Not Gonna Happen Soon

The Iraqis have approved a law to equally distribute their oil wealth among all citizens. As I've said all along, this should have been the policy from the start, but the CPA never implemented it. If this would have happened, it would have went a long way toward halting the burgeoning insurgency.

The problem with implementing it now is that the entire Iraqi banking system has been dismantled. I honestly have no idea how they are even going to attempt to do this. I guess once a year every Iraqi will have to line up at some government office to be handed their payment in cash.
