The Iraqis will love this

The US Senate has voted to convert half of a $20bn aid package to rebuild Iraq into a loan.

You can imagine how this will go down with the Iraqis. The US invades their country, smashes the place up, then sends them the (inflated) bill for fixing it. I wouldn't pay such a "debt" if someone did that to my house, so why should Iraq pay it when someone does it to their country?
