I don't see Iraq on that list.
I remember right after the original invasion, the first set of anti-American riots were over the US military government policy that set the price of gas at basically double the price before the invasion.
Of course, we raised the price of gasoline to 2 cents a gallon from 1 cent a gallon.
It's a well established fact that when you subdize anything, you get more of it. Including people who "can't" take care of themselves.
