Should the United States exclude countries that did not participate in the war in Iraq from getting contracts to rebuild the country?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 11, 2003
“Yes. If they didn’t want to take part in the dirty work, why should they get the benefits from it?”
“I don’t think they should exclude them. Then it really does look like it was a war for profit and they lied to everyone about the reason for going in there.”
“I think it’s absolutely appropriate. If they didn’t share the risk, they shouldn’t share the reward. They thought it was too risky. It’s still a risky place, and they shouldn’t be there.”
“No, because I feel like the reason Bush went to war was for companies like Halliburton, of which Dick Cheney used to be CEO, to make money.”
