Isn't the US trying to tighten the economic ban on Iran? So why is Iraq - the country that the US is feeding, funding and policing - abuses those funds to ease the Iranian pains?
In my opinion this should be the very last straw. The Shiites of Iraq - whom we've been told would welcome us after the liberation from Saddam - have taken Iranian arms and terrorized US troops and Iraqi civilians. Now they want to take US funds - which we should have not put there to begin with - and use them to build Iranian refineries. Absolutely infuriating.
