians in Baghdad.

But, folks, fair is fair. We have a friendly relationship with Iraq and so, since we did the damage, we should pay for it. That’s a small price to pay to help keep our friendship strong, isn’t it?

Of course, since we’re agreeing that fair is fair and all, we would need Iraq to pay us the $709 billion the war cost us during the Bush years and, just because we’re good guys, we won’t even charge Iraq for the money we’ve spent since then or for freeing them from the tyranny of Saddam Hussein.

Just consider that a bonus from your pals in America, guys!
