Those Contracts

Isn’t it possible that the stiffing of Germany, France and Russia is simply prelude to Jim Baker’s Iraqi debt-cancellation world tour? It just seems so obvious to me now. He wanted some leverage and to send these countries a signal that we could play hardball before he left. It’s fine with me as a policy or as a negotiating ploy. I mean if I hear the EUniks say this decision was “unhelpful” one more time, I’m gonna go nuts. Look at France last year, or this year, for a definition of “unhelpful.”
