    When Barbarians sacked Rome, they hung around, raping women, slaughtering children and burning buildings, until Rome agreed to pay a large sum of gold, weighed out by a scale. When the Roman Senators complained, the Barbarian leader threw his sword on the scale making it that much heavier and said something to the effect of “Woe to the Vanquished”. America took over Iraq because their leader would not comply with the terms of the cease fire, continually firing at aircraft, hiding weapons technology any one piece of which constituted a violation of the cease fire including the binary sarin canister and buried gas centrifuge, even attempting assassinations of former American Presidents. This could be logistically useful, it would actually make attacking Iran easier as a large army can march in to Iran from Every Border, controlling all supply transit and America has no reason to give the slightest care to the welfare of Iraq, because frankly, they don’t deserve to be rebuilt.
